Although strong safety Bernard Pollard has already declared he'll play Sunday night against the New England Patriots despite a rib contusion, Harbaugh wasn't definitive on his status. “We will see about Bernard,” he said. “He's got a little rib deal in there. It's just going to come down to him and how he can deal with that pain.” End zone Harbaugh praised rookie kicker Justin Tucker, who connected on field goals from 56, 51 and 48 yards. “He did a great job,” he said.

If you think the Ravens are being coy about their running back situation, Lorenzo Taliaferro wants to let you in on a little secret. Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak doesn't let the players know in advance how he'll divvy up the carries on game day, either. "He doesn't really tell us who's going to go in during the week," said Taliaferro, the Ravens' rookie running back. "[It's] … whoever they call and put in. We'll all step out there and get the job done. " There remains a shroud of mystery about the Ravens' running game as they face the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised the late-game adjustments on defense in Sunday's 23-21 win over Cleveland that kept the Browns off the scoreboard in the final quarter and gave the offense the chance to complete its comeback. "That's what won the game, the resolve of our guys to finish the game - probably spearheaded by our defense in terms of the three-and-outs," Harbaugh said. "I think we had three out of four three-and-outs at the end, and two in a row in the fourth quarter.

It's hard to find a quiet moment when you're a head coach in the NFL. Your time, especially during the season, feels scripted, almost down to the minute. There are meetings and phone calls to conduct, practices and drills to oversee, video to analyze and egos to assuage. If you're a details man, there are hourly fires to put out, and if your fan base is restless, the tension can feel suffocating. When John Harbaugh and Steve Spagnuolo take the field for Sunday's game between the Baltimore Ravens and St. Louis Rams, it will represent the culmination of a frantic and stressful week.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh joined the flood of congratulatory text messages delivered to Orioles manager Buck Showalter. The Orioles clinched their first American League East division title since 1997 on Tuesday night with a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Showalter visited Harbaugh at the Ravens' training complex last year and took part in a coin toss during a Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium in 2012, when the Orioles qualified for the playoffs as a wild-card team. The Ravens won the Super Bowl after that season.

It's difficult to get too upset with Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda starting Jim Harbaugh at quarterback. If Harbaugh struggles at Jacksonville, Marchibroda can pull him as quickly as he did last week, and insert Eric Zeier.At least on the surface, the coach's decision appears clean, safe, almost predictable. He's going with the veteran. He's going with the incumbent. He's going with the player the Ravens acquired for a third-round draft pick last winter.Controversy avoided.But maybe not for long.

Jim Harbaugh or Vinny Testaverde? The Ravens are better off with Harbaugh.Harbaugh or Jim Kelly? That's not even close. The Ravens are much better off with Harbaugh.That's not to say they assured themselves of a winning future with Saturday's trade for Harbaugh, 34, who led the Colts to the playoffs in 1995 and 1996.Sorry, no deal comes with such a guarantee.But the chances are better now, no doubt about it.This is a good trade, a very good trade.Harbaugh is a strong leader and comeback specialist -- the anti-Vinny, basically.

You have to give John Harbaugh a lot of credit for how he handled the twisted quarterback situation on the very first NFL team of which he has been in charge. Not "should" give him credit. Not "ought to." Have to. Above all else, Harbaugh is a man of his word. In August, when he was down to one quarterback, he refused to snip Troy Smith out of the picture. No matter how ill Smith was, no matter how well Joe Flacco played, no matter how convenient it would have been. Harbaugh didn't waver.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh was asked after the team's 23-21 win over the Cleveland Browns whether a recent report that he wanted to release former running back Ray Rice shortly after his Feburary domestic violence arrest was true. Harbaugh initially didn't answer, calling it a "football day," and said he would address it Monday. Then he elaborated, and defended how the team handled the situation. Here is his full comment on the ESPN report: "This is a football day, Jeff.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh isn't discussing injuries these days, especially ones involving a player who hasn't seen game action since last season. Whenever cornerback Lardarius Webb is asked about his playing status, he makes it clear that it's not his call. "You can ask John Harbaugh," Webb said Wednesday when surrounded by reporters in front of his locker. "If you interview him, ask him that question. " Webb's status has become a weekly mystery. After leaving a July 25 training camp practice with a lower back injury, Webb missed the entire preseason.

When the Ravens travel to play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, there will be several familiar faces on the opposing sideline. That includes Browns first-year head coach Mike Pettine, a former Ravens outside linebackers coach under John Harbaugh who got his start with the organization breaking down games in the video department for former Ravens coach Brian Billick. A former standout high school football coach in Pennsylvania, Pettine became a defensive coordinator with the New York Jets when he left the Ravens' staff to work under Rex Ryan and then with the Buffalo Bills prior to landing the Browns' job after last season.

When Ravens coach John Harbaugh scanned the audience in the team auditorium Monday afternoon, the scene was dramatically different than it was for much of last week. There weren't multiple rows of television cameras to chronicle his responses to questions about Ray Rice, a player who was no longer in the organization. There weren't dozens of media outlets represented in the room, few of them interested in talking about a football game. The attention surrounding Rice's release and the way the organization and the NFL handled the running back's assault on his then-fiancee was not the overwhelming topic of conversation at the team facility Monday after it dominated dialogue around the Ravens last week.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday explained the decision to slot second-year safety Matt Elam in at the nickel cornerback slot in Thursday's 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, which he said allows the team to take advantage of its safety depth and added a run nickel package to its future plans. “We're able to do it because Matt Elam can do it,” Harbaugh said Monday. “He's done a great job of learning how to play in the slot, and that's not an easy thing to do, especially for a safety.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Today's game against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants can answer a big question about the Ravens. Are they playoff caliber? "I don't know if we worry about that at this point in the season," tight end Todd Heap said. "We're going in to win this game. And we'll let people talk about that after that happens." Said linebacker Ray Lewis: "For us, it's just the next game up. We take the same approach with every game, and the guys do a great job with it."

Hours after the Ravens terminated the contract of  Ray Rice  on Monday,  John Harbaugh  stood behind a microphone and in front of a horde of cameras and reporters and addressed one of the most difficult days in franchise history. Where was owner  Steve Bisciotti  or general manager  Ozzie Newsome ? Both were criticized by the local and national media for their failure to make themselves available to answer questions. Bisciotti, however, defended the decision in an interview with The Sun earlier today.

Don't bother asking the Ravens about redemption. They're not interested in framing the 2014 season that way. In fact, they'd just as soon not discuss last season - 8-8 record, no playoffs, lousy statistics for big-money players, off-field embarrassments - at all. “That is for you guys to talk about,” wide receiver Torrey Smith said, summing up the general outlook. “Last year was last year.” But with a team built largely around the same core of star players and decision-makers, the Ravens know questions loom.
