And Harbaugh has to talk to him like child. It can't possibly be the notion that Harbaugh was serious about that matter in the game, but decided to not be as enthusiastic. I guess Tony Dungy thought all of his players were moronic people by nature when they committed penalties because of the way he talked, which was quite soft spoken.
"See! See!!! I told you he was selfish!!! Look 30 yard penalty! That proves it!!!"
That was my point. Harbaugh didn't seem upset, which is very against his personality. It seemed like he was treating Vernon with kid gloves, because he could lose him. And don't compare that to Dungy who I don't think has ever raised his voice in his entire life. In the biggest game of his career Vernon Davis made two dumb penalties and it didn't see to bother him at all. No "Sorry coach, won't happen again". Even his own teammate later had to bring it up, again speaking to him like a child. It just seems to me he is fragile. Like they can't piss him off and call him on his BS because they are afraid they will completely lose him like Singletary did.
