Matt Cavanaugh, the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator, resigned under pressure yesterday after meeting with coach Brian Billick, who finally lost patience with the team's sputtering attack. The Ravens (9-7) lost four of their final six games and missed the playoffs. Much of the blame was heaped on an offense that finished 31st among 32 teams in average yards per game. Former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel, who served as a senior consultant on offense for the Ravens this season, will be considered as a replacement.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The frustration over the inability of the Penn State offense to move the football consistently bubbled over on the sideline at times this season, with quarterback Christian Hackenberg and offensive coordinator John Donovan at the center of the discord. It was particularly evident during the Nov. 1 game against Maryland, a 20-19 loss, when Hackenberg appeared to have animated discussions with Donovan. Head coach James Franklin said a few days later he felt there were areas that his sophomore leader "can handle better.

Bill Musgrave, Joe Montana, and Steve Young used to have a contest that involved rolls of tape, goalposts, and killing time. Quarterbacks are typically always up for a challenge, and this one had the three then-49ers competing to see who could toss the most rolls of tape into the hollow end of a goalpost. "It was just something to do, little contests because we're very competitive, whether it be Ping-Pong; punt, pass, or kick; or quarterback Olympics," Musgrave said Thursday.

MARK SANCHEZ last started an NFL game on Dec. 30, 2012, at Buffalo. His New York Jets lost, 28-9. Sanchez completed 17 of 35 passes for 205 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. His passer rating was 55.1. The Jets wrapped up a 6-10 season and went on to draft Geno Smith out of West Virginia. Sanchez's journey from that night in Buffalo to Monday night at Lincoln Financial Field, where he will be introduced as the Eagles' starting quarterback for the first time, has been a bumpy one. The key event was a shoulder injury suffered in 2013 when he was reinserted late in a meaningless Jets preseason game, causing Sanchez to miss that entire season and closing the door on a future with the team that had drafted him fifth overall in 2009.

Chip Kelly looked around at a Mission Viejo High School practice 10 years ago and saw coaches from Southern Cal, Stanford, and Texas. Kelly was the offensive coordinator at New Hampshire, recruiting a different caliber of prospect. They were all watching the No. 1 high school quarterback in the country: Mark Sanchez. "I just thought, that kid is a really good player," Kelly said. "I wasn't talking to him that day, I'll tell you that. " Kelly signed Sanchez's backup, R.J. Toman, and made other trips to the school while recruiting in California.

Camden Catholic football coach Nick Strom says he watches his language around his team. "We don't use the 'H' word," Strom said. Every other South Jersey team is allowed to say the word huddle . But fewer and fewer are doing it. It's one thing for a young, innovative first-year coach such as Strom or an iconoclast such as Pennsville's Ryan Wood or a mad scientist of an offensive coordinator such as Paul VI's Russ Horton to feature...

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State offensive coordinator John Donovan usually likes to call plays from his booth in the press box, but he spent Saturday night on the home sideline at Beaver Stadium to help quarterback Christian Hackenberg. Nittany Lions coach James Franklin said this past week that Donovan would return to the booth on Saturday, after being on the sideline two weeks ago at Michigan. But after meetings on Wednesday, the decision was made to keep Donovan on the sideline.

The Jacksonville offense does not boast LeSean McCoy or Nick Foles or Pro Bowlers on the offensive line, and those watching Sunday's Eagles-Jaguars game likely will not confuse it with Chip Kelly's group. But when the Eagles defense is on the field, Jacksonville's pace might look familiar. Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch studied Kelly and Auburn coach Gus Malzahn after the 2011 season when he was the offensive coordinator at the University of Miami and installed an up-tempo system.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - The Eagles managed to make a ripple of Super Bowl-week news yesterday, finally announcing the hiring of Bill Musgrave as their quarterbacks coach, something that was widely reported last week. If you were hoping for something from Eagles coach Chip Kelly on why Musgrave is the new quarterbacks coach, though, you were out of luck. The announcement told us only where Musgrave has played and coached; it didn't even feature a quote from him about why this might be an appealing opportunity for the former Eagles offensive assistant (in 1998)

BILL LAZOR certainly became a hot commodity after presiding over Nick Foles' development, a huge key to the Eagles' turnaround in the first season under Chip Kelly. Lazor, Kelly's quarterbacks coach, was officially named the Dolphins' offensive coordinator yesterday, a day after it was reported he was the Lions' first choice for that job. Lazor chose Miami and Ryan Tannehill over Detroit and Matt Stafford. "Bill is an accomplished coach and will be a great addition to our coaching staff," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said in a statement released by the team.
