JOHN HARBAUGH: DJ Extraordinaire

Harbs headset

Kudos to Coach John Harbaugh, his assistants and the players for being able to chuckle at themselves this week despite being the focus of a less than glamorous national spotlight over the “Love Bus” incident. Playing Tommy Roe’s 1966 bubble gum pop hit “Sweet Pea” at practice was the perfect method of imposing a very light punishment (some would consider it worse punishment than others) while loosening up a team preparing for a tough road game.

Coach Harbaugh continues to demonstrate why he is among the best in the NFL by turning a slightly embarrassing incident into a morale booster for the team while deftly imposing a very light touch punishment and a humorous lesson with his choice of practice music.

However….Coach may have missed a few songs:

  • For Ray Lewis: Backstabber by The O’Jays
  • For Ed Reed: Still in Love with You by Al Green
  • Owner Steve Bisciotti: The Good Life by Tony Bennett
  • For Joe Flacco: Sixty Minute Man by The Dominoes or The Big Payback by James Brown
  • Ravens Receivers: Fingertips by Stevie Wonder
  • For Ray Rice: I’m Still Standing by Elton John
  • For Vonta Leach: I’m a Steamroller by James Taylor
  • Ravens Rookies: Dangerous by Michael Jackson (In a good way!)
  • Tandon Doss: Gonna Fly Now by Bill Conti (From Rocky)
  • Justin Tucker: Thriller by Michael Jackson
  • Elvis Dumervil: Jailhouse Rock by Who else? – for all of the jailbreaks to the QB he will start
  • T Sizzle: Fire by Arthur Brown
  • Haloti Ngata: Superfly by Curtis Mayfield
  • Dennis Pitta: Bad Luck by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes
  • New Ravens: Another Day in Paradise by Phil Collins
  • Ravens O: In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins
  • Ravens D: One Shot (aka Lose Yourself) by Eminem
  • The Ravens Cheerleaders: Brick House by The Commodores
  • Ravens Fans: I Just Want to Celebrate by Rare Earth
What suggestions might you make for some of the other Ravens?

    Poor taste on Backstabber, which BTW the actual title of the song is Back Stabbers. People actually died and you’re implying Ray Lewis is a backstabber and thus a murderer? Shows your ignorance of the incidence, plus, it’s not at all funny.

    Marshall Yanda- “I Hear You Knockin’ But You Can’t Come In” Dave Edmunds
    Sizzle- “Bad Moon Rising”-CCR
