I’m not sure how much of a difference it would have made for Cam Cameron, but the Baltimore Ravens‘ new offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell told reporters on Thursday that he plans to call the plays from upstairs in the booth.
“That’s my plan,” Caldwell told reporters in his press conference on Thursday. “Whatever John [Harbaugh] wants me to do, that’s where I’ll be. At this point, that’s where I plan to be.”
I’ve never called plays in the NFL before — of course, neither has Caldwell — but I would assume that visualizing things from upstairs would be easier than standing on the sideline during the chaos of the game.
For what it’s worth, defensive coordinator Dean Pees made the switch from sidelines to the booth earlier this year.
