49ers Whiners?

Even though they won the game against the Seahawks on Thursday night, San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh is making noise about the aggressiveness of Seattle’s defensive backs.


49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said he had some questions for the NFL office about the way Seattle’s cornerbacks defended his wide receivers last Thursday in San Francisco.

“I wouldn’t use the words, ‘locked up,’ ” Harbaugh said at a news conference Friday, according to CSN Bay Area. “We’ll take that up with the officials and get their view of it.”

Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner had a cut an dried answer after his team’s practice Monday.

“It’s obnoxious to me, to be honest,” Browner said. “They won the football game. We play a physical sport.”

And Seattle plays tough with its two cornerbacks of untypical size in Browner — who is 6 feet 4 and coming off a Pro Bowl appearance — and Richard Sherman, who is 6 feet 3.

A week earlier Harbaugh had made comments about the New York Giants complaints about San Francisco defensive lineman Justin Smith.

Harbaugh called that an “outrageous, irrational statement” and 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.”

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
