Ravens’ Bisciotti confident NFL will avoid work stoppage
“The fans, their frustration can’t lead us to offer somebody up for sacrifice for the things that went wrong,” Bisciotti said. “Because I have a litany of examples of our defense letting us down, too. … Every position group had a failure, every coach had a failure and it all added up to 13 wins and five losses.”
Harbaugh blamed the team’s sputtering offense primarily on the lack of a running game.
“We need to run the ball better,” he said. “That’s the No. 1 thing we’re going to focus on going forward.”
For the third straight year, the Ravens won a playoff game. For a third straight year, they failed to go as far in the postseason as they would have desired.
“I’m proud of the success; I’m frustrated with the loss,” Bisciotti said. “Last year, I said our goal was to be one of the elite teams. Realistically, our goal is to try and be in the top 12 that gets you into the playoffs. … We got to the final eight three years in a row. That is the cream of the NFL that gets to the final eight, and only one of those eight teams is going to go on a three-game winning streak at that point. That’s the one that’s going to be crowned Super Bowl champ.”
“We’re close. We’re trying to be there,” he said. “They don’t take us lightly. We’ve got their attention. We’re not there yet. They are.”
