The Ravens are simply a franchise no one expects to see in last place. In their 20 seasons, this is the first time Baltimore is sitting at 1-4.
Still, Harbaugh refuses to show any signs of quitting.
"It doesn't wear me down," Harbaugh said, via the team's official site. "I don't get worn down. That will not happen."
In Baltimore, though, their struggles are not part of a regime change or mass exodus of talent. It is a product of old age and turnover that happens with all great franchises. On Sunday alone, Justin Forsett, Darren Waller, Lardarius Webb, Will Davis and Elvis Dumervil left the game with injury. Even 36-year-old Steve Smith, Sr. (back) couldn't chip in.
And maybe that is why Harbaugh won't get worn down. Every now and then a franchise hits a road bump like this and he's already got a Super Bowl under his belt. He knows it's only a matter of time before order is restored in the AFC North again.
