It’s always nice when you’re NFL tickets give you a little extra. But the fans with NFL tickets in San Francisco got a rare view of a contest between two NFL coaches, rather than a brawl between players. We don’t see it often but it’s not all that uncommon to see NFL players take a swing at each other or get involved in a shoving contest. But it is kind of unusual to see two NFL head coaches going at it.
Fans who hung around after the game between the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions got a good look at one of those rare moments as the 49ers Jim Harbaugh and the Lions Jim Schwartz had to be pulled apart after San Francisco gave the Lions a dose of losing for the first time in the 2011 NFL season. Seems like Schwartz was a little too happy about beating Detroit and Schwartz took exception to his enthusiasm.
So is the 49ers Harbaugh a bad winner of the Lions Schwartz a bad loser? Who knows? But it’s a pretty good bet that both coaches ;learned something, and both coaches will get a phone call from the league, and it’s a pretty good bet that it will be a long time before NFL ticket holders get another chance to see something like this again.Eric Drouant
