Safe to say that no one in the Ravens coaching staff is losing their jobs due to poor performance last season. Perhaps more surprising is that none of them left for greener pastures after such all-around dominance. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman commanded the top offense in the NFL while defensive coordinator Don Martindale coached up a top 5 defense despite the mass exodus of star players prior to the 2019 season (earning himself quite the payday as a result). And of course, we can't forget head coach John Harbaugh, who was considered to be on the hot seat just a year and a half ago. There aren't many more secure HC seats going into 2020.

I had a very high opinion of Dwayne Haskins going into the 2019 NFL Draft. With only seven starts in an unfortunate situation last year, my opinion of him has not changed. He threw for seven touchdowns and seven interceptions on a 58.6% completion percentage. Those numbers do not scream optimism, but when looking at the whole picture, it is easy to see why he struggled. Let's take a look at the situation.

It's put up or shut up time, who will stick to their grand philosophy? Who will crumble like week-old tacos when a player they claim to hate starts dropping and lands in their lap. Can I make it out the other side with any dignity?
