Each week, blogger Matt Vensel fires a few questions at rookie cornerback and kick returner Asa Jackson. The Ravens' fifth-round pick in April's draft, Jackson is a Sacramento native who played his college ball at Cal Poly. MV: Let's talk about your fellow rookies. You guys came in together and are growing up together. Being in the same draft class, have you established a bond with some of these players? AJ: Yeah, that's definitely true. That even goes back to all the guys that were in training camp.

This week, I exchanged emails with Jeff Hughes, who blogs about the Chicago Bears for Da Bears Blog . MV: Nine games into the Marc Trestman era, the Bears are a game out of first place in the NFC North despite key injuries. How have the Bears changed under Trestman and how does the hire look today?

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, I chatted with Mike Klis, who covers the Denver Broncos for The Denver Post.

Have you ever seen an offense radically change its philosophy from one season to the next while still having so much success? MK: It has been unique.

Each week, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will fire a few questions at a random Ravens rookie. This week it was nose tackle Brandon Williams, a third-round pick with an impressive set of pipes. MV: All of the players sang "Happy Birthday" to O.J. Brigance in the cafeteria last week. I heard you sing and you were pretty good, so I guess we'll start there. What was it like to serenade O.J. like that? BW: It was cool. I know how much he means to the team and to most of the veterans because they've known him the longest.

Baltimore's oldest cab company and the Maryland Transit Administration are updating their fleets for wheelchair-using customers, replacing small buses and minivans with an SUV-like vehicle that provides a smoother, more civilized ride. The MV-1 is designed specifically to transport disabled passengers and already is in use in cities such as Pittsburgh, Chicago and Dallas. Built in Indiana, it is the only production vehicle that meets Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines. Yellow Cab and sister company 1010 Sedan purchased 10 MV-1s and began using them this week.
