Jim Harbaugh Speaks On Lockout, Training Camp, Colin Kaepernick And ... Ricky Bobby On PFT Live

Yesterday, Jim Harbaugh appeared on Pro Football Talk Live with Mike Florio to discuss many things about the 49ers, the 2011 NFL Draft, the lockout and more. Not a whole lot was revealed in the interview, if anything, but I do love listening to what Harbaugh has to say. He's a very real, driven guy and isn't one to necessarily beat around the bush, which I admire. One thing he talked about that I think is worth noting is the fact that he mentions that the team is preparing two different training camps and getting them ready: one for a full training camp and a more streamlined, reduced camp in the event of an even more prolonged lockout.

He also talked about his emotion that he shows on camera, and how much he gets into things, and noted that ... well, he really doesn't care if the camera is on or not. That tells me he doesn't care if other people think he's a crazy person, the important thing is that he knows he's a crazy person. Or something. Florio brought up the AFC Title game that Harbaugh lost as a player and seemed to pick at old wounds a little, and he expressed his desire to make up for it as a coach, and get that elusive chance to shine in the Super Bowl.

Beyond that, bits about Colin Kaepernick, and of course, playing against his brother, John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens. He called his opponents "faceless, nameless," in that he will show no mercy regardless of who is across for him, which is definitely good to hear.

And of course, you can't beat the Ricky Bobby reference ("If you're not first, you're last"). I'm going to attempt to embed the video after the jump, but again, the link is here.
