When Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith caught three touchdown passses as a rookie against the St. Louis Rams, receivers coach Jim Hostler told him not to grow accustomed to being that wide open every game. It's been good advice for the former University of Maryland standout. Although the passing connection between quarterback Joe Flacco and Smith has remained productive all season, it's been difficult for them to strike deep on a consistent basis. Smith leads the Ravens with 41 receptions for 753 yards and is averaging 18.4 yards per reception, but has caught just two touchdown passes.

GREENBELT - Aaron McCown, a youth football coach embraced by his team despite a criminal past, was sentenced yesterday to 61/2 years in prison for using a loaded pistol to intimidate a referee. Like many others, U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow seemed to consider McCown an enigma: a man with a lengthy record - including heroin dealing and assault - who earned a community service award from the Johns Hopkins University five years ago for volunteering to help coach the Old Town Gators, a Pop Warner team in East Baltimore, each fall.

For every ex-offender Bonnie Ariano and her staff at Jericho have helped resettle in Baltimore, there are hundreds they haven't helped - not because they don't want to, but because they don't have the resources to meet the demand. It's the same for every other organization in the city that helps former prisoners. The state's primary responsibility ends when those offenders leave prison, even though statistics show 52 percent of them will return in three years. Public safety loses out in that equation, and it shouldn't.

Before you saw the Old Town Gators, you heard them coming. "WHO GOT YOUR BACK?" the pint-sized football players would chant as they marched in their electric blue-and-orange uniforms through East Baltimore streets to their home field on game days. "I GOT YOUR BACK!" the 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds would echo back over the sound of cleats clicking on pavement. Leading the parade - often chanting and clapping with dreadlocks flying - was their 31-year-old coach, Aaron McCown. A one-time high school quarterback and wrestler, he said it pumped up his players to march through "the projects," where many of them lived.

There will be no Mardi Gras in New Orleans for the Saints this season, no Super Bowl run in Chicago for the Bears, and the only playoff in Philadelphia will be on talk radio over who starts at quarterback for the Eagles next season. It was crying time in the NFC yesterday, when those three 2006 playoff teams virtually dropped out of postseason contention. The Saints, Bears and Eagles are all 5-7, and yes, mathematically, they're still in the wild-card hunt. But the race for the sixth and final playoff berth in the NFC is being pursued by no less than six teams.

At this point, patience is needed. The Ravens are interested in a number of veteran quarterbacks, but it would be foolish to reveal their hand so early into the offseason. It's the game outside the game. Will they sign a potential unrestricted free agent such as Drew Brees, Charlie Batch, Jon Kitna, Josh McCown, Kurt Warner or Jeff Garcia? Or will they sign a possible salary cap casualty like Steve McNair, Kerry Collins, Aaron Brooks or Daunte Culpepper? A lot of things can and will change in the coming months, but early indications point to Collins being the perfect fit to become the Ravens' starting quarterback in 2006.

The night before the Arizona Cardinals' Nov. 21 game at Carolina, coach Dennis Green benched quarterback Josh McCown and launched a three-game losing streak. Today, when Green goes back to McCown against San Francisco, he still has a chance - even at 4-8 - to get back into the division race in the laughable NFC West. McCown lost his starting job in Week 11 after passing for just 90 yards in a win over the New York Giants. Unhappy with the state of his offense, Green started veteran Shaun King for two games and rookie John Navarre for one. The result was two touchdowns, 10 interceptions and three losses.
