Cam Cameron Says Joe Flacco Has “Flexibility,” Never Says If He Can Audible

Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was asked about how much control quarterback Joe Flacco has on the offenseAn internet rumor started by TheSidelineView.com had Ravens fans furious at Cam Cameron yesterday.  Although let’s be honest, we’ve been looking for an excuse to be mad at Cam — it had been a few months.

TheSidelineView.com tweeted on Thursday that Ravens guard Ben Grubbs told Jim Miller on his radio show that the “Ravens won’t let [Joe] Flacco audible.”  The only problem was that Grubbs never mentioned anything about Flacco’s audibling abilities.

The Ravens media caught on to the rumor and asked Cam Cameron if Grubbs’ comments were indeed true.

Joe has a lot of flexibility and it varies from game to game,” Cameron reassured reporters according to CBSSports.com.  “Sometimes it’s not always tied to what the quarterback can do, it depends on your offensive line and there is a lot of factors that go into an audible. I guess the best way for me to be able to word it is that there is nothing we wouldn’t be able to do with Joe Flacco at quarterback in any aspect of the game.”

So, can Flacco audible?  I never read an answer in all of that political coach speak.

    Cameron is a control freak. If Flacco had the approval to audible, Cam should have said so. Why did Cam say “Joe has flexibility” what the hell does that mean. Either he thinks Flacco is too stupid to audible or Cam loves the control. Take your pick.

    Fairly typical language from this team…very POLITICAL. They answer questions with innuendo and vague responses.

    Its funny, but do you notice when the players leave the Ravens they talk about Harbaugh and his coaching staff in a bad light. It happens quite a bit with this Harbaugh regime. I know players are disgruntled and such but it seems like all the players that leave the Ravens never say a good word about Harbaugh or Cameron.

    Why do you think Cameron is still around? Because he’s a “Yes” man to Harbaugh. Harbaugh the “Man/Child” doesn’t like players or coaches that go against him.

    Remember when Scott left and said that Rex Ryan ran the Ravens not Harbaugh his last year here?

    Hell, it even came out that Chcuk Pagano, last years defensive coordinator didn’t get along with Harbaugh.

    There’s quite a bit that comes out of players/coaches not liking the clown Harbaugh…

    And about the audible. Harbaugh is behind it with Cameron. If Harbaugh wasn’t he would tell Cameron to allow Flacco to audible.

      Ravens2844228422…Bart Scott? 5-Time Pro Bowler Bart Scott? That’s your source for the “inside scoop” on the Ravens? Well, at least he has those 5 Pro Bowl Gym Bags to give him “credibility”. No, wait. Did you really mean to cite Bart Scott as your authoritative source?

    Typical Zach, only putting in part of the tweet, you failed to add the part about how it kills Flacco that he can’t audible. You are so ignorant Zach.

    Spoke with Jim Miller today and he said Ben Grubbs told them on Miller’s radio show that Ravens won’t let Flacco audible which kills him

    You see the last part where it says it kills him, would it have killed you to add that part you jerk. Because you didn’t you’re making your story seem like Flacco can’t audible when in reality he can but Cameron didn’t let him which killed/frustrated him. By the way Flacco has been audibling a lot in training camp but go ahead and focus on getting a story to trash him or Cameron.

      Typical Danel, putting in parts of rudeness the likes of which we don’t usually see in these spaces. You failed to add the part about being respectful.

      Daniel’s Post
      “You are so ignorant Zach”…”You jerk”.

      You see the last part where you kill him with rudeness, would it have killed you to add that part without the rudeness? Because you didn’t you’re making your story seem like Daniel can’t post respectfully when in reality he can but Daniel didn’t let himself which killed/frustrated me.

      Daniel, I would rather swim butt-naked in the Patapsco River with a paper cut on my nipple and die a slow agonizing death from viral infection, than read your shit… But unfortunately for you I have to comment…

      You got man love for Flacco like you do for your Uncle, Daniel? Word of advice clown, French kissing your Uncle is just the opening act… The problem is, after the opening act is over, your Uncle is looking to bring down the house…

      BTW, you still giving your Doctor hummer’s so that he’ll write you prescriptions for Valium?
