Ravens Round Table: The One Thing We Want To See Change
Chris Schisler, Expert:
I want there to be a rhyme or reason to what this team does when their offense has the football. I want there to be some common sense that goes into the game plan. It’s a bad idea to have Joe Flacco throw the football fifty times or more in a game. The best players on the offense were Kenneth Dixon and Terrance West and they were the most seldom used players on the field.

I’m not saying that the Ravens have to run the rock on every play. The Ravens have a quarterback, we’re out of the Boller age. Flacco can be successful. You have to give him weapons, protection and a running game, but it can work. It worked in 2014, when he threw for 27 touchdowns and just 12 picks. It can work again. There just has to be a rhyme and a reason for the Ravens decision making.
I would love to see some talent inserted into the offense. I would be happier than a kitten in catnip if the Ravens had a legitimate number one receiver. What I really need though, is common sense to prevail. I need the Ravens to run an offense that sets plays up. I need the offense to be balanced and to keep the defense guessing. Most importantly, I want the offense to entertain me. The Ravens were frustrating, and sometimes agonizing to watch this past season. I really just wanted to give my grandmother the play-call sheet and see if she could do better. I don’t think it could be much worse and that’s the point. The offense has to start making sense, or the Ravens will be more infuriating than endearing to their fans.
