Some people are feeling that the Ravens are going to come out after the bye week with a whole different look in a lot of ways.
If you like to bet, rolling the dice on the fact that the Ravens are going to make some kind of change is a safe one. The defense is really having problems and lost two of its key players while the offense also has some issues. So, coach John Harbaugh and his staff will certainly look at changes.
But don't expect a major overhaul.
It's just not realistic.
The coaches are going to have to decide how to help the injury-depleted defense be more effective, especially against the run. Is the return of Terrell Suggs enough to help the pass rush and how the team plays the pass?
The question is how they're going to do it. Most likely, they'll adjust schemes and try players in different spots. They're still looking for the right combinations on the offensive line, and the defensive line simply hasn't come through yet.
It's not like baseball where you can make big trades mid-season. Harbaugh's already said that the players they have is who they're going with. They just need to figure out what to do with them.
The Ravens have played very well at times, even on defense. That's why next Sunday's game is going to be very interesting to watch to see what the coaches come up with. Remember, the Ravens remain on top of the AFC North and still will be there heading into that game in Cleveland.
Teams make all kinds of changes during the season, and the Ravens know that. The fans need to understand that there likely won't be a huge overhaul. After all, it's not realistic and the team still is 5-2.
