OWINGS MILLS, Md. – If the Baltimore Ravens didn’t realize the level of anger toward their flailing offense, they got a sample of it when they headed to the team’s facility Sunday morning.
Someone left several handwritten makeshift fliers reading “Fire Greg Roman” scattered outside the entrance, calling for the Ravens’ offensive coordinator to be fired. Baltimore outside linebacker Teus Bowser He posted a video of parts of notebook papers to Instagram with the caption, “Okay, okay” before deleting it.
In a 13-3 loss in Cleveland on Saturday, the Ravens scored the fewest points in a regular season game in 14 years. Baltimore’s offense has been spotty since their bye week, scoring a league-low 13.8 points over the past five games.
On Monday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was asked if he would make any changes to his coaching staff.
“We don’t get into all that,” Harbou said. “I mean, you can talk about all of it and I respect that. I love fans talking about everything they can talk about. We’re together, man. We’re a team. We spend all our time preparing for the Atlanta Falcons with every ounce of energy and fiber we got with A group of people who are very good at what they do, and who understand everything about our team better than anyone else. For the people sitting at the end of the bar.”
Harbaugh said he spoke to Bowser about what he posted on social media and believes Bowser spoke to Roman about it.
“When things like that happen, you communicate with each other, and you discover that there’s really not much going on, in terms of what people are thinking and all that,” Harbaugh said. “I can go into a rant on social media, but I don’t know why anyone would live there.”
When asked if he was concerned about how the fliers got to the entrance to the facility, Harbaugh said, “I don’t care how they got there. I don’t care. I’m not security. Security should be worried about it. It’s paper-paper.”
Earlier this month, someone posted a video to Twitter of fans shouting obscenities at Roman as he walked from the stadium to his car after the game. “Get out of here, Greg,” one fan yelled.
In Roman’s first season as Baltimore’s offensive coordinator, the Ravens were nearly unstoppable. As quarterback, Baltimore averaged 33.2 points per game Lamar Jackson He led the league with 36 touchdown passes and set the single-season rushing record for quarterbacks with 1,206 yards.
Now, in Roman’s fourth season as a caller, Baltimore has had increasing difficulties getting into the end zone. The Ravens are 16th in scoring (21.7 points) and 17th with 30 touchdowns.
“There will be times, you’ll go out there and you’ll have a bad day,” Harbou said. “We don’t want them. … Nobody is more upset about this or can’t sleep about it than the coaches and the players, but the thing is you have to get off the ring and go win the next game.”
It is unknown if Jackson will return for the next Baltimore game. Harbaugh declined to say if Jackson will return on Saturday against the Falcons after missing the previous two games with a sprained knee.
“I think I’m going to get behind the bar because maybe it’s not the right time to release so much information about our injuries, just for competitive purposes,” Harbou said.
