After the Ravens' final practice before last Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, veteran guard Marshal Yanda stepped into the middle of the team's huddle. He had something that he wanted to say to his longtime head coach.
Speaking on behalf of his Ravens teammates, Yanda thanked John Harbaugh for giving the players the previous day off to celebrate Christmas. He expressed his appreciation for the unwavering belief and support Harbaugh has shown during this challenging season. Yanda then promised Harbaugh that the players would give their coach their very best against the heavily-favored Steelers.
"One of the most meaningful things I've ever, ever heard as a coach," Harbaugh said. "I'll cherish that."
Arguably the most disappointing season in franchise history ends Sunday with the Ravens (5-10) playing the AFC North champion Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. The past five months haven't been easy for anybody associated with the Ravens.
