Harbaugh 'disturbed' by Patriots and Broncos

By loading up on talent, the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are making it clear that they want a ring this year.

By loading up on talent, the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are making it clear that they want a ring this year. Many consider that the Patriots and Broncos have 'won' free agency at this point by signing wide receivers, cornerbacks and adding other explosive players like DeMarcus Ware to the lineup.

At the NFL owners meetings, Harbaugh had this to say about his AFC rivals:

I was disappointed with the moves that the Broncos and Patriots made in the offseason. What more can I say? I thought they did a great job and that disturbed me.

Don't fear though, the Ravens aren't giving up anytime soon. After retaining their own players in Eugene Monroe, Dennis Pitta and Daryl Smith; the Ravens went out and added veteran wide receiver Steve Smith. After only 2 weeks into the free agent signing period, the Ravens have made their own splashes in order to stay competitive.

We’ll find out. The proof is in the pudding, but obviously they’ve added some pieces. I think both of those teams do a great job. They make great decisions, they’ve very particular with who they add and they add the player they need in the spot they need. It seems they draft that way as well. You’ve got to applaud what they’ve done. But we’ll play games in the fall and see how it plays out.

As always, the NFL is a game of "every given Sunday" where any team can win regardless of who the media has crowned as "paper champions". Luckily for the Ravens, they don't face either team during the regular season and as we know all too well, the playoffs are a completely different game.

Expect the Ravens to continue looking for value in free agency instead of making larger splashes because 2 championships in 12 years says a lot about that motto.
