Good Lord, Usually when a team fires a coach, they want to replace him with a better option. Don't think Baltimore has achieved that goal.

They replace an awful coach with an awful coach. Maybe he'll give Rice the rock.

reported on ESPN at around 10:41 cst

just caame home fro m Drs and NFL network listed it as breaking news and didnt see it posted anywhere else

from Ravens Web site this was a preseason article

The Ravens’ hurry-up, no-huddle offense is the rage

the hurry-up has been influenced by Quarterbacks Coach Jim Caldwell.

Caldwell, quarterback Peyton Manning and the Colts often used the hurry-up offense in Indianapolis.

“Jim’s brought some nuances,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “He’s brought a tempo or two we didn’t have before, just some methodology, I think, to it that he’s really added.”

Harbaugh said quarterback Joe Flacco has really advanced in his ability to read a team’s defense. Now he can walk up to the line a lot of times with only a few play options, and can make the choice based on what he sees.

Harbaugh said the offensive change is “very much quarterback driven.”

How many Division leading/playoff teams make a move like this?

Maybe he will tell Flacco just do whatever Peyton Does and u will be fine

-------------------------------------------

Its handoff or dump off to Rice if they are smart though

Ozzie is probably using Caldwell as nothing more than a stop gap measure, IMO. At least being a QB coach gives him some insight into Flacco's strengths and weaknesses, or maybe not??? I can bet Caldwell lets Flacco wing it more in his first game as OC.

I doubt he ever knew the playbook. I'm sure Caldwell is a nice guy and all, but he was truly a horrible coach and it still ticks me off that he was ever given the opportunity here to prove just how bad he was.

Since the change is made in December, in all likelihood, Caldwell just isolates a few plays to attack the weaknesses of the other teams instead of Cam Cameron going strength against strength. The playbook probably is the same. The question is, quick improvization to call the right plays in game situations. That part, I am not so sure of. :)

Attacking Denver weakness in next game = Rice up the middle and on dump offs or safety valves

He never understood in game situation play calling as a head coach, how that comes into play as OC we shall see if he learned anything, but it was his crazy time outs and other HC activities that we as Colt fans became aware off, he wont have all those duties as OC I think but I am getting ahead of my knowledge of the game and coaching duties maybe here

    • Bates as a ILB?
      Our 2013 draft did hit us. We corrected the ship with the 2014 and 2015 drafts.    We paid the price of 8-8 for our miscalculations. 
    • Bates as a ILB?
      I disagree. I believe Clark has the potential to be a day-one starter. Hell, I would be surprised if he doesn't start either at RG, or RT on opening day.    I understand why they would have Green and Clark as first round picks. They were both even mocked in the first round a few times. The measurable's on these two are off the charts. Clark is 6'5" with 36-inch arms and almost 12-inch hands. That's insanely not normal. Green is 6'2" 209, and he is running the forty in 4.34 seconds. Unbelievable!    Why is it hard to believe the front office? I had Kelly going as high as 16 to the Lions. Green's measurable's alone was getting him drafted early. I thought for sure that Clark would be a mid-second round pick. I had Ridgeway going in the late second or very early third. And I thought Blythe would be drafted a round or two earlier. It is not really hard for me to see where they are coming from. I see the exact same thing they do, and they have a lot more information than me.    Every NFL team is going to walk away from the draft feeling good about themselves. For the most part; they get the players they wanted. Different team needs, different offensive and defensive philosophies, different philosophies on players with red flags, and so on; this causes teams to have completely different boards. I would bet that no team has players ranked in the same order at any position.    I can tell you this; the moment we drafted Dwight Freeney, Bill Polian lit up light a Christmas tree. He raved about Freeney in the press conference. I went to camp and the moment I saw him running through drills, it was evident this was a beast of a man playing with boys. I had never seen anything like this in all my years as a Colts fan. I have several stories like that. 
    • Bates as a ILB?
      Let me ask you this, why isn't Clark going to contribute his rookie year much? Is it because he was drafted in the 3rd round? Is it because of what some draft analysts said about him? Is it some old school thing where rookies have to pay their dues to become starters and can't outshine a player that's been playing longer? Clark is no slouch, he'll likely start on day 1, whether it be at RG or RT (not sure which), and it won't be too hard to earn a starting job based on the goal of drafting the O-Line and the weakness of our O-Line before the draft. That old school mentality that you have to play a year or two before starting or getting playing time doesn't apply nearly as much anymore, especially if you more talented out of the gate than the person you are competing for the job with.
    • Bates as a ILB?
      I'm much more worried that eventually these questionable drafts are going to catch up to the Colts!    
    • Bates as a ILB?
      Green and Clark are guys that likely won't contribute much in their rookie year.    They'll likely both need a full year of seasoning to show dividends.   I have no objections to them,  it's how the front office described them.     Green a 1st round pick?    Clark a borderline 1/2?     Hoag a 2?      I'm sure Ridgeway and Morrison were ranked higher than they were drafted.   That's either rare,  Bill Walsh genius level insight into stacking the board,  or we have misevaluated again.   When you're announcing that 5 players were ranked higher to much higher on your board than they were drafted,   it makes me skeptical.      Especially considering our spotty history.   I'd almost feel better if we DIDN'T ANNOUNCE how highly we thought of them and saved that for a year or two down the line when they're paying off for us.      Now,  the expectations bar is way up on them because of what we announced.      I don't think it was smart.   Again.....    I'm hoping to be wrong,  but it's been my reading of history that when most teams announce they have players ranked much higher on their board than where they were drafted,  it shows why these teams aren't as successful as they should be.
