NFL: Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh says one of the toughest moments in yesterday's Super Bowl was meeting his brother, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, at midfield after the Ravens' victory.
During a morning news conference in New Orleans, Harbaugh said he and his brother spoke on the field before the game and agreed that the only thing that would have been worse is if either of them or both of them hadn't made it to the Super Bowl. Harbaugh called his brother the best coach in the NFL, and said he's proud of him.
Harbaugh said he didn't think the blackout in the third quarter helped the 49ers. He remarked that the 49ers just outplayed them for a stretch, but he's proud of the Ravens players for their ability to bounce back and secure the win.
