He didn't have a Top 5 Defense this year- they were 17th overall. Schaubs Defense was at 7th Overall.
Run Game was 11th- Houston was at 8th
His "Two Major recievers" were ranked 32nd and 44th...Torrey Smith was 76th...I believe AJ was 4th???
Prclaims himself elite? You should read the interview- If you don't think your the best player on the field, then you are beaten before the first snap.
And which other Coordinator did he get fired? Cam Camron started with the Ravens in 08- same year Joe was drafted. Cam was hired by Billick then Billick got fired. Harbaugh inherited Cam. Cam got himself fired with his controlling attitude- he LIMITED Flacco, not gave him a reasonable workload.
my bad. 17th ... the ravens defense is worse than average, and an obvious cake walk in the playoffs. the run game is barely above-par ... i mock the ravens drafting a running back this year to replace that what's his name who's holding their run game back. as for their receivers, i wouldnt want them on my team - even the ravens fans think they're scrubs. it's not as if their #2 receiver has more touchdowns than the texans receivers combined.
to the public, cam got fired for not giving the ball to ray rice every down - instead asking flacco to carry the load. i dont even recall this year's OC, but the same thing is perception ... he tried to install a hurry up offense to give flacco more control and it bombed quickly. basically the same applied in both cases. ray rice wins games, only give flacco what is necessary. and quit getting butthurt about it, we do the same with foster and schaub.
