Near the beginning of a recent "Live for Football" Pepsi commercial, Jim Harbaugh stands at a dry erase board looking like he's about to go all "A Beautiful Mind" on us. During every airing it's difficult not to wonder what genius he's about to scribble on that blank slate.
We might get our answer one day.
Some coaches, like the Arizona Cardinals' Bruce Arians, detest the NFL owners' recent decision to mandate a team for HBO/NFL Films' joint television series "Hard Knocks." Harbaugh, however, came across more positive about the San Francisco 49ers potentially being selected for the show.
Harbaugh was decidedly less anti-Hard Knocks than assumed. Says he's a fan and wouldn't resist if 49ers were tapped. Said Harbaugh ...â Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) October 9, 2013
Harbaugh said he "found (the show) quite entertaining." He said he'd like to see more set parameters as far as which teams appear, but he spoke surprisingly positive for a man who usually guards his privacy like gold.
How great would it be to get an inside look at the terse, yet ever-entertaining Harbuagh and how he runs his program?
Of course, the is a good chance that Harbaugh spoke positively because he doesn't plan on missing the playoffs, thereby keeping his team out of the running for any mandate. He didn't sound like the 49ers would be volunteering anytime soon.
