After last Thursday’s win over the Seahawks, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh made it clear that he was unhappy with how his receivers were being covered.  He felt like the Seattle cornerbacks were getting away with holding.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll called Harbaugh out on Brock & Salk on ESPN 710 (via ProFootballTalk.com) because he told Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride that he was crazy to think that Justin Smith holds opposing offensive lineman.
“Wasn’t it just a couple weeks ago when they were talking about not doing things like that?” Carroll said. “The Giants, Kevin Gilbride, or something like that?  You know, I thought there was something about that, you know?  Where we don’t go out and express our concerns and all.”
Carroll believes his guys play well.  He mentioned that calls won’t always go your way.
“I think this was a very normal game for us in terms of how we played, and I’m surprised he felt like the receivers were so overwhelmed,” Carroll said.  “I thought our guys did a good job.  There’s always gonna be some calls that you can look at.  But our guys played good, solid, hard football.  And, you know, Vernon Davis didn’t get the ball and their receivers didn’t do much, Randy [Moss] got one.  I’m sure there’s a little frustration on their part.”
Carroll doesn’t believe that anything needs to be reviewed.
“If the officials look at it, they won’t have anything to even look at,” Carroll said.  “And I don’t think they even need to.  It’s a regular game.  Our penalties have really been going in the right direction, if you look at it. . . .  I don’t a guy should be able to speak out and go ahead and cause an investigation.  It’s too easy.  I don’t think it’s gonna happen.”
Carroll brings up a good point, sounds like a bit of a double standard.
The problem with the 49ers’ receivers is that Michael Crabtree is average, Vernon Davis was locked down and Randy Moss is washed up.
