Ravens Take Workman-Like Attitude To Super Bowl Schedule

Posted Jan 21, 2013

John Harbaugh said players have until Wednesday to sort out issues, then get to work.

Head Coach John Harbaugh made it quite clear that the Ravens aren’t going to rest during the two weeks leading up to Super Bowl XLVII.

“You go to sleep at night, you sleep, you get up and you go to work. That’s what we’ll do,” Harbaugh said when asked if he would let the team recharge its batteries.

“We’ve got too much work to do. This is the biggest game of the year. This is the best two weeks of the NFL football season. It’s the weeks that you work for.”

It’s Harbaugh’s workman-like attitude that is dictating the Ravens’ Super Bowl schedule, which shouldn’t come as a surprise in Baltimore.

Ravens players will have until Wednesday to sort out the housekeeping duties regarding to the Super Bowl, such as tickets, flights, and hotels for family and friends. Then, Harbaugh said, they have to pass it onto their wives or significant others to handle.

The Ravens coaching staff won’t waste any time before they dig into preparing for the San Francisco 49ers over the next week-and-a-half.

“We will be preparing this week as if we are playing the game this week,” Harbaugh said.

“We’ll have to get as far down the road in our preparation this week as we possibly can, and we’ll try to take advantage of every minute we possibly can to get ready to play this team.”

The Super Bowl is a different kind of event than any other during an NFL season. And considering that the league is so routine-based, tweaking the schedule takes on added importance.

Harbaugh said he spent much of Monday trying to figure out all the logistics, which he said he hadn’t put much time into planning before the AFC championship. The team had to find a place to practice, set up offices for coaches, meetings rooms and more.

“That was streamlined today,” Harbaugh said. “We don’t want to have to deal with too many of those logistical things.”

Harbaugh has some familiarity with it, as he went to the Super Bowl in 2005 with the Philadelphia Eagles. They lost to the New England Patriots in that game, but Harbaugh gained an understanding of how it’s a different kind of game altogether.

“The length of the game is different – the pregame, halftime and all those things are different than a regular game,” Harbaugh said. “Just to try to prepare our guys for that.”
