Would John Harbaugh watch Super Bowl with Jim? 'Absolutely not'

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

NEW ORLEANS -- Ravens coach John Harbaugh seems legitimately torn up about beating his brother on the NFL's biggest stage. He's happy about winning Super Bowl XLVII, of course, but he's also clearly bummed about handing 49ers coach and brother Jim the most painful of losses in the process.

So it's an absolute guarantee he'll never re-watch the game with his brother.

"No, I don't ever think we will ever watch that game together," John Harbaugh said Monday. "Absolutely not."

That's not a surprise, of course. The only real surprise is that someone actually asked that question.

The scene following Jim Harbaugh's loss -- and this is true for any loss -- involved red eyes, upset families and a downtrodden football team.

You can learn from losses. That's one of the biggest coaching maxims in football. And it's a guarantee Jim Harbaugh will learn from this one.

But that doesn't mean he wants to re-watch the most brutal loss of his young coaching career with the guy who beat him, even if it's his brother.
