The Ravens are making a change at offensive coordinator. Greg Roman will be the offensive coordinator going forward as part of a potential re-organization of the Ravens' offensive coaching staff. John Harbaugh confirmed the change.

Wow.  That must have hurt.  Can't wait for the rumors out of the castle to start on this.

A. Retain Roman, lose Marty.

 

B. If that doesnt work, start anew - fresh young OC who can coach/mentor LJ.     

 

 

Wow, actually called that one !   Good move.  Hopefully, we can now resurrected the offense.

And he doesn't have Andrew Luck as his QB.

They just have to get this closer to a 50/50 run pass ratio.Get a 25-30% improvement in the passing game as far as completions. The yardage will spike up as Lamar improves.

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

We all know Marty and have screamed for his head.

Let's give him some props too....

 

 

Overall, the Ravens finished No. 9 in the league in total offense, No. 2 in rushing and No. 13 in scoring – more than respectable numbers. Very quietly, they established a new franchise record for most first downs in a season. They also gained an average of 69 more yards per game compared to 2017. By any reckoning, that’s solid work.............https://www.baltimor...a-few-reactions

This is what has to get fixed this off season and during OTA's and Camp.

#1 priority for the next 8 months.

Then the Ravens are in business.

 

 

A lot has been made about the Chargers’ defensive players telling reporters that they knew what was coming on a lot of plays, that the Ravens were tipping their hand in various ways. Whatever happened there obviously needs to be fixed.

More important going forward, though, was Jackson’s inability to make the Chargers pay for daring him to beat them in the air. It’s going to continue to happen until he does make teams pay for taking that gamble.....https://www.baltimor...a-few-reactions

I agree. I just hope Lamar has some untapped passing potential we haven't seen yet. He's a very talented runner and leader but his passing is erratic and his ball security is poor. I love the kid and hope he works out.

 

Right now, when you think about it, he's the only QB we have. They should re-sign RGIII who has handled himself with class and shown a lot of promise as a QB for us the times he's played.

 

We need to vastly improve the offensive line so Lamar has time to throw when he does sit in the pocket. They should keep Snead. Maybe Smoke too.

 

At least that's how I feel now.

Of course, any plan to solidify the passing game depends largely on how much Jackson improves as a passer in his second pro season. While he made some plays with his arm as a rookie, he wasn’t as consistently accurate as anyone wanted. He acknowledged to reporters earlier this month that he knew his mechanics needed work.

Jackson said he has been working on those mechanics and other aspects of his passing since February.

"...How much will Jackson’s playing style impact how the team is built?

 
The Ravens will need to fit pieces around Jackson that compliment his unique skill set. Big, physical offensive linemen who can protect Jackson as both a runner and a thrower will be a requirement moving forward. Having wide receivers who can accept fewer targets than they might get elsewhere, and who are willing to block and catch passes over the middle, will become a bigger priority. With Jackson running the football frequently, having a dependable backup quarterback is also important, which could factor into the Ravens’ desire to keep Robert Griffin III. Baltimore did an impressive job changing its offense dramatically midseason once Jackson took over as the starter. But the Ravens now have a full offseason to plot their offseason philosophy, and to pursue players that fit."

Me too pretty much. With the exception of last week I do think Lamar has improved each week. I'm hopeful a full off-season of preparation will help even more.

I agree about the offensive line, not sure about the receivers. Smoke started great so I guess I'd keep him. The rest I'm not sure. A legit #1 WR would be fantastic and might have a trickle down affect on the others.

With the exception of Edwards I'm not sure which I'd bring back at RB.

Well for once we will have some decent cap space. Hopefully we can find a WR1 there or in the draft in a mid round pick. Unlikely but possible. And Yeah, the OL is the really big issue this season.

Agreed with the above especially for the OL. We really need a strong C - haven’t had a really good one since Matt Birk. The Gs need upgraded too. Okay w Stanley and Zeus II as OTs. But that’s 3 positions that need upgrade. We need help at WR and RBs. That’s at least 5 picks for the O side. Still have to address D including pass rusher, LB (1 or 2), and safety. That’s about 9 to upgrade.

Between FA & the draft, DeCosta & Co will have a busy, challenging off season.

Is there any hope in Bozeman?  This was his rookie yr.

 

I like Gus for the long term.  I think he can give a quality 3 yrs and then dump him.  They need to find a Sproals like guy as a change of pace.

Gus is good. He should stay. The other running back can be a late rounder. 

 

2 OG's and a C are the priority without a doubt.

 

I don't know how we're going to get better receivers but we could use them.

 

Edge rusher and Safety are middle priority needs but needs nonetheless.

 

Da Costa will be burning up the phone lines no doubt. I'm hoping we can get a second round pick for Joe and maybe an additional late round pick. A rarity for the Ravens will be that they have to and can compete in the FA market.

Look at all the ppl that they look like they will cut.  You think they can fill all those needs in a single season?  Please explain how that works.
