First the good news. The San Francisco 49ers handed the Detroint Lions their first loss of the season. That knocks them back to the field a bit and if the Bears can beat the Vikings today, it helps them keep pace with the Lions, who at this moment are in the Wild Card race.
Now to the funny news. Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim Harbaugh is the head coach of the 49ers. He was so jacked up after the game, that his postgame handshake with Lions head coach Jim Schwartz didn’t go too well. See for yourself:
You can kind of read Schwartz’s lips saying “What the F**k was that?” and then going after Harbaugh. Harbaugh replies with a “Get outta my face” and then chaos ensues. I think Schwartz was just cheesed off because Harbaugh was showing him up a bit. Either that or he didn’t finish the process of the handshake.
Either way, good news for the Bears as the Lions come back down to earth.
Can you imagine Lovie Smith getting into a fight with another coach? I think you’ve got to watch out for those soft spoken guys – they’ll fight dirty.
