We learned last January that Ravens running back Ray Rice doesn't like it when you lob a certain F-word at him. After fumbling twice in the team's wild-card win over the Indianapolis Colts, Rice defiantly said that he wasn't a fumbler and that it wouldn't happen again. It did three games later, in the second half of the Super Bowl, but the Ravens defense bailed Rice out after the turnover by holding the San Francisco 49ers to a field goal. The lost fumble was forgotten after the Ravens held off the 49ers to win the Super Bowl, but the turnovers in the playoffs are still fresh on the mind of one NFL Network analyst who knows a thing or two about fumbling.

ONE OF the Ravens' goals may be to shut down and shut up Terrell Owens, but their main mission is to control quarterback Donovan McNabb. Without McNabb, there is no Owens. Without Owens, the Philadelphia Eagles offense becomes extremely limited. With that said, how do the Ravens plan to stop McNabb tomorrow at Lincoln Financial Field? No one else has. "I think the biggest thing that makes McNabb so good is that, as a defensive coordinator, you don't know if you should blitz the guy or sit back," said Detroit defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson, whose Lions were blown out, 30-13, by the Eagles earlier this year.

The showcase games in Week 8 were headlined by some of the least popular quarterbacks in the league. Sunday's game between the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers pitted two vastly different QBs -- in both their style on the field and the way they have carried themselves off of it -- against each other. Tom Brady, he of the Uggs boots and once a noted endorser of Bieber bangs, is a pretty boy quarterback with three Super Bowl rings (and a supermodel wife) who drives the Ravens wild whenever he whines to the zebras about them hitting him too hard.

PHILADELPHIA - Anybody see Rush Limbaugh last night? Maybe he would have seen what the rest of the league has been seeing for years. The Philadelphia Eagles' Donovan McNabb may not be the prototype for an NFL quarterback, but he can beat a team in so many ways. McNabb completed 21 of 39 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns, as well as rushing for 107 yards on 11 carries in the Eagles' 20-17 overtime win against the Green Bay Packers before 67,707 at Lincoln Financial Field in an NFC semifinal.

PHILADELPHIA - The quarterback shootout was a bust. We had come to expect more. After three great playoff games last week, one in San Francisco and one in Pittsburgh, and another in Tennessee yesterday, the anticipated duel between New Wave quarterbacks Donovan McNabb of Philadelphia and Atlanta's Michael Vick was supposed to be one of the highlights of the postseason. But it never happened. A partisan crowd of 66,452 walked out of Veterans Stadium last night happy because the Eagles defeated the Falcons, 20-6, in an NFC semifinal that allows the City of Brotherly Love to say goodbye to its antiquated dump of a stadium in fine fashion next week in the conference championship.

Donovan McNabb has an abdominal strain that will likely need surgery, but the Philadelphia Eagles' medical staff said the quarterback can play if he can handle the pain. Trainer Rick Burkholder said rest will not fix the problem. While McNabb will experience discomfort, Burkholder said McNabb does not have to be sidelined now for the sports hernia. Philadelphia's Pro Bowl quarterback is expected to start Sunday against Kansas City. McNabb was tested last week for the sports hernia, a tear in the abdominal area, but coach Andy Reid called the injury an abdominal strain after the Eagles' win over Oakland.

General manager Ozzie Newsome disputed an ESPN report that the Ravens are pondering making a substantial offer for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. "We have not had one meeting to discuss any personnel on our team or anyone else's team," Newsome said yesterday. "We've been very busy hiring assistant coaches." There has been speculation linking the Ravens to McNabb since the team hired longtime Eagles assistant John Harbaugh to replace head coach Brian Billick. If the Ravens decide they are interested in trading for McNabb, it likely would take at least a first-round pick, a move that doesn't fit the team's track record.

Donovan McNabb was among the last to leave the Syracuse locker room early yesterday morning. He emerged wearing an olive suit and white shoes and feeling some heartache beneath his ever-present smile.McNabb, the option quarterback who accounted for more than 10,000 yards running and passing in his career, had spent time trading hugs and handshakes with the 11 other Syracuse seniors whose last game became a nightmarish 31-10 loss to Florida in the Orange Bowl on Saturday night."We're upset about the loss," McNabb said.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Tom Brady was asked last week whether he saw any similarities between himself and his counterpart in today's Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Eagles' Donovan McNabb. His instinctive reaction: He laughed. Not rudely or insultingly - humble by nature, the New England Patriots' two-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player barely acknowledges any superiority over the rest at his position. But he couldn't miss the stylistic differences between himself and McNabb, either. "There are so many things I wish I could do that I'll never be able to do," he said.

Outside looking in Dieter Kurtenbach Sun Sentinel Donovan McNabb looked to be a surefire Hall of Famer in his Eagles heyday, but as his career unceremoniously has wound down, so have his chances. Using McNabb's stats as the barometer becomes a Rorschach test — is he of the caliber of Steve McNair, Mark Brunell, Boomer Esiason, Randall Cunningham and Steve Grogan, or is he with Terry Bradshaw, Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach and Joe Montana? The numbers say he's among both.

If Marc Bulger leaves Baltimore as a free agent this offseason to become a starter elsewhere, the Ravens will likely be in the market for another able veteran to back up fourth-year quarterback Joe Flacco. Might that veteran signal-caller be Donovan McNabb, who is on the outs in Washington? Sure, it would take a few things to fall into place around the NFL -- and then Flacco and McNabb checking their egos at the locker room door -- but the possibility shouldn’t be ruled out. The market for McNabb is reportedly drying up . The Titans and the Vikings, two teams who were desperate for quarterback help, selected Jake Locker and Christian Ponder, respectively, in the first round of last month’s NFL draft.

In their most important game of the season, the Eagles lost by five. And by 5. That's the jersey number of Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, who wore that same number for 11 years in Philadelphia before the Eagles traded him in April. Along the way in their 17-12 loss to the Redskins, the Eagles lost quarterback Michael Vick, who suffered an undisclosed rib injury on a dazzling run up the middle at the end of the first quarter when he was sandwiched just shy of the goal line.

Washington 17, Philadelphia 12 Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Donovan McNabb's much-anticipated return was a triumphant one, as the former franchise quarterback for the Eagles led the Washington Redskins in a 17-12 victory over Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field. McNabb, who spent the previous 11 seasons quarterbacking the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance, played against his former squad for the first time in his career. Traded in the offseason, McNabb returned to his old grounds to a rousing ovation.

PHILADELPHIA — Michael Vick is no big deal with the Redskins. He's 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds, to be exact. That's the size of smoking-fast Redskins rookie Brandon Banks, a practice-squad wide receiver who this past week was assigned to emulate the Eagles quarterback in advance of Sunday's game. Opposing teams will do just about anything to simulate the challenge presented by Vick, who has thrown six touchdown passes and run 23 times for an average of 7.4 yards a carry.

It's the second time in two years that the Bengals went after a high-profile free agent receiver, then changed their minds soon after signing him. They got Laveranues Coles to replace T.J. Houshmandzadeh last year, then released him...

The only thing injured on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb yesterday was his pride, and his benching might eventually cost coach Andy Reid his job. Quarterbacks and head coaches are often tied together when it comes to job security, and when one goes, the other often shortly follows. Just ask former Ravens coach Brian Billick and Kyle Boller. Reid benched his star quarterback after a miserable first half in which McNabb completed just 8 of 18 passes for 59 yards and had two interceptions and a quarterback rating of 13.2.

PHILADELPHIA - Randy Moss had the big mistake, Terrell Owens had the big catch, but Donovan McNabb made all the big plays to push the Philadelphia Eagles to a 27-16 victory over the Minnesota Vikings last night. After a week of braggadocio from the two mouthy wide receivers - Moss of the Vikings and Owens of the Eagles - this Monday night special came down to McNabb's arm and legs. He threw for two touchdowns and ran 20 yards for another to steal the show as the Eagles improved to 2-0 this season and 7-1 on Monday night under coach Andy Reid.

So far, so good for Donovan McNabb and the Redskins. McNabb, traded to Washington by the NFC East rival Eagles in the offseason, completed 5 of 8 passes for 58 yards and a touchdown Friday night in a 42-17 win over the Bills in Landover, Md. in the exhibition opener. On the Redskins' second possession, McNabb hit Anthony Armstrong for a 4-yard touchdown on third down as Armstrong barely stretched the ball over the line. "It was an exciting time," said McNabb, who played two series.
