The Ravens are a bit conflicted whenever the topic of drafting a cornerback is broached. On one hand, the team's front office and coaching staff is content with its current corps: starters Chris McAlister and Samari Rolle, nickel back Corey Ivy and reserves Evan Oglesby, Ronnie Prude, Derrick Martin and David Pittman. On the other hand, this year's crop of cornerbacks is considered deep, with as many as seven players labeled as potential first-round picks Saturday. That's why Eric DeCosta found himself arguing both sides after the team's draft luncheon Tuesday.

QUARTERBACK DERBY All three quarterbacks threw interceptions yesterday, but rookie Joe Flacco struggled the most. He threw four interceptions in the morning and afternoon sessions, and two (by cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Ronnie Prude) would have been returned for touchdowns. Troy Smith had a pass to rookie Justin Harper on a slant pattern picked off and taken to the end zone by cornerback Chris McAlister, and Smith also botched a snap from center. Kyle Boller was slightly more consistent, finding receivers underneath for modest gains.

The secondary may become a primary concern for the Ravens. For the second consecutive week, what was unfolding as a convincing victory turned into a seat-gripping thriller as the Ravens held off the Arizona Cardinals, 26-23, at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday. And much like last week's 20-13 win against the New York Jets, it was the Ravens' secondary that appeared to unravel in the fourth quarter. "It got pretty hairy, as you all can see, out there," said cornerback Corey Ivy, who made his first start since Dec. 11, 2005, replacing Samari Rolle (undisclosed illness)

With both first-string cornerbacks likely to be sidelined today, David Pittman has a chance to change the course of his Ravens career. A third-round pick in 2006, Pittman has begun to wear out the patience of the coaching staff with his slow progress at cornerback. The final three games of this season could determine whether he has a future with the team. "We're going to have a couple more weeks to give him an opportunity to see if he can live up to the hope that we had for him," coach Brian Billick said.

At some point a few months ago - Ronnie Prude doesn't remember exactly when - he discovered that he was no longer at LSU and that he was no longer the Big Man on Campus. That realization stung. A lot. Prude, who was signed by the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of LSU, found himself fifth on the depth chart behind cornerbacks Chris McAlister, Samari Rolle, Corey Ivy and Evan Oglesby. It was an unfamiliar position. "Coming up in college, I always wanted to be the guy that people could count on to go out and make plays," Prude said.

With third-down running back Musa Smith doubtful for Sunday's game with a neck injury, Mike Anderson could get his most action of the season. Anderson, who has 29 carries and five catches this season, is on pace for the fewest touches in his seven-year career. The Denver Broncos' leading rusher last season, he was expected to have more of an impact for the Ravens after signing a four-year, $8 million contract (including a $2 million signing bonus) in March. "Most of the guys that play in the league can't dictate their situations and opportunities," Anderson said.

The Ravens' cornerbacks grew before Corey Ivy's very eyes. In a 21-7 loss yesterday to the Cincinnati Bengals that offered little to cheer about, the defense may have found a glimmer of hope in the performance of a cornerback corps lacking in experience but brimming with earnestness. Derrick Martin (22 years old), Ronnie Prude (25) and Willie Gaston (24) received significant action, and matched up against a Pro Bowl quarterback in Carson Palmer and a dangerous receiving corps in Chad Johnson, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Chris Henry.

From Priest Holmes to Bart Scott to Maake Kemoeatu, the Ravens have always prided themselves on finding the best undrafted college players. But this year, the challenge seemed even steeper than before. Signing the top undrafted players became more difficult because other teams were spending more money because of the increased salary cap and the Ravens had fewer opportunities to sell. "It seemed like everyone [on the Ravens] was fighting the fight this year," said Joe Hortiz, a national scout for the team.

In a week when Brian Billick compared the New Orleans Saints to Mother Teresa, the Ravens coach turned out to be the miracle worker. With Billick bringing new life to a moribund offense along with an air of unpredictability in his first game as the team's play-caller, the Ravens made their most authoritative statement of the season in hammering the Saints, 35-22, yesterday at a rambunctious Superdome. At one moment, the Ravens were a power running team, handing the ball off to an inspired Jamal Lewis with some old I-formation plays.

Only days after Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson talked about hitting Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in the mouth, the Ravens showed they could take their divisional rival's best shot and survive. After ambushing the Bengals for two touchdowns in the first five minutes of the game, the Ravens withstood a late comeback for a 26-20 win yesterday at M&T Bank Stadium, a critical AFC North victory that extended their lead to two games over the self-destructing Bengals. This emotional showdown kept the record crowd of 70,792 on the edge of their seats in the second half, from a questionable coaching decision by Brian Billick to a near interception return for a touchdown by the Bengals to a field goal by Matt Stover hitting the upright before falling over the crossbar.
