Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes 2008-12-05
--Running back Willis McGahee said he doesn't have an answer on why he had no carries in Sunday's 34-3 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals.


In his first comments since the surprise coaching decision, McGahee said he could have played although he's dealing with the most injuries he's had all season.

"It's kind of rough, but nobody is really 100 percent on the football field," said McGahee, who has dealt with knee, eye, rib and ankle injuries. "I can go out there and play and do what I've got to do, but they're resting me. So I can't complain."

--Coach John Harbaugh will try to improve his record to 2-0 against fellow rookie coaches when he faces Washington's Jim Zorn. He said he feels a "bond" between Zorn, Atlanta's Mike Smith and Miami's Tony Sparano.

"We were the guys at the NFL meetings trying to find our way around," Harbaugh said. "We didn't know where to go, didn't know who to talk to, and didn't know where to sit. We felt like the other guys were looking at us like, 'Who are these guys?'"

--The Ravens won't wear the usual all-black uniforms for national television because Harbaugh doesn't like the look. Instead, the players are expected to wear black jerseys with white pants.

--Center Jason Brown went on a rant in front of reporters when he thought someone was questioning the Ravens' "family." Said Brown: "We are very much on the same page and nothing is going to separate us."

--Asked if beating the Redskins would give them bragging rights inside the clubs around town, defensive end-linebacker Terrell Suggs said, "I'm not going to a night club. Haven't you heard what happened this past week?"

--Joe Flacco was named NFL Rookie of the Month. In November, he averaged 212 yards passing, throwing seven touchdowns and two interceptions

--The Ravens are 7-1 when losing the coin toss.

--Former Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Fassel (2004-2006) will provide analysis on Westwood One's national radio broadcast of Sunday night's game.

--Since 2003, the Ravens boast a 10-1 home record against NFC opponents, which is tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the best mark among AFC teams.

--The Ravens defense has scored 26 touchdowns since 2003, which is tied with Green Bay for the most in that span.

--The Ravens lead the NFL with 20 interceptions this season. No other team has more than 18.

BY THE NUMBERS: 99.1 -- Joe Flacco's passer rating over the past seven games, which ranks first in the NFL during that span.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Our guys have earned the right to be played meaningful football games in December. That's all we care about. We don't care about playing on prime time. We don't care if the rest of the country knows about us or not. We're not interested in any of that. We're not trying to impress anybody." -- Ravens coach John Harbaugh, on his team's focus after a surprising 8-4 start.
