Ravens fire Cam Cameron and the Ravens Nation Rejoices

I am a fan of the Baltimore Ravens and yesterday we watched them lose to the Washington Redskins. Somebody’s going to win and somebody’s going to lose that is a given, but it how we lost. The Redskins were down by 8 points and RG3 their sensational rookie quaterback was down with an injury and they brought in the 2nd string quarterback who managed to connect for a touchdown and run in a two point conversion. You could fault our defense for not being able to stop the run, but you also have to take a hard look at our offense and their failure to deliver in the red zone and when you look that way you will see Cam Cameron. Well this morning he was released and Jim Caldwell will be calling the plays. Cameron held the job for 5 years. So you ask how does it relate to politics? This is a case of an employers expectations not being met. Sure Cameron tried and the Ravens allowed him to keep the job for 5 years, but when it became obvious this was not going to work the team let him go. This is how we need to look at our elected officials. Winning elections should not be based on your ability to run a good campaign it should demonstrate that you actually have the ability to govern, and if after (2 years-House) or (6 years-Senate) we the people should give these people their waking papers and not reward them with another term.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.

    The world of professional sports just might be the last bastion of accountability. It is a world where one is paid to deliver results. They are not paid to try to achieve results; they are not kept in employment because the boss likes them. Their race, religion or politics have nothing to do with an assessment of their performance. It’s all about results.

    The primary reason politicians are so ineffective is because they are not held to any sort of performance standards. Just consider the facts that a president has been reelected who shepherded an economy in which the greatest percentage of personal net worth has been lost since the Great Depression, fewer individuals are employed at the end of his term than at the beginning, gasoline prices are up more than 60%, food stamp distribution has increased more than 45% to 47.7 million people, 6.4 million more people now live in poverty, workers’ health insurance premiums have increased by 23%; should I continue? Oh never mind. You referenced two year and six year terms; you were referring to the congress not the president. I guess he get’s a pass.

      Good point, 4 years should be included.
