Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh aren’t exactly swapping Christmas cards with one another. Their mutual professional hatred for one another, heck, it’s probably personal, goes back to their days as head coaches of USC and Stanford. Who can forget this memorable scene at the end of a Cardinal win in 2009?

The two have continued their frosty relationship since then, and the latest has come from Carroll in wake of Harbaugh’s comments about the officiating in last week's game between their teams. Carroll wanted to remind Harbaugh of his comments about the Giants offensive coordinator, Kevin Gilbride. Gilbride had made a passing remark about the play of Justin Smith. This infuriated Harbaugh, as he felt the Giants OC was trying to influence the officiating. However, Harbaugh seemed to be doing the same in regards to the Seahawks defensive backs.

“Wasn’t it just a couple weeks ago when they were talking about not doing things like that?” Carroll told Brock & Salk on ESPN 710 in Seattle. “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.”

Get him, Pete! I am interested in seeing what kind of response Harbaugh has once the San Fran media relays this to him. Harbaugh struggles to keep his emotions in check, and will most likely throw a jab back at him. It will probably have to do with how he owns Carroll.

With that all said, Pete did address the criticism head-on.

“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.”

“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.”

Mr Harbaugh, your turn.

  • Oh, irony of ironies....Carrol was all excited about the GB game that he stole.....bad refs and all...but now he's all butt hurt when things arent going his wa...what an immature lil'tool!
  • LOL!!! I'm sorry...but you must have a problem with reading comprehension. The whiner is Harbaugh...Carroll is stating a fact...that Harbaugh has nothing to whine about...but yet seems to be doing so...every week about who ever his opponent is. Giants one week, Seahawks the next.
  • Maybe you don't understand the meaning of the word irony . It is Harbaugh who is doing the whining .
  • sorry...way
  • Pete Carrol is a cheater who ran away from USC before he got caught, and Jim Harbaugh is a loser from scUM; so why is anyone suprised that they're fighting like the little baby losers they are?
  • Whinny Puss! You didn't seem to mind when you stold the game from the Packers. You are a jerk, always have been and always will be.
  • LOL!!! Harbaugh is the whiner...you too seem to have a problem with reading comprehension.

    And the game wasn't stolen from the Packers. But losers will always whine...just like you are now. The booth reviewed the call...the officials in the booth (who were NOT replacement officials but administrative NFL officials)..said the ball was that of the Seahawks. Want some cheese to go with that whine?
  • bottom line. jim H is an as-hole.
  • Isn't he though? Can't wait to see who or what he is complaining about after their next game. First the Giants...now the Seahawks...what a crybaby!
  • He was the same as a player. Not much has changed.
  • Hahaha did you read the article at all? Pete Carrol didnt complain about the refs once, he actually said they did a good job. Jim Harbaugh complained about the refs...
  • Harbaugh is a whiney little thing isn't he? So...what will he be whining about next Monday after his game this cming Sunday? Only time will tell. Fundgepacker coach needs to grow up!
  • Carroll is a POS. He will ruin the Seahags, just like he ruined USC.
  • We're so sorry Uncle Harbaugh, that the refs didn't slant the game far enough in your favor. Maybe they weren't intimidated by your ever present scowl, so you may need to spend some more time in front of the mirror perfecting that aspect of your game. You won it, so I don't see why you are whining. Probably because it was a close game, yes Uncle Pete is gaining on ya. It could be ugly when he does catch you. I like the rivalry, and I think Uncle Harbaugh and Uncle Pete like it as well.



  • Harbaugh is a perfect fit for a team of jerkoffs and fans that are pathetic and violent. Hawks have had no problems with fighting until a team full of thuggish lil twits like the 49ers comes along. They are no better than their fans that are stabbing, cutting, and killing people. Seems that that city is full of maggots that are either acting like d*cks, or theyre sucking them...lol Harbaugh impresses me as someone who does both.
  • hey, don't be bad mouthin UofM! harbaugh's a huge dick and pete cheated his a$$ off at the NCAA level. so who realy cares about either one of em!? second thought, if they break out the fisticuffs, i'd still root for pete to whoop his lil whiny a$$!! i hate the fact that harbaugh's winning with a team that singletary put together!! he gets NO CREDIT from me!
  • In fairness to the Seahawks, Pete Carroll has been a total jerk for a long time. Harbaugh's great Stanford teams humiliated Carroll, as "Pete" is only cordial when things are going his way. Harbaugh is only "one way", so you know what you're getting...as opposed to Mr. Phony Pete (a perfect USC fit, actually). I'm not a Niners or Hawks loyalist, but know that San Francisco will have the last laugh before Carroll's promises run thin and he has to leave Seattle while Harbaugh will have his choice of teams if desired.
  • Jim Harbaugh is so lonely. He is a rich and whiny man at present. He wants a man who can give him real love. He just uploaded his hot photos on Richwhinydating.c om. It’s the largest and best club for seeking nonstop complaining CEOs, pro athletes, doctors, lawyers, investors, entrepreneurs, beauty kings, fitness models, and Hollywood celebrities. Please Check it out! He's serious.
