At the end of Ravens practice yesterday, rookie free agent Alex Bernstein sauntered toward a goal post, Gatorade in hand. He passed a few autograph seekers, ran a hand through his carrot-colored hair and recalled a conversation he and his best friend had four years ago."We were sitting down real late at night, just having a heart-to-heart, and I told him I was going to be the first player in JTC years to come out of the NESCAC [New England Small College Athletic Conference] to play in the NFL," Bernstein said.

One day after the Ravens' 16-14 loss to the Tennessee Oilers, the team began a healing process on the offensive line.In one of the strangest occurrences of the season, four of the Ravens' offensive linemen were hurt in one game. The team looked as if it were having a hot tub party yesterday.Coach Ted Marchibroda listed both offensive tackles, Orlando Brown and Jonathan Ogden, as questionable for Sunday's home game against the Minnesota Vikings because of ankle sprains, as well as right guard Jeff Blackshear, who has an abdominal strain.

It seems like Spencer Folau plays a new position almost every day. One day he is at left offensive tackle, the next day right guard. Then it's over to left guard and then to right tackle.Thank goodness the Ravens already have a water boy."As of this point, he has received more work than we anticipated, which is good for him," said coach Ted Marchibroda.Folau, the Ravens' second-year tackle from the University of Idaho, has become a prized commodity for the team in the last two weeks. With season-ending knee injuries to guard Sale Isaia and center Jeff Mitchell, the 6-foot-5, 300-pound Folau has become the Ravens' top reserve and another project the team hopes will follow in the footsteps of starters Orlando Brown, an offensive tackle, and center Wally Williams.

One day after Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda shuffled his running backs, with veteran Errict Rhett replacing second-year player Jay Graham, the offensive line was trying to regain the concentration that was not evident in the past two preseason games.The offensive line had not produced, and Graham was basically the fall guy."We know what we can do. Now we've got to go do it," right offensive tackle Orlando Brown said. "We've got to get focused again. We've studied our opponent. Now it's time to get going.

Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz was watching UCLA's offense when he put the video on rewind to watch Jonathan Ogden again. "There was one play where he was about 15 yards downfield and then he starts driving the free safety further down the field," said Ferentz. "He does it so easily that it never occurs to you that he is 6-8 and weighs 318 pounds. He's so fluid and good at what he does that he lulls you to sleep. " Ogden's athleticism is why the club made him the No. 1 pick in Ravens history Saturday, and why it believes he will have an easy transition to playing left guard.

Ravens owner Art Modell said yesterday that he plans to keep backup quarterback Eric Zeier, let reserve center Quentin Neujahr move on and possibly restructure the contracts of some of the team's younger stars, such as linebacker Ray Lewis and wide receiver Jermaine Lewis, before the end of the 1998 season.During a one-hour interview yesterday at the team's downtown headquarters, Modell was feisty, defensive and extremely confident about the Ravens' chances in the 1998 season.He touched on a number of subjects, such as the recent addition of cornerback Rod Woodson, exploring last-minute deals in the NFL draft next month and defending the team's decision to sign fullback Roosevelt Potts.

Jonathan Ogden was overly shy as a kid -- he once won a spelling bee while keeping his back to the audience -- and sometimes sensed others were gawking at his large physique. He has come a long way, although he still has trouble speaking in front of large groups. On the football field, though, Ogden talks a little trash in the trenches, where he has done things that have left opponents demoralized and have rendered NFL scouts speechless. "You have to turn yourself into a different person out there," said the normally mild-mannered Ogden . "You have to want to abuse the person you're playing against.

One of the most important matchups in the Ravens' game with the Pittsburgh Steelers tomorrow will be center Quentin Neujahr against Steelers nose guard Joel Steed.Neujahr will be making only the fifth start of his career. Steed has been in the league since 1992 and is regarded as one of the NFL's best at his position; he has the explosiveness and speed to disrupt an entire rushing attack.Last year, Steed finished with 46 tackles and was named an alternate to the Pro Bowl.Neujahr, in his third season, was expected to be the Ravens' No. 2 center this season, but starter Wally Williams was sidelined with a ruptured Achilles' tendon in late April.
