"With this offense, I have to remember all these plays we have going into the week, and then trying to remember some kind of skit out there that I'm going to do after I have scored, that's way too much." Torry Holt St. Louis Rams receiver, on elaborate touchdown celebrations "You have to understand this about Albert: He's impossible to pitch to. Try to do something, and he adjusts. He's so smart. I don't think any hitters have no weaknesses. But he's close." Pedro Martinez New York Mets pitcher, on facing the St. Louis Cardinals' Albert Pujols

In the NFL, there's a general rule of thumb that it takes a wide receiver three years to reach his potential. As with almost every rule, there are exceptions, and the Ravens will meet one of those exceptions Monday night when the Cincinnati Bengals visit M&T Bank Stadium. A.J. Green forged a record-setting campaign in 2011 after being selected fourth overall in the NFL draft earlier in the year. Following a path blazed by Randy Moss formerly of the Minnesota Vikings and Andre Johnson of the Houston Texans, Green headlined a strong group of first-year receivers that included the Ravens' Torrey Smith and the Atlanta Falcons' Julio Jones.

One week from now, we'll have a much better understanding of what the Ravens' roster will look like next season. But you don't have to wait for the first couple of rounds of the NFL draft to see how the Ravens could make the biggest upgrade, how they could take a pretty good team and immediately make it one of the league's very best. Anquan Boldin, the Arizona Cardinals' disgruntled wide receiver, represents the Ravens' missing link, and they're wise to pursue him aggressively. The way it stands now, it certainly appears as if there are two likely options for Boldin: an additional year in Arizona or a new friendship with Joe Flacco.

His close friend is sidelined with a heart infection. His football team is close to missing the playoffs. And closer to home, Joe Vitt had to undergo a heart procedure of his own last month. And yet, Vitt, the interim coach of the St. Louis Rams, said this year has been fun. "I love football," he said. "Anytime I get to come to work and I'm around Marshall Faulk and Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce and Orlando Pace ... that's fun. Things haven't gone exactly the way we wanted them to this year, but we're going to come out and work hard every day, and we're going to look to get better."

MAD MIKE MARTZ started yesterday like a man obsessed, calling 13 consecutive passes in two straight long-distance touchdown drives. Then he started losing key players - Torry Holt, Orlando Pace and, finally, Travis Fisher - and, by the end, he was just mildly perturbed Mike Martz, hoping his bedraggled defense could save the day. To the surprise of everyone who has seen his St. Louis Rams' defense play this season, it did. Like a microcosm of a...

COLLEGE PARK -- It's 11: 15 on a muggy Monday morning and the stifling humidity is beginning to set in for a 14th straight day at the Maryland football practice field.The morning practice is over, and most of the players head for the showers and a welcome break for lunch before the afternoon session.But an obviously tired Scooter Monroe remains on the field for a little more punishment. Monroe wants to work overtime on some pass routes with quarterback Calvin McCall.Ten minutes later, the freshman wide receiver from John Carroll comes off the field with sweat pouring off his face.

As the Ravens begin the final week of preparations for the 1999 draft, there will be countless internal discussions about trading up from their No. 10 overall slot in the first round. There will be debate about which quarterback to choose, how far Texas running back Ricky Williams will drop in the draft and if Torry Holt is a better receiver than David Boston.But the Ravens won't overlook possibly drafting a cornerback in the first round. It's not an exceptional year, said Ozzie Newsome, the Ravens' vice president of player personnel, but cornerbacks such as Georgia's Champ Bailey and Arizona's Chris McAlister are considered top-15 picks, and Ohio State's Antoine Winfield, West Virginia's Charles Fisher and Clemson's Antwan Edwards are rated late first-round candidates.

Ravens run offense vs. Rams run defense Willis McGahee is third in the AFC in rushing (464 yards) but is the only one in the top 10 who doesn't have a rushing touchdown. He will have a good chance at the end zone against the Rams, who have given up eight rushing touchdowns, tied for worst in the NFL. McGahee likely will be running behind an offensive line that will start three rookies (left tackle Jared Gaither, right guard Ben Grubbs and right tackle Marshal Yanda). St. Louis is giving up 146 rushing yards per game, which is fifth worst in the league.

In 1998, the lure of speed prompted the Ravens to draft Patrick Johnson in the second round when Hines Ward was still on the board. Two years later, big-game performances persuaded them to use a top 10 pick on Travis Taylor when Laveranues Coles and Darrell Jackson lasted into the third round. These attempts to land an impact receiver represent the major disappointments on what has become a revered drafting resume. For a franchise that has prided itself on selecting a future Pro Bowl performer at nearly every position, the Ravens have dropped the ball when it comes to finding a wide-out with the right speed, instincts and toughness.

ASHBURN, Va. - Darrell Green is not being deceptive about his status for the Washington Redskins' Monday night game against the Super Bowl-champion St. Louis Rams. Truth is, he really does not know. The 18-year NFL veteran cornerback wants to play, but to declare he will do so would be a bit premature. Green is still recovering from a calf injury sustained in the first quarter of the game against the Ravens on Oct. 30. Rarely have his services been more in need than against the Rams, the league's most prolific passing team.

In a perfect world, the Ravens would use their two first-round picks in the 2000 draft to add a play-making receiver and a future quarterback -- the offensive cornerstones they obviously need.But the Ravens' world is seldom perfect -- just look at their record -- and they may have to make a choice, especially if they decide to go after a premier player and package their two first-rounders for a pick in the top two or three.What do they take then? Which hole do they fill?Last spring, it would have been a quarterback; the draft class of '99 was front-loaded with enviable options such as Tim Couch, Akili Smith and Donovan McNabb.
