Right now it's all talk, hype, guess work and speculation.

Really, nobody knows if this Ravens offense is going to be powerful and explosive....most of those pieces are in place....or....average.

Yet in the offseason one can dream and take heart in statements like this..........

 

 

"I've got to make sure I understand the offense, forward and backward," Griffin said, per the team's official website. "The offense will look different. I think we'll shock some people with what we're going to do. If we need to run it 60 times, we can do it. But if we need to throw it 30 to 40 times, we can also do it. I think that's what we're working on, to make sure we have those capabilities. "This game is about mismatches and that's what we're trying to create," Griffin said. "You get a guy like Hollywood {Brown}, it's a speed mismatch. When you get a guy like Boykin, it's a height and reach mismatch. Get them in situations where they can be successful. If we can get Hollywood out there in training camp, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. Because the guys we have out there already, I think, are playing phenomenal. It's exciting."

RG3 isn't wrong. The Ravens have some pieces that should scare opposing defenses. They were already a good running team a year ago, and then they went out and added Ingram in free agency and Hill in the draft. They also drafted two receivers in Brown and Boykin. Don't overlook Roman's importance to the offense. He saw success with both Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco and Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo.

Of course, all of it will come down to Jackson's development. That's what makes the Ravens such an interesting team. If Jackson takes the next step, it's not difficult to see the Ravens making the playoffs despite being stuck in a difficult division. But if Jackson's development stalls, the Ravens could find it difficult to win games the way they did a year ago....https://www.cbssport...ck-some-people/

 

 

He didn't even mention the TE's, Ingram and Hill.

That's a scary load and too much for a defense to cover. Especially one that has to worry about Lamar.

Well.....many of us are worrying about Lamar.... :gorave:

“[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.”

Camp for rookies, and i think qb's, starts the 17th. Full camp on July 24. The closer we get to the season, the more excited I'm getting!

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.
