John Harbaugh: I wouldn’t say we’re going to be a more conventional offense

Oddsmakers don’t think that Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will be as prolific a runner as he was during last year’s MVP campaign, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh wasn’t placing any bets on Thursday.

Harbaugh was asked during a conference call whether Jackson will be throwing the ball more often this season. Jackson ran 176 times and threw 401 passes last season, which ranked 26th in the league. Harbaugh didn’t give a direct answer, but he suggested the offense isn’t going to move too far in the traditional direction.

“I wouldn’t say we’re going to be a more conventional offense . . . We just want to get better at taking advantage of the [defense’s] weaknesses,” Harbaugh said, via Jamison Hensley of

Defenses had a tough time stopping the Ravens on the ground last season and the addition of J.K. Dobbins in the draft gives them four running backs to use along with Jackson, so there may not be much of a push to break something that may not need fixing.

  1. I think the Ravens and Chiefs will battle in the conference championship and the winner will advance to win the Superbowl

  2. They’ll make minor tweaks and continue to absolutely dominate and embarrass defenses. #1 offense led by UNANIMOUS MVP Lamar

  3. I’m sure they have something cooked up. Greg Roman and Lamar Jackson together is going to give defensive coordinators nightmares as long as they are together.

  4. Defenses will start to catch up with them, not all the way or every game. Ravens should be glad there will be little, if any, time for Ds to work on this. Still, if Jackson continues to try to run like he did last year he’s going to get “beat up “from the feet up”.
    That is, if they play any games……

  5. You will need to once the rest of the league figures out your high school offense. Either evolve or perish.
