Ravens news: John Harbaugh has ‘no doubt’ Baltimore’s offense can be ‘very successful’
The Baltimore Ravens are not a good football team as the NFL heads into the second half of the 2017 season. John Harbaugh’s squad is sitting in second place well behind the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North division with a 4-5 record and hope for a playoff spot dwindling.
One of the main concerns for the Ravens this season has been on the offensive side of the football. Baltimore hasn’t been able to get it going with quarterback Joe Flacco struggling and the team simply not clicking offensively. Harbaugh was recently asked about the team’s shortcomings on offense, and he believes they need to stay the course, via BaltimoreRavens.com.
“So, there’s no doubt in my mind that we can be a very successful offense throughout the rest of the season. We show enough flashes of it based on the tape, based on the way I see guys are playing, and who we’ve had and haven’t had out there, that I feel that we’re going to be able to do that. I have a lot of confidence in the coaching staff, I have a lot of confidence in the players, and I can see the way forward.”
Baltimore is currently 24th in the NFL in total offense and 30th in yards per game at 286.6. Flacco is having one of his worst seasons in recent memory with the veteran quarterback throwing for 1,551 yards, eight touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and four fumbles.
The Ravens just seem as though they’ve hit a wall offensively and if that doesn’t turn around immediately it could be a disappointing end to the 2017 campaign for Baltimore.
