Latest John Harbaugh Items
Jim Caldwell's body of work put him in a position to get another chance to be an NFL coach.
Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh may not have to look far to find his new offensive coordinator.
The best guess is he'll be much closer to Joe Gibbs than Norv Turner. Asking anybody to match what Gibbs did the first time is unfair. But there's a small reason to believe he may be pretty good, a somewhat crazy reason but, hey, it is my crazy and I'll stick to it.
Joe Cipiti, the grandfather of NFL coaching brothers Jim and John Harbaugh, has died. He was 98.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — When you reach the playoffs in five straight seasons and take home a Super Bowl trophy to cap the run, it's difficult to stay at home in January while a dozen other teams are still playing football.
Baltimore went 8-8 and fell out of contention with a 34-17 loss to Cincinnati in the season finale. It wasn't a disaster of a season, but it certainly wasn't what the Ravens were looking for coming off the second Super Bowl win in franchise history.
This is the time of year when John Harbaugh usually gets his team ready for the postseason. On this day, however, he was stuck with explaining what went wrong during an 8-8 season that caused Baltimore to miss the playoffs for the first time in his six years as an NFL head coach.
The Ravens (8-8) lost their last two games, denying them a chance to make the playoffs for a sixth straight season. They couldn't avoid the Super Bowl slump that's so common.
The only way the Ravens can qualify for the playoffs is as the second AFC wild-card team. Baltimore must beat Cincinnati and hope either Miami (8-7) or San Diego (8-7) loses or ties, or, in a stretch, the Ravens can make it with a loss if San Diego and Miami also lose and Pittsburgh (7-8) ties or loses.
