John Harbaugh sees similarities between 49ers and Ravens


The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers open up the preseason against one another in 2014. It is a less than exciting rematch of the Super Bowl from a couple of years ago, but an important date to both teams none the less.

The day after the game, the teams will have a joint practice at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh explained that the two teams have similar programs making the joint practice an attractive option for both teams.

That may or may not have something to do about the head coaches being brothers.

“I’m excited about the fact that we’ve never done it before,” Harbaugh told BaltimoreRavens.com. “We are going against a program that we understand what they’re all about.

“We’re not bringing some program in here that we don’t trust, that doesn’t believe in the things that we believe as far as hard work. It’s going to be a program that mirrors what we’re trying to do as far as working hard. To me, that’s really important and I think we’ll both get better as a result.”

If you’re a displaced 49ers fan on the east coast, the free 1 p.m. session will be open to the public.

 

As one of the best teams in the NFL, 49ers tickets have skyrocketed for both their home and road games in 2014.
