Faced with the possibility of playing without starting linebacker Ray Lewis and backup Mike Smith, the Ravens initially didn't have a clear-cut replacement. But after the Ravens dug a little deeper in their roster, it's not surprising who they settled on: Jarret Johnson, the grittiest player on the team.

I was hoping the Ravens would get Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin at No. 17 overall, but he went to the Dallas Cowboys at No. 16 instead. He could have helped the Ravens offensive line, easily the weakest unit on the team last season. A lot of scouts and draft experts thought Martin was a solid pick, very tough and versatile. The selection of Alabama inside linebacker C.J. Mosley is a good pick. Initially, I didn't like it because the Ravens needed more immediate help at both the offensive line and at free safety.

Offensive MVP: Running back Jamal Lewis Defensive MVP: Linebacker Ray Lewis Biggest surprise, offense: Fullback Alan Ricard Biggest surprise, defense: Linebacker Ed Hartwell Run offense (19th in NFL): The Ravens have had mixed results with their running game. Running back Jamal Lewis is averaging 80.8 yards a game just a year removed from reconstructive knee surgery. The lead blocking of fullback Alan Ricard has been a pleasant surprise. The Ravens have relied on trickery at times, gaining 96 yards on 12 reverses to receivers and tight end Todd Heap.

For the fans who packed M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday and stayed in their seats at halftime to see Ray Lewis inducted into the Ravens Ring of Honor, it would be hard to imagine a more appropriate way to honor the greatest Raven of them all. Sure, Lewis got an amazing reception from the sellout crowd of 71,168 when he walked onto the field before the game and again during the halftime ceremony that featured an impressive VIP list of NFL Hall of Famers...

There is a sense of urgency among the 2006 Ravens. It has been there since Day One of training camp. You don't hear about it, but you can feel it. The Ravens have gathered some of the game's best talent at certain positions, but a lot of them are on the downside of their careers. And that raises a major question for the remainder of the season: Can the Ravens get enough out of these veterans to make a serious push for the playoffs? That's what the sense of urgency is all about. They know there is this season, and maybe one more, for a serious run by veterans such as linebacker Ray Lewis, running back Jamal Lewis, offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, quarterback Steve McNair, cornerback Samari Rolle, defensive end Trevor Pryce and receiver Derrick Mason.

Linebacker Ray Lewis told reporters after the season-ending loss to the New England Patriots that he planned to return for a 17th NFL season, but the team is still awaiting word from free safety Ed Reed. “Ed doesn't give definitive answers,” Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said, adding that he thinks Reed “still has the desire to play.” Bisciotti said it would be difficult to replace both Lewis and Reed at their respective positions, but he believes the Ravens already have their replacements -- in terms of impact -- on the roster in linebacker Terrell Suggs, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and cornerback Jimmy Smith.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - -Steve Hauschka failed to finish off the Ravens' kicking battle. The favorite after two preseason games, Hauschka missed wide right on a 27-yard field goal on the Ravens' first drive Saturday night. It marked his first miss after making his first three attempts of the preseason. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens were ready to announce the winner after the game, but he now will wait until Thursday's preseason finale at Atlanta. "It was a little bit disappointing," said Harbaugh, who noted that he was displeased with Hauschka's kickoffs as well.

QB D Joe Flacco played well to get the Ravens this far, but last night was not one of his better games. He stared down receivers and was intercepted three times. In the first half, he looked and played like a rookie. OL D This group got no push on the Steelers, and the Ravens had trouble running the ball. Pittsburgh was a lot faster than the Ravens, and the middle of the defensive line had problems trying to contain the pressure. WR C- Whenever the Ravens play good teams, the lack of a top receiver to complement Derrick Mason is there for everyone to see. Mark Clayton wasn't a factor, and neither was tight end Todd Heap.

Free agency has broken up that old purple gang of ours. A handful of heroes from the Ravens' surprising run up to the AFC championship game - center Jason Brown, linebacker Bart Scott and safety Jim Leonhard - all hopped the Payday Express and are in other NFL cities. Even so, the Ravens will be better when they line up for Game 1 than when they trudged off Heinz Field after losing the title game. Linebacker Ray Lewis, after doing his best Hamlet rumination of whether "to be or not to be" a Raven, decided to stay.

Wearing a black fedora and a dark checkered blazer and with his daughter at his side, Ray Lewis attended the premiere screening of the DVD that chronicles the Ravens' Super Bowl winning season last night at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric. His first offseason appearance in Baltimore as a retired player, Lewis admitted that it felt a little weird to not be preparing for another year of football. “Honestly, there's no pressure because every year is always a new year, every offseason is always a new offseason.

Mitch Ross, the supplement maker who allegedly provided deer antler velvet spray to Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis, said during a news conference Friday that he's received death threats from angry Ravens fans. Ross didn't provide any specific information about the alleged threats, though. "It's unfortunate that I'm getting death threats from Ravens fans," said a sleeveless Ross, who was wearing a black skull cap and displaying bottles of the spray and other products, including performance chips, which aren't banned by the NFL.

The city of Baltimore could not be more excited (well, I guess they haven't turned the harbor purple ... yet) for Sunday's Super Bowl which, pits the Ravens against the San Francisco 49ers. Madison Avenue execs are not so thrilled. According to Bob Dorfman, a sports marketing expert at San Franciscco's Baker Street Advertising, the game will be short on endorsement talent. Dorfman sees only two players who could use the game to catapult toward major deals: Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

In a story that includes the phrase "he asks between squirts of deer antler," Sports Illustrated brings the fascinating story of two men aggressively marketing a line of health care supplements -- hologram stickers, the aforementioned deer antler spray, powders, underwear drenched in liquid (seriously) -- to college and pro athletes. The company's name explains the concept: S.W.A.T.S., which stands for Sports with Alternatives to Steroids. At the center of the story is none other than Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who is in New Orleans preparing to play the final game of his NFL career on Sunday.

Sales of Ray Lewis' jerseys have risen nearly 2,000 percent since he announced his retirement, according to Fanatics.com data (do not click on the link if you are a Notre Dame fan, for you will be bombarded with crimson gear for sale). Since then, Lewis' jersey is the top-selling NFL jersey for the online retailer, right ahead of - wait for it - Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. The Ravens play the Broncos in Denver on Saturday. Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady round out the top five.

Linebacker Ray Lewis made his return from a torn right triceps Sunday, and after he performed what was probably the most anticipated pre-game dance in football history, he quickly made a dent on the stat sheet. In Baltimore's 24-9 win over Indianapolis, Lewis made a game-high 13 tackles, nine of the solo variety. Only fellow graybeard London Fletcher of the Washington Redskins made more tackles during wild card weekend. Lewis made a tackle for a loss early in the game, and he was also credited with a pass defended when he dropped what should have been an easy interception of Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in the second quarter.

Linebacker Ray Lewis will likely play his last game at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday, but it might be the last home game for Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed as well. Lewis said Wednesday he will retire at the end of the season and Reed hasn't commented on future plans. It's possible the Ravens won't re-sign Reed once his contract expires after this season. If re-signing Reed appeared likely, the Ravens would have made that move by now. Lewis' retirement appears to be the start of reshaping this team and bringing in some fresh blood, so to speak.

The Ravens activated the veteran linebacker from the injured reserve with a designation to return list on Wednesday, a procedural move that makes him eligible to play in the opening round of the playoffs next week against either the Bengals or Indianapolis Colts. To make room for Lewis, the Ravens placed wide receiver LaQuan Williams (Poly, University of Maryland)
