Default John Harbaugh Fined

NFL fines Ravens coach John Harbaugh $15,000 for contact with official

The NFL has fined Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh $15,000 for making improper contact with an official during Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Harbaugh admitted Monday that he crossed a line when he demonstrated his displeasure about a roughing-the-passer flag thrown on Ravens LB Terrell Suggs to line judge Ron Marinucci. The NFL reinforced that violation with the fine on Tuesday.

"I was a little animated in describing the strike zone, and I think he understood the emotions of it," Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun, about his insistence that Suggs had made a legal hit on Bengals QB Carson Palmer.

"I'll make sure that I let him know that I think I was over the line in my animation without question, and that's never something you want to do. And the point is we had great conversations with those guys throughout the game. We respected – we disagreed and it was animated – but it was respectful throughout. And I know Ron understood that it was respectful, so it should be OK."

Ravens LB Ray Lewis joined Harbaugh in complaining about the officials following the Ravens' 15-10 loss.

I've got to say that I agreed with Harbaugh and Suggs on that call. Lets just put a princess dress on Palmer and be done with it.

I agree. That was an awful call.

But Flacco also played a horrible game and that should be taken into account for the loss. It wasn't just on the refs.

He's catching some heat right now, but is it just me thinking when watching him that he will be a force for years to come especially since it's within our division?

For some reason Flacco makes me nervous.

There's something about his poise and demeanor, added with talent, that makes me think he will have above average success in this league.

Hopefully I'm wrong.

I know what you mean, but at the same time, he seems like such a doofus.

Flacco is accurate; he has a strong arm; he can make all the throws; he's poised, calm, and collected. His talent enables him to torch a defense, and we've seen him do that, That part scares me. But, even with all his talent though, he seems to me to be missing something. First of all, he looks like he's a few french fries short of a happy meal, if you know what I mean. Secondly, he seems to be lacking a little in the leadership catagory. He's like a saltine cracker - kind of bland. No personality. I'm looking for more fire from a leader to inspire his teamates. Maybe not like Philip Rivers or anything, but just a little something.

I have yet to see him rise up in a big game, come through in the clutch and bring a team back in the 4th. (He may have done it, but not that I can remember) Sure he can go off against the Chiefs circa 2009 or the Browns, but when he plays a great defense, his flaws really show.

I'm with you on a talent level, because he has tons. But talent isn't everything, especially at quarterback. There have been plenty of extremely talented quarterbacks who couldn't pull it together - Ryan Leaf anybody?. And vise-versa, there have been plenty of less talented quarterbacks have some success due to their intangibles - Doug Flutie anybody?.

With that said, the jury is still out on Flacco. He's in his third year, and he's took his team (or did his team take him?) to the playoffs in his first two seasons. He did this with very little talent at WR. I have to give him his props for that, but he still has to take that step to the next level. Mostly, in my opinion, he must improve from a leadership standpoint to become one of the great ones.

So Finnegan gets fined $5000 for starting a fight. Harbaugh gets fined $15,000 for touching an official? Bullshit
