It took a few years for him to find himself, but former Ravens kicker Steven Hauschka, the young man who faced the daunting task of filling the cleats of Baltimore legend Matt Stover, is going to the Super Bowl. Hauschka, who was the leading scorer for the Seattle Seahawks during the regular season, kicked three field goals, including a key 47-yarder late in the fourth quarter, to help the Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers, 23-17, and advance to the Super Bowl, where they will play the Denver Broncos in two weeks.

Matt Stover has a marvelous past, two NFL kicking records and unerring accuracy from less than 40 yards. Steve Hauschka has a promising future, a powerful leg and the ability to combine two jobs into one. Those appear to be the Ravens' two kicking options as they fast approach coach John Harbaugh's second season, one filled with high expectations. Choosing Hauschka would be a break with the familiar, sentimental path that Baltimore fans have traveled the past 13 seasons. How many games have Stover and the Ravens' defense won together over those years?

Despite getting unceremoniously released midway through his first season by the Ravens as their primary kicker, Steve Hauschka said he doesn't harbor a grudge against the Ravens. “My job as an athlete is to focus on the things that I can control, and that's kicking the ball,” said Hauschka, who now kicks for the Seattle Seahawks - the Ravens' opponent this Sunday. “I don't think the team's decision is really going to affect it. When it really comes down to it, my job is to kick the ball.

The Ravens plan to keep Matt Stover and Steve Hauschka on the 45-man game-day roster for the remainder of the season. Coach John Harbaugh said retaining the reliable veteran in Stover and the strong-legged rookie in Hauschka gives the Ravens flexibility. "The flexibility that a guy like Hauschka gives you as a kicker is another weapon," Harbaugh said. "We have a guy that can obviously kick the longer field goal, which was an advantage for us in the game. ... We're going to try to have them both active if we can."

ATLANTA -- Ravens coach John Harbaugh wouldn't declare Steve Hauschka the winner of the kicking battle Thursday night, but the second-year player did his best to make the decision easier. Hauschka converted both of his field goals in the Ravens' preseason finale, including an impressive 46-yarder late in the fourth quarter. "I knew my job was probably riding on it," Hauschka said of the 46-yard field goal. "So I felt some pressure on that one." After coming under scrutiny for missing a 27-yard field goal Saturday, Hauschka bounced back to finish six of seven on field goals for the preseason (85.7 percent)

All Steve Hauschka wanted from his athletic career was a spot on the varsity soccer team at Division III Middlebury College. But he wasn't fast enough. That would have been it for most kids with dreams of a medical career. But Hauschka had loved swinging his leg violently into balls since he was a little boy. Though he had never even kicked a football in high school, he decided to give it a whirl. Five years later, he's in the NFL as the Ravens' kickoff and long-field-goal specialist. The thing is, Hauschka's strange route to the NFL wasn't much stranger than those of many of his peers.

Judging by looks alone, the Ravens' kicking competition might have been decided in the second quarter of Monday's 24-23 preseason victory over the New York Jets. That's when Graham Gano's 46-yard field-goal attempt sliced wide right, leading coach John Harbaugh to glare in disgust at the field while shaking his head. Halfway through the preseason, there are indications Steve Hauschka is close to winning the job over Gano. Hauschka has outplayed Gano, making all three of his field-goal tries.

As Steve Hauschka's potential game-winning kick sailed wide left, nearly all the Ravens on the sideline dropped their heads in unison, feeling another last-minute punch in the gut in a season that continues to veer off course. The Ravens' frenetic 33-31 loss to the undefeated Minnesota Vikings marked their third straight defeat - and their third straight decided in the final 30 seconds of a game.Their offense failed on the last drive in New England. Their defense fell apart in its last series against the Cincinnati Bengals.

It's apparent that Ravens coach John Harbaugh wants second-year player Steve Hauschka to win the place-kicking duties, which is why he has given Hauschka until Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons to nail down the job. I suspect that if Hauschka fails, Harbaugh believes veteran Matt Stover has stayed in shape and is good enough to prepare for the regular-season opener in a short amount of practice time. Hauschka apparently had taken the lead over rookie Graham Gano, but he couldn't take control of the job against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday night.

Five days before Matt Stover returns to M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens acknowledged Tuesday they failed in their first attempt to replace him, cutting struggling kicker Steve Hauschka. Hauschka said he was "a little surprised" by his release, which came less than 24 hours after he missed a 36-yard field goal and had an extra point blocked in a 16-0 win at Cleveland. Team officials said the team will sign a new kicker - likely Mike Nugent or Billy Cundiff - by today's practice.

Steve Hauschka's claim on the kicking job with the Ravens became more tenuous Monday night when he not only was wide left on a 36-yard field goal attempt, but also had an extra point blocked. The second-year player from North Carolina State came into the game on thin ice after missing critical field goals in Minnesota and Cincinnati, both times hooking the ball to the left. Last week, the Ravens brought in free-agent kickers Mike Nugent and Billy Cundiff for tryouts, but coach John Harbaugh said Hauschka would remain the team's kicker against the Cleveland Browns.

Ravens kicker Steve Hauschka knows his NFL job is hanging by a thread after he missed two crucial kicks during the past three weeks, including a potential game-winner Oct. 18 against the Minnesota Vikings. Fans are clamoring for his head, especially after the veteran he replaced, Matt Stover, has been perfect for the Indianapolis Colts since signing with them Oct. 14. And Ravens coaches tried out two kickers this week but so far have not signed one. As of now, Hauschka says the job is still his to lose.

1 Injuries hit wide receivers. Derrick Mason and Mark Clayton have been durable throughout their careers, but both have dealt with significant injuries in the past year. This already criticized group doesn't have the depth to deal with any losses. 2 Steve Hauschka struggles in his first year as kicker. No one is under the fans' microscope more than Hauschka, who has the unenviable task of replacing Matt Stover. But the real pressure will come when he attempts his first potentially game-winning kick in the fourth quarter.

Provide your name, the city you live in and phone number so we can verify the e-mail. HEY, JAMISON: : Do you know why the Ravens stopped wearing their purple jerseys at home? I'm not a big fan of the away jerseys. Shawn J. Walker AnnapolisHEY, SHAWN: : Don't worry about seeing the white jerseys at home again this year. The Ravens wore them for the season opener only because white doesn't absorb as much heat, which is supposed to give them an advantage.
