In an attempt to find some way to get their sluggish running game going while also sticking with the three-wide sets that quarterback Joe Flacco has typically thrived in, the Ravens tried something new in Sunday's 24-18 loss to the Cleveland Browns. For the first time maybe ever, they used the pistol formation. I wrote at length about the pistol before the Ravens played the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl if you want a thorough explanation of the origins of the pistol , but to quickly sum it up, it is like the shotgun formation where Flacco catches a snap, but the running back lines up behind him instead of next to him. By my count, the Ravens used the formation five times against the Browns.

A former professional basketball player pleaded guilty Tuesday in the pistol whipping of his girlfriend's brother after a dispute at a cookout in Arnold. Oliver J. Miller, 41, a former NBA player, pleaded guilty in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court to first-degree assault and carrying a handgun, allegations that stemmed from a family argument at a cookout in April. Deputy State's Attorney Thomas J. Fleckenstein said that Miller followed Jason Worley from the cookout, and was seen whacking Worley in the head and face with a handgun outside Worley's home before driving away.

Back in the late 1950s, when I was in the seventh grade, I brought a deadly weapon to school. One morning, into the pocket of my Catholic school uniform, I slipped a knife. I then said good-bye to my mother and got on the bus for St. Ambrose School in Bridgeport, Conn. Although I knew that bringing the knife to school probably was testing the limits of acceptable behavior, I also knew that owning the knife was perfectly fine. Otherwise, my father would not have given it to me. A few months earlier, the knife had been my Christmas present from him. I remember folding back layers of tissue from an oddly shaped gift that clearly wasn't a pair of mittens or a book, until suddenly, the last layer of tissue gone, there it was - a knife!

NEW ORLEANS - The elusive presence of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick could become a unique challenge for the Ravens' defense Sunday night. Should they fail to contain the 49ers' unpredictable read-option Pistol offense at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, winning the Super Bowl shapes up as a challenging proposition for the Ravens. The Ravens have already been defeated twice this season by athletic quarterbacks, falling to the Philadelphia Eagles' Michael Vick and the Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III. In those losses, the Ravens allowed a combined 906 yards of total offense.

Each day this week, Baltimore Sun reporter and blogger Matt Vensel will break down a key matchup from Sunday's Super Bowl. Today, he looks at the challenge of defending Colin Kaepernick and the pistol offense. In their stunning run to Super Bowl XLVII, the Ravens eliminated a pair of future Hall of Fame quarterbacks and also beat rookie Andrew Luck, whom many feel will blossom into the next Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. But the young quarterback they must shut down on Super Sunday presents a unique challenge because he threatens the entire field after every snap.

Maybe now that the Super Bowl is less than a week away it's time to get some serious answers about The Game. We'll continue to hear about all the other issues again this week. How much has the announced retirement of Ray Lewis lifted the Ravens? Which son will Jack and Jackie cheer for, Jim or John? Has Purple Mania taken over The Big Easy? Here is perhaps the top question: Can the Ravens stop San Francisco and the Pistol offense? “Part of dealing with the offense in the regular season is the lack of preparation,” said Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, the architect of the Ravens' 2000 Super Bowl defense.
