“I do not think that we are going to be successfull putting the ball in the air 600-and-some times,” Owner Steve Bisciotti said. “It is just not our identity, and I do not know how we got that far away from it.”

The statement above, as already quoted, needs more notice. This is the owner of the Baltimore Ravens, sitting beside President Dick Cass, General Manager Ozzie Newsome and Head Coach John Harbaugh, stating his confusion over his own team. The dilemna of the Baltimore Ravens and their absolute refusal to perform their known identity for the past 21 years, running the football.

There is a reason, and we do know it involves former offensive coordinator Marc Trestman and current OC Marty Mornhinweg. We also know Joe Flacco is another big cause.

On Tuesday, during the “State of the Ravens” press conference, Steve Bisciotti was asked about the decision to bring Marty back for 2017 season.

“My quarterback seems happy with it,” Bisciotti responded.

Clearly it wasn’t Steve’s final say which kept the coordinator around; the answer was the best deflection without coming right out with it. He’s allowing Marty to stay because the quarterback with a contract worth $80 million through 2021 said so.
