That offense was very complicated, and that is a great point. But Trent had the luxury of the best running attack this team has ever had, and among the very ever.
Trent Green flawlessly executed the Coryell offense under Cam Cameron, yet Flacco struggled for years in that same offense. It wasn't until Cameron was fired and replaced with Jim Caldwell that Flacco finally became the first rounder that the Ravens envisioned when they chose him in 2008.
I think that Trent was a cerebral as a QB you could find, in any era, and it's a damn shame that Rodney Harrison robbed him of what could have been an even better career.
