02:39 AM ET 11.30 | We hear of it all the time, from players quitting on the season to guys just straight up calling their coaches out. Usually it happens to bad teams during an awful year, but it almost happened to a team that is in line to get the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs. Harbaugh said that an impromptu open mic therapy session only bonded his team even more, and by letting his players know they shouldn't be afraid to constructively speak their minds, the Ravens are now a better football team because of it. It's worth noting that since the almost-mutiny in October, the Ravens haven't lost a game -- even one they should have last week --- and are now 9-2 and geared up for another serious run at a Super Bowl title.

It should also be noted that since that open mike meeting the ravens have played exactly 1 quality team and they got their **** handed to them...........badly.Jeezus, the barely beat the Steelers who just aren't that good this year and had Byron Leftwich starting at QB. ravens are going to be 1 and done in the playoffs.

You seem jealous of the Ravens success.

Correction, it appears that the Houston game (thrashing) was what prompted the meeting. since then they have had quite the cream puff schedule. They have a couple of tough games coming up so look for more losses.

Do you know anything about football?

How big is an NFL locker room? Seems kind of hard to lose, especially for someone who's been there for years.

Would it shock you if I pulled for your Steelers tomorrow?

It's a rather pitifully transparent strategic ploy on your part

I know lots about football and I know a fluffy schedule when I see one.BTW, my favorite team has been on quite a roll for about 11 or 12 years now and the Raisins suck.

HAHAHAHAHA hey that's good Rex!!! Yeah a Pats fan would for sure be an expert on fluffy schedules!!!! Wasn't one of the Ravens "fluffy" wins over your Patrinuts?

Damn, that's harsh.

C'mon Rex we is big boys. You need the Ravens to lose 2 games for the Pats to have any chance at getting a bye in the first round
