PITTSBURGH -- It's a story as old as Andy Messersmith. Star meets town. Town loves star. Star leaves town. Star comes back to town, but in a different uniform.Another version of that decades-old free-agent saga was played out at Three Rivers Stadium last night, with Barry Bonds playing the part of the prodigal star and the Steel City assuming the role of jilted lover.Last night's dramatics were destined to take place as soon as Bonds signed a $43.75 million, six-year deal with the San Francisco Giants during the off-season and, in the process, left the Pirates behind.

The Ravens played so poorly that it was almost comical. Backup quarterback Eric Zeier threw a pass that hit an official in the head. The team's running back of the future, Jay Graham, was crushed by the kicker on a return in which he fumbled twice. Then there were numerous dropped passes. The Ravens were penalized 11 times for 73 yards and quarterback Vinny Testaverde, already fighting the flu, bruised his ribs on the team's third play from scrimmage, but he stayed around long enough to throw three interceptions in the first quarter.

IRVING, Texas - For all those conspiracy theorists who believe the NFL is out to get Baltimore - especially after Sunday's controversial finish - tonight won't change your mind. As the Ravens make their final push toward the playoffs, they must overcome another roadblock laid down by the league. The Ravens (9-5) play the Dallas Cowboys (9-5) in the final game scheduled at Texas Stadium, a situation in which it is usually tough to pull out a victory. Since the beginning of the 1996 season, teams are 11-2 in the last regular-season games at their old stadiums before relocating to new ones.

The Ravens may have gotten an answer to their "Why Not Us?" motto. The Pittsburgh Steelers had 397 yards of total offense, and averaged 4.9 yards per carry. They had a nearly 11-minute advantage in time of possession, converted on seven of 11 third-down situations, punted only twice and converted two turnovers into touchdowns. Final score: Steelers 31, Ravens 17, before a crowd of 57,241 at Three Rivers Stadium yesterday. If the road to the AFC championship has to go through Pittsburgh, then the Ravens may have to take another route.

The Ravens don't have a quarterback controversy, they have a quarterback problem. They have one of the NFL's highest-paid offensive lines, yet one of the most unproductive. They've tried countless offensive formations, yet nothing works.On a day when the defending AFC Central-champion Pittsburgh Steelers were missing five starters and were booed constantly by the crowd of 58,620 at Three Rivers Stadium, the Ravens turned in another dismal offensive display and lost, 16-6. If you missed the game, break out the tape of the Ravens' 12-8 loss to Tennessee last week.

Scouting report Ravens rushing vs. Steelers run defense STEELERS The Ravens' running game was inconsistent in the preseason, averaging 3.8 yards a carry and 104.5 a game. That included a couple of long quarterback scrambles, however. RB Priest Holmes looked good in his limited time. How the Ravens use Jamal Lewis is still in question. Cohesiveness could be an issue on the right side, where new guard Mike Flynn and tackle Harry Swayne played in only two games. The Steelers were tough against the run in five preseason games, giving up 3.1 an attempt and 83.8 a game.

Quote: "I've had people tell me they've never seen Anaheim play a baseball game, and their scores are never in the paper the next day, and they're on `SportsCenter' when I'm in bed. I think you get a little more exposure here, especially with Mark [McGwire] here." - Jim Edmunds, enjoying life and baseball in St. Louis It's a fact: Kevin Young's 40 steals are the most for a Cubs player since 1985. Who's hot: Arizona is 7-1 in Three Rivers Stadium since joining the NL in 1998. Who's not: The Marlins' Preston Wilson leads the majors with 146 strikeouts.
