Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, I chatted with Jerry McDonald, who covers the 49ers and Raiders for The Bay Area Newspaper Group. MV: How was the midseason quarterback change received at first in the 49ers locker room, and now what are teammates saying about Colin Kaepernick now that he's running and throwing all over defenses? JM: Skepticism was limited because Alex Smith missed his first game with a concussion and it was immediately evident that Kaepernick added a spark that turned a plodding offense into an explosive one. Kaepernick's physicality, work ethic and reluctance to play the star impressed his teammates.

The San Francisco 49ers will stay in the Baltimore area for several days following their Aug. 7 preseason matchup against the Ravens to participate in joint practices with the team that beat them in Super Bowl XLVII. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said his team will return the favor, possibly as early as next year's training camp. "We will go back to San Francisco at some point in time -- probably next year," Harbaugh said. "We're looking forward to it. " The Ravens have never participated in joint practices with any team, although they did have scrimmages with the Washington Redskins.

Here is what other news outlets are saying about the Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and Super Bowl XLVII today. --- Don Banks of Sports Illustrated writes that legendary linebacker Ray Lewis ended his career on top . “You don't have to buy everything that Ray Lewis is selling -- and plenty of people don't, me included -- to enjoy the storybook ending that was his 'last ride,'” Banks wrote. “Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens are champions of the NFL again, 12 years after their first Super Bowl ring was earned, and he will forever be remembered for having gone out on top, in a fashion so few get to experience.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Brandon Lloyd came to the Washington Redskins from the San Francisco 49ers last spring with a reputation for being an enigma on and off the field. Was he the athletic receiver who could make spectacular plays look routine, or the kind of player who disappeared against tight defenses, particularly against teams playing a cover-2?

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman hit the free agency market after declining a three-year offer to remain with the AFC East franchise. He has taken one visit with the San Francisco 49ers. Sources say the Ravens have definite interest in Edelman. However, nothing has developed yet into a visit or contract offer. Until Tuesday, Edelman was regarded as a strong candidate to remain with the Patriots. The Ravens are concentrating on trying to sign veteran wide receiver Steve Smith, but also have a high opinion of Edelman and Emmanuel Sanders.

Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady. It used to be the NFL's ultimate matchup because it featured the modern era's top quarterbacks. But it doesn't have the same pizzazz anymore. In fact, more attention should be given to the NFC championship game because it's old school. It's the San Francisco 49ers at the Seattle Seahawks, two teams with strong running games and really good defenses. Now that's football. Some fans love this new-age stuff, the NFL's version of touch, powder-puff football in which defense isn't played.

The local uproar surrounding Anquan Boldin's performance against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday was both predictable and understandable. However, I'm not sure the attention is in the right place. The Ravens clearly used the money that they saved by trading Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers ($6 million) to rebuild their defense, which was a necessity. Elvis Dumervil certainly would not be in Baltimore if Boldin stayed, and Daryl Smith and Chris Canty may not be either.

If you're curious as to what color New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony's blood is, it's black and purple.

"Now is the time... " -- Martin Luther King, Aug. 28, 1963 Brendon Ayanbadejo is wrong. It is painful to say that. Mr. Ayanbadejo's heart is in a good place, and the advice he gave recently on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" was practical and well intentioned. But mainly, yes, it was wrong. Here's the back story. It seems NFL prospect Nick Kasa recently told ESPN Radio that he was asked in an interview with a team he won't specify whether he is married, if he has a girlfriend and whether he likes girls.

San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis called Terrell Suggs a “[expletive] loser” on his Twitter feed today after he took offense to comments made by the Ravens linebacker on a San Francisco-based radio show. Making an appearance on KNBR 680-AM largely to promote “The Coalition,” a movie he co-wrote, Suggs was asked about comments made by teammate Cary Williams following the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3. Williams, a starting cornerback who was involved in a post-whistle scrum during the Super Bowl that led to him pushing a game official, called the 49ers “fake tough guys” and “pretenders” in the locker room after the game.

A reeling Ravens' defense managed to survive the electrifying comeback attempt led by dynamic San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick despite being pushed to the brink of exhaustion by his high-octane style. Even with Kaepernick running the Pistol offense almost perfectly following a rough first half, the AFC champions escaped with a dramatic 34-31 Super Bowl victory Sunday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. How did they get the job done? Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti attributed it to having "resilience, like all great teams.
