Reggie Waddell represents the voice of experience. Nate Bolling represents the voice of all rookies. The Ravens close the preseason on the road tomorrow against the New York Giants, and 19 players have one last shot to extend their NFL careers. With only six spots remaining on the 53-man roster, less than one-third of these players on the bubble will survive. Waddell, a cornerback, is keeping composed after going through the emotional wringer last year. But for Bolling and his 14 fellow rookie teammates hanging on by a thread, life leading up to Sunday's final cutdown won't be as easy.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh woke up Monday and watched the tape from Sunday's game again. It was even more enjoyable than witnessing it from his spot on the sideline. "It was a lot more fun watching the tape … when I already know the outcome," said Harbaugh, a day after the Ravens had one of their most explosive offensive performances in team history and routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17 at Raymond James Stadium. "But any time you see a touchdown, it's fun. It's a joy, it's just a great feeling.

Hard-core Ravens fans and HBO viewers know what Kenny Jackson did on his big night out during training camp. He gave an unequivocal thumbs-up to Planet of the Apes, even if it wasn't the most memorable film he has seen this month. Jackson is the unusual rookie free agent whose quest to join the Super Bowl champions was developed into one of the subplots on Hard Knocks, the HBO chronicle of the Ravens' preseason. He's a chiseled 6 feet 2, 253 pounds, and there are plenty of rough edges to his game.

When the Ravens signed three free agents in the offseason to boost their offense, only the acquisition of veteran receiver Steve Smith seemed to create a buzz around town. After six games, all three additions and center Jeremy Zuttah have had a significant impact, but none greater than Smith. He gave the Ravens two elements they were missing from last season - a go-to receiver who could work the entire field, and a hard-nose veteran with a strong work ethic Smith has 35 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns so far this year.

THE LAST couple of times they made a TV series about this town, wise-cracking detectives were kneeling over fresh, bullet-riddled corpses ("Homicide: Life on the Streets") and hollow-eyed junkies were sticking needles in their arms and joining the walking dead ("The Corner"). Both were riveting shows, but probably not the kind that made folks at the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association high-five each other, murder and drug addiction being somewhat low on the list of things a city likes to trumpet.

While there will be more to say on this subject at the end of the week as the next big game draws near, it's worth taking a few lines here to give a shout out to the home team: Go Ravens! A cast of I-bleed-purple fans has descended upon the sidewalks of Harford County to paint team symbols. And it's hard to go anywhere without noticing just about everyone is wearing something purple after our purple and black birds won their first playoff game, which came in the second round of the postseason.

Filled with the blush of youth, Marshal Yanda took the dare, stepped into the middle of the group and got tasered with a stun gun. Not once, not twice, but three times. And he stayed upright. "I took it for three, four seconds, just stepped out and said, 'Yeah, it hurts a little bit, but it ain't that bad,' " the Ravens guard recalled. "I let them do it to me a couple more times just to make it worth the money." It happened a year ago at the end of training camp. In what passes as humor behind closed doors for a football team, players anted up a $600 payoff for any player willing to take the taser treatment.

PASSING GAME: Quarterback Joe Flacco couldn't get much done against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago as he completed 20 of 32 passes for 164 yards and no touchdowns. Pittsburgh cornerback Ike Taylor held Torrey Smith, the Ravens' top downfield threat, to one 7-yard catch, even though Smith was targeted seven times. The Ravens passing attack is ranked 11th in the NFL, but only one team (the Dallas Cowboys) has held Flacco under 300 passing yards at M&T Bank Stadium this season.

For play callers like the Ravens' Gary Kubiak, achieving offensive balance is an elusive pursuit, a challenging and often frustrating endeavor that prompts sleepless nights and almost constant second-guessing. When Kubiak spoke to reporters on Thursday, the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts four days earlier was still fresh on his mind, and the questions about why his offense ran the ball just 15 times in the game seemed as pertinent as ever. "Last weekend, it's the least amount of plays we've run in a game, the least amount of time we've been on the field.

The Ravens survived an emergency situation at left guard when starter Kelechi Osemele was ruled out shortly before kickoff after testing out his bruised, hyperextended right knee during warmups. Osemele looked immobile while trying to do drills in the end zone, noticeably favoring his knee and unable to plant and change direction enough to convince the coaching staff and trainers to play him. So, the Ravens started rookie fifth-round draft pick John Urschel in place of Osemele after initially announcing that backup center Gino Gradkowski would start at left guard.

For Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah, it was a strange feeling to return to Tampa for the first time since being traded to the Ravens in March in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Zuttah had played and started for the Buccaneers for six years before the offseason transaction. “There was a time when I was bitter,” said Zuttah, who was signed to a five-year, $18 million contract extension after the trade. “Once I got to Baltimore, that was out the window. I'm just happy to be a part of this organization.” On Sunday, Zuttah had to adjust to lining up on the opponents' sideline and getting dressed in the visitors' locker room.

TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

TAMPA, FLA. - Inside the locker room late Sunday afternoon, Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee had a blunt take on the defense's rough treatment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. “He's going to be pretty sore,” McPhee said while smiling at his handiwork, which included one sack. During the Ravens' 48-17 win at Raymond James Stadium, the defense sacked Glennon a season-high five times and hit him 15 times. The amount of sacks equaled their previous season total entering Sunday's game.
