Ravens stick together regardless of weather

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the bad weather his team is dealing with this week kind of comes with the territory in the AFC North.

Harbaugh discussed all of that with the media in a conference call on Monday. Bad weather happens often in the AFC North, a division that has Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Cleveland with Baltimore, all cities that wind up facing cold or harsh weather at times during the back end of the football season. 

"As far as the weather, if you play in the AFC North, you play in the North," Harbaugh said in the conference call. "You play in outdoor stadiums-- you have to be built for that. That's something we try to take into account when we draft players, when we build our schemes in, and it's going to be important moving foward."

The obvious problems with Hurricane Sandy on Sunday night and Monday and then into Tuesday provided an issue that's a little unusual. Baltimore was trying to prepare for its first game after the bye, a road game in Cleveland, but coaches and players were pushed hard on Sunday and Monday due to Sandy.

Harbaugh said the coaches simply tried to keep the week as normal as possible simply because they needed to get things ready for the players, just like it would be any other week. 

“As far as the hurricane stuff – from a coaching standpoint—we have certain things that we have to get done," Harbaugh said. "Monday and Tuesday are really huge work days for the coaches as far as game planning and preparing and getting practices ready and all of that. That work has to be done, so we’ll be doing that. "

With the Hurricane having passed through, it looks like the Ravens are ready for a normal week as they get ready for the Browns on Sunday.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Michael Pierce responds to last week's dismissal from practice

Kick off your Monday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Last week, defensive tackle Michael Pierce was dismissed from practice after showing up in "less than ideal shape" according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Pierce joined WSNP-FM 105.5 Friday where he responded to being dismissed from practice. “Throughout the offseason, I tend to lift more than run,” Pierce said. “Being a nose guard, I want to be strong or what not. I, honestly, just mismanaged my running a little bit.”

2. On the other hand, tight end Mark Andrews looks "bigger, faster and stronger" Zrebiec said. Andrews had a standout year last season as a rookie with three touchdowns and 34 catches for 552 yards. Zrebiec said Andrews has not slowed down and will be an even bigger asset to the Ravens offense this season.
