Fairly or not, Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has been a lightning rod this season, catching flak when the offense struggles as it did in the team’s three losses and getting tepid acknowledgment when the offense explodes as it did against the Pittsburgh Steelers, St. Louis Rams, Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals.
There has been speculation that if the Ravens don’t reach the playoffs or fare poorly once there, Cameron’s employment with the Ravens may come to an end after the season.
But that’s of little consequence to coach John Harbaugh, who was asked about Cameron’s play-calling this season.
“I think all of our coaches have done a great job,” Harbaugh said during his weekly conference Monday. “I think Cam has done a great job, I think [defensive coordinator] Chuck [Pagano] has done a great job, [special teams coordinator] Jerry [Rosburg] has done a great job, right down through all the assistant coaches. Every year is a tough year. Every year brings us different challenges, and I think what you try to do as a coach, [you] try to address those challenges as they come up. And all three phases, and offense, certainly with the young guys we have had out there, and the new guys we have had out there on the offensive line, have presented some unique challenges. I think the offensive coaches have done a great job. Cam has done a great job with leading that side of it. We’ve had to kind of search for – week to week – ways to find a way to do the best we can to win football games. Sometimes we’ve done better than other times – all of us. So that’s where we’re at.”Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
