The San Francisco 49ers' 2014 NFL season has been rife with drama since the get-go. Reports have been surfacing all campaign long details frustrations in the locker room with head coach Jim Harbaugh's management style.
However, 49ers legend Roger Craig isn't buying the anonymous critics' line of thinking, calling it "a bunch of crap," per Daniel Brown of the San Jose Mercury News.
"There is a code of respect for your team, for your organization,'' Craig said on Friday. "People tend to forget, he changed our whole culture and got us winning again. Three straight NFC Championship games. A stadium got built because of what he did."
Craig wasn't asked his opinion in a former setting either. Seeing Harbaugh bombarded with criticism from both former 49ers players and NFL analysts prompted Craig to contact the Bay Area News Group on his own volition.
"I'd be mad as hell if someone was talking about my coach like that,'' Craig said. "He hasn't lost his focus on this team, trust me. That's not in his character. That's not in his DNA. People are taking their shots, but they shouldn't make assumptions when they don't really know what's going on in the locker room."
