NEW ORLEANS — At Monday’s Super Bowl press conference, the 49ers coach was asked a question from a reporter who obviously had known Harbaugh a long time.
“Do you still hold onto negative things as much now as when you were a player?”
Harbaugh was a quarterback at Michigan and then played the position for 15 years in the NFL.
Harbaugh didn’t answer immediately. You could see the wheels turning and he was actually working hard on answering the question truthfully.
Finally, he did.
“Possibly,” Harbaugh said.
Usually, he’ll give you or two or three sentences that won’t reveal much, and here was one word that revealed so much.
If ever a “possibly” could be interpreted as a yes, this was it.
