The Ravens officially made the transition from training camp this weekend, returning to their Owings Mills complex with moving vans, boxes of equipment and a focus unlike any other year. Wrapping up the most uneventful camp in the Brian Billick era, the Ravens successfully avoided all of their past pitfalls of distraction. There were no catastrophic injuries, no extended holdouts and no embarrassing court dates. There wasn't even a debate about their quarterback, unless it's arguing whether Steve McNair will throw more passes to receiver Derrick Mason or tight end Todd Heap.

Wide receiver Mark Clayton dodged the question as quickly as he evades a jam at the line of scrimmage. Despite becoming the first Raven to post 100 receiving yards in a game this season, Clayton wasn't in much of a mood to dwell on the achievement. "It was OK. But we need wins, man," he said Wednesday. "We've got to keep going and get everybody involved to get some wins." Clayton's 107-yard effort on eight catches was one of the few bright spots in Sunday's 21-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

While most players used the bye week to recuperate, Ravens right tackle Orlando Brown decided to get into even better shape. Brown started and played all 65 offensive snaps in the Ravens' 17-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the first time Brown had done that in 3 1/2 years, but the Ravens' relatively early bye left Brown with little chance to capitalize on the momentum from that effort. "I wish we would have played last week," Brown said. "But I'm all right. I worked out all last week.

Cornerback Chris McAlister said yesterday that his knee is improving and he thinks he could return for the Ravens' game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Although McAlister was limited in practice because of a strain he suffered in the Ravens' 22-3 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Oct. 14, he seemed optimistic afterward that he could end his three-game absence. "I get better every day," he said. "Being able to do the majority of things that I was able to do today with very little pain gives me a lot of confidence.

It took eight seconds for the Ravens' Yamon Figurs to catch the punt and race 75 yards for a touchdown Sunday. But hours of planning, practicing and scouting went into making the return work. That's why the Ravens have been able to break big returns, whether it's Figurs, B.J. Sams or Ed Reed catching the ball. The Ravens' commitment to special teams starts in training camp, where one of every four practices is devoted to the coverage and return games. Unlike predecessor Gary Zauner, whose unconventional drills included volleyballs and tackling dummies, Ravens special teams coach Frank Gansz is focused solely on fundamentals.

To ease his adjustment to being the backup this season, Ravens quarterback Chris Redman discussed his status with someone who has been there. Redman talked with offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh, who was primarily a backup throughout his 14-year playing career. "It is tough, but that is just part of being a backup. You've got to be ready to go," Redman said. "Matt tells me constantly he had to do that this whole career. You just have to be ready." Redman looked anything but when he took over for Kyle Boller in the third quarter of Sunday's 33-13 win over the Cleveland Browns.

In a span of a year, receiver Clarence Moore has gone from the starting lineup to the bench to the operating room - twice. Two hernia surgeries have only added to the frustration for Moore, who has been limited to conditioning drills all offseason while Demetrius Williams and Devard Darling continue to battle for the No. 3 receiver job. Moore said he still believes he can be a factor for the Ravens once he is able to suit up for training camp. "They know what I can do for the most part," Moore said.
