Ravens fire Cameron

After weeks of proclaiming the Ravens’ problems moving the ball were a product of just poor execution –- not talent or coaching -– coach John Harbuagh finally did some finger-pointing Monday by firing offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, a person with knowledge of the situation told CSN Baltimore.

Jim Caldwell, the quarterbacks coach in his first season with the Ravens after being fired as the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts last season, will take over the play-calling duties, the source said. The firing ends a five-year run for Cameron, who came to Baltimore with Harbaugh when he was hired in 2008.

The Ravens (9-4) are still in control of the AFC North but appear to be fading heading into the postseason. Their defense has been decimated by injuries but has done a reasonably good job considering they’re without Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Dannell Ellerbe, Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith.

They’ve lost their last two games by field goals to backup quarterbacks, including Sunday’s 31-28 overtime defeat at the Washington Redskins, and in each the offense sputtered in the second half under quarterback Joe Flacco.
