James Harrison 'congratulates' Ravens on Super Bowl win

USA TODAY Sports

Steelers linebacker James Harrison offered a bit of a faux congratulations to the Ravens Monday.

Veteran Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison posted on his Facebook page Monday, congratulating the Baltimore Ravens for their 34-31 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. Harrison showed that just because Baltimore is one of Pittsburgh's biggest rivals, it doesn't mean he can't respect the Ravens.

Well, not exactly. Harrison's post was a bit tongue-in-cheek:

Congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens. Thanks for keep us(The Pittsburgh Steelers) as the only team with 6 rings. Y'all had to know is was another reason why I would say that! Lol

The Steelers picked up Super Bowl wins in 1974, '75, '78, '79, 2005 and '08, and no other NFL franchise has matched Pittsburgh in number of titles. Two teams, the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, have won five Super Bowls.

For the 49ers, Sunday's game was the first Super Bowl loss in franchise history. San Francisco previously won the NFL's ultimate game in 1981, '84, '88, '89 and '94. Entering Super Bowl XLVII, the Niners were the only NFL franchise to have played in at least two title games with a perfect record.

The Ravens' victory was their second Super Bowl win in two tries. Baltimore's first came in 2000.
