The Baltimore Ravens coaching staff and front office aren't messing around following a deflating loss at Buffalo in Week 4. One day after coach John Harbaugh called out the offensive line as a disappointment general manager Ozzie Newsome pulled the trigger on a trade for left tackle Eugene Monroe. Defensive tackle Chris Canty confirmed on NFL Network's "Around the League Live" Wednesday that the move succeeded in getting the attention of Ravens players. "It's showing everybody in the locker room that this organization is dedicated to winning now" Canty said. "We're not going to rest on what this football team did last year. We're trying to win football games now and I think that this puts everybody on notice that we need to bring our A-games. "Everybody needs to get on board in the direction that this football team is going which is to try to be successful and ultimately to try to win a championship." Now that the offensive line has been addressed Harbaugh's next priority is getting Ray Rice on track after the franchise back averaged just 3.0 yards per carry and 4.0 yards per reception in the season's first month. "We need to get Ray involved in every single way" Harbaugh explained Wednesday. "Passing game run game every single way. It's definitely important for us we want to do that every week and obviously we did not do a good job of that on Sunday."
