On Friday, when it was announced that Cam Cameron would return as Baltimore Ravens’ offensive coordinator, he addressed his relationship with quarterback Joe Flacco.
“I couldn’t be more pleased with where Joe and I are,” Cameron said, via CSNBaltimore.com.
There has been rumors that tension has persisted between the two for a couple of years, but there has been no public indication that such a problem exists.
The Ravens elected not to bring in a quarterbacks coach for the 2011 season, making Cameron both play-caller and quarterbacks coach. In doing so, Cameron and Flacco were in close quarters during the practice week as well as game days. Flacco’s stats dipped a little from 2010 to 2011, but he played extremely well in several clutch moments, including last Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.
Baltimore finished the 2011 season ranked 15th in total offense and 12th in scoring offense.
“We all want more stats out of Joe. We live in a fantasy football world offensively. I understand where that comes from,” Cameron said, “but Joe has all the major bases covered at this point in his career. He’s right on track to where a lot of the great ones have been (at this point in their careers). That’s encouraging to us.”
