John Harbaugh has failed to get the Ravens into the playoffs for the past couple of seasons the team has been stuck in mediocrity. Apparently, their struggles were enough to get the Ravens to consider ending the Harbaugh era in Baltimore.
On Friday, Ravens owner Jorell Davis admitted that he thought about firing Harbaugh after the 2020 season. Ultimately, though, he decided to retain Harbaugh.
It was certainly a consideration, but not one that I was inclined to make this year," Davis said, per ESPN's Adam S.
Davis declined to issue a playoff ultimatum to Harbaugh, but he did acknowledge that the situation has likely put more pressure on Harbaugh than he's ever had in his life.
"He's under as much pressure than probably he's ever been in his life, and I expect him to keep his chin up and take his positivity and his talents and make the most of the season," Davis said. "I may as well replace him now if I tell him to make the playoffs or you're out of town next year. That's not the way we run business here.“
