Notes from practice

May 02, 2008 |

Here are some notes from this morning’s practice:
          Marshal Yanda and Jason Brown will take some snaps at the center position.
          Coach Harbaugh made it a point to mention that no one is winning starting jobs at these camps
          The Ravens have giants play clocks on both ends of the field to help the qb’s simulate game type situations
          The quarterbacks are getting plays called into their headset’s by Cam Cameron even while they are at practice
          There is a slogan hanging around the facility almost every door you walk past that say’s W.I.N. today. It stands for: What’s Important Now.
          Art Modell spoke to the team after practice today and said he thinks this team has the makings of being a good time. As usual, Art cracked a few jokes while talking to the team.
          The weight room for the Ravens has been redone and the eyes of the Raven bird are some bright red glowing eyes. Pretty interesting to see.
          Everything during a John Harbaugh’s practice is done with a purpose and a sense of urgency. There is no sitting around and everyone is there for the whole practice, including the special team’s guys such as the punters and kickers.
