Monday was a sluggish day of practice for the Ravens. You almost expected that to happen because the Ravens had the big practice Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium, and there was going to be a letdown, especially in training camp. This was perhaps quarterback Joe Flacco's worst practice, and that's not bad because it was still fairly decent.
But Flacco was slow finding receivers and pulling the trigger. He was hesitant on a lot of throws. Actually, he played like the Flacco of two years ago. I don't expect that to happen frequently, because his new coach, Jim Caldwell, is a stickler on fundamentals. He corrects all flaws -- even the little ones.
