The Baltimore Ravens were the defending Super Bowl Champs in 2013, but failed to make the playoffs to defend their title. Inconsistency on offense ultimately kept them from repeating. The running game was non-existent for much of the year and quarterback Joe Flacco had no go to guy on 3rd downs to keep the chains moving.
Several additions made in the off season were made to rectify those problems. Gary Kubiak, formerly the Houston Texans head coach, was signed as the new offensive co-ordinator. Look for more of a zone blocking scheme in the running game and quick twitch pass plays with play action. Steve Smith may have been the best pick up. He brings veteran saavy and attitude to the receivers corps something that was missing last year. Look below for the other key additions that should help the team get back to the post season in 2014.
