49ers going to league about Seahawks' physical CBs

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Sherman and Browner locked up Niners receivers Kyle Williams, Michael Crabtree and Randy Moss, taking some liberties within the five yards of the line of scrimmage where contact is permissible.

    "I wouldn't use the words, 'locked up,'" Harbaugh said Friday, via CSNBayArea.com. "We'll take that up with the officials (NFL office) and get their view of it."

  • Harbaugh... what a hypocrite:

    viewtopic.php?f=4&t=53486

    "Kevin Gilbride's outrageous, irrational statement regarding Justin Smith's play is, first, an absurd analogy," Harbaugh said. "Second, it is an incendiary comment targeting one of the truly exemplary players in this league. It's obvious that the Giants coaching staff's sole purpose is to use their high visibility to both criticize and influence officiating."

  • Seattle's corners got away with a lot, in the first half especially. Ultimately, when you play overly physical past 5 yards as a CB, it makes you easier to block, because you have to actively disengage to tackle a runner or support the short passing game.

    This was the adjustment San Francisco made at half-time, and it worked.

  • Smart play on his part. Our DBs were engaging the WRs past 5 yds but the refs have started to let them play. Now Harbaugh is trying to affect their effectiveness. We will see next game if the league has listened. As far as Justin Smith holding OL players, it would be upon Pete to return the gamesmanship by putting together tape on Smith and submitting it to the league.

    I think the chances for defensive holding/pass interference by the DB being called is more likely than defensive holding by the DT. This could basically make Sherman and Browner ineffective. That's his right to complain. Same with the Clemons facemask penalty on Smith. That probably draws a fine from the league as well.

    There is no love lost. Just folks looking for an edge. Don't agree but he is protecting his players and trying to weaken an opponent for the rematch. Return the favor if you can.

  • Jim Har-baw is the biggest whiner in the history of the universe.

    Because of the fear of injury, the game seems to be evolving so
    that hard hits, not illegal hits, hard hits will be outlawed.

    I hate to paraphrase a Stealer, but Jack Lambert would suggest
    that they wear skirts and ballerina slippers.

  • Is he going to discuss the HUGE PI non-call against Tate at the same time? You know the one that would easily be called in any BASKETBALL game........... clearly cutting off the WR and then falling down which somehow wasn't called........

    Different subject. There were not hard hits or hits to the head here. The complaint is illegal holding etc

  • Seattle's DBs got away with murder well after five yards. Harbaugh may be a massive douche-canoe, but he's right to complain.

    On the plus side, our DBs are actually getting away with contact calls these days. Last year Browner was getting flagged for giving dirty looks.

  • Revis plays the same way and nobody says a word because he's Revis and he's a great corner. I hate to break it to douchebag Harbaugh, but physicality is part of FOOTBALL! Revis is great just like Browner and Sherman because they know how to frustrate receivers. It's a huge part of the game. If good corners can't actually play physical and "cover" receivers, it might as well be flag football or games with scores like 70 - 60.

    And he whines like this when they win. Just imagine if they would have lost.


    I just read the article. That is ridiculous. If the league actually listen to these whiny douchebags, then there's a real problem. This is unreal. I try really hard not to complain, but this is just so messed up I don't even have the words. He has some nerve making excuses for Green Bay and New England as well as his own bitching and moaning. I guess Seattle should bring up all the holding on Clemons too. I see it multiple times every game and it's never called against the league's favorites. I don't see this kind of stuff brought up to the league when it's one of the league's favorite east coast teams. What a damn hypocrite.

    I know this is a lot of ifs, ands, or buts, but I can see it now, at least three or four illegal contact, pass interference, and defensive holding calls per game. Then even more in the December game against SF.

  • Lol.

    So when someone calls out one of his players for possibly playing outside the rules, he goes nuts defending him but if his opponent does something, he needs to run to the league like a child to their mother?

    I don't know when it will happen (I suspect a few years) but Harbaugh is going to absolute lose it one of these days (it will be really entertaining) and I think it start his career spiraling down out of control.

  • Just saw this one Sando's blog btw

    Officials called 11 penalties in the game, assessing eight, but none was against Seattle's defensive backs. We shouldn't expect Harbaugh or his staff to lodge any public complaints, however. That option went away when Harbaugh called out New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride for trying to influence officiating in regard to defensive holding.

  • No wonder they have the nickname 'whiners.' Do they honestly think their guys aren't getting away with the same thing. Our guys are bigger, so they can use it to their advantage more. That's why they're wanking.

  • Easy to use the douche bag and hate card when your team benefitted from the calls.
    Every single team in the NFL puts together a film and sends it to NFL the day after every game to get clarifications on calls and non calls.
    The only reason this has become public is because Harbaugh was specifically asked a question in a press conference today and he answered the question.

  • The only people who care about JH's personality are non - niner fans. Because he's a good coach.

    People that know em personally, love the guy. Some of you guys take these media comments too far. Someone wishes his plane would crash?

    haaha well that would be one way for Seattle to win the NFC west.

    He may act like a maniac, but its not like he cheated his way through college and jumped ship as it was sinking and got off scott free...Actions are louder then words and Pete Carrol is one of the shadiest in the league.

    He's running to the principal. Total pussy just like you and the rest of you front running 9er fans who never showed their face before your team didn't suck for the first time in 2 decades.

    Let's get real. Harbaugh is opportunistic but lacks integrity big time.

    Well.... until the sanctions were about to come down on USC, Pete always claimed no interest in the NFL and that he was very happy at USC.

    Pete always said he didn't think he'd ever get what he wanted in the NFL and thus doubted he'd leave USC, especially since he loved being there so much.

    Paul Allen was the first guy who actually offered Pete everything he said he'd want if he were to ever leave. He has final say over player personnel, he had a say in picking the GM, he has been able to completely employ his philosophy and approach in all facets throughout the franchise, he got support for his foundation (A Better LA and now also A Better Seattle). Rumor has it he and John Schneider were also promised at least four years to turn things around regardless of the win/loss tally.

    He also got a pay raise.

    He may act like a maniac, but its not like he cheated his way through college and jumped ship as it was sinking and got off scott free...Actions are louder then words and Pete Carrol is one of the shadiest in the league.


    troll much?


    Yeah I'm sure his wife loves being around him when he constantly screams at her for making the wrong dinner or not putting on the TV station he wanted.

  • Well.... until the sanctions were about to come down on USC, Pete always claimed no interest in the NFL and that he was very happy at USC.
    And right when the sanctions were about to come.... welll we all know he ran with his tail between his legs as fast has he could.

    Pete always said he didn't think he'd ever get what he wanted in the NFL and thus doubted he'd leave USC, especially since he loved being there so much.

    Paul Allen was the first guy who actually offered Pete everything he said he'd want if he were to ever leave. He has final say over player personnel, he had a say in picking the GM, he has been able to completely employ his philosophy and approach in all facets throughout the franchise, he got support for his foundation (A Better LA and now also A Better Seattle). Rumor has it he and John Schneider were also promised at least four years to turn things around regardless of the win/loss tally.

    He also got a pay raise.[/quote]

    Don't confuse them with facts, my brotha. I don't think Pete was afraid to stay there and take on the sanctions. It isn't like it was a death knell for the program.

    It's like saying that Harbaugh knew he could never compete for a title at Stanford so he bolted for the NFL. He actually abandoned Andrew Luck in arguably his most important season. However, I wouldn't say that because we all know getting a great opportunity in the NFL is something that most wouldn't pass up on.

    Of course if Pete had taken the Cowboys, the Bears, the Giants, or some other team that everyone think is a dream job, they would just say he got an excellent opportunity.

    I always wanted to beat Pete when he was with the Trojans (Husky fan here), but I never thought he wasn't a good guy or a good coach. I actually was against him coming to Seattle because I didn't trust his personnel decisions. I was wrong, wrong, wrong...

    Can't wait to hear the b!tching after we spank the 69ers in our house and take the division back.


    Actually, what speaks volumes is that the coach that has completely owned your head coach both in college and the pros and the best you can do is call him names and wish he dies in a plane crash....


    Pretty tough when you have a bunch of first rounders from the last decade to play with. Let's see Harbaugh build a team from the ground up like the Seahawks then we'll talk.

  • Not to mention one of the most important people making the personell decisions for the niners is now with the Seahawks. I think Harbaugh saw the writing on the wall and knew once Andrew Luck was gone he wouldnt have anywhere near the same success, not to mention he wasnt going to come anywhere close to sniffing a national championship.

    I think Mr Carroll won a couple of those AND with different qb's.

    PS: I don't wish any harm or disease to harbaugh. Who's got it better than him anyways??????

  • This may be the beginning of the end for Harblaugh. The tail is wagging the dog if his players whine to him and he runs straight to the league with it. Let the unraveling begin(^_-)
