Confirmed: Ravens Knew About Jerry Jones’ Scheduling Petition, Used It for Motivation

Filed under: Cowboys, Ravens, NFL Coaching, NFL Real Talk, NFL RumorsJerry Jones — if the rumors are true — made a serious karmic error by petitioning the NFL to schedule the Baltimore Ravens as the final opponent for the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium. Sure, at the time the Ravens had a rookie head coach and a rookie quarterback, were coming off a disappointing season, and looked totally ripe for the picking at the hands of the unstoppable Cowboy juggernaut.

Hindsight, of course, is 20/20. But, as it turns out, the Ravens get a whiff of what Jerry was up to, as Willis McGahee explained to me in an interview yesterday, and Jim Harbaugh used it for motivation.
Yeah our coach told us about … you know they find out about the schedules in January, and you know, they wanted to schedule us for the final game in Texas Stadium, and our coach gave us a speech right before our meeting was over on Friday night … and we knew it wasn’t going to be no easy walk through for us or for them either.
So, yeah. That’s pretty freaking awkward. And it goes to show just how lacking in humility and tact the Cowboys’ owner can be at times — he literally told the NFL, “I want to whip these guys silly as the last big fireworks show in Texas Stadium” (presumably because they were the only team to never play there?)

Obviously it’s was an action that backfired heavily on him, but then again, most bulletin board material ends up that way.
