Whatever the book is, the Ravens have read it, memorized it, digested its contents, and are able to recite the plays backwards and forwards in their sleep. The Week 1 announcers marvelled at how the Baltimore defenders seemed to always know what was coming.

Last year I made this chart, and I'm posting it again as it supports the notion that Zampese is imminently predictable. You may recall the one showing how Andy Dalton's QB rating changes over quarters across the course of his career.

We see that 2016 is the only season where Dalton's rating steadily declined as the game progressed. That was when Zampese took over the duties as OC. This pattern suggests that the defenses were figuring out what was going on. You can't blame it on talent as the players were the same throughout the game.

We'll have to track this throughout the season and look for other suggestions of predictability.

Remember when I said there is a reason Zampese was passed over for years?

Yes, I do, but we didn't specifically hear about anything negative, and sometimes a coach gets lost among the competition. I was trying to be hopeful. As our sample size gets larger things continue to look worse. I'll give you that.

As we are all well aware, Mike Brown doesn't like to fire coaches on offense. So we're probably stuck with Zampese for eternity, no matter what.

Remember how long we were stuck with Bob Drunkowski? Yeah.

That was a mighty short eternity, I'll tell you what.

The book is now closed. The last page is written. The Bungs turn the page.

Actually the negatives were staring us in the face, Palmer and Dalton both regressed under his role as QB coach , not sure how promoting him made any sense

However in fairness to him and his short stint as OC he was probably set up to fail, he was likely handed a playbook and a gameplan and told to go out and coordinate , he is just the sacrificial lamb

Yeah, I can't help but think that the right head coach could have alleviated Zampese's problems. When the coordinator is stuck between a rock and a hard place, it's up to his boss to set some priorities. As in, "Focus on X, not Y. I'll talk to the players so they understand. Y won't work with our current personnel."

Ross and Mixon can't help this offense much with that offensive line in place. Not when you try to employ the same philosophy that worked with a much better line.

Have any of you heard who all the so-called mutineers were? I've only heard AJ Green. But I did notice during the game Brandon LaFell was quite animated and appeared angry. Ken Zampese = David Shula part Deux.

JB, when I read that I assumed it was hyperbole. If it were real we should have heard more. That was from a single source, right?

Originally I read it on PFT.com but then a lot of other blogs incl. espn reported it also.

WHY is anybody paying attention to Brandon GD LaFell and what the hell does Brandon LaSuck have to be pissed about?

Oh wait--is it the fact that he can't read a playbook and wasn't good enough for the Patriots (Tom Brady) so they let him go?

Now he has to resort to being in stripes?

Actually, I think I'd be pissed about that one too. But it's your own fault you didn't work harder, BL. You could have had a ring last year if you studied.

Going back to Lazor for a moment, I think his biggest contribution will be to "take away" the players' main sources of complaint. Green and Eifert will be targeted more. One back will be featured over the others. The play calling at crunch time will seem more aggressive.

It won't help much, but it will be harder bellyache about it.

So maybe Zampese's biggest mistake was not failing in the proper style. Sometimes you can try too hard to compensate for other people's failings and it ends up looking like you're the problem.

Not saying he was a great coordinator or anything like that. I just find it hard to believe he was truly that bad.
