5 Bold Predictions For The Ravens Offense in 2015

View image | gettyimages.com Last season, the Baltimore Ravens proved that they have one of the NFL’s elite offenses (even if the sports media doesn’t want to recognize it). Justin Forsett rushed for over 1,200 yards for the first time in his career. Joe Flacco had a career-high 27 touchdown passes last season and almost broke the 4,000 passing yard barrier.

Michael Campanaro injured—Flacco clicks with Trestman…

Tough break for Michael Campanaro, the 2nd-year WR/RB out of Wake Forest, who tore a quad muscle on the first day of OTA’s. Michael Campanaro is out for several months with a torn quadriceps suffered at Ravens OTA’s. That’s a tough break for a player who has flashed so much promise as a receiver, a running back and a kick/punt returner. It’s also a challenge to the Ravens’offensive...

Marc Trestman will make Joe Flacco a Pro Bowler

As I mentioned in a recent article, “The ‘Wacko’ nickname has eventually taken a toll on Joe Flacco’s reputation,” as he’s yet to receive the credit that he deserves. Other than the in-house support in which Flacco gets from the Baltimore Ravens, it’s no mystery that Flacco is still viewed as a less than elite quarterback in the NFL. That could all change quickly though...

Is Ravens' new offensive coordinator Mark Trestman really a QB whisperer?

When the Ravens named recently deposed Bears head coach Marc Trestman as their offensive coordinator this offseason, most viewed it as a seamless transition from the one-and-done Gary Kubiak. Coming off his best statistical season under Kubiak's guidance, Joe Flacco could continue to improve his game with the man nicknamed "The Quarterback Whisperer." Trestman earned the moniker...

Joe Flacco might have just found his next consistent target (video)

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman had the skills to pay the bills as a speedy and big bodied receiver at Central Florida, but it was one thing in particular that he lacked; a quality quarterback – a kryptonite for any promising receiver. Well, that will not be the case for Perriman as a Raven. He should be thanking the football gods for landing him in a spot...

Joe Flacco, Excellent and Under-Appreciated

When it comes to ranking quarterbacks, Joe Flacco is one of the more polarizing names in the NFL. Analysts either love the Ravens signal caller or they don’t, there is no middle ground as he divides the NFL community. Since entering the league, Flacco has had to prove himself from day one as he was not touted as the next great passer like Andrew Luck. There was not much respect...

The “Wacko” nickname has eventually took a toll on Joe Flacco’s reputation

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has accomplished a lot in his tenure with the Ravens, but sometimes you would think he’s incompetent based on critics. Last week, ESPN’s Mark Brunell put Flacco in the second tier of NFL quarterbacks — a list that included guys like Andy Dalton, Carson Palmer and Colin Kaepernick. How disrespectful can you be? How can one put a recent...

Who said Joe Flacco and Marc Trestman wouldn’t work?

Former Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak left the Ravens in the offseason, taking a head coaching job with the Denver Broncos. This move couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Ravens, just after their offense had its best offensive season in team history. Last season the offense broke its share of records and players seemed to pick up on Kubiak’s new philosophy...

Baltimore Ravens See Pass-Catching Potential in Rookie RB Buck Allen

When the Baltimore Ravens selected former USC running back Buck Allen in Round 4 of the 2015 NFL draft, they saw far more than just a player capable of carrying the football—they also saw a receiver. And for good reason. In college, he totaled 63 receptions for 710 yards and two scores in two years, adding to his 417 career carries for 2,306 yards and 25 touchdowns. And, based...

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is losing one of his key personnel people. National scout Joe Douglas is taking a job with the Bears as their college scouting director, the team announced Friday. Douglas has been with the Ravens organization for 15 years.

Why is no one talking about a Ravens receiver with “good hands and massive size?”

There’s a particular Baltimore Ravens wide receiver that had a standout rookie season in 2013, which has appeared to go unnoticed. Maybe that notable season went under the radar because it was the first season where the Ravens missed the playoffs since the coach Harbaugh and Joe Flacco era began. On a playoff team, 49 catches for 524 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie receiver...
