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 fans didn't have to wait until the Cincinnati Bengals scored their final touchdown with six minutes left to clear out of M&T Bank Stadium yesterday. They could have left with about 13 minutes to go, when Kordell Stewart came off the field. It wasn't going to get any better than that for the Ravens or their faithful. It might not get any better the final eight - eight! - games of the season. "It wasn't hard, because I was just playing, like a kid in the Toys R Us, just having fun," Stewart said after scraping off enough rust on short notice to limber up, just briefly, the NFL's creakiest offense.

For a change, there is little controversy surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback situation. In fact, there is more talk about the team's new Heinz Field -- which replaces legendary Three Rivers Stadium -- than there is about the man who will attempt to revamp the passing game. Fans, Steelers coach Bill Cowher and the players have come to accept that, for better or worse, Kordell Stewart is the starter. Last year's Week 1 starter, Kent Graham, is gone. So is former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, replaced by Mike Mularkey.

The Ravens have extended an invitation to Kordell Stewart and a second chance to Chris Redman. Team officials have been in contact with the agent for Stewart and are trying to arrange a visit as early as next week for the former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback. But if the Ravens sign Stewart or any other free-agent quarterback, there will be an open competition for the starting job. Redman was 3-3 as a first-year starter last season before a herniated disc sidelined him for the final 10 weeks of the season.

While many veteran quarterbacks might have questioned whether their training was in vain, Kordell Stewart had no such thoughts. Stewart, working out daily with his personal trainer and a former coach, said he kept in shape knowing his time would come despite the start of the NFL season and no job prospects in sight. "This game, especially at the quarterback position, sometimes comes down to a numbers game," said Stewart, 32. "You can only have three QBs. "I am young compared to some quarterbacks who are playing right now. I have my confidence, and did I think this would happen?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It might have been the understatement of the season. In the midst of everything the Ravens did to beat the New York Jets yesterday, and did to nearly lose it, one play, one moment, one decision determined the outcome. It altered the direction of the Ravens' season and reversed the perception of its most critical and criticized player. Jamal Lewis said that watershed play - the Option Pass Heard 'Round the World (Or At Least the AFC) - "gave us a little break. It gave us a little bit of an edge."

At 5 foot 11 and 178 pounds, place kicker Matt Stover is not the most physically intimidating member of the Baltimore Ravens. His right leg, however, has been an important and consistent key to the team's success. Stover enters his 14th year in the NFL as one of the league's best kickers. Last season, he posted 134 points, a field goal percentage of 86.8 (33 of 38), and was perfect in extra points (35 of 35). Despite his stellar performance, Stover's contributions are often forgotten, as he is not an every down player.

The shoulder injury that could shelve Anthony Wright for at least the first month of the season has opened the door for Kerry Collins. Wright, the Ravens' backup quarterback, will undergo surgery on his right (throwing) shoulder as soon as today and, in the worst-case scenario, could be sidelined for the entire season. This unsettling jolt to their depth chart has prompted the Ravens to begin their pursuit of Collins, the former New York Giants starter and the top quarterback on the NFL free-agent market.

Antonio Bryant brought a brash attitude into the NFL draft last April and it dumped him into the bottom of the second round. Deion Branch brought a reputation as a playmaker who played bigger than his 5-foot-9 frame and it elevated him from a fourth-round projection into the top 65. Arriving in the second round from opposite directions, these two rookies have shown once again the NFL draft is no science. They are among the headliners in the class of 2002 wide receivers that already is distinguishing itself.

As the Ravens' passing camp opened yesterday, Randy Hymes looked like he was having an identity crisis. A starting receiver at the end of last season, Hymes was throwing tight spirals in one drill before running a few routes of his own. But Hymes, who is still making the transition from college quarterback to NFL receiver, has no grand designs on playing a dual role outside of practice. Instead of becoming the next "Slash" - the nickname given to multidimensional threat Kordell Stewart - Hymes is focused on making the cut as a starting receiver.
