Ozzie Newsome: "We'll be better on offense"

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome insists that his side will be better on offense in the 2014 season following their struggles in the 2013 season.

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is confident that his side will be better on offense next season after he admitted that they struggled in 2013.

The Ravens traded receiver Anquan Boldin and were without tight end Dennis Pitta for the majority of the season due to injury, as quarterback Joe Flacco found life tough just months after his side's Super Bowl win.

However, Newsome believes that new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak will breathe life into the team and their new additions will improve their production on the field.

He told the club's official website: "It was tough for the offense, much more than we anticipated. The lack of weapons really hurt at times.

"We'll be better on offense. I really like Gary's schemes. It's very precise. It's physical. I think we'll run the ball better, we'll keep the ball more and we'll have big plays.

"You can tell the players, especially guys like Joe, like it -- and they can see that we have a good chance to be a lot better."

The Ravens were ranked 29th in total offense in the 2013 season.
