John Harbaugh: King in the North

kinginnorth
First off, let me say that I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. Things kicked off wonderfully on Festivus (Christmas Eve Eve) as the Bengals won in Pittsburgh to eliminate the Steelers from playoff contention, then with the Ravens thoroughly dominating the New York Giants to seal their second-consecutive AFC North title. Now we get to spend our New Year’s Eve Eve watching the Ravens play those same Bengals in Cincinnati, in what will likely be nothing more than a glorified preseason game. While there is a remote...

Was “booing” the Ravens against Denver warranted?

Indianapolis Colts v Baltimore Ravens
John Harbaugh and the rest of the Baltimore Ravens are used to being booed loudly by fans – on the road. Inside the friendly confines of M&T Bank Stadium, hearing the contingency of purple-clad fans voice their displeasures with a harmonious “booooo” is new territory for those who have been a part of the team over the past two seasons. Fans are on edge, and justifiably so. Since Thanksgiving, their team has remained a single win away from clinching the AFC North and guaranteeing a home playoff game – and...

Is John Harbaugh in over his head?

harbsyellref
Prior to the 2008 season, Jason Garrett pawned Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and his franchise for a salary increase from the Dallas Cowboys. At the time, a dejected and rejected Bisciotti had to settle for option two, a barely known special teams coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. John Harbaugh is one of the most likable people you’ll ever meet – it’s easy to understand how he convinced Bisciotti for the keys to his franchise. Harbaugh is a charmer, he’s PR friendly and a model leader any owner would want to...

harbspresser
This past Friday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh had plenty of comments in regards to flaws he’s identified with the wording of the NFL’s injury report rules. After being fined $20,000 by the NFL, Harbaugh has made it clear that he and the organization believe the league should write the rules a little more clearly. “If a guy goes out there and doesn’t miss a practice, doesn’t miss a game, and doesn’t want to be on the injury report, and we have to be on the injury report, I want...

Harbaugh positioning Ravens for “stretch run”

Steelers-Ravens
As the Ravens make preparations to travel to play the Cleveland Browns this Sunday, the team will simultaneously be preparing for their toughest stretch of the season. While the players and coaches focus on the Cleveland Browns in the short term, it’s hard to ignore the difficult tasks that lie ahead for a team plays in a competitive division and that struggles on the road. A trip to Cleveland starts the first of the Ravens’ remaining four divisional games. After this five-week stretch, the Ravens will have played all but...

Harbaugh sidelines
As most of the region prepares to battle Hurricane Sandy, John Harbaugh and his coaching staff are making preparations for the Cleveland Browns. After already beating the Browns 16-10 earlier this season, the Ravens have plenty to work on as they previously allowed Browns’ rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden to pass for 320 yards. Harbaugh is currently undefeated coming off of a bye week, winning all four of his opportunities (five if you include the playoff win over Houston last January). Sunday’s matchup will be different though, as for the first...

A Parody of a John Harbaugh Presser

Harbaugh Presser
John Hardball: “Good to see everybody. Obviously, [we are] coming off a tough loss on Sunday and [are] disappointed by that. It was a hard-fought game even if the score doesn’t tell that story. Despite the score, we fought hard. Our guys have character. They are mighty men, men of honor. They are a team and play like Ravens. 26-3! A Raven never quits. He keeps digging. He is a salvage expert. 29-10! If it is lost on the road, he finds it. If it feels sunk, he brings it...

Coming off his worst defeat in his four-plus seasons as the Ravens head coach, John Harbaugh was more candid during his Monday press conference than usual. The loss wasn’t pretty for the Ravens, who were on the short end of a 30-point beating at the hands of the Houston Texans. Harbaugh said afterwards that the fingers should be pointed at him. “We didn’t put our players in a great position to win that game,” Harbaugh said. “We obviously weren’t ready to handle their scheme, their intensity, the crowd. All the...

Desperately Seeking Suggs

Ravens pass rush doesn’t pass If you were asked, “Where do the Ravens need the most help?” chances are your response would be, “Rushing the passer.” Currently the Ravens are the 29th ranked defense against the pass despite playing 3 of their 4 games at home. Teams have dropped back 171 times against the Ravens yet the team has produced only 9 sacks, good for 14th in the league. The 162 attempts against Dean Pees’ unit is the fourth highest total in the NFL. Making the Ravens pass rush seem even more...
