After the 49ers beat down the Jags in London this past Sunday, Donte Hitner described Harbaugh and the 49ers staff as "the most paranoid coaching staff in the NFL."
Some hard evidence backing up this statement was released earlier this week in the form of an awesome mic'd up segment with Harbaugh. If you haven't already seen it, check out the video here at 49ers.com.
Harbaugh's sideline demeanor is focused and serious, but I get an absolute kick out of it. The guy just LOVES winning. The paranoia Hitner was talking about shines through on almost every big play as Harbaugh checks for flags before he even processes the result of the play. Although his occasional outbursts might suggest otherwise, he really does appear to be prepared for almost any scenario.
Harbaugh is a true players coach in that, mentally, he seems to be with his players every step of the way. The guy expends almost as much energy manning the sideline as his players do patrolling the field.
