Pointing a finger at Harbaugh

We seem to have a little difference of opinion about the Ravens on the NFL Network.

Commentator Michael Lombardi said the Ravens will rebound from their loss to the Steelers and be fine down the stretch even with a challenging schedule.

“They’ll respond,” he said. “This has typically been the case under John Harbaugh.”

Heath Evans takes a different view — in fact, he said Harbaugh is a problem with this team.

“I think there’s a dysfunction on this team,” Evans said, referring to a recent report at Yahoo! Sports that detailed what one player called a “mutiny” against Harbaugh.

“They should have wiped the floor in a lot of ways with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and they didn’t get it done,” Evans said. “Talk about mental toughness. Mental toughness takes advantage and takes care of teams inside the division.”

Evans then summed up by saying: “I don’t think they have a chance to play championship football when there’s not enough respect for the head coach.”

Evans seems to have missed the point of Michael Silver’s Yahoo article. Silver referred to Harbaugh as “perhaps the league's most underrated authority figure” and cited the “mutiny” that turned into an exchange of ideas between players and coach for “Harbaugh's deft handling of that emotional give-and-take.”

But if the Ravens stumble again, expect to hear more about “dysfunction.”

Browns WR Jarvis Landry tells Tom Brady 'the leagues needs your voice right now'

Browns WR Jarvis Landry tells Tom Brady 'the leagues needs your voice right now'

Tom Brady is one of -- if not the most -- well-known and well-respected players in the National Football League. When it comes to star power, he is at the top of the list.

Now, Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry is asking Brady to use his strong voice to help NFL players achieve their goals as they enter the 2020 season. Landry recently took to Twitter to ask Brady to participate in discussions between the league and players.

It's unclear what exactly Landry is referring to when he says he and other players need Brady's voice. It could have to do with the fight for social justice in the country, and it could relate to the situation surrounding the upcoming NFL campaign amid the coronavirus pandemic.

With training camp set to start at the end of July, there are still many unanswered questions about how the season will work. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that testing protocols and the length of the preseason are two issues that remain unsolved. The league has been working to put measures in place to limit player exposure including banning jersey swaps, which did not go over well with many players.

As for the preseason, the schedule has been cut down to two games, but the NFLPA has voted to have the entire preseason eliminated. There was also a report that the league proposed a 35% pay cut for players to counteract the revenue losses the pandemic will create. 

Players have been vocal about having their demands met, and Landry is now asking an influential player like Brady to help get things to where they need to be.

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey set to host garage sale Sunday, July 12

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey set to host garage sale Sunday, July 12

Offseason. What offseason? There is no offseason for Baltimore Ravens standout cornerback Marlon Humphrey who announced he's throwing a garage sale Sunday, July 12 in Owings Mills.

"Garage sale this Sunday! (Owings Mills, MD) New year means a lot needs to be left behind," Humphrey said. "Will have furniture, shoes, lights, and of course some Ravens gear 😎Everything must go..!"

Humphrey's post received north of 1,500 likes in two hours so it may be fair to say there will be a decent turnout. 

NFL players having garage sales is sort of a peculiar situation, it doesn't happen quite often. Former Green Bay Packers running back Eddy Lacy had one in 2017 which drew a large enough crown to wrap around the entire block.

In that instance, ten shoppers were allowed in at a time to peruse the items and Lacy said that all of the money will go to charity, with any leftover unsold items being given to the Freedom House homeless shelter in Green Bay, the Los Angeles Times reported. 

Humprey is entering his fourth season with the Ravens.
