O'Brien now is the special teams coach of the Carolina Panthers, whom the Ravens play Saturday.When both were with the Ravens last season, Thompson was O'Brien's coach on the field."I know Scotty just as well as he knows me," Thompson said. "Believe me, he knows what it's going to take to beat this team. He knows our strengths and weaknesses.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has never hid his respect for the Ravens and some of the organization's top decision markers. So, it was hardly surprising that in his final news conference before Sunday's game, he spent a good part of it showering the Ravens with praise. He saved some of his kindest words for Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome . The two worked together in Cleveland and have maintained a friendship. Belichick called him a “pretty special person, special football person, too. “He's been very complimentary about his comments of what he learned from me, but I think I probably learned more from him than he learned from me,” Belichick said.

The men who run special teams are to coaches what offensive linemen are to players. They only get face time when something goes wrong. "Every play on special teams is a disaster waiting to happen," said Russ Purnell, the Ravens' special teams coach. "You can have a bad snap, somebody can drop a football, a guy can miss a block, there's the risk of miscommunication. It seems like every week you've got to put your finger in another hole in the dike. You fix one, then move over and plug another."

The Ravens' firing of offensive coordinator Jim Fassel on Tuesday might have been a necessary move. But it also was an expensive one. Because it was a firing and not a resignation, the Ravens must pay Fassel $1 million for each of the next two seasons. His contract runs through the 2007 season. If Fassel receives another coaching job, the Ravens would owe him only the difference between his new salary and his existing contract. Unlike players' contracts, the ones signed by coaches are guaranteed.

The roster for the Towson football team includes two kickers -- fifth-year senior Drew Evangelista and senior D.J. Soven -- and both have a place on the squad, according to coach Rob Ambrose. “As it stands today, their roles are still the same,” he said Monday during a conference call. “They're both contributing to our victories and contributing in big ways. It's nice to be able to have both of those talents that you can count on again. D.J.'s got the stronger leg of the two, but Drew has been the picture of consistency in everything that we've asked him to do. So two guys have made a complete kicker for us, and they've filled their roles extremely well.

What is wrong with this town? I know there are tons of people out there in Baltimore who are as angry at what just happened to our Super Bowl team as I am, but where is their voice? The word "fan" is short for "fanatic. " Where are the fanatics who will speak up? I listen to the sports talk shows all the time. I hear caller after caller saying stupid stuff like, "I'm excited about the new guys they're going to bring in. " And the line you always hear. "In Ozzie we trust. " On the dollar bill it says In God we Trust.

John, Jim - or Jack Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune You couldn't go wrong with either Harbaugh. In fact, you probably couldn't go wrong with their father Jack, either, or John and Jim's brother-in-law Tom Crean, the men's basketball coach at Indiana. All Jim has done is make it to the NFL's final four in his first year and the NFL's final two in his second year. He has taken bold gambles, developed quarterbacks and presided over an unpredictable offense. All John has done is make the playoffs in each of his five years as a head coach, and gone 8-4 in the postseason.

PHILADELPHIA -- In the offseason, Dave Toub of the Chicago Bears, Joe Decamillis of the Dallas Cowboys and Brad Seely of the San Francisco 49ers were candidates for head-coaching vacancies in the NFL, and all of them are special teams coordinators. That may not seem like much and none of those coaches got the promotions, but Philadelphia Eagles special teams coordinator Bobby April said Ravens coach John Harbaugh deserves credit for opening doors for special teams coaches. “I think he's made a big mark because over the last five years or before he was hired, no special teams coaches were ever even interviewed,” April said of Harbaugh, a former special teams coordinator with the Eagles.

New Ravens coach John Harbaugh said all the right things during his introductory news conference yesterday, but the most important thing came out sounding like a well-worn cliche rather than a call to arms. "We can't wait to get started," he said during his opening remarks. "We can't wait to go to work." That's good, because there already is plenty on his plate. Here's a look at Job One, Job Two and beyond for the first-time head coach charged with rescuing the Ravens franchise after last season's disappointing 5-11 finish: Job One: Saving not-so-private Ryan Harbaugh is lining up candidates for the new coaching staff -- a process that could take several weeks -- and it will be interesting to see what happens if defensive coordinator Rex Ryan ends up being the second choice for the Atlanta Falcons head coaching job. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said yesterday that he would like to have Ryan back, and from a purely strategic standpoint, why not?
