Former NFL running back Brandon Jacobs took to the radio and went on a rant about former San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh Thursday.
Saturday afternoon, Harbaugh took the high road in response to Jacobs’ Biblical rant, giving some “Biblical advice” of his own to his former player. Jacobs had said Harbaugh’s success in San Francisco should be credited to the assistant coaches, and claimed Harbaugh’s play calling was responsible for “getting people hurt.” Jacobs also went on to say Harbaugh “didn’t know what he was doing” as a head coach.
Biblical advice for @gatorboyrb Let all bitterness & wrath & anger & clamor & slander be put away from you, along with all malice.

It’s tough for Jacobs, a two-time Super Bowl winner, to back up his pretty large claim.
In his coaching career, Harbaugh has turned around multiple college programs, as well as a professional franchise, in almost record time.
As Stanford’s coach, Harbaugh seemingly brought the Cardinal back from the dead. He led Stanford to an Orange Bowl victory in 2011, and he guided quarterback Andrew Luck to becoming the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Harbaugh did the same in San Francisco, as he took the 49ers to a Super Bowl berth in just his second season.
Considering his last two coaching gigs, Harbaugh is right on track at Michigan. In only two years in Ann Arbor, Harbaugh has led the Wolverines to two 10-win seasons.
Harbaugh could’ve dropped some statistics on Jacobs. He opted for the theological approach instead.
