The Baltimore Ravens are your Super Bowl XLVII champions, and the offseason has truly started for every team in the league. Now, we can stop hearing about the "Harbowl," or the "SuperBaugh," or whatever (not) clever name was given to the occasion. But that doesn't mean the whole head coaching brothers dynamic wasn't fascinating.
One interesting aspect of the outcome of the game is how both coaches feel about the other. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is obviously upset, not just over the loss, but over the officiating, as most of what he had to say after the game revolved around the non-call of holding on Michael Crabtree.
John Harbaugh, on the other hand, is enjoying the victory, but he's struggling with it. John told Peter King that he is "totally deastated" for his brother, Jim. In another quote, via NFL.com, John says that dealing with the reality of having denied his brother a Super Bowl rind is "a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be. It's very painful."
Both Harbaugh brothers lost in the championship round last year, with the 49ers falling to the New York Giants and the Ravens falling to the New England Patriots. Clearly, both brothers getting a shot at the Super Bowl was preferable this time around, but it's obvious that neither coach liked the whole "denying his brother" aspect of the situation.
