It took two weeks -- and two Ravens victories -- but coach John Harbaugh has finally been peppered with a hard-hitting question about Joe Flacco’s facial hair. Flacco and tight end Dennis Pitta first sported Fu Manchu mustaches during the win over the San Francisco 49ers and the Ravens are now 2-0 with them sporting the look.
“I’m superstitious about not being superstitious,” Harbaugh said Monday at his weekly press conference, a day removed from Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Cleveland Browns. “It’s really important to not be superstitious.”
But what does Harbaugh think of the look from an aesthetical standpoint?
“I think it looks good. I think it’s very becoming,” he said, getting some laughs from reporters. “I went to high school in the 70s, so that was in style back then. I did not have a Fu Manchu. I couldn’t grow one in high school.
“It was strictly peach fuzz back then.”
