Too soon?

Some of you can say this article is too early but it’s going to come up eventually. Did we witness the final game of John Harbaugh’s career as the Ravens head coach? Was this Joe Flacco’s final game for Charm City?

Less than a week ago, rumors swirled of John Harbaugh being on John Elway’s radar for the vacant Denver Broncos position. SB Nation’s Mile High Report covered a great deal of claims from Mike Florio announcing the interest to Ian Rapoport denying the claims with Mike Klis of 9News corroborating Rapoport’s denial.

The Broncos aren’t the only team with interest in the Ravens head coach either, as the Miami Dolphins are reportedly interested.

Per a league source, it’s believed that the Dolphins will formally make the call to the Ravens regarding that question, if the Dolphins know in advance that the Ravens won’t ask for too much. — Mike Florio

While all of this is being debated on the legitimacy of the claims, John Harbaugh answered the question at the post-game presser.

It may come down to Eric DeCosta and Steve Bisciotti, rather than Harbaugh. Does new management want new coaching in the mix or do they have confidence in Harbaugh to keep building in this new era?

As for Joe Flacco, many are confident he’s moving on. If the coaching staff doesn’t make the switch to Flacco in the Wild Card game when nearly everyone in the stadium is calling for him, I don’t expect the coaching staff to switch up in 2019. More importantly, it’s hard to envision a backup quarterback on the roster with a cap hit of $26.5 million, especially with C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs, John Brown and Za’Darius Smith as pending free agents.
