AFC North: Jim Caldwell's Redemption, & Steelers Descension


 

 

With two weeks before the Baltimore Ravens head to New Orleans for the Super Bowl, they have made a couple of coaching moves. The most noteworthy was the removal of the interim tag from offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell’s title. This, after he became Cam Cameron’s mid-season replacement, and helped spark a miraculous Super Bowl run for the underdog Ravens. The former Indianapolis Colts Head Coach will now officially be back for 2013 calling plays for Baltimore.

The Ravens have also hired former Eagles Defensive Coordinator/Offensive Line Coach Juan Castillo as their run-game coordinator.

 

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking to improve their running game in 2013 after finishing 26th in rushing offense in 2012 and finishing the year 8-8 and watching their rival Ravens make it all the way to the Super Bowl. With a dry free agent market, expect them to target a back early in the 2013 NFL Draft.

 

The Philadelphia Eagles hired former Browns Head Coach Pat Shurmur as the teams’ new offensive coordinator. Shurmur has 15 years of NFL experience, and spent 2002-08 with the Eagles. New head coach Chip Kelly is still expected to be the teams’ play-caller.
