What in the world came over John Harbaugh this morning? Ravens fans, you might want to circle the Sept. 23 game against the New England Patriots on your calendar. Might be a few extra fireworks at M&T Bank Stadium that night. Things could definitely be a little frosty between the Ravens coach and Mr. Smiley himself, Patriots coach Bill Belichick. I say that because Harbaugh -- who is normally affable, but guarded with the media -- opened up and took a few shots at the Patriots this morning on  98 Rock . Did I say a few shots?

Ravens coach John Harbaugh woke up Monday and watched the tape from Sunday's game again. It was even more enjoyable than witnessing it from his spot on the sideline. "It was a lot more fun watching the tape … when I already know the outcome," said Harbaugh, a day after the Ravens had one of their most explosive offensive performances in team history and routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17 at Raymond James Stadium. "But any time you see a touchdown, it's fun. It's a joy, it's just a great feeling.

It's always interesting and slightly awkward whenever Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is interviewed by his predecessor, Brian Billick, who now works for FOX Sports. I can't help but wonder what they are really thinking. Also, for some reason, I can't stop staring at the cabinets behind Harbs. Maybe it's because I'm buying a house. Anyway, here are Ravens coaches past and present discussing the win over the Browns, Ray Lewis and more.

When the Ravens signed three free agents in the offseason to boost their offense, only the acquisition of veteran receiver Steve Smith seemed to create a buzz around town. After six games, all three additions and center Jeremy Zuttah have had a significant impact, but none greater than Smith. He gave the Ravens two elements they were missing from last season - a go-to receiver who could work the entire field, and a hard-nose veteran with a strong work ethic Smith has 35 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns so far this year.

We've heard from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and newly-signed defensive back Corey Graham in person and we also chatted with re-signed linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo on a conference call. And while we wait to meet with starting linebacker Jameel McClain, who is upstairs crossing T's and dotting I's, I'll pass along the highlights of our conversation with Harbaugh, including an interesting tidbit on Jah Reid's new role. Harbaugh on the team putting an emphasis on improving their special teams with today's signings: “It's certainly something we thought coming out of the season that we really needed to do. We weren't as good there as we need to be. We need to be more explosive, cover kicks better.

As he begins his sixth training camp as coach of the Ravens, John Harbaugh sees change everywhere around the Under Armour Performance Center. There are a couple of new members of his coaching staff, a revamped roster and a shiny new trophy at the team facility. Harbaugh's focus, however, is not on what happened last year or even during an offseason where the Ravens rebuilt their defense and signed their quarterback to the biggest contract the organization has ever given out. It's not even on the Denver Broncos, the Ravens' opponent in their regular-season opener Sept.

Sunday was a pretty good day for the Harbaugh family. Not only did John Harbaugh and Ravens vanquish their AFC North rivals in the Pittsburgh Steelers in convincing fashion by a 35-7 score, but Jim Harbaugh earned his first win as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, who whipped the Seattle Seahawks, 33-17. John Harbaugh said he was an interested observer of his brother's game, watching the contest unfold during the NFL Network's Red Zone broadcast. "That was a great win for Jim," John Harbaugh said on Monday.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed that he spoke to his brother Jim after the San Francisco 49ers outlasted the New Orleans Saints , 36-32, Saturday evening. "We talked last night after the game," John Harbaugh said in his post-game comments. "He was pretty happy. I was happy for him. But I couldn't get quite as happy as he was. He was fired up, and I think he was really proud of his team. I'm proud of him. I'm proud of Jim. I'm proud of his staff over there.

With a daytime high of 98 degrees in Owings Mills according to Weather.com, staying cool at Ravens training camp was a challenge for the players and coaches on the practice fields. Wide receivers Torrey Smith and LaQuan Williams both dealt with leg cramps caused by dehydration, and at one point, free safety Ed Reed wondered aloud where the I.V. drips were. Fans who attended Thursday afternoon's session were treated to popsicles. Still, coach John Harbaugh said the hot and humid weather is a good barometer for how diligent the players were during the offseason.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh isn't sitting idly by waiting for the 2013 NFL draft to roll around on Thursday. This weekend, Harbaugh and other members of the Ravens organization, including senior vice president of public and community relations Kevin Byrne, competed in a Tough Mudder race in Gerrardstown, W.Va. This short video -- set to ear-rattling heavy metal music, of course -- posted on the team's official website shows the coach of the reigning Super Bowl champions climbing cargo nets and other obstacles, carrying logs or his teammates, cannon-balling into muddy ponds, swimming under obstacles, and crawling through mud. You know, if you're into that sort of thing.

TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Ravens were involved in a statement game on Sunday, and they sent the wrong message. If they wanted to prove they were a contending team after missing the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007, they failed. In fact, some of the same things that kept them from the playoffs in 2013 showed up again in a 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts before a crowd of 65,258 at Lucas Oil Stadium. It's not like Indianapolis had been dominant this seaosn.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday praised Joe Flacco's decision-making, especially his ability to deliver the ball quickly when under pressure on third down, as one of the things that contributed to one of the quarterback's better games in recent memory. Flacco threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns with a quarterback rating of 137.4 in the Ravens' 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, with a good chunk of that production coming on third down. “He made plays, and especially third down-and-long plays when he had pressure coming at him,” Harbaugh said.

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce can take his time healing his injured quadriceps. He can hang out in the whirlpool and get a couple of deep tissue massages. Get some more ultrasound treatments. If he wants, take another week or two off. I'm a supporter of the big back club and the Ravens have two of them in rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro (226 pounds) and, when he returns, in Pierce (230 pounds). Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis made a believer out of me. A team can have a home-run hitter at tailback, but there is nothing more demoralizing in football than a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 230-pound running back shoving the ball down your throat.

Steve Smith only has been with the Ravens for about six months, but his teammates and coaches are starting to get a better read on the veteran wide receiver. So when John Harbaugh approached Smith in the training room before the game against the Carolina Panthers and asked him the most general of questions, the Ravens coach listened to the one-word response and was content. It was all that he needed to hear. “I said, “How are you doing? You doing OK?' and he said, 'Nope,' ” Harbaugh said.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.

Just over 12 hours after his team defeated the Cleveland Browns, 23-16, at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday night, Ravens coach John Harbaugh delivered more positive news for Ravens fans on Friday afternoon. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is “doing well” rehabilitating his surgically repaired right Achilles tendon, and Harbaugh said he expects Suggs, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, to play sometime this season. It was the most definitive that Harbaugh has been about the status of Suggs since he suffered the injury in April.

A retired former Ravens linebacker, Brigance was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in 2007.

Days after Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe was barely able to hobble back to the huddle against the Cleveland Browns, he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to address the issue. Although Monroe isn't expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday Monroe won't play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers and could miss additional games. With the left tackle situation having reached emergency status, Monroe will be replaced in the starting lineup by undrafted rookie James Hurst.
