Why Can’t That Be Us?
John Harbaugh sat across the table from Ravens’ team executives and laid out a vision for the organization.
Harbaugh, then a little-known position coach and former special teams coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, talked about culture, and respect, and family and tradition. He discussed the values he wanted in his team, and shared the process it would take to get there.
In the meeting, he delivered a message that resonated with those in charge of the franchise. He talked directly and openly about winning championships. Multiple championships. Then he leaned forward and smiled.
“Why can’t we be a championship team?” Harbaugh asked during his interview in 2008.
