John Harbaugh comments

Playing in the NFL is seen as the opposite of a standard career path. Yet, just like you, the Ravens had to endure a long Monday this week.

After their losing their fourth straight game to the New York Jets on Sunday, Coach John Harbaugh called the team in for a meeting. According to ESPN, the meeting last two hours and 20 minutes. Harbaugh went over each of the team’s 123 plays, and pointed out all of the mistakes.

While that sounds pretty harsh and a little mind-numbing, Harbaugh said he’s not worried about the love-hate message.

“It starts with relationships; we have great relationships. I do like and love our guys. I told one of the guys in the meeting today, ‘I love you, but I despise you right now on that play. The guys get it; they are OK,” he said.

At the very least, Harbaugh’s message will probably stick around in the players’ heads for a while. The Ravens have this weekend off to think about their losses.
