An Annapolis teenager who suffered a gunshot wound to the foot in January had previously attempted to shoot his alleged assailant but missed, police said. And despite not hitting his target, he currently faces more serious charges than the other accused gunman. Devonte Simms, 19, was charged Friday with attempted murder, assault and weapons offenses, among other counts. He is being held in jail without bond. Craig Ireland, 19, meanwhile, only faces assault and weapons charges.

Maybe it's the holiday season, but some Ravens fans and readers seemed inspired in their comments on the CBS telecast of the Ravens embarrassing loss to the New England Patriots Sunday. Here's one from Rick Forno. I asked if I could use his full name because I enjoyed it so much and wanted to make sure he got credit for it. Hi David - Just to add to your CBS rantage, which I agree with completely, btw...... 1) CBS wardrobe folks still living in 2002, apparently.  American flag lapel pins everywhere?

With the Ravens playing such a sloppy, stupid game Sunday, it's not fair to totally blame CBS for a lackluster telecast. So, I won't. Except for one thing: I wish play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz and analyst Phil Simms would have had the independence and integrity to call out the officiating team loudly and clearly for one of the worst performances I have ever seen. Yes, Simms and Nantz did disagree with some calls and did predict others would be overturned as they watched the replays.

Like I said in my review of Sunday's telecast, you ultimately have to praise any broadcasters who can maintain their focus for more than five hours as CBS Sports did Sunday in telecasting the Ravens loss to the Bears. Five hours, a long delay and much weird and dangerous weather of which to keep viewers appraised. While some fans found Phil Simms and Jim Nantz a welcome upgrade in the booth, others had their issues with the TV afternoon they spent with CBS. This email from Mark hit the Z on TV inbox before halftime Sunday.

Any broadcasters of a live TV event who can hold their concentration for five hours deserve high praise - especially when they are dealing with unpredictable and dangerous conditions. The CBS Sports crew did that Sunday with its weather-delayed telecast of the Ravens 23-20 loss to the Chicago Bears, providing play-by-play coverage and analysis from Jim Nantz and Phil Simms that was almost as sharp and focused at the end of overtime as it was when the game started more than five hours earlier.

John E. "Jack" Simms, a retired executive vice president whose career at American Credit Indemnity Co. spanned more than four decades, died Friday from complications of Alzheimer's disease at Stella Maris Hospice. He was 88. The son of a Methodist minister and a homemaker, John Elliott Simms was born in Surry, Va. He was raised in Delaware, Virginia and St. Mary's County, Md., where he graduated in 1940 from Margaret Brent High School in Helen. He moved to Baltimore and went to work as a fireman for the old Pennsylvania Railroad before enlisting in the Army Air Forces.

Joseph "Zastrow" Simms, known as a colorful and compassionate community activist who helped bridge racial and social gaps in Annapolis from as far back as the turbulent 1960s, died Monday. Simms' niece Stacey Gaskin said Simms died of congestive heart failure, one month shy of his 79th birthday. He had been in home hospice care at her Arnold residence, she said. Simms grew up in Annapolis in the 1930s and 1940s, when the state capital was separated along racial lines, but became popular throughout the city because of his athletic prowess at Bates High School.

CBS Super Bowl broadcasters Jim Nantz and Phil Simms say they see a lot more than just Ray Lewis when they look at the Baltimore Ravens. And come Sunday, the conversation they do have about Lewis in the biggest broadcast booth in popular culture is going to be primarily about his play on the field and inspirational power in the locker room - not what happened in Atlanta. "I would just say, Ravens?" Nantz said Tuesday when asked for his sense of the team's image during a teleconference.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice, which was interpreted as a boost in the arm for the Steelers who have dropped two straight games without their franchise quarterback. But a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review described Roethlisberger's workout as very brief, his light throwing ending even before some of his teammates reached the practice field. Does this mean that Pittsburgh will err on the side of caution and shelve Roethlisberger for at least another week to give his dislocated ribs and sprained right throwing shoulder more time to heal?

It's a daunting feat to try and cover Bob Dylan, but when Creative Alliance rocks their fourth Night of 1000 Dylans on Friday, Brian Simms will be handling the keyboard and accordion responsibilities. "I began picking out songs from the radio on a Schroeder piano at age 5," Simms said. "My parents [later] thought it a sound investment to purchase a life-size one. " Glenelg native and Catonsville resident Simms has recorded and toured with hometown heroes Disappear Fear in the '90s and currently plays in eight bands, including Junkyard Saints.
