3. Terrance West

I know, this is the third offensive player, and the defense is the good part of this team. Number one and two play defense, and I think highlighting the positives of the offense might help everyone sleep a little easier.

Until the disastrous Jets game, Terrance West dominated as the starter. West even looked impressive in games they refused to give him the ball. In the first three games as the starter, West ran the ball 55 times for 295 yards. That’s good for 5.36 yards per carry.

This guy joined the team last year to help an injury ravaged roster. The Titans and Browns cut West before he joined the Ravens which might indicate his career trajectory. During the preseason, he looked like a different player. He continued that play into the regular season and beat out Justin Forsett for the starting job.

Hopefully, the game against the Jets turns out to be an anomaly (and I think that is all it was). The recent extended team meeting hopefully straightens out some of the offensive woes, and Terrence West becomes the Baltimore Ravens main offensive weapon. He plays hard and deserves a starring role on this team.
