If you got Sunday's paper delivered to your doorstep or you checked our website over the weekend, hopefully you read my story on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco and why he has one of the NFL's strongest arms . I spoke with some insightful men for the story. ESPN's Ron Jaworski, who invited Flacco to play in his celebrity golf tournament this offseason, said that people don't realize how much a “complete set of mechanics” help Flacco fire the football down the field.

When training camp started last season, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was friendly and happy. He joked with teammates more than usual and was more animated and vocal. At that time, a lot of us thought his leadership was emerging because the Ravens had lost linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ed Reed. And then Flacco went on to throw a career-high 22 interceptions in one of his worst seasons ever. So far in minicamp, Flacco is back to the Flacco of old. He isn't joking a lot and appears to be more standoffish.

Thanks for Kevin Cowherd 's recent column on Cam Cameron ("Finishing just shy of Super Bowl is no reason to can Cameron," Jan. 27). Every week our family looked forward to watching the Ravens. Their fantastic playing was due to teamwork among the coaches and players. We are sad to be losing Chuck Pagano; the Ravens were right not to let Mr. Cameron go as well. The Ravens had an outstanding year. To keep it going next year we need to keep Mr. Cameron as our offensive coordinator.

The Ravens hired one of the best offensive minds in the NFL as Gary Kubiak was named the team's offensive coordinator , but don't expect miracles in the 2014 season. Kubiak has put together some prolific offenses during his 21-year coaching career, but the Ravens don't have all the pieces in place for the type of highly efficient offense he wants to run. It's not just finding star players, but putting together a scheme, terminology and working out other nuances for an offense which has West Coast principles.

According to offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, there were only six plays from last week's win over the Texans where Flacco didn't receive a “plus” grade from the team's offensive coaching staff. Cameron, who boasted about being a hard grader, said Flacco's biggest issues during the game were footwork and ball security. Flacco fumbled once, but left guard Ben Grubbs pounced on it. “He played at an extremely high level against a very good defense,” Cameron said. “Again, that's through my eyes, and those are the eyes -- and his, us collectively -- those are the ones that matter to us, because we know what we are trying to get done.” Cameron said that there were 12 plays in the game where Flacco either audibled into the “exact audible that he needed” or made the right decision in a play-call package with multiple options.

I was asked on "The Norris and Davis Show" on 105.7 The Fan this morning if I thought Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameronwould be back next season. The short answer is: I do. Sure, Cameron and his play-calling have been the subject of much scrutiny -- and scorn -- from lots of Ravens fans over the last few years. And the state of his relationship with quarterback Joe Flacco has also been endlessly debated. (For the record, I don't think it's nearly as tense and adversarial as some people think.)

Baltimore Sun staff members weigh in on the Ravens' decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replace him with Jim Caldwell. Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens reporter: As much heat as Cameron has gotten over the past couple of years, today's news is still surprising. The Ravens don't usually make drastic moves like this especially at this stage of the season. But it's clear that the frustration by the team's key offensive players was mounting. Ray Rice was furious after Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins.

No matter how the Ravens spin this one, the firing of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron with just three games left in the regular season smacks of panic. Panic and desperation. There's no other way to read it. We'll probably never know for sure exactly what got Cameron fired in his fifth season running the Ravens' offense. But we can guess at some of the factors. The inconsistency of the offense is obviously the main factor, especially after two dismal losses in a row to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Washington Redskins.

After the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft Saturday, Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron made a cameo at the introductory press conference for Courtney Upshaw, Kelechi Osemele and Bernard Pierce. In addition to Kelechi, an Iowa State offensive lineman, and Pierce, the big Temple back, the Ravens had just drafted him another offensive player in Delaware center Gino Gradkowski. Cameron was pleased with what general manager Ozzie Newsome had done at that point. He liked the selection of Pierce, though he said that the team is still high on Anthony Allen and Damien Berry.

Maybe if Lee Evans had held onto that touchdown pass in the AFC title game, Cam Cameron would still be the offensive coordinator of the Ravens. Maybe if Joe Flacco had a slightly faster mental stopwatch when he's in the pocket, the Ravens would be 10-3 and it would be business as usual this week at the Ravens facility. There are all sorts of things that led up to the decision to replace Cameron with quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell, but if I had to guess, I think it came down to what everybody saw on Sunday at Fed Ex Field.

It was a whirlwind couple of days for Gary Kubiak after arriving in Baltimore on Sunday. Ravens coach John Harbaugh sold him on his vacant offensive coordinator position over dinner -- and presumably a fine bottle of wine -- at his Baltimore County home that night and Kubiak and the Ravens spent much of Monday finalizing the terms of his new contract and discussing how their offense might come together in the coming months before Kubiak was introduced to...

Even as the Ravens' search for an offensive coordinator appears to be moving away from him, former Detroit Lions assistant Scott Linehan would be their best option. On paper, Linehan has more experience than the three candidates who are reportedly in the running for the job: Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler, Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson and former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. As of midday Thursday, Linehan had not been scheduled for a second interview, according to a league source.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said there was an outpouring of candidates for the team's offensive coordinator position, which was expected, since the Ravens are one of the NFL's top franchises. There are some impressive names floating around, like Gary Kubiak and Norv Turner, both of whom won Super Bowl s while working with some of football's greatest players. But whoever takes the job won't have that type of talent to work with. The new coordinator had better be prepared to bring a lunch pail, roll up his sleeves and do some heavy lifting.

With the Detroit Lions announcing that Jim Caldwell has been hired to be their next head coach , the Ravens are now in need of a new offensive coordinator. But despite the Ravens finishing 29th in total offense, one would think they won't choose a replacement who wants to make radical schematic changes. The new coordinator's biggest priority will be getting the most out of quarterback Joe Flacco, who is a year into the monster contract extension he signed last season. While the Ravens need to get their running game going and they must find ways to get their wide receivers open, the centerpiece of this offense has to be Flacco, who can attack defenses all over the field with a right arm that is among the NFL's strongest . The vertical passing game the Ravens have relied on the past couple of seasons -- you know, the one that helped them win the Super Bowl just over a year ago, with Caldwell calling the plays -- features a lot of lower-percentage passes, but each one that Flacco uncorks potentially has a very high reward.

Each week, Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston will answer questions from readers about the Ravens . You can submit questions during every game to sports@baltimoresun.com. Here are this week's questions and answers: Why in the world did the Ravens attempt a field goal on fourth-and-5 at the beginning of the fourth quarter and down by 20 points? Maybe I've missed it, but I have not seen anyone taking John Harbaugh to task for that decision. But that was just terrible.

If Joe Flacco has it his way, the Ravens' experimentation with a two-quarterback offense would officially be over. After being relegated to a mere spectator on a handful of plays in the Ravens' 19-3 victory over the New York Jets, the Super Bowl XLVII Most Valuable Player and the owner of the largest contract in franchise history reiterated his feelings about the wildcat offense Tuesday, going as far as to say that it makes the Ravens look like...

In the aftermath of the Ravens' crushing 31-24 loss at Pittsburgh in the divisional playoffs, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said he still believes the Ravens can develop into a championship offense and wants to be here to help it reach that level. The Ravens offense is taking as many hits from the fan base as it did from the Steelers on Saturday. It turned the ball over three times in the third quarter, dropping two critical passes in the fourth quarter and managing 126 total yards — the fewest in the Ravens' 15-game postseason history and the third-lowest in the team's existence.

Somewhere in the splendor of a fall day in New England, the magic of the moment dissipated and the Ravens let a hard-earned opportunity slip away. Seven seconds into the fourth quarter Sunday, attacking at every turn, they had a well-deserved 10-point lead over the Patriots. Then, in the next 28 minutes of scoreboard clock time, the Ravens backpedaled to a 23-20 overtime loss. Repercussions are still bubbling in Baltimore. Some critics think conservatism reared its ugly head in Gillette Stadium.

In the college football world, there wasn't a better coaching hire this past offseason than Cam Cameron. Those aren't my words. Those are the words of Sporting News senior writer Matt Hayes , who recently wrote that "there's not a single coach who has done more for a team's championship hopes than the man who, when we last saw him in college football, was being run out of town at, of all places, Indiana.” Cameron was run out of Baltimore, too,...
