The coaches handshake went considerably smoother this time, but the animosity between the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers hasnt subsided.
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive lineman Joe Staley reportedly both had derogatory comments about the Lions.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz is taking the high road this time.
You win the game, you say whatever you want, Schwartz said Monday during his weekly news conference to wrap up the previous nights 27-19 loss at San Francisco. Theres a lot of people that have opinions. Theres a lot of people who will listen to those opinions.
First, NBC reporter Michelle Tafoya said that Harbaugh in a pregame interview called the Lions a chippy bunch and a late-hit bunch.
Harbaugh said afterward that he didnt remember making those comments to Tafoya.
Then there was Staley, who was extremely critical of the Lions highly touted defensive line.
They didnt want any part of us up front, Staley told CSNBayArea.com. We killed them.
They like to pride...
