Crabtree on 49ers' locker room: 'We good over here!'

Michael Crabtree isn't buying what Primetime is selling.

After NFL Media's Deion Sanders said on Sunday's NFL GameDay Final that 49ers players "really got some problems" with coach Jim Harbaugh, San Francisco's leading receiver took to Twitter on Tuesday to downplay the report:

It's significant to hear from Crabtree, known as a close friend of Deion's and initially considered by many as the Hall of Famer's source. Sanders denied on Twitter that Crabtree fed him the information, saying that his sources wear "uniforms, suits, and ties."

Sanders, of course, isn't the first to suggest unrest inside the team's locker room. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that grumbling from 49ers veterans over Harbaugh is getting "louder and louder," partly because the coach treats his players like "children."

"Personally, I feel that's a bunch of crap," Harbaugh told reporters Monday. "If someone has a good story to tell, they want to put their name to it. If I had a good story to tell, I'd want to put my name to it, so I don't put a lot of credibility to the unnamed source."

Best way for the Niners to make this go away? Keep pounding opponents the way San Francisco did to Philly on Sunday afternoon.
