IT HAS BEEN more than two days since the New England Patriots won their third NFL title in four years, and I can't help thinking Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid is sitting in his den with that play card in front of his face, comfortable that there still is plenty of time left on the clock. Hopefully, he's not wearing tights. The Eagles fell short in the Super Bowl for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was that they were playing the greatest team of this generation, but the enduring memory for a lot of frustrated Eagles fans will be the seemingly leisurely drive in the final minutes that brought them back to within a field goal but burned so much time that there was little realistic hope of completing a 10-point comeback The Philadelphia Daily News summed it up with this screaming post-mortem headline yesterday: "WHAT'S THE RUSH?"

It shouldn't come as a shock that the top three leading scorers for the Mount St. Mary's men's basketball team (4-9) are all seniors in the guard trio of Julian Norfleet, Rashad Whack and Sam Prescott. But the Mountaineers' hopes for success this season could center on the maturation of their freshmen and sophomores. Freshman forward Will Miller and freshman shooting guard Byron Ashe rank fourth and fifth in scoring with 6.5 and 6.0 point averages, respectively. Sophomores Taylor Danaher and Gregory Graves have replaced Kristijan Krajina in the starting lineup after the senior center tore an anterior cruciate ligament in his knee against Bucknell on Nov. 26. And freshman point guard Khalid Nwandu has moved into the starting lineup in the last four games.

Maybe you think Ozzie Newsome has lost his mind this time. Now it's hard-hitting Bernard Pollard who's been shown the door by the Ravens' general manager, joining the mini-parade of Anquan Boldin, Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe as salary-cap casualties. I know, I know . . . since the start of free agency, it's felt like "Ozzie Gone Wild" over at the Castle as the re-making of the Super Bowl champions gets underway. But Ravens fans need to chill. Before the mass freak-out gets out of control, let's remember that it's still early in free agency.

Q: Our 6-month-old son is active and eager to explore. He seems frustrated that he can't get around on his own. He often cries for toys that are out of reach. We'd like to put him in a walker, but our pediatrician says not to. What do you think? Wouldn't he learn more and end up smarter?A: Walkers are dangerous. Babies ride them down stairs or off porches. They tip them over into water or onto fireplaces or furnace grates. Each year, 35,000 children are brought to emergency departments with walker-related injuries, and 7,000 of those injuries are serious.

In the days and weeks leading up to the induction ceremony, both Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn spent plenty of time talking about the state of their nerves. While Ripken mentioned the speech and maintaining his composure, there was an unexpected obstacle that almost got him yesterday: holding his Hall of Fame plaque. "I did think it was really heavy. ... That was my first feeling," he said. "You don't expect that. I thought I could drop it on my toe, it could be pretty embarrassing. There was a brief moment of that."

What went right -- After a 51-yard field goal by Matt Stover pulled the Ravens within 12-6 early in the fourth quarter, they got the ball back on a Peyton Manning interception with a chance to go ahead. Ed Reed's second pickoff set up the Ravens at their 39 with 12 minutes left. What went wrong -- The Ravens moved across midfield, but Steve McNair's third-and-nine pass for Demetrius Williams was intercepted by Nick Harper to snuff that go-ahead opportunity. The Ravens stopped the Colts again and got the ball back with 8:43 to play, but went three-and-out with another poor offensive series.

It's a question Ravens coach John Harbaugh gets asked a lot these days: with the NFL lockout nearly three months old, how are the Ravens preparing for the 2011 season? Harbaugh admits his staff has been doing a lot of sitting around, simply because there haven't been any minicamps this offseason. But they've studied a lot of film. And they've studied some more. And more. And more … So much, in fact, that Harbaugh has tweaked a few of his assistants' nerves. The Ravens have even studied film of themselves studying film.

New infield acquisition Julio Lugo arrived in the Orioles clubhouse Friday and made it clear that he expects to play. Orioles manager Dave Trembley "told me I'm going to play more," Lugo said. "I'm just going to come here and do my best. I like to play. I'm fine. I'm happy they found a way to do it, and I'm happy that I'm here." The Orioles added Lugo on Thursday, acquiring the veteran utility infielder from the St. Louis Cardinals for a player to be named or cash. The impetus of the move was to upgrade at the utility-infield spot and give the club some insurance for second baseman Brian Roberts, who is still ailing with a herniated disk in his back.

Maybe Mother Nature didn't want Matt Wieters to get a big head. The stage was set for him to make his major league debut Friday in front of a big, happy crowd on a combined $6 college special and Fireworks Night at Camden Yards. The Orioles had the whole thing planned to perfection, right down to the four-game winning streak that perked up the fan base in advance of the arrival of the team's most celebrated minor league prospect in a generation. The heavens, however, couldn't wait. The clouds opened late Friday afternoon and drenched the ballpark, forcing the cancellation of batting practice, delaying the start of the game and - for a while - dampening the big walk-up crowd the club was anticipating after making the surprise announcement Tuesday night that Wieters was headed here from Triple-A Norfolk to join a team that has gotten younger just about every day this week.

Hey, all you talented classical musicians out there in the Baltimore area: Now is the time to let the ego run wild and nominate yourself for a Baker Artist Award. This competition takes place entirely online, with artists uploading video of their work. A jury will determine winners of the Mary Sawyers Baker Prize of $20,000 (up to three winners); online voting will determine a Baltimore's Choice Award ($5,000). Visual artists have jumped into the process, but "musicians are not being as responsive," says Nancy Haragan, executive director of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, a partner in the project.

A new congressional study on relocating military jobs and strategic communications and surveillance operations from Fort Monmouth, N.J., to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Harford County identifies a number of challenges the Army faces in completing the move. But the Pentagon should not be deterred. It has accomplished similarly difficult relocations in the past, and Maryland should be prepared to help bring about a smooth transition. In its report this week, the Government Accountability Office warned that the Army may not be able to fill technical and electronics jobs fast enough to meet the need and may have to hire less-experienced scientists and engineers than those now working in New Jersey.

I used to feel confident that we had plenty of time to get off this planet before it burned up. You may know, or perhaps have forgotten, that in 5 billion years the sun will have become a red giant whose circumference will encompass the orbit of Mars. But Chris Impey, an astronomer at the University of Arizona, warns that only a billion years from now the swelling sun "will boil away the oceans." The Bush administration will surely be unimpressed, but it behooves the rest of us to plan ahead.

Nashville, Tenn. -- The Orioles' front office contingent left here yesterday with an oft-injured, journeyman catcher and a Rule 5 minor league reliever in its winter meeting shopping cart. And nothing else. It could have been worse. The Orioles could have taken home one of those tacky "Grand Old Opry" plastic boots and a garish "Country Christmas" T-shirt. Actually, it could have been much worse. The Orioles could have acquired a bunch of expensive, mediocre veterans as they have in the past.
