Reason #3 – The Ravens replaced one talented offensive genius with another

Losing Gary Kubiak was a huge blow to the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive prospects for 2015.  The zone blocking guru completely rejuvenated a deflated running game and turned Joe Flacco into something he has never been before – a consistently accurate thrower.

But the Ravens were lucky to scoop up another talented offensive guru to take his place – Marc Trestman.  After working his magic in Chicago as a head coach and turning Jay Cutler from a toad into a prince, Trestman had a rough 2014 with a dysfunctional franchise that ended with him hitting the unemployment line.

The Ravens have promised to keep Kubiak’s scheme intact in 2015, at least in terms of the zone blocking elements.  It’s a smart move, but don’t be surprised to see some changes as well.  With a proven commodity in Trestman, the Ravens shouldn’t have any problem at least matching last year’s offensive production.
