Ravens To Keep OC Marty Mornhinweg

Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh says that offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will return in 2018. “We’re not making changes,” Harbaugh told reporters (Twitter link via Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun). Marty Mornhinweg (vertical)

In 2017, the Ravens finished 27th in total yards gained and 21st in Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric this season. Last year, Mornhinweg took over for Marc Trestman as OC in October and the team finished 17th in total yards gained and 24th in DVOA. The Ravens did not take a step forward this year, but they are opting for stability over a schematic reboot. A new hire would have made six OCs in seven years for the Ravens.

Meanwhile, the team will be hiring a new defensive coordinator in the wake of Dean Pees‘ retirement. Former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano could be a leading candidate for the job.

    Man who cares about people kneeling during the national anthem, them bringing Mournhinweg back and probably making 0 improvements over the offseason is the reason I won’t be watching the Ravens next year

      If I was a Ravens fan, keeping Mornhinweg and having Harbaugh make such a cavalier comment as “We’re not making changes” would p!ss me off something fierce.

        Draft some offensive weapons that can contribute – should be mad at GM not OC

        Go get some young WRs and TEs that help along with a little o line too then if team still does not move the ball then fire him. But cmon that side of the ball had little talent or depth.
        My only gripe would be what the heck took so long to give collins the ball 15 plus times a game!

          Of course but the OC hasn’t done anything. When we had Kubiak it was like a top 10 offense and he turned Justin Forsett into a top 10 back. We’ve had good WRs and TEs… Dennis Pitta out with the hip, Crocket Gillmore out because he’s never healthy, even Ben Watson who did play dealt with injuries all year. They barely used Jeremy Maclin since Flacco was dealing with injuries all year, Perriman didn’t develop at all. We didn’t use Mike Wallace until we absolutely needed to and he keeps aging. Danny Woodhead was hurt also but we had Buck Allen and Alex Collins playing some great football at points with Yanda out. But still ranked bottom third in all offensive categories. Of course I blame the GM as much as I blame the coaching staff as much as I blame the injuries. But it’s that they don’t plan to change anything. The owner complaining about attendance when there’s no product on the field. The fact I tune into Ravens games, the team I love, to see if Justin Tucker hit the FG for my fantasy team because it’s more likely I win there than having my actual team win. That’s why it’s annoying being a Baltimore fan these past couple years. Definitely disappointed with the front office never helping the offense but at least our defense is a good place to build from. And having the best special teams/kicking unit in the league is much more important than it seems. Too bad Dean Pees is leaving now, make Weddle DC or something

    Terrible decision, owner said that if things didn’t get better heads would roll. . 4 put of 5 years out of the playoffs. This past year Ravens had the easiest schedule in the league facing 7 back up QB’s. Ozzie hasn’t drafted an offensive playmaker since 2008. Recipe for another 8-8 or worse season.. Ravens owner Is all talk and no action.

    Real problem is Flacco is paid like an ELITE quarterback but doesn’t play like one. Anytime Ravens are ahead with 5-6 minutes to go Joe can’t produce a score or a long time consuming drive and allows the other team a chance to win.

      Flacco has zero weapons. As bad as he is the root problem is not surrounding him with talent. If you invest that much money into a guy you are doing a disservice to your team by not giving him weapons. Signing veterans off the scrap heap is not gonna cut it.

        But the point is they paid Flacco TWICE. When they absolutely only needed to pay him once. And Ryan Mallett is our backup. They thought about signing RG3. Like come up with a plan to replace your QB who has been declining for years now please!!
