Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh voiced his frustrations Thursday over the standards sent to the 32 NFL teams detailing treatments for the full resuming of their practice facilities, which were closed due to the fact that of the coronavirus pandemic

” I’ve seen all the memos on that, and to be quite sincere with you, it’s difficult what they’re asking us to do. Humanly difficult,” Harbaugh said in an interview with 1057 The Fan “So, we’re going to do whatever we can do. We’re going to space, we’re going to have masks. You understand, it’s a communication sport. We need to have the ability to communicate with each other face to face. We need to practice.”

The protocol needs physical distancing in the locker, conference and weight rooms as well as snack bars. Harbaugh said he is not sure how those requirements can be reasonably applied everywhere.

” I’m quite sure the huddle is not going to be 6-feet spaced,” Harbaugh stated. “Are people going to shower one at a time all day? Are guys going to lift weights one at a time throughout the day? These are things the league and the [players’ association] requires to get a deal with on and needs to get agreed with some good sense so we can operate in a 13- hour day in training school that they’re providing us and get our work done. That’s the something, you can tell by my voice, I’m a little annoyed with what I’m hearing there. And I think they require to get that pinned down a little much better.”

Training camps are set up to begin in late July, with the first preseason game, Cowboys versus Steelers in the Hall of Popularity Video Game, on Aug. 6.

Harbaugh anticipates the sides to accept standards that are “more reasonable and useful” by that point.

” I think excellent individuals, smart people are associated with this,” Harbaugh stated. “But the way I read these memos today, you toss your hands up and you go, ‘What the heck? There’s no chance this can be right.'”

Harbaugh guaranteed the Ravens will do as great a task as or much better than any other team in adhering to the NFL’s guidelines. He simply hopes everybody else complies as well.

” As a coach, you don’t want to hear that you’re restricting your operations as far as preparing your group and then you hear 10 other groups aren’t focusing on the guidelines and after that there’s no consequence for that,” he stated. “Then they have an advantage on you. That’s what I don’t want to see. I simply think it needs to be reasonable and it needs to be sensible, and I believe they’ll find a way to do that.”
