Share your thoughts with fellow Patch readers after offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was fired by the Ravens Monday morning.
The weather Monday was befitting a morning after a Ravens loss to the Redskins. But for some Baltimore football fans, it was a beautiful day, as the oft-blamed Cam Cameron was relieved of his duties as the Ravens' offensive coordinator. Quarterbacks coach and former Colts head coach Jim Caldwell will take over play-calling duties.

Cameron was fired a day after the Ravens fumbled away a late lead to the Redskins, who walked off with an overtime field goal. It was the Ravens' second straight loss—and a 4th-and-29 conversion in…

It looked like the gig was up for the Ravens in San Diego on Sunday afternoon, but then something incredible happened. Down 13 to 10, the Ravens were at their own 37-yard-line facing 4th and 29 against the Chargers with less than two minutes left in the game when Joe Flacco dumped off a short screen pass to Ray Rice. As Rice scurried to get to the first down, it looked like he was in trouble as Chargers safety Eric Weddle had position on him in front of the first down marker. But out of nowhere came Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin to deliver a punishing block on Weddle to give Rice just enough space to fall forward for the first down. Chargers fans may be upset by the spot of the ball, but the officials reviewed it and said Rice got enough…
