Marshal Yanda excited about new offensive coaching staff

Marshal Yanda told BaltimoreRavens.com that the new offensive coaching staff is a "breath of fresh air." - USA TODAY Sports

Called the group a "breath of fresh air."

Marshal Yanda was once again named to the Pro Bowl this past season. But that doesn't mean he was exempt from any blame for the poor performance the Ravens' offensive line put in a year ago.

Looking back, the season seemed to be a fluke. How could an offensive line known for getting after folks all of a sudden fail to block, fail to attack and fail to communicate? The Ravens have addressed their No. 1 personnel need on the offensive line by trading for Jeremy Zuttah.

Now they need to find a right tackle, though Rick Wagner is the leading candidate at this time.

Yanda acknowledged the poor season Baltimore put in. But with the organization hiring offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, Yanda told BaltimoreRavens.com that bringing in a new system could be just what the Ravens need to get back on track.

"It’s a new year, a new start with Gary. It’s a breath of fresh air to have some new guys in there. It should be good."

The Ravens were only able to muster 1,328 rushing yards in 2013. That's a number that wont fly with the Ravens next season.
