The biggest reason the Baltimore Ravens brought in Michael Crabtree was to help them win in the red zone. Too often the Ravens must settle for Justin Tucker field goals and that has to change. Crabtree has caught 51 career touchdowns with 25 of them being in the last three seasons. In 2016, Crabtree scored three touchdowns against the Ravens in M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens haven’t had a proven touchdown scorer at the wide receiver position since Steve Smith Sr. retired. The Ravens now have a player who has scored eight touchdowns two years in a row.

Marshall Yanda will be a huge difference for the Ravens offensive line which will help the Ravens in the red zone. The red zone is where the running game gets tougher, because there is less ground to cover for the defense. The defense can focus on stopping the run without leaving their pass defense compromised. Yanda is going to be back and he’ll have Orlando Brown Jr. playing next to him. If all goes right, that will be a sight to see and a powerful right side of the line. Last year the Ravens missed Yanda and had to settle for Austin Howard’s inconsistent play.

Really?  Crabtree may or may not be effective.  But the other two a giant assumptions.  Most rookie TEs are not that good.  This OL being much better I debate vigorously.

The play calling once they pass the 50 is horrible, Matt Cavs bad, if that doesn't change, nothing nor no one will help...

agreed.  That is my issue with having Tucker on the team.  They just think we can get 3.
