Harbaugh on keeping 5 pass rushers: "Heck yeah, we're the San Francisco 49ers, we can do whatever we want."

Jim Harbaugh was just a little bit fired up after the 49ers preseason win over the San Diego Chargers.

Jim Harbaugh met with the media after the San Francisco 49ers 41-6 victory over the San Diego Chargers, and he was in one of the happier moods I've ever seen him in. It was only a preseason game, but the 49ers got a lot of good things out of the game, including strong performances from all three backup outside linebackers.

Harbaugh had a lot of great lines after the game, but his best might have been after he was asked if the 49ers would consider keeping five pass rushers. His response?

Heck yeah, we're the San Francisco 49ers, we can do whatever we want.

I think bignerd had the best GIF when I first posted the link to Harbaugh's press conference. He said, I have the press conference right here, and then dropped in this classic:


Harbaugh mentioned several times how fired up he was about the game. He was fired up seeing the players playing 49er football. He was fired up seeing the bubble guys competing and stating their case. The man was absolutely fired up. WOOOO!
