Ravens' coach John Harbaugh blasts Cowboys

New, comments

John Harbaugh is currently the coach of the Ravens, but spent nearly a decade in Philadelphia as the Eagles special teams coordinator. So clearly he has no love lost for the Cowboys. In a new book written by some local Philly sportswriters, ESPN NFC East blogger Matt Mosley found a very interesting quote from Harbaugh...

Asked why the Eagles have had so much success from 1999-2008 and the Cowboys haven't won a playoff game during that period, Harbaugh had this to say:

"Why is that? Because what Andy Reid and his program stand for if the opposite of what the Cowboys stand for. The Cowboys are a star system. It's all about building around individuals first and collecting talent, collecting great players. Andy has always been about building a team. And over the long haul, it's a team sport, and one of the greatest examples of that is what's happened with the Eagles and the Cowboys over the last 10 years. The Cowboys stand for everything that's wrong with the NFL."

That should help fan the flames of not only the Eagles/Cowboys rivalry, but might spark something between Dallas and Baltimore as well.
