[tps_title]Jim Harbaugh once punched Jim Kelly and broke his hand[/tps_title]


You didn’t think we were done telling Jim-Harbaugh-is-a-dick stories, did you? This one might take the cake. It was October of 1997 and Harbaugh’s winless Indianapolis Colts were in San Diego to take on the Chargers. Harbaugh wasn’t playing because of an ankle injury. The day before the game, Harbaugh crashed an NBC production meeting — former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly was there interviewing some of Harbaugh’s teammates — confronted Kelly, a melee ensued and Harbaugh punched Kelly in the head. The result? A fractured throwing hand and a suspension. Why the incident, you might ask? Harbaugh was mad because Kelly called him a baby on air several weeks earlier.

    Gotta love the Harbaugh temper tantrum in the Atlanta game. The intitial “head-throw” and loss of the ability to stand upright comes right out of my 3-year old’s book of classic moves. We replayed that so many times we broke the DVR.

    Jim’s name should be changed to Dick, because he looks like a Dick.

    Wow, Jim’s career is like the perfect setting for the football version of Bull Durham.

    With all the head trauma business going on in the nfl, I wouldn’t shocked if all those blows to the head caused his being prick to become worse than what it was

    “I’m a total prick and sportsmanship be damned.”

    Sums it up perfectly

    ““I’ll just say this: ‘If it happens again, there will be changes made and they will be definite and they will be permanent.’ I’m not going to put 47 players’ futures in the hands of one player who thinks he knows more than I do.”

    Hell, yeah. We don’t more coaches say what they really feel?

    Really tough Superbowl to root for.
    Harbaughs both pricks.
    Don’t want Moss to get a ring.
    Don’t want Lewis to get another one.

    I dont hate Jim because he was a Chicago Bear (although thats reason enough) I just think the guy is a big D – Bag baby. Jim Kelly was right. His brother John is 5 times the man Jim is. Therefore i root for the Ravens in the SB……What i’ll be watching for is…..John Harbaugh crying and going off the deep end on the sidelines of the S B, under the stress of playing in the S B and his brother, he’ll be all wound up….Would be funny to see him punch a ref if he doesnt like a call…..lol

    Pulled for the Ravens as well.

    Jim Kelly was the man.

    Harbaugh’s wife is in my ring of honor.

    Jim Harbaugh was the nicest pro player i have ever met bar none,he once gave my daughter a piggyback ride through the Indianapolis airport. No. 4 will always be number 1 in my house.
