After defeating his brother during Super Bowl XLVII, John Harbaugh has yet to speak to his brother Jim (Credit: AP Photo) Following Super Bowl XLVII, Jim Nance interviewed the winning coach, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. As most know, John’s brother Jim was on the other side of the field coaching the 49ers on that night. John Harbaugh told Nance that the end of the game was the hardest thing he had ever experienced. In fact, even I thought the exchange was a little awkward. Nance asked John what he said to Jim during their end of the game handshake. John told Nance he said “I love you” to his brother Jim and Jim responded with “congratulations, I’m proud of you”. As someone who has a brother, I certainly know if we faced each other in the Super Bowl and he told me he loved me following the game, I would answer with something other than congratulations. Apparently, Jim is still upset he lost the game to brother John, as the pair has not spoken since the game. While appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday, John talked about the post-game conversation he had with Jim. “I told him I loved him, good game, and he said, ‘Congratulations, I’m proud of you,’” John Harbaugh said. “Have you spoken to him since?” Letterman asked. “I have not,” John Harbaugh said, to laughter from the studio audience.  “We will.  Soon.” John also spoke about some of the interactions he had with the referees during the power outage. Asked about video showing him berating a league official during the 34-minute power outage, John Harbaugh said, “There was a concern about restaurants after the game.  New Orlean’s got a lot of great restaurants, Dave.  We weren’t sure where to go.” John Harbaugh also joked that he was arguing that the game should have been called at that point, with Baltimore leading 28-6.  “It’s like baseball,” he said.  “You get your four-and-a-half innings in.  It’s done.” John went on to explain that any of the anger he appeared to show during the power outage was due to a concern that Jim and the 49ers would make a game out of it despite the 22 point deficit. “That was not surprising,” John Harbaugh said.  “The longer I stood over there, knowing Jim, knowing the kind of competitor he is.  The type of team they had, you could just feel like they were gonna make a comeback.  And you just knew it was gonna be tough.  That’s the way it was our whole life growing up.” The post John, Jim Harbaugh still haven’t spoken since Super Bowl appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.

  • No doubt they haven't spoken because of Jim not John. Jim is a fukking jackasss, he's proven it time and again. John on the other hand has always showed class and professionalism. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Ravens send Jim home the loser that he is.
