Ravens' John Harbaugh delivers motivational message to help prevent spread of coronavirus

Ravens' John Harbaugh delivers motivational message to help prevent spread of coronavirus

If you've ever wondered how John Harbaugh prepares the Ravens for a game, his message to Maryland regarding the coronavirus might give you a slight idea.

In a video posted by Governor Larry Hogan, Baltimore's head coach gave an encouraging message for how to properly prevent the disease from spreading. He even went and put it into a football context. 

"We're facing adversity here," Harbaugh said. "This is a challenge, but like any great team, we face challenges together, and we have an outstanding gameplan.

"No. 1, stay home," he said. "That's how we slow this opponent down. No. 2, stay calm. We can't win with panic. No. 3, stay engaged. There are so many plays we can make. Give blood, donate to our foodbank, be a hero in our neighborhood. No. 4, let's take care of our families. Let's engage with one another, let's spend time together, maybe get some things done around the house that we've been putting off for a while."

Whether it's a designing defensive scheme to shut down Tom Brady's Patriots, working on new ways to free up running lanes for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' league-best rushing attack or laying out a four-step plan to help flatten the coronavirus curve in the United States, Harbaugh knows how to deliver a message. 

"We are a team, we want to win this thing," he said. "We are in it together, so let's win it together."

Ravens' Marlon Humphrey gets creative for morning workout, climbs rock hill

Ravens' Marlon Humphrey gets creative for morning workout, climbs rock hill

With the NFL season on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, the beginning of OTAs and other training sessions have been delayed. Therefore, players have had to get creative with their workouts based on their surroundings.

From truck pushing to weight-lifting sessions in mom and dad's driveway, there has been no shortage of unique workouts across the league. However, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey may have just claimed the title of most creative.

On Monday, the star defender shared a video on Twitter of a workout he and his brothers participated in. The three looked to be focusing on cardio and strength-building, but not in the way it's typically done. Finding a large pile of gravel and rocks, they took turns running up the terrain. It's easy to feel the burn in your thighs and calves just looking at it.

Humphrey and his brothers made the exercise look rather easy, though it is certainly anything but that. Even the smallest piece of gravel on flat ground can sometimes trip someone up, and here, the cornerback is running up a hill composed entirely of it.

After former Ravens safety Eric Weddle responded to the video by letting Humphrey know just how insane the workout is, Humphrey admitted it didn't last long.

If this type of tricky surface isn't slowing Humphrey down, there isn't much that can. When the NFL season does begin, it could be a long year for opposing wide receivers who are tasked with somehow escaping his coverage.
