Harbaugh talks about Michael Crabtree's impressive performance, praises Alex Smith's play, is pleased with his defense, and touches on his postgame handshake with Jim Schwartz.
Team really sucked it up. Sucked up down the stretch and and try to go. Two provided the most of Michael Crabtree. You know just suck it up getting those. In those big first downs physical run after catch. And then and a lot of guys guys. You know overcame some stuff and and got the job done and we do or B we -- -- -- tough. Close aggressive -- -- in game. And it was. And there's -- deserve this hell did you go and knowing that we're. -- and we tried. Now we expected. We're expecting physical game. Anticipated that we got that. Their physical team. And yeah that was. That's good keeps us playing hard and fast and tough and our guys are accustomed to that and and our credit shy away from that type of ball game. -- thought doctors here from people don't. Yeah well I mean like that a quarterback -- is. Turnovers. And missed shot. -- yards. Some. Thought or all it is a tremendous job. Couple -- now. Strangely. And you. Know eventually. Stop. And over. Fifty minutes in the game third. -- you're always. Kudos. -- -- -- We -- all of the little conservative. All the work that you know you and it's -- they didn't. What. And among a couple of that we took the penalty in that the crowd going. To put up. Just. You know playing the percentages and -- fort. Felt like we were. To punch it in there. Ball. Yeah they. And they did. It is pretty good job of and our guys did a pretty good job getting them didn't shut down and -- that we didn't let me big runs get out. And then you. Try to keep the big runs the big passes from happen and then eventually get and show them a series of downs and our guys thought that a real good job of that. -- -- -- I don't know -- Yeah. I couldn't really say how how often does it but let alone we're talking about Alex. You're right back. I felt you know just during the game and at the end of the game there that this is this -- Alex's. Better best performances. He felt like there's a couple of he could've -- made it I thought that he was. You know he hit a great night. Put the ball on the money and getting in -- that in his hands of our guys authority. Played it played an excellent game both. -- thrown the football and and getting us in the right places you porno. Yeah Andy. But I feel -- -- tough. In the game and he's done both. Accurate. That's the thing it's just about. This matchup. Two good teams. And that that. That was that was or two good football teams. Early in the season. It he. Coaches. That doesn't really do. They. -- -- you speak for another guy -- about it I think secretly he hopes it comes down -- that I think he likes that physical. Part of the game because he's because he thrives on it. So well on media. You know he is. He's a tough tough guy that'll suck it up on them. You know part -- and that he did that force tonight he did throughout the game you know especially in that last drive. There was. You know multiple guys. In some big drives. Six minute drive there into the game and Victor. Early in the game started fast it was good from that standpoint. Start the second half fast. Thought it was a a good game for office and you know couple couple times and we can. -- Made some more plays and some some chances we had that. I think overall pretty darn good. I'm -- Parcells it's. You are an -- Wizards offense -- game when you guys to get home for any other community that. Well hopefully it all off all -- phases. Continue to improve and you know that's who we go to. That's who we got to do you know we're gonna get better and and come back every single week in and prepare ourselves in and and win that's the single most important factor but but you certainly want to improve what you're doing it. All of these guys coming -- you happy with the play. Back. Series. It's. Score. Yeah it was it was huge you know we did the adversity of the turnover. And then. No keep them but never into there and hurt our defense takes a philosophy and they do a heck of a job. You know kept him out of their four field goals you know until the last last drive of the game. You know that was huge number times are defense to get those stops. Yeah he's also it certainly didn't punch. This earlier Jerry punch these. Whose name. I -- what would you -- and take that. That is game you know tomorrow. Can't really say. Accuracy that. Mickelson and easy this week. It's. Children playing -- helmet. Right I have days where you. That the -- -- it really when he was when he was slide media. He got to cut over the bridge of his nose informed of that when he lose when news but I think the you know story this game it was a physical game. As for physical contest that was. Those -- well played game and pretty yeah pretty clean for the most part and no good competitive match and guys sucked it up and and finished it this were most pleased. Let him my friend it's. -- -- Yeah he is he's as tough as a two dollar stake. Angles it. -- yeah okay.
