Ravens' Saturday pool report

The Ravens fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on Monday and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell, according PFW correspondent Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

Cameron had been the Ravens’ offensive coordinator since 2008. Baltimore has lost back-to-back games, falling to the Steelers 23-20 in Week 13 and the Redskins 31-28 in overtime on Sunday.

Baltimore is 18th in the NFL in total offense after finishing 15th last season. Cameron has received criticism for the lack of use of Ray Rice, who is 12th in the NFL in carries. Joe Flacco has thrown 18 touchdown passes and nine interceptions and has a passer rating of 87.1.

Caldwell was hired this past offseason after spending the previous three seasons as the Colts’ head coach. He was Indianapolis’ quarterbacks coach from 2002-08.

The way we see it 

Cameron had an up-and-down five seasons with the club. There were times when the offense thrived, but inconsistency too often marked Baltimore's play and approach. Two elements to watch with Caldwell calling the shots are whether 1) the offense uses more of the no-huddle, which Flacco likes and 2) Rice's usage.
