A Few Suggestions To Fix Baltimore Ravens Struggling Offense
A hot topic of discussion for much of this 2013 season has been about the Baltimore Ravens struggling and inconsistent offense. I’m going to offer my thoughts on what they can do to improve.
Pass more on first down. One of the most frustrating games to watch this season was a few weeks ago against the Green Bay Packers. The Ravens constantly ran on first down and would either be stuffed or tackled for a loss. Leading to many second- or third-and-longs. When you have a struggling running game, wouldn’t it be a good idea to use the pass to set up the run?
Take more shots down field. Joe Flacco has one of the strongest arms in the league to go along with fast receivers Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Deonte Thompson. Play to the strengths of your team. Even if the passes don’t hit you’ll, always get a few pass interferences.
Use Ray Rice to his fullest potential. The struggles of the running game are well documented. What I’m suggesting is to try some sweeps, tosses and screens. Let’s get Rice out in space and let this guy do his thing, instead of running him into a brick wall on every rushing play.
Now, I’m not exactly reinventing the wheel when it comes to these ideas. These are simple things that have been suggested before. They make a ton of sense, though, because you should play to the strengths of your team. At 3-4, the Ravens aren’t out of this thing by a long shot, but it’s time to start stringing some wins together. Three wins in a row turns a mediocre 3-4 to a contending 6-4. Coming off of the bye, I fully expect the Ravens to start implanting more of what I suggested.
