After the Seahawks and 49ers last met, San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said he’d ask the league for guidance on the limits of permissible contact by defensive backs against receivers.
At the time Seahawks coach Pete Carroll chided Harbaugh, who previously had complained about perceived efforts by Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride to work the officials via the media.
More recently, Carroll said he saw nothing wrong with the way his team was playing, and that Harbaugh simply was looking for some help come round two.
“I did go back and look at the film to see what Jim was talking about,” Carroll told reporters via conference call, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area. “And I had trouble seeing why there was a complaint. But the fact that he did, he was just trying to get some help from the officials, I think.”
Harbaugh may not need much help. With cornerback Brandon Browner already serving a four-game suspension and with cornerback Richard Sherman’s appeal hearing set for Friday, there’s a chance the Seahawks could be without both players come Sunday night.
