While the players were busy with practice and final game preparations, General Manager Trent Baalke was able to get in an extended two and a half hour media session and he provided lots of insights into how the team sees their roster moving forward and what he thought of specific positions and how they would be handled. Meanwhile Coach Jim Harbaugh reveals that one of his greatest inspirations in history is former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. From one great leader to another, Jim lets WINston Churchill do the "talking". Coach probably chose him too because his name has WIN in it.
