In retrospect, losing to the Redskins was a blessing in disguise. Caldwell has been great at O.C... What perfect timing it is to be playing your best football all season on both sides of the ball.

There is little to suggest that we will slow down any time soon. We are making that last ride all the way to victory in New Orleans. I know that Flacco will be throwing the ball deep in the dome.

Absolutely amazing job by Jim thus far. Let's see what he can add to Cam's playbook next season, though. The Castillo hire was genius. [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Per the Aaron Wilson article and the [/font][/color][url="http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000129367/article/ravens-to-keep-jim-caldwell-at-oc-add-juan-castillo"]NFL.com article[/url][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif], it seems that he has been around the team the past few weeks since he was fired by the Eagles. [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Anyone think his recent inputs affected the OUTSTANDING play by the Ravens o-line and the re-emergence of Big Mac? If so, great move by Harbs, who I'm sure had great connections with Castillo as a former member of the Eagles squad.[/font][/color]

Here what they're talking about in foxbrough...Matt Pepin, Boston.com

"The Baltimore Ravens saw the trepidation, the uncertainty, the confusion. And what they sensed most from the Patriots in the darkness at Gillette Stadium on Sunday night was something we have not witnessed for a very long time.

Fear.

And so it ends this time the way it has ended many times before in recent years, with the Patriots succumbing to a tougher, more physical team in the late stages of the NFL postseason. ...

No excuses this Monday, Patriots fans. No talk of Rob Gronkowski's arm, of Aqib Talib's hamstring, of Chandler Jones' ankle. Baltimore has had more than its share of issues this year. The Ravens still came into Foxborough on Sunday, shook the Patriots' hands at the coin toss, then punched New England squarely in the face.

And the Patriots just took it."

Well, for lack of any other explanation, the change worked!

Remember back when there was a "no holds barred" meeting? What came out of that was a ultimatum - either Cam changes or we're DONE! It was a lose-the-locker-room-or change moment!

John, ever the 'company man" and loyal friend, negotiated a truce,.. but nothing really changed with the ensuing win, then loss!

Enter Jim Caldwell!

Now, we're in the Super Bowl,... Joe's being called elite, and Harbs is now a great coach with a Super Bowl appearance after 3 AFC championship games!!!

...

Uh-huh!

Caldwell = MVP of the coaching staff

Does Cameron still get a ring after we win ? Or does he just get some SB cuflinks ? :)

And thank you Vegas...for making us the underdog in 3 of our 4 playoff games. Who would of thought we could of been to the Super Bowl every year by changing one thing...Cam Cameron. Like we said before EVERY QB or team has gotten better after Cam left. Drew Bree's turning Elite, the Dolphins making the Playoffs after firing Cam and going 1-15, and what a coincidence...Joe is balling(12 TDs, 1 Int) since Caldwell turned OC.

Caldwell staying is just another great thing for the Ravens. Caldwell has been a great addition to the Ravens I wish we could have had him calling the plays all this year.

I think Cam has a great offensive mind and put a really good offensive system in place. His play selection and lack of patience at times is what really did him in. I think Jim works better with Joe because he allows Joe to have more input to the offense than Cam did

Sometime I just shake my head at "absolute" statements like this! Jim Calwell didn't do anything extraordinary, BmoreB, except make us better!

As for Cam,................................... No, oh hades to the NO!

Very happy to see Jim staying. I truly like him as a coach, and he seems like a great person. I was a little worried about the J Castillo hiring at first, thinking Pees may be gone. When all is said and done this year, D Pees did as good a job as was humanly possible, considering all the injuries he had to work around. Glad he is staying as well.

We hired Castillo as "offensive assistant" and "run-game coordinator". I'm pretty sure that means Moeller is out as O-line coach and Castillo is in. He is a fantastic coach but we had to grab him before someone else did without shaking up and causing drama by firing a coach right before the Super Bowl.

Juan castilio he was a terrible in Philly, is this a good idea?
[/quote]

Just spend some time to read the Eagles fans' comments about Castillo and his release back then...

I'm not sure at all he was the real problem there. The fans obviously didn't think so. And i guess they know the situation better than us.

PS, oh, something... remember tha Ravens-fan who said the Ravens "[i]already look[/i](ed) [i]defeated[/i]" after the first quarter? What do you think about it now?

Dunno... the O-line has been pretty good lately. It only needed McKinnie back on the turf - and it seems to be a generally accepted "fact" that McKinnie was kinda banished to the bench by Harbaugh, not Moeller...
