The Baltimore Ravens have fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and have replaced him with Jim Caldwell after a 9-4 start. I think it was a good choice and I also think that Caldwell will show that he doesn’t have to have QB Peyton Manning to run a very effective offense.
Caldwell was Manning’s coach with the Indianapolis Colts in some shape or form for 10 seasons. The two worked side by side for that decade as Caldwell was the Colts’ quarterbacks coach for most of the time and then head coach for the last three seasons.
“He’s a great man, and a heck of a coach,” said Denver Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme, who played for the Colts from 2008-2011.
It will be the first time in his career that Caldwell has called plays as that was not a duty he had in Indianapolis, even as head coach. You can bet that he remembers how the Colts and Manning used to call plays and what worked and what didn’t. He’s a smart man who worked with Manning for 10 years, so you can bet he will be prepared and he will have a solid game plan when the Ravens play Manning and the Broncos in Week 15.
The question this week will be: Will the Ravens be able to change enough in one week to show an improvement in their first game with Caldwell calling the offensive plays? I doubt it. The Broncos just need to game plan as if nothing is going to change and play their game.
Will Manning get a taste of his own medicine from his former coach? Tune in Sunday to find out.
