OWINGS MILLS, MD. — It’s not as though these birds were living on feeder droppings during the regular season. The Ravens scored 44 points in the opener against the Bengals, 31 on both the Patriots and Cowboys, and hung 55 on the Raiders. But now that it’s January and Baltimore has piled up 62 in two playoff games comes the question: All this because of one coaching change?
Cam Cameron, who’d been the offensive coordinator for five seasons, is fired after last month’s overtime loss to the Redskins. Jim Caldwell, the quarterbacks coach, takes over and the Ravens become playoff raptors, setting franchise postseason records for total offense against both the Colts and Broncos. Did somebody rewrite the playbook?
