San Francisco 49ers
Jim Harbaugh has never made it to the Super Bowl as a player or coach, though this Sunday marks his third conference championship game appearance and second in as many years. Eager to make good on his latest chance at championship glory, Harbs has been trying to fire up his players by posting pictures of them as high schoolers on their lockers.
Coach Jim Harbaugh had a laminated sheet made for each player during wild-card weekend, which the 49ers had off, then surprised the players with them when they reentered the locker room after a meeting.
So far, so good, I guess. But what is the takeaway from the tactic?
Harbaugh declined to elaborate on why he had the photos made, but team spokesman Bob Lange said the coach “wants the players to be able to interpret the reason for it in any way they want.”
“To see some of these guys in their early years, pretty bad-looking kids,” practice-squad safety Curtis Taylor said with a laugh. “I’m just being honest. I ain’t going to put nobody’s names out there to say who was ugly and who looked good. But if you just look around…”
Don’t have to do a lot of age regression work with Colin Kaepernick, who still looks like a really tall 14-year-old.
– Cardinals fullback Reagan Maui’a claims that Manti Te’o's dead girlfriend was real, so it’s clear we should stop with the “Te’o might be gay” conspiracy and get started on the “Samoans promoting lies” conspiracy.
– Jaguars get the Eagles’ sloppy seconds, hire Gus Bradley as head coach.
– A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, is going to be covering the Super Bowl for “Inside Edition”, which surprisingly still exists. Ines Sainz will have to arrive the Media Day in body paint and torches coming out of her nipples to steal attention from the old lecherous media drones.
– The Steelers say they are unlikely to use the franchise tag on Mike Wallace, so another team gets to fork over lots of money for fast running and drops.
– The next chapter of Dan Shanoff’s never-ending fantasy about Tim Tebow has the Runslinger going to Chicago, because a new coach totally wants to saddle himself with that monstrous distraction for marginal on-field benefit.
– Impressive Super Bowl display at a supermarket in California. From what I hear, the people who make these things get decent loot. Score one for another industry doing better than bloggers.
– Just a reminder that Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne and Jim Irsay are appearing on tonight’s episode of “Parks and Recreation”. Will one of them mistake Jerry for Peter King? MAYBE!

According to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh placed a laminated photo of each of his players from back in high school and what they were nationally ranked as football players.

The fact that John and Jim Harbaugh each have their teams in the conference championship for a second straight season is not a coincidence. The Harbaugh brothers are tremendous NFL coaches and masters of motivation, which is why we would never question any of Jim Harbaugh’s motivational tactics — no matter how strange they may seem.
According to the LA Times, Harbaugh had someone...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is all about using whatever tactics he can to motivate his players, so last weekend Harbaugh went old school on them according to the L.A. Times, and hung up their photo’s from when they were in high school, with their rankings above each locker to remind them of expectations and earlier aspirations.

O Brother, Where art thou?
The Harbaugh brothers, Jim and John, are each, for the second consecutive year, one step from the Super Bowl. That is pretty, pretty good. No?
It raises the question (though it does not beg it, because begging the question is a philosophical term that has nothing to do with raising a question): Are the Harbaugh brothers to NFL coaching what the Manning...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh told the media today that he wants wide receiver Randy Moss to come back next season.
Moss recorded 28 receptions for 434 yards and 3 touchdowns during the regular season.
I’m not sure why Harbaugh wants Moss back, there are better receivers in free agency then Moss right now.
Moss had no comment when asked about Harbaugh wanting him...
The first reason is head coach Jim Harbaugh. During his lengthy 14 year playing career, Jim Harbaugh commanded his teams to a combined record of 66-74, reflecting that he wasn’t the greatest of quarterbacks to step foot onto a field. However, he is 24-8 as a coach, reflecting that he was a great student and learned from some top notch coaches during his playing days. Prior...

When it comes to football, the NFL is the world’s most competitive stage. That competition is even stronger for the Harbaugh brothers, San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh and Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh. Both coaches have their teams in their...
Please stop whatever you’re doing and watch this. If you’ve already seen it, watch it eight more times. Watch it until it is your dreams.
Gotta say, the Super Bowl with the 49ers will be quite interesting with Jim Harbaugh’s incessant demands for cake and the revelation that Joe Staley set a guy on fire.

Jim Harbaugh has done pretty well for himself in the NFL, going 24-7-1 and making it to the NFC Championship Game in both of his years as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
But when it comes to comparing himself to older brother John Harbaugh, who is 54-26 with three AFC Championship Game visits over five years with the Ravens, Jim won’t concede that he’s in the same class...
SAN FRANCISCO -- For a team as storied as the San Francisco 49ers, it sure has been awhile since the last time they won a road playoff game. Jan. 8, 1989, to be exact. The 49ers traveled to Chicago, where they beat the Bears 28-3 at Solider Field as a pit stop on their way to the Super Bowl title in New Orleans. It wasn't until later that year when rookie running back LaMichael...
Bill Belichick has this nice habit. He coaches in Super Bowls.
John Harbaugh has established an impressive trend, too: winning playoff games.
When they face off Sunday for the second straight year in the AFC championship, Belichick's Patriots and Harbaugh's Ravens will offer further proof of the value of stability.
No coaching carousels in New England and Baltimore.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By JOSH DUBOW AP Sports Writer Mike Nolan's 3 1/2-year tenure as coach for the San Francisco 49ers offered few highlights on the field.
An 18-37 record before a mid-season firing in 2008. No playoff berths for a franchise used to winning championships. A parade of offensive coordinators unable to develop Alex Smith at quarterback.
