You won't just be the ravens vs the 49ers at Sunday's Super Bowl -- -- brother vs brother.
That's right the competing head coaches -- brother John and Jim Harbaugh so how are the parents going to handle the big family competition.
Sportscaster Jim Gray spoke with the coach's father Jack Harbaugh.
This like for you and your wife Jacqui to see your two sons coaching in the Super Bowl we're still trying to feel our way through it I don't think it's really -- -- -- -- exactly.
You know what impact this has.
On our family and what impact it has on us I mean just the stage to stage is just so big.
You know we're still trying to.
Find out what are places we have come to this conclusion the -- you see a -- Jackie Harbaugh the better the world would be.
-- this stage is not about us it's about those 106 football players are gonna compete Sunday night.
Those two great coaching staffs are going to be.
Competing against each other it's about them it's about their teams get a team on the West Coast to -- -- -- have great organizations great coaching staff.
Great men humble man competing in this in this great sport great great great pride but you know what Jim it's no different.
And when they were when they came home -- they -- dad.
I made her junior high school football team and it.
Smile on their face and he hugged him I'm so proud of him.
Coordination dead on the starting whatever our high school basketball team ball.
-- -- the emotions you feel any different sets the stage is bigger and there's more people to share with what is apparent.
The emotions are all the same.
Are -- going to be handling the very different emotions at the end of this game one of your sons will be hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy and will be a champion for life.
Your other son will be back in the locker room trying to figure out what went wrong with perhaps this once in a lifetime opportunity.
I don't get and we had a little bit of a blueprint we saw a little bit last year face giving when they play the game I know the stage is bigger but.
For us every game is that you have the same emotions -- high emotions.
And I think our first thought will be you know you for that one -- that there.
It came up a little bit short -- agony -- defeat type thing that we've all heard since Weaver just just very very young.
But we'll take time to to go and and share or did the thrill of victory -- with with the other side.
And it would with -- cool emotions.
Jim -- joins us -- your -- a hall of super all of number 47.
Jim I'm did instead the father of the two could just happen to mention where he would be a watch in the game and wears his wife watching him they in New Orleans and where they -- -- sinner than back home.
-- there in New Orleans they will be in the stadium there will be watching and Jack Harbaugh said his wife Jackie gets.
Pretty animated during the game and that a lot of times she will.
From time to time even scream at the screen so I guess shall be streaming -- the game but it's going to be a difficult day for them because.
You're gonna -- -- share on one hand when one team scores but you're gonna feel bad on the other hand so it's it's really a very very unique system situation.
Really devastating like this in sports -- other than maybe when the Williams sisters of Venus and Serena have played -- -- Grand Slam championships and it's.
Very difficult on on the mother and a father.
I decided it's better for the parents to have this a huge blow out for one of the two teams Florida have a -- cliff hanger where it's a -- -- Heartbreak backing Amy and I can't say I wish I'd rather five of the parents say -- what -- you prefer.
Well the mother Jackie has petitioned Roger -- -- And asked that the game be allowed to end and a tie which is against all of the rules and she has not gotten a response from the commissioner but the I would think that maybe some of the strain would be taken off of the -- lot of -- -- the country won't want that the country wants to see it close game.
Now the last time they met which was Thanksgiving -- 2011 it was a ravens victory right yes it was on Thanksgiving.
And the teams changed dramatically since then.
Yes they have in fact that they changed dramatically during the season and -- both of these head coaches.
Their father Jack was a coach for forty years and high school and college.
And -- he knows -- tough decisions are well John Harbaugh fire his offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.
Right toward the middle and end of the season they had lost three games in a row and since that time.
Joseph Flacco and the ravens have done really really well and of course Alex Smith the starting quarterback of the 49ers had a concussion a head injury and he got replaced.
Now by -- cap for neck and then when Smith got well he decided to stay with cabernet can -- for -- -- Been nothing short of sensational they'll be starting just his tenth game as a -- but both of those moves -- an awful lot of guts and they both turned out and proven to be very right.
Brandon and Justin mentioned what does their father said to Vince Lombardi Trophy and so I must say that there's a -- the Green Bay Packers.
Who won the first a Super Bowl in a blowout against C Kansas City Chiefs -- remember that -- right Jim.
Of course than -- the second one as well.
-- what the second one as well so the fact it didn't go this time but did you -- excited by the -- who's favored the swell weekend that have been more than AS sports -- -- is favored.
Well the odds makers in Las Vegas are saying that the 49ers are three and a half point favorites and the down here you get a feel on the streets that there there seemed to be here on Thursday and we're still some 72 hours three days away from the game.
Right now it seems like -- being overrun by the people from Baltimore it's much closer I'm sure the forty niner fans will arrive as the weekend continues.
Well according had -- look -- -- goes on that said passing made against Denver 31 seconds left that is like seventy yards in the air.
That's that's a tough farm to fight against but whether quarterback for the -- foreigners can run so -- -- good game.
-- -- Should be fine thank -- much.
