Not sure what the rest of you think about this, but I feel John Harbaugh has really gone out of his way for a school he only has a tangential relationship with (he played at not that Miami in college). First, he enabled/supported the courtship of his DC and then publicly came out with very positive quotes about Greg going back to coach at Michigan. In the aggressive NFL coaching ranks, he owes us nothing nor does he have to add the extra bit of good PR. Actually, he could have even been a detriment to the process if he so chose. However, he is a Brady backer and I must say this halo effect is starting to work. Positive news regarding the program is at a premium right now in this early transition stage and to wrap up this recruiting class. I must admit I am more of a fan of John than I was before (just can't like the Ravens though).
Harbaugh is really helping us out, John that is
Baltimore rules...49ers drool.
babies drool as well.
My dog drools as well.
What does this all mean?
Some poor misguided 49ers fan tried to neg you, but I got your back, yo! Neg negated.
I'll always respect Baltimore, but I will never say that they "rule". It just makes my stomach churn.
It is more of a euphemism on the Harbaugh brothers. I don't mind Baltimore. I hope Jim goes 0-16, Lions style.
Nah. I wont wish that upon him. But I know with the cruddy FO San Fran has, Jimmay doesn't have very long to get that team turned around.
someone say my name?
Harbaugh + the Smith Brothers = Douchimus Prime.
Baltimore = the real browns.
this is why I hate the Ravens (side note: Pittsburgh wore black arm bands while Cleveland didn't have a team)... well that and I'm a Bengals fan.
You must be especially pleased with Donovan Warren these days. :-)
I guess I'm a Green Bay fan, but they're doing well in the playoffs, so it's easy for me to say that. What I really love is seeing famous alums of schools I despise falling flat on their faces in the pros.
to GTFO of Ohio is pretty cool in my book
Artie was getting bled dry by that crappy stadium lease in Cleveland, especially after the Indians left. Baltimore would help him regain his money, and the fact that he got out of the losing atmosphere of that city helped him get a Super Bowl.
The fans were still filling that stadium up every Sunday to watch the team play. Of course, the Curse of Cleveland claimed another great team, so whatever. The management has been incompetent for decades too. I can't believe they fired Mangini after just 3 years. Where did we see that before? Hmm...
If you're interested in a MGoBlog-level treatment of the Browns, clevelandfrowns.com is a really good resource.
Very classy that Harbaugh supported the move!
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly... Hills, that is.
It was pretty cool to hear how he was backing us like that, it seems like we'd been lacking a lot of that positivity for a while. Or we just couldn't hear it over all the grumbling.
JH didn't have to say much do the things for M to get their new D coordinator. Very classy move indeed.
but am I drunk too? What the hell does that post even mean? I have read it 10 times and still don't understand it.
Remind me to send him a red cap and a speedo.
he seems like a good dude always wanting the best for his friends. like heading to michigan.
He did go to Pioneer. He was several hundred feet from nearly being a Michigan man by association. It almost counts.
Seriously though, I think it's very classy of him to be encouraging like this and not speak ill of his now former DC. Thanks, John.
Harbs = good people.
OLD SCHOOL football coach. Both Harbaugh boys are a carbon copy of their Dad, whom I've had the honor of having an extended conversation with about Michigan football. (Jack attended pretty much every Ravens game this season. Wonder where he's going to spend the bulk of his time next year?)
