John Harbaugh throws a few stones at the Jets, Redskins

When a team has a bull’s-eye on its back, whether earned (like the Saints) or self-attached (like the Jets), their opponents bring the very best they have, every week.

For example, Ravens coach John Harbaugh recently spoke to fans at a “Countdown to Kickoff Barbecue,” and he talked about the team’s upcoming games including, most importantly, Week 1.  At the new Meadowlands Stadium, in the Jets’ first regular-season game there.

“They’ve got the TV show and they’ve got all the attention right now, and they’re doing all the talking, but we will be there right on time, our buses will pull up, we’ll come through that tunnel up there, and we will be ready to play,” Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun (which has video of Harbaugh’s remarks).

The Ravens know a thing or two about raining on a parade.  In 2008, they were the hand-picked victims for the final game ever played at Texas Stadium.  And Harbaugh’s crew sent the Cowboys out of their long-time home with a spur crammed into a place where spurs don’t usually go, unless you’re a horse.

Harbaugh also threw a minor dig at the team located the closest, geographically, to the Ravens.  Regarding the recent preseason game against the Redskins, Harbaugh said, “We kinda ran over that team, and we’re kinda proud of that, that’s the way we ought to play.”

Then, after the crowd cheered a little, Harbaugh said, “Yeah, that’s right.  That’s what it was.”

So, basically, it looks like Rex Ryan’s shtick is rubbing off on the guy who was his boss for one year in Baltimore.

And Ravens fans probably are kinda OK with that.

    Yeah, The fake punt was such a good call John! Way to go little guy!

  2. Citizen Strange says: Aug 26, 2010 2:56 PM

    The Ravens will beat the Jets in the opener but it will be down hill for them after that.
    The Jets and Ravens are the two most overhyped teams in the NFL.

  3. BigMikeSkinsFan says: Aug 26, 2010 3:02 PM

    it was 6-3 when the starters came out you dumbass. and if your OL didnt hold Orakpo constantly you KNOW it wouldnt have even been that close.

  4. n0hopeleft says: Aug 26, 2010 3:05 PM

    Mark Sanchez is a mere pebble in the bottom of Joe Flacco’s shoe.
    The Ravens will stomp the Jets out all day long.
    Mark Sanchez can’t hide behind his RBs this season – and especially not against the Ravens defense.

    I hope Rexy runs the ball down Baltimores throats. That’s the only time I’ll be a Jets fan.

  8. BigMikeSkinsFan says: Aug 26, 2010 3:13 PM

    sorry..3-3 until the fake punt it was 3-3

  9. OranjelloJones says: Aug 26, 2010 3:15 PM

    So Harbaugh can play to Homers like Rex can…BFD. As has already been stated it was a whopping 6-3 until that cheesy fake punt in pre-season. You’re proud of that bush league stuff? If that’s what you call running over a team, I feel sorry for the fans of your team that actually breathe Oxygen.

  10. REEDandRAYact says: Aug 26, 2010 3:18 PM

    Can either of those comments be considered throwing stones? The jets one is basically just a statement acknowledging Hard Knocks and the second is just a statement about the outcome of the game. Seems like fishing here.

  11. novanative says: Aug 26, 2010 3:18 PM

    haha, JOHN, your vaunted Flaco led offense didn’t do jack against our D. and your vaunted Lewis led defense was giving up deep McNabb passes all day (well, all quarter). if Freddy D didn’t drop that TD pass, would you still be talking all tough?

  12. Bill In DC says: Aug 26, 2010 3:19 PM

    +2 for working an anti-Cowboys dig into a totally unrelated news item.

  13. Mike says: Aug 26, 2010 3:20 PM

    You won because of a fake punt, great!!

  14. Sophocles says: Aug 26, 2010 3:23 PM

    Harbaugh was being polite. If not for all uncalled holding by the Redskins first team OL , the halftime score may have been closer to 30-3. Even at that, McNabb was rattled and tossed the type of picks that you typically see from rookie QBs. Against a weak and depleted Ravens secondary.
    Another long, long season and basement finish for the losers from Landover.

  15. KingAl4Prez says: Aug 26, 2010 3:23 PM

    I guess everyone just forgot how good the Jets defense was last year.

  16. REEDandRAYact says: Aug 26, 2010 3:25 PM

    Also the guy calling other people dumbasses, BigMikeSkinsFan, should know that it was not 6-3 at any point in that game (3-0, 3-3, 10-3, 13-3…) and it was actually 13-3 when the starters came out. Unless players like McNabb, Landry, Hall, Rogers, Carter, McIntosh, and Fletcher are no longer starters. In fact the only notable starter who was removed was Flacco at 10-3 at which point Bulger came in to make the Skins starting secondary look silly and to add 3 more points.

  17. Ocho says: Aug 26, 2010 3:27 PM

    Listening to Harbaugh, the Ravens players, and the Ravens fans you would think you were listening to the ’01-’04 Patriots talking as opposed to a team that has squeezed into the playoffs, the last 2 yrs, with wk 17 victories (over the Jags and Raiders)…

  18. DallasRavens says: Aug 26, 2010 3:35 PM

    If the Ravens had CBs they would be my super bowl lock. But they dont, so they’re not.
    Hell if the Ravens had anyone else but ED REED in the secondary they’d be a lock for the playoffs. . . . but they dont. Still RayRay is playing with over 1,000 lbs of DL in front of him and suggs, should be a great year for those two.
    And Ray Rice is reppin Jersey well, truckin over cats.

    Where is exactly is the stones being thrown at the Jets? I absolutely hate the Jets and thought this would have been a good article.

  22. robmart0906 says: Aug 26, 2010 3:43 PM

    As a ravens fan, im kinda OK with this

  23. dead money says: Aug 26, 2010 3:53 PM

    As a skins fan I can say I pretty much agree with Harbaugh.
    Anyone defending the pathetic offense, defense and special teams play of the skins against the ravens probably booked tickets to Dallas in February after the Bills preseason game.
    Its a work in progress people and the defense isn’t gonna scare anyone as-is.
    Fake punt in a preseason game though?????? BUSH LEAGUE. Especially since they lost their starting free safety for several weeks because of THAT friggin’ play.
    There’s holding on both teams in every game, every week… More so this year than most I reckon from the refs being moved around.
    If I was Harbaugh I’d be a little more concerned about his offensive line play rather than rubbing it in DCs face. I’m sorry but they didn’t do as well as they should have against the Skins and that IS going to be a problem when they play a real offense.
    Eff Dallas and Long Live the Irsay family, the only good thing to come out of Baltimore in decades :P

  24. FinFan68 says: Aug 26, 2010 3:54 PM

    The only way the Jetrs/Ravens game will get more hype is if Brett Favre somehow starts for the Ravens. These two teams are good but they are way overhyped.

  25. Matt Cribbin says: Aug 26, 2010 3:54 PM

    What was Flaccos numbers when he was in? How many yards did Mcnabb have at the half? That’s right Flacco did jack shit and Mcnabb had over 200 yards passing. If Fred Davis didn’t drop that touchdown it would be an easy advantage Redskins. Orakpo was being held all night. Ravens were sending every blitz package they had at us and couldn’t do jack on offense. What kind of team runs gimmick fake punts in pre-season? Wow, they sure proved alot with that. HAIL!

    ============
    Actually 13-3 since Donovan played the entire 1st half (check the play by play and McNabb was throwing passes with 0:49 secs left so who’s the moron?) and the half time score was 13-3 Ravens.

    @dead money
    Its not Bush league, it’s busch league, like the beer. If you’re going to capitalize it you might as well get it right.
    @Jim Harbaugh
    I dont think there is running over of anyone in a preseason game. Kinda or fully. It’s a game where there is no game planning and the 2nd and 3rd stringers play the entire second half and you only take a lead to the locker room because of a fake punt. If you want to start the celebration after that, you got another thing coming in the meadowlands.

    Redskin fans are so delusional. Going to love seeing their stupid pudgy faces crinkle up when McNabb throws low and wide to an open receiver on a 3rd & 6 over and over again.

  35. Switch1 says: Aug 26, 2010 4:23 PM

    I throw stones at My paper Florio cut out every day. its so much fun!
    Harbaugh= Pathetic little dweeb.

  36. Sociofan says: Aug 26, 2010 4:26 PM

    I would not say that the Ravens “kinda ran over” the Redskins in that game. First of all, it’s preseason and each coach uses the games for different reasons. Winning is waaaaaaaay down the list. Player evaluation is closer to the top. Second, at the half (when the second teamers next take the field) the score was 13-3 with a fake punt (would never have been called in the regular season at that point in a game) providing the only significant score. Having watched the game, my money would have been on the Skins in the second half to “kinda run over” the Ravens had this been regular season.
    Harbaugh is clearly looking for significance in any corner he can, but I’m not sure why. Baltimore actually has a pretty decent team, so preseason chest thumping is like being the first to potty in kindergarten. Maybe Baltimore has bigger concerns than any of the rest of us realized. O-Line? They sure couldn’t move the new 3-4 defense very well. I guess we will find out when the season starts.

  37. rickvaldez says: Aug 26, 2010 4:28 PM

    Wow He’s all happy for beating the 3rd stringers. If that team was so good and the Redskins were so bad why wasnt the score 21-0 at the half???

  38. Ocho says: Aug 26, 2010 4:28 PM

    @boysrollsmokespole +100 for your username first & foremost…But seriously, your comments are dead on…all day Saturday all i heard was Ravens fans talking about how they were going to dismantle the Skins…in this HUGE PREASEASON MATCHUP.
    O yea, the “best ravens offense ever” really showed out against a defense making a switch from 4-3 to 3-4.

  39. wd40 says: Aug 26, 2010 4:38 PM

    Three and out and you go for a fake punt in preseason. Hey why not. I saw the game and the dominance wasn’t there. The Ravens second string QB clearly dominated the Redskins second string secondary.
    I’d take McNabb over the Ravens what’s his name any day. The guy hasn’t progressed from being okay. Nothing special. The Ravens secondary didn’t impress. The front seven are solid.
    Redskins Oline was pancaked on almost every
    play. McNabb made things happen. Overall two compatible teams.

    I am a HUGE Jets fan and I have to say……………………. WHO CARES! No matter what happens in Week 1, it’s still only Week 1. It’s a long season, boys and girls, and no one will be claiming a championship after Week 1.
    Harbaugh said what he had to say to fire up Raven fans. That’s what he should be doing.

    @wheresrickysanders
    Actually, “dead monkey” is correct–minus the capitalization. It’s “bush league”.
    It’s a baseball term that was used to refer to minor league teams, specifically, their fields which were usually in poor condition.

    I guess everyone just forgot how good the Jets defense was last year.

    This defense won’t have Revis Island to neutralize the opponents’ #1 receiver. If you don’t realize how big this will be, you don’t know football. If you can stick Revis on an Ochocinco and shut him down, then you can double cover a TO and still have a safety free to roam the field or move up into the box to stuff the run. You think a guy like Rex Ryan wouldn’t kill to be able to have a safety to use however he pleases?

  48. everyfootballfan says: Aug 26, 2010 5:33 PM

    Skin score 3 in 4 quarter, I repeat 3, last year this was tippical Ravens D-fense, San Diego game, the Raven have always played a been but don’t break, at the end of the day stat mean little to any team, stats are about individuals, and as far as the Jets I don’t see no monster offense coming from them either, seeing Sanchez so far strike no fear in ravens fans and your running game well good luck with that.

  49. RKNRavens2 says: Aug 26, 2010 5:55 PM

    I can see the Jets being a tough game, but come on the Skins have not been relevent for over 20 years. That is and has been easy wins for most teams.

  50. bigbillnocmd says: Aug 26, 2010 5:58 PM

    interesting comments coming out of a pre-season game. Spurrier went undefeated. Zorn doubled up the Colts in the hall of fame game. I dont think either of those teams reflected their success. Giving the Jets added fuel is pretty stupid if you ask me. Its not like Flacco is coming off a great year (pretty much same year, numbers wise as Campbell).
    Skins also threw for over 400 yards against dude. Was jim bragging about that too? rex’s sorry ass put up 204 yards in the second half alone.
    And you gave Zorn a gatorade bath after winning a PRE-SEASON game. Ditka said it best. COME ON MAN!!!
    Lets see if Suggs can get more then a half of a sack then Fat Albert again this year (and played one more game then albert).
    regardless, Ravens fans know absolutely nothing about football. They are too worried about purple camo, purple feather bowas, purple cowboy hats and being to smashed to even know whats going on in the second half.
    Ravens are one of the most overrated teams in the league.
    HAIL SUCKA!!

  51. ppdoc13 says: Aug 26, 2010 6:01 PM

    @dead money – if your team can’t defend a simple fake punt then you deserve what you get. as far as losing your starting safety, well….. I feel really bad for you. NOT.
    as far as lauding Irsay, the only favor he did was take his drunk ass to Indy. We lost football for 13 years but ended up with Ozzie Newsome who is in the top 5 of GM’s in all of football and Steve B. who is a model owner in the NFL.
    Who owns the Foreskins???? Oh yeah, the Danny. How many HC and GM’s has that midget miscreant gone through since he bought the team from Jack Kent Cooke?
    Tell me you wouldn’t trade the Danny, Bruce Allen, and Shanny straight up for Steve B, Ozzie, and Harbs and I will call you out for being either stupid, a liar or both.

    For those who aren’t familiar with Redskins’ fan double-speak, the above translates into:
    “we are insanely jealous of our sister city’s success in the NFL. They have whooped our butts in 17 of the last 21 games. We’ll pretend to be arrogant and condescending about their city, while, deep down, we are seething with raging jealousy over our having a failure of an organization for two decades and counting, while sister city is an annual contender in a tougher division and conference.”
    “Also, while they have great food and drink in Little Italy, Fells Point, Harborplace, Federal Hill, Greektown, and at crabhouses along the waterfront, we have tidy little places that serve ham sandwiches on white bread with a glass of white wine, up & down Connecticut Avenue. As to ****-holes, we will pit Anacostia against any other city’s slums!”

    Skins fans don’t care about the Ravens. As for the games The Ravens starters aren’t that much better the skins starter that was a an even game until the fake punt.Afterwards both teams went to the bench and that was the difference of the game they have better depth then us.

    @bigmike- donavan played when our 2nd
    and third team was in you dumbass. Face it – your team blows donkey dick.
    I love dumb people from baltimore. Your BIGGEST offensive production was a 51 yard fake punt. Was that because Zorn is on your staff now? That is bush league and so are the ravens. McNabb threw for 200 yards in a quarter and a half. For my money….we gave the afc north the recipe to whip that ass.

    Wow! Crowing about the second preseason game – running a fake punt in the second quarter of the second preseason game – giving the quarterbacks coach a Gatorade bath after the second preseason game – “that’s the way we should play” after a 3.3 yds per rush and a starting qb with a 4.5 yds per pass average – Raven fan smacktalking about the preseason???
    Better raise your game, Harbaugh and Raven fan. I don’t know about Son of Buddy in New York, but Belichick will own you at this rate, and then Ozzie may have to reconsider how excited he is about “running over” teams in the preseason. Just beat the Giants and the Rams and Raven fan can hoist the preseason trophy on September 2nd and celebrate all the way to September 3rd. Hail!

  74. OranjelloJones says: Aug 26, 2010 9:14 PM

    bigravboy all of that tripe is meaningless when Portis basically didn’t play sans the one 9 yard run he blew your stellar D up on. Haynesworth and Daniels played with the 2nd stringers and the Redskins were clearly evaluating youth in the passing game along with backup running backs who probably won’t make the roster. In other words the Redskins didn’t game plan they evaluated, the Ravens by their own acknowledgment game plan and run their rush packages different than all but one or two other teams in the league. Oh and like it or not your starters WERE getting pushed around and out played in large part to the point that they threw up a cheesy fake punt after going in impressive 3 and out. Flacco was a mind boggling 9 of 16 for a big fat 72 yards and Rice had 3 rushes for 17 yards…yep those starters were kicking ass alright. 1 of 10 of 3rd downs…dominant! Ran right over em! It was 3-3 when that fake punt was run and your team scored a measly 3 points beside that. Take out the cheese we all know wouldn’t have been called in regular season and you’ve got a 3 point lead while being outplayed on offense.
    As for all you mental midgets comparing the STD (and depending on the year vying for murder capital of the US) capital of the world that has nothing outside of the Inner Harbor worth even stopping for to the most powerful and important City in the world, the Capital of the Free world, the most culturally and historically significant city in our country is not only laughable it’s pitiful. I mean really do you honestly think anyone outside of Baltimore who ISN’T smoking heavy doses of Crack is going to do anything but laugh at you low rent rejects who have the biggest case of Citywide Penis envy in modern history?
    City smack from residents of Baltimore? Your town is nothing more than a glorified rest area on the way to cities that actually matter.
    Oh and for all the smack you numbnuts talk you have a whopping one big fat trophy.
    ONE.
    Get back to us when you win your second. Until then enjoy blowing that premature wad on pre-season games. “Scoreboard”…over pre-season Hah! All Harbaugh did by talking trash about freakin pre-season was place himself in the same rarified air as Spurrier…some lofty company there.

    Meh, let him talk trash. Redskins fans don’t care about their ugly sister city (i.e., Baltimore). It’s the Baltimore fans that get worked up over the Redskins. I suppose that’s only natural when they have an inferiority complex about being a ****-hole of a city that is next to the capital of the world.
    ==================== =============
    For those who aren’t familiar with Redskins’ fan double-speak, the above translates into:
    “we are insanely jealous of our sister city’s success in the NFL. They have whooped our butts in 17 of the last 21 games. We’ll pretend to be arrogant and condescending about their city, while, deep down, we are seething with raging jealousy over our having a failure of an organization for two decades and counting, while sister city is an annual contender in a tougher division and conference.”
    “Also, while they have great food and drink in Little Italy, Fells Point, Harborplace, Federal Hill, Greektown, and at crabhouses along the waterfront, we have tidy little places that serve ham sandwiches on white bread with a glass of white wine, up & down Connecticut Avenue. As to ****-holes, we will pit Anacostia against any other city’s slums!”
    ________________________________
    Let me just point out a few misguided thoughts by this young person. 1. You don’t play in a tougher division. NFC East has 11 Super Bowl Wins. You all have 7. Thats right 7. You do have 2 in the new millennium with the steelers. (remember 2000 doesn’t count homey….. millennium.) NFC East is consistently the toughest division in football. Look back at the stats, not just with the ravens and the REDSKINS, but also look over the whole division. You all have at least one cup cake every year. The Browns. You did get swept by the bungles last year, but hey who doesn’t get swept by a team in their division once in a while. Next, your conference is not better. They have been better the last ten years, but not the last 20. 90 Giants, 91 Redskins, 92 Cowgirls, 93, Cowgirls, 94 49ers, 95 Cowgirls, 96 Green Bay, 97 Broncos, 98 Broncos, 99 Rams, 2000 Gayvens, 2001 Pats, 2002 Bucs, 2003 Pats, 2004 Pats, 2005 Steelers, 2006 Indy, 2007 Giants, 2008 Steelers, 2009 Saints. So as yo ucan see the dominance of the NFC. 11-9. I know it is a small victory, however your theories and thoughts are all wrong my man.
    Come on man, they made a series about west baltimore. My wife works in cherry hill. That is WAY worse than Anacostia. Get your facts straight. Until then take your purple boa, your purple cammo’s, your purple hon hair, your purple jersey, and your sound dumber by the minute HON accent and put on some burgundy and gold. You will no longer feel inferior. You will have a feeling of absolute joy that you get to wear a proud franchises jersey. If not…… Just go back to sleep in your parent’s basement.

Not like the ass whooping the gayvens took against the colts. Flacco can’t even complete a 5 yd screen to rice. You all are way too excited for a team that won 1 super bowl on defense and hasn’t been back yet. Chill out and take a back seat to the steelers. Homos.

    The Ravens won because they cheated. Even The Redskin’s announcers noticed it.They pulled the fake punt because they knew they couldn’t win otherwise – which by the way is also cheating.

    for a game that didnt have any meaning what so ever there is sure a lot of redskins fans on here wasting there time trying to talk on here with a 2007 9-7 creeping in the playoffs to loss drastically 35-14 to the redskins 2008 a beautiful 8-8 record to leave u nowhere and we get to 2009 a just standout preformance of 4-12..you have a player in haynesworth that doesnt even want to be there..and u managed to pick up a qb that has won absoulute shit and was dropped for a 2007 2nd rd qb that hasnt proved anything.you guys have nothing to look forward too but i guess u all are right portis wasnt in the game and u had ur backups in…considering portis has been injured for most the time hes been in washington and the years he had made it through only averaging 1,400 yard seasons..ooo ya and this fake punt we just cant get over..but damn maybe thats why we give these players that much money maybe to stop shit like that?and i guess while were at it baltimore was missing starting lolb and there 1 and 2 starting cornerbacks and are all nfl saftey from the first snap…mcnabb had a hell of a day throwing the ball around to his starting wideouts wit a couple undrafted free agents covering them…congrats…you all look foolish…then i have some dumbass going through my blog trying to correct my spelling…and your offensive line collapsed and your defensive line didnt penetrate.only thing redskins did was complete there god awful 3rd and long throws and cornerback play.

    @Jim Harbaugh
    I dont think there is running over of anyone in a preseason game. Kinda or fully. It’s a game where there is no game planning and the 2nd and 3rd stringers play the entire second half and you only take a lead to the locker room because of a fake punt. If you want to start the celebration after that, you got another thing coming in the meadowlands.

    As for the Jets … with that schedule they will be lucky to get 6-7 wins.
    Again Sanchez had 4 games with 3 plus INTs, of which which one had 4 and another 5. All the while hiding behind last years number one rushing offense. Not this year, not after letting 1,400 yards of rushing and Feneca go. You won’t see a 100 yards rushing combined against the Ravens. Sanchez will have at least 2 INTs, 3 sacks and a sore body come Tuesday morning.

    bigmikeskinsfan sounds like Joe Theisman whining about holding. That was not holding skins fans, that was effective blocking. With the umpire standing behind the line, holding is being called more frequently not less and leave it to the skins fan to claim everyone from the umpire to the referee to the guy selling sodas was out to get Washington. I guess good excuses are better than good teams. And also, it was never 6 – 3 it was 10-3 when the starters came out, a field goal and a touchdown after the punt return. 7 + 3 = 10 hmmmmmmm who is the dumbass?

Bulger n Stallworth killed the Skins with that (no disrespect Skins fans). Flacco needs to add that to his arsenal. I know people are talkin about our dbacks, but by the end of the year, we’ll have one of the best defensive backfields in the league…………..Ladarius Webb, Cary Williams (Dont forget this name OMG!!), Dawan Landry and of course Ed Reed (Best in da business).

Anyone remember there 13-3 season. They were billed as missing the playoffs,Billick on the hotseat. Then the next year,Willis comes in,Billick calling plays,improved defense….THEN WHAT HAPPENED. they swept the NFC west and beat the Steelers in a meaningless game. 5-11 finish. So Rat fans be careful when u gloat like this team is going places….eat your Phillips crabcakes and STFU.

    Redskins fan tossing smak? In order to talk smak, you must have some standing. You have no standing as a fan supporting one of the NFL’s worst franchises: the Redskins at 4-12 and competing with Lions & Browns for the NFL’s worst run teams. “Hail!” to two decades of losing teams, and 4-17 to Baltimore teams since 1956. That’s right: 4-17, a continual drubbing over 55 years. While you all get all worked up over a exhibition practice, our teams have punneked the Redskins in real games almost every time they have played. Do you remember a guy named Ed Reed, who almost single handedly kicked the crap out of your offense the last two game sin 2004 and 2008?
    “Die-Hard”: you sound pathetic, as a wannabe, envious, smak-talking Redskins fan. 4-12? hysterical! Your Lombardis are old and rusty. From your dump in Landover, look north about 30 miles to see how the grown-ups manage a team, coach, and compete for playoff berths annually.
