The wife of former Baltimore Raven Michael C. McCrary is seeking a protective order against the retired defensive end, claiming her husband brandished a handgun during an argument, tossed a 45-pound metal kitchen stool at her and threatened to "ruin" her in a series of encounters dating to 2008. "He's an 11 year veteran of the NFL and is volatile and violent," Mary Haley McCrary, 40, said in a hand-written statement that was part of a protective order petition filed late Friday in Baltimore County District Court and obtained by the Baltimore Sun. "I fear for my life."

When the Ravens drafted Jarret Johnson in the fourth round in 2003, there were some questions about his longevity in the NFL. After all, he was considered too small to play the defensive tackle position he played at the University of Alabama and too big to play linebacker. On Sunday, Johnson, who lost 25 pounds to become an outside linebacker, overtook former defensive end Michael McCrary and former linebacker Jamie Sharper as the franchise's all-time leader in consecutive starts with his 74th straight start in the team's 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

During the past two years, the NFL's best pass rushers have been Kevin Greene, Chris Doleman, Michael Sinclair, John Randle, Bruce Smith and Michael McCrary. No, this is not a misprint. It's Ravens right defensive end Michael McCrary.The same guy who always looks like he was inflated by an air hose and weighs 280 pounds before the season from all the creatine digested and hours in the weight room. And the same McCrary who shrivels to 260 pounds and looks like a popped balloon by the middle of the season.

Matt Stover, the leading scorer in Ravens' history and an important member of the 2000 Super Bowl-winning team, will be placed in the team's Ring of Honor at halftime of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Stover played 18 seasons with the Ravens/Browns before finishing his career with the Indianapolis Colts in 2009. Only middle linebacker Ray Lewis has had a longer tenure with the Ravens than Stover did. With the Ravens, Stover accounted for 1,464 points, went 354-for-418 on field-goal attempts and 402-for-403 in extra points.

TAMPA, Fla. - Get your motor running? Michael McCrary's never stops. Like most of the Ravens, the dangerous defensive end gives back to the community, but how many of his teammates have participated in the "Polar Bear Plunge"? That dip into the frigid waters of the Chesapeake Bay benefits the Maryland Special Olympics, one of McCrary's favorite causes. McCrary has gotten his goose bumps off Sandy Point State Park the past three years, but he won't make this winter's event, which is scheduled for Sunday.

In which setting is Michael McCrary more content: blowing by an offensive tackle and dropping a quarterback or discovering an addition to his ever-evolving toy collection?Hard to say. In McCrary's world, work and play wage a constant battle for his attention, and he throws his energy into each domain with similar abandon.Besides addressing a glaring need for a pass rusher, the Ravens signed McCrary to a three-year, $6 million contract last spring with his dogged work habits in mind. McCrary had enjoyed a breakthrough 1996 season in Seattle by tying for the AFC lead with 13.5 sacks.

Their rallying cry is derived from a shared past, a history of overcoming skepticism about their abilities. Rob Burnett was considered a liability after his knee surgery. Tony Siragusa was believed to be overweight and one-dimensional. Michael McCrary was pegged as too small to play end. And Sam Adams was labeled an underachiever. Together, these Ravens turned away the doubts and became the NFL's most fearsome front four. On the field, they're brothers in arms. Off it, they're brothers squabbling.

Nobody should take seriously Rex Ryan's comments about rookie defensive end Paul Kruger wearing No. 99, the jersey of former Ravens standout Michael McCrary. Ryan and all of his former defensive linemen from the 2000 Super Bowl team were very close. In fact, when the Ravens fired head coach Brian Billick, Tony Siragusa, Rob Burnett and Michael McCrary all lobbied owner Steve Bisciotti to make Ryan the next Ravens head coach. I knew Rex Ryan couldn't play the Ravens without some crazy comment.

The wife of former Baltimore Raven Michael C. McCrary was granted a temporary protective order Monday against the retired defensive end. A Baltimore County District Court judge accepted Mary Haley McCrary's position that her husband had threatened her and the couple's nanny who cares for their young daughter. Since it was an ex-parte hearing -- meaning that just one side can argue the case without the defendant being present -- Michael McCrary did not appear in court Monday, but will have an opportunity to do so at a hearing next week.

In the days leading up to Monday night's game at Green Bay, the Ravens have been well schooled on the mystique of Lambeau Field, from Vince Lombardi to the Frozen Tundra to the devotion of the Packers' cheesehead-wearing fans. "You know what comes with Lambeau Field," linebacker Ray Lewis said. "You know the history behind it." The history that has gone unspoken - or perhaps that the Ravens want to forget - is the team's futility at NFC North stadiums. In their 14-year existence, the Ravens have never won at Green Bay, Chicago, Minnesota or Detroit, losing all six games.

T he Ravens, who started the 1998 season at 2-2, lost their third straight game when the Green Bay Packers limited them to 233 yards of total offense in a 28-10 win at legendary Lambeau Field on Oct. 25, 1998. In addition, the Ravens had a full-blown quarterback controversy as Eric Zeier was replaced by Jim Harbaugh in the second half. The key play was a 71-yard punt return by the Packers' Roell Preston just 1:47 into the game. It put the Packers up 7-0 at home, where they had won 25 of their past 26 games.

A usually talkative Bart Scott didn't have to provide any bulletin-board material for Monday night's preseason game between his New York Jets and the Ravens - because his coach did it for him. Rex Ryan, the Ravens' former defensive coordinator, criticized the franchise's decision to give former defensive end Michael McCrary's No. 99 jersey to second-round pick Paul Kruger. "I am disappointed that they gave his jersey to some rookie who hasn't proven" anything, said Ryan, using an expletive as quoted by the Associated Press.

Nearly 1,000 young eyes marveled at the size of half-pound hamburgers, mountains of chicken wings and Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Tony "The Goose" Siragusa yesterday at the NFL team's training camp in Westminster.Those wide eyes belonged to youths from 27 Baltimore Police Athletic League centers, which provide activities to keep inner-city children out of trouble.For most, the 30-mile trip to Western Maryland College was a reward for participation in the PAL program, a chance to chant, "Goose Goose," and slap high-fives with the 6-foot-3, 320-pounder.
