Jimmy Smith was standing less than 10 yards away and listening to his head coach field questions from reporters. So when John Harbaugh was asked about the Ravens' second-year cornerback, he flashed a quick smile toward Smith and then answered in a manner one might expect given his audience. "I expect greatness from Jimmy Smith but he expects that from himself," Harbaugh said. "Jimmy has worked really, really hard, and again, it's another guy that it's showing in the way he's playing.

TAMPA, FLA. - Inside the locker room late Sunday afternoon, Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee had a blunt take on the defense's rough treatment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. “He's going to be pretty sore,” McPhee said while smiling at his handiwork, which included one sack. During the Ravens' 48-17 win at Raymond James Stadium, the defense sacked Glennon a season-high five times and hit him 15 times. The amount of sacks equaled their previous season total entering Sunday's game.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith spent last Thursday night trailing a few steps behind Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, enduring a rough outing where he was unable to prevent him from reaching the end zone. The Pro Bowl wide receiver caught three passes for 55 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown pass during the Ravens' 27-23 win, as Smith was primarily responsible for guarding him. Smith was accountable about what happened, but emphasized that specific knowledge of coverage schemes and assignments is generally only known by players and coaches.

Breaking down each aspect of the Ravens' Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. PASSING GAME RAVENS: In three starts at home, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has completed 63.9 percent of his pass attempts and thrown six touchdown passes and one interception. In two starts on the road, he's completed 59.4 of his passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. The Ravens' quest to become a better road team starts with Flacco getting off to quicker starts and the offensive line doing a better job of protecting him. The Ravens are optimistic that today could be the day for wide receiver Torrey Smith's breakout.

It didn't take long during Saturday's introductory news conference to see that the Ravens' top two draft picks in 2011 share more of a connection than both having the birth name James Smith. After Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith answered two questions about character issues, Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith stepped in unprompted to defend the Ravens' first-round pick. "I've had the opportunity to get know Jimmy myself over the process," said Torrey, a second-round pick who shares the same agent [Drew Rosenhaus]

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith did not finish practice Thursday at the team's training facility in Owings Mills. During a full-team exercise, quarterback Joe Flacco threw a pass to rookie wide receiver Deonte Thompson, who ran an in route from the right side of the field. After the play was whistled dead, Smith was on the turf inside the Ravens' indoor field on all fours. After a few minutes, he walked off slowly under the watchful eyes of two trainers and did not return. It's unclear what happened on the play, but after practice, defensive coordinator Dean Pees said Smith - who sat out almost all of the first five games after suffering a high left ankle sprain last season - may have hurt his back.

I struggle with the Home Run Derby, despite being a huge fan of three-hour batting practice sessions involving Cuban sluggers. There's a very small percentage of baseball fans who feel like I do. If this, and the All-Star Game, are really for the kids, why have them at eight? It makes no sense. So all that happened, and all the rest of this stuff, as you'll read in the Coffee Companion. - Mike Preston believes Jimmy Smith's arrest is attributable to his immaturity . League precedent says he likely won't be disciplined for his arrest last weekend in Towson - Jeff Zrebiec broke down the Ravens' running back depth as part of his positional previews ahead of training camp.

Cornerback Jimmy Smith appeared to injure his leg during Saturday's practice and did not participate in the remainder of the session. Smith battled leg cramps Friday, but the injury is not expected to be serious. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees said he wasn't sure of the severity of the injury, adding, "I think it was something in special teams. I don't know exactly what it was, but it was in the special teams practice that he did something. I really don't know exactly what it was. " Cornerback Lardarius Webb, who was excused from Friday's practice to attend to a personal matter, returned and participated in Saturday's session.

The Ravens see that Jimmy Smith can be a quality starting cornerback. They say he flashes that kind of ability every game. But they also see the moments when he gets caught out of place and gets stuck on somebody else's highlight reel. That inconsistency might drive you crazy, but the Ravens feel Smith is on the right track. Smith is in his third NFL season, and the cornerback position can sometimes have a steep learning curve. But expectations are elevated for cornerbacks who are selected in the first round of the draft.

The Ravens could ill afford another injury at cornerback, but that's exactly what they got barely three minutes into their game tonight against the Dallas Cowboys . Jimmy Smith , their top healthy cornerback, came down hard on his back defending a long sideline incompletion to Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant . Smith got up after the play and slapped himself on the helmet but then he went immediately down to his knees. Flanked by the team's medical staff, he ultimately walked gingerly back to the sideline, where he was spitting out blood before he was ultimately taken to the locker room.

Welcome to the Ravens Ten-Pack, where I'll go medium depth on 10 Ravens topics that came from the previous week's game. This was initially a Tuesday thing, but now it's a Monday thing, so read ahead for notes on Jimmy Smith, C.J. Mosley, the Ravens' offensive gameplan, and their inability to deal with pressure. 1. The early-game decision-making by both John Harbaugh and Colts coach Chuck Pagano was telling Sunday. The Colts went for it on fourth down on the opening drive, and the Ravens opted against a field goal on fourth down in the second quarter - which resulted in a silly play-action sack for quarterback Joe Flacco.

INDIANAPOLIS - The mistakes came early and late. Steve Smith fumbled the first pass Joe Flacco threw. Torrey Smith dropped the last one, a sideline opportunity that would have kept the Ravens' comeback hopes alive, if only for a little longer. In between, the Ravens defense accomplished much of what they wanted against the NFL's highest-scoring team, only to watch their own offense falter repeatedly. A 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts before an announced crowd of 65,258 at Lucas Oil Stadium was a definite missed opportunity for the Ravens, who did all the things that they avoided doing during their three-game winning streak.

Sure, Monday is the main analysis day, but if I can get an extra day to make this marginally better than it would be a day earlier, why not?

For the fourth straight game, the Ravens defense allowed a sustained drive to open the other team's offensive account.

It probably wouldn't have made a difference even if Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had not delivered a strike to the left corner of the end zone. No one from the Ravens' secondary was in position to challenge the pass Sunday as Newton hit rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for a 28-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Free safety Darian Stewart reacted far too late after cornerback Jimmy Smith had the initial coverage on Benjamin and released him to Stewart. For the second consecutive game, the Ravens had a botched coverage because of a mix-up in coverage responsibilities.

Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: Was there any doubt that Steve Smith was going to have a huge game playing against his former team? The second Smith ran under Joe Flacco's deflected pass and took it 61 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter, you knew it was going to be a long day for the Panthers. Flacco played another strong game and the offensive line continues to impress.

In one corner is a soft-spoken 27-year-old who was the biggest surprise of last year's training camp. Cary Williams, who went undrafted out of Division II Washburn and was later plucked from the Tennessee Titans' practice squad, started every game for the Ravens in 2011. In the other corner is a confident 2011 first-round pick whom some assumed would be handed Williams' job this summer. Jimmy Smith carried himself like a playful young man fresh out of college during his rookie season, but teammates say the 24-year-old has grown up a lot in the past year.

Jimmy Smith has prototypical size for the cornerback position. He has the speed to bump receivers, then trail them down the sideline. He has confidence to burn, too, which is always a good thing to have at that position. In his first two seasons with the Ravens, Smith showed occasional flashes, but he couldn't stay on the field long enough to live up to the lofty expectations that came with him being a first-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft. But as Smith enters his third season in the league, the expectations he soon will face might be even greater.

Creating pathways for Taliaferro and Justin Forsett, fullback Kyle Juszczyk had his best game in three NFL starts with hard-nosed lead blocking.

Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson looks back at the Ravens' game each week and looks ahead to their next opponent. GAME PLAN: Instead of airing it out and employing a no-huddle offense the way they did frequently in ineffective fashion during a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens scrapped the hurry-up approach and adopted a balanced, gritty approach. There were just a dozen shotgun snaps out of 65 offensive plays, zero no-huddle plays. They ran the football downhill, gaining 157 rushing yards on 36 runs to wear out a visibly tired Pittsburgh Steelers defense.
