Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh doesn’t want to hear any criticism from Vic Fangio.
The Broncos head coach tore into Harbaugh after the Ravens chose to get 100 rushing yards this past Sunday at the end of the game instead of taking a knee. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“I thought we were on good terms. We had a nice chat before the game. Known each other for a long time, but I promise you I’m not going to give that insult one second of thought. What’s meaningful to us might not be meaningful to them. Their concerns are definitely not our concerns,” Harbaugh explained when talking about Fangio’s comments.

This was the best way for Harbaugh to respond, and there’s no way anyone could debate otherwise. The Ravens earned the win, they got the ball back at the end of the game and chose to keep their streak of 100-yard rushing games alive.
You know how you shut the Ravens up and stop them from doing such a thing? Win the damn football game. It’s that simple.
Something tells me Vic Fangio was hoping other #NFL teams would call him asking how they managed to hold the Ravens below 100 yards rushing.

For Fangio to come at Harbaugh after the fact and talk about player safety is a very weak look. In the NFL, you control your own fate.
The only people to blame for Baltimore doing what they wanted down the stretch are the guys in Denver’s locker room. It’s on them for not getting the job done.

You can’t blame Harbaugh and his players for keeping the streak alive. Blame Denver’s defense for not stopping them.
