Did Jim Harbaugh quote the genie from Aladdin on Wednesday?

New, comments

49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has some of the most random quotations you'll ever see. It's possible he recently quoted the genie from Aladdin!

The San Francisco 49ers completed their first three days of OTAs, and thus far things seem to be going well. While it's nice to get on-field action, this also means we get to hear more from head coach Jim Harbaugh. Coach Harbaugh can be an absolute wordsmith, and we may have had an under-the-radar example on Wednesday!

NN user Paydirt1946 spotted this in the transcript I posted on Wednesday. Coach Harbaugh said the following:

But, a lot of exciting new players and feel like we’ve got a lot of fire power in our corner. Feel like we’ve got a lot of ammunition in our camp.

As Paydirt1946 pointed out, this correlates fairly well with the second verse of the genie's song from Aladdin:

You've got some power in your corner now!
Some heavy ammunition in your camp!

It's possible this is a coincidence. Coach Harbaugh has six kids, three of which are young enough to be watching Aladdin. Maybe he found himself watching Aladdin this offseason, and it just slipped into his comments. Whether it was intentional or not, it's one more Harbaugh "Easter Egg". He's pretty much the most entertaining coach in the NFL.

The lyrics in question come at the 20 second mark of this video.
