Baltimore Ravens: 3 Problems Other Than Marc Trestman
2. Offensive Line Musical Chairs
When the offensive line is banged up, good things aren’t always going to happen. Ronnie Stanley has missed two consecutive games. Alex Lewis had to move to left tackle yesterday, and John Urschel played his first football of the season. Then Rick Wagner left the game and Marshall Yanda had to move to right tackle. When this happened, the Ravens put Ryan Jensen in there.
The offensive line didn’t give Joe Flacco a lot of help at critical points in the game. The Ravens offensive line has been problematic all season; Flacco has been sacked 11 times so far. Yesterday the Redskins sacked Flacco three times, and they almost had a few more.
The offensive line has had it’s problems but they were run blocking well yesterday. If Trestman would have stuck to the ground game, the offensive line would have been less troubling. I’m sorry to bring up Trestman. It’s just that I’m saltier than the tortilla chip at the bottom of the bag.
