Cam Cameron has been fired as offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, who have lost two straight and are still striving for consistency in the running and passing game.
Cameron ran the team's offense since the start of the 2008 season, when current coach Jim Harbaugh replaced Brian Billick. Since that time, the Ravens' attack has repeatedly taken a back seat to the team's defense.
The move came Monday.
Jim Caldwell, who was hired as quarterbacks coach before the season, will assume Cameron's duties. Caldwell was head coach of the Indianapolis Colts from 2009-11.
Baltimore (9-4) scored seven points after halftime Sunday in a 31-28 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins. Quarterback Joe Flacco passed for only 182 yards, lost a fumble and was intercepted in the third quarter.

Usually a team fires its offensive coordinator when it is mired in the depths of a losing season. The Ravens are 9-4 with a 2-game lead in their division race. What caused the panic that resulted in the firing of OC Cam Cameron, who's been with the Ravens since 2008 and has been a part of 5 playoff season drives since then ?

In a move that registered a “huh” on the Gallagher Scale Of Shock, the Baltimore Ravens fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replaced him with a cardboard cutout named Jim Caldwell.

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has been fired, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun on Twitter.
Former Indianapolis Colts coach, Jim Caldwell will take over. Caldwell led the Colts to the Superbowl two seasons ago – before getting fired after last season when the team went 2-14.
