In a frenetic era of football where the hurry-up offense tends to be all the rage, the Ravens have adopted more of an old-school approach. The Ravens haven't entirely scrapped the no-huddle offense under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, but it's definitely been reduced to something they do more out of necessity -- it's not a heavy chunk of their base offense. That's in stark contrast to a year ago when former offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell devoted many of his game plans to the no-huddle in an effort to spark a stagnant offense that finished 29th in the NFL last season.

Peter Ginsberg, the attorney for ex-Ravens running back Ray Rice, praised former U.S. District Court Judge Barbara S. Jones, the hearing officer for Rice's appeal of an indefinite NFL suspension. Jones was appointed Thursday by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in consultation with NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith to hear the appeal of Rice. Rice's two-game suspension was increased to an indefinite ban on Sept. 8 after a video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancee in a casino elevator.

After faring well in his first NFL start last week, Ravens left tackle James Hurst acknowledged that Sunday's game against the Colts will provide a different challenge because of the communication issues that traditionally come into play for an offensive line on the road. Hurst, though, takes some comfort in that he'll be quite familiar with his surroundings. The undrafted free agent, who made the team out of training camp and then was elevated into a starting role when Eugene Monroe had knee surgery, grew up in Plainfield, Ind., and has attended “countless” games at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston answers readers' questions on the Ravens' win over the Carolina Panthers and other topics about the team. Sure, Steve Smith was the star of Sunday's win over his former team. But I really liked what I saw from Justin Forsett. Last week it was Lorenzo Taliaferro. How long can the Ravens keep up this running back-by-committee approach? -- Eddie R. The Ravens should keep the running back by committee going for the rest of the season. It is working and they do not have a feature back on the roster.

Regarding yet another article in your paper about the Ray Rice incident, The Sun is like a dog with a bone - it just won't give it up ( "Looking for silver lining in the ugliness of the Rice case," Sept. 27). Does anyone remember that the victim of this violence married the perpetrator? Must the NFL and the Ravens take all of the blame? How about a mention that our daughters should be taught not to slap men or anyone else? Confrontation can cause violence. Not that the punch was deserved.

Although Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe said his arthroscopic knee surgery went well last week, he was noncommittal on when he'll return to practice. Monroe declined to say if he completely tore or partially tore his meniscus and said he has no timetable on when he'll be able to run again. Monroe is expected to miss roughly a month, according to a source. "It just depends," Monroe said. "I'm doing everything I can to get back as soon as it's possible. I just come in and work every day to get healthy.

Jacoby Jones stalked from side-to-side in the end zone, measuring every step while paying no attention to the players lining up in front of him. When the ball sailed off the right foot of Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano, Jones sprung forward, sensing a rare opportunity. The anticipation, however, was short-lived. The kickoff landed about five yards in front of him and bounced over Jones' right shoulder to the back of the end zone for the touchback. It was yet another missed opportunity for Jones, who is having a hard time getting the ball in his hands and securing it when it does come his way. "I'm in a funk right now," an upbeat Jones said Wednesday.

As the lyrics of everyone's favorite baseball anthem suggest, being a sports fan is really all about rooting for the home team. But what exactly does that mean when you live in a new town that is gradually becoming your home? When is it OK to pick up a new hometown team? As the Orioles have defied most odds this season and swept the city into an orange frenzy en route to an American League East title, I've been pondering these questions a lot. And there's one factor that truly complicates things.
