KIDZ KORNER: Good riddance Cam, congrats Jim!

The loss to the Washington Redskins turned out to be the greatest loss in the history of the Ravens. Let’s be honest, if the Ravens win on Sunday, Cam Cameron is still in Baltimore. And while you never want to lose, it’s for the better that we did.

After five years of boring and uncreative play calling Baltimore finally has its dream come true. Jim Caldwell: it’s time to help Ravens Nation forget and move on.

Caldwell, who coached with Peyton Manning for nine years, will get his chance to greatly improve the offensive play calling. Some might view the move as an audition but the feeling around the league is that this was planned. When the Ravens brought in Caldwell over the offseason as a QB coach, they obviously had bigger and better things planned for him.

It may take a few weeks for Caldwell to fully click with the play calls, but by the postseason things should be in full motion.

Even though this is Caldwell’s first O-Coordinator job, you will most definitely see a couple of things change.

Don’t be surprised if things start with a heavy dose of No-Huddle. When in Indianapolis, the No-Huddle was run in full effect. Even though it was with Peyton Manning, things could look quite the same with Joe Flacco. Flacco has shown that he is very comfortable running the No Huddle. In fact, Flacco seems to thrive running that type of up-tempo offense.

Look for the receivers and tight ends to be open more often for a more explosive pass offense. Now that Cameron has hit the road, so has his horrible route tree.

No longer will you see just out routes and straight fly patterns. With the new Caldwell Offense, expect the middle of the field to play a more prevalent role in the game plan. This team has weapons all across the board. Cam Cameron seemed to miss that.

You can also expect many explosive plays this Sunday against Denver. Remember, Peyton Manning is on the other side of the field and Jim Caldwell would love nothing more than to beat his former QB. Caldwell should look to dial up explosive plays to keep pace with the future Hall of Famer.
