If you want to trace part of the Ravens' recent problems, look no further than the Jacksonville Jaguars, the opponent in tomorrow's game at Alltel Stadium. Over the years, the Ravens have lost some outstanding coaches such as Marvin Lewis, Donnie Henderson, Mike Nolan, Jack Del Rio and such excellent personnel as the Modells, Phil Savage and James Harris. Harris, the Ravens' former director of pro personnel, is now the president of the Jaguars. Along with Del Rio, Jacksonville's coach, the Jaguars (5-3)

Forget Banks, Dilfer; give Redman a chance Forget this year. The Ravens aren't going anywhere with Tony Banks or Trent Dilfer at quarterback. Neither could hit an 18-wheeler on a crossing pattern. Even if the Ravens somehow manage to luck into the playoffs because of a soft second-half schedule, it'll be one game and out. In the playoffs, the Ravens will be facing good defenses. Neither Banks nor Dilfer is capable of defeating a good defense. It's time for Chris Redman. Coach Brian Billick says he won't go with an inexperienced rookie.

Matt Cavanaugh won't return as the Ravens' offensive coordinator after the struggles with the team's attack reached an all-time low, coach Brian Billick announced yesterday. The first major change came 19 hours after the Ravens wrapped up a disappointing 9-7 season and ranked 31st (out of 32 NFL teams) in offense, the worst finish in the franchise's nine-year history. In an 11 a.m. face-to-face meeting with Cavanaugh, Billick said they reached a "mutual" decision for his longtime assistant to leave the team.

Billick, Cavanaugh share blame for offense Sports analysts have bought into the Brian Billick line once again. Kyle Boller is not the issue with the Ravens' offense. He is just one of a half dozen or more quarterback failures under Billick and offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh. Look to the men at the top, not the player on the field. The Ravens' offense is plain vanilla. I doubt defenses even waste their time studying films before Ravens games. Billick is still mesmerized by his Vikings offense, but just throwing the ball in the air and letting Randy Moss catch it doesn't work here.

MIAMI -- Ravens coach Brian Billick calls himself a good salesman, and he proved it yesterday by selling Matt Cavanaugh on the idea of becoming his offensive coordinator.Billick announced at a news conference that Cavanaugh picked the Ravens over the Jaguars, even though the Jacksonville coordinator gets to call the plays and three Jacksonville assistant coaches (Kevin Gilbride, Chris Palmer and Dick Jauron) have gone on to become head coaches.By contrast, Billick will call his own plays and he compared Cavanaugh's role to the one Gary Kubiak has in Denver under Mike Shanahan and Sherm Lewis had in Green Bay under Mike Holmgren.

Ravens coach Brian Billick said yesterday he will let offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh call the plays for the third straight week. There isn't any problem between Billick or Cavanaugh, but Billick discussed the situation publicly for the first time yesterday. When Billick was named coach in January, he said he would call the plays and re-interated that again in training camp. Billick gave the duties to Cavanaugh against the Cleveland Browns and the Ravens were a 41-9 winner.
