Many of you have wondered to what extent Jim Harbaugh contributes to the X’s and O’s of the 49ers offense.
I asked Anthony Dixon yesterday in the locker room if he could give any insight on the subject, and here’s what he said.
Q: Does Harbaugh draw up plays for the offense?
DIXON: Sometimes he just makes stuff up in the room. Like, for instance, I went the wrong way on a play one time and we drew a play off that.
Coach Harbaugh was like, “Ok, that’s the wrong thing, but we like that. Let’s do it like that.”
Next thing you know we had this play, and every time we ran it, he was like, “A.D.!”
I was like, “players make plays!”
