I am so angry right now, I should get a two-game suspension. The National Football League and the Baltimore Ravens have sacrificed running back Ray Rice on the altar of their public image. His firing was cynical and expedient and has absolutely nothing to do with domestic abuse. As soon as video from inside the casino elevator was made public - confirming what we already knew from the police report, that Rice hit his then-fiancee hard enough to knock her unconscious - the team terminated his contract.

Now that the NFL and the NFL Players Association have implemented human growth hormone testing as part of a revised performance-enhancing drug policy, Ravens veteran defensive end Chris Canty is hoping that ensures a level playing field.

The changes include a suspension of four games without pay for a first violation, a 10-game suspension without pay for a second violation and a minimum two-year ban for a third violation.

In an organization that relies heavily on the acceptable behavior of its employees to support its mission, there are generally accepted ways to deal with a crisis. First, if an employee is found to be in violation of the "acceptable behavior," deal with it immediately. The Ravens were told by the NFL that Ray Rice was suspended without pay for two games. Last Monday, after the video tape of Mr. Rice hitting his wife in an elevator became public, the Ravens terminated his contract.

Those events followed a graphic video surfacing in which Rice punched his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, whom he later married and now has his last name. The couple has been in counseling since the incident in February, which occurred at Revel Casino, which has since closed, in Atlantic City, N.J. The Baltimore Sun has verified that the following unabridged message from her official Instagram account is from Janay Rice and was intended to be released publicly: "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote.

The Ravens are standing by Ray Rice no longer. After months of publicly supporting the much-maligned running back, the Ravens terminated Rice's contract Monday afternoon on the same day video surfaced of him striking his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J. casino elevator in February. The decision came after a morning meeting with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, team president Dick Cass, general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh. “It was not a long meeting and we came to the decision that we came to, to release Ray,” Harbaugh said at a Monday evening news conference following the team's walk-through practice.

John Harbaugh walked toward the back of the bench to exhort the fans, wagged four fingers in the air to signal the start of the final quarter and welcomed big defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to the sideline with a flying chest bump that left the Ravens' head coach falling backward.   Despite one of the most trying weeks in franchise history, Harbaugh told general manager Ozzie Newsome on Wednesday that he sensed his team was ready to play well and was he ever prophetic. The Ravens broke the trend of close games against their biggest rival by dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-6, in front of an announced 71,181 at M&T Bank Stadium and a prime-time television audience.

Every Wednesday, I'll serve up five stats you should know heading into that week's Ravens game. This week's stats, pertaining to Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, are based on just two games and could be misleading, but either way, here they are. 5.09 - Through two games, the Ravens' running backs are averaging 5.09 yards per carry. Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett padded those stats late in Thursday's win over the Steelers, but a number around two yards per carry better than last year's team rate has to be just what the Ravens signed up for when they brought in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

The Maryland Republican Party admitted Wednesday that it used a trademarked logo of the Baltimore Ravens to raise funds without seeking the team's permission. The party's executive director said it had been an error on his part. The unauthorized use of the purple-and-black logo and Ravens shield came as the party publicized a fundraiser at a private home in Edgewater. In emails, on Facebook and on the party Web page, the state GOP used the logo to invite people to "an afternoon of Ravens football and Republican Party politics" during Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

A day after running back Ray Rice's contract was terminated, Ravens coach John Harbaugh reaffirmed his belief in Bernard Pierce, who didn't touch the ball after fumbling on his sixth carry in Sunday's season opener.

Bernard is still on his way to becoming, I would say, a very good player, and I've been saying that all along.

Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson looks back at the Ravens' game each week and looks ahead to their next opponent. GAME PLAN: Instead of airing it out and employing a no-huddle offense the way they did frequently in ineffective fashion during a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens scrapped the hurry-up approach and adopted a balanced, gritty approach. There were just a dozen shotgun snaps out of 65 offensive plays, zero no-huddle plays. They ran the football downhill, gaining 157 rushing yards on 36 runs to wear out a visibly tired Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

When the Ravens travel to play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, there will be several familiar faces on the opposing sideline. That includes Browns first-year head coach Mike Pettine, a former Ravens outside linebackers coach under John Harbaugh who got his start with the organization breaking down games in the video department for former Ravens coach Brian Billick. A former standout high school football coach in Pennsylvania, Pettine became a defensive coordinator with the New York Jets when he left the Ravens' staff to work under Rex Ryan and then with the Buffalo Bills prior to landing the Browns' job after last season.
