Jim Harbaugh

Joe Staley doesn’t seem all that pleased with Jim Harbaugh, or perhaps an official (GIF)

Update (10:15 pm): I started the following Q&A with Staley after the game by asking him about the exchange seen below. 

Q: What were you upset about?

Staley: Personal foul penalty on me.

Q: Did you think you had that ball?

Staley: Yeah, I had my hands on it. The guy fell on it and I was trying to pull it out. 

Q: What did you do to get that penalty?

Staley: I told the ref he was terrible at his job. 

Q: In those exact words?

Staley: No. Paraphrasing.


After the Chargers recovered Colin Kaepernick’s fumble in the end zone for a touchdown, cameras caught an exchange on the sideline between Jim Harbaugh and Joe Staley. @LOLKNBR captured their not-so-friendly discussion in GIF form.


I’m not the best lip-reader around, so I’m not sure if this is a similar situation to the recent sideline tantrum from Tom Brady, which led to a few complaints to the FCC from overly sensitive fans. A few fans seemed to think Staley said some naughty things to his head coach, but … well, you know.
