Steve Bisciotti's Text To John Harbaugh

Posted Jan 14, 2013

Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti send John Harbaugh an encouraging text during Saturday's game.


Minutes after the Ravens’ thrilling comeback over the Denver Broncos Saturday, CBS cameras showed Head Coach John Harbaugh speaking to his team in the locker room.

Harbaugh pulled out his cell phone and read a text that he received from Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti, who was unable to attend the game because of the flu.

 “I’ve never texted you during a game,” Harbaugh read, quoting the text. “We are down 35-28. And I think it’s the best game I’ve ever seen us in the playoffs since 2000. Win or lose I am so proud of the team and proud of you.”

Of course, the Ravens went on to tie the game on a miraculous 70-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Jacoby Jones, then won it in overtime on a 47-yard field goal by Justin Tucker.

In many ways, the game was a microcosm of the Ravens’ season. They battled back from deficits and adversity and were still able to pull off an improbable upset to return to the AFC championship for the third time in Harbaugh’s tenure.

During his press conference Monday, Harbaugh shared the story behind the text message. He explained that Ravens Director of Security Darren Sanders told him to read the text after coming off the field. Once Harbaugh read it, he wanted to share it with the team. 

“That was just something I thought the team needed to hear,” Harbaugh said. “[Bisciotti] is a great leader. The players love him. They love when he’s around. He’s an inspiration to all of our guys, to me, to this organization, he sets the tone here. It’s a great organization because of his vision.

“The guys needed to hear that at that moment, and I tell you, I think they appreciated it.”
