NFL Network researcher Deion Sanders pronounced Sunday night that a 49ers no longer wish to play for Jim Harbaugh.
“They wish him out,” Sanders said. “They’re not on a same page.”
Harbaugh’s reaction? He didn’t chop difference Monday during his news conference.
“I privately consider that’s a garland of crap,” he said.
However, it wasn’t usually Sanders. ESPN researcher Trent Dilfer pronounced in a radio pronounce Monday that a miss of appetite and bad physique denunciation by descent players in a 26-21 win over a Eagles on Sunday suggested a atmosphere around a group — led by a offensive-minded Harbaugh — has turn “almost toxic.”
Your thoughts, Jim? Harbaugh looked surprised.
“Really?” he said. “I haven’t seen Trent or Deion around much.”
Harbaugh’s point: How would Sanders or Dilfer know about a vibe around a 49ers?
The apparent answer, of course, is they’re vocalization with people in a classification with believe of a middle workings. Neither Sanders nor Dilfer cited a source, that Harbaugh noted.
“I consider whenever we pronounce about unnamed sources — if somebody has a good story to tell, they wish to put their name to it,” Harbaugh said. “… So we don’t put a lot of credit into a unnamed source.”
Unnamed-sources reports echoing a same thesis didn’t start with Sanders’ statements Sunday night. Before a 49ers’ season-opening win opposite Dallas, NFL Network reported that Harbaugh was losing a locker room. A follow-up news Sunday morning pronounced those voices of displeasure were removing “louder and louder.”
On Monday, Harbaugh pronounced players have not used his open-door process this deteriorate to atmosphere issues they have with his leadership.
Instead, Harbaugh embellished a design of togetherness and used Sunday’s come-from-behind win to make his point: The 49ers trailed 21-10 in a second entertain after they authorised dual touchdowns on special teams and another on an interception return. They responded by outscoring a Eagles 16-0 in a final 38 minutes.
“What we adore about a ballclub is there’s no finger-pointing,” Harbaugh said. “There’s sum faith in any other. And offense carried adult defense, invulnerability carried adult a offense and both doing that with a special teams. That’s a fun to be around. That’s a fun to coach.
“Now, they’re personification for any other. That’s what they should be doing. So I’m not holding any credit for that. I’m only expressing that it’s a fun to be around these fighters, these men.”
According to Sanders, some of those group have had it with Harbaugh.
“Are we unequivocally down with your conduct coach, San Francisco 49ers?” Sanders asked. “Because a approach it looks and what I’m hearing, you’re unequivocally not down for your conduct coach. And that’s a problem. They unequivocally got some problems that we hear rumblings. We all know people inside locker rooms.”
Sanders is reportedly tighten with Michael Crabtree and they share a same agent, that fueled conjecture a 49ers’ far-reaching receiver was a source for his statements.
Sanders, however, took to Twitter and pronounced he didn’t pronounce with Crabtree. In doing so, he suggested his source could have come from a front office: “My sources,” he wrote, “wear uniforms, suits and ties.”
Dilfer is tighten with 49ers ubiquitous manager Trent Baalke, who has had a quarrelsome attribute with Harbaugh. Before a season, Harbaugh and CEO Jed York tabled contract-extension talks with a coach, who was entering a fourth deteriorate of a five-year, $25million deal.
At a time, both Harbaugh and York pronounced they wanted to discharge a daze and have a solitary concentration be on winning a Super Bowl. That, obviously, hasn’t worked as planned, though Harbaugh insisted his relations with York and Baalke are strong.
They’re “very good,” Harbaugh said. “Everybody on a same page. Everybody focused on this season, creation it a best it can presumably be. Working good together.”
