Because Ravens outside linebacker Jarret Johnson plays on the same defense with Haloti Ngata, Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs, he often gets overlooked when you talk about the Ravens' front seven. But Jets coach Rex Ryan won't overlook the Ravens' ninth-year strongside outside linebacker. Johnson may not get a lot of tackles because he is usually wrestling some tight end, but he has been close to pulling off several sacks this season.  “I'll tell you a guy that's underrated is Jarret Johnson,” Ryan said.

When the Ravens employed outside linebacker Jarret Johnson, he built a reputation as one of the grittiest players in franchise history. Now with the San Diego Chargers, Johnson vouched for new Ravens defensive lineman Lawrence Guy. Guy was claimed off waivers by the Ravens this week. They're dealing with injuries at the position, with rookie Timmy Jernigan ruled out with a knee injury for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers and starting defensive end Chris Canty questionable with a knee injury.

Several Ravens players like quarterback Joe Flacco, right guard Marshal Yanda and strong safety Bernard Pollard spoke glowingly Wednesday of re-acquainting themselves with San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Jarret Johnson, who spent his first nine seasons in Baltimore before signing with San Diego on March 17 as a free agent. But no player arguably misses Johnson more than outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, who, like Johnson, was drafted by the Ravens in 2003. Suggs, the rambunctious pass rusher, and Johnson, the cerebral run stopper, made an odd couple, but they were the closest of friends in the locker room.

A collection of what other media outlets are saying as the Ravens hit the bye week. * USA Today's Jarrett Bell talks about the Ravens' issues heading into their break . This is a good time for a bye and the chance to self-evaluate and reassess. Last year the Ravens went into the bye with a stench, too, after getting blown out at home by the Houston Texans. It set the stage for the crucial team meeting when players vented concerns to Harbaugh, whose threats about job security should not be taken lightly.

There could be change for the Ravens this offseason, especially with former defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano becoming head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. With Pagano in Baltimore, there were only two other AFC head coaches who knew the Ravens system and the value of certain players. But both New York Jets coach Rex Ryan and Cincinnati's Marvin Lewis have been joined by Pagano.  There will be a bidding war, or at least threats, on several of the Ravens other unrestricted free agents.

At Monday's news conference at the Castle, outside linebacker Jarret Johnson was asked about the trash-talking that will invariably take place -- think Terrell Suggs and Tom Brady yapping at each other again -- when the Ravens and New England Patriots meet for the AFC championship Sunday in Foxborough. This always cracks me up. Asking Jarret Johnson about trash-talking is like asking Ray Lewis about French modernist painters. Or asking Joe Flacco about the fuel rods in a nuclear submarine.

In 2005, Ravens defensive end Jarret Johnson played in all 16 regular-season games, starting 12, and recorded a career-high 61 tackles. The Homestead, Fla., native is entering his fourth NFL season since being drafted in the fourth round in 2003 from Alabama. What's the strangest thing you've ever been asked to sign? Probably body parts. Arms, foreheads, things like that. What do you like to do when you're not on the football field? I'm an outdoorsy guy. I have a chocolate lab and I like to play with him. He does retrieving, if you've ever seen retrieving contests on ESPN, my dog does that stuff.

The Ravens got some good news on the injury front. Starting outside linebacker Jarret Johnson and rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith participated fully in Friday's practice. Johnson had sat out Thursday's session with a lingering back ailment, but he has played in 118 consecutive games, which ranks as the longest streak in Ravens history and the fourth-longest active streak in the NFL. Smith, who hasn't played since suffering a high left ankle sprain in the season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept.

After nine productive seasons with the Ravens, linebacker Jarret Johnson faces an uncertain future with the franchise. He is an unrestricted free agent and he knows that the Ravens are trying to get faster and younger on defense. However, there he was Friday, seated front and center in the auditorium at the team's complex as Dean Pees was introduced as the team's new defensive coordinator. Johnson was the lone player in attendance. “I'm not here about my future,” said Johnson, the 30-year-old who had 56 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks during the regular season.

The Ravens are at least a touchdown - or more, according to some oddsmakers - underdog to the New England Patriots in Sunday's AFC championship game. The fact that the contest will be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., and the Ravens are just 4-4 this season on the road is probably a factor. Also, the Ravens are just 1-6 all time against the Patriots. All of that is just fine with outside linebacker Jarret Johnson. “We like being the underdog,” he said.

The stories started circulating long before John Simon first set foot on Ohio State's campus and became such a program favorite that his head coach talked about naming his next child after him. By the time he got to elementary school, Simon was already performing a daily regimen of pull-ups and sit-ups. He lifted 225 pounds 31 times as a 16-year-old. Before he graduated from high school, he had benched 450 pounds and squatted 700. "People really didn't believe us," said P.J. Fecko, the head football coach at Cardinal Mooney in Youngstown, Ohio.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. The Ravens left for the West Coast on Friday and play the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, so I reached out to Michael Gehlken, the Chargers beat writer for the San Diego Union-Tribune, to chat about Sunday's game. MV: What is going on with Philip Rivers? Many chalked up his struggles a year ago to it just being a rough season for him, but the same issues remain and he doesn't look like the same quarterback.

At first, Terrell Suggs referred to former Raven and current San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Jarret Johnson as "my brother. " Then Suggs tried to sound indifferent about seeing his former teammate on an opposing sideline. "I might not say anything to him," said Suggs, who was drafted the same year as Johnson. "I might take a cheap shot. " But it only took Suggs' next breath for his true feelings to surface. "I'm definitely going to give him a hug," Suggs said. "Me and Jarret, we came in the same class together [2003]

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees is making a smart move by calling his defenses from the press box instead of being on the field. I can understand each method -- staying on the field or up in the press box -- but the Ravens have a lot of young players on the field, with the exception of safety Ed Reed and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs. I'm not sure the communication with Pees was as good as it should have been, especially when you lose players like Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb to injuries, or veterans like Jarret Johnson or Cory Redding to free agency.

It is a campaign season, but Dean Pees wasn't in the mood for ducking any questions about his defense, one of the worst in the NFL. He didn't mince words. "It makes me sick," said Pees, the first-year Ravens defensive coordinator, whose group is ranked 26th in the league. "It makes me sick is the best way I can put it. It really does. It's up to me and it's up to our staff to get this thing corrected. " He is right. The Ravens stink. They are allowing 396.7 yards and 19.7 points a game.

However, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said keeping Rice, a two-time Pro Bowl player, is a “no-brainer.” “We're really good about that, guys who are truly Ravens, keeping them Ravens,” Suggs said. “There's no one better in the game to do it than [Ravens general manager]

Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston answers a selection of reader questions after the Ravens' 31-29 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Dan in Clearwater, Fla.: Mike, on the horrible defense -- personnel or scheme? Mike Preston: Dan, we can't talk about the scheme right now because the personnel is poor. The Ravens are playing with a lot of new faces in the front seven, but they haven't shown much improvement since training camp and the start of the season. Except for Haloti Ngata, there hasn't been one player that sticks out from that front group.

After surrendering more than 200 rushing yards in back-to-back contests for the first time in team history, the Ravens said they wouldn't be surprised if the Houston Texans and the remaining teams on the 2012 schedule tried to attack the defense via the ground game. In fact, the Ravens said they expect it. “Definitely. Right now, of course you can,” defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said. “We're not doing anything to stop it. So that's why I'm a little frustrated that teams are being able to run on us. Hopefully, we can fix those things.” A proud unit that has finished in the top five against the run in six consecutive seasons - the NFL's longest active streak - allowed a franchise-worst 227 rushing yards to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday after giving up 214 yards to the Kansas City Chiefs the week before.
