The Ravens held on for a last-minute win today that gave them the AFC North title, and afterward coach John Harbaugh credited his team for holding together through a season that didn’t always go according to plan.

Harbaugh said after the game that the 2018 Ravens are the best group of players and coaches he has ever been around, going all the way back to when he was playing Pop Warner football.

“This is the best team I’ve ever been associated with in 34 years of coaching and even back to pee-wee,” Harbaugh said. “Look at this team, this bunch of guys. This is what a real team is. This is what a real team looks like. A bunch of guys who make a team. That’s why we’re where we’re at.”

Where the Ravens are at is the playoffs, where they will take on the Chargers next week. Harbaugh thinks his guys are playing together in a way that will make them a tough opponent for anyone.

  1. What a joke team this one is – once Lamar comes up lame, the team is toast. It is one thing to run with a running back – this team is now just Lamar and a supporting roster of nasty elves.

  2. uh yeah… well John, you’re best team isn’t going to go beyond your next game.
    Chargers will make the adjustments from the last meeting, and your season will be over.

  3. Yeah OK whatever John. You’re headed home if the refs didn’t blow dead Cleveland’s defensive touchdown after RGIV fumbled at the one inch line. Browns were robbed.

  4. I’m a Steeler fan but I have to give credit to Harbaraugh for rolling the dice with a “non-traditional” QB with 25 million dollars sitting on the bench. Hopefully more coaches will take notes and realize that QB success comes in all styles and colors.

  5. Here we go again another running QB is being anointed as the next big thing in the NFL. It will not last long, it never does. Jackson better learn to pass the ball before next seaosn or he will wind up like RGBIII.

  6. Wow, way to insult the team that WON A SUPER BOWL for you and guaranteed your ongoing employment.

    Maybe he’s right. But it’s pretty clear that Jackson is succeeding on borrowed time, on the momentum of a mid-season switch to a new offensive style that hasn’t been figured out yet by opponents. But it will. They figured out Kaepernick, they’ll figure out this approach with Jackson and then the team results will revert to average.

    Solid team, mostly average, record will reflect it soon.

  7. It helps when you get to face idiots like Tomlin, Hue Jackson (not anymore) and Marvin Lewis twice a year. It’s not hard to out-coach the three stooges of the AFC North.

  8. Enough with the blown dead call you children’s football enthusiasts. Football is an organic game, we could say the phantom holding call would be a dagger, the ball broke the goal line, several catches were bad calls. It’s football, everyone uses the same refs. Take your 25 yr old nerf football and cry into it. A run first team flipped the script and I love it!

  9. It was classic to watch Flacco on the sidelines. So obvious he wanted the Ravens to lose so he could get this all over with. Lol

    Must be excruciating sitting behind a QB who can’t even read & write

  10. If I was John W. Harbaugh I’d be focusing more on the upcoming WILDCARD game against the Chargers more than talking up how great my team is.

  11. Runnnngg QB’s are one big hit away from daily cold plunges. Won’t last in the playoffs if he can’t throw the ball and read a good defense. It’s all been proven thru the years!

  12. “What a joke team this one is – once Lamar comes up lame, the team is toast. It is one thing to run with a running back – this team is now just Lamar and a supporting roster of nasty elves.”

    Best comment ever… because the other 31 teams would be fine if their starting QB got injured as well. (sarcasm)
