PALM DESERT, Calif. -- A Dallas reporter walked up to Ted Marchibroda's table at the AFC coaches' breakfast during the NFL owners meetings last week, put his tape recorder down and asked, "Ted, are you the team to beat?"It was a reference to Marchibroda's reputation for optimism, and he played right along as he laughed."I think we are [the team to beat]. On the record. This isn't off the record, either. I'll guarantee it. We're not talking our division. We're going all the way," Marchibroda said.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The lure of a second head coaching job may be enough to reunite Ted Marchibroda and the Indianapolis Colts."I'm an assistant coach, and all assistants aspire to be the head man," Marchibroda said yesterday. "If the situation would present itself, then I would have to make a decision."The decision, surprisingly, might be an easy one for Marchibroda, 60, the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. Although the Colts' head coaching position isn't officially open, the team has interviewed Michigan State coach George Perles and incumbent Rick Venturi.

OK, clearly Ted Marchibroda's head was fuzzy. I mean, how else does the guy take the job?He was confused or drugged or his children were being held hostage. Or maybe he was forced to sit next to Thurman Thomas on the long plane ride back from Minneapolis. It can't simply be that he was offered the job and that he took it. Many things defy easy explanation, say Lee Iacocca's salary or Brent Musburger's enduring popularity, but this -- this is impossible to explain or to understand.So, when I turn on the TV to see Marchibroda meet the press, and he says, "I'm very excited to be named coach of the Baltimore Colts," I'm thinking maybe he's talking in code.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- You could make the case for firing Te Marchibroda right now, before the Ravens begin a two-game homestand, before the crowd turns ugly at Camden Yards.You could even make the case for elevating defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis to head coach, because the Ravens likely will lose him at the end of the season if they replace Marchibroda.The failure to show the "considerable improvement" demanded by owner Art Modell, the dismissal of a coach who can't get his offense together, the loss of the one assistant who seems to know what he's doing -- it all figures to happen, anyway.

Jack Trudeau knew of Ted Marchibroda's reputation as a quarterbacking guru long before Marchibroda was appointed coach of the IndianapolisColts for the second time last January. If there was any doubt in Trudeau's mind about the validity of that reputation, he says it was removed last April.Trudeau, the Colts' backup quarterback behind franchise player Jeff George, unknowingly had dropped down in his throwing motion in recent years, from straight over the top to three-quarters. He also had incurred a perplexing sore shoulder in the process.

PITTSBURGH -- This is a veritable homecoming for Theodore Joseph Marchibroda, the son of a steelworker, who grew up to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers and now comes back to try again to beat them as a coach on their own turf, which hasn't happened in previous efforts with teams known as the Colts, first in Baltimore and then Indianapolis.Now, he has the Ravens of Baltimore, an old team with a new name that has played only one game, so his memories are mostly about Pittsburgh. It was a bitter end last January when his squad from Indianapolis visited this same Three Rivers Stadium and fell, 20-16, coming as close to going to the Super Bowl without having to buy a ticket as any team ever has.A desperation pass that was almost caught in the end zone was the difference as the game came down to the final play.

Ted Marchibroda will take the fall today for a lot of problems that weren't his fault.When he becomes the Ravens' former coach today, he will take the fall for a lot of players who didn't deliver; for a flawed organization that lacks vision and walks a financial tightrope; and for an owner who has had one winning season in the '90s.Basically, he will take the fall for a franchise that needs a scapegoat.He's a terrific person, a quality football man, and he deserves better.Not that the Ravens are wrong to replace him after three losing seasons.

Don Shula didn't want the job. Ted Marchibroda did. Who was next on Art Modell's list, Howard Schnellenberger? Weeb Ewbank?Obviously, it hasn't taken Modell long to understand that the past sells in Baltimore. Hey, do you think Jim Speros clued him in before leaving for Quebec? Un moment, monsieur Art?Not that Marchibroda's hiring is the kind of eye-popping stunner that will cause hundreds of fans to give in and plunk down that stinkin' PSL money. It is a conservative choice for a new head coach.

If there were a class on the art of scouting quarterbacks, Ted Marchibroda could teach it. In fact, his students might call him Professor Projector. Taking a page from Sid Gillman, the coaching pioneer who always had a projector within reach and spent most of his honeymoon watching game films, Marchibroda used a 35-millimeter projector to determine how quickly the game's best passers released the ball. That method, he said, would give us even more insight today as to why Peyton Manning is so good.

The masterful schemes of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick are rooted in Baltimore. Belichick, who grew up in Annapolis, broke into the coaching ranks with the Baltimore Colts in 1975 under Ted Marchibroda. As a special assistant, the 23-year-old college grad who was known as "Billy," earned $25 a week. These days, Belichick is one win away from a much bigger payday: his second Super Bowl championship as a head coach. "I would say my confidence really came that first year in Baltimore," said Belichick, the reigning NFL Coach of the Year.

There is an electric air of anticipation around Baltimore as the Ravens conclude their preparations to open the 2001 NFL season in defense of their world championship. This euphoric feeling is in stark contrast to the atmosphere surrounding the training camp of the Baltimore Colts a quarter of a century ago. "Rebellion" rather than "repeat" was the word most often heard among the 1976 Colts, rallying in support of their coach, Ted Marchibroda, who had resigned a week before the season opener in a power struggle with general manager Joe Thomas.

He's not on anyone's mind this week. Especially this week. He's just a nice, older guy who used to work around here. In a way, he's the forgotten Raven. Ted Marchibroda has been gone a whole two years, just feels like 10. In 1996, Marchibroda, who had spent nine years coaching the old Baltimore Colts, became the first head coach of the new Baltimore Ravens. Over three seasons, his record was 16-31-1. In late 1998, Marchibroda was no longer the coach of the Baltimore Ravens. That's ancient history in professional sports, where ancient history is defined as "any time more than two years."

The honeymoon period for first-year Ravens coach Brian Billick and quarterback Stoney Case began coming to an end last night.Billick's offensive unit was booed periodically throughout the game as a sellout crowd of 68,771 and a national television audience watched the Kansas City Chiefs rout the Ravens, 35-8, at PSINet Stadium.Billick was hired last January to pump some emotion into the team and some life into an offense that was one of the worst in the NFL. But last night, the Ravens' offense looked quite similar to the one operated by former coach Ted Marchibroda the past three seasons.

The Ravens' first exhibition game is still eight days away, and they won't play a regular-season game until mid-September, but they already have scored their first victory of 1999.They have defeated boredom, expunging the vanilla predictability that plagued their offense last season under former coach Ted Marchibroda.Even though new coach Brian Billick's first training camp at Western Maryland College is just a week old, it's already obvious that, at the very least, the Ravens will be more fun to watch this season.

Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda was highly upset with yesterday's practice and gave his team another tongue-lashing, the second in four days.The Ravens play the Steelers, the defending AFC and Central Division champions, Sunday, and a win would put them two games up on Pittsburgh.Marchibroda thought his team would come out to practice, the first hard one of the week after Sunday's opening victory over the Oakland Raiders, with intensity and emotion. Instead, he said, the Ravens were lifeless.
