“Fire Greg Roman”: Fans outrage for ousting Ravens offensive coordinator after scoring their fewest points in a regular-season game in 14 years

The offensive unit for the Baltimore Ravens struggled mightily on Saturday. Due to Lamar Jackson’s injury, the club had to play backup quarterback Tyler Huntley against the weak Cleveland Browns defense.

In spite of the Browns’ season-long troubles, they allowed just three points against the Ravens. However, Ravens faithful publicly blamed poor play on offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Searching “Greg Roman” on Twitter during the game turned up a lot of criticism of the seasoned coach. Those tweets haven’t stopped since.

In 2019, Roman was promoted to his current position as offensive coordinator after joining the club the previous year.

His prior stops as a head coach were with the Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, and Baltimore Ravens. At the collegiate and high school levels, he coached as well.

It’s possible that this is the first time in his lengthy career that fans have been so upset with him that they’ve risked arrest by trespassing to deliver handwritten cards to the Baltimore team facilities demanding that Roman be let go.

Tyus Bowser, a linebacker with the Ravens, made a TikTok clip of the notes. Despite Bowser’s best efforts, the video has now gone viral online.

While speaking to the press on Monday, head coach John Harbaugh mentioned the notes.

Harbaugh also spoke to Bowser, one of his players, over the latter’s social media post depicting supporters calling for the dismissal of a coach. He assured them that that is not an issue right now.

Last but not least, the reporters questioned Harbaugh whether he was worried that the fan had gotten so near to the team’s facilities that he may leave notes. “It’s irrelevant to Harbaugh, so we won’t even bother.”

For the time being, it seems like Greg Roman will remain the Baltimore Ravens’ head coach and play caller.
