Will this be John Harbaugh’s last game with the Ravens?

Win today, and the Ravens head back to New England, where Baltimore always makes things interesting. Lose today, and things could get even more interesting.

PFT has reported on multiple occasions over the past several weeks that, notwithstanding Baltimore’s proclamation that coach John Harbaugh will return for 2019, multiple teams believe that he’s in play to be obtained via a de facto trade — and that the Dolphins and Broncos are the two teams to watch.

It’s finally catching on.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported on Sunday that “two NFL teams with current head-coaching openings are strongly considering that possibility” of pursuing Harbaugh.

Yes. The Dolphins. And the Broncos.

If the Ravens win (and keep winning), it will become more difficult to make it happen. Chances are, however, that sufficient conversations already have occurred via the back channels to allow all concerned parties to know what it would take to get Harbaugh. So whenever the Ravens’ season is over (and if the Ravens still haven’t extended Harbaugh’s contract), the process can move, quickly.

  1. Chargers have a ton of talent kind of like Steelers but they are so soft man. Philip needs too start winning some big games or his hype is all for nothing. Once Baltimore stops fumbling the ball I believe the chargers are done. Rivers throws a wounded duck and he is not going too beat this ravens defense

  2. John please come to sunny Miami and teach this team how to win and get them into the playoffs. If you do that the fans will treat you like a king.

  3. As a die hard jets fan I would love to have him as our coach. Also he knows how to play against New England

  4. John would be stupid too go too either of those 2 organizations stay in Baltimore or play it out and pick ur choice too bad he wasn’t available this year minus trade which won’t happen. I’d love too have him as my coach

  5. “Is Harbaugh fumbling the ball?”

    No. He went into a playoff game with a raw 21 year old QB though. Flacco is a much better passer, and he can at least handle a snap.

  6. Harbaugh is one of the better coaches, who would Baltimore replace him with? None of the options out there at the moment seem as good

  7. I wonder what the going rate is to make a deal like that happen. I don’t know why Baltimore wouldn’t want to keep him. I hope Elway can get this done.

  9. If I’m Harbaugh, I would pick Denver. Why be in the same division with Belichick? Yes, he won some games in New England but Bronco is a better team, at least on defense. Neither team has good quarterbacks. Just draft and develop.

  10. Well at least with the Jets we have an up and coming quarterback. Miami who will quarterback that team next year? And Dener do you trust case Keenum?

  11. If he went to the Jets, he would have 2 chances per season to learn some of the rules in the PlayBook from his daddy BB.

  12. Now I see why the ravens run so much. Boy does Lamar have a long way too go with becoming a good quarterback. If ravens don’t score before half Harbaugh should really consider putting flaco in for the second half ur season is on line let’s see how good of a coach he is

  13. If he doesn’t put Flacco in the second half he’ll be looking for a new job. But potential suitors might ask this highly sought after coach… “why didn’t you put Flacco in”?

    Jackson is Tebow with less accuracy. This is the NFL, not college.

    ___________________________

    Tebow 48% career completion percentage Jackson 58%, but yeah Tebow was WAAAAAAY more accurate. Jackson isnt a top QB but he’s better as a rookie than as Tebow at any point besides his one playoff win.

  15. Notwithstanding the results in today’s game, John is a far, far better coach than his brother

  16. Harbaugh didn’t sign Flacco to 125 million. The GM did. Since they benched him they’ve gone what, 7-1? With a qb that cant throw the ball reliably?

    Harbaugh plays to his rosters strengths, redesigning the playbook for Lamar. He’s an upper echelon coach that players love. Would be foolish to let him leave.

  17. The Patriots can only defeat themselves.
    I think they should put Flacco in, if he’s healthy. Jackson is one-trick pony for now. He needs to be a back up first and learn.

  18. Considering the lack of available coaches, why on Earth would the Ravens make Harbaugh available with NO alternative available? These rumors are pretty silly.

  19. Harbaugh gone.
    Flacco gone.
    All hope gone.
    Can we now stop the “this is the team no one wants to see in the postseason” nonsense?

  20. It looks like Harbaugh is trying to get fired. His decision to stick by Jackson is admirable but when is enough enough. Reminds me of the Johnson Flutie decision.

  21. The question is, does Harbaugh want to return? Fans have complained about his in-game decision making for years and he’s probably tired of hearing it by now

  22. Don’t go to Denver Harbaugh,they have weak oline no qb,subpar WR and worse off elways ego is so big he thinks he is drafting well,which is the biggest issue I mean since the 2011 draft when he got von all of his first round picks have not lived up to standards,until they got chubbs. It’s really a sinking ship over there with elway. Plus what’s worse is bronco fans our so in love with elway they don’t care. As along as elway is around that’s all they care. So John don’t go to broncos.

  23. Ravens were too utterly petrified to bench Jackson for obvious reasons. I think we can all figure out why.

  24. Boo hoo, so happy to see those dirty Ravens go down.
    Fumble, fumble, fumble gotta love it.
    Raven’s are from a toilet of a city and they just got flushed.
    Go Patriots!

  25. I have no dog in this fight at all, but Flacco is a better QB than Jackson, all he can do is run, period, he is too skinny. He has really small hands, why he fumbles so much. Josh Allen has some work to do as the Bills QB, but he is way better than Jackson. Allen has big hands like Troy Aikman, can hang on to the ball. Jackson reminds me of RG3. Just way too skinny. And it should be his last game for not starting Flacco.

  26. First game I watched Jackson play. He isn’t as good as I was expecting after all the hype. He is a rookie though. He did pretty good when the Chargers went into their win prevention defense. Guys were wide open then. I think the Ravens would have won with Flacco. Guy is a seasoned veteran and the Chargers defense was actually pretty average all game.

  27. Their offense today was ugly. They should have brought Flacco in after the half, he couldn’t have been worse. The defense were very good, too bad for them.

  28. lamar jackson is a big fat BUST!!! Baker Mayfield, clap-clap clap-clap-clap. Baker Mayfield, clap-clap clap-clap-clap.

    Baker the touchdown maker, gonna win the super bowl, and he’ll have a bust in canton, and the browns are america’s team.

  29. And there in a nut shell is why running QBs don’t make it in the NFL, teams scheme ways to stop them. Take a big part of the QBs game away and then let’s see what he can do!
