Ravens' owner: Intense, casual

Steve Bisciotti knows the pulse of the Baltimore Ravens, but allows his coach and general manager to do their jobs.

It seems Bisciotti treats ownership of the Ravens as a sidelight to a casual lifestyle. That could not be further from the truth.

"He's a very strong guy. He's a very smart man," Harbaugh said. "He's involved in really almost everything we do. He's the guy that establishes the vision for the organization, and I think Steve deserves a lot of credit. He's not a guy that wants the limelight, he's not a guy that wants to be out front banging his chest. He's a humble man, just a great role model for all of us."

Newsome was with Bisciotti from the beginning. The two have forged a relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

"He is a very humble person. He's not afraid to challenge the issues but he's a very good listener," Newsome said. "I tell you what, he has some unbelievable insight when you have a chance to sit and talk with him. I've had a chance to watch him grow.

"I talked to a lot of the other GMs in our business, and they always say that Steve had it done the right way. He was able to come in to be a minority owner, to learn and watch and then become an owner. Some of these other guys aren't having the opportunity so therefore they make a lot of mistakes. I don't know if there is a more humble, honest, sometimes fiery, guy then Steve Bisciotti. He enjoys it, but he also believes one thing -- that he hires people to do their job. Let them do their job."
