A few suggestions for the Ravens before the last man leaves the complex and turns out the lights: Keep Adalius Thomas. Apologize to Mike Anderson and Derrick Mason. They were both wronged, in different ways. Draft a speedy running back. If you need 8 yards, don't throw a 5-yard pass. Please stop doing that. I'm picking Colts-Saints in the Super Bowl. I know the Bears will be tough at home, especially if the weather is nasty, but their defense can't handle all the Saints' weapons, and Rex Grossman is ... well ... Rex Grossman.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan made a surprise move Sunday, benching former Ravens backup John Beck and returning to Rex Grossman as the team's starting quarterback in an attempt to spark his struggling offense and end a four-game losing streak. It didn't do the trick. Washington managed to move the ball a little better but still could not score touchdowns and fell, 20-9, to the Dolphins, giving Shanahan the first five-game losing streak of his coaching career and the Redskins their first such streak since 2001.

No. 2 Miami (10-1) vs. No. 7 Florida (10-2) Site: New Orleans When: Tonight, 8 TV: Chs. 2, 7 Line: Miami by 6 Outlook: The Hurricanes need a victory tonight and a Florida State victory against top-ranked Oklahoma to have a chance at sharing the national championship. Miami sophomore QB Ken Dorsey has been impressive. He has thrown for 25 TDs with only five interceptions. The defense is led by LB Dan Morgan. Miami coach Butch Davis, who is expected to sign a contract extension soon after the game, will coach the Hurricanes' defense against Florida.

On five occasions in the Washington Redskins game Sept. 18, Rex Grossman dropped back and spotted his receiver. The ball's trek was interrupted midflight, though, batted down by defensive linemen and never coming close to the intended target. "Nothing I can do about that," Grossman said last week. But coaches know that five batted balls is an abnormally high number, and the Arizona Cardinals seemed to know they could disrupt the Redskins' passing game by simply sticking their hands in the air. Entering tonight's game against the Dallas Cowboys, Grossman has enjoyed a good couple of weeks to open the season.

John Beck was again early to the practice field. Then, when rain interrupted the Washington Redskins' practice Wednesday afternoon, Beck stood outside beneath an overhang, waiting for the weather to clear. Waiting is something to which he has become accustomed. He's 30 years old and hasn't taken an NFL snap since 2007. After losing the preseason quarterback competition to Rex Grossman, the former Ravens backup quarterback will have to wait a bit longer for his opportunity.

The Ravens' quarterback school opened yesterday, with Chris Redman at the head of the class. But he understands the true test will begin in training camp. As he analyzes six hours of film each day this week, Redman realizes that he is the Ravens' quarterback of the moment but not necessarily the future. It was just 12 days ago when he was penciled in to be the backup to Jeff Blake and basically written off as a starter. Now, only after talks broke off with Blake, Redman has been given a chance to regain his starting job in an open competition in training camp against a quarterback to be named.

Oh, the glories of the NFL's flexible schedule. For years, Al Michaels wanted it on Monday nights. He had to change networks and nights, but now he has it. This Sunday night, NBC's Michaels and John Madden get to see the Dallas Cowboys vs. the New Orleans Saints, and Michaels called the matchup "the one most people would want to see" (though one could make an argument for Ravens-Kansas City Chiefs). Fred Gaudelli, producer of NBC Sunday Night Football, went even further. "If you ever looked at a poster game for flexible scheduling, this is it," Gaudelli said in a conference call yesterday.

In the final tuneup of the preseason, the Ravens may have some tinkering to do with their pass defense. The unit surrendered 145 yards through the air to the Washington Redskins in the first half Thursday night and allowed a passing touchdown on an opponent's final possession of the first half for the second consecutive game. Even worse, the Ravens made Rex Grossman , a backup to Donovan McNabb last season, look like an elite quarterback as he connected on eight of 15 passes for 112 yards and a 24-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver Santana Moss with 51 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

MIAMI -- It took 36 years and a tumultuous relocation from Baltimore, but the Colts are on top of the football world again. Like it or not, Baltimore, the Indianapolis Colts reigned in the rain, beating the Chicago Bears, 29-17, in the Super Bowl last night. Behind the patient passing of Peyton Manning, the tough running of their backs and the timely second-half play of their defense, the Colts won their first NFL title since their bitter move to Indianapolis in 1984. The wild and often sloppy Super Bowl - the first played in the rain in the event's 41-year history - crowned Manning as a championship quarterback and made Tony Dungy the first African-American coach to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.

MIAMI-- --Warm weather, exotic parties and disparity in quarterbacks. That's what the Super Bowl has become when the sport's biggest event comes to South Florida. Eight years ago, it was Denver's John Elway vs. Atlanta's Chris Chandler. Twelve years ago, it was San Francisco's Steve Young vs. San Diego's Stan Humphries. Now, it's one that could trump them all: Indianapolis' Peyton Manning vs. Chicago's Rex Grossman. This could rank as the biggest quarterback mismatch in its 41-year history and remains the main reason why the Colts are a seven-point favorite over the Bears today.

Dick Jauron's decision to turn over the Chicago Bears' quarterback job today to veteran Chris Chandler - and not first-round draft pick Rex Grossman - was telling on two counts. First, it says the Bears coach believes Chandler, who's 38 and immobile, gives his team the best chance to beat the Seattle Seahawks, ahead of gimpy Kordell Stewart and the rookie Grossman. Second, it says Jauron can't worry about the Bears' long-term future when his own in Chicago doesn't stretch past December.
