Lest you forget, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh will always be there to remind you that he is the biggest dick in the NFL.
Why? Because that’s what dicks do. They can’t not be dicks. Dick is engrained in their DNA. And if you put it under a microscope, Jim Harbaugh’s DNA would have a tiny dick hanging from it.
So what is Dicky McDickerson dicking out about now?
Well, he doesn’t like that the Green Bay Packers plan to hit his quarterback. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has been talking about how important it will be to hit 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick all week. Here’s a sample.
“It looks as if as long as that quarterback is carrying out that fake, he loses his right as a pocket passer and rules that govern that,” Matthews told Bay Area reporters in a Wednesday conference call. “We’ll see the hits that are legal and what’s not legal, but we think our game plan fits within the scheme of the officials and what we want to do.”
So what is Harbaugh’s reaction? Why, to cry foul of course. Because you can’t hit the quarterback in football!
“You’re hearing a lot of tough talk right now,” Harbaugh said. “You’re hearing some intimidating type of talk — kind of things we were hearing a couple years ago.”
“[It] sounds a lot like targeting a specific player,” Harbaugh said. “You definitely start to wonder. A man usually doesn’t tell you his bad intentions. You know what’s being said publicly, not what’s being said privately. I hope their intent is not going to be anything that’s not within the rules.”
Harbaugh’s whining is of course referring to the New Orleans Saints and the whole Bountygate fiasco and that makes total sense.
We all know the Packers are an organization known around the NFL for not playing within the rules, for employing deviants and cons, and for not caring about their public image. So the comparison TOTALLY makes sense.
And we’re sure the 49ers game plan does not involve hitting Aaron Rodgers. At no time during this week did anyone say “we’ve got to hit Aaron Rodgers” at the 49ers compound. Because that would be ludicrous!
So expect the 49ers to drop everyone into coverage all game long in order to stop the Packers passing attack. Because they can’t be rushing the quarterback after McDickerson’s comments now.
Oh, and in case you missed it during Super Bowl week, here are some great moments in Jim Harbaugh.
