    Entirely different situation. There was also rumblings about Billick being on the hot seat at then of 2005. If the Ravens had collapsed in 2006, he would have been fired then but they put together a good season and that saved his job for another year. 2007, coming off a good season the team totally imploded. There was a 9 game losing streak. They embarrassed the franchise in pretty much every possible way, losing to an other wise winless team, Bart Scott tossing flags and getting into it with a ref, Ngata punched Joe Thomas while he was laying on the ground, losing to the Bengals in a game where the Bengals kicked 7 fucking field goals. Being the Steelers homecoming bitch. These are painful memories.

    My point is even if the rest of the season doesn't go as planned, Harbaugh is only on strike 1 after this. Billick was on, probably at least strike 5 or 6.

    Im curious to see the personnel usage on Sunday. I still think a healthy Dickson can be some sort of threat and he has improved as a run blocker. The Colts made many 2nd TE's viable in their offense and it can be a real mismatch creator.

    Guys lets not get carried away here, we won't be nothing like the colts, that was mostly manning, what I am looking for is better situational play calling and better designs which leads to better decision making by Joe.

    Re: Caldwell Style

    I can't wait until Sunday to see how this offense runs. I truly believe Cameron was a huge issue with this team and not just being an offensive coordinator. I think Cameron created a rift in the locker room because of his arrogant personality. Just look at this quote from a Yahoo article by Jason Cole.

    In short, Cameron is a control freak. He has been for years. Ask people who were in Miami when he served as Dolphins head coach for just one season (2007) and you'll hear stories about how it was actually easier for people in the building to deal with Nick Saban than Cameron.
    No person wants to work with someone like that. Now we have Caldwell stepping in who has a great rapport with coaches. Just look at what Peyton had to say about Caldwell, "He's as fine of a man as I know. I miss being in his presence because that was a fun time we had together". That is the kind of things you want to hear about a coach. You want someone who can connect with other coaches and players.

    I agree with this 100, I never liked the hire to begin with, it was bad Harbs may have fucked Joe's career up because of this, but will see how it plays out, starting sunday..I don't expect to see fireworks and just want to see how this unit operates, will it be cohesively? better routes? more creativity? better plays that will equal success to excution.

    I dont anyone has any delusions of that, Peyton is a one of a kind QB. We have a good base of talent, a good QB and we run the ball well. We also have some versatility with the pass catchers we have to attack the whole field. Like you said if we can become more efficient, raise that 3rd down conversion percentage as well as time of possession we stand to be a much better offense. I've long said i thought the Ravens had to be one of the easiest teams to gameplan for and from the early rumblings and albeit guesses about what Caldwell will bring, we will become decidingly(if thats a word lol) more difficult to gameplan against. That in itself is a win. I dont expect dramatics or Joe to go out and throw for 400 yards and 5 TD's on sunday. I think we'll run the ball alot but on 3rd down i think we will have a much better shot at converting and i think we can eat up more clock. I also think if we can sort of lull Denver in with so shorter throws early we will have a chance to get some deep shots.

    Re: Caldwell Style

    I don't expect a sudden conversion into the Greatest Show on Turf, but I do hope to see more use of quick passes and the middle of the field. Caldwell would be making a mistake to get away from Rice, and I'd hate to see Leach get left on the sideline.

    This team can't be all one or the other. It has to be balanced on offense. It needs to eat up clock. Our O-line isn't going to dominate pounding the rock. They aren't going to keep Flacco protected enough to just air it out.

    Re: Caldwell's Style -- What to Expect (Merged from 3 Threads)

    It should make sense why Joe Flacco looks inconsistent from the first half to the second half. Think about how often we have criticized Cam Cameron for his lack of adjustments in the second half, while opposing defenses change up with success. It comes from the top.

    Look at how long it took Cameron to handle the overload blitz that Haslett started sending in the second half. The first miscue was on both Joe and Cameron. Cameron for the setup and Joe for not getting rid of the ball quickly and taking the points. The rest were on Cameron, because you just don't see a quick outlet for Joe. The one time they beat it on third down, was when they put Joe in the gun, kept Rice in the backfield and were able to hit Boldin with time.

    The Eagles game is another example.

    If Jim Caldwell can adjust to the changes made by the defense in the second half, that in itself could improve the offense.
