YouTube Sunday: Jim Harbaugh Captain Comeback Edition

Since things are pretty quiet right now and I'd imagine a lot of folks are off celebrating Mother's Day (Happy Mother's Day to all your mothers, and the mothers that might be reading NN), I thought we could enjoy a YouTube Sunday. We don't do it often, but once in a while it's worth it.

This particular one was inspired by a link 49erfannm posted in a post earlier this morning. He linked to this video of a Jim Harbaugh commercial from 1996. While Coach Harbaugh might be a solid coach, his acting skills leave a little something to be desired. After the jump we've got a couple more Harbaugh videos

Colts-Steelers AFC Championship Game

In 1995, the Indianapolis Colts earned a wildcard berth with a 9-7 record. They were led by Jim Harbaugh who had earned the nickname Captain Comeback thanks to some wild fourth quarter comebacks. In the playoffs that year his Colts defeated the San Diego Chargers and then knocked off the number one seeded Kansas City Chiefs. The Colts faced the Steelers in that year's AFC title game and came a few finger tips away from what could have been one of the greatest endings in NFL playoff history.

 

Stanford-USC "What's Your Deal?" Game

In 2009 the Stanford Cardinal were back on the rise in the Pac-10 and they highlighted their season with a 55-21 victory over the USC Trojans at the LA Coliseum. In the fourth quarter, Stanford held a 42-21 lead with 10:29 to go. They proceeded to run the ball down the field with ease and take a 48-21 lead with 6:47 to go. Coach Harbaugh then had his boys go for two in what I assume was an attempt to reach 50. The Cardinal would go on to win 55-21.

In the post-game handshake, some words were exchanged and it appeared Pete Carroll was not pleased with Harbaugh's decision to go for two late in the game. The media made a pretty big deal out of it but both guys more or less denied there was any issue between them. In reviewing the film it doesn't seem like quite as big a deal, but I still think Carroll was not pleased about the two point conversion. We'll see if the "rivalry" carries over to the NFL level.
