John Harbaugh Is Worthy of the Hall of Fame, With a Second Super Bowl Victory

If the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl with Lamar Jackson at quarterback, John Harbaugh is a lock for the Hall of Fame.

When John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens drafted Lamar Jackson, he said it would be a revolution to the quarterback position. He may be right. Lamar Jackson is not only a quarterback who runs with the football but can accurately deliver the football from the pocket consistently.

Harbaugh saw that while Jackson was at Louisville while the rest of the football world was suspect and thought he’d have to change positions. He also brought in Greg Roman and developed a system around Jackson to help him flourish.

Harbaugh is proving his coaching medal by doing that. He was able to win with a pure pocket passer and what is being dubbed the 2.0 quarterback.

Now, look at his all-time credentials. In the history of the NFL, only 16 coaches have won 100 regular-season games and two or more league (AFL, NFL, AAFC, and/or Super Bowl) championships. Among those coaches, 11 are in the Hall of Fame, and one of the five that aren’t is Bill Belichick.

If he wins a Super Bowl with Jackson as his quarterback, he will join another exclusive group. He would be the fifth head coach with at least one championship with two different starting quarterbacks.

The 100+ wins and multiple titles are enough to get in the Hall of Fame. However, when you factor in having different starting quarterbacks with different styles of play, he’s a lock.

Harbaugh was willing to adapt and evolve. This has led to the potential of a bust in Canton. A Super Bowl win should absolutely assure that.
