O Brother, Where art thou?
The Harbaugh brothers, Jim and John, are each, for the second consecutive year, one step from the Super Bowl. That is pretty, pretty good. No?
It raises the question (though it does not beg it, because begging the question is a philosophical term that has nothing to do with raising a question): Are the Harbaugh brothers to NFL coaching what the Manning brothers are to NFL quarterbacking?
The answer is no. Not yet, anyway. The reason is that the Mannings each have Super Bowl rings. Peyton has one and Eli has two rings.
The second question is this: If both brothers make it past the coming weekend, can we name Super Bowl XLVII the Har-Har Bowl? I know.
It sounds laughable, but these boys are no joke.

It must be a gift and a curse to have a brother in the same profession, when both of you are really good at what you do and people around you expect you to fight for supremacy.
The Harbaugh brothers like any siblings are competitive with each other to a point, but do their best to avoid it turning into a rivalry.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is all about using whatever tactics he can to motivate his players, so last weekend Harbaugh went old school on them according to the L.A. Times, and hung up their photo’s from when they were in high school, with their rankings above each locker to remind them of expectations and earlier aspirations.
Each player got a laminated sheet...
For the Harbaugh family, Saturday will be a day that gets remembered for a long, long time. Not just because the NFL teams John and Jim coach won divisional round playoff games, either. Their brother-in-law, Indiana men's basketball coach, Tom Crean, won his game earlier in the morning too. The big winners, Jack and Jackie Harbaugh, watched all three from their basement in...
The first reason is head coach Jim Harbaugh. During his lengthy 14 year playing career, Jim Harbaugh commanded his teams to a combined record of 66-74, reflecting that he wasn’t the greatest of quarterbacks to step foot onto a field. However, he is 24-8 as a coach, reflecting that he was a great student and learned from some top notch coaches during his playing days. Prior...
With the Ravens trailing by a touchdown late in the fourth quarter in Denver, majority owner Steve Bisciotti wrote a text message to Harbaugh. Dealing with the flu, Bisciotti wasn't able to attend the game. "I've never texted you during a game," said Harbaugh in the locker room afterward with cameras capturing him reading the text to the players. "We are...
SAN FRANCISCO -- For a team as storied as the San Francisco 49ers, it sure has been awhile since the last time they won a road playoff game. Jan. 8, 1989, to be exact. The 49ers traveled to Chicago, where they beat the Bears 28-3 at Solider Field as a pit stop on their way to the Super Bowl title in New Orleans. It wasn't until later that year when rookie running back LaMichael...
