On Monday Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told the media that he was “glad” the Ravens broke Ben Roethlisberger’s nose in their week 15 matchup.

Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com points out that the comment with made jokingly, but that the emotions of Steelers Week may have made the head say something that he wouldn’t typically say.

“I was glad we broke his nose,” Harbaugh said, with his tongue planted in his cheek, “and then I was very impressed that he played through it. Obviously, you can throw very effectively with a broken nose. He proved that.”

That comment seems like it’s more likely to come from Terrell Suggs than it is from John Harbaugh, but I like it. It might be Steelers week, but Harbaugh is still able to crack a few light-hearted jokes at the Steelers’ expense.

While most Ravens fans would agree with Baltimore’s head coach, the comment does come as a surprise.

What did you think of Harbaugh’s comment?
