The Ravens inexplicably went away from Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice after he had success on their first drive during Sunday's blowout loss to the Houston Texans. He didn't receive a carry on their next two, albeit brief, possessions. And after handing Rice his fourth carry of the game on the last play of the first quarter, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had an interception returned for a touchdown, giving the Texans a 16-3 lead. At that point, the game spiraled out of their control, and the deficit of two and then three and then four scores meant that Rice would have to become a non-factor on the ground.

A new state audit says Maryland's public defender's office is failing to properly document whether its clients are poor enough to need its help. The periodic review by the state's Office of Legislative Audits, released Thursday, also found the office is struggling with cost overruns and heavy workloads for attorneys, and needs to do more to put resources where they are most needed. Those findings and questions about client screenings have been raised in previous audits. The state Office of the Public Defender provides legal representation to poor people charged with crimes.

After almost two weeks of inactivity, Ray Rice enjoyed his heaviest workload of the season in Sunday's 25-15 win against the Cleveland Browns, carrying the football a season-high 25 times for 98 yards and one touchdown. Although the running back gained just 22 yards on 12 attempts in the second half, Rice was appreciative that offensive coordinator Cam Cameron didn't stray from the running game. “We love that. I've never been a guy to say, 'Gimme this,' or 'Gimme that,'” Rice said Wednesday.

The first indication that KEYW Corp. takes a different approach to business is its name, an adaptation of the airport code for Key West. Then there are the patio furniture in meeting rooms, the parrot mascot and the Jimmy Buffett tune that plays when callers are put on hold. But it's not to be construed as goofing off. “We're not walking around in sandals and shorts,” CEO Len Moodispaw said. “If you were to look at Silicon Valley, which traditionally has been blue jeans and laid-back, we're more like that because of the high-tech workforce we have.” An engineering services firm, KEYW works with software, hardware and systems engineers to develop capabilities and technologies related to cybersecurity, counterterrorism and geospatial intelligence.

In more than three full seasons as the Ravens' featured tailback, Ray Rice has carried the football 958 times and caught 246 passes. That averages out to 301 touches per season, which is a full workload for any running back in the NFL. But after rushing the ball a season-low nine times and compiling just 14 touches in the team's 43-13 loss to the Houston Texans on Oct. 21, Rice said he's open to the idea of getting at least 25 touches in Sunday's road...

Ravens running back Ray Rice had 12 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown in the first three quarters of the 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he did not touch the ball on their offensive eight plays in the fourth. In the past, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has been criticized for not using Rice enough -- my colleague Mike Preston did it again after Sunday's loss -- so he had an answer ready for reporters on Thursday. “That's our own fault,” he said, interrupting a reporter midway through a question about Rice's workload.

Taking a handoff in the first contact practice of training camp, Willis McGahee hit the hole only to get stripped of the ball. If that wasn't humiliating enough, cornerback Corey Ivy shouted across the field, "Get them here on time, running back coach." McGahee was one of the last players to arrive to morning practice Friday, again raising questions about the mercurial running back's commitment to the team. Because McGahee skipped most of the offseason workouts this year and struggled to stay on the field last season, it wouldn't come as a surprise if the Ravens decreased McGahee's workload, especially after drafting Ray Rice in the second round.

When Ray Rice set a season low with just eight carries in a 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 4 and then surpassed that with just five rushing attempts in a 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 13, much teeth-gnashing ensued. Even the Ravens running back wasn't happy with his involvement in the offense at those times, but with three more contests in the regular season and what appears to be at least one game in the postseason, Rice is beginning to think that the reduced workload is beginning to pay dividends now. “I don't want to say I saved my best for last, but I think the fact that I wasn't getting the carries early on was a blessing in disguise for me right now,” he said Wednesday.

After its latest meeting nearly turned into a slumber party, the City Council is looking for a better way to handle its burgeoning workload.More work for the council means hearty agendas that lead to lengthy meetings. The Oct. 14 council gathering stretched five hours, until 12:30 a.m.That's the longest meeting in recent memory and could rank as thelongest ever, city administrators said.The recent post-midnight affair is the exception more than the rule. But council members concur that the workload is ballooning and that, without some action, protracted meetings could become routine.

In an unusual move, Baltimore County teachers filed a grievance this week against the county school board saying new education initiatives are forcing them to work long hours beyond their normal day. Teachers in the county and the rest of the state have had to adapt their teaching this school year to new, more rigorous standards known as the Common Core. Local school districts were expected to have written a curriculum - a detailed road map of lessons - based on the new standards, but the county fell behind in the elementary grades.

Orioles outfielder Michael Morse was hitless in his three at-bats Wednesday night and is now 0-for-15 since singling in the second inning on Sept. 3 in Cleveland. He is 0-for-13 as an Oriole at Camden Yards. Morse said he wasn't overly concerned, and neither was his manager. “Mike, he's been good, I'd just like to see him get some return for how much he wants to contribute,” Buck Showalter said before Wednesday's game. “Sometimes that can get in the way a little bit … We need him. He's been a good addition; just hasn't played out completely yet.” Looking for another right-handed power bat, the Orioles acquired Morse on Aug. 30 from the Seattle Mariners for minor league outfielder Xavier Avery.

The Ravens have not budged from their contention that no matter which Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback lines up under center Sunday, they are preparing to defend the offense, not the quarterback. The identity of that quarterback is still unknown, but Ben Roethlisberger is scheduled to increase his workload at Wednesday's practice. That doesn't mean that Roethlisberger has been cleared to play after suffering dislocated ribs and a sprained right throwing shoulder in the Steelers' 16-13 overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 12. In fact, coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Charlie Batch is still the starter.

If Baltimore's state's attorney and police department manage to forge a relationship that finds them working together, rather than in opposition, the citizens will benefit. ("Approach to police crimes is changing," March 8) We have in Baltimore what I refer to as a criminal justice non-system. Baltimore is not alone; the same holds true on a national scale. The word "system" connotes an amalgamation of otherwise separate entities conjoined with a single purpose and acting in unison and agreement to meet a shared goal.

In the Ravens' new running scheme, the joke could end up being on Willis McGahee. Criticized for not showing enough commitment to the Ravens, McGahee might have to learn about the concept of "team" the hard way - as in, a running-back-by-committee situation. From all indications, it seems as if McGahee, the Ravens' featured back last season, will have to split time with two upstarts, Ray Rice and Le'Ron McClain. McGahee is expected to make his first appearance against the Houston Texans on Monday after missing the entire preseason with a knee injury.

The Ravens signed Jacoby Jones as a triple threat who can catch passes as a wide receiver and return kicks and punts. The six-year veteran will get to undertake all three assignments this season. Special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said after Tuesday's practice at the team's training facility in Owings Mills that Jones is the primary kick returner at this time. Punt returns will be shared by Jones and Lardarius Webb, but with Webb starting at cornerback, that role could be shifted more in Jones' direction.
