    Your right, but when Rice or Pierce gains 6-7 on 1st down, run it again or come up with something short across the middle, not bombs away every time it is 2nd and short. I've noticed that Cam is so predictable that when it is 2nd and within 4 he calls a deep pass quit often. That is the obvious pass play from a 2nd and short. Gruden "2nd and short, I wouldn't be surprised to see a deep shot here on 2nd and short Jaws, Torrey Smith can really fly" It's almost every time and it is low percentage and when that fails it is almost automatic pass on 3rd and short, which is warranted, but it is much easier to cover when you know it's coming "quick out route" Just get the MF'ing 1st down and keep driving. Run the damn ball or a short pass to the TE. Cam does exactly what is scripted, 2nd and short (pass deep) 3rd and short (quick out). That is pee wee football coaching..

    Hmmm. Seems like only yesterday Cam's insistence on running the ball was the reason he had to go...

    Run-Pass doesn't matter. The Ravens have the players to be effective at either. But lately seem to effective at neither.

    Don't whitewash our justified criticism of Cam.

    It wasn't that in some games he runs the ball too much.

    It's that in some games he stubbornly sends Ray and Bernard right up the middle again and again even AFTER the opposing D has caught on and adjusted to stop that play--perfect example is the 2nd Browns game.

    Cam's problems are his awareness and adjustments.

    He seems to have little of the first so he rarely makes the second.

    Boldin to Cam: "the middle of the field is open"
    Cam: "Really?"

    This after the Texans, Browns & Steelers games where the middle of the field had also been open.

    But for Cam to send a WR not named Boldin over the middle of the field, especially short on a slant or crossing pattern, more than once or twice in a game REGARDLESS OF HOW THE OTHER D IS SET UP TO PLAY HIS O, so even if it would work, at least UNTIL THE OTHER D WOULD BE FORCED TO ADJUST TO STOP IT...no sorry, NOT CAM'S STYLE BABY!!

    That's the problem with Cam: he doesn't seem to understand the concept of finding something that works and sticking with it until it doesn't, then once it stops working, adjusting and switching to something else that may work (and if it doesn't, keep adjusting until you find something that works again).

    They need to give Pierce the ball more.

    That is the problem with Cam. He can't adjust to what defenses are doing. If his initial game plan works, the Ravens score a lot of points, but if it doesn't, the offense sucks for the entire game.
