The rumblings in San Francisco are getting louder, and as the losses pile up, the fingers pointed at Jim Harbaugh add up as well.
According to NFL.com, 49ers veterans are not happy with Jim Harbaugh, and “feel like he treats them like children.”
“The same thing I was hearing last year is the same thing I was hearing as the season was starting — the same thing I’m hearing now,” Rapoport told NFL Media’s Rich Eisen. “And some of it is from losing, but I’m told especially the veterans are grumbling already about Jim Harbaugh, and the voices are getting louder and louder.”
Said Rapoport: “Some of the complaints include the fact that he kind of treats them like children. In fact, on planes, I’m told, they’re not allowed to play music, they’re not allowed to play cards. Small things, but these are the things that really can rankle players, even though the veterans do get to sit in first class.”
Harbaugh reportedly went out of his way to appease his players before the Dallas game, but guys are not happy about the direction of the ball club.
