Jim Harbaugh won't trade barbs with Pete Carroll

You would call it sour grapes, except Jim Harbaugh's team won the game.

Instead, it was just puzzling that the day after beating Seattle 13-6, Harbaugh would question the amount of physical play from Seattle's cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman.

Wait? What's that? Laughter? Oh sorry. Just the echo of a Tweet Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin sent Friday.

"Jim said Sherm and BB were playing too rough. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaaahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha"
    -- Doug Baldwin, Oct. 19 via his Twitter account @DougBaldwinJr

Sherman used two adjectives as he was leaving the practice field Monday: outrageous and irrational. Just so happens those two words were part of Harbaugh's statement that was issue via a press release to respond what Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said regarding 49ers lineman Justin Smith.

Carroll also referenced that during his radio show on Monday morning on 710 ESPN Seattle, and by the afternoon, Harbaugh said that he wasn't going to get into a back-and-forth, which is very big of him, considering he was the one who started the discussion by questioning the way an opponent played the day after his team won the game.
