NFL Team’s Stealth Workout Of Manning
March 29, 2012 by staff
NFL Team’s Stealth Workout Of Manning, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is not a big talker — he once upbraided a reporter who asked him how he felt after a loss by insisting that such concerns were too prevalent in touchy-feely California, and he was not interested.
The former NFL quarterback and current AP Coach of the Year does things his own way — very much under the radar — and it’s certainly worked for him. In his first season with the 49ers, Harbaugh guided the team to a 13-3 record, and a near-Super Bowl appearance.
After the season was over, and with quarterback Alex Smith mulling over the three-year, $24 million contact he had been offered, Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman went to North Carolina on Tuesday, March 13, to watch Peyton Manning throw at his workout headquarters at Duke University.
That the 49ers were one of the teams interested in Manning’s services was not big news, but the way in which Harbaugh and Roman disguised their intentions was very original, and Harbaugh-esque all the way.
