After just watching Coach Jim Harbaugh address the media I am irked with Coach and his going three time zones on a short week whine. Coach I know you are not setting up an excuse that is not like you and if this is a us against the world ploy you could do better. I for one am not buying it especially after the defense spent a whopping 15 minutes on the field. You could not have a better Thanksgiving Day scenario.
First off yes we travel to the east coast is it really that big of deal not really the truth is good teams play well anywhere the 49ers are now a good team recent years past we would say man we have a hard time getting our bodies clock ready to play on the east, truth is we couldn’t win because we were bad. I for one remember the niners of the past who would beat you anywhere and anytime.
Second we play the late game I might have agreed with you slightly had we played at oh say 10 eastern but to play at 8 eastern I am pretty sure the players will be fully awake and ready to play the game. Heck by the fourth quarter it will be getting late for the Ravens and they can say that they got dominated in the fourth quarter because the clocks in their body’s was telling them time to shut down sounds ridiculous doesn’t it.
Finally you get to play against the Ravens a team coached by your big brother on national television what more could you want. Not only that but both teams are in first place and fighting for playoff positioning it is not going to be to difficult for the players to get up for this game.
So Coach you are building a Winner with a Blue Collar Mentality, you have a shirt with your name on it. This 49er team should say we welcome this challenge and welcome the Ravens to bring it because when we win there shouldn’t be any inkling of an excuse it should be because we played better than you.
