Standing before nearly 30 people inside the Charles Theatre, Mike Singletary transforms himself from Ravens linebackers coach to movie critic. It is the first weekend in May, and Singletary is bantering with the gathering about his all-time favorite movie - Shenandoah. As is the case when Singletary talks, all eyes are on him. Despite having not critiqued a movie for an audience before, Singletary knows how to capture a crowd after 10 years of traveling around the country as a part-time motivational speaker.

Sure, you could hoard your Thanksgiving leftovers and just eat them yourself over the next couple of weeks. But is that really in the spirit of the season? Mr. Flip says you need to share them. Here's his idea: Take those leftovers, put them in paper bags - Mr. Flip has plenty you could use - and give them to some people who could truly benefit from turkey, stuffing or sweet potatoes. Of course, Mr. Flip has suggestions: * Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Yes, they are lovely women, but so skinny.

SAN DIEGO - Mike Singletary could be named the Ravens' linebackers coach by next week, an NFL source said yesterday. The Chicago Bears Hall of Fame linebacker is in Baltimore and has been offered the job by Ravens coach Brian Billick. Singletary has been contacted by a couple of teams about becoming an assistant coach but is deciding between the Ravens and Detroit Lions, the source added. Singletary's wife is from Detroit, but he apparently is leaning toward joining the Ravens. Singletary, who retired in 1992, has no coaching experience, but he had a reputation for great attention to detail as one of the game's best linebackers.

Mike Singletary was named linebackers/assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers yesterday, a move insiders say should help him move closer to a head coaching job. Singletary is expected to have more responsibilities with the 49ers than with the Ravens, with whom he'd been linebackers coach the past two seasons. The 49ers hired former Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Nolan earlier this week, and Nolan made hiring Singletary one of his first priorities. San Francisco asked the Ravens for permission to speak with Singletary the day Nolan was hired, and the Ravens granted the request, citing the opportunity for Singletary.

Taking another step toward finalizing their revamped staff, the Ravens hired former NFL safety Mark Carrier to coach the secondary yesterday. Carrier played 11 years in the league and developed a reputation as one of the nastiest players of his era, accumulating tens of thousands of dollars in fines and getting suspended for a game in each of his last three seasons for helmet-to-helmet hits. Carrier, who started his career with the Chicago Bears in 1990, has spent the past two seasons coaching cornerbacks at Arizona State.

SAN DIEGO - The Chicago Bears' loss is the Ravens' Hall of Fame gain. Turned down by his former team, Mike Singletary joined the staff of the Ravens yesterday for his first coaching job. He signed a three-year contract to become the team's linebackers coach and will tutor perennial All-Pro Ray Lewis. Singletary, 44, talked to Bears coach Dick Jauron twice about beginning his coaching career in Chicago, where the Hall of Fame middle linebacker played from 1981 to 1992. But the Bears passed on Singletary because they refused to move linebackers coach Gary Moeller to their vacant defensive line opening.

49ers@Cardinals 8:30 p.m. [ESPN] Expect much of the focus to be on San Francisco coach Mike Singletary and Tony Kornheiser to make at least one dropping-the-pants joke (most likely better than the one in the "5 things" on the previous page). Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner (right) is experiencing a second childhood, helped by a stellar receiving corps. Who's Matt Leinart?
