      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

RB coach Wilbert Montgomery leaving

“Wilbert has decided to pursue other coaching and life opportunities,” Harbaugh said

 

Sounds to me like it was mutual and that Wilbert has another job he's after. Solid RB coach who served the Ravens well though, that's for sure.

Fall guy. Plain and simple. Apparently there are still teams interested in Caldwell and Castillo. If they don't get hired elsewhere they could be gone too.

You mean Castillo should have been shown the door yesterday.

This reminds me of when they fired Zorn and kept Cam...

And why did that happen? Because Cam was one of Harbaugh's best buds. So is Castillo.

Apparently Castillo is still highly regarded on staff. He's drawing interest from other teams though via Aaron Wilson's twitter.

Yep!  But the last part concerns me

 

Juan Castillo is drawing interest from other NFL teams, per a source, and is still highly regarded Still on the staff.

Apparently, it was his choice...  he is taking on a job that is less demanding and he'll be able to spend more time with family as well.

If this is the only release...Castillo needs to go..and to think i was excited about him coming in before the season started..

Call me an optimist, but I don't think he'll be the only one who goes this offseason. I can't see us making a flurry of personnel changes (unlike a certain team in Ohio), but I do think the FO knows something big needs to happen. Wouldn't be surprised if they were waiting to see what was happening re Caldwell and Castillo.

 

Then again, I don't think our rushing problems really stemmed from our RBs techniques. I could well see Montgomery being a scapegoat or him just being sick of working as an RBs coach. There's a lot going on that we don't know about.

I hate it for coach that he looks like the fall guy for our running game problems. Coach have had pro bowlers for years in the backfield.

Vonta not happy.

I actually can agree with this right now. With other teams interested in Castillo & Caldwell, no need to let them go until you see if that pans out. 

 

Only thing that concerns me is if all the good candidates to replace them will be snatched up before we can make a move.

Tbh the only guy I'd like to see brought in as an OC at this point is Chudzinski. Wouldn't be opposed to Norv at all, but it sounds like Cleveland's waiting to see what the new boss thinks of him before dipping into their supplies of pink paper again.

 

And if they do hire McDaniel and target Manziel in the draft, I could see them moving on from Norv too. I understand your point, but I don't think we need to stress just yet.

tbh we had Cam for too long. I get my hopes up during our post season run when we were actually creative, players were used properly, it was awesome. Then this year, back to Cam calls. Can't figure it out but we need a real live OC in here.

More changes to Ravens' staff likely, but nothing final yet, per sources. Offensive side of ball expected to be impacted most heavily

I don't want to celebrate too early though, only to find out that he's talking about the intern who operates the JUGS machine.

 

That said, it confirms what I said just before. Give it time to see what they do.
