Now that's some gibberish we can all get behind.
You think he comes by it naturally?
100% of Colts fans would rather have Harbaugh going crazy on the sideline than what they had last year with Jim Caldwell.
Caldwell is a great guy and a good offensive coach, as he showed last night calling the plays, but fans don't like seeing a coach just stand on the sideline doing nothing to help his players.
At least Jim Harbaugh shows that he supports his players, and tries to get as many calls going his team's way as he can.
As the wheels were falling off and the Colts were hitting rock bottom, Jim stood there and stared off at god knows what with no emotion. He made Ty look like an emotional roller coaster.
We could call him a purple faced shanty mick.
the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
But kept asking last night if, "That guy always acts like this?"
I didn't lead her into any perception, yet, by the end of the game last night she was laughing every time the camera showed him on the sidelines and asking pointed questions about who exactly poured the sand in his vagina.
If you want to call him a sore loser, that's fine. If you want to say that he looks like an ass on the sidelines during the game, that's fine as well. But the article makes it sound like he took the podium and immediately started complaining. I watched the presser and I disagree with that assessment--he was asked about the calls and he answered and he admitted that he had bias. He wasn't stomping his feet and he did give Baltimore credit for the strategy of holding the Niners on the punt where they ran out of the end zone.
He basically said that the refs did a bad job. Guess what? The refs did a bad job. That's life. What do you want him to say?
I didn't have a problem with his press conference, but the man is a buffoon.
if that was ND getting screwed like that, Id want my coach stomping and ranting too..I haven't heard one analyst today say that wasn't a penalty..He just answered a question and answered it honestly rather than go the "turn the other cheek " route..He answered the question honestly, that his honest answer..Good for him
How's that for a novel concept? Instead of coming off as the giant asshole you already are, how about just move the question along?
And let's not act like this is the first time he's ever done this. He cried like a fucking baby after the Giants bumped them last year.
It's a shame that such a good coach is wrapped up in a giant fucking douchebag costume. He should have Summer's Eve imprinted on his forehead.
In a sport filled with coaches mumbling tired cliches, you'd prefer more of them?
I think Jim Harbaugh knows he had the better team and his team choked. He's bitter about it because he's brash and arrogant, but those seemingly negative qualities haven't prevented him from becoming arguably the best coach in the NFL after two seasons; maybe there's more to the guy than his sideline antics, or his disregard for pussbag decorum after a tough loss.
you'd be complaining a lot more than Harbaugh.
Edit: to your team (can't remember if it's philly) in any championship game.
By our nature we complain about a lot of shit. We complain about the refs, our coaches, whatever. And guess what? That probably makes us whiners.
will jump on his case for being "short" with the media.
It's a no win. I would prefer that he answers the questions that are asked.
than a postgame interview with players or coaches. So I wouldn't care if he just moved the question along.
And you can move the question along without coming off as an asshole as well.
He's a giant douchewad and last night did nothing but solidify that perception.
I suppose that those technically aren't "sports."
Yeah, you "wouldn't care." That's why you post the article back here.
I only posted the article because Harbaugh's whining, which is legendary, was on full display last night, again.
But I get it. You're a big 49ers fan so you have to defend him, even though deep down you know he's a big fucking asshole. He's just your asshole.
His last chance to win the Super Bowl and a blatant hold wasn't called.
I will respect your opinion.
If you haven't (and I doubt you have) I will continue to view you as a dim witted moron.
As I said in the initial post, there are a lot of things you can say about Harbaugh and his antics; I do not feel (having watched the press conference) that his answers last night are one of those reasons. I think it is an example of a reporter who knows the story he wants to write simply taking things out of context and writing that story. That shit happens all of the time.
And it only slightly changes my opinion. He certainly wasn't ranting and raving, which he normally does, in that press conference. But he made sure to point out that he thought there was another pass interference earlier. And then he went back in the middle of the press conference in answering a totally unrelated question, he counters back to reiterate that he thought the refs didn't do their job.
He comes off as a whiney baby, just not his typical obnoxious whiney baby self.
there was another pass interference earlier.
I don't recall him saying "the refs didn't do their job." Can you point to where that was in the press conference?
You're pulling things out of left field that aren't there, which isn't a surprise. Perhaps he should have challenged the reporter to a fight? Would that have made it all right with you?
Right from the Mercury News:
Later, Harbaugh stopped in the middle of a question about something else to reiterate: "I realize I'm on the side of the 49ers. I'm the coach of the 49ers. There is some bias there, but I wouldn't be bringing it up unless it was obvious. But that's not the way they saw it. That's the only reason I bring it up."
He didn't need to go back and re-iterate the fact that he didn't agree with their calls right in the middle of another question. But it's in his nature. He complains all the time - either on the sideline, in press conferences, wherever.
should be talked about.
Alright, that one might have been over the line.
I live in Northern CA, and they are my "home team" in the NFL. But, I can't stand Jim H. I was disappointed, but only slightly. He is a total turkey. His brother is much more normal.
prefer the stoicism of Tyrone unWillingham on the sidelines.
I don't much care for the guy either but he did get your team to the Super Bowl. And the non interference/holding call was huge. What a joke.
I am sure you preferred the Erickson, Nolan, and Singletary years.
