OWINGS MILLS, Md. – One day after the quarterback Lamar Jackson He said that the defenses shouted Baltimore Ravens games, the attacking coordinator Greg Roman made him up to the usual chess match that takes place during the games.
“Playing defense games is nothing new,” Romeo said on Thursday. Sometimes they will be right [and] sometimes they will be wrong. I think we know that. But this is definitely an element of the game. It always has been and probably always will be. “
The Ravens offense is in the middle of a significant drop from last season, falling from No. 2 in yards per game in 2019 to No. 23 in the middle of the 2020 season. On Wednesday, Jackson told “The Rich Eisen Show” that Baltimore is very predictable of attack, saying, “they shout our games, things like that. They know what we’re doing.”
Asked for key NFL MVP comments, Roman gave a two-minute answer that began with how Jackson is a great contender who wants to win every game and every game.
“It definitely gives me feedback on when people shout something and what else,” Romeo said. “This is definitely part of what we are talking about.”
Is Jackson allowed to be heard when he hears defenders shouting games?
“There are definitely some projects where these headphones are available and built-in,” Romeo said. “Some quarterbacks are heard or have the freedom to hear every game. Sometimes that works well for them, sometimes it doesn’t. Some people don’t do it at all. I would say we are somewhere in between.”
Ravens matches can not be blamed for playcalling. Injuries have hit the offensive line, where two starters – left counterattack Ronnie Stanley and right guard Tire Phillips – are in injured reserve. This comes after the departure of right-wing Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda in the offseason. In addition, Jackson has been more inaccurate this season (26th) and Baltimore’s big receivers have almost as many falls through eight games this year (nine) as last season (10).
Still, there has been growing frustration with Baltimore attacking this season. After the 28-24 loss to the Ravens by the Pittsburgh Steelers on November 1, wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown vented to a tweet that has been deleted since he is not used enough to the game he is going through. Now Jackson has made it clear that Baltimore is too deliberate to attack.
“We know a lot about our trends,” Romeo said. “We know there are a few right now, and that’s where it gets interesting. When you’re good at something and you can keep pushing that button, then you have the opportunity to turn the script around at some point.”
