49ers HC Jim Harbaugh did not like what Giants OC Kevin Gilbride's comment's the other day talking about DE Justin Smith of the 49ers.
Kevin Gilbride said he likes to murder offensive players when is on the field and Jim Harbaugh was angry when he heard about that comment.
Jim Harbaugh said Gilbride's comment was outrageous when he was making a statement about his star defensive end Justin Smith.
Harbaugh's quote " Kevin Gilbride's outrageous, irrational statement regarding Justin Smith's play is, first, an absurd analogy. Second, it is an incendiary comment targeting one of the truly exemplary players in this league" end quote.
Both teams will face each other to the death tomorrow afternoon and this is the rematch of the 2011 NFC championship game when the Giants beat the 49ers 20-17 in overtime and from there, they went on to win the super bowl.
Expect a close game between both teams and I would be shocked if either teams blows each other away.
