“I’d like to see all the fans in Washington, southern Maryland and northern Virginia — let us be your AFC team,” Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told the media according to CBSSports.com on Sunday.  “And you can be our NFC team.”

Let’s not and say we did.

It’s a nice thought that the Ravens are interested in growing their fan base outside of just the Baltimore area, but Redskins fans have no interest in picking up an AFC team to cheer for.  Likewise, Ravens fans want nothing to do with the cross-dressing pig fans in Washington.

But it was the appropriate PR thing to say after the Annapolis practice in mid-August.

Harbaugh’s quote actually makes it seem that the Ravens practice tour is intended to build their fan base across the DMV.  All along I had thought that it was to try and make up for killing training camp at McDaniel College.

  1. Harbaugh obviously has no clue about the DC/Baltimore rivalry. Seems he’s out of touch with the fans again.

  2. I agree. He is sort of out of touch with this one. Can’t have ever been a Colts fan and root for the Redskins.

  3. Are you kidding me. Harbaugh doesn’t have a clue , he better read up or talk to a few of the older coaches about the Baltimore / DC relationship . The more he speaks the less I like him . I really do fear he lacks the capability of taking this team to a super bowl . He should have a front office job in a suit and tie and let the coaching go to a person who is capable.

  4. Did Harbaugh fall down two flights of steps and crack his dome? Who in this town gives a shit about being a Redskins fan? What a dumbshit comment. Although this doesn’t happen often, I have to agree with MGW, Harbaugh is way out of touch with the fans on this one. Would he say that if he was still in Philly? They would have egged his house. Read up on your Baltimore sports history, Johnny Boy. You are the only guy in town dumber than Chow…

  5. Mystery man, glad to see you back. I though you got lost down in Dundalk. Harbaugh is turning himself into a laughingstock. Next he will say that we should adopt the Indianoplace as the AFC South team…not in this lifetime knucklehead! Some people in this forum blame Harbaugh and his coaching staff for a lot things and his stupidity in this case is evident!

  6. John Habaugh is starting to become a Richard Head…
