And why would you expect anything else? San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh continues to whine about his stupid read option quarterback potentially getting hit.
Earlier this week, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews repeatedly said his defense needs to hit Colin Kaepernick. Then Harbaugh complained and compared the statement to some Bountygate shit.
So the NFL’s VP of officials stepped forward and made things clear. The defense can hit a quarterback running the option as long as it’s not clear that he doesn’t have the ball.
As it should be. How can you play football if you can’t hit a guy you think has the ball?
Well, that didn’t make Jimbo too pleased. So he did what he does best. He whined.
“I know what the rules are, I know how they’ve been explained, but there’s still some gray area,” Harbaugh said. “When you start using words like ‘clearly’ — he clearly doesn’t have the ball — what does that really mean? I just handed off, I don’t have the ball, he’s got the ball, put your hands up? There’s a bit of a gray area there.”
And then whined some more.
“To me, he’s a quarterback until he leaves the pocket as a running threat,” Harbaugh said. “I think it’s flawed, the way they’ve got it now.”
And then whined some more.
“Treat him like a running back?” Harbaugh said. “You’re opening a license to hit him outside the strike zone. I’m entitled to my opinion, that’s why I answered the question. I think it’s flawed and I think it’s biased.”
Well, fuck, Jim. If you think the rule is flawed and biased, then we better run out and change it!
From now on, all rules will be designed to favor you, your team and the style of offense you run. Then what will you complain about? I’m sure we’ll all hear when your local JCPenney runs out of those khaki pants you so love.
So if its up to him, the qb is a qb until he leaves the pocket as a running threat, so the defense should just stand around and let him get up to speed, and establish he has the ball and even then still leave the pocket before they even think about touching the qb
Lets do things his way, asshole

Mr. Jim Harbaugh
San Francisco 49’ers
“In response to your recent inquiry for clarification of contact rules for quarterbacks that run the ‘pistol’ or read-option offense, the NFL remains firm in its belief that until your QB tests positive for estrogen, the NFL will continue to allow opposing defenders to tackle him.
We also understand that since your results for the same tests returned a positive result, you will continue to piss and moan about a ruling that the other 99.99999999% of the league agrees with.
We agree that you are entitled to your opinion, but at the same time we really don’t give a shit”.
NOW FELLA’S let the little boy have his tantrums. I just wonder how he feels when the shoe is on the other foot. flop on the floor and wiggle and moan, and cry cry cry
Goooooo Pack Goooooooo
Jesus Christ, this guy is a fucking dillhole. Why don’t you just put a tu-tu on Tat Boy and hand him a box of tampons and be done with it.
This does not bode well for a team that a lot of people are picking to win the Super Bowl this year.
I actually love Jim Harbaugh as a head coach but yeah even I have to agree that this is completely ridiculous of him to do
Waaaaaah! Waaaaaah! My QB is the best QB in the whole-wide world and you can’t touch him! Waaaaaah! Waaaaaaaah!
Somebody get Jimmy a snickers. He whines like Justin Bieber when he’s hungry.
Oh you just know how the replacement refs would handle this one, right?
I personally don’t watch torture porn….So i’ll leave that to wolf’s expertise.
All u guys are garbage,its niners baby and u guys f’n suck well see tomorrow when u guys are cryn about losing
So, he’s going to tell his D not to hit Russell Wilson when they play him twice a year, right?
Of course, don’t you know he’s an immortal deity that can do no wrong?
Excellent point. …
He is just afraid his little baby boy colin will get hurt and his season will go to shit. That sounds great. Complete classless douche!
