Jim Harbaugh on Deion Sanders report: 'Personally, I think that's a bunch of crap'

49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about the locker room issues discussed on NFL Network Sunday morning and evening.

Well, Jim Harbaugh made his point pretty clear on Monday. During his day-after press conference, Coach Harbaugh had a chance to address the various rumors Ian Rapoport, Deion Sanders and Trent Dilfer all discussed Sunday and Monday. And he was pretty specific in how he felt about the reports.

Deion Sanders said on Sunday night, the players were not down with Coach Harbaugh, and wanted him out. To that, Jim Harbaugh said, "Personally, I think that's a bunch of crap." He said that if somebody has a good story to tell, they want to put their name on it. I think in a perfect world that would be the case, but it's safe to say that's not quite how things generally work. We live in a world of anonymous sources, so it is not surprising this keeps percolating.

Coach Harbaugh was asked about Trent Dilfer describing the locker room as toxic. He said that he has not seen Trent or Deion around the facility lately. Again, this is more just brushing this to the side since everything does not need to be heard in the locker room. Nonetheless, Jim Harbaugh was ready to just move on from this. He said his relationship with Trent Baalke and Jed York is very good, and everybody is on the same page and focused on this year.

If the 49ers beat the Chiefs this weekend, I'd imagine this dies for now. If the 49ers lose some games, it pops back up. It's just a cycle to go through, and the beat goes on.
