In 2008 the offensive side of the ball was revolutionized by the Miami Dolphins when they installed what became know as the Wildcat Formations. Following in their wake various teams have installed similar systems; the Baltimore Ravens have had perhaps the most success. This package gained popularity when 6 foot 6 rookie quarterback Joe Flacco caught a 43 yard catch from Troy Smith. Raven’s TE L.J. Smith told a local Baltimore camp that, ex Ohio State Heisman Trophy winner, Troy Smith will be involved a bit more in the offense this year.
“Troy Smith is a great player, and he has helped me adjust to the locker room [L.J. is in his first year with the Raven's organization], and I won’t say too much but look for [Troy Smith] to be involved a lot more this year. He is the real deal”
I don’t know about you, but I was extremely excited to here this. Smith is an undersized, yet athletic quarterback who, in my opinion, deserves a chance. So tune into the Raven’s season to see what offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has up his sleeve.
