We’ve concluded on this site that the no call on contact between Michael Crabtree and Jimmy Smith on the 49ers final offensive play in the Super Bowl was the right decision. Even Mike Pereira, one of the authoritative voices when it comes to officiating, concurred. We’re now four days removed from the game, but some people evidently can’t let things go. I’m talking about Jim Harbaugh. Here was Harbaugh in the immediate aftermath of the disputed play: Thanks, Jim. That was classic you. It was and is still hilarious. And here he was on Wednesday, speaking with 95.7 The Game, tackling the theory that no call happened because it was at the end of the game: “I would say it exactly like Bill Polian: A penalty is a penalty no matter when it occurs in a game. It could occur in the first play of the game. It could occur on the last play of the game, or any play in between. That’s the rules of football. You let ‘em play or let ‘em get away with something. Which would you rather have? Let’s p...

When on the MTRRadio.com Super Bowl Pregame show I heard radio personality James Flippin call the 49ers coach “An Insufferable Douche Bag”.  At the time I thought it was a little harsh but not having any skin in the Super Bowl, I let it go thinking he was just over overstating his dislike a bit?

John Harbaugh to David Letterman: I haven’t spoken to Jim since Super Bowl

If the Harbaugh brothers weren’t such fierce competitors, they would not have been coaching against one another last Sunday.

Jim Harbawawawa Still Crying

As a coach, I like Jim Harbaugh. He did a great job at Stanford and he's done a great job since being hired by the San Francisco 49ers. But let's face it...he's a cry baby.

On 4th and Goal, down by 5 points, San Francisco went for the win on a Colin Kaepernick attempted pass.
