SANTA CLARA – Jim Harbaugh spoke to Bay Area reporters Friday afternoon. Here’s what he said about Colin Kaepernick.
Q: Are you concerned about of all the players on your team who have been under investigation recently?
HARBAUGH: It’s like a parent does. Do you worry? Do you think about it a lot? Yes. It’s the same thing you tell your own kids – there are consequences for all of our actions – good or bad. In some instances, keep in mind this: There sometimes are two sides to stories. I often see the one side reported in the media, and then it gains incredible speed and attention. The other side still remains to be told. Looking at Colin Kaepernick’s situation, at some point there needs to be a resolution to some of these jump-the-gun, witch-hunt kind of scenario that we’re seeing. Winston Churchill had a great quote – a lie will get halfway around the world before the truth has the chance to put on its pants. At some point there needs to be a resolution to this kind of scenario. The only victim in Colin’s case is Colin’s reputation.
Q: You think nothing will come of his situation?
HARBAUGH: Yes. I’ve seen one side reported, seen the other side and feel very good that there will be a good resolution.
