MATT CASSEL will be back under center as the Chiefs' starting quarterback on Thursday night at San Diego, because Brady Quinn (concussion) has not been cleared to practice. Coach Romeo Crennel said Tuesday that Ricky Stanzi will be the backup. Fullback Nate Eachus has also been ruled out with a concussion. "They will continue with their testing and evaluation and will return when the doctor releases them, and lets us know they're OK," Crennel said. Cassel started the first five games of the season before he suffered his own concussion against the Ravens.

For 30 minutes last night, the Baltimore Ravens were inefficient, unproductive, and disorganized. Then, in just 17 seconds, they changed all that. Ray Rice scored on a 13-yard run, and safety Dawan Landry returned an interception of a Brady Quinn pass 48 yards for a touchdown on Cleveland's next play as the Ravens overcame the horrendous start for a 16-0 win over the hapless Browns. The Ravens (5-4) did not score in the opening half, when they used up their three time-outs in the first 6 minutes, 15 seconds; committed silly penalties; and made the Browns (1-8)

New York, New York Hello, Nifflers. Can you see this OK? I ask because we've moved out of our comfy Niffle Blvd. headquarters for the week and into the core of the Big Apple, where they have two teams in first place, and the reception on my 1996 Compaq is a bit fuzzy up here. How exciting is it these days in North Jersey, er, New York? You be the judge. Yesterday, Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press reported that Jets center Nick Mangold witnessed two mechanics arguing over which team - the 10-1 Giants or 8-3 Jets - was more interesting.
