THE RAVENS ARE offensive nomads. They have an idea of what they want to be, but not the resolve to complete it. It's an identity crisis. Coming into the season, head coach Brian Billick said that despite the additions of receivers Derrick Mason and Mark Clayton, the Ravens would have a run-oriented offense. Then in the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday, the Ravens became pass happy. Billick points out that the Ravens had to throw the ball because they fell behind 17-0, but the Ravens came out throwing to open the second half despite only trailing 3-0. Of the first 13 plays in the third quarter, running back Jamal Lewis touched the ball only once against an undersized Indianapolis team that stayed in a four-man front.

Avoid turnovers: The Ravens' new starting quarterback, Trent Dilfer, threw an interception in the loss to Tennessee last week and had two fumbles, although neither was lost. He'll have to protect the ball better. Contain Kordell: Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart's improvisational abilities can break down any defense, even this one. Lose the frustration: Somehow, the Ravens have to break through their mental block on the goal line. Four games without a touchdown is long enough.

The Ravens are expected to re-sign Kordell Stewart as early as today, multiple team sources said. Stewart will give the Ravens a veteran quarterback to back up Anthony Wright for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. Stewart spent all of last season, his 10th, with the Ravens but did not take any snaps from center. His biggest contribution came as a substitute punter for Dave Zastudil against the New York Jets when he placed two kicks inside the 10-yard line. The Ravens drafted Derek Anderson in the sixth round and made no attempt to bring back Stewart, but starter Kyle Boller injured his toe in the regular-season opener against the Indianapolis Colts and will miss at least one game.

Terrell Davis ran for 139 yards; Jerome Bettis had limited success.3. Facing third-and-six at his 15 with 2 minutes left and up three points, Elway found Shannon Sharpe for a first down, allowing Denver to run out the clock.Pub Date: 1/12/98

1 Stop running back Jerome Bettis. If the Ravens stop him and force Kordell Stewart to pass, their chances for victory improve dramatically.2 Contain Stewart. His passing likely won't beat the Ravens, but his scrambling ability might.3 Use play-action passes. Teams are starting to bring up safeties to shut down the run, which leaves the middle open.Pub Date: 11/09/97

Best re-run: The Ravens' Tony Banks hitting Qadry Ismail for a 53-yard touch-down pass in the first quarter one play after overthrowing him in the end zone Worst call: Inserting Kordell Stewart at quarterback at the goal line in the fourth quarter was like putting a match to gasoline. With Stewart, the Steelers didn't gain an inch, and he was booed off the field. Best impersonation of Jerome Bettis: That would be the Ravens' Priest Holmes, who rushed for 119 yards, while the real Bus had 8 yards on 9 carries.

1 The Ravens have to do a better job of protecting the quarterback. St. Louis got a lot of pressure up the middle to disrupt Scott Mitchell's three-step drop last week, and the Steelers will try the same tactic.2 Stop Jerome Bettis. The Ravens have shut him down in the last couple of meetings. The key: Don't allow him to straighten up his shoulder pads at the line of scrimmage, thus stopping him from running north and south.3 The Ravens must put pressure on quarterback Kordell Stewart. Forget all the talk about new offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

Rams RT John St. Clair: He hasn't played a snap in a regular-season game, and he has to protect MVP quarterback Kurt Warner against the Broncos. Titans RB Eddie George: After an injury-marred season, George (right) rededicated himself. Against the Eagles, we find out if it worked or if he's on a downward cycle. Browns WR Kevin Johnson: One year after Dick Vermeil said Johnson wasn't worth a third-round pick, he gets a chance to answer the Chiefs' coach. THE HONORS Game of the week: Steelers at Patriots.

Although it has been reported that the Ravens would be a possible suitor for quarterback Kordell Stewart, the team's top priority remains re-signing quarterback Jeff Blake to a multi-year deal, team sources said. Stewart, who was the Pittsburgh Steelers' starter before losing the job to Tommy Maddox after the third game last season, will be released at the end of this month to help the team get under the $75 million salary cap. Stewart, 30, was scheduled to earn $6.3 million in salary next season.

Are the Ravens teasing or scheming? There have been subtle hints this week that backup quarterback Kordell Stewart might get a chance to make something happen against the Pittsburgh Steelers tomorrow. Stewart, who became one of the league's best multi-dimensional threats in his eight years with the Steelers, will face his old team for the first time since he left after the 2002 season. If the Ravens use Stewart, the plays will probably be specifically designed for him, possibly near the end zone.

Ravens backup quarterback Kordell Stewart doesn't complicate his preseason objectives. He has but two intentions. "The most important thing for me is to come out healthy and make some things happen," Stewart said. To that end, Stewart is right where he wants to be. He has yet to miss a practice and when he has played in preseason games, things have certainly happened. Problem is, many of those things have been troublesome. Now, as has been Stewart's history in other cities when he struggles, he has become the topic of talk-show fodder and message-board subject matter, polarizing his backers, who stress patience, and his detractors, who say he is inept.

Shortly after another Ravens training-camp practice, a scene unfolded that would have been sinister had it happened a mere two years ago. Even today, with Kordell Stewart well removed from being the quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers - and consequently public enemy No. 1 with Ravens fans - seeing those same fans chanting Stewart's name and listening to one with a Ravens logo on his T-shirt offer up a heartfelt, "Welcome to Baltimore, Kordell," the...

The Ravens solved their problem at backup quarterback by bringing in one of their biggest problem-makers, agreeing in principle last night with longtime nemesis Kordell Stewart. The former Pro Bowl selection will sign a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum salary ($760,000) this morning and suit up for the last day of passing camp, where the player known as "Slash" will face an identity crisis of sorts. Before taking the field, the former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback will don the purple jersey of a former heated rival.

SHALL WE LAUGH now and cry later? The Ravens, who had the league's least-productive passing game and 31st-ranked quarterback a year ago, might sign the worst-rated passer from 2003 as a backup. Poor Jamal Lewis. His team's passing game might be nearly invisible for a second straight year. Poor Jim Fassel. He came here to rebuild an offense, hoping to get another shot as a head coach in the NFL, and the Ravens are about to dump a puppet on him. That former job opening in Buffalo ain't looking too bad now, is it, Jimmy?
