BLOG: Sizing Up Ravens Coaching Changes

It’s been an interesting start to the off-season for the Ravens.  Hard to imagine a 13-5 team losing 3 coaches, none of whom depart for “better” jobs. Mattison went back to college, and Matsko and Zorn were fired.  I don’t read too much into the departure of the defensive coordinator, but the firing of the quarterback and o-line coaches tells you that the fans weren’t the only ones dissatisfied with the offense.  And that’s a good thing. It means the Ravens brass isn’t in denial. The offense underachieved, and these moves are meant to make it better.  The offensive line did not have a good year blocking or pass protecting; maybe Matsko is a scapegoat, or maybe he didn’t do a good enough job.  Flacco didn’t progress as much as people would have liked, and so it’s possible that Cam Cameron taking a more active role will be a good step.  The jury is out on both,  but don’t view it as a negative the coaching staff has been shaken up.
