    3rd and 3, passing out of the shotgun. That's all there is to know about Cam Cameron.

    They were down multiple scores almost the entire game. When you're fighting the clock, you have to try to get yards in bunches and that only happens through the air. This is the NFL.

    By the way, they gave Rice the ball a couple times in the 3rd and 4th quarters. He ran for 1, 6, and 0 yards. They passed him the ball 3 times, for -2, 3, and -3 yards.

    That's a net of 5 yards on 6 touches. That's not very good. Maybe they could have gotten Rice the ball a few more times, but clearly the Texans were trying to take him away and were wildly successful at it.

    He should have got it the third and three after the strip sack in the ez we recovered. I still can't understand how Barwin was untouched.

    There was numerous times joe was hit in under three seconds.

    That's the perfect game for running back and WR screens.

    Screens? Cam doesn't call them until late in the 4th of a losing effort....he has to be the slowest OC at switching things up in the NFL.

    But you gotta have an offensive coordinator who understands that and makes adjustments. We have Cam! As someone on another post just said "that's all you need to know."

    The WR/TE screen was open all day long. When they went to that play in the 4th quarter it produced good gains. That was partly due to the Texans playing prevent defense, but the Doss TD play was a WR screen called against a man-to-man blitz.

    They seemed to be spying Rice a lot which took away some of that screen game, but they still had options they could have moved to after the offensive gameplan wasn't working. They did not make use of those options enough.

    Well if they had tried to establish the run early, instead of getting sacked in the end zone or throwing pick-6's they might not have been down multiple scores.

    Apparantly Cam's game plan revolved around throwing the ball like Aaron Rodgers. Unfortunately for Cam, Aaron Rodgers was in Missouri today.

    rice had 3 carries for 27 yds on the ravens first drive of the game and they went up 3-0, after that he ran the ball 3 more times the entire first half....completely unacceptable

    This offense put points on them last season when they gave Rice his touches. Going pass happy with Flacco against the Texans D, or any good D besides the Steelers will only get you destroyed. This offense runs through Ray Rice, not Joe Flacco.

    I too was upset they decided to abandon the run so quickly. This team doesn't lose by 30 points if the playcallers on the Ravens sideline don't panic and go into passing mode that saw more batted balls than a fem-dom porno.

    WRONG. They had SIX possessions and it was still 16-3, in the first half. NO EXCUSE not to run the ball. I'm not talking run it up the middle either. Pitch it to Rice or something. All I saw in the first half was passes to the right side wide out and 80% of them were tipped.
