It's certainly bold to fire Cam now. Maybe even questionable. But desperate? Come on.

As I've said all along... we would never fire Cam when we are winning. It doesn't make sense to the outside public to fire an OC after losing in the AFC title game the year before, even though that's exactly what should have happened.
It's desperation because now we finally found the correct time. The offense has been sputtering of late, and Cam has never had a desire to bury a team when we had a lead.
Make no mistake, if we had won each of the last two games, we wouldn't have fired him. But we were given the excuse that we needed to do what we should have done long ago.

Best of luck to Cam down the road.

Perfectly stated brother.
people outside of baltimore don't know what we have had to put up with for 3 years, they think we are trying to blame cam cameron for the past 2 losses and that we are desperate but that isnt the case, this should have been done back when jim zorn was joes qb coach and it was obvious to anybody with a brain that jim was fired because cam cameron felt his job was in jeopardy the timing of this firing was off though it should have been done after last weeks loss to pittsburgh with not giving rice the ball in the 4th quarter, it comes off as wrong to everyone else around the league because we fired him after a pretty decent outing against washington offense wise, regardless i am glad we are moving on

The #1 reason we got rid of Cam, is to get an accurate assessment of Flacco. I think letting go of Cameron is Ozzie saying "let's see what we have in Flacco, now we can see how he has progressed now that he's on his own before long term extension."

Now it's time to move on. No more excuses. We gotta beat Denver this week, and nothing else matters for the Ravens!

Why? Because all of our problems will be solved defensively, once the offense gets it's act together... period the end!
The offense's inability to move the ball at times, because of stupid play calling that everybody and their mothers were able to see coming before the Ravens ran the plays has been a problem for years. No creativity. No quick slant passes. Give the offense to Flacco! And Flaccster, a pump fake every now and then would help your cause considerably!
We WILL beat Denver. Payton Manning is not RG3. RG3 is the reason they were able to be so successful running the ball against our Defense, because of the option, and threat that kid would take off running -- it also freezes the linebackers from dropping back into pass coverage. With Denver, even though Payton's a fantastic QB, he's still a drop back passer, which we can handle, especially if the offense makes plays and keeps him off the field. And I still believe we own the Giants!
Finally, this Sunday, we will see our real offense take the field. The Rice/Pierce combo is too much for Denver to handle -- too much!

Joe E-Lite and Rut-Roh have been frustrated for some time and Ben Grubbs clearly hated Cam so much so that he didn't even entertain a Raven's offer!
Harbs, ever the diplomat and delegator, coupled with the strike were the only thing standing in the way of this move being done! It probably took Steve B's "HEY, KNUCKLEHEAD" call to Harbs to get this done!
But, I am ecstatic by the decision to get rid of the broken CAM-shaft that stalled our Ravens from their Super Bowl destiny! Once we're healthy, Watch Out!
I'll bet the Offense is so happy he's gone that they may have a "sleep over" so that they can get an early start to practice!
