xlvii_still2bJim Harbaugh. The emotional San Francisco 49ers Head Coach lost a Super Bowl XLVII Game he thought he should have won over The Baltimore Ravens. At that point, after the goal line stand by the Ravens, Harbaugh would be excused for forgetting that he lost the Super Bowl to his brother. After composing himself, and greeting John Harbaugh, Jim faced the media:

49ERS HEAD COACH JIM HARBAUGH

(on the outcome of the game) “We want to handle this with class and grace. Had several opportunities in the game. Didn’t play our best game. Ravens made a lot of plays. Our guys battled back to get back in it. We competed and battled to win. Yes, there’s no question in my mind that there was a pass interference and then a hold on (Michael) Crabtree on the last one.”

(on what he told his team after the power outage) “Just alerted them of the time and to stay loose.”

(on Colin Kaepernick’s game) “I think he was making good throws the entire game. There was one that got a little high. Again, in my opinion, that series should have continued.”

(on the power outage) “I don’t know what the percentage it affected us was.”

(on using the timeout in the final series) “I felt the clock was running down and we weren’t going to be able to get it off.”

(on Joe Flacco) “Joe got out of some sack situations, but then we had a chance to get him wrapped up. He was pretty slippery in those situations. Threw the ball up for grabs two or three times. They made plays on the ball.”

(on Chris Culliver’s pass interference call) “The interference on Chris? Didn’t thank that was an interference. You’re talking about the one that extended their drive when they made their second-to-last drive with the ball? Didn’t see that as…”

(on Chris Culliver’s play overall) “I think he did fine.”

(on LaMichael James’ fumble) “He was battling for yards, battling to get it back to the line of scrimmage. We didn’t win the turnover battle. “

(on the illegal formation on the first play) “There were some big penalties. The 5-yard variety really hurt us in the game. The first play of the game and the two off-sides that extended drives.”

(on the safety) “Still haven’t gotten an explanation on the safety. It was obviously the intent of the Ravens to tackle and hold him, but not one holding flag came out. It’s a good scheme on their part to hold as many people as they can and you teach them just to tackle when you’re taking a safety like that, but not one holding penalty was called. I haven’t gotten an explanation. Again, I realize I’m on the side of the 49ers, I’m the coach of the 49ers. I probably have some bias there. In my mind, I thought it was obvious. That’s not the way they saw it.

(on the effect of the power outage) “I thought out guys battled, they competed. We got a spark and we weren’t going to look back after that. I thought we battled right to the brink of winning. It was a heck of a football game.”

(on what he said to John Harbaugh after the game) “Congratulations. And that I was proud of him.”

(on what John Harbaugh said to him after the game) “I think the same thing.”

(on why Frank Gore didn’t get the ball on the final four snaps) “We had other plays called.”

Stay tuned.
