    Oh, I agree. And I wasn't calling for more passing plays, just a more dynamic offense, one that suits the flow of the game and...wait for it...makes an adjustment or two when things are not (or stop) working. I see Rice being more like a Marshall Faulk (15-25 carries) and 5-10 catches (for great effect).

    I think we've seen some of Ray Rice's best work this season at times when we're running the no huddle with him as single back. And I think those have been the times when Joe's in more control of the offense. I don't think we're going to go more pass happy. I think we're going to go more effective and take what the defense gives, whatever that may be at the time.

    Think Leach can play middle LB? Bet he could stop the run.....

    Agreed. If Caldwell uses the middle more, utilizes play action more, incorporates screens, slants, rubs, etc then I'll be a happy camper. Just more consistency. Let's face it, with our OL we can't afford to run 5 and 7 step drop plays when passing. I also agree on the Rice thing. Not only is he the best player on the team, in order for us to win going forward we HAVE to win time of possession. Our defense might get a little better with someof the guys coming back from injuries (although with the offenses we're facing maybe not) but that defense is still not going to morph into the 2000 Ravens or even the 2006 version. The best way to protect them and keep them fresh is to win the possession battle.

    Re: Coaching Change -- Cam Cameron has been Fired

    Like most folks here I was always frustrated by the lack of adjustment in play calling DURING the game. Yes the defense contributed to yesterday's loss(I get that Derrick Mason), but how do you explain how when the Redskins started aggressively blitzing that our play calling didn't adjust to take advantage of that?

    edit: BTW that GIF is awesome.

    Re: Coaching Change -- Cam Cameron has been Fired

    From Ravens:
    "Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has elevated Jim Caldwell to offensive coordinator and relieved Cam Cameron of his duties, it was announced Monday afternoon.


    Here is a statement from coach Harbaugh:


    “I have made a coaching change, and Jim Caldwell will take over as the offensive coordinator, which includes play-calling duties.


    “My charge – our responsibility as a coaching staff – is to maximize the opportunities for our team to win, and we can still reach all of our goals for this season. We have a motto we follow on this team: W.I.N. – What’s Important Now – and what’s important now is to find ways to get better, win the AFC North and advance to the playoffs.


    “With our coaches and players, the solution is in the building. We are going to make the most of our opportunities going forward, and this change gives us a better possibility to achieve our goals.


    “There is a very human side to this. Cam is my friend, he taught me a lot about coaching, and he is an outstanding coach. Personally, this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do as a coach. Cam has been a significant contributor to all of our successes over the past four, almost five, seasons. Deservedly, he is highly-regarded, and we owe thanks to him for what he did for the Ravens.


    “It’s not about fair or unfair, right or wrong. My responsibility is to the whole team and what’s best for them right now. We need a change. Our plan and our goals are to win games, win our division and get to the playoffs.


    “We have a lot of work to do, and we have the coaches and players in place to achieve our goals this season. We are working on that right now. I’m excited about where we are and where we are going.”

    I wonder what players are not happy about this? I can bet years salary that it aint Joe or Boldin.

    It is a great day, but bad taste, my opinion.

    That aside, I think the offense, the players, and the CROWD this Sunday are going to be really fired up. I am sure the Broncos can't be happy with this development. I don't think wholesale changes are coming on offense, but I do think Joe has a better feel for the game than what Cam't stolen menu from Double T Diner says.

    A few plays in the middle at the right times will keeps drives alive and make us much less predictable.

    I would hope we no longer see the lull where we have 3-4 straight 3 and outs because we keep doing the same thing over and over.

    You know, to be fair to John, I am going to let him off the hook for not doing this sooner, and in the off season and see what he does from here. I like what he said, it was impactful, personal, and true. I slam the guy at when I feel it necessary, but I must also give him props for not only doing what needed to be done, but doing it right.
