One week before the 10-3 Denver Broncos face off against the 9-4 Baltimore Ravens, the Ravens have fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and promoted Broncos QB Peyton Manning‘s former coach, Jim Caldwell.
The Ravens’ offense has really been struggling lately and they have not played up to their potential. The Ravens’ playing-calling has been sporadic, and they look like an offense that is unsure what they want to do from week to week, so it was a good time for a change.
As Baltimore’s new offensive coordinator, Caldwell will have a few weeks to get things the way he wants it before the playoffs begin, and hopefully for Ravens fans, they will improve and be better in the postseason.
There is no reason why the Ravens shouldn’t be one of the top offenses in the NFL. QB Joe Flacco can be a top-10 quarterback, Ray Rice is considered one of the best RBs in the league. They have several talented receiving options in WRs Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, TEs Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta and Rice out of the backfield.
With all this talent, there is no reason why the Ravens’ offense can’t be consistently solid from week to week with the right play calling and motivation. I think this was a move that should have been made even earlier in the season.
It just so happens that the Ravens are hosting the Broncos this week, and Coach Caldwell should be running a very similar offense to that which he and Manning ran with the Indianapolis Colts.
Maybe the Ravens are going to try to give Manning a taste of his own medicine this Sunday. Tune in at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time to find out.
