Todd Haley Berates John Harbaugh


After John Harbaugh called a timeout with 5 seconds left,the Ravens scored another touchdown to beat the Chiefs 34-13.

Walking off the field, Haley angrily scolded Harbaugh for his perceived bush league move. Harbaugh said to him “those guys are trying to make my team and the game is 60 minutes long.” Harbs then waved his hand at him like “whatever” (WNST).

Though Harbaugh began his press conference by apologizing to Haley and the Chiefs, it really wasn’t necessary. I had heard from the Fox announcers that the Chiefs were treating last week’s game against the Bucs like a practice. Here’s hoping the last drive helped give these Ravens jobs on the practice squad or somewhere else when the eventual cuts arrive.

Haley famously pointed his finger at Josh McDaniels last season, upset that McDaniels kept scoring while ahead. Haley, to his credit, had his young team playing hard last year and will earn major equity if the offense survives the turmoil of the Baldwin injury and loss of Charlie Weis.

    The story you’re linking to is complete BS. Not only is it perfectly clear from watching the footage, but by John Harbaugh’s own admission he went up to Haley to explain his actions (Exhibit A that he knew it was wrong). Haley said “I don’t know about that”. Then Harbaugh kept defending himself. Haley appeared to accept it.

    The idea that Haley berated him is total fiction coming from an overly sensitive Ravens outlet.

    Haley is a giant crybaby. Why should Harbaugh have to explain the situation? Haley should have been thanking him for allowing his team the opportunity at a Goal Line Stand. They could have treated it like they were trying to stop a game winning touchdown. These are preseason games for a reason, it’s all about the tape, nobody cares about the final score and he should know that.
