The coaching fraternity can be a tight one, especially among those on the NFL level. But that didn't prevent former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy from lobbing a volley at Ravens coach John Harbaugh. Dungy, now an analyst on NBC's “Football Night in America,” questioned Harbaugh's decision to pull many of his starters early in Sunday's eventual 23-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Had the Ravens (10-6) won, they might have had a chance to vault from the No. 4 seed to the No. 3 spot and tangle with Cincinnati (10-6)

After weeks of questioning the Ravens' credentials as a Super Bowl contender, former Indianapolis Colts coach and current NBC analyst Tony Dungy positioned himself for a seat on the Ravens bandwagon. Appearing on the network's “Football Night in America” program Sunday night, Dungy was asked to provide his thoughts on the best team in the AFC, and his answer involved the top-seeded New England Patriots - but for not the reason one might expect. “Their defense scares me,” Dungy said of the Patriots.

There was an assumption during Jim Caldwell's eight years as quarterbacks coach of the Indianapolis Colts that he didn't have much to do. By the time Caldwell arrived for the 2002 season, Peyton Manning was four years into what is now sure to be a Hall of Fame career and his numbers were already impressive for a young NFL quarterback. But longtime Colts coach Tony Dungy, who had brought Caldwell with him to Indianapolis after one season in Tampa Bay, said Caldwell deserves a great deal of credit for Manning becoming one of the elite quarterbacks in NFL history.

With a 7-3 record after Sunday's 31-24 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens have legitimately thrown their hats into the circle in contention to be crowned the best team in the AFC. The Ravens have the same record as the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Houston Texans, but have beaten both of those teams, including the Steelers twice. The Ravens are one game better than the 6-3 New England Patriots in the win column. On NBC's “Football Night in America” program Sunday night, former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy and former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison debated the merits of the Ravens' candidacy for that title.

The Ravens' 24-10 rout of the Cleveland Browns Sunday earned the team a few accolades from a pair of analysts on NBC's “Football Night in America” program. Former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy was effusive in his praise of the offense's strategy of giving the ball to running back Ray Rice, who rushed for a career-best 204 yards and one touchdown. “You think of the Baltimore Ravens and all their defensive stars, we think of [defensive tackle Haloti] Ngata and [inside linebacker]

The Ravens' 26-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans Sunday caught a lot of observers by surprise. Count two member of NBC's Football Night in America among that group. A week after being showered with praise for their 35=7 convincing victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens can expect a heap of questions and criticism -- beginning with comments from former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison. "I didn't expect a veteran team like Baltimore to come out and have that emotional and mental letdown," Harrison said.

It's not every day you hear Thurgood Marshall's name spoken in the same context with Marvin Lewis', but that's exactly what lawyer Johnnie Cochran did yesterday during a news conference at Don Shula's Steak House in Baltimore. Cochran and fellow attorney Cyrus Mehri are calling on the NFL to reform its hiring practices and say they have devised a plan that will help make sure African-American coaches get a fair opportunity to compete for head-coaching positions. Though 67 percent of the players in the NFL are African-American, only two of its 32 head coaches are. "Baltimore has always been a cradle for civil rights issues," Cochran said.

PHILADELPHIA - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers served up the Super Bowl no one expected yesterday and the matchup no one can resist. And we're not talking about the Bucs' No. 1-ranked defense against the Oakland Raiders' No. 1-ranked offense, classic though it is. No, the matchup that will consume San Diego in the Super Bowl on Sunday is Bucs coach Jon Gruden against his old team and his former boss, Al Davis. Gruden's fingerprints are all over both teams. He coached the Raiders for four years, from 1998 through 2001, winning two division titles and making an AFC championship game appearance in 2000 against the Ravens.

NBC Sports shared some of the interview that Tony Dungy did with Ravens coach John Harbaugh. It will air tonight during NBC's prime-time coverage. NOTE [from NBC]: John Harbaugh's brother is San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. Their father, Jack, was a longtime college football coach, including as an assistant at Michigan. DUNGY: If I were to describe you and your brother Jim, two words would be intense and competitive. Is that from growing up with a dad as a coach or is that from growing up together?

It seems like every time you turn around, somebody is complaining about Rex Ryan. Former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy called him out recently for his liberal use of profanity throughout the popular HBO inside-the-lines series "Hard Knocks. " Le'Ron McClain and Ray Lewis have both tangled with him during the buildup to Monday night's season opener between the Ravens and New York Jets at the new Meadowlands Stadium. I think we can all stipulate that Rex has a tendency to talk his way onto a ledge, but let's be honest for a minute.

They are linked by their Minnesota past, characterized by contrasting personalities, defined by coaching accomplishments. Ravens coach Brian Billick would be as bold in a board room directing a hostile takeover as he is on the sideline taking apart an opposing defense. Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy would show the same dignified stoicism whether he's in the final two minutes of a nip-and-tuck playoff game or delivering his son's eulogy. Billick will angrily scold a player on the sideline; Dungy will critique a mistake with a stare.

For the past two weeks, leading up to tonight's Super Bowl in Tampa, Fla., Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin - the third black coach to get his team this far, all in the past three seasons - has been answering questions about the impact of an African-American man achieving a position of tremendous power, authority and influence, forever altering a nation's perception of his race, and the race's perception of itself. Tomlin wasn't talking about himself, or football, however.

INDIANAPOLIS -- There's a truck in the parking lot of the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, the Indianapolis Colts' practice facility, advertising the team's schedule on the back panel. Next to the schedule is not the face of the near-certain Hall of Fame quarterback nor the visages of the perennial Pro Bowl defensive end, wide receiver or tight end. It's the face of Jim Caldwell. In his first year as the head coach of the Colts, Caldwell has joined Peyton Manning, Dwight Freeney, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark as the faces of the franchise.
