Locker Room Buzz: Baltimore Ravens

By Jamison Hensley

BALTIMORE -- Observed in the locker room after the Baltimore Ravens' 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers:

Staying the course: Ravens coach John Harbaugh insisted that it's not time to panic about the struggling offense. "The thing that we're not going to do is overreact," Harbaugh said. "You don't go in there and make any kind of major adjustments when you know you're doing things right and you've got the people to do it. We're a work in progress, no doubt about it."

No second-guessing: Harbaugh made two aggressive calls -- going for it on fourth-and-goal and throwing the ball with 20 seconds left in the first half -- that backfired on the team. "I think the philosophy is basically to attack. You try to do it within reason," Harbaugh said. "We're never going to be reckless in what we do. If you look closely at the NFL percentages, those are not reckless decisions by any stretch. These are good decisions that most of the time are going to pay off for you."

Problems with execution: What's wrong with the Ravens' run game? Running back Ray Rice used the word "execute" three times in answering the first two questions. "We've just got to execute at a high level," Rice said. "We would love to run the ball better. It's not something you plan on -- going out there and messing up. The run game has to get better. We'll just keep sawing at it and get ready for the next week."
