Baltimore County Public Safety officials are crediting a passer-by who alerted a family in the 300 block of Quaker Ridge Road in Timonium of a fire in their house. The fire occurred Friday afternoon, April 13, and Elise Armacost, director of communications for the public safety agency, said a man who was in the area saw smoke and banged on the door. "Two kids were inside and, happily, got out right away," she said. Armacost said the cause of the fire was still under investigation as of April 16. The one-alarm fire caused an estimated $150,000 worth of damage she said.

Shortly after Maryland escaped with a 24-17 win over South Florida on Saturday, Terps coach Randy Edsall stood in front of his team inside the visiting locker room at Raymond James Stadium and was blunt with his offense. “I told them afterward that we were awful offensively,” Edsall said. There were plenty of issues. But one thing is undeniable: The Terps need more from quarterback C.J. Brown as a passer. Brown was just 11 of 24 for 111 yards during Maryland's 52-7 season-opening win over James Madison.

Donovan McNabb, a three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, is under fire in Philadelphia for his complicity in the Eagles' 2-3 start. Jay Fiedler, who has a .702 winning percentage through 47 regular-season starts in the NFL, hears the wolves at his Miami door, despite the Dolphins' 4-1 start. In Chicago and Atlanta this week, Kordell Stewart and Doug Johnson already lost their starting jobs, a byproduct of too few wins and too many mistakes. It's business as usual in the NFL, with one curious twist.

While the Ravens front office contemplates Joe Flacco's agent's insistence that his client should be the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL, Flacco's teammates have a pretty good idea of where Flacco stands with the rest of his peers. “He deserves to get paid,” outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said as a guest on The NFL Network's “NFL Total Access” program Friday night. “Where he scales at, that's between our front office and his agent. But he definitely deserves it. The man has a championship ring and you reward your champion by paying him.” Wide receiver and return specialist Jacoby Jones appeared on the same program and voiced a similar opinion.

ATLANTA -- It is easy to focus on what Steve McNair is not this week. He is not a polished passer for the Tennessee Titans. He is not a terribly accurate passer, even in the short game. He is not the reason the Titans are here, preparing to play the St. Louis Rams tomorrow in Super Bowl XXXIV. It would be easy to focus on what he is not, but it would miss the point of what McNair is and what he brings to the Titans in their miracle 16-3 season. He is the X-factor in their offense. He is a fullback disguised in quarterback's clothing.

The task of ending a three-game losing streak against the undefeated Denver Broncos is only part of the pressure facing the Ravens today at M&T Bank Stadium. The other comes from the Denver defense and its ambush-style pass rush. The revamped Broncos attack from all directions with safeties, linebackers and the NFL's sacks leader. Denver wants to do everything possible to make a quarterback feel uncomfortable. Yet Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco feels surprisingly comfortable. "I would say the most similar defense [to the Broncos]

Based on officiating trends, the Ravens won't have to worry about roughing-the-passer penalties when they play the New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady in the playoffs.The officiating crew that will oversee today's game - which is headed by Gene Steratore - has called three roughing-the-passer penalties in 15 games this season. Only three officiating crews called fewer in the 2009 regular season. Three months ago, it was Ron Winter's crew that flagged the Ravens twice for roughing the passer.

Michael Vick is one of the most dynamic forces in the NFL today, but at the same time he is one of its most perplexing. How to define the Atlanta Falcons' five-year veteran is the dilemma. As a running quarterback, Vick is capable of changing a game with one breathtaking scramble. As a passer, he often misses the mark and generally receives low grades for accuracy. Yet, if you go straight to the bottom line, Vick has won 30 of 46 career starts for the Falcons - including playoffs - with one tie. That's winning two games for every loss.

MIAMI-- --Warm weather, exotic parties and disparity in quarterbacks. That's what the Super Bowl has become when the sport's biggest event comes to South Florida. Eight years ago, it was Denver's John Elway vs. Atlanta's Chris Chandler. Twelve years ago, it was San Francisco's Steve Young vs. San Diego's Stan Humphries. Now, it's one that could trump them all: Indianapolis' Peyton Manning vs. Chicago's Rex Grossman. This could rank as the biggest quarterback mismatch in its 41-year history and remains the main reason why the Colts are a seven-point favorite over the Bears today.

The Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck is one of three rookie quarterbacks in the NFL playoffs this season. Historically, the Ravens have played well against teams with first-year passers leading the offense. Rookie quarterbacks are 2-6 - and winless in the playoffs - against the Ravens since John Harbaugh became their coach before the 2008 season. “I can't tell you any secrets, but we've got a little niche going,” defensive tackle Arthur Jones said. “We definitely have something going that you'll see on Sunday.

With injured Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger watching from the sideline in sweats Sunday, backup Byron Leftwich started against the Ravens, his first start since 2009. Leftwich hit the ground running - literally - on his first drive, running for a 31-yard touchdown to give the Steelers an early 7-0 lead. But he struggled in the air, completing 18 of 39 attempts for 201 yards and one interception as the Ravens beat the Steelers, 13-10, at Heinz Field. Leftwich got a chance to lead the Steelers on a late scoring drive in the game's final possession, but he missed an open Mike Wallace on third down and completed a short pass to Gilreath short of the first-down marker on fourth down.

The Ravens can take heart in knowing that they're not alone in questioning at least one call that contributed to their 15-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. Mike Pereira , the NFL's Vice President of Officiating between 2004 and 2009, said officials were wrong in flagging linebacker Terrell Suggs for roughing the passer. "While referees are instructed to err on the side of safety when it comes to protecting the quarterback, I feel the call was incorrect," said Pereira, who now works for Fox. He added, "Suggs made a form tackle on [Bengals quarterback Carson ]

— Middle linebacker Ray Lewis said two questionable penalties cost the Ravens in a 15-10 loss at the Cincinnati Bengals. Lewis was called for tripping quarterback Carson Palmer late in the third quarter, which led to a field goal and a Cincinnati 9-7 lead. Replays showed that Lewis rolled under Palmer after being blocked into him. Then, after the Ravens regained the lead, linebacker Terrell Suggs was flagged for roughing the passer in the fourth quarter, which led to the game-winning field goal.

Defense ruled in 2000, when the Ravens' Purple Reign took the NFL by storm. But the pendulum could swing back to offense and big-play quarterbacks this easson. Three years after John Elway last played, two years after Dan Marino's last season, there is a new hierarchy of quarterback in the league. The new order is represented by young guns like Peyton Manning, 25, and Daunte Culpepper and Donovan McNabb, both 24. He is a rating, one through 31, of the NFL's starters going into the 2001 season.

Police and passers-by brought the morning rush to a halt in downtown Baltimore on Wednesday to help a mother mallard and her 11 ducklings make their way to the relative safety of the Inner Harbor. "It was an incredible way to start the day," said Daveed Korup, 51. A performing-arts specialist at the Port Discovery children's museum, Korup was walking to get his morning coffee about 8 a.m. when he pitched in to help herd the waterfowl. "I needed something to cheer me up, and there it was."
