This is pretty awesome. After Baltimore's loss to the Steelers Sunday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh is telling whining fans (or, well, at least one whining fan) to shove it. I'm glad the Steelers could play some role in this, and I highly encourage both Harbaugh and the fans to keep talking, because what Steelers fan doesn't love schadenfreude involving the Ravens?â†µ
"I'm proud of this football team," Harbaugh said in response to one call. "I'm proud of our defense. I'm proud of our offense. We will fight our tails off to be the best team we can every single week.â†µ
"If that's not enough for you then go find another team to cheer for. If you're not proud of this team then you don't know football."â†µ
Fight! Fight! Fight! You can hear the entire context here, in the audio segment about Todd Heap's status. It's basically a response to a pointedly-worded question about assistant coach Clarence Brooks.â†µ
CALLER: I heard you just two weeks ago say that [Terrence Cody] wasn't playing more because he hasn't been getting off his blocks, his pad level is not right, or his lean, and he's running around blockers. Can you tell me why Clarence Brooks still has his job if in five months Terrence couldn't be taught those three basics of defensive play?â†µ
HARBAUGH: I'm not even going there with this guy.â†µ
This basically just sounds like a response to this particular call, and not really a comment about Ravens fans in general, but it will be a lot of fun if this spirals and fans get upset.
