    Caldwell's Style -- What to Expect (Merged from 3 Threads)



    Don't know much about Caldwell. Can someone fill me in on his philosophy offensively? His strengths and his weaknesses

    There is anticipation that Joe Flacco will get more flexibility in play calling at the LOS. Caldwell watched Peyton call alot @ LOS

    Re: Caldwell Style

    He only has experience calling plays as the HC at Wake Forrest, and he had terrible production out of his running game (his leading rusher got a mighty 300 yards one season). So hopefully that isn't the same with Ray Rice.

    Just expect Flacco to pretty much take control from here in the no huddle.

    This is when Flacco is at his best. But Caldwell can also call plays and has a better feel for the game and knows when to make adjustments. AND will stick to the run and not abandon it.

    He can call plays effectivly he did it in Indy I belive and Manning just changed it up if he saw something which was a lot. He will run the ball a lot but let Flacco have more control of the offense as far as changing the play at the line and will run more of a no huddle. Flacco will have more freedom but not what Manning had in Indy.

    He knows and he also knows that he has Ray Rice and wont abandon the run. The similar thing you will see is Flacco being able to change the play more often at the line, and sometimes call his own plays (not as often as Peyton) when running the no huddle. But still on 2nd and 3rd and longs caldwell will be calling the play with Flacco being able to change it if he sees something.

    He never called plays in Indi, he wasn't the OC, he was the QB coach, and then later the HC but he never called any plays.

    I'm not trying to being anal but exactly how can you make this declaration when he has zero experience as an NFL coordinator. Furthermore it's a known fact that Peyton mostly called the shots during his time at Indy with a few of Caldwell's calls sprinkled in.

    Caldwell didn't have Ray Rice at Wake Forest, remember that.
