Is it true that both of you liked Jim better than John?
Sorry guys, harbowl.com is taken. My phone tried to correct that to “hairbowl.com” and I’m honestly too scared to look that one up.

Today was the beginning of voluntary workouts in the NFL. Most of the news revolved around who wasn’t participating — Drew Brees, Wes Welker, Matt Forte, Ray Rice etc… However, for last year’s crop of rookies this is the first time they get this sort of pre season activity, last year they were locked out.
The last time we saw the Baltimore Ravens, they were choking away the AFC championship game with a Lee Evans TD drop and a missed field goal chip shot. Still haven’t gotten over that one. Today, Baltimore’s coach, John Harbaugh, addressed the players who came to take part in activities.

"Here’s a reality of this league, you never pick up where you left off the season before. We’re never back to a minute left in the AFC championship game ready to take it to the Super Bowl. We’re not there until we earn our way back there again. Every team starts over, and the foundation for us starts right now. We build the whole thing from scratch.
“My point is this is the beginning. That game, that loss, was tough. We all still feel it inside. Will we ever get over the sting and disappointment? Our way of moving forward is to have the best offseason and the best training camp of any team in the NFL. Then, when we start the season, we will be the most prepared team in the league. We’ll go to work and do the things we have to do. We’ll see how good we can be today and then tomorrow and then the next day.”

I’m not picky, I’ll take whatever football news I can get. This is just the first step towards the new season. Tomorrow the schedule will be announced (7:00pm EST) and next week is the draft.

And a happy new year.

And a happy new year.

In the Civil War, it was said that in certain battles, it was brother against brother. For those that don’t think football is war, the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers just went through 4 quarters of battle. And in the middle of it? Brothers, on each side.
The best part is, each Harbaugh will live to fight another day.

If you have the NFL Network, and you aren’t watching the Harbowl, now would be a great time to tune in.
6-6 going into the 4th quarter.
Neither team letting up or hitting any less harder.
Edit: Ravens just scored. 13-6. Lots of time left.

“[W]e’re going to try to get after him like we always do. It’s going to be real important, and he knows that. That’s a key to stopping him. You’ve got to get him down. You can’t let him extend plays, and if he does extend plays, you’ve got to cover those guys, and that’s easier said than done.”
He’s a tough guy. He had the broken nose. I was glad we broke his nose and then I was very impressed that he played through it. Obviously, you can throw very effectively with a broken nose – he proved that.”
