"I have every expectation, every plan to be here as long as the Ravens want me here, and I believe that they want me here," Harbaugh said after the Chargers defeated the Ravens 23-17.

"And I think that's been made clear by them to me over the last few weeks, and like I said a couple weeks ago or last week, I love everybody in the organization. There's just great people and expect to go forward with that as long as that's what they want to do. And I do believe that's what they want to do, and let's roll."....http://www.espn.com/...-contract-talks

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

“Put on 20 pounds of muscle over the offseason,” Hurst said. “I’m kind of on a mission this year. I’ve got a lot to prove.”

Im satisfied with him coming back - hes earned it after this year. That said I think the most valuable coach on this team is Martindale. He is consistent and makes adjustments.

When he was 4-5 he earned coming back?  

 

BTW he said weeks ago he didn't want an extension.  How many of his assistants are willing to bet on his ability to continue to grow this.  I would expect as many as possible to look for job security.

It is relevant.  He could not get the team going in the right direction.  If Joe had not gotten hurt he would not have changed QBs.  Then they would not have gotten into the playoffs.

No.  If his hand hadn't been forced he would have stayed the course just like 2012.

If he hadn't had his hand forced he would have been fired soon after that point.

Stop it.

At 4-5  this team could have quit.

Instead they went all out and banded together.

The fact that there are players saying they don't want to leave, love it here and hope they are back next year speaks volumes to how much the players believe in John....and Lamar.

Players don't want to play for shitty coaches.

Yeah as Lamar Jackson saved his season. Great year as really Jackson rescued the Ravens and saved the coach's job.

Maybe. While I tend to mostly agree, Gus Edwards really came on and the defense started playing better. I'm not convinced there's wouldn't have been some improvement if Joe had stayed healthy.

Why does the coach not have the pulse of the team?

The results say he didn't have the pulse of the team.  He was forced into successful moves.  He doesn't make moves that are successful of his own free will.

As Ravens turn to 2019 season, Greg Roman's role on offense can't be overlooked

As coach John Harbaugh works toward a long-term contract extension with the Ravens, his offense has entered a watershed offseason. Flacco is out; Jackson is in. Jackson’s development will shape the contours of the Ravens offense, but so will the guy overseeing it. Harbaugh made the unpopular decision to retain offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg after last season. Now he faces a risky proposition: Keep Mornhinweg and risk losing Roman? Or promote Roman and fire Mornhinweg?

 

What to do.  Keep talent around or keep a bestie around?

A. Retain Roman, lose Marty.

 

B. If that doesnt work, start anew - fresh young OC who can coach/mentor LJ.
