If the Ravens punting situation doesn't improve within the next game, the Ravens should take a hard look at veteran Sean Landeta. Neither rookie Sam Koch or veteran Leo Araguz were impressive against the Giants in the preseason opener.

Meanwhile Landeta, from Baltimore, is still on the free agent market. Landeta has a career average of 43.1, and has played on two Super Bowl championship teams. He is used to kicking in the cold having kicked in New York with the Giants, Philadelphia and Green Bay. The punting position is one of several positions still suspect coming out of training camp along with both the offensive and defensive lines.

But overall, a pretty good camp. Many people have wanted to know if this was Camp Cream Puff, and actually, it wasn't. We're not talking Tom Coughlin's boot camps here either, but head coach Brian Billick worked his players straight through the heat. There were no practices in the air conditioned indoor facility. When players got tired during the tail end of practices during the heat wave, Billick got after them. They finished strong knowing they have Tampa Bay at home in the season opener.

Overall, good work ethic and solid intensity. Has Billick changed? It's too early to tell, but so far he has been impressive. I like what I see in him, and this team. There are no complaints.
