You cannot consume sports media this week without hearing about two brothers facing off for the first time ever in the Super Bowl. Many analysts want to make a big deal about how their relationship will affect the Harbaugh Bowl (HarBowl), but only Cosby Sweaters will literally make a story out of this. Our ‘analysis’ dives deep in to the rivalry between these two brothers going all the way back to a 15 month old vs. a 1 day old to determine which coach has the advantage in New Orleans. Using ‘evidence’ (made up stories) from their past, we will examine five aspects of coaching and determine which coach has the upper hand.
Head to Head- John
First let us examine the Harbaughs’ head-to-head record. John and Jim have already faced off once as head coaches of NFL teams. On Thanksgiving 2011, the Ravens and the 49ers played to a 16-6 Raven win in Baltimore. This gives John the advantage in the head to head win column, but how the game played out is even more telling. Five out of the si...

In advance of the much-hyped Harbowl (or “Super Browl”, if you will), Reddit brings us this absolute gem from the Harbaugh brothers’ childhood.
Check out young John and Jim decked out in their Baskin Robbins little league unis, with the elder John towering over the befuddled looking Jim:
And after some incredible interweb sleuthing, we uncovered a few more classic...
John and Jim Harbaugh have received plenty of attention as opposing head coaches in the Super Bowl.
At their joint news conference Friday, someone asked the brothers if they could work together if either should be forced out of their current post.
John Harbaugh, coach of the Baltimore Ravens, said, ''There's no question about it.'' He said the brothers discussed...
It was a nomadic existence considered almost normal when the world you grow up in and know includes a football coach. Save for the lucky ones that can last in one place for a while, most bounce from school to school to school or pro team to pro team, and the family is along for the often bumpy ride. Jack Harbaugh knew that. The father of Jim and John (and Joanie, who married...
It’s been reported that over $1 billion dollars is bet on the Super Bowl, including millions on simply prop bets.
They are very entertaining and can range from mildly ridiculous to very ridiculous. Here just a few of them, and, if I were a betting man, which way I would lean. (Odds courtesy of hogshaven.com.)
Will any player get a penalty for excessive celebration in the game...
There will be no Mannings, not at Super Bowl XLVII.
It’s brother vs. brother, certainly, a historic Super Bowl tale of opposing coaches. You could say it’s brotherly love, a moment when John Harbaugh, coach of the Baltimore Ravens, will stand across the field from Jim Harbaugh, coach of the San Francisco 49ers Sunday to fight for a possession of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, a 22...
John Harbaugh rolled the dice and it almost worked… Here we see Baltimore running a fake field goal up 14-3 in the second quarter of the Super Bowl. At the time it seemed like a gamble but Jacoby Jones just returned the opening kickoff in the second half essentially putting the game out of reach. [...]
Super Bowl XLVII is closing in and there’s plenty to talk about. John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens head coach and Jim Harbaugh, San Francisco head coach, are squaring off in the biggest sibling rivalry match in the NFL since the Manning brothers played each other during the 2010 regular season. John and Jim Harbaugh are barely [...]
The final game of the NFL season is upon us as the AFC Champion Baltimore Ravens prepare to take on the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 47. They meet up in New Orleans in a game that features many unique story lines.
From the Harbaughs facing off to Ray Lewis’s final game in the NFL, along with his reported use of banned substances, the game has many off-field angles...
John Harbaugh said at the Super Bowl on Thursday that he hopes folks find it in their hearts to vote Art Modell into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during Saturday mornings vote.
Dont expect many hearts in Cleveland to feel that way.
And if Modells name is announced Saturday night, dont expect many hearts to accept it with a shrug, or without angry protest.
Feelings in Cleveland...
