Found October 16, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride admitted that he was “shocked” by Jim Harbaugh’s comments last week.
“I have great respect for their front, and I have unbelievable respect for the guy (Smith), tremendous,” Gilbride told the New York Daily News. “But it (defensive holding) is something he does. He reaches out and grabs people. …
“I thought it was just in a litany of compliments. … all of a sudden, (Harbaugh) turned it into a negative thing. … It was great. All of a sudden, now everybody in the country saw it. It worked well.”
At the end of the day, Gilbride and the Giants offense got the last laugh as they put up 26 points against one of the NFL’s best defenses.

Tom Coughlin came into the week proclaiming that no one believed the Giants could beat the 49ers, not giving his team any chance of winning in San Francisco against the team many considered the best in the NFL.  Someone forgot to tell Coughlin, his staff and players because the Giants decimated the 49ers in their own house to the tune of a 26-3 whooping.  The Giants had not played...

49ers have much to prove against physical Seahawks

The 49ers are 4-2 and widely hailed as one of the best teams in the NFC. Outside the locker room, it might feel more like 2-4, particularly after the Giants blasted them 26-3 on Sunday in a rematch of the NFC Championship game.
