Jim Harbaugh has a few words for Kevin Gilbride

Jim Harbaugh issued a statement today regarding comments that New York Giants offensive coordinator had towards Justin Smith.

First here is what Gilbride told the New York media today regarding Justin Smith:

‘Smith is a beast on the inside, he’s strong, he does as good a job of grabbing a hold of offensive linemen and allowing those twists to take place,’ ‘He never gets called for it so he gets away with murder.’

and here was Harbaugh’s response:

‘Kevin Gilbride’s outrageous, irrational statement regarding Justin Smith’s play is, first, an absurd analogy,’ ‘Second, it is an incendiary comment targeting one of the truly exemplary players in this league.

‘It’s obvious that the Giants coaching staff’s sole purpose is to use their high visibility to both criticize and influence officiating.’

You tell them Jim…

    I was thinking the same thing, this is used to influence this sundays game and it would upset me also!!!! Calling out our player like that, that was wrong!! I will be at this game cheering on our team, and I am hoping we score big on the Giants, the experts are saying it will be super close or the Giants will win. I keep hearing the media saying how much superior Eli is. I was not a fan of Alex over the years not at all, but he's made me a believer watching every game consistently. Its obvious the expert's havent watched everey game entrirely realizing how far Alex has come, it's because he has a positive thinking offensive master in Harbough who knows strategy and know QBACking something he was always lacking until last year.

    I think Alex is one small notch below Eli, but he's going in the direction to surpass him if he keeps this up! I hope we beat the Giants by a big margin not a close one but big! if it by a small margin it will still make the media think they got lucky, if its big by at least one touchdown or more it will prove it was not luck or by chance but we are for real and championship bound! I don't know why since the 80's this franchise can't get any love , we are one of the best, most winning franchises in the NFL history and every since the 80's the media doesnt give us much props, now if the Cowboys or cardinals win they get hyped liked they won a superbowl even when they loss there's attention and concern, but us we have to win big to prove anything or win big to get bandwagoners to jump aboard then jump ship a year or 2 later to another team and jump on there bandwagon.

    If we win, I will be excited to see media replaying the highlights being such a believer in Eli, hopefully this will Finally make them say I believe in ALEX!!! Needs to Alexsome love, this team some love and true respect!! I hope on my return home from the game this weekend my 49ers are victorious and the Texans lose at home, that will make my month!!!
