Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed that he spoke to his brother Jim after the San Francisco 49ers outlasted the New Orleans Saints , 36-32, Saturday evening. "We talked last night after the game," John Harbaugh said in his post-game comments. "He was pretty happy. I was happy for him. But I couldn't get quite as happy as he was. He was fired up, and I think he was really proud of his team. I'm proud of him. I'm proud of Jim. I'm proud of his staff over there.

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce can take his time healing his injured quadriceps. He can hang out in the whirlpool and get a couple of deep tissue massages. Get some more ultrasound treatments. If he wants, take another week or two off. I'm a supporter of the big back club and the Ravens have two of them in rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro (226 pounds) and, when he returns, in Pierce (230 pounds). Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis made a believer out of me. A team can have a home-run hitter at tailback, but there is nothing more demoralizing in football than a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 230-pound running back shoving the ball down your throat.

SANTA CLARA -- Jim Harbaugh's preparations for Super Bowl XLVII took an unexpected turn Friday morning when he called into a sports-talk radio show. Not just any show, however. Harbaugh took notes while listening to sage advice from Pro Football Hall of Fame coach John Madden, who hosts a daily segment on KCBS 740-AM. Madden coached the Raiders to their first Super Bowl championship, a 32-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI in January 1977. Harbaugh will try matching that feat Feb. 3 when his 49ers face the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans.

As usual, the Super Bowl champions suffered a drain of talent in the offseason. But that won't stop the Seattle Seahawks from winning a second straight NFL title. Repeating as champion is difficult, so much in fact that the last team to do it was the New England Patriots after the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The Seahawks also lost two offensive starters in free agency, and they cut two on defense to alleviate salary cap concerns. But Seattle is still loaded, especially on defense, which should carry it to the Super Bowl where the Seahawks will defeat either the Denver Broncos or the Patriots from the AFC. The Seahawks have allowed the fewest points in the league the past two seasons.

After 60 minutes and probably 100 questions, Jim Harbaugh launched himself down the podium steps Tuesday with the same tight smile he had going up an hour earlier. How'd Super Bowl media day go for you, Jim? "Enjoyed it," Harbaugh said with nod of his head. I think he was telling the truth, mostly -- Harbaugh certainly seemed determined to embrace his responsibility, the role and the entertainment value of the media madness. The 49ers coach was patient throughout this long-anticipated endurance test, even during the 20 questions about playing against his brother John's Baltimore Ravens.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh held a joint news conference Friday morning at the New Orleans Convention Center, ending the session by posing for pictures with their family and the Lombardi Trophy, though neither coach touched the trophy. Even though one brother is going to lose at the expense of the other, John Harbaugh said the result will generate the same emotion. "It's not really about how we're going to feel,” John Harbaugh said. “Every coach, every player, everybody in the organization, when you win, it's jubilation.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh and his brother, San Francisco 49ers coach John Harbaugh, avoided questions about how they were alike and how they were different during joint practices last week. Now that the dust has settled, John Harbaugh had a little fun Monday at the expense of his brother's television commercials - and his own. “Coming to a theater near you,” John Harbaugh said of their acting skills during a light moment at the end of his media session Monday. Harbaugh was asked about his new role in M&T Bank commercials, on which he seemed eager to get notes.

With unique insight from his older brother John, Jim Harbaugh took a historic step into the NFL on Friday when he became the 18th coach of the San Francisco 49ers. It was historic because there have never been two brothers serving as head coaches in the NFL before — John is in his third successful season with the Ravens. It was also historic because Jim Harbaugh recreated the path taken by Bill Walsh some 41 years ago — from the University of Stanford to San Francisco — when Walsh launched the 49ers' dynasty era. Harbaugh's introduction brought to a swift conclusion a whirlwind week when Stanford beat Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl and triggered a bidding war for the Cardinal coach.

A few hours after the Ravens introduced John Harbaugh as head coach, Jim Harbaugh found himself rummaging through a closet in his home near the campus of Stanford University, where the latter Harbaugh wrapped up his first season as head coach. After a few minutes, Jim Harbaugh, who is 15 months younger than his brother, emerged victorious with the object of his search: a pair of Ravens shorts. "I threw them on [Saturday] night when I was at home," he said proudly. "I dug them out of the closet.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jim Harbaugh's most humiliating moment in the NFL may have been his most defining.On a cool, fall day in October 1992, when he was in his sixth year with the Chicago Bears, Harbaugh checked off on a play and threw an interception that led to a 21-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.Moments afterward, Bears coach Mike Ditka stalked and screamed at the quarterback on the sidelines in one of the most replayed tantrums in league history.Harbaugh's dad, who was at the game, was crushed by the incident.

Tyrod Taylor has manned the clipboard on the sideline for three years, living the life of a backup quarterback while Joe Flacco has orchestrated the Ravens' offense. Flacco has been remarkably durable and never missed a start in his six seasons despite a sprained medial collateral ligament, a hip contusion and minor ankle and knee injuries. The Ravens have never had to experience life without Flacco during the regular season or playoffs. And Taylor has never truly been put to the test of running the offense in a critical situation.

You might have heard that the Harbaugh brothers had no time to discuss the potential for fights at the Ravens' and San Francisco 49ers' joint practices last weekend. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said it was a bit of an indictment on the media that all anyone could focus on when two NFL teams got together was how often they would fight, and his brother, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, accused the media of practically salivating over a negative moment to broadcast. The teams made it three days with nary a skirmish -- wide receiver Steve Smith won the locker room pool -- and we were all left to ponder whether the brothers Harbaugh had helped the NFL turn over a new leaf on fight-free joint practices.

There were no real fights between the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers during a joint practice session Saturday at the Ravens' training complex. The closest they came to a skirmish was a brief shoving match between Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee and 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu. And that didn't seem to surprise the father of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. "The amazing thing is these teams that get together, they normally do the two or three days before the game, and then you play the game and get on the plane and go home," said Jack Harbaugh, a retired former football coach at Western Kentucky, Western Michigan and Michigan.

San Francisco 49ers players walked around the Under Armour Performance Center on Saturday, following signs that directed them to destinations important over the next three days. Arrows pointed them to the dining area, the showers and the indoor training facility, which has been partially transformed to house San Francisco's locker and training rooms. Anquan Boldin didn't need the help. He knew his way around. It had been more than 16 months since the veteran wide receiver was last in the building, but Boldin was one 49er excited about the trip to the East Coast and the joint practices against the team with which he spent three seasons and won Super Bowl XLVII.

Ravens backup cornerback Chykie Brown was briefly kicked out of practice Saturday morning by coach John Harbaugh after Brown booted the football in frustration following a play. Brown had a potential interception glance off his hands when he kicked the football down the field, angering Harbaugh since that would have drawn a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct if this had been a game. "Chykie, get off the field," Harbaugh said loudly. "Get off the field. " Brown immediately complied and ran inside to the Ravens' training complex before returning to practice a short time later in full uniform.

Another Harbaugh Bowl could be looming on football's biggest stage. If John Harbaugh 's Ravens defeat the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game, and if Jim Harbaugh 's San Francisco 49ers beat the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC championship this weekend, it would set up an unprecedented Super Bowl between the two brothers in New Orleans. The potential matchup would pit John Harbaugh against his younger brother for the second time as NFL coaches. They met previously in the regular season on Nov. 24, 2011 at M&T Bank Stadium in a game won, 16-6, by the Ravens.

He described himself merely as a caller from Baltimore, and Jack and Jackie Harbaugh couldn't believe the nerve of his question. Jack and Jackie are parents to John and Jim Harbaugh, who are about to become the first brothers ever to coach against one another in the Super Bowl. And they've always remained fiercely neutral regarding any competition between their boys. So they couldn't believe their ears when this guy from Baltimore asked if it was true that they've always liked Jim better.

The San Francisco 49ers will stay in the Baltimore area for several days following their Aug. 7 preseason matchup against the Ravens to participate in joint practices with the team that beat them in Super Bowl XLVII. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said his team will return the favor, possibly as early as next year's training camp. "We will go back to San Francisco at some point in time -- probably next year," Harbaugh said. "We're looking forward to it. " The Ravens have never participated in joint practices with any team, although they did have scrimmages with the Washington Redskins.

OXFORD, OHIO -- As Kristen Visbal scanned the Internet looking for images of John Harbaugh, she kept encountering the Ravens' head coach in the same pose. Picture-after-picture, there was Harbaugh, wide-eyed and steel-jawed, standing on the sideline with his arm outstretched in the air. "Every person has a pose that they assume on a regular basis," Visbal said. "One of those for John was putting his fist in the air. It's a nice, strong position. " For Visbal, it's only fitting for Harbaugh to be immortalized in that way. The Delaware-based sculptor's bronze statue of the Super Bowl -winning head coach will be erected Saturday in the famed Cradle of Coaches at Miami University of Ohio, Harbaugh's alma mater.
