RAVENS CENTRAL

Online

The Kickoff

January 30, 2007|By MIKE PRESTON

I keep hearing that the Ravens should draft a scatback in the April draft.

Sorry, folks, that will work only if the Ravens change the offense. The Ravens have a power running game and need a power running back.

If you dump one of those little running backs back to this of fense, he's going to get hurt. The Ravens run basically nothing but leads and dive plays, all straight-ahead stuff.

If you want to use a shifty run ner, you have to get him out in space with tosses, sweeps, coun ters, misdirections. ... That's something I've been lobbying for for many years, and this offense isn't going to change.

So on Sundays, we'll keep sleep ing when the offense is on the field and cheering when the de fense is playing.
