EXCHANGING PLEASANTRIES Despite a grueling three-hour practice, players from the offense and defense launched a lot of good-natured barbs at each other. Inside linebacker Ray Lewis and wide receiver Anquan Boldin got into it, and coach John Harbaugh's keeping score of "wins" by the offense (e.g. getting first downs, scoring touchdowns) got the defense's attention. But the most outspoken representatives were quarterback Joe Flacco and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs. At one point, after Flacco threw a dart to rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith on third-and-5, Suggs heckled Flacco from the sideline, arguing that the defense would've tackled Smith before he got the first down. Flacco simply responded by signaling a first down.
NICE TRY Under pressure from rookie defensive end Pernell McPhee, rookie quarterback Tyrod Taylor overthrew rookie wide receiver LaQuan Williams, and cornerback Lardarius Webb snatched the ball for an interception. During the return, wide receiver Justin Harper, who was trailing the play, yelled, "Pitch it back!" Webb ignored the request and ran out of bounds.
SEEING RED During a red-zone drill, Flacco found tight end Kris Wilson alone down the left sideline for a 13-yard scoring strike. The defense exacted a measure of revenge when linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo intercepted a Flacco seam pass intended for tight end Dennis Pitta in the end zone. But the exercise ended with Flacco finding running back Ray Rice alone on a circle route down the left sideline for a 17-yard touchdown. Flacco punctuated the play by lingering on the field with his hands raised signaling a touchdown.
GETTING TO THE QB The defense collected 12 sacks during full-team drills. Outside linebackers Paul Kruger and Albert McClellan led the way with three sacks each. Kruger got to Taylor in the end zone for a safety. McClellan's sack of Flacco caused the entire defense to rush the field and mob Flacco.
BIG HITS During a rushing exercise, a pair of tight ends made their presence known. Pitta blocked Suggs to the turf, and Davon Drew pancaked outside linebacker Sergio Kindle.
PERFECT DAY Kicker Billy Cundiff went 6-for-6 on field goals, which included nailing an attempt of 52 yards and two tries of 53 yards. Punter Sam Koch, who usually holds for Cundiff, tried his hand at field goals. With Taylor holding, Koch converted a 20-yard attempt, but pushed a 35-yarder wide left.
INJURIES Wide receiver David Reed (wrist) is the only player on the physically-unable-to-perform list. Players who did not practice included free safety Ed Reed (unspecified), right guard Marshal Yanda (back spasms), wide receiver James Hardy (hamstring), offensive tackle Brady Bond (left calf/shin) and rookie running back Damien Berry (unspecified). Cornerback Domonique Foxworth (right knee) and nose tackle Terrence Cody (ankle) were present, but did not participate in full-team exercises.
OVERHEARD "That looks personal, Mac." — Reed to inside linebacker Jameel McClain after Taylor's pass to rookie tight end Johdrick Morris hit McClain in the back.
