John Harbaugh has big plans for “best in the NFL” Haloti Ngata

John Harbaugh AP

Lost in all the talk about all the players Baltimore has lost since winning the Super Bowl is one area where the Ravens believe they’re better: The defensive line, where Chris Canty and Marcus Spears have been added in free agency — and where coach John Harbaugh is already licking his chops about what Haloti Ngata may be able to do in 2013.

Harbaugh told the Carroll County Times that the addition of Canty and Spears will make Ngata even better.

“Our bell cow in there is Haloti. He’s our best player inside, probably the best player in the in the National Football League. I know Haloti is really, really motivated to have a great year,” Harbaugh said. “Adding those guys and putting the pieces around him is a huge part of what we’re doing.”

Harbaugh said the Ravens can allow Ngata to do more now that they have better personnel around him.

“We’ve played [Ngata] everywhere pretty much, and it’s been more based on what we’ve needed to do based on the offensive line that we’re going against or our situation personnel-wise,” Harbaugh said. “But the fact that we’ve added two guys that can play defensive end definitely marks the possibility he could play inside more.”

And so in an offseason when starters Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger, Bernard Pollard and Cary Williams have left the Ravens’ defense, Ngata may be ready to have his best season yet on a very different Ravens defense.

    Best in the league ? He’s not even the best defensive player ! How about JJ Watt ? You might have heard of him ….

  2. ravensallday2012 says: Mar 23, 2013 10:28 AM

    People will hate because they don’t like the ravens. But at the end of the day our def is better now than it was a year ago. Webb will be a huge difference. Wait and see haters

  3. pilot2011 says: Mar 23, 2013 10:30 AM

    why is “best in the nfl” in quotation? I’m no where near a Ravens fan, but I don’t believe anybody can dispute that Ngata isn’t the best.

    He is early 2000’s Julius Peppers of the DT position. Once in a decade freak of nature.

  4. harrisonhits2 says: Mar 23, 2013 10:31 AM

    I’ll take Wilfork over Ngata any day.

  5. sbaltimore says: Mar 23, 2013 10:32 AM

    It was obvious that with the addition of Canty and Spears Haloti Ngata would be moved inside more in 2013. The past 2 years have been disappointing for someone getting paid that much money and taking up that much cap space (almost twice as much as the QB). He, along with Suggs, is going to have to have a better year in order to earn the amount of money he’s getting paid.

  6. jeffml says: Mar 23, 2013 10:35 AM

    Healthy Ngata=Beast!

  7. imeanwhatisay says: Mar 23, 2013 10:35 AM

    rewhat about the pass, with webb the only gd CB WE GONNA GET ATE UP WITH reed being gone

  8. greglloydrules says: Mar 23, 2013 10:36 AM

    As a Steelers fan, I can vouch for Ngata. He IS the best DT in the NFL. And he’s the ONLY Raven I like.

  9. gonavybeatarmy says: Mar 23, 2013 10:37 AM

    But isn’t Jump Ball Joe the best player in the NFL?

  10. dennychimes says: Mar 23, 2013 10:38 AM

    The Ravens were the 25th Ranked Defense in 2012. With the exception of Matt Birk Retiring Boldin going to San Fran, and the possible loss of Bryant McKinnie on Offense I think they are pretty stacked. put Pitta in the Slot, Draft a TE and the offense will be fine. IMO. The defense was the Glaring Elephant in the Room so to speak. They needed to do something. I think that once the dust settles this team will be more competetive than you think. Addressing the Defense was what needed to happen!!! A Free Agent or 2 Choose wisely in the Draft, and the moves they have made in this off-season will be forgotten. It had to happen sometime…..

  11. ravens4lifeudig says: Mar 23, 2013 10:38 AM

    Ngata gets doubled also he was hurt a lot last year ill take ngata. Ravens still will dominate next yr even with Ed, ray. We will be a lot better than 90% of the teams out there losers

  12. ravens4lifeudig says: Mar 23, 2013 10:39 AM

    Without Ed and ray

  13. fistoftheraven says: Mar 23, 2013 10:39 AM

    Ngata is A BEAST. Who else gets double-teamed every game . . . even when he’s hurt?

    Yea, he’s awesome but he’s always seems to be hurt over the season. Hopefully with new additions, we can take some pressure off him.

  14. mellard1121 says: Mar 23, 2013 10:40 AM

    Listen I cant stand the ravens but I respect them .. that being said ngata is a monster when 100 percent and id t ake him over any d tackle besides geno atkins .. atkins us a lot younger being a key reason why and gas more upside

  15. pigbenis69 says: Mar 23, 2013 10:40 AM

    Good thing he’s signed long-term. There’s no way in hell he’d be saying that if Ngata was up for a contract or trying to renegotiate.

    He’s right though. I’d take Ngata over any DT in the league. If o-lineman are “dancing bears” as Mayock likes to call them, then Ngata is a breakdancing whale.

    So glad Andy “Lombardi” Reid took Bunkley that year.

  16. brobroski says: Mar 23, 2013 10:43 AM

    You Spelled Vince Wilfork wrong.

  17. FlyFromTheInside says: Mar 23, 2013 10:43 AM

    Oh yeah, you mean taking cheap shots at QB’s 20 yards down the field when they are already down? Got it…big plans

  18. edisbetterthantroy says: Mar 23, 2013 10:45 AM

    I 100% agree that the Ravens D will be improved from last year. Everyone’s crying about losing guys from a defense that ranked in the bottom third of the league. The same group that nearly blew a big lead in the Super Bowl.

    There will be a significant loss in the locker room, yes. But in today’s NFL, if you can’t get pressure on the QB in what is now a passing league, you’re in trouble. The D Line is already light years better with the recent additions, no more Terrance Cody in a starting role. And may I remind you that you that the Ravens will have a healthy 2011 DPOY in T-Sizzle.

    The offense will continue to improve under Jim Caldwell and Joe is entering his prime. It makes me laugh how people can make such bold predictions in March. May I borrow your crystal ball or perhaps the green you’re smoking?

    Even in Houston, Ed > Troy…

    I believe he meant the best interior defensive lineman. If you read the comments again, perhaps you will understand them.

    Haloti Ngata is a freakin’ badass. He is, as coach Harbaugh mentioned, quite possibly the best interior defensive lineman in the game. I am still upset that the Browns took Kamerion Wimbley over him. Stupid Browns.

    The Ravens aren’t rebuilding, they are just reloading.

  20. humbleminded85 says: Mar 23, 2013 10:48 AM

    People love talking rankings and side picking, but the Ravens don’t care about any of that crap. We don’t care how many people pray for our downfall because when you have Oz, Decosta, and Vince(Oz son) finding gems every year and Pat Moriarty running the finances. I’m not a fan hoping that this group has a winning formula year after year, I’m a fan who KNOWS this and gets to kick my feet up every year knowing we compete. Just like this year we lost 8 starters going into 2011… just to go 12-4. Men lie women lie…numbers do not.

  24. footballfan77 says: Mar 23, 2013 10:55 AM

    I think personally the best DT is Geno Atkins that kid is young,quick,strong, he can chase down any running back to the outside, i saw a tape of him chasing down steven jackson from behind while steven was running on the outside, of the right tackle and geno was in front of the left guard, now that was crazy, hes a mixture of DT and a DE.

  25. dartwick says: Mar 23, 2013 11:02 AM

    If hes not the best hes very close.

    Theres no real way to compare in inside DL to Adrian Peterson or Aaron Rodgers. But there no one who I would say is better than Ngata.

    And Im a Steelers fan.

  26. lightofkolob says: Mar 23, 2013 11:03 AM

    Better personnel around him? Really?

  27. footballgod87 says: Mar 23, 2013 11:05 AM

    Haloti is very good, but he’s not better than Geno Atkins right now.

  28. tsuscrumhalf says: Mar 23, 2013 11:06 AM

    Everyone is so quick to hate on the Ravens & talk about how they’re going to suck next year because of all of the lost talent.

    On O, only Boldin (maybe McKinnie) will be gone. Birk was getting pushed back into the QB consistently so his loss will be an upgrade. Boldin’s loss will hurt but there’s still Ray Rice, Torrey Smith, Pitta, Jacoby, and Ozzie will pick up a slot receiver thru the draft or a low priced FA.

    On D, the line is better w/Spears & Canty joining Haloti & Art Jones & McPhee & some depth guys.

    LB – still an area of significant need. OLB is set w/Suggs & Upshaw. ILB has Jameel McClain, Josh Bynes and a whole lot of work to be done.

    CB – gonna be OK w/Webb, Graham, Smith, Brown

    S – ?????????????????

    For all the losses, there are only 2 need areas. ILB & Safety. Not too shabby for getting the cap situation sorted out. Yeah, a lot of guys left, but they were all on the wrong side of the age spectrum and Kruger/Ellerbee got WAY overpaid.

    No panic in Bmore.

  29. kingbowen says: Mar 23, 2013 11:07 AM

    He is a great tackle but Geno Adkins was the best last year 12.5 sacks as a DT is just insane no other tackle even came close

  30. ravenscaps48 says: Mar 23, 2013 11:13 AM

    Since our inception in the league in 1996, the Ravens and Steelers have the same amount of Super Bowl Championships. So I don’t want to hear your 6 Ring argument.

  31. Cereal says: Mar 23, 2013 11:18 AM

    Ngata IS the best. No other DT comes close to his skill levels. Hate on haters. Ravens will be in the same place they’ve always been under Harbs and Flacco. The playoffs. No other team can say that. Cheers!

    @imeanwhatisay

    You do know that in 2010, Reed missed 6 games to start that season? Through those first 6 games WITHOUT Reed, the Ravens had a top 5 pass defense. I’ll miss Reed but it is not the end of the world. He to was a player on a very average at best defense last year.

  38. neepo13 says: Mar 23, 2013 11:39 AM

    @tsuscrumhalf

    Losing Ellerbe and Kruger hurts because they are young ascending players but you are right. Before the injuries started to pile ip Ellerbe was splitting time with McClain. He was a situational linebacker, not a starter. Kruger had the same role once Suggs returned, depending on the team the Ravens played you only saw him in obvious passing situations.

    Can’t lie the losses hurt, especially Reed, but there is still a lot of talent left and it’s not like we are talking about the Ravens defense of 2000 being broken down here. This is the only defense in Superbowl history to give up 430 yards and still win. It’s starts in the trenches, so Harbaugh has it right.

  39. tsuscrumhalf says: Mar 23, 2013 11:43 AM

    And, Baltimore has 6 rings as well……
    Colts NFL Championships in ’58 & ’59 (’58 called the Greatest Game Ever Played and only 2 cities can say they were part of that) and SB 3.
    Stallions – Grey Cup 1998
    Ravens – Super Bowls 35 & 47.
    So……3 + 1 + 2 = 6 rings earned in Baltimore’s rich, varied, storied football history.

    The last game the Ravens played in resulted in a parade.

    The last game the Steelers played in was meaningless.

  40. jacktheraven says: Mar 23, 2013 11:46 AM

    @humbleminded85 – Vince Newsome is not Ozzie’s son. Not related. They are dam near the same age.

    The last game the Steelers played in was meaningless.

    Your entire post is meaningless…..why don’t you add your high school’s championships while you are at it. When there are six Lombardi’s in the raven trophy case let me know until then your bragging is like a litter of noisy puppies.

  42. nkybengalsfan says: Mar 23, 2013 11:53 AM

    Best in the NFL? I did we measure that? He is not even the best at his position. Can you say GENO ATKINS?
    I will take the soon to be 25 year old #97 in orange & black stripes over Haloti Ngata.
    My guy 12.5 sacks, 53 tackles & 4 FF.
    Your guy 5 sacks, 51 tackles & 0 FF.
    Atkins has 23 sacks in his three years in NFL.
    Ngata 22 sacks over 7 years.
    I’ll sit back & wait for the Raven fans to call me a hater now.
    Just know my hate for the ravens has nothing to do with Baltimore or you silly a## raven fans. It started many years ago when your team was called the Cleveland Browns.

  43. nkybengalsfan says: Mar 23, 2013 11:53 AM

    Congrats on your 6 trophies. Its quite an achievement. But in reality 4 of them came before the Ravens existed. Since the Ravens have been in Baltimore, Pittsburgh has two and Baltimore has two. And only one of us is the reigning Super Bowl Champion. Jealous?

    Also, NFL didn’t start in the late 60’s when they changed the name of their championsip game. There are other teams with more than SIX championships.

  47. ravenmuscle says: Mar 23, 2013 12:28 PM

    The only reason the Stoolers have any rings is because their entire offensive line was on steroids before they started teasting for the juicers. Courson was the worst offender

    The name should be SIX JUICER TROPHYS.

    People are so caught up in how we’ve lost a bunch of guys but I firmly believe we’ve improved on defense. If we can get a Dumervil, or Harrison, and maybe even Michael Huff; we’re top 10 again.

  53. nzayir says: Mar 23, 2013 12:46 PM

    Ravens fans can delude themselves all they want but they lost a ton of talent on both sides of the ball. No team loses as much quality football players as the Ravens did and gets better. They have to rely on the crapshoot that is the draft to fill 8 or 9 holes. Good luck with that.

    The worst part is that Flacco’s cap number is gargantuan next year. The Ravens will be forced to let even more talent get away.

    And Vince Wilfork is better then Haloti Ngata. I don’t even have to think twice about it. Wilfork gets triple teamed half the time and still controls the game.

  54. ravenator says: Mar 23, 2013 1:06 PM

    Raven haters are so funny. They have to make absurd claims to make themselves feel better about watching Ravens hoist the Lombardi. Pathetic.

  55. sbaltimore says: Mar 23, 2013 1:21 PM

    ravenator:

    You can’t honestly believe that Ngata has been the best the past 2 years. Whether he’s “potentially” the best is irrelevant. He clearly has not been the best the past 2 years, and unless or until he proves he’s the best on the field, he’s not the best.

    actually flacco’s cap number in 2014 is 14.8 million…far from gargantuan. in 2015 it jumps to 29 million..at which point the deal will be restructured. and yes the ravens have lost a lot of players…as they do every year. and somehow someway they still are in the hunt every year. why is that? great coaching and a fron office that knows what it’s doing. personally i am looking forward to seeing the new players that will be brought in. smart teams look forward and dont rest on their accomplishments…and the ravens are very smart. go ravens!!

  59. phillynac says: Mar 23, 2013 1:55 PM

    I love how Ravens fans are justifying this offseason and saying they “will be fine”. “Boldin is gone but we will just get another slot guy in the draft”. How disrespectful to a guy who carried the offense in the playoffs. And saying it is ok because Ellerby, Kruger, and Reed were overpaid is ridiculous. While they were signings the Ravens couldn’t make, it doesn’t mean that the defense isn’t hurt by those losses. Couple that with the retirement if Lewis and the Ravens defense which wasn’t lights out to begin with, will struggle next year. We will see how fast Ravens fans will turn on Flacco when he puts up a regular season like last year and the defense isn’t there to bail him out.

  60. sbaltimore says: Mar 23, 2013 1:58 PM

    Correction scoobies05. Joe’s cap number in 2013 is $6.8M. His cap numbers in 2014 is $14.8. His cap number in 2015 is $14.5. AFTER that, it goes through the roof. But as you said it’s irrelevant because it’ll get redone after 2015.

    *******************************************************************

    Outside of within-division rivals and maybe the Pats, nobody “hates” the Ravens, so enough with the “us versus the World/David v. Goliath” schtick.

    Except for the arguable position that the team was stolen from another city, the team has no real history to speak of that would inspire hate or jealousy — the organization isn’t even 20 years old. Furthermore, it’s a small-market organization that is geographically surrounded by large-market teams or organizations that have way more history behind them (namely, the Redskins, Eagles, and Steelers).

    People might not care about the Ravens, but that doesn’t mean that they hate them (aside from a few obnoxious posters on PFT that annoy people, but what team doesn’t have that).

    Has Harbaugh cleared his claim for Ngata being “The Best”, with Mr. Kraft, owner of the “Tom Brady Team of Perfection”? Kraft has already ID’ed himself as the dispenser of the “Best Imprimatur of the NFL”. Harbaugh isn’t even an owner, just a measly little wannabe, a pretender to the throne of King Belichick, another Kraft proclaimed “Best”.

    How many times did they call Wilfork’s name in that AFC Championship game? Maybe my TV was broken but I don’t think I heard it once. As soon as Ngata got hurt in the SB magically the 49ers were able to run the ball. I’ll take Ngata. Wilfork gets triple teamed because he weighs 400lbs. Damn that’s a lot of space between that 7 and 5.

    I don’t make my own rules, ignore evidence or believe in the tooth fairy peanut. You can’t rewrite history and be taken seriously. You can’t brag about being champion then expect past champions not to do the same. There are not raven rules and raven rules for everyone else. Good try but this adult doesn’t fall for that. Tricks are for kids….have a bowl peanut.

    Small market team? Since when was Baltimore small market? When we got the Ravens we were the largest market without a football team and if we are talking about markets then the Redskins are in the exact same market since they’re what less than 35 miles away? I hate when people spew out stupid stuff and don’t know what they’re talking about. This isn’t baseball. Every team in the NFL has the same amount of money to spend whether you’re in NY or Dallas. Even the Orioles aren’t small market. They may be run like a small market team but they aren’t. The Nationals and the Orioles share the same network genius. Guess who has the controlling interest. The Orioles. Guess down goes your argument.

    in one post you talk about my toes and now you are calling me peanut? dude what is wrong with you. as far as all the history stuff no one denies the steelers have 6 super bowl titles…its the part where steeler fans dont recognize the fact the league did have a championship before the advent of the super bowl. the packers have the most nfl titles not the steelers. the ravens did come here from cleveland in 1996. and they have their own history and records from that point in time. lets do a for instance…ray rice is the 2nd alltime leading rush in ravens history behind jamal lewis. nowhere does jim brown’s name appear. that historyis for the cleveland browns and their fans to enjoy. i hope this helps you. if there is anything else you need explained feel free to write back. and keep up with the insults…makes you look real grown up

    Ngata gets doubled also he was hurt a lot last year ill take ngata. Ravens still will dominate next yr even with Ed, ray. We will be a lot better than 90% of the teams out there losers
    ————————————————–

    lol,,the ravens wont even make the playoffs next year. half of your D is gone, you lost your most dependable WR, and flacco’s contract will prevent you from doing much. ngata is a nice player but unfortunately cant be counted on due to constant injuries. enjoy it while you can.

    Thinned skinned or what? No sense of humor.Dont hold back it will give you gas. It takes more muscles to frown than smile. Relax dude and learn to laugh at yourself you are way too serious.
    You are the one who tells steeler fans our Super Bowls in the seventies are ancient history so are you using your raven logic again come on I don’t by your game because you bend the rules to suit your goal…that’s adult?

    Holy crap, that d-line is loaded.

  82. scoobies05 says: Mar 23, 2013 5:40 PM

    far from thin skinned….i find humor in most of our exchanges. you seem to be the one who takes things serious. and resorts to childlike insults unbecoming of an adult. i really dont have an issue with the history stuff. just inaccuracies which you seem to enjoy to suit your needs…such as life. im sure we will continue to go round and round

  83. scoobies05 says: Mar 23, 2013 5:45 PM

    by the way…in my “history lesson” what did i say that was incorrect. i would love to know if i was wrong. please enlightn me

    An adult can laugh at himself and life. An insult is like a joke to be effective it must have a modicum of truth . I don’t interpret history or bend reality or believe in the Easter bunny like you do.

  85. scoobies05 says: Mar 23, 2013 7:01 PM

    way to answer my question. i guess like i said earlier when you are wrong or have no response you resort to your snide comments and “jokes”. i ask you a question that you cant or wont answer. my reality has no easter bunny in it either. guess thats one thing we have in common. and if you would read what i am writing you would see that i am hilarious. but when your responses to some of these postings include saying a whole city is full of bad people because they support someone that you have an issue with…thats far from being an adult. but thats just my opinion. looking forward to your retort and an actual answer to my history question. lets see if you have it in you to admit that i am right

  86. jprcox says: Mar 23, 2013 7:38 PM

    Talk about trying to put a spin on an otherwise bad situation… face it, no one knows how the Ravens will play this year. Its a brand new team for the most part.

    So you aren’t the purple browns and you have two Lombardi’s is that your final offer? I accept that so your chirping about winning one third of what the steelers have in the modern era should stop soon ? Come on you have seen one third of the Super Bowl victories I have so relax and as you youngsters want to say don’t judge. You can’t shame me so don’t even try because my morals are much higher….but we won’t go into that again.

  88. scoobies05 says: Mar 23, 2013 9:04 PM

    browns are browns…they reside in cleveland. ravens are in baltimore. browns have their complete history in tact. ravens have their own history. those are facts as recorded in the nfl record book. guess you have an issue with that as well. dont ever question my morals…again you dont know me. you have no issue with condemning a man who is innocent of what you claim he did and served his penalty for the crime he did commit. you defended a country in a war…a country which believes in givin people a second chance. but you have made yourself that man’s judge. that man has never been in trouble again..he changed his life and has done lots of good for lots of people. but you know better… dosent sound very moralistic to me. i never said the ravens had more championships then the steelers. but since the ravens have come into existence in 1996(thats according to the nfl) they are even in championships. and i have been alive and haVe seen all 6 steeler championships. stop thinking you are a carnival act who can guess people’s age. you are a smart man…just not as smart as you think you are
