"I see a guy that believes in what he believes, and he's a guy that's willing to fight those battles early on. You have to," said Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who didn't know Kelly but has spent some time with him this week. "You can't back up from what you believe in as a new coach in this league. He has a nice record in college coming in here, obviously, but now he has done well two years in the pros, so he has backed it up. But he has not flinched one bit from what he thinks is right and proper, and he sticks to it, and that's what you have to do."
