  1. Re: Are Roman and Wink carrying Harbs?

    Absolutely not.

    Harbs always has his players ready to play. We've had a lack of good talent on the rosters since the 2012 season and besides that injury riddled 2015 season, the Ravens have always made the seasons interesting. If I remember right, even in the years that the Ravens didn't make the playoffs, (besides 2015) they didn't lose a playoff spot until late in those seasons.

    I think he finally has some good talent to work with and good coordinators, and we are seeing the results. You don't see the Ravens players pulling moves like the Browns last night, with constant targeting and the MMA fight at the end. I think that type of behavior stems from the team culture, from the coach on down.

    He definitely needs good coordinators to succeed, but I think the winning, respectful culture that he has built in Baltimore is really underrated. For those people that want one of the coordinators to be the head coach for the Ravens, remember that once a coordinator becomes a head coach, they have a lot more on their plate than just calling plays. For examples, look at how Jim Caldwell and Chuck Pagano did once they left Baltimore.

    Did Mantle & company make the Yankees sustaining winners during the 50's - or was it Casey Stengal managing to harness all the star power in the dugout to get them to pull all the loads of the season and World Series in the same direction. As we have seen in numerous teams, just having stars on the team is not enough - the TEAM has to work as a TEAM. It takes strong leadership to keep a organization moving forward over time - Harbs has kept the Ravens moving forward during his 12 years - in some cases making decent tasting lemonade out of the lemons that ended up on the roster for whatever reasons.

    C’mon GWNR. This is basically the same system GRO ran in San Fran only with a far superior athlete at QB. So that being said the ROs work soo much better because Lamar is so elusive.

    I’m not saying it’s a bad system. The whole castle has bought into it. Lamar, Andrews, Red Thor, Boyle , Ingram , and Hollywood. They make the system work. Right system , right players. I applaud EDC for getting guys GRO needs. GRO has the perfect system for this team as constructed now. But what does Harbs have to with it? He’s just a figure head.

    Again, Harbaugh took an all time average team and won a championship with it. So LOL at anyone saying he's being carried by anyone when he got the team to flip the switch in the postseason.

    So when the scheme isn't working (Trestman and MM) it's on Harbaugh for not haivng his own scheme.

    But when the scheme is working he gets no credit.

    Do you seriously not understand how unfair that assessment is?

    It’s not. Harbs tried to force the WCO for years. It’s failed miserably. If Harbs had or has wanted a “run centric” offense after the Super Bowl ....then we coulda had a OC that had that system. Same on Defense. “Organized Chaos” is what works here best. We left that and went “bend don’t break” and now we’re basically back to Chaos and Surprise ....we’re winning with guys like Bynes! I’m not giving Harbs credit for someone else’s design. On either side of the ball.

    I didn't say that Garrett should replace Harbaugh. I said that if Roman wants to be a head coach the Ravens should make him theirs and the Ravens should shop Harbaugh around - maybe to Dallas because Jerry Jones should be ready to move on from Garrett.

    I guess I need to be expressing myself MORE SIMPLY here - connecting all the dots for those who can't

    LOL

    That's not his coaching style.

    That's what you don't understand.

    You're literally saying no matter what happens with this team Harbaugh won't get credit. IMO that lacks a complete understanding of what his coaching style is, how its a useful coaching style and why its successful.

    The entire intent (initial premise) of this thread has me SMH- its a joke!

    John Harbaugh has been outstanding through many seasons and flavors keeping this team in contention year after year!

    You may call him cornball, or mushy gushy, or whatever you want to call him.... but

    any man humble enough to surround himself with coordinators SMARTER than himself and make it all work - is CEO and high level leadership material!

    John is a top 5 head coach easily in this league. His character and integrity outshine the pompous genius traits that are sought after by so many at the head coach position where it leads to a 1 in a million Belichick hire..... but the vast majority of these- "so called geniuses" sit at the bottom of the division because they lack the character and steadiness and vision of a John Harbaugh!

    This Ravens equation fails miserably without him at the helm!

    CEO / Cheerleader is a coaching style?

    Part of being a good coach is more than Xs and Os theory crafting.
