Jim Harbaugh feels like a “strong, mighty man” after Sunday’s win

AP

The second time around went a lot better for the 49ers.

They were 10-9 home losers to the Panthers during the regular season and gained just 151 yards while picking up 10 first downs on the way to that defeat. Sunday’s game in Carolina didn’t bear much resemblance to that one as the Niners rolled to a 23-10 win behind an offense that put together three long scoring drives in the second half to turn a 10-6 deficit into a 23-10 victory. It left coach Jim Harbaugh feeling pretty good about himself and his football team after booking a third trip to the NFC Championship Game in as many years.

“You’re very proud of your team when they do that — when you go out on the road and in the playoff game and beat another team that’s a very good football team in their stadium,” Harbaugh said, via the Sacramento Bee. “Yes, it does make you feel like a strong, mighty man.”

It was a methodical, physical performance that allowed the 49ers to take the Panthers’ best shots in the first half and then deliver bigger ones in response. The same will be necessary in Seattle next Sunday in the this season’s third round of what’s become the NFL’s most spirited rivalry.

  1. Hey Seahags……. You’re in trouble. Big red is coming to your dreary wet boring city. Hide the women and children ! Kap’s about to destroy your dream.

  2. strong mighty man, my backside !! What a phony !

    This coach is the biggest laughing stock in the NFL with all of his whining and carrying on especially on the sidelines. And then they say he’s competitive as all hell……another misconception !

    It eats him up to think his brother won a Super Bowl title before him and then beat his team in the process.

    He’ll really feel bad after next Sunday when the Hawks trounce his 49er team

  3. wkdblc52: u truly have to be one of these 2nd place isn’t bad type of persons, or winning isn’t everything type of thinkers!

    Sorry but if I lose to anyone family or
    Not, I am pissed and my blood boils thinking I didn’t do my all truthfully to win!

    But don’t worry your mentality breeds tons of 2nd place winners, or championship losers! Depending how you think

  4. Lol..I for one love to hear the haters. Especially those who criticize Harbaugh. Whiner, complainer, he may be both. One thing he is for sure is an excellent head coach. For the many Seahawks fans sure to read this, I don’t hate. Of course I loathe the Seahawks – but I’m honest and knowledgeable enough to admit that they’re an outstanding, tough, hard-nosed and well coached football team. Can’t wait for next Sunday..go Niners!

  5. I appreciate Niner fans are excited – as they should be after a great win – but don’t you actually have to win the next game and then the one after that, before you really start crowing? Seriously, some fans are crowning this team as SB winners already. Ask the 2007 Patriots how celebrating that “undefeated” season too early turned out for them.

    3 nfc championship games in his first 3 seasons? he can whine all he wants. face it the guy has been a winning coach everywhere hes been.
    I’d rather deal with him whining than cheat carroll looking like mr ed on the sidelines chomping at his gum

  7. hey jcf78……why don’t you go str8 to you know where…that jibberish you’re typing only proves to me you’re just like Jim Harbaugh, a spoiled, whiny, bombastic phony ! it must be awful to come on here and root for a guy who acts like a spoiled little child on the sideline……had your milk bottle, today ?

    HAWKS 24-6……..eat that jcf !!!!

  8. All I wanna know is if Kap is going to be bringing/wearing his Beats? If not it could be as ugly as it’s been each of the last 2 times SF has been there.

  9. Harbaugh is full of hot air. I’m hoping the 49ers and their fans (who all look like they were just released from San Quentin) suck an egg next weekend.

  10. I’m not a fan of either the 9ers or Seahawks, but Seattle is going to easily beat the 9ers. Seattle’s defense will easily control Kap and Wilson will do enough to win. Sorry 9er fans, but you had your chance last year.

  11. Great day for steelers fans. San Fran gets to get murdered by Seattle (preventing them from six rings) and the chargers who stole our playoff spot can play should a could a would a all off season.

  12. Harbaugh inherited a very good team filled with a bunch of high 1st round picks because the team sucked for so long. Carroll rebuilt a team the way he wanted, hard nosed and in your face. Both teams are very good, and I could see either winning nex t week, I think the Seahawks will win though. Kaep seems to fold like a cheap lawnchair under the noise of the 12th man. It will be interesting to see how the game is called, the NFL seems to be favoring teams in the playoffs, the 49’ers seemed to get away with a lot today. Complain all you want about the LOB, you got a ton of breaks today. Looking forward to a great game, and a trip to the Super Bowl?

  13. The Seahawks peaked early in the year. But the Niners are playing their best football right now.

    And the last two weeks have shown that the Niners can play on the road and under difficult conditions. The 12th man and their piped in crowd noise won’t be enough to make the difference.

    Niners win 23-16

    Go Niners!

  14. We finally get the chance it get the niners up here for a game that matters!! I cannot wait until Next weekend when the hawks get a chance to SHUT U CLOWNS UP!!!! We ain’t no Carolina!!!! I been front row at each niner game in seattle and I got bad news for their fanbase. NOTHING IS GONNA CHANGE

    HAWKS 31
    Niners 14

    GO HAWKS!!!

  15. Harbaugh is a good coach. 49ers are a good team.

    But they are so unappealing they are virtually impossible to root for.

  16. The Niners are not scared to come in and shut you clowns up. The last two times were debacles but Arizona proved how you are not invincible. We’re coming and the Quest for Six cannot be stopped.

    Hey at least you got Percy back …. oh wait

    GO NINERS!!!!!

  17. I’m sure he’s a good coach but the dude has a personality disorder. “strong and mighty man”? I can’t even imagine anyone even saying those words. Everyone rips Pete Carroll for the way he jumps around happy on the sidelines. I’ll take that over the constant crying and complaining this guy does. Watch him next week up in Seattle. He may have a stroke.

  18. can we please get past the silly name calling. fortywhiners? really? Seachickens? Really?

    Im a die hard niner fan, and my distaste for the seahawks is second to none, but folks please these are 2 really good teams, and next week is gonna be a great matchup.

    I think sensible fans can agree that the game will be close and can go either way.

    I will now leave it to the superfans who will predict scores of 136 to -10……

  19. Is it possible for both teams to lose next week? Overall, I find both of them insufferable. Between Aldon “If you’re happy and you know it shoot your guns” Smith and Richard “”Have I told you how great I am?” Sherman, I can’t figure out which team to root for.

  20. As a neutral fan I would take Jim over Pete on the basis of how they left their last jobs. Jim left and the program continued while Pete left USC high and dry and on probation. Character is judged by action not facial expressions.

  21. I learned one thing after watching the press conference today after the Niners win. Colin Kaepernick needs to show some class and act like a professional. Showing up with headphones around your neck makes you look stupid and unprofessional. What a punk.

    Nice move by Kapernick, mimicking Newton. Stay classy SF….
    ==================================

    I must have missed the play where Kap flopped after someone dove by him without touching him. Wanna tell me when that took place?.

  24. “19 seasons without a Super Bowl win.”

    Yea, that hurts a lot. I can still remember the last time the Niners won the super bowl. I even found my dad’s super bowl program from the game played at Stanford.

    The fact that they haven’t won in 19 years is especially tough since they went to the big game last year, are in the NFC Championship this year, and were 2 fumbles from a backup return man away from a trip to the superbowl 2 years ago.

    But yea, 19 years is a long time. I’d probably want to end it all if this non-championsihip-winning streak continues for 37 years.

  30. We all know harbarf is an idiot! Oh well. We all know Krappernoob is about the biggest narcissist on the planet. Big whoop
    Pride comes before a fall. That being said, they’ve managed to eke a win for a bit but….. They are due for a loss…. Odds are they peaked and the loss is coming and it wouldn’t matter who they’re playing. They will lost this Sunday… By how much, who knows. Who cares
    GO HAWKS!!!!!

  31. Oh so it was plenty okay for Hardy to mimic Kap after a sack in week 10 huh? Snivel some more hypocrite

  32. We aint no Carolina? Wow thats golden. Deangelo Williams fumbles inside your 10 after a long run that was about to put you away for you to squeek out a whopping 12-5 win. Mind you when they started off the season playin terrible.. So so impressive.

    ****************
    It’s pretty much a dead heat. But this article was about Harbaugh. Comments about Carroll should have been made yesterday.

  36. Loved that flag he got for berating the refs. It would be really cool to see him push or grab a ref and get ejected!

  37. Man do I hate the Harbaugh brothers. I hope they don’t start getting commercials like the Mannings.
    I also hate Brady and the Pats.
    If it ends up SanFran vs. Pats, I bet a lot of people just won’t watch …

    Go Broncos … Peyton needs another ring …

  38. People need to lighten up a bit! This is just one of those silly hilarious comments that Harbaugh makes all the time… they’re entertaining and harmless. Do people wish that every coach talked like Bill Belichik??? I’m no 49ers fan but it’s great having this guys in the league, comedy gold!

  39. Q&A.
    Whos the nfls hottest team?
    Who won seahawks or niners last time they met?
    Who won in green bay in zero degrees vs Rogers?
    Who man handled superman and beat up the panthers?
    Who is going to kick the blank out of the seapedies?
    Answer…..Niners

  40. So in 30 something years the Sea hawks have achieved the loudest stadium inside a giant amplifier and nothing else..congratulations guys.

  41. Hilarious someone named tarkentin would say the words no and super bowl win in the same sentence. Priceless. I love how Harbaugh gets under so many peoples skin. Thanks for caring. GO 49ERS!!!!

  42. Hilarious. ..shehawks fans telling anyone to stay classy, when they cheat on every level, from head coach to pets to phony stadium noise to banning other non fans from buying tickets to next game

  43. Love all the keyboard tough guy talk on Harbaugh. If he bugs you clowns that much go run up on him. He’s gotten results, his players love him and for all the “whining ” he does today was his first flag of any kind. I suspect its gonna work next week and if the refs call that game tight and it doesn’t favor Seattle they will implode being as that team as constructed has no championship experience. As we speak right now this SF team is better then last years and the most complete of the four teams left.

  44. Why are people arguing with this umphrey troll? He has more posts on this thread than any other. What a loser. There are real Seahawks fans and I’ll address them because this nobody isn’t worth my time.

    This is a tough match up and I simply can’t wait. If SF is going to win a ring this year it’s poetic that they’d have to go through Seattle at their house where, quite frankly, SF hasn’t done so hot the last couple times. This should be one for the ages.

  45. So you have one of the greatest franchises in all of sports going against one of the worst franchises in all of sports..
    It’s not a rivalry when Seattle fans are just jealous cause there a small market team in the shadow of a NFL legacy..

    Sucks being little brother

    Just leave that one to the Ravens players with a championship on the line.

  47. Wkd whatever u call yourself…. As I said 2nd place is in your bloodline! I gave you a opinion and you come out firing bullets.

    Never mind though being second is good for your life, that way you don’t have to try to go above and beyond. By the way name me the second place finisher of the last Olympics 100m runner? (With out googling). First place finisher Usain Bolt!

    Point proven second place is easily forgotten! All I was trying to say, and yes second place losers are easily offended!

  50. oh no!! the refs missed a 12 -man in the huddle call! that is why the panthers lost! they were clearly robbed. they wouldn’t let the db’s body-rock Vernon and Crabs after the play, so they were obviously just trying to give the niners a win. The panther’s d played perfectly like Luke K’s early pass breakup and then the next play-Florence’s no-ball-locating contact on Boldin. such favoritism o the refs not to reward the intelligent, championship-caliber play that Carolina displayed today.

    They also have the distinction of being the only team in NFL history to win a division with a losing record.

  52. Not a fan of either team, but people should stop spouting ass and look at the facts and stats. Probably the best new rivalry in pro sports. History has the teams playing eachother 30 times and are tied at 15-15, the past 2 seasons show Sf at candlestick wins both 13-6 and 19-17 and ‘Hawks at Century Link wins both 42-13 and 29-3. All four games are Kaepernick and Wilson as QB. Stats show us that SF just squeaks out wins at home but the Seahawks dominate wins at home. Hard to beat Seattle at home it’s not impossible cause we seen it in week 16 but……. This should be a closer game unlike the past two Seahawks win 23-17

  53. Harbaugh got flagged to get the clock stopped.

    In hindsight, he was paying attention to the details, something the often myopic Officials didn’t seem to notice.

    Every second mattered if another play was needed.

    My answer –
    1) I’d call it trying to play keep away.
    2) I’d call it something for the opposition to think about later.

  54. Hey norcalmafia glad to see you are out of solitary and got your internet privelages back, I have missed your intelligant posts about Seattle. You better be good for another week, so you can see your team lose.

  55. What? So he feels like a weak, puny woman when he loses? Unlike Marshawn Lynch, the league should pay him to shut up!

  56. He then yelled “I am a big strong man!” and grabbed the last chicken wing from the plate as the rest of the people watched awkwardly
