    Harbaugh making excuses for the beating the Pats gave the Ravens

    From PFT.com:

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/category/rumor-mill/

    The Ravens won a hard-fought game in Detroit last Monday night and then returned home for a date with the Patriots that wound up being an ugly one for the home team.

    New England won 41-7 in a game that saw the Ravens struggle in all phases with even Justin Tucker missing a field goal on a day when nothing went right. Among the reasons that coach John Harbaugh cited when asked about his team’s listless performance was the impact of coming off a short week following a road game on Monday night.

    “It did, we felt it,” Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun. “We fought through it all week as best we could. Our guys were excited to play, and I thought the effort was there. They fought like crazy, but we just didn’t have enough juice to pull it off. It’s a legitimate factor. Everybody has scheduling issues that they’ve got to deal with in the NFL, and that was one of ours.”

    While there’s no denying the lost day of preparation that comes from playing on Monday night, the records show that it hasn’t been too great of an issue across the board this season. Teams that play on Monday night are now 16-15 in the next week while teams that played on the road are 7-9. Harbaugh’s own career record stands at 3-3 after playing Monday night on the road, which shows that the team can overcome the schedule on occasion.

    It may have been a factor in the loss, but it’s hard to feel that a little missing juice was the difference maker in a game the Patriots won by 34 points.

    BB, in the same position, would have talked about how great the opposition played and how the Patriots have much work to do as players and coaches. Instead of this verbal diarrhea of excuses.

    One thing you can say regarding BB's pressers is that the message is always consistent. When they lose it's always about having to coach better and play better in all three pahases of the game. When they win the players did a great job of preperation and executing.

    I've watched many NFL games. Have you ever seen a pair of coaches, the Harbaugh brothers, who have such pained looks on the sidelines and yaks at the referees so often about every call?

    Harbaugh is a classless fraud. He also fell for the Ray Lewis "moral minister" rope a dope.

    Did you really expect less from this guy?  Just another example of the classless Baltimore Ravens and it all starts with the ownership and coaching staff.  If I remember correctly, Flacco shot his mouth off sometime back saying he was the absolute best quarterback in the world...

    He takes lots of notes on the sidelines, may speak with the refs, but, is not yaking back at them at almost every turn like we see in games featuring the Harbaugh brothers.

    Sunday, both coaches were yakking at the refs, and deservedly so.

    That's incorrect. BB rarely yells at officials. He does have a permanent pained expression but that has nothing to do with officiating.

    is there a team that whines and crys more than the Ravens, Ray Lewis still whines about Brady getting that roughing the passer call --how many years ago? and don't forget Harbaugh s comments about Spygate a couple years ago which caused Bruschi  to go nuts on ESPN .

    Harbaugh s getting what he deserves by cheating the rest of the NFL and making a sweet deal with his brother for Boldin.

    I'm so glad they kicked their a s s!!

    Re: Harbaugh making excuses for the beating the Pats gave the Ravens

    Hello Patriots Fans,
    I did not see this great epic but from the press reoprts it must have been ferocious.
    I am so glad to have T.Suggs, Ngata and Ray Lewis' band of Mouths get their comeupance!
     I remember a few years ago when Michael Wright and Deion Sanders were with Dallas and were bad mouthing the Niners in an upcoming playoff tussle as a team in "recovery", still undefineded.  Weak and incapable is my best guest.
     Carmen Poli,  NIners Executive  took the Podium after the 49ers Rout and spoke eloquently, " Sometimes, not always but some times as this occaission, a Champion willl rise up to its real level of Talent and smite an a Brash adversary."
     That's what happened Sunday afternoon for the Patriots, they kicked butt.
    I have a lot of questions about how games turn  out after watching for 50 years , but I think last year was a gift to R. Lewis.
      I have a question for him, Has anyone ever gone to Baltimore purposefully? Why? Quoth
    the raven, depraven ravens.  I am elated!
    And surpprisingly, I feel good about the Pats chances to win the AFC Title Game. Not one team in the path of Victory
    Thanks for your post and giving me a venue to vent some hostility. Winning is one thing, Running your mouth is something that always needs addressing , LIke 3 - 4th down stops, holding Rice to under 4 yds / carry, 1 defensive and one special teams TD.
    I think many would agree BB got the Team ready for this one.

    Go Pats
    Davidseattle

    I would also suggest to Harbaugh if you want to have a chance to win when you are down 20-0, don't be gutless and attempt a field goal on fourth and 1....it might save you some whining after the game

    I know BB has tons of respect for the Ravens organization but I sure don't. 

    Remember when he called the patriots success tainted?

    I have never understood the hatred for the Pats, Bb, TB except for jealosy. Although No one ever says anything bad about Kraft

    One never hears a disparaging word about another team or player. They always say how good the other team is. Or the other team made more plays. they give R E S P E C T all of the time, except for WW once and you see what BB did

    Some D players think they have a right to maim. but TB and PM too, know the rules, know what they themselves are , stay in the pocket and get rid of the ball.  Qbs who stay in the pocket get hit less and are protected. why does anyone think why last years Qbs who ran are not running nearly as this year. Kaeprernick, rg3 etc. Even Cam is more selective

    Re: Harbaugh making excuses for the beating the Pats gave the Ravens

    I will say this, when Flacco was asked over and over again about his knee/ankle affecting the way he played, he said it had no effect on the way he played. I thought that was pretty stand up on his part, because it clearly was bothering him, but instead he said it had no effect what so ever on the way he threw the ball, he said it felt good, could get his feet set and put what he wanted on the ball, etc. He wasked this several times...he wouldn't give them a thing on it...the only thing he did say was that the brace he was wearing bent his knee in a little bit and it didn't help when he tripped over his own feet on that sack...that was it though.

    I never really had an opinion on Flacco before - although during that Super Bowl run last year I thought he played as well as anyone I've ever seen - but this press conference had me thinkjng he was an alright guy. I think the guy must look at a Tom Brady across the field and think...that guy has never complained about one single injury in his entire career...not a one...that's the way it's done, I'm going to do the same. Peyton Manning wouldn't of done something like that.
