It would seemingly be the perfect way for a distinguished football career to end: Ed Reed returning to his home state of Louisiana and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for the first time. Reed, however, has never been conventional on or off the field. “I'll be playing next year if that's what you are all asking, so next question,” Reed said. As his long-time teammate Ray Lewis prepares for his final game on Feb.3 in Super Bowl XLVII against the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Reed announced his intention Thursday to play beyond this season.

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.

Since June 14, Joe Flacco has not only been a husband, a son and the starting quarterback for the Ravens. He's also been a father. On that day, Flacco and his wife, Dana, welcomed Stephen Vincent Flacco, and Joe Flacco's world hasn't been the same since. “It's just exciting for me,” said Flacco, who spoke at length about his new role Thursday after the Ravens' first practice of training camp at the team's complex in Owings Mills. “I've always wanted to have a family of my own.

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.
