Looking at our offensive makeover of the team through free agency and the draft along with what Eric DaCosta has said, I'm getting the feeling that the Ravens just might revolutionize the NFL. Lamar, RG, and the third quarterback from Penn State whose name I can't remember are all of the same basic mold.

All three are quarterbacks who can run (and, hopefully pass) with speed and agility. They are building a new receiver room with speed. Looks like if you can't run fast you won't be on a Ravens' team.

 

I'm sure hoping for success. Last season was fun until the playoff game. If what we saw happening on the field mimics more like we saw during the regular season, this team will be big news!

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.

Last season was fun and I expect this year will be even better. :gorave:

It will take time for the offense to develop as a unit....as one. Maybe by week 8 they begin to hit stride.

“[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.”

“Put on 20 pounds of muscle over the offseason,” Hurst said. “I’m kind of on a mission this year. I’ve got a lot to prove.”

Im not sure what to expect in terms of Ws and Ls but the season should have plenty of excitement, speed and energy, especially on the offense. Lots of raw, untested talent to be sure. Should be lots of fun!

I really hope it's a revamped offense.  I remember being so excited after the last super bowl and the way our offense played out of their mind.  That was going to be the future and then, the future happened...

That's why Joe's in Denver.

 

They weren't putting up a ton of points with Lamar.

A ton of yards. A ton of possession time. Yes! and that kills defenses and opposing offenses. That took KC to the wire.

Yet they must score more points this year to contend.

 

Whatever happens...they're "Our Ravens!" :gorave:
