Even with the San Francisco 49ers losing the Super Bowl, 34-31, there is not a player or coach on that team that has any reason to hang their heads.The 49ers did something they have not done since the Steve Young years by making it all the way to the big game.The 49ers are one of those teams, that even though they have not been to the Super Bowl since the mid 1990s, they always had the cream of the crop talent, like quarterback Jeff Garcia, and receiver Terrell Owens.Even though they had all the skills to get to the playoffs it was going anywhere past that they struggled with.After the Garcia and Owens show left town, the 49ers had to deal with the antics of head coach Mike Singletary and a young Alex Smith running the show with zero stability and rotating play calling until head coach Jim Harbaugh showed up.It was when Harbaugh showed up that everything changed for the good for the 49ers.Harbaugh's record in San Francisco is 27-9-1 including a 3-2 playoff record.Not only has he...

Champagne for John Harbaugh, whine for Jim Harbaugh

NEW ORLEANS -- For the two weeks since their teams earned the right to play in Super Bowl XLVII, brothers Jim and John Harbaugh knew the bitter reality: Someone was leaving New Orleans a loser. While elder John and his Baltimore Ravens get to spend a night on Bourbon Street partying with Lombardi, Jim's 49ers swallow a painful loss, the first in San Francisco's six trips...

John Harbaugh made Ravens believers

John Harbaugh got the best of Jim Harbaugh in Super Bowl XLVII -- the first time two brothers faced off as opposing coaches in an American professional league championship game.

Jim Harbaugh’s Play Calling Lacked Creativity, Which Led to 49ers’ Late-Game Letdown

The 49ers were nearly flawless throughout the second half of Super Bowl XLVII. But when push came to shove down near the goal line with the game on the line, they just couldn’t convert.

Lights Out Ravens Win; Jim Harbaugh Sore in Loss

On Friday I stated the Ravens would win by 3 points in a close game. It sure didn’t start out that way, but it sure ended that way. It was a Super Bowl of firsts; a fake field goal, a 34 minute power outage in the 3rd quarter, and brother vs brother (John vs. Jim Harbaugh). The half time if anyone cared also saw the reunion of Destiny’s Child (Beyonce and her band mates Michelle...

John Harbaugh Says Brother Jim Harbaugh Is ‘Best Coach in NFL’

For the better part of a decade, Bill Belichick has been the consensus pick as the NFL’s best coach. But that title might be passing on, at least according to John Harbaugh. Harbaugh, who took home his first Super Bowl title with the Ravens’ 34-31 win over the 49ers on Sunday, isn’t putting himself on that pedestal, though. Instead, he’s talking up his younger brother, Jim...
