San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh wasn’t happy with how physical the Seahawks’ cornerbacks were on Thursday night and he plans on talking to the NFL.
“I wouldn’t use the words, ‘locked up,’” Harbaugh said Friday, per CSNBayArea.com. “We’ll take that up with the officials (NFL office) and get their view of it.”
49ers quarterback Alex Smith agrees with his head coach.
“If this is a point of emphasis of no contact after 5 yards, no question,” Smith said.
“They’ve done it all year. When they played Green Bay, they were doing it to all those guys, (Greg) Jennings, all those guys. You turn on the Patriots (film) and same things,” Smith added. “That’s what they do. It’s who they are. They’re good at it. It’s what they play, big corners, physical guys. I don’t know how we didn’t get a call. It seems like it gets called once a game and then it doesn’t get called again.”
