Which I think most Raven fans will say is ridiculous, me included. But as Lamar Jackson sits at 2-0 as a starter, you have to think that Harbaugh will roll with the hot hand and hope to continue the momentum in the last stretch of the season. But on the other hand, most of us can see Harbaugh being too stubborn for his own good and staying loyal to his veteran quarterback that he’s had since coming to Baltimore. The coaching staff may look at it from a standpoint where they think they owe Joe one more chance in what could be his final year in the city of Baltimore. Its one of those things where you can see it going either way like a 50/50-coin flip.
