    This stat alone shows you why Cam must go. We have a top 3 running back in the league along with an explosive rookie who as far as I know looks as though he could rip off a huge everytime he gets his hands on the football.plus a top 3 guard in the NFL...yet we're 23rd. We should be top five with our talent. Numbers don't lie.

    Re: Ravens 23rd in rushing.

    And a big ass FB who is the best lead blocker in the league bar none. We need to get back to our 08-09 ground and pound style baby! Draft some big Olinemen and run the fuck over everyone, make Rex Ryan the OC when he gets fired lol.

    But seriously, we need to get back to running the ball more effectively IMO. We need to improve the trenches next season.

    I just saw that we're 22nd in attempts - and the Falcons are the only team below us with a winning record (they seem to enjoy close contests as well).

    Ray Rice is ranked as the 13th most attempts in the NFL. WTF

    Re: Ravens 23rd in rushing.

    Wow good to know, agree with everything here. Maybe Cameron is saving rice for the playoffs? I'm tired of Cameron's ( or harbaughs) idea that we we need to transition with the rest of the league in the passing game. I agree to an extent but then why are the patriots who have one of the best passing attacks running the ball more and more as the season goes on? Stick with the bread and butter, run the ball run play action and roll outs. IMO we don't have the offensive scheme to become pass heavy. Receivers can't get separation, routes are too long, o line too inconsistent Etc etc

    A lot of teams split RB duties. You can't just look at the # of starter carries.

    Re: Ravens 23rd in rushing.

    In fairness there's been a lot of games rices running hasn't been getting it done for a number of reasons. But you still need balance, saying we are 22 in attempts mean nothing. We have dropped back to pass 463 times, and ran 297. That's a 60 40 split.

    We are not a pass heavy team as people like leach would lead you to believe. We run almost 25 times a game on average, dropping back to pass 39.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    Nah, this stat HAS to be wrong!

    Harbs guaranteed RavensNation that the Ravens were going to get back to their physical style of running the ball before season's start, so that stat is definitely wrong!! Since he also guaranteed that he was going to get more involved in the Offense, I don't believe this statistic!

    Re: Ravens 23rd in rushing.

    this alone is just beyond me, you sign yanda to a long term deal, you get biggest and best FB in game and you have diddle diddle up the middle and you are 23rd in rushing the ball??? Cam and Moeller should not only be fired but put on a boat in the middle of the ocean and targeted by a valkarie rocket.

    I think that one of the factors in that stat is our TOP. You can't rush a lot if you're never on the field.

    Sometimes they do. Or sometimes we're just basing conclusions off of the wrong set of numbers.

    I would also prefer to see them run the ball more often and more effectively, but I'm not sure it's fair to conclude Rice is underutilized. Top ten players ranked by total yards from scrimmage...
