CORTLAND, N.Y. — Some visuals just take getting used to. It was that way with Brett Favre in purple, or Donovan McNabb in burgundy. And it's that way with LaDainian Tomlinson in Jets green, a guy who for so long was synonymous with the Chargers. For Tomlinson, it isn't odd at all. He says he saw his road coming to an end in San Diego at least a couple of years ago. "I'm not going to say I wasn't happy, but I started to see my departure out of San Diego way before you guys did," he told a reporter during a break between training-camp practices.

Pats like proven vets Ken Murray Baltimore Sun If LaDainian Tomlinson limits his prospective employment to teams capable of winning the Super Bowl, he has reduced his options to a very small field. And then he's going to have to take a very modest contract, given his performance level in 2009 (730 rushing yards, 3.3 per carry, 20 catches) for a very good team. There is a reasonably good chance no Super Bowl contender will offer Tomlinson, 30, that chance.

SAN DIEGO - - Nose tackle Jamal Williams was placed on injured reserve Saturday, which means the San Diego Chargers will be without two starting defensive linemen against the Ravens. Williams suffered an elbow injury during Monday night's victory over the Oakland Raiders and had been listed as questionable on the team's injury report. The move ends Williams' season. He will join defensive end Travis Johnson (groin) on the sideline, leaving San Diego with only one defensive tackle (Ogemdi Nwagbuo)

It's common knowledge in the NFL that the Ravens have had one of the most dominating run defenses over the past decade. But what goes unnoticed is that their run defense is even more stout at home. If the Washington Redskins' Clinton Portis lines up at M&T Bank Stadium - he has been battling injuries but has yet to miss a game this season - he'll try to do something no running back has been able to do in three seasons: gain 100 yards on the Ravens' home turf. The last back to do so was Houston's Domanick Davis in 2005, but that comes with an asterisk.

First, the Madden curse. Now, a Chunky Soup curse? With NFL players who grace the cover of EA Sports' most popular video game suffering season-ending injuries, a similar hex has been following players who serve as spokesmen for Campbell's canned product. But Ravens tight end Todd Heap, who is one of eight NFL players appearing in ads for Chunky Soup later this year, isn't buying the notion of a Chunky Soup curse. "I'm not really worried about that," said Heap, ignoring the injuries that have befallen previous Campbell's spokesmen such as quarterbacks Donovan McNabb, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Hasselbeck, linebacker Brian Urlacher and defensive end Michael Strahan.

HOW THE RAVENS WON Showing great resilience, new Ravens quarterback Steve McNair put his stamp on the team by leading it back from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter. McNair was 10-for-16 for 91 yards in the pivotal fourth quarter after going 13-for-25 for 173 yards in the first three quarters. PLAY OF THE GAME With the Ravens desperately needing a defensive stop late in the fourth quarter, cornerback Chris McAlister jumped in front of receiver Braylon Edwards and made the game-turning interception in the end zone.

Defense wins championships. But it doesn't get eyeballs on the screen. Hey, I'm only the messenger. Everybody in town wants to know why the Ravens come off an AFC championship game appearance and are on national television only three times. That's why. Defense is why the Ravens are the Ravens, and that has never made any team in any sport must-see TV. Just ask the Detroit Pistons and San Antonio Spurs earlier this decade. Great defenses, great understanding of the fundamentals of winning - and in the NBA playoffs, they were the networks' twin nightmares.

The Ravens weren't slighted this time. After getting passed over for every Player of the Year honor, the Ravens had the only unanimous selection to the Associated Press All-Pro team - Ed Reed. The Ravens' free safety was selected by everyone on the AP's nationwide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the NFL. Reed finished the regular season with an NFL-leading nine interceptions, returning two of them for touchdowns. Joining Reed on the All-Pro team were middle linebacker Ray Lewis and fullback Le'Ron McClain, a first-time selection.

The Ravens have recently talked with veteran NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer about their head coaching vacancy, Schottenheimer's agent said yesterday. "There's been some discussion but nothing substantive," said Trace Armstrong, a former NFL player who represents Schottenheimer. Schottenheimer, 64, is expected to wait until the Ravens are done with the first round of interviews before speaking with them again. The hiring of Schottenheimer would entail the least amount of risk in replacing Brian Billick.

If the playoffs started today, the Ravens would not make the postseason. But if they can clinch a playoff berth by the end of the season, they certainly would have earned it. Starting with Monday night's game in Pittsburgh, the Ravens begin the NFL's fourth-toughest schedule over the final nine weeks of regular season. There are two grudge matches with the Steelers and the league's top-ranked defense. There's LaDainian Tomlinson in Week 12. There's Tom Brady in Week 13. And there's an emotional rematch with the defending Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts in Week 14. Although most of the Ravens have reiterated the party line that their focus is on the Steelers, wide receiver Derrick Mason dared to look ahead, and he could only shake his head at the challenge.

One reason the Ravens have the NFL's best regular-season home record since 2000 is the noise created by their fans. Another factor is an unspoken rule: No one runs on the Ravens on their home field. Teams have to become one-dimensional on offense at M&T Bank Stadium because they can't expect to establish a ground game. The Ravens haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in their past 12 home games. The Houston Texans' Domanick Davis was the last to do so when he gained 155 yards Dec. 4, 2005.

The Chicago Bears caught it all this season - injuries, a quarterback controversy, a tougher schedule and the dreaded Super Bowl jinx. When the defending NFC champions slipped to 1-3 yesterday with a bizarre 37-27 loss to the Detroit Lions, they were merely following a script that has afflicted several previous Super Bowl losers. Six of the past eight teams that lost the Super Bowl didn't reach the playoffs the next season. Roll call includes the Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams, New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons.
