Jim Harbaugh Still Crying

After the officials did not call pass interference against Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith on the 49ers’ final offensive play of the Super Bowl, many observers who agreed with the non-call said that in a key play with the championship on the line, the officials just have to let the players play.

Unsurprisingly, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh does not agree with that.

Harbaugh said on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco that he thinks pass interference should be officiated the same way at any point in the game, and that the officials should be just as strict about calling penalties in the game’s closing seconds as they are at any other time.

“A penalty is a penalty no matter when it occurs in a game,” Harbaugh said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “It could occur in the first play of the game. It could occur on the last play of the game, or any play in between. That’s the rules of football. You let ‘em play or let ‘em get away with something. Which would you rather have? Let’s play the rules of the game. . . . If there’s a penalty then it’s a penalty — doesn’t matter what kind of game. . . . It’s the rules of football. If it’s a penalty, you call it. If you see it, you call it. That’s how I feel about it.”

Harbaugh complained immediately after the game about the non-call, and with time to think about it, his complaints haven’t stopped. Harbaugh thinks his team got ripped off by the refs at the end of the Super Bowl.

...and if he was on the other end of the call, he would not be saying this. Whether he's wrong or right, it is what it is. The results aren't going to change. Time to suck it up and move on. Crybaby isn't a good look.

John, Jim Harbaugh still haven’t spoken since Super Bowl

Ravens coach John Harbaugh spoke to his brother, Jim, immediately after Super Bowl XLVII ended. Since then, John Harbaugh has had more conversations with David Letterman.

Appearing Thursday on Letterman’s CBS late-night show, John Harbaugh talked about his post-game chat with Jim.

“I told him I loved him, good game, and he said, ‘Congratulations, I’m proud of you,’” John Harbaugh said.

“Have you spoken to him since?” Letterman asked.

“I have not,” John Harbaugh said, to laughter from the studio audience. “We will. Soon.”

John Harbaugh generated other laughter during the two-segment visit. Asked about video showing him berating a league official during the 34-minute power outage, John Harbaugh said, “There was a concern about restaurants after the game. New Orlean’s got a lot of great restaurants, Dave. We weren’t sure where to go.”

John Harbaugh also joked that he was arguing that the game should have been called at that point, with Baltimore leading 28-6. “It’s like baseball,” he said. “You get your four-and-a-half innings in. It’s done.”

Harbaugh explained that the anger he flashed during the blackout likely came from a concern that Jim and the 49ers eventually would make a game out of it, despite the 22-point deficit.

“That was not surprising,” John Harbaugh said. “The longer I stood over there, knowing Jim, knowing the kind of competitor he is. The type of team they had, you could just feel like they were gonna make a comeback. And you just knew it was gonna be tough. That’s the way it was our whole life growing up.”

And that’s the way it’ll be going forward, especially since Jim likely will never get past the fact that a flag wasn’t thrown on Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith on that fourth-and-goal play from the five.

Plug it Jimbo. What's say we start a nationwide movement and have everyone who is sick of his pissing and moaning mail him a pacifier.

They did get robbed, but it's in the books, Jim. Move forward.

Re: Jim Harbaugh Still Crying

Apparently it never occurred to Jim that one Harbaugh brother was gonna lose the game. As said elsewhere, he's got all off-season to piss and moan about it if he wants ... or he can man up and get ready for next season. Makes no difference to anyone but Whiner fans.
