Ahh crap...I live like 10 minutes from camp and I missed another year. The Sun said they had 5100 there on Sunday? That's pretty wild.M&T Bank Stadium - Section 513

Everyone must be really fried. Not a bad move. Whatever it takes to get everyone motivated.

WESTMINSTER -- The Baltimore Ravens are departing Westminster, breaking training camp after Wednesday morning's practice.
They will return to their $35 million training complex in Owings Mills for practice on Saturday afternoon following Thursday night's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles at M&T Bank Stadium.
"Westminster is a nice place and it's good to see the fans, but I've been ready to go back to Owings Mills for a while," tight end Daniel Wilcox said. "It was a good training camp. Now, let's go home and get ready for the season. I'm ready to put McDaniel College in my rear-view mirror until next summer."
The Ravens concluded their 19th day in Carroll County on Tuesday, and Ravens coach Brian Billick noticed that the intensity was beginning to wane.
He was displeased with his football team's lack of tempo during Tuesday morning's practice, attributing the regression to players looking forward to the end of camp.
The Ravens are under contract to hold training camp at McDaniel College through 2010.
"It needs to be better," Billick said. "It's late in camp. They're tired.
"They're probably feeling a little sorry for themselves. It needs to be a little bit sharper with the game as imminent as it is."It's a new season! It's a new day!

Good move by Billick reading the atmosphere from the players.Staying any longer could prove counterproductive,if the players minds are tired.
Who wouldn't want to rush back to plush 1 Winning Drive?Put the smile back on your face.This is a 60 minute ball game.
