Gabriel Ali-El Poly, running back, senior A slick runner in the Engineers' option offense, Ali-El (5 feet 9, 189 pounds) missed last season's finale with a shoulder injury — a huge loss after he ran for more than 1,200 yards and also had 400 yards receiving. Demond Brown Old Mill, running back, senior A transfer from Annapolis, Brown accounted for 45 percent of the Patriots offense last season, scoring 15 touchdowns and gaining 1,345 yards on 179 carries.

— Maybe in two weeks, we'll finally get to see the real Ravens offense. Hopefully, it wasn't on display Saturday night against the Washington Redskins, because the Ravens were out of sync and erratic. They were unpredictable, but not in a good way. When they should have been going downfield more on third-down situations, they ran short, clearing-out patterns. Quarterback Joe Flacco had problems delivering the ball early and didn't appear to have timing with his receivers because he was getting pressured a lot. There has been a lot of hype about this offense with the additions of receivers Anquan Boldin and Donte' Stallworth during the offseason, but there wasn't much explosion Saturday night.

LOS ANGELES - For someone as Winnebago wide, fearsome and scary as Alabama nose guard Terrence Cody, his most impressive numbers are height (6-foot-5) and weight (354 pounds) over tackles (25) and sacks (zero). Cody is actually down from 410 pounds. During a high school game in Fort Myers, Fla., he landed on tailback Noel Devine, now a star at West Virginia, prompting Devine to vomit. Cody can tell you funny big-man stories, such as trying to shimmy into an airplane lavatory.

If the Ravens' offensive linemen are seeking compliments for their performance in Sunday's 17-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, they're not expecting any from their coaches or even themselves. Despite surrendering no sacks and paving the way for the offense to rush for 229 yards - the sixth most in franchise history - the offensive line shrugged off any temptation to gloat. "It's a start," right offensive tackle Adam Terry said. "We've got to do it next week and the week after that in order to say that's what we're about.

"An offensive player is permitted to block an opponent by contacting him with his head, shoulders, hands, and/or outer surface of the forearm, or with any other part of his body. A blocker may use his arms, or open or closed hands, to contact an opponent on or outside the opponent's frame (the body of an opponent below the neck that is presented to the blocker). If a blocker's arms or hands are outside an opponent's frame, it is a foul if the blocker materially restricts him. The blocker immediately must work to bring his hands inside the opponent's frame, and as the play develops, the blocker is permitted to work for and maintain his position against an opponent, provided that he does not illegally clip or illegally push from behind."

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.

It was a painful reunion yesterday with Trent Dilfer, but it had nothing to do with the Super Bowl-winning quarterback's one-time grudge against the Ravens. Entering the game without four starters and then losing two offensive linemen in one series, the Ravens persevered in an ugly yet satisfying 9-7 victory over the San Francisco 49ers before 67,885 at Monster Park. Injuries continue to take their toll on the Ravens, who were down to three rookie blockers, one healthy tight end and no backup offensive linemen.

Near the end of yesterday's draft luncheon, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome produced the biggest revelation of the day when he said there could be a quarterback that the team would take with the 29th pick of the first round. A few minutes after the news conference concluded, Newsome told a smaller group of reporters: "Nothing I said today will allow you to know what we're going to do at the draft because I said we might take a quarterback at 29." Subterfuge aside, it's more likely the Ravens will take an offensive lineman instead of a quarterback in the first round of next week's draft.

INDIANAPOLIS -- When the Ravens selected guard Chris Chester in the second round of the NFL draft a year ago, the reasoning was a departure from the usual rationale for grabbing a big guy you expect to knock down other big guys. Rather than dwell on size and strength, the Ravens gushed over Chester's athleticism. A converted tight end, the 6-foot-3, 305-pound Chester was singled out for his quickness and agility. And his versatility. He projects as an eventual center. With the Ravens potentially seeking more offensive line help at the NFL scouting combine in anticipation of the April draft, it wouldn't be surprising if they wound up with another multitasking lineman.

Teammates call them "the trailer park," a nickname senior quarterback Brian Hampton said is a nod to the blue-collar image they project and the occasional mess they make in the Navy locker room. And that is pretty much all of the irreverence one will hear regarding the Midshipmen's offensive line, which once again is performing with exacting proficiency as the backbone of the program. Navy's signature is its run-heavy, spread option offense. Through their 5-1 start, the Mids are leading the nation in rushing offense and have produced a variety of playmakers, starting with Hampton and fullback Adam Ballard inside, and slotbacks Reggie Campbell and Shun White outside.
