Jim Harbaugh's antics following the San Francisco 49ers win over the Lions were seen as over-the-top by Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz, and it caused a bit of a skirmish after the game. Harbaugh danced around, untucked his shirt and celebrated wildly as he headed to midfield for the postgame handshake, concluding the theatrics with an exaggerated hand-slap for Schwartz.
Following the handshake, Schwartz and Harbaugh got into a bit of a tussle, with the Lions head coach letting the 49ers head coach know he didn't appreciate the antics. Postgame handshakes are meant to be civil, and are a prim and proper thing in the NFL.
But was Harbaugh over-the-top? Should Schwartz have been mad? Remember, Schwartz has his own postgame celebration -- the big fist-pump -- and it even has its own fan page.
Boys will be boys and after an emotional game, tensions were high. It's not too big of a surprise that Schwartz took exception to Harbaugh's antics.
