John Harbaugh Not Worried About Losing Job

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh’s job seemed secure after a 4-1 start to the season. However, a 1-4 stretch since the team’s hot start has him firmly on the hot seat as the team is in danger of missing out on the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.

After his team’s 23-16 loss to the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, Harbaugh told reporters he isn’t thinking about his job security at the moment, and expects the team to improve.

“I’ve never been somebody that ever worried about keeping a job. It’s always been, for me, dealing with a job,” Harbaugh said. “I feel really good about the way this team has been coached for the last years and for the last number of weeks we’ve been in this season. No regrets. Never been any regrets here with me. We’ll keep fighting.”

Despite his optimism, it was noted that while none of the players in the locker room publicly called for their head coach to be fired, or complained about the play calling, safety Eric Weddle is the only player that publicly supported their head coach.

“I love Harbs. I love everything he’s about,” Weddle said. “He’s one of the best head coaches in the league. I know he’s our leader, and he’s going to get the brunt of it. This team believes in him. We have his back. It would be unfortunate if anything happens, whether it’s during the season or after. I don’t think that’s the right way to go. That’s not my call.”

Despite their current form, Harbaugh doesn’t plan on making any changes to his coaching staff, a point he reiterated with reporters.

“I don’t see that,” Harbaugh said. “We’ll look at everything. We always do in the bye week. I think the biggest thing we need to do is get healthy and get fresh.”

Quarterback Joe Flacco also added than he doesn’t think the team needs to make any changes.

“We have a lot of confidence in what we can do as a team,” Flacco said. “There are a lot of teams out there that aren’t quite in the position that they want to be in. We’re just one of them. Obviously, the name of the game in this league is winning football games, and there is always going to be pressure internally and externally when you’re not winning games like you want to. We understand that, and we just have to do more.”
