The NFL Needs to Fine Jim Harbaugh for his Childish Antics

How many times has San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh thrown a tantrum on the sidelines that can only be compared to a six year old child? The answer is countless. He has shown on multiple occasions that he does not have the maturity to be a head coach in this league.

During a victory over the Atlanta Falcons, Harbaugh freaked out after a call was not overturned late in the fourth quarter. Yes, it was a bad call, but sometimes things don’t go your way and you have to deal with it. Harbaugh is the kind of coach the NFL does not need. There are enough divas in the league already, we don’t need a coach crying on the sidelines for every little thing that goes wrong.

Harbaugh came under fire earlier in the season when he was accused of taunting the Seattle Seahawks players after a week seven victory. Players said they saw him, but nothing came of it. In addition, even though the 49ers won, he still criticized the way the Seahawks corners were playing too physical and contacting his receivers down the field. He needs to let it go. If he continues to act this way, the NFL needs to fine him until he makes a change.

Personally, I don’t think he is that good of a coach. He inherited a team loaded with talent and it was almost impossible for him to fail as a coach. In the end, Harbaugh gets the last laugh because he is headed to the Super Bowl and 30 other NFL teams will be watching from the couch. I guess kids will learn a valuable lesson, if you cry long enough you are going to get rewarded with a trip to Super Bowl. Just kidding kids, Harbaugh is not a role model.
