The Baltimore Ravens have one of the best running backs in the NFL, yet somehow it continues to be acceptable for offensive coordinator Cam Cameron to only use him nine times.
In his Monday press conference, John Harbaugh admitted that perhaps the Ravens might have quit just a tad too prematurely on their running game.
“No, we could have stayed with the run a little more patiently. Once they got the tip-ball interception, we felt like we needed to try to get back in that thing a little bit more quickly because of the type of team they are. We probably all say we could have been a little bit more patient with the run – whether it’s Ray Rice or Bernard Pierce or whoever it is. We want to get the ball in all of our playmakers’ hands. We probably didn’t do that like we wanted to – whether it’s screens or handing it off to Ray [Rice] or pushing it downfield to Anquan [Boldin] or whatever.”
I know it’s not fancy, but running screen passes to Ray Rice all game doesn’t bother me. It actually works. So maybe try that next time instead.
Doesn’t really matter much as this team is not capable of maintaining the defensive savy it once had and the offensive line isn’t ready to allow the offense to flurish,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,these recent picks by ozzie are failures and need to be recognized as such,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the longer it takes to admit Ozzie screwed up big time the longer it will take to rebuild this team…………………Ozzie has let this team down , I think he has been recruiting for Alabama and not the Ravens………………………..
Look, I’ve done my best to remain positive, but how can the fans of the Ravens keep accepting this? Everyone blames Cam, but isn’t it ultimately the head coach’s responsibility? How does Harbaugh keep getting a free pass? Who makes the decisions on which coaches to retain? This team has underachieved the last 4 years and now their window may have closed. Hoped you enjoyed “making the playoffs” the last 4 years.
The window may have closed,,,,are you kidding me,,,,, you are on the right track with your comments about Harbs but please look at this wndow , it is nailed shut pal…………..
I also think Harbaugh is part of the problem and when you add in the poor acquisitions recently by Ozzie,,,,,,,,,walla , you have the current Ravens,,,,,,,,,I just hope they recognize this terrible collection of coaches and talent and blow it up real soon so the fans can start looking through a window that is open again,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,what a shame to have waisted the collection of solid veterans on the defense , they are now leaving us with no replacements in sight , what a shame , and I really mean it , no kidding from the spy this time , I really think it as a shame……………….
