About 6:30 Friday morning, Ed Reed sleepily trudged into the dining room in the Ravens' team hotel in Westminster, filled a container to overflow with fresh fruit and returned to his room to get ready for practice.
A few minutes later, Ray Lewis walked in and ordered the usual from server Manny Tejeda - an egg-white omelet. Steve McNair was one of the last to make a mandatory meal appearance, retrieved a bottle of water and left. Breakfast was being served, and with the exception of a few rookies and second-year players - not to mention most of the coaches and college interns - the pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage and muffins were left mostly untouched.
