Baltimore Ravens likely to retain Greg Roman, Don Martindale
Despite heavy interest in both of the Baltimore Ravens coordinators as head coach candidates, both Greg Roman and Don Martindale could be back in 2020.
Greg Roman and Don Martindale were outstanding coordinating the Baltimore Ravens offense and defense respectively. They did so well, in fact, that teams around the NFL in need of a new head coach were interested in interviewing the two for said position’s vacancy.
Following the infamous “Black Monday,” a day when teams often fire head coaches, general managers, and other team staff employees, there were quite a few tempting jobs to be had. The list included the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, and the Cleveland Browns. The Washington Redskins also had a position open.
Of the above teams, only one has yet to hire their next head coach… and while we aren’t ruling out said team (the Browns) just yet, it appears that the Ravens will be retaining both Roman and Martindale despite heavy interest from opposing teams.
This is huge news for the Super Bowl-contending Baltimore Ravens. With the way the roster and coaching staff is built right now the window is wide open for multiple championships. Lamar Jackson has flourished under Roman’s scheme, while the defense has a special swagger to them thanks to “Wink” Martindale.
Part of the reason that the Ravens are the most fun team to watch right now is because of how well-coached they are. Credit must absolutely be attributed by Coach of the Year front-runner John Harbaugh, but his coordinators have coached their butts off.
As previously mentioned with Martindale, Baltimore as a whole has a certain attitude to them; one that has drawn in quite the bandwagon. The team has a brandish attitude. The Ravens are winners and have fun doing it. Between Jackson’s highlight-reel plays, amazing press conferences from Mark Ingram, a body built by Taco Bell, and so many other genuine moments, these 2019 Baltimore Ravens have everything you want, and it’s because they’re buying into what the coaches are all about.
When you have a philosophy that gets guys to rally around you, you have teams like the 2019 Baltimore Ravens. With Greg Roman and Don Martindale likely back for 2020 and beyond, there’s plenty of reason to believe that this team’s unique attitude will continue after this year.
