Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco need to put up or shut up on the road

November 02, 2012 | Josh Michael

Let me let you in on a little secret, the Ravens offense is absolutely abysmal on the road, I would use a more emphatic word there but I am trying to keep this PG-13. For the past three or four weeks all we have heard from Flacco and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is that they are not going away from the no-huddle and they will make the adjustments….well where are they? Myself, along with all the Ravens fans out there better see something this weekend.

Here is one that needs to be made, give the ball to your best offensive player Ray Rice! Not saying you need to run the ball 100 times a game, but give him the ball 20-25 times and allow him to set up your play action. Flacco is great out of the play action, but it doesn’t work when you never actually hand the ball off. Also, run the football out of the shot gun, can’t figure out why Flacco keeps getting sacked on the road? Newsflash, if you never run the ball out of the shotgun, the defense will pin their ears back go after the quarterback whenever he is in the shotgun, even football video game defenses do that!

Having said all of that, I still believe Baltimore is playoff team that can go deep, but if we can’t perform on the road, we are not going to the Super Bowl. Let’s go Ravens!
