At this point, patience is needed. The Ravens are interested in a number of veteran quarterbacks, but it would be foolish to reveal their hand so early into the offseason. It's the game outside the game. Will they sign a potential unrestricted free agent such as Drew Brees, Charlie Batch, Jon Kitna, Josh McCown, Kurt Warner or Jeff Garcia? Or will they sign a possible salary cap casualty like Steve McNair, Kerry Collins, Aaron Brooks or Daunte Culpepper? A lot of things can and will change in the coming months, but early indications point to Collins being the perfect fit to become the Ravens' starting quarterback in 2006.

A key figure in Ravens history retired from the NFL on Thursday: Titans quarterback Kerry Collins, whom the Ravens intercepted four times in their 34-7 victory over the Giants in Super Bowl XXXV. After Collins completed just 15 of his 39 attempts for 112 yards -- for a passer rating of 7.1 -- on the sweetest Sunday in Ravens history, the strong-armed quarterback was asked by The Baltimore Sun whether he had ever seen a better defense. "No, probably not," Collins said as the Ravens showered in champagne in the other locker room.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - There was little reason to believe Kerry Collins wasn't going to be successful in the NFL. He had the pedigree, having led Penn State to a perfect record as a senior. He had the size and skills to be the first pick of the expansion Carolina Panthers in 1995. There was little reason to believe his performance over the first two seasons in Charlotte wasn't foretelling the future. He was the first rookie to have a winning record as a starter since Dan Marino. He brought the Panthers to the brink of the Super Bowl in 1996, and played in the Pro Bowl.

Kyle Boller understands that the landscape at quarterback with the Ravens soon could transform from an unsettled situation to a heated one. The Ravens might have a chance at signing Steve McNair. Or they might get extremely lucky and have a shot at drafting Vince Young. Or they might end up doing what many had predicted for months and finally bring in Kerry Collins. More Ravens Team covets Texas quarterback Vince Young, but trading up in first round to get him is unlikely. PG 14D

The second quarter was a near repeat of the first. The Ravens relied heavily on their defense to keep the New York Giants off the scoreboard and used another big pass play to set up another scoring drive. The quarter started off with Ravens linebacker Jamie Sharper slamming Giants receiver Ike Hilliard into the ground on an incompletion as the game got increasingly more physical. But the Ravens had to avoid their biggest scare of the first half just five minutes into the quarter. Trying to escape a sack, Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer hastily threw the ball into the left flat, where linebacker Jessie Armstead picked it off and returned it 43 yards for a touchdown.

OAKLAND, Calif. - In a year when defense dominated the postseason, it's only fitting that two of the NFL's best defensive teams advance to Super Bowl XXXV. The Ravens and New York Giants are similar on offense, too. They've both got recycled quarterbacks (Trent Dilfer and Kerry Collins) and a predilection for the ball-control running game. But it's defense that sets these two teams apart from the pack. The Ravens ran first in rush defense, the Giants second. The Ravens were second in total defense, the Giants fifth.

The Tennessee Titans are not only determined to sign quarterback Kerry Collins (right) to a new contract that brings him back in 2009, but they also will make a significant effort to sign Chris Simms, who, like Collins, is scheduled to be a free agent after this season, team sources told ESPN. If Collins leads the Titans to the playoffs, the team will offer him a contract that conditionally pays him as a starter. The team has no plans to abandon former top draft choice Vince Young, but his status as a starter depends on Collins' performance the rest of the season, the sources told ESPN.

The most surprising team in the AFC is not the Tennessee Titans. It is not the Ravens, either, no matter how heartwarming this three-game turnaround has been with their rookie head coach, a rookie quarterback and a back-to-the-future defense. All of you out there can raise your hands if you thought the Buffalo Bills would be where they are today. How about one hand? Like the Titans, the Bills are 4-0. Like the Ravens, the Bills have done it with a young quarterback, Trent Edwards. But here's the difference: After finishing 7-9 a year ago and losing their last three games, the Bills have already won three times coming from behind in the fourth quarter, twice on the road, including at Jacksonville two weeks ago. And here's another difference: Edwards, in his second year, has played as if he were the second coming of another former Stanford quarterback, a fellow named John Elway, not a late third-round pick whom the Bills drafted after dumping Willis McGahee.

Ravens fans heaped praise and adoration on Ray Lewis, Brian Billick and Art Modell for bringing the Vince Lombardi Trophy to Baltimore to cap a successful 2000 season. The next person on that list might have been Kerry Collins. It was Collins, as the quarterback for the New York Giants, who contributed to the Ravens' 34-7 win in the January 2001 Super Bowl by throwing four interceptions and getting pulverized by the Lewis-led defense. "I still obviously have vivid memories of the game - most of which were not so good," Collins said yesterday during a conference call with the Baltimore media.

No guarantees When will players realize that guaranteeing a victory is a foolhardy venture at best? Detroit receiver Roy Williams made one of those silly guarantees last week and then the Lions were flogged by the Bears, 34-7. Think anyone wants to hear more predictions from Williams? Vick runs free The Falcons appear content to let quarterback Michael Vick (above) do his thing. Vick passed only sporadically yesterday (15 times for 92 yards), but rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown, beating the Buccaneers to the corner nearly every time.

The team with the fewest turnovers probably will win this game. That comes down to the quarterbacks -- Kerry Collins of the Giants and Trent Dilfer of the Ravens -- throwing against two pressure defenses. Give the Ravens 10 points off those turnovers and call it a 16-6 Baltimore victory. The Ravens have only one touchdown drive of more than four plays in the postseason, and only one scoring possession of more than five minutes. The Ravens have allowed just one rushing touchdown in the past 27 quarters.

A couple of days before Easter and a couple of weeks before the NFL draft, the Ravens already find themselves with all their eggs in one basket. The Ravens' future is being dictated 700 miles away in the offices of the Tennessee Titans. It's there that Titans officials are deciding the fate of quarterback Steve McNair and indirectly, mapping the course for the Ravens. Ravens officials watched the offseason quarterback shuffle from afar. In need of a new quarterback for next season, the Ravens barely raised an eyebrow for Drew Brees and Daunte Culpepper.
