Fantasy Tip: It is unlikely the NFL will come down on Browner with a suspension, although a modest fine would not be surprising.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday, Feb. 5, that he has great respect for QB Alex Smith, but indicated that the team owes him no special favors when it comes to where he's playing next season. Smith wants to return to a starting role, and the team could give him a fresh start by trading or releasing him; however, Harbaugh said that would be a business decision, not a personal one. "I don't think any player has those wishes granted when they're under contract," Harbaugh said when asked whether Smith had earned additional consideration. "And everything's different and every scenario is unique. Certainly something that we're not going to delve into and get into specifics at this point."

49ers | Jim Harbaugh critical of referees

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 04:49:21 -0800

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh criticized the officials for what he believed was a pivotal non-call in the final minutes of Super Bowl XLVII. Officials determined Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith's contact with WR Michael Crabtree was incidental, but Harbaugh insisted a penalty should have been called. "I really want to handle this with class and grace, and we had several opportunities in this game," said Harbaugh. "We didn't play our best game, and the Ravens made a lot of plays and battled back. They competed to win. But there's no question in my mind that there was a pass interference - and then a hold on Crabtree on the last one." Harbaugh would later criticize the officiating again during his postgame news conference. "I realize I'm on the side of the 49ers," Harbaugh said. "I'm the coach of the 49ers - there is some bias there. But I wouldn't be bringing it up unless it was obvious. But that's not the way (the refs) saw it. That's the only reason I bring it up."
