Culture Shock 

Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron continues to change the culture in Baltimore with the Ravens offense. Beginning last year Cam Cameron started opening up the offense with consistent passing along with the “Suggs Package” (Wildcat formation) and some new gadget plays.  In the Ravens first game Sunday the offense opened up with a number of passing plays which kept some fans wondering why we didn’t see more from the ground attack. For many Ravens fans it was a type of culture shock in the home opener. Even after last year fans are still getting used to more explosive plays and with the aggressiveness in the home opener the offensive philosophy continues to change. 

Making A Statement

The offseason for the Ravens brought about endless discussion of bringing in a more talented wide receiver and outside criticism that the current receivers weren’t skilled enough. Many “experts,” felt the Ravens should have gone after a top wide receiver in the draft, instead the Ravens selected draft pick offensive tackle Michael Oher who has been an outstanding addition. Cam Cameron may have taken all of the negative talk personally because he called on Flacco to pass countless times to his receivers in order to put the critics to rest.

Promising beginning

Many can debate whether or not the Ravens in game one should have been more balanced in the first half by running the ball more, when they did run they were effective. Both Willis McGahee and Ray Rice ran well and both showed that their offseason training paid off.  LeRon McLain improved on his receiving, catching a few screens and continued his hammering style of running. The Ravens offense demonstrated that they have the tools to run the ball and throw at will. The offensive line showed much promise with a new center, veteran Matt Birk and rookie Michael Oher. The Ravens are looking to continue to attack defenses and stay aggressive, a promising beginning.

    It was a good sight to see the Ravens offense moving up and down the field, seemingly at will. Granted, it was against Kansas City, but still, this is offense unlike any Ravens fans have ever seen.

  2. Agreed. But notice, they went back to the run when KC took the lead.
