The 49ers understandably hoped that the Giants would beat the Packers on Sunday, so that the 49ers could host the NFC title game.
But 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh apparently was planning for the Packers to prevail.* His father, Jack, told 790 The Zone in Atlanta that Jim had a project last week for the elder Harbaugh, a former college football coach.
“He sent me some Green Bay Packer tape and I spent a couple hours looking at that,” Jack Harbaugh said.* “Those notes are moot.* We just don’t have anything to do with them.* I haven’t gotten my assignment for this week so we’ll see what happens.”
