If Jason Garrett becomes the Ravens' head coach, let's hope he won't show as much inexperience during the season as he showed yesterday. Garrett spent most of the day interviewing with top Ravens officials about their vacant head coaching position and walked away from their offer, one of the most coveted jobs in professional sports. The Ravens and Garrett are still negotiating, and Garrett said all the right things as he met briefly with the media. But he didn't answer a lot of questions.

Jason Garrett was the hot coaching candidate who had everything the Ravens were seeking. He was a former NFL quarterback, Ivy League-educated and groomed in a football family. He was young and bright, and in just a couple of seasons as an NFL assistant, he had carved out a reputation as one of the freshest offensive minds in football. The Ravens had some recent success, a roster with defensive stars and a front office that was one of the envies of the league. It appeared to be the perfect fit, only Garrett didn't see it that way. After two visits to Baltimore and an offer to succeed Brian Billick as the coach of the Ravens following the 2007 season, Garrett opted to stay in Dallas where he was the offensive coordinator and become the assistant head coach and heir apparent to Wade Phillips.

New voice helps a lot Ken Murray Baltimore Sun There is very little in the NFL that is happenstance, but to suggest that Jason Garrett transformed the Cowboys overnight by putting pads on for practice, or drawing up a dynamic game plan, is missing the boat. All Garrett did was give them a new voice — the voice of authority. Wade Phillips was a lame duck, the easy fall guy for a horrendous start. His voice no longer resonated with the team. Garrett may carry the title of interim coach, but for all the players know, he may be the coach next year.

After the Dallas Cowboys waived him on Sept. 20, Bryan McCann said he got a few feelers from other NFL employers. But the team that interested him the most - and showed him the most interest - was the Ravens. “I was definitely excited,” said McCann, who signed a two-year deal last Tuesday. “The Ravens are a team that's known for their defense, throughout the whole franchise's history. So to be able to come out and for them to want me to be a part of that defense is definitely an honor.” A cornerback and return specialist, McCann might solidify both areas.

Jason Garrett has narrowed his job choices to taking the Ravens' head coaching post or staying with the Dallas Cowboys and could decide today, an NFL source said last night. Garrett, the Cowboys' offensive coordinator, also has been courted by the Atlanta Falcons for their head coaching vacancy. After interviewing with the Ravens and the Falcons the past two days, Garrett flew back to Dallas last night to contemplate his future. If Garrett turns down the Ravens, they will turn their attention to Philadelphia Eagles secondary coach John Harbaugh, the source said.

Rex Ryan left Ravens headquarters yesterday before the team introduced John Harbaugh as head coach. But the Ravens made it known that they want their defensive coordinator back. "I think very highly of Rex," owner Steve Bisciotti said. "I talked to [Atlanta Falcons owner] Art Blank about Rex a half-hour ago. If Rex doesn't get the Atlanta job -- and I hope he does -- then I hope he stays here." A team official explained that the Ravens' coaching staff was "released" but not fired. That means the coaches could look for other jobs, but they could remain with the team if the new coach wants them.

Whenever there are NFL coaching openings, the hot candidates are assistants from winning teams. And if it's offense you want, you go looking for offensive assistants. That's why guys such as Josh McDaniels (Patriots), Jason Garrett (Cowboys) and Jim Caldwell (Colts) are being linked to the Ravens' coaching search. You could toss in Dallas' Tony Sparano, but if there's a favorite for the coaching job in Miami, where Bill Parcells is in charge now, I'm inclined to think that Sparano is Parcells' guy. McDaniels is the most intriguing candidate because of his age, just 31, and the fact that he has been handed the keys to the sports car known as the New England offense by a guy who's not easy to win over, Bill Belichick.

News item: The Orioles finalized free-agent contracts with veteran first baseman Derrek Lee and closer Kevin Gregg, all but completing an offseason roster overhaul that replaced three-fourths of the starting infield and injected some much-needed power into the batting order. My take: Clearly the O's are a better team than the one that won 66 games last year, but are they better than any of the other teams in the American League East? When you finished 19 games out of fourth place, I think that's still a fair question.

If he can manage pain Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune If Tony Romo can do no further damage by playing, and if he can handle excruciating pain without allowing it to affect his performance, he should and will suit up for the Cowboys on Monday when they play host to the Redskins. Based on what the Cowboys are saying, it appears likely he will receive medical clearance. Now it becomes a matter of pain management. Romo did fine with that Sunday, when he threw for many of his 345 yards after the injury.

Of the three NFL head coaching jobs available, it's not difficult to identify which one is the most attractive: the Ravens'. The facts speak for themselves. The Ravens have great facilities and rabid fans. They have a wealthy owner in Steve Bisciotti who is hungry to win, but one who doesn't like to meddle and prefers to stay out of the spotlight. The general manager has a history of drafting well (though admittedly less so on offense), and a high draft pick to use in April. The team has a talented group of veterans and a track record of weathering rough waters in the interest of long-term stability.
