Representing Dunbar High with a maroon suit and maroon tie, Tavon Austin strolled into Radio City Music Hall around 7 p.m. Thursday night to see his lifelong dream fulfilled. At 7:34 p.m., he and 22 other top prospects were introduced to the crowd. Each towered over him. Austin then retreated to the green room, downed a bag of potato chips and watched the draft unfold, his legs shaking the whole time, with a group of family and friends, including his mother, Cathy Green, and grandmother, Louann Green.

The pending arrival of new Ravens safety Darian Stewart comes with a scouting report. Stewart has built a reputation as a tough guy with a lot of pop and as a tackler who excels in run support. However, Stewart isn't known for making a ton of plays in pass coverage despite his above-average speed. "Good safety, good player," said retired former St. Louis Rams defensive tackle D'Marco Farr, an analyst for the organization's broadcasting team. "Good, smart, instinctive guy, underrated hitter.

Kurt Warner's time arrived with the St. Louis Rams on the evening of Aug. 28 in a torrent of anguish, regret and disbelief. Quarterback Trent Green had just gone down with a season-ending knee injury in a preseason game. The Rams' aggressive off-season makeover suddenly looked pointless. The losingest team of the decade seemed consigned to lose some more. Embattled coach Dick Vermeil cried, perhaps sensing that his time in St. Louis was up. Into the middle of this maelstrom of emotion stepped Warner, 28, a veteran of NFL Europe (a league for marginal players)

Even as the Ravens' search for an offensive coordinator appears to be moving away from him, former Detroit Lions assistant Scott Linehan would be their best option. On paper, Linehan has more experience than the three candidates who are reportedly in the running for the job: Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler, Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson and former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. As of midday Thursday, Linehan had not been scheduled for a second interview, according to a league source.

Ravens quarterback Steve McNair missed practice yesterday because of a stiff back, but the Ravens seem confident that he will start Sunday against the winless St. Louis Rams. "It's just his back was stiff this morning," coach Brian Billick said after practice. "I guess he slept on it wrong." McNair has been bothered by a groin injury for most of the season but had not been listed on the injury report. He has missed only one start since being traded to the Ravens last season. Backup quarterback Kyle Boller, who started and won the second game of the season, took all the snaps with the first team yesterday.

Sherrod Hawkes and his Patterson teammates tried not to let it dominate their thoughts leading up to Saturday's Class 2A North regional semifinal football game at Randallstown, but they sure wanted the chance to see Dunbar next week. The Clippers wasted no time setting up another meeting with their Baltimore City rival, jumping out to a 24-point lead over the Rams in less than eight minutes and cruising to a 43-0 win. Hawkes ran for 203 yards on 10 carries and scored three touchdowns.

Here's a look at what national media are saying about the St. Louis Rams drafting former Dunbar star Tavon Austin with the No. 8 pick in the 2013 NFL draft. ** SI.com's Don Banks says the Rams gave up a lot to get Austin, but the West Virginia wide receiver could very well be worth it . St. Louis shipped its 16th overall pick to Buffalo to get to No. 8 for Austin, also throwing the Bills a second-rounder (No. 46), a third-rounder (No. 78) and a seventh-rounder (No. 222)

I don't pretend to know what will happen Sunday when the Ravens play the St. Louis Rams in that soul-less caldron of noise that is the Edward Jones Dome. Sure, I picked the Ravens to win. I sat down at the keyboard, and some kind of sharp pain seized my forehead, like one of those brain freezes you get from pounding ice cream too fast. The next thing I knew, my fat little fingers were typing Ravens 31, Rams 7. But I wouldn't bet the house on that. Because the Ravens are a team still searching for an identity, especially on offense.

Furor over the New York Giants' questionable tactic of faking injuries notwithstanding, the Ravens are concentrating their defensive efforts on neutralizing the St. Louis Rams' no-huddle offense. "It's going to be interesting," seven-time Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed said. "Playing last week helped us out a lot. It's not like we haven't been practicing for it, because we have. But it's just going to be a little bit more up-tempo, which requires everybody's attention. " In Monday night's 28-16 loss to the Giants, St. Louis went to the hurry-up style 11 times, all in the first half.

During a normal practice week, the Rams don't do their red zone work until Friday. But this isn't a normal week. Not after misfiring three times in the red zone Monday against the New York Giants and four times in five trips inside the 20 this season. So on Wednesday, the Rams' did their "Ram-ball" drill in the red zone, instead of in the middle of the field. Ram-ball, coach Steve Spagnuolo explained, "is basically the Rams' offense vs. the Rams' defense. It's usually about eight plays.

MiscellaneousRunning back Earnest Byner needs 103 yards to surpass No. 18 Gerald Riggs and 104 yards to overtake Roger Craig for 17th on the NFL's all-time rushing list. Byner, though, is downplaying the pursuit."I really don't think about it," he said. "Ever since I can remember, as far as sandlot ball, I've always been a standout and always gotten awards. But that's not what I'm about or stand for. Sometimes, though, I do look around at all the trophies and say, 'Wow, this is all unbelieveable that this is happening to me.

ST. LOUIS – The Ravens' 27-21 ugly preseason loss to the St. Louis Rams burst many bubbles and caused coach John Harbaugh to explode in anger. The score didn't reflect the most haphazard showing in the Harbaugh three-year era. The preseason finale at an empty Edward Jones Dome was filled with head-shaking blunders and disgraceful acts. There was Dannell Ellerbe taunting the Rams after the linebacker returned an interception for a touchdown. There was undrafted rookie Prince Miller dropping a punt inside his 10-yard line.

Dannell Ellerbe didn't do himself any favors to win the Ravens' inside linebacker job. After running back an interception early in the second quarter, Ellerbe stopped at the 1-yard line, looked back at the St. Louis Rams and extended the ball over the goal line in a taunting fashion. It was a good play but bad sportsmanship. The sparse crowd at the Edward Jones Dome booed. Ravens coach John Harbaugh ran up to Ellerbe, grabbed the second-year player by his jersey and screamed at him for about 10 seconds.
