The Adversity Could Still Strengthen His Legacy:
Today we talked about the nightmare scenario. The conversation is more interesting if things go south, because it means the era could be coming to an end. Ravens fans must understand however, that they would be losing a lot if they parted with Jack Harbaugh’s son. The grass may not be greener on the other side. Harbaugh has been a great coach who has done great things. The Ravens are in the driver seat for a division title. If they win the division after a brutal four game losing streak, Harbaugh could continue to build on his impressive resume.
It is also important to remember that Harbaugh is not facing an ultimatum. If the Ravens don’t make the playoffs, we don’t know how Bisciotti will react. Playoff football is a very real possibility. In the playoffs anything can happen and a Super Bowl would elevate the Ravens coach into the pantheon of greatness.
No matter what happens, Harbaugh will always have my admiration and respect. To me he is a legend. That doesn’t change in my book. The Ravens have been treated to some incredible moments under Harbaugh’s leadership. The court of public opinion is not always a fair place. The Ravens are at a crossroads moment. Baltimore could reach the heights they are accustomed to. They could also fall into troubling murky waters. Only when the future unfolds, will we have the full picture.
