At the time it was a risky choice, but in hindsight it was the perfect call. Jim Harbaugh knew anything less of a Super Bowl would bring heavy criticism, but great coaches make brave decisions, and live to tell about it. As the 49ers head to New Orleans to face his brother’s Baltimore Ravens, a conversation with the owner Jed York at the mid-season point set the tone for change. “After the Bears game, Jim and I sat down in his office and I asked him, ‘What’s your gut?‘” owner Jed York told Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports. “He said, ‘Kaep. You OK with that?’  I said, ‘It’s your team.  You’ve got to go after it.  Whatever you think works.  I can defend either decision, and I understand either decision.’ “I trust Jim.  You either trust your coach or you don’t.  Obviously time will tell.  I think it proved to be a good move.  You see the evidence.  He’s playing well.  Jim made a gutsy, gutsy call.  And I don’t know that there’s any other coach in the league that would have made that call.”   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
