It's not every day that an NFL coach takes issue with the way an opposing player fights but that's what 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh did on Monday when the subject of Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews came up.
Matthews started a brawl in the second quarter on Sunday when he hit an obviously out of bounds Colin Kaepernick as Kaepernick was scrambling on a third-and-6 play from Green Bay's 10-yard line. Harbaugh called the hit a 'clothesline.' After the hit 49ers offensive lineman Joe Staley intervened to make sure his quarterback was alright.

Look, the entertainment value of this commercial might not be up there with the man’s quarterback’s Madden commercials, but there is something to be said about the fact that Jim Harbaugh is doing a commercial. The 49ers head coach is a bit of a hard ass, so it’s nice to see he has a softer, humorous side. Case in point, Jim Harbaugh is human.
Arguably the watershed moment of Sunday’s Packers-49ers game was the Superman-esque hit that Clay Matthews gave to Colin Kaepernick.
There’s no question that Matthews wasn’t just a tad late. The plane had already taxied onto the runway by the time he showed up at the gate. That’s how late he was.
Kaepernick’s entire body was past the white out-of-bounds line and still Matthews...
