I believe you’ve just won the Internets, UM.
Oddly enough, Flacco hasn’t taken a lot of shit on the talk radio shows this week. Cam Cameron, on the other hand, is public enema number one.
Cameron is an idiot; he can’t get his receivers to get separation or make them catch the ball when it is right in their hands; his fault.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens have left OC Cam Cameron in the dark on his status for 2012.
Cameron’s contract is up, he’s receiving heat for drawing up a crunch-time play to feature Lee Evans, and his relationship with Joe Flacco is frosty. NFL Films guru Greg Cosell has criticized Cameron’s offense as “static, inert, predictable” and “not difficult to defend tactically,” suggesting it’s “misguided” to criticize Flacco for the unit’s inconsistent performance during the 2011 season.

It’s FROSTY people, FROSTY!! Wendy’s FROSTY! In the dark too.
@Moose – actually if you look at the Bengals from 2000-2010 under Bob Bratkowski versus the 2011 Jay Gruden iteration, you’ll see how a bad offensive coordinator who uses a very simple route tree and predictable playcalling makes it very, very difficult for his receivers to get separation. The drop thing I’ll agree with, but at least part of the blame for the separation falls to Cameron for making it (fairly) easy to defend any Baltimore receiver who’s not Torrey Smith on a fly route.
I agree with that to a certain extent; especially when routes and rout combinations are predictable the coverage knows what to focus on. HOWEVER, there is a time when there is a physical match-up in man coverage and the better receivers also can overcome zone coverage by individually reading the splits. Boldin seems to me to be the only one on the team doing that consistently and Rice does it a certain amount underneath. Watching what coach film they show on NFL Matchup and Playbook, Cameron can and does design good route combinations and has been a coordinator for some top ten passing teams.
I think his failing is not fully understanding and utilizing the talents of his QBs and receivers. I also think he does not adjust well to those individual’s respective limitations.
So, OK fire his ass, but they better have a back-up plan and someone better in mind. When you fire someone and the outcome is the same or the disruption or new person makes things worse, you have a problem.
I thought Harbaugh was holding Flacco’s hand there for a second.
seriously. but i realized they weren’t, when they weren’t smiling and skipping together.
Joe Flacco is gonna by a farm and get all existential in the off season, and then kick off training camp by throwing a hoe-down and giving his wide receivers tractor pull rides, and then they all take turns feeding babies that were born out of wedlock to the combine to appease Chthulu!
Is that what Favre used to do?
How the fuck should I know? I’m a fat, drunk hick from Iowa, not a fat drunk hick from Wisconsin!
I apologize for lumping you in with those reprobates.
Is that what . . . uhhh . . . Kirk Ferentz used to do?
/stab in the dark
I was thinking Flacco and the offense would burn Cam Cameron in a giant wicker man, it was just a theory.
“/stab in the dark” Nice Lewis reference, nice.
How do you know what people on the east coast do? We don’t really like farming. We prefer to throw babies in the ocean where they be ripped apart by schools of famished bluefish.
What about gardening in New Jersey?
Judging from the smile on Tom Coughlin’s face, it appears you’ve upgraded from MS Paint to Photoshop CS5, Maj.
I figured the same thing from the expert hue adjustment job on Coughlin’s not-red face.
Colonel Coughlin strikes again!
Damn the Giants get to fly in a big plane.
Yeah, but that big plane is heading to Indianapolis.
It’s like going out with a hot girl who’s taken one of those chastity pledges. Sure, it’ll look cool, but deep down inside you know it’s going absolutely nowhere.
There is no “deep down inside.”
Otto Man, you’ve got to embrace challenges like that. Sure, she might have taken a chastity pledge, but who’s to say it wasn’t just due to peer pressure? Maybe she’s a libertine just waiting for someone to give her an excuse.

Anal; the last loopHOLE in the pledge.
No Ducks for Chalky White; it makes much more sense in this post, that didn’t stop me from responding there.
Kraft could have used you at the game, Maj. Nobody had the balls to tell him.
