The loss of inside linebacker Ray Lewis to a torn right triceps suffered in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys saps the Ravens of their leading tackler and emotional sparkplug. But according to a pair of NFL Network analysts, the defense should fare fine even without the 13-time Pro Bowler. Speaking on “Thursday Night Kickoff,” former St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk pointed out that the unit hasn't been exactly suffocating through the first six games of the season and that was with Lewis in the starting lineup.

The Ravens' demoralizing 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday was a step back for a team poised to take charge of the AFC North and the overall conference. But why the Ravens performed so dismally is a subject that befuddles many of those who watched Sunday's game and the team's showings in losses to the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 18 and the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 24. Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver and NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin is one of those puzzled by the Ravens' play this season.

The Ravens' 23-20 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night has earned the team a new member with a familiar name on the bandwagon: Michael Irvin. The former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver and Hall of Famer was complimentary of the Ravens during Sunday night's NFL GameDay Final on the NFL Network. Irvin was especially impressed with quarterback Joe Flacco's decision-making and throws in capping a 92-yard game-winning drive with a 26-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith.

"Have you ever really had a teacher? One who saw you as a raw but precious thing, a jewel that, with wisdom, could be polished to a proud shine? If you are lucky enough to find your way to such teachers, you will always find your way back." -- From "Tuesdays with Morrie," Mitch Albom's best-selling book about his weekly sessions with his college mentor. In a swollen Nike shoe box, the hand-written note was still in mint condition. (Does pencil fade?) In 24 years, I had read the note four times.

Never known as one to hold his tongue, loquacious Ravens nickel back Deion Sanders jumped to the defense of two friends, ESPN analyst Michael Irvin and Philadelphia Eagles receiver Terrell Owens. Standing in front of his locker yesterday, Sanders opened his media session by saying Irvin is innocent of a drug charge and Owens got a raw deal in his banishment from the Eagles. Irvin, the former Dallas Cowboys receiver who played five seasons with Sanders, was charged Friday with possession of drug paraphernalia found during a traffic stop.

DETROIT -- The election of this year's Hall of Fame class contained surprises, sentiment and a dose of disappointment. The announcement of the six new members - quarterback Troy Aikman, linebacker Harry Carson, coach John Madden, quarterback Warren Moon, defensive end Reggie White and offensive tackle Rayfield Wright - led to an outpouring of emotions. White's widow, Sara, wept on stage. Madden could hardly contain himself, laughing heartily while banging the lectern with both fists. Michael Irvin, who was left out for a second straight year, did his best to hide the sting while sitting in the audience.

Clearly, there is only one thing that could possibly be worse than the Ravens opening the season 0-2. The Redskins opening 2-0. In fact, it was so galling to watch Dan Snyder jumping up and down (though at his apex, he only reached the height of 5 feet 10) in the final seconds of Monday night's stunning, 14-13 victory over the rival Dallas Cowboys that I switched over to Late Night with David Letterman just in time to hear Martha Stewart explaining how much she enjoyed prison. (Frankly, I'm a little surprised she didn't just bake a cake with a file in it and skip to the Caymans, but I guess when you're worth billions, it's better to gut it out ... sort of like Joe Gibbs with the quarterback thing and Danny with that personality.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Michael Irvin is prolific and talkative. And that's a tough combination to beat. But Alvin Harper, who plays opposite Irvin, made the two biggest catches in Dallas' 30-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers yesterday.Harper, a former high jump champ, is one of the most acrobatic receivers in the NFL. And he proved it again yesterday. After Irvin grabbed a 16-yard third-down pass early in the third quarter as Troy Aikman read blitz perfectly, it was Harper's turn.As he came out of the huddle, Harper said Aikman told him, "I'm coming to you, Harp."

EastNo Troy. No Emmitt. No Michael. No Offense. That's the situation for the Cowboys as they play host to the Packers without any of the "Triplets" -- Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin -- for the first time in this decade. Aikman's out for at least a week because of a concussion. Smith will miss several weeks with a broken hand, and Irvin suffered a spinal cord injury on Oct. 10 and may decide to retire. Dallas coach Chan Gailey is trying to put his best face on the situation, saying, "You've got to get ready to fight the fight."

Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has spent the off-season trying to get his team's focus back on football.He hired Calvin Hill, the former Cowboys running back, and his wife, Janet, to design a program to help the players avoid off-the field problems.Jones even decided not to play an exhibition game outside the country so the Cowboys can concentrate on football in training camp instead of being a traveling circus.Alas, it was probably impossible for the Cowboys to get through an off-season without one major controversy.
