Back by popular demand after an absence of 65 million years, a 40-foot-long Tyrannosaurus rex has appeared this week at the south end of Baltimore's Inner Harbor promenade. Dubbed "Peck's Rex," after the Fort Peck, Mont., region where the fossil skeleton was found, the dinosaur stands in the front window of the addition nearing completion at the Maryland Science Center. Teeth gleaming and jaws agape, the T. rex is poised as if in the middle of a lunge at pedestrians on the promenade below.

After the New York Jets minicamp wrapped up in June, coach Rex Ryan was asked which players stood out to him during the three minicamp practices. Former Maryland cornerback Dexter McDougle was the second player he mentioned. “I think you saw a little bit of why we're so excited about him and optimistic about him,” Ryan told reporters. “He is physical. He's able to press and get both hands on you in press. He'll compete, and I think those are things that we were looking to see and I think we saw today. All of us saw it.” McDougle, the Jets' third-round pick in this year's NFL draft, missed the first two of the Jets' three organized team activities (OTAs)

THE TISSUE SAMPLE Paleontologists were able to extract bone-making collagen from the thighbone of a 68 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex. WE HAVE A MATCH Using the collagen extracted from the T. rex?s thighbone, paleontologists determined a link in the collagen material found in the bone and that of a modern-day chicken. Next time you order fried chicken, consider this: Beneath that crispy skin, you may find a link to the heart of history's most terrifying beast. New evidence unveiled in today's edition of Science puts the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex embarrassingly close - in evolutionary terms - to the modern-day chicken.

They'll always be linked, not just by similar coaching pedigrees and shared experiences, but because of one January 2008 decision that helped shape two franchises for years to come. To John Harbaugh, it was an opportunity of a lifetime. To Rex Ryan, it was a slight he'd never forget. After firing Brian Billick following the 2007 season, the Ravens selected Harbaugh as their next head coach, choosing him over a group of candidates that included Ryan, the team's defensive coordinator.

The bad news is that Tyrannosaurus rex, the biggest, scariest prehistoric monster ever, had a design flaw. The good news is that, movie lore notwithstanding, if you find yourself in a car being chased by one, chances are it won't catch you. An article published in last week's issue of the journal Nature reported that T. rex, the coolest, deadliest dinosaur ever to capture a young boy's heart, was, well ... slow. To a generation of kids whose knowledge of the prehistoric world is based largely on the Jurassic Park movies, this is tantamount to heresy.

Even hundreds of miles apart, twin brothers Rex and Rob Ryan take good-natured shots at one another. They've always been competitive, regardless of whether the competition involved baseball, wrestling or marbles. Rob is in his second year as defensive coordinator of the Oakland Raiders. Rex is in his first season as defensive coordinator of the Ravens. "I wish him the best of luck, and I told him he'll have the second-best defense in the league," Rex said. When told of those comments, Rob replied: "We've been on different sidelines six times, and I've beaten him more times than he's beaten me. Also, remind him that I have two Super Bowl rings and he has only one. The old man has three, and that's going to be tough to beat."

Forget about the Mitsubishi Montero ad and that preposterous Ragu spot. The fact that cable's TNT used "Bang a Gong" during the NBA playoffs. And all the movie soundtrack appearances: Moulin Rouge, The Truman Show, Velvet Goldmine and Billy Elliot, which featured five T. Rex tunes. Even without all that, we're having a T. Rex moment. The English band of the 1970s, led by singer and songwriter Marc Bolan, had exactly one U.S. Top 10 hit ("Bang a Gong" - or "Get It On" as it was known everywhere else)

His name is Z-Rex. He's 65 million years old, measures 25 feet tall and 40 feet long and is the largest male Tyrannosaurus rex fossilized skeleton ever unearthed. And, judging by past auctions, he can be yours for about $8 million. But you'd better act fast. The fossil, which went up for auction Monday on the Web site Millionaire.com, will be available for purchase only until 8 p.m. Feb. 10. Which means that if you want to be the first one on your block to have a real T. rex in your living room (and your dining room, and your kitchen, and your basement)

The newest sculpture at the Johns Hopkins University commands a peaceful spot overlooking the garden at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Located beside the art center, next to the bustle of Charles Street, the statue seems to bridge the worlds of creativity and public affairs that the late Rex Chao found so invigorating. A bronze figure of a violinist, The Spirit of Music depicts a musician poised on the edge of his chair, a broad smile on his face. His expression may suggest the glow of a performance, the inspiration of music.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter seemed prepared for a question today regarding his feelings toward New York Jets coach Rex Ryan's belief that the Orioles should have played an extra game on the road to accommodate the Ravens' proposed home opener on Sept. 5. Because the Orioles already have a scheduled night game on Sept. 5, the Ravens aren't opening at home, which is the tradition for Super Bowl champions. The Ravens will instead will kick off the NFL season that night in Denver.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is never shy about voicing his opinion so perhaps it should come as no surprise that the Ravens former defensive coordinator weighed in on a matter that has nothing to do with him or his current team. In a conference call with reporters following the release of NFL's regular-season schedule, Ryan took issue with the fact that the Ravens, the reigning Super Bowl champions, are opening the season on the road after they couldn't work out a scheduling conflict with the Orioles for the night of Sept.

Ravens Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs behaved for most of his time with the media -- until someone asked him about New York Jets coach Rex Ryan's tattoo. Ryan used to be the Ravens defensive line coach and coordinator. Suggs remains close to Ryan. "I probably got something on my ass that ya'll never see that is probably inappropriate," Suggs said. "Who cares? I think you guys blew it way out of proportion. I don't really think it's a big deal. I think everybody should have a certain amount of privacy, even though they are in the public eye, no matter who they are. Even our president deserves a certain amount of privacy.

Bombastic New York Jets coach and former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan was the talk of the combine last year when he guaranteed that his team was going to win the Super Bowl. Standing in the same room today, about a month and a half after his team endured an 8-8 season and a divided locker room, Ryan was significantly less brash. In fact, he blamed himself for what Ryan called a “terrible” season. “In all seriousness, looking back, obviously it was a huge mistake to make that guarantee,” Ryan said.

I t was 5:07 p.m. Sunday when a stone-faced John Beck trudged through the South Field Tunnel toward the players parking lot outside FedEx Field. He wore a brown wool blazer, jeans, brown leather shoes and a baseball cap as he wheeled a small black carry-on suitcase up the cement ramp. "John, we still love you," a group of fans yelled from behind one barricade outside the parking lot fence. "Hang in there. Don't listen to them. " To the right, just 20 feet away and very much within earshot, were some of Beck's detractors, chanting, "We want Rex!
