CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The voice in Julius Peppers' head has been saying it for a long time. He just never let the world in on the inner workings of his mind. Not that the voice's message would come as a surprise to anyone now. The big secret? No one can block him. "I've been saying it to myself for a long time, like three years now," said North Carolina's All-America defensive end. "I can say it out in the open; I can let other teams hear it now because it's the truth." But the junior doesn't consider himself the best defensive player in the nation.

On Sunday, nearly 71,000 watched Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs dance after he sacked Cleveland Browns quarterback Derek Anderson. Was this jubilation over one play or the beginning of Suggs' coming-out party? After last season, doubts hung over Suggs. As the team fell way below expectations with a 5-11 record, Suggs' sack total dipped from 9 1/2 in 2006 to five. One of the most feared pass rushers in the NFL was no longer feared, at least until Sunday. "I did all right. It was a good way to get the year started," Suggs said.

One Ten Pro Bowl-related notes: Frank Gore -- The 49ers running back has an NFC-best 1,491 rushing yards, and the Arizona Cardinals' Edgerrin James said Gore should eventually be among the top-paid backs in the league. "[The 49ers] need to take super good care of him because he's their offense," James said. Two University of Miami -- Six former Hurricanes - Gore, Ravens safety Ed Reed, Colts receiver Reggie Wayne, Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey, Bears kick returner Devin Hester and Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson - were selected, more than from any other school.

If a team fails to shoot well or play solid defense in this season's much-improved Atlantic Coast Conference, that team is most likely in trouble. Say hello to the Maryland Terrapins, who are, considering their much-publicized talent, the most troubled team in the league. Defense, or lack thereof, is weighing most heavily on 13th-ranked Maryland's minds, and Saturday's 96-82 loss at top-ranked North Carolina underscored the problem. The Tar Heels absorbed an inspired first half by Maryland, which outworked Carolina on the boards and surprised the Tar Heels for a while with some well-designed traps that created a spurt of turnovers and easy baskets.

Cowboys (12-2) @ Panthers (6-8) Time, TV -- 8:15, NFL Network Fantasy factor -- Cowboys RB Marion Barber, who rushed for two TDs in the teams' last meeting, is av eraging 4.9 yards per carry and might have to carry the load. Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams ran for a 35-yard touchdown in an upset of the Sea hawks last week. The buzz -- QB Tony Romo's thumb injury might limit the Cow boys' offense, but the Panthers are going with undrafted rookie Matt Moore at QB. Dallas needs to at least stay even with the Packers to get home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

Not on the ball The 49ers are starting to have weekly fiascos. In Monday night's loss at Arizona, offensive coordinator Mike Martz thought the ball was spotted closer to the goal line than it really was for the game-deciding play. Not surprisingly, Martz made a poor call. Why is he always involved in these intrigues? Colt worth keeping? Questions are swirling around Colts WR Marvin Harrison. Peyton Manning was quick to defend him after Harrison dropped two catchable balls last week. But some critics are even questioning Harrison's effort.
