Cam Cameron and offense looking to “execute better”

Flacco Cameron

The road woes of the Ravens have been well documented, as it’s clear they aren’t the same team outside the confines of M&T Bank Stadium.

Expecting their offense to click on all cylinders isn’t unrealistic for the Ravens, because they’ve seen how effective it can be when executed properly.

“The great thing for us as an offense, us as a team and for all the Ravens fans, is that we know what this offense can be,” said offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.

“We know what we want it to look like, we know what it feels like when it’s being executed, because we see it at M&T [Bank Stadium].”

Communication is something Cameron and members of the Ravens offense have stave as being a problem and something they’re working on coming out of their bye week.

“We’re looking at everything from a communication standpoint, how we can make sure, on the road, that we’re on the same page.” Cameron said.

“It might be any combination – it could be in the passing game, it could be in protection, it could be in the run game.

Cameron reflected on the team’s struggles but couldn’t really find anything on the surface to blame for the Ravens’ road struggles aside from crowd noise.

“We know it’s not weather because we’ve had great weather on the road. Obviously, you could look at the surface. I would think… we practice on grass every day; I’m not going to say [it’s] turf vs. grass. Then you say crowd noise, and I think some things surface there.”

When it comes to scoring points, Cameron’s offenses are night and day. The Ravens have played one more game at home than on the road but have scored ten more touchdowns in Baltimore than they have away.

“Bottom line is [we must] execute better. But the number one thing, let’s be on the same page, first and foremost.”

The Ravens have won their last nine meetings against the Browns. As a starter, Ray Rice has never had fewer than 20 carries and in nine career games, Joe Flacco has only thrown five interceptions against the Browns.

If communication is the issue and it needs to be fixed, there’s no better time than now to do it.

    It sounds to me that Cam doesn’t know what the problem is, so he blames it on the crowd noise. I’m sure M&T is just as loud or louder then other stadiums. Crowd noise sounds like a lame exuse to me.

    This offense will remain inconsistent as long as the inept Cameron remains the coordinator! Been that way every year he’s been here and not likely to change any time soon!
