  The Baltimore Ravens lost to the red-hot Redskins and rookie sensation Robert Griffin III after failing to protect a late game lead against Washington's other rookie sensation, Kirk Cousins. So, what do they do? Fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, of course. Cameron has been under fire for years for unimaginative offenses and under-using RB Ray Rice. The Ravens, a rare three-point underdog for its visit to FedEx Field, built a 21-14 half-time lead and an eight-point advantage with 4:47 to go. Baltimore's defense allowed Washington a 13-play, 4:18 drive for a score and the tying two-point conversion. The Ravens twice knocked Robert Griffin III out of the game in the same drive (I didn't know knee joints could flex that way.) while also drawing an intentional grounding penalty. Rookie Kirk Cousins was clutch completing two of two official pass attempts. His real first attempt drew a pass interference penalty good for a first down. Then the Redskins dialed up a play from the RG3 playbook with a designed quarterback draw for Cousins' successful two-point conversion. What's a coordinator to do? Cameron has been rightly criticized for not rushing the ball enough. Sunday, Cameron called 30 runs to 21 passes by QB Joe Flacco. Both Rice and Bernard Pierce averaged over six yards-per-carry as the Ravens nursed a one-score lead late in fourth quarter. The post game conversation with Cameron must have been "You couldn't call more passes against that secondary?" Jim Caldwell, quarterback coach and the man whose last team Sucked for Luck, has been named interim offensive coordinator. Um yeah, firing coaches during the season always works.  Image: December 2011, Andy Lyons, Getty Images via zimbio.com.
