MINNEAPOLIS -- Give Ravens cornerback Fabian Washington credit for his honesty, if nothing else. You think he played poorly against the Vikings on Sunday? So poorly that he absolutely deserved to be yanked in the third quarter and replaced by Frank Walker? Washington agrees with you. In fact, he thought the Ravens' coaching staff made the right move putting him on the bench. "I was having a rough day, and I agree with them," Washington said. "The coaching staff has to do what's best for the team.

CLEVELAND - In what might pass as a preview of next year's defensive backfield, the Ravens' secondary weathered the storm that quarterback Derek Anderson and NFL fate threw at it yesterday. Here's how tough things were in Cleveland: Absent two injured starting cornerbacks, the Ravens had to have their next two corners overcome injuries as well. Remarkably, both Fabian Washington and Frank Walker came through the litmus test intact in a 37-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns. "Our secondary was battered and bruised and we've got guys down," safety Ed Reed said.

The Ravens have reached an agreement in principle with Chris Carr, a free-agent addition who provides depth at cornerback and a possible upgrade in the return game. Carr, 25, will sign a two-year, $5 million contract tomorrow after completing a physical at Ravens headquarters. It is believed the Ravens outbid their AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers, who were offering $800,000 less per season. Last season with the Tennessee Titans, Carr was fourth in the NFL on kickoff returns (28.1-yard average)

Ravens coach John Harbaugh strongly defended cornerback Frank Walker, who was accused by Steelers punter Mitch Berger of spitting in Berger's face toward the end of the Ravens' 13-9 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. "That's the first I heard that. I don't believe it for one second," Harbaugh said yesterday during his weekly news conference at the team's training facility in Owings Mills. "Frank Walker wouldn't do it; none of our players would do it. I don't believe it for one second." With 43 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Steelers kicker Jeff Reed converted an extra point after quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's 4-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Santonio Holmes.

As the Ravens try to extend their season with a playoff run, it seems like the perfect time to reflect on the highs and lows of the regular season: Offensive Most Valuable Player: Wide receiver Derrick Mason. Even with one healthy arm, he has been the most consistent threat. His 74 receptions double the total of any teammate. Defensive Most Valuable Player: Linebacker Ray Lewis. Some would argue safety Ed Reed has been better, but Lewis has been more valuable. On the field, running backs again fear running up the middle because of Lewis.

In the final seconds of Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the disgruntled voices emanating inside M&T Bank Stadium shouted "Refs, you [stink]" while a crowd of 71,161 waved their fingers at the officials. The Ravens, however, pointed at only themselves. Although they disagreed with three defensive penalties on the Bengals' game-winning drive, the Ravens blamed themselves - not the officials - for losing their grip on first place in the AFC North. The final, painful blow came when the Ravens let Cincinnati wide receiver Andre Caldwell run wide open for a 20-yard touchdown catch with 22 seconds left, capping one of the most excruciating defensive series in team history.

The good news is that right now, the Ravens have about six candidates for the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year Award. The bad news is ... well, did you watch the game Saturday night? Or the one the week before? The games against, respectively, the St. Louis Rams and Minnesota Vikings showed how indispensable those Ravens defenders are: Kelly Gregg, Haloti Ngata and Terrell Suggs up front, and Chris McAlister, Samari Rolle and Ed Reed in the secondary. That defense is such a shadow of its usual self without those guys, getting Suggs and Rolle back Saturday against the Rams barely made a difference.

Ed Reed was beyond consolation. The Ravens' Pro Bowl safety was drifting between distress and agony when reporters approached his locker after Sunday's shocking 17-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. "Guys, I ain't talking," he said. "I don't have anything good to say." So there he stood, towel wrapped around his midsection, facing toward his locker, repeating a variation of that declaration over and over, like a tape recorder on automatic cycle. "I'm not doing interviews today. I'm sorry, I can't.

SAN DIEGO - - After the San Diego Chargers bent the Ravens' defense all game, it was Ray Lewis who broke them in the end. Shooting an inside gap on "fourth down-and-game," Lewis wrapped his arms around running back Darren Sproles in the backfield with 30 seconds left, securing a thrilling 31-26 victory over the Chargers on Sunday in front of 66,882 at Qualcomm Stadium. The tackle by Lewis at the Chargers' 20-yard line epitomized the strength of the Ravens' defense, which withstood Philip Rivers' 436 passing yards by holding San Diego without a touchdown in five red-zone trips.

There are two sides to cornerback Frank Walker, and that is reflected by the nickname given to him by Ravens defensive backs coach Mark Carrier. The bad "Tank" carries out his tasks ruthlessly, mindlessly and with little regard for how his performance can affect his teammates and the result. The good "Tank" is more tactical, playing within the schemes drawn up by the coaching staff and being mindful of the intended - or even unintended - consequences of his actions. Walker, his teammates and his coaches insist that the bad "Tank" is a figure getting smaller and smaller in the rearview mirror as Walker develops.

You posted six solo tackles, a forced fumble and two pass breakups in a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Was that your best performance of the season? I think it was OK. It could have been better. I didn't get an interception. I want an interception - bad. That's what we get paid to do - take the ball away. And I had chances. I probably had three or four. How does it feel to contribute to and solidify a secondary that was a question mark in the offseason? It feels great. [Secondary coach]
