The Ravens have good, solid players at running back with Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon, but none of them can hit a home run or deliver explosive plays.
They aren’t the type of backs that you want to give the ball to 30 times a game. I’ve said this before and will say it again: The Ravens need some speed in the backfield, a change of pace back opposite of the four currently vying for playing time.
While on the subject of West, I knew that once he changed direction and scored against Carolina he was going to try it again against the Colts. Iit didn't work this week.
He needs to remember that the Ravens run a West Coast offense that features a downhill running game. Its one move and boom, square up the shoulders and hit the direct button.
West doesn’t have the type of speed to reverse field and go back against the grain, not often anyway. He is no Barry Sanders.
