Browner on Harbaugh’s complaints: “It’s obnoxious”

Published on October 23, 2012 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner isn’t buying it.

Asked about Jim Harbaugh’s comments on Friday, a day after the 49ers 13-6 win over Seattle, Browner wonder what the San Francisco head coach was complaining about.

“It’s obnoxious to me, to be honest,” Browner said. “You know what I’m saying? You won the football game. We play a physical sport. You guys beat us.”

Browner said he played the way he usually plays last Thursday down at Candlestick Park, when asked if he felt he played any differently against San Francisco.

“No, not at all,” Browner said. “I just went out there and did my thing. I didn’t get any penalties called – I thought I played a good game in that aspect.”

Browner was the most penalized player in the league last year, with 19 penalties called on him.

On Friday, Harbaugh questioned if the physical style of play by Browner and fellow Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman were within the rules.

“Yeah, I think that’s just an important thing to address,” Harbaugh told the San Francisco Chronicle on Friday. “I mean, what is this all being defined as? Is it physical play? Is it within the rules? I think that’s the biggest question, is it within the rules what’s happening? We have to ask that question. We have to know what the interpretation is.”

Harbaugh claimed he wasn’t trying to influence the officials for his team’s rematch with Seattle later this year on Dec. 23 at CenturyLink Field.

“Any time you ask me anything about any of the officiating from the game – the previous game or an upcoming game – there’s a way we’ve been instructed to handle that,” Harbaugh told the Sacramento Bee. “And that is to not criticize the officiating and to address any concerns and just anything you want clarification or interpretation about with the officials in New York.”

After being told that Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said he was surprised that Harbaugh felt his receivers were “overwhelmed”, the San Francisco head coach chuckled, according to the report.

“I’m not going to comment on or get paraphrased or let somebody quote somebody else and then have a reaction to it,” Harbaugh told The Bee. “I think you pretty much know, we’re from the sticks-and-stones school approach. Calling us names isn’t going to hurt us.”

Carroll took the high road after practice today.

“I just looked at the film, and I heard about the comments,” Carroll said. “I wanted to see what was the point – and I thought it was very normal game. I thought our guys played hard and tough, and they did, too. And that was it.

“I don’t really know what the reference was about. I just hope that it doesn’t go any farther – like to the league. There’s no need for it to.”
