Yesterday I had the fortunate opportunity to attend the Ravens’ first day of training camp out at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mill. Though it is a far cry from having training camp held at McDaniel College in Westminster, the team is doing a nice job of providing the fans with a fun experience. They have provided more bleachers (albeit not under shade like out at Westminster) so that more fans can attend and there was a Fans’ Zone this year. The Fans’ Zone provided free popsicles on this hot afternoon, a food truck, and games and bouncy houses for the kids. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. It is a nice attempt to try and re-create the feel of training camp experiences out at McDaniel College.
Here are my observations from day one of training camp.
*The offense had some timing issues in 11-on-11 situations. Quarterback Joe Flacco was less January Joe, and more regular season Joe. Balls were a little off the mark, some double clutching took place, and there were a lot of check downs. That being said, many of the perceived check downs were clearly designed plays to get the ball to the running backs out in the flat in open space, a staple of offensive coordinator Marc Trestman’s attack.

Training camps are really important for a team to become better. It is important for athletes to train with their teammates, this will lead into a better team cohesion. In team sports, you cannot win by your lonesome, you need to be able to work with others. Training camps are a way for teams to gel well together. From the picture here, I can say that you are starting to become a better team already. I hope that you continue to develop as a team.

Breed and feed your fire-breathing baby dragon in the city, allowing him to defeat any opponent at the Colosseum.
