The new Rob Burnett is looking like the old Rob Burnett. Just ask Ravens defensive tackle James Jones.Jones, who lined up next to Burnett years ago in Cleveland, watched Burnett blossom into a Pro Bowl defensive end there in 1994. He also watched him go down with a devastating right knee injury as a Raven in October 1996. Based on what he has seen so far in 1998, Jones thinks his old friend's recovery is complete.Burnett certainly has played lately with spring in his step. Through two preseason games -- playing time that amounts to one full game -- he has recorded six tackles and a team-high 2.5 sacks.

The last time the Ravens faced the Cleveland Browns in the third game of the season at M&T Bank Stadium was in 1999, after the Ravens started the season 0-2 with losses at St. Louis and to the Pittsburgh Steelers. But nothing cures a losing streak like the expansion Browns coming to town. It also happened to be the first win of the Brian Billick era, a 17-10 victory Sept. 26. WHAT HAPPENED: : The Ravens' defense picked on - and picked off - rookie quarterback Tim Couch, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1999 NFL draft, and came up with two big plays that led to touchdowns.

Rob Burnett is a successful businessman who is all business on the football field.Off the field, Burnett pursues financial interests with the same aggressiveness he displays getting after NFL quarterbacks. At 28, the Ravens' left defensive end is dabbling in real estate, promotions development, long-distance telephone sales and is the part-owner of a successful bar in New York City's Greenwich Village.The way Burnett sees it, he's just putting his economics degree from Syracuse to good use.That same drive is evident whenever Burnett takes off his business suit and puts on his shoulder pads.

Some Ravens fans took exception to Rex Ryan's comments last week about rookie linebacker-defensive end Paul Kruger's wearing No. 99 this season, but few in the Ravens organization were offended. Those types of wisecracks are what made Ryan endearing to his co-workers and the players over at the Castle. His players loved Ryan, the former Ravens defensive coordinator, because he was an extension from the locker room into the front office. What set him apart from some assistant coaches was his ability to get players to play exceptionally hard for him. We love to throw around the words "team chemistry" in sports, so much in fact that the phrase has become undervalued.

Their rallying cry is derived from a shared past, a history of overcoming skepticism about their abilities. Rob Burnett was considered a liability after his knee surgery. Tony Siragusa was believed to be overweight and one-dimensional. Michael McCrary was pegged as too small to play end. And Sam Adams was labeled an underachiever. Together, these Ravens turned away the doubts and became the NFL's most fearsome front four. On the field, they're brothers in arms. Off it, they're brothers squabbling.

Thumbs up: Running back Terry Allen. He made Ravens fans forget about Jamal Lewis for a night, rushing for a season-best 133 yards and breaking three runs of 16 yards or more. Thumbs down: Long snapper Dale Hellestrae. In his first game with the Ravens, the 17-year veteran played like a rookie. He had at least three poor snaps, one of which nearly led to a Vikings touchdown. Stat of game: 0. Turnovers by the Ravens. The team is 8-1 when quarterback Elvis Grbac throws fewer than two interceptions.

Thumbs up: The defensive tackles are doing a good job of collapsing the pocket. Sam Adams and Kelly Gregg both penetrated into the backfield during full-squad drills. Thumbs down: Duane Starks struggled in one-on-ones against the receivers. Things got so bad on one play that Starks was forced to tackle Travis Taylor to prevent him from catching a potential touchdown pass. Trainer's room: Defensive end Rob Burnett (viral infection) and cornerback James Trapp (shoulder) did not practice.

Nobody should take seriously Rex Ryan's comments about rookie defensive end Paul Kruger wearing No. 99, the jersey of former Ravens standout Michael McCrary. Ryan and all of his former defensive linemen from the 2000 Super Bowl team were very close. In fact, when the Ravens fired head coach Brian Billick, Tony Siragusa, Rob Burnett and Michael McCrary all lobbied owner Steve Bisciotti to make Ryan the next Ravens head coach. I knew Rex Ryan couldn't play the Ravens without some crazy comment.

Food and fisticuffs were the main features at Fight for a Cure. Some 430 boxing fans gathered at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor for cocktails, dinner and seven professional matches -- raising $5,000 for F.O.C.U.S. Foundation, a nonprofit children's service charity established by Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Rob Burnett. The evening's fight card featured bouts in various weight classes, but only one in a separate gender. The fight between IBF Women's Lightweight World Champion Isra Girgrah and challenger Melinda Robinson, not surprisingly, also seemed to generate the most interest.

T Leon Searcy vs. DE Rob BurnettTony Boselli gets the big money and most of the attention at left tackle, but Jacksonville right tackle Leon Searcy fills an equally critical role on the Jaguars' much-respected offensive line.Ravens left defensive end Rob Burnett is not short on respect for Searcy, against whom Burnett has competed since 1993. The way their individual battle plays out today could help determine if the Ravens can beat the Jaguars for the first time in team history.The Burnett-Searcy rivalry goes back to the days of the old Cleveland Browns, who drafted Burnett in the fifth round out of Syracuse in 1990.

Michael McCrary and Rob Burnett remain unconvinced. For a good part of this season, media and fans have showered the current Ravens team with questions about whether it is reminiscent of the 2000 squad that won the Super Bowl . Ravens coach Brian Billick and the players have shied away from making any such comparisons, and McCrary and Burnett - two critical cogs of the 2000 defense - did the same. "I don't think it's fair to anybody but especially them," Burnett, a former defensive end, said of the current team.

The Ravens may not be trash-talking, but they were drawn into some toilet humor yesterday. In this week's Sporting News, it was reported that Ravens coach Brian Billick told his team during a Saturday walk-through at Miami's Pro Player Stadium "to [urinate] on the field to mark your territory." But according to Ravens officials, the reporter received that quote from a team spokesman, and Billick used only the words "mark your territory" in addressing his players. The quote has since become the lead story on ESPN's SportsCenter and the talk of sports radio.

MIAMI -- It was his first playoff experience, and when reflecting on the impact he made, Ravens receiver Travis Taylor deferred to his quarterback. "Elvis [Grbac] just made some great throws all day," Taylor said. While Grbac did have one of his most effective games of the season in leading the Ravens to a 20-3 win over the Miami Dolphins at Pro Player Stadium, and the Ravens definitely had their running game going (grinding out a team playoff-high 226 yards), Taylor was the team's most dangerous weapon, having an impact on all three of his touches.

Jermaine Lewis thought his workload in tomorrow's AFC wild-card game might not include filling in at wide receiver, but the return ace will have another full plate of responsibility against the Miami Dolphins at Pro Player Stadium, because Patrick Johnson will most likely be on the sideline for the 12th straight game. Lewis has seen spot duty at wide receiver in place of Johnson, who missed the last 11 games of the regular season with a fractured left clavicle. The fourth-year pro returned to the game plan this week, but coach Brian Billick said Johnson will probably not be able to play after developing plantar fasciitis in one of his feet Thursday.

With reserve linebacker Shannon Taylor out with a separated shoulder, there will be plenty of adjustments among the Ravens' special teams for Sunday's AFC wild-card game at Miami. The offensive line could also be in for some shuffling if left guard Edwin Mulitalo's calf injury doesn't heal. Veteran defensive end Rob Burnett (calf) and Mulitalo were listed as questionable on the Ravens' injury report yesterday. When a knee ailment caused Mulitalo to miss two games in October, Sammy Williams was entrenched at right guard, and Kipp Vickers filled in for Mulitalo.
