After 6 games with Brian Billick as the Offensive Coordinator BTN thinks it’s safe to say the running game just won’t get going this year. The per rush average is exactly the same as when Jim Fassel was running the offense at 3.5.  The trend of being less efficient in the Red Zone will also need to change if the Ravens want to make a deep run in the playoffs.  Of all the teams with a winning record the Ravens rank dead last in the Red Zone at 42.50%.
Check back next week to see if the trends continue.
