    Re: Old Fashioned Offense



    4 years with Cam and our offense has added a lot more talent..the result, offense is marginally better than Joe's rookie year

    Re: Old Fashioned Offense

    It really drives me nuts how Cam will call all this long developing low % routes in a row. I think it's a big reason why Flacco's comp % dropped. I want to see more high % plays then work into deep shots. IE, I'd love to see them call some slants to Torrey. Then, have Torrey run the slant-go double move and leave the cb in the dust.

    Air Coryell is directly attributed to Joes low throwing percentage, as well as the drops weve all seen. as far as imaginative underneath routes, i think youre asking way too much of Cam. Thats like asking Bill Walsh to use the Run. Youd think with his Job/Ravens season on the line hed be more willing to bend on his philosophies that are clearly not working, but i think Cams to proud/dumb for that honestly. He hasnt designed a system that best suites his players as much as he tries to fit players into his system. I think the best coaches are flexible and switch to what gets the most out of their teams. Cam isnt a great coach.

    Re: Old Fashioned Offense

    Since were on the subject of playcalling, is it just me or does it seem like the more the season(s) has gone along the playbook gets smaller and less creative.

    I mean where are the gameplan that beat the Steelers the first game with all the TE crossing route.

    That is the most frustrating part to me is we know Cam is capable of designing a good play and game plan but doesn't always use it.

    Not sure a post can get me more frustrated. BUT let's dance with who 'brung' us for a couple more games, hopefully! Here's to Cam coaching like the guru he thinks he is this weekend!

    A bubble screen to Torrey would be good too. He's strong and can make dudes miss. It's worked against better defenses.

    When is Cam going to adjust this offense to suit the talent on this team? We desperately need some new thinking on this offense. Clean them all out and bring in someone who isn't friends with John Harbaugh and never coached with his father or played with his brother. Run this team like the business that it is and hire the best man for the job.
    I think he tried towards the beg of the year. When that didn't work people freaked out about not using Rice
    enough.

    Yes, but with some designed blocking please. Just throwing the ball to the guy because the defender is playing off-coverage is lame.

    Cameron went straight vanilla because they had the lead and the defense was taking care of Huttton straight away. It is frustrating that he does that a lot, but they did win 12 games (now 13).

    I don't like Cameron either. Flacco's non-growth this year accentuates why he should be excorted to the nearest exit, IMO.

    Alex Smith "came outta nowhere" on Saturday. Why? because the team needed him to move the chains and regain the lead. Those were plays the Saints had not seen on film nor were Smith's throws anything they had ever seen him do on tape. They were caught off-guard.

    If the D gets exposed, which they probably will for the better part of the afternoon, Flacco will have his sunshine moment, because the team will need him to make plays and get this team in the game. He failed last year against Pittsburgh, the year before against Indy, and the year before that against Pittsburgh. Everyone expects him to fail yet again, but I don't believe that will happen. He did it against the Cards at home, Pittsburgh on the road (both games this year) and I think he'll do it against the Pats.

    Who on their defense is gonna stop him?
    After 5 years of early exits, the journey is finally complete.

    Re: Old Fashioned Offense

    Wow. It's one thing to hear from our fellow posters that the offense is unimaginative and vanilla (even I knew this) but it's another thing for Greg Cosell to call Cam out. And to think we've gotten to this point in spite of Cam is truly an indication of the talent that's being wasted. In light of these schematic flaws I'm getting a little skeptical of the Ravens ability (i.e Cam) to attack the Pats defense the way they should.
    Let's pray Cam wakes up this Sunday.

    I couldn't agree more. Harbaugh is loyal to a fault (probaby his one drawback as a coach). Hopefully Ozzie and Steve will make the right decsisions at the end of the year. I am still holding out hope that this will be the game that Cam shows some creativity and takes full advantage of his players talents, listens to his peers feedback, his players feedback, and makes the necessary in game adjustments to help take this team to the Superbowl. We'll see..

    You hit on what frustrates me the most right here. This will need to change this game as ball control and time off the clock will be key.

    you guys have beaten this thing so far into the ground, by now it's in China.

    Re: Cosell or the genius that a few posters proclaim him to be, wasn't he the guy that said Bryant McKinnie was his least favorite player and that it was a terrible signing? Seems to me he has a little mud on his face for that one. But hey, Cosell is a genius... right guys?

    Greg Cosell on Bryant McKinnie-

    "He’s a big-time stiff. I mean if you look at his physical attributes you would say that he should be a great left tackle, but he doesn’t play that way. He’s a lazy player, he doesn’t have good technique, and he’s a non-competitive player. He’s one of my least – and you know me, it’s nothing personal, I’m just telling you what I see – he’s one of my least favorite players over the last 3-4 years. He almost engenders a physical reaction in me when I watch him because he bothers me so much"

    Greg Cosell on the amazing John Beck-

    "I really liked John Beck coming out of Brigham Young. Relatively speaking. I didn’t like him like he was a top-10 pick in the draft, but I saw elements of his game –and I always have to be careful when I saw this, but Matt I think you’re smart enough to get when I saw this kind of stuff, you’ll know that I’m not absolutely comparing him to this player right now – but I thought John Beck had elements in his game of a Drew Brees kind of player.
