San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh wants the NFL to take a closer look at the physical play of the Seattle Seahawks defensive secondary in Thursday’s 13-6 win by the Niners.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Harbaugh plans to contact the league office before the teams meet again Dec. 23 in Seattle.
Harbaugh reportedly claimed Seahawks cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman used their hands too much while covering his wide receivers. Niners wideouts were thrown to 14 times, but had six catches for 63 yards.
Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who played for Harbaugh at Stanford, apparently finds the whole thing amusing. He tweeted “Jim said Sherm and BB were playing too rough. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha"
