On Wednesday, the Ravens named Marty Mornhinweg – the OC for the Jets for the last couple of seasons – as the team’s new QB coach. Many fans and sportsbook software services – especially those following the Ravens – believe that the team made a very good decision in acquiring his services, considering his history in the game and his great knowledge of a team’s offense.
Mornhinweg, 52-years-old, is stepping up for Rick Dennison, who is joining the ranks of the Broncos along with Gary Kubiak. The QB coach joins Baltimore a day after Marc Trestman was hired by the team to be their OC. He’s connected to John Harbaugh, the Ravens’ coach, as he was in the same coaching staff with the Eagles for 5 years – from 2003 to 2007.
“Marty’s got a great history and background with the offense we were running last year and what Marc is going to build on this year,” said Harbaugh. “He’s a great quarterback teacher of fundamentals, footwork, reads and quarterback mechanics. I’m really excited about that. Marty’s a great coach. He’s going to be a great addition for us. I know he’ll work really well with Marc and work really well with Joe [Flacco].”
Baltimore’s fans are also very excited, as they’re well aware of how much stronger the Ravens can get with Marty, and they can’t wait to see how the team as a whole will perform with him.
Even though Mornhinweg was working alongside Harbaugh and Juan Castillo, OL coach for the Ravens, this time it will prove to be the first one that he’s in Trestman’s staff, something that many fans believe will seriously boost the team as a whole.
“This is all going to be part of a formula to continue to play at a high level offensively and continue to get better,” said Trestman.
Mornhinweg will turn into the sixth QB coach for Flacco in what will be the eighth season that he spent in the NFL. Flacco is leaving the best season that he had so far where he impressed fans everywhere with his talent on the field. The player set career records of 3,986 passing yards as well as 27 TD’s.
Ravens fans all over the country believe that the team will greatly improve with Mornhinweg in their ranks, and many of them believe that they could make it even further next season with his services.
