John Harbaugh is not concerned with the views of unknown sources.

Earlier this week, The Athletic published tier quarterback rankings from a survey of 50 NFL coaches and officials.

An unnamed defensive coordinator called Lamar Jackson a "hit or miss" passerby

And that's not enough in the pocket to consider him a top-tier quarterback.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Harbaugh dismissed the anonymous quote.

"I don't know who this anonymous man is," said Harbaugh.

"I haven't met him yet. I don't even know why we report on him,

But it is what it is. It's just baloney. It's just nothing."

Fans applaud the Ravens' head coach for defending their quarterback and shutting down the faceless critic

There is virtually no chance that an NFL coach will associate his name with comments that are outraged.

"If he has to pass to win the game, they're not winning the game," said the defensive coordinator.

"He's very unique as an athlete and he's a really good football player,

But I don't care if he wins the league MVP 12 times, so I don't think he'll ever be 1 as a quarterback."

Jackson already has an MVP.

He posted a 98.1 career quarterback rating and led the Ravens to 37 wins in 49 regular season starts.

Hiding behind oblivion is easy to say strange things.
