Offensive Linemen

One of the few criticisms the Ravens have encountered after their 37-7 thumping of the St. Louis Rams on Sunday was the decision to have quarterback Joe Flacco run the offense in the last 3 minutes, 10 seconds of the game. Keeping Flacco in a game that had already been decided might put the franchise quarterback at risk to a season-ending injury, but coach John Harbaugh said during his weekly briefing Monday that allowing Flacco to play with reserves like offensive linemen Bryan Mattison and Jah Reid, wide receivers LaQuan Williams and Tandon Doss and running back Anthony Allen could provide benefits in the long run. “We did replace as many guys as we could,” Harbaugh began.

Douglass' running backs rolled up the yardage Friday afternoon, but they didn't take the credit for the 48-6 win over Northwestern in a Baltimore City Division II football game. "My offensive line is the key to this," said senior running back Maurice McFadden, who ran for two touchdowns. "We've got a lot of offensive linemen who work hard day in and day out. Hats off to them. They did this. " The host Ducks (2-0, 1-0 division) dominated the line of scrimmage and scored on seven of their nine possessions.

With the Ravens now officially in the "Festivus," the well-dressed Baltimore fan may want to pick up a stylish new Festivus T-shirt to go along with the requisite giant foam-finger, purple hard hat and full camo gear. The brainchild of offensive lineman Edwin Mulitalo, the black T-shirts with purple lettering say "Happy Festivus Baltimore Style" and, once printed up this week, will sell for $19.95. Festivus, you may recall, was the word the Ravens came up with as a substitute for "playoffs" a couple of weeks ago, after coach Brian Billick banned the P-word from being uttered by the entire organization.

Survival game The Ravens' offense managed only three field goals but it left satisfied. After losing two offensive linemen (left tackle Adam Terry and center Mike Flynn) on one series in the first half, the Ravens had to gut it out with three rookie blockers. Plus, with Todd Heap and Daniel Wilcox sidelined, the Ravens played with one healthy tight end (Quinn Sypniewski). Back and kicking After uncharacteristically missing two field-goal attempts a week ago, Matt Stover carried the Ravens offensively with three field goals yesterday, converting from 26, 32 and 49 yards.

Record-breaking wide receiver Deon Long and offensive lineman Silvano Altamirano have signed letters of intent to play football at Maryland, coach Randy Edsall announced today.

The NFL has released some intimate audio and video from the sidelines of Super Bowl XLVII, and one of the most interesting exchanges was filmed on the Ravens sideline before the final play of Baltimore's 34-31 win. As Sam Koch prepared to boot a free kick to San Francisco 49ers return Ted Ginn Jr., quarterback Joe Flacco told his teammates to run onto the field and tackle Ginn if it looked like he was going to score. This, of course, is illegal and could have resulted in an automatic touchdown, but Flacco wasn't sure about the rule.

Ravens end a run on offensive linemen The Ravens, who have said all offseason that they would like to improve their offensive line, watched as a run on offensive linemen unfolded between their two picks in the second round. Two picks after the Ravens drafted Upshaw at pick No. 37, the Cleveland Browns selected California offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz. Three picks later, the Carolina Panthers took Midwestern State guard Amini Silatolu. In the next two picks, the Buffalo Bills drafted Georgia guard/tackle Cordy Glenn and the Miami Dolphins drafted Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin.

You never know what's going to happen next with these guys. At any time, in the middle of practice, a comedy skit is liable to break out.Normal is not a word you would use to describe the Baltimore CFLs' offensive linemen -- not unless you consider a forward roll into a karate stance at the line of scrimmage normal behavior.No, these guys -- tackles Neal Fort and Shar Pourdanesh, guards Keith Ballard, John and Guy Earle, and center Nick Subis -- transcend the nameless, faceless mob who populate offensive lines throughout football.

The knock on Darrell Russell is that he tends to relax occasionally, exhibiting a glaring lack of effort.The rest of the time he is on the field, though, Russell is usually knocking one or more offensive linemen backward in his quest to inflict damage on a ball carrier or a quarterback. At 6 foot 5, 315 pounds, with enough agility to dunk a basketball and enough strength to bench-press 415 pounds, Russell often has his way.Since Russell, Southern Cal's peerless defensive tackle, figures to be the first player picked when the New York Jets open the NFL draft on Saturday, it seems the league's talent evaluators are convinced enough of his performance and potential to look past lazy moments.
