Nearly two weeks into the preseason, Ravens Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said the replacement referees would have little impact on the outcome of games if the Ravens performed well. "We [the players] get paid to make plays and if we do our jobs, then we take the game out of the hands of the officials," Suggs said. "The outcome of a game should never come down to a referee's call. " Amen. The injured Suggs hasn't been able to play this year, but maybe he should talk to his teammates before they play the New England Patriots here Sunday night.

I don't envy John Harbaugh. Even when you're flying high in the NFL, you can never relax in his job. Look at the weird dynamic at work Sunday as the Ravens get set to face the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Here are the Ravens, coming off a heady 44-13 beatdown of the Cincinnati Bengals in the season-opener that's made their new no-huddle offense the talk of the league. But all week long, Harbaugh and his coaches have harped about a letdown against the Eagles.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles have spent many hours this week preparing for the Ravens' no-huddle offense. But they only have to go as far as their own practice field to face one in person. The defense has been getting familiar with the no-huddle since offseason workouts and training camp, as the offense has been simulating that approach. So the Ravens' fast-paced philosophy isn't exactly shocking. “The good thing is that [we've been working on that],” defensive coordinator Juan Castillo said Thursday.

Speculation that Andres Alonso would leave the Baltimore City school CEO job for a new superintendent post has been rampant for years. Whenever an opening for the top job in an urban district appeared, Alonso's name seemed to be mentioned. He has always denied he was searching for a new job. When the Philly job came open, many education insiders insisted that Alonso was a strong contender. The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote today that the school system has announced the name of two finalists, and Alonso isn't one of them.

In a recent column, I wrote about Gen. George Washington's aide-de-camp, Tench Tilghman, Maryland's version of Paul Revere, whose historic ride in October 1781 from Virginia to Philadelphia brought news to the Continental Congress of the British surrender at Yorktown and the end of the Revolutionary War. An email arrived several days later from an old friend and colleague, Mary Corddry, who had been The Baltimore Sun's Eastern Shore correspondent, recalling...

Several readers wrote me about last week's column that told the story of federal Judge Sarah Tilghman Hughes, a Baltimorean who swore in Lyndon B. Johnson as president aboard Air Force One after the assassination of John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. They pointed out that Hughes' Maryland lineage included Tench Tilghman, who, like Hughes, had been at the center of one of history's most momentous events. Tilghman, Revolutionary War aide-de-camp to Gen. George Washington and one of Maryland's most famous patriots, carried the news of the British surrender in 1781 at Yorktown, Va., to the Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia, in a ride that has been compared as being second only to that of Paul Revere.
