Ravens cornerbacks Antonio Langham and Donny Brady, who have not enjoyed many Sundays this fall, are aware that they could experience headaches again tomorrow when the Bengals come to town.With the firepower that Cincinnati quarterback Jeff Blake brings, along with receivers Carl Pickens and Darnay Scott, the Bengals make any defensive backfield take note."Blake has done wonders in the league ever since he got the starting job [in 1994]," Langham said. "He can throw the deep ball, and he's got the receivers who can go and get it. You've got to give him respect."

What is the price for being a moody malcontent these days? For Carl Pickens, it was $1.5 million. Pickens, who earned $8 million last year from the Cincinnati Bengals after a protracted holdout, was due to make $3 million with the Bengals this year. Even the big contract didn't make Pickens happy. He annoyed the Bengals by suggesting, among other things, that Bruce Coslet wasn't the right coach for the Bengals. He may have been right about that, but it wasn't the appropriate thing to say after pocketing all that money.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair will have, for a rare time this season, his full arsenal healthy for Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Ravens. Receivers Carl Pickens and Yancey Thigpen have both missed time with an assortment of injuries. Pickens, who signed as a free agent shortly before training camp after parting with the Cincinnati Bengals, has played in just eight games this season; Thigpen has played in 11. Neither Pickens nor Thigpen are on the injury report and both are expected to contribute Sunday.

Carl Pickens is the best receiver nobody knows.He has never played in a playoff game, appeared on "Monday Night Football" only once and hasn't been asked to do the ESPN "Sunday Conversation."What he does is catch passes.He has caught 391 in six years, leaving him 27 shy of surpassing Isaac Curtis and Cris Collinsworth and setting the Cincinnati Bengals' record. He also caught 41 touchdown passes from Jeff Blake from 1994 to 1997, which is tops for any duo in the league in that span.Despite all that, Pickens has played in obscurity on a losing team in a small market.

Tennessee's passing attack can be likened to a game of poker. The Titans added two face cards to their hand late in the season. The Ravens have lost one, but they aren't close to folding. The Ravens invade Adelphia Coliseum tomorrow for an AFC divisional playoff game. The Titans have been bolstered by a first-round bye and the return of wide receivers Carl Pickens and Yancey Thigpen, former Pro Bowlers who ended the regular season coming off the bench. The Ravens, conversely, will be without strong safety Kim Herring, who will miss the game with a bruised ankle he suffered in last Sunday's wild-card win over Denver.
