ARLINGTON, Texas — Ahmad Brooks responded in the locker room to Jim Harbaugh’s post-game comments. I’ve always known Brooks to have a dry wit and a subtle sense of humor. This is a good example.
Q: Harbaugh says the team has titanium in the spine in terms of dealing with adversity.
BROOKS: I don’t exactly know what titanium is.
Q: It’s stronger than steel.
BROOKS: Stronger than steel?
BROOKS: Is it stronger than gold?
Q: Gold is soft.
BROOKS: What about solid gold? What about a brick full of gold?
Q: Do you have that in your spine?
BROOKS: Probably so. That means I’m expensive.
