After his 49ers beat the Seahawks, coach Jim Harbaugh went home and did some channel surfing. And he wasn’t happy that he never saw his own team.
“Kind of flipped through the channels, the NFL Network, the highlight express, and the ESPN blitz, and never caught one highlight of the 49ers on any of those,” Harbaugh said today.
Harbaugh said the lack of 49ers highlights on TV demonstrates the perception that the 49ers aren’t a good team.
“I mean, just kind of documents what you know. What the perception is of our team around the league and around the country,” Harbaugh said. “It’ll be up to us to do something about that. We can take control of that and that’s something we need to do.”
So Harbaugh sees it as part of his job to make the media believe the 49ers are good. He’ll be happy to know that Florio picked them to make the playoffs.
