Matt & Mindi: Jim Harbaugh has been a star this week
Yeah committee got here at New Orleans on the banks of the Mississippi -- the 49ers are getting ready to take part in Super Bowl 47 and once again -- -- brought here. But his eyes and he they would like to congratulate the 49ers nineteen -- New Orleans at the Super Bowl and hopefully bring back their six. Trophy you a lot of activity picking up here on the waterfront they're getting ready to bring the Roman numerals down. The sidewalk here fireworks are expected so I'm actually here in -- Yeah and Thursday means that it was the final day that the players vote to the media zone -- governing meaning they'll be. Yeah natives there just aren't allowed to -- -- and our way or Friday morning a joint press conference. Jim Harbaugh John Harbaugh should be entertaining because Jim Harbaugh has -- star. And I as Super Bowl he's been. He's been a joy to work with the added there -- that yesterday on Wednesday. -- milled around the room and when he wasn't even scheduled to be in there -- all the players were available and talking and chatting -- -- I think he's had a really good time. Yeah I think it's hard not to enjoy yourself down here or does the atmosphere everything that brings of course the player that -- the biggest coverage today for negative reasons however is Chris Coleman the defensive back and I had a good time not having to get -- today he did apologize for his comments he made an end to his credit he's out there for fifteen minutes to answer every question and Stevenson who likes to as a growing experience and we're going -- To move on and as -- would have done continued. Team -- though the agency comedian is an ugly Chris -- for us as well and and it's not a native -- be positive thinking they can bring a positive spin to his community and everything that brings everybody else. Yeah you know -- I'm gonna focus on the on the field stuff right with Chris Palmer yeah they -- as a quarterback doesn't have a short memory that he has to have a short memory he asked -- Put this behind him. And focus on football because clearly it was a distraction Wednesday night. He said he toss and -- and -- lead and then dealing with the it throughout the entire 45 minute media session on Thursday. And it took his focus away from football so he's got to be able to be tough minded. And it. You do all this stuff that he needs to do it after the Super Bowl but for the Super Bowl for the rest of the week preparing for the game began playing in the games he's got to take care of. Business football is absolutely the 49ers and think that supporting him as well but not supporting those statements and I think it can't move on I think they did do a nice job with this today so moving on CD game. Vernon Davis was the subject of my story today mainly because what is strange year for Vernon Davis and he had that used catches he's receiving yards. Fewest touchdowns since 2008 and he's started every game since then of course we know that defense -- approaching him differently but he's been just effective. It and run blocking an -- situations and how do you see him play now is already in Atlanta how do you see him playing out against -- ravens' defense did they -- from the way some the other teams during the regular season did. I think he has potential to have a great game present -- they're. Anyway on to say about everything defense -- -- well I think image around him on the team Penske on Ray Lewis graded him coverage of the linebackers aren't great coverage. -- -- In his later years of his career I don't think he can run I just think that there's a possibility there now there they can't play in the end they're gonna have to do some zone. -- him. It but it's. Again if they pay a lot of attention. To Vernon Davis in and put bracket coverage on and it really paid. It's -- close focus to him then that means they're not generally that means they're not in the -- as much attention to Michael Crabtree and Randy Moss so. The 49ers offense right now is kind of minutes in pick your poison mode. They're great role is -- a really good job. Just. Doing what the team needs whether some running game or whether it's Michael Crabtree in the passing game or last week Vernon Davis in the passing game with a little sprinkle of I'm Randy mosque here and there. And Delanie Walker -- for a catcher to a game at a few other targets. He's been working on his hands a lot yet figures showed today in the -- Emery had to -- had a nice catch in that game. But. Vernon Davis is one of those guys and don't sleep on Vernon Davis -- -- he did -- have a great season production wise the numbers wise. But he has the capability of not have any huge game. Yeah -- Sunday. I think -- Jim Harbaugh said well today and it's simply player meeting everybody talks about the pistol formation that read option. But the 49ers when it doesn't allow them to play eleven on eleven a volley evens the playing field because usually. In most offensive -- to take -- quarterback out of it so that is eleven on ten so in that situation he's solid calling cabernet did. Against Green Bay running for a 181 yards -- Atlanta Falcons had to play eleven on eleven Nevada put a man to account for. Calling -- ready to concede that edge and who had a big day Vernon Davis with a 400 yards receiving touchdowns so. I think that is -- bode well for the 49ers don't have it involves. -- -- I -- just credited to Ron Amadon. The streets of the New Orleans yeah. About the this for an easy -- he was he's wondering. Why did as good as the information come into a blow to us fifty years earlier when he was flying and it is Bryant. And and I mean he would have been the perfect missile. Formation quarterback yet but he isn't he's blown away by how good the 49ers offensive line is how they've done such a good job protecting college -- and out on. Has made phenomenal throws and get -- it's not like they get overly. -- complex and that passing game but. Capturing his -- Lights out and so he says -- -- he believes he's gonna have a good game because the offensive line is getting beat him up bride at hand and give him time to -- Hand. It and he could really use all of those weapons to formulate a good plan. Against the rays. And that's the big key offensive line name by John Madden is the best offensive line and the 2012 regular season had a chance to ask three of those linemen today. What makes sense that you need -- body. Smiled spoke the most I ever heard me that they have so much fun together they love working out together they love. Working out hard because -- so much money between Alex -- his personality just days personnel changes daily that just because of the hard work they've put and they built that chemistry and it doesn't hurt you got some big horses -- friends that you talk about Colin and his excessive doesn't really show I think. Get the offensive line narrowly numbers easy -- how much it -- -- predicated although he can run and that offensive line has been very -- It has you -- Steve told me he said he thought that this is the best offensive line. Not only in football. But in football in a long time really he said -- believe that that 2000 rams' offensive line was phenomenal because he remembers. Kurt Warner and taken those 77 drops under Mike Martz offense and having all. It's time to throw a decent pass routes weren't even developing on those Rams teams until they got twenty yards down the field and in the other lines if he said. Rake up there at the corners are -- the -- slight break up whether with the this these lines. -- 9293. DOS Cowboys -- how those those cats are so a high praise from Ron Amadon. Out of forty niner fans remember how to -- and yeah it's just I don't know. To -- and why do you think Anthony Davis starting right -- -- eating -- body. Is one of the starters guys on the line and he's he's coming off one of his strongest seasons of working out he only wants to get stronger -- be strong like -- And acting at mile -- -- to -- like my you like. -- RAI well John and Jim Harbaugh once against scheduled to speak to the media to gather. On Friday early Friday morning to -- I will be there for that we will bring you another report. Here in New Orleans and Super Bowl 47 counts down we have price -- three more days. It's going to be and -- and the parties -- yeah.
