08:03 AM ET 07.30 | First-round draft pick A.J. Jenkins has a friend in Jim Harbaugh, who wasn't even scheduled to talk to the media Sunday. But as offensive coordinator Greg Roman was at the podium, Harbaugh sat in the back eating his lunch. When Roman stepped down, Harbaugh stepped forward and launched into a passionate defense of [Jenkins], the subject of some critical comments during the spring sessions. "For those scribes, pundits, so-called experts who have gone as far to say that he's going to be a bust -- just stop," Harbaugh said. "I recommend that. They're making themselves look more clueless than they already did. I'll go on record: A.J. is going to be an outstanding football player."

I don't have any idea, but he's going to be an outstanding football player. Coach said so.

He's the guy they got when they weren't pursuing P. Manning.

Farrier = one that shoes horses. Not to be confused with James Farrior of the Steelers.

A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And no one can talk to a horse of course
That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Jim Harbaugh.

Go right to the source and ask the horse
He'll give you no answers that you'll endorse.
His BS is on a steady course.
Talk to Jim Harbaugh.

Kinda funny, he said the same thing about Alex Smith last year and everybody laughed. He got the 49ers to the NFC championship last year when all the experts didn't think they would make the playoffs. I think he knows more about football than people that spend their lives watching highlights and clips.

This guy is an oustanding coach if he says that we're clueless book it, I somehow get the feeling, if Vince Lombardi let you into his Camp, he would of said nothing, and thanked the press for their consideration in helping him evaluate one of his players! He would have smiled and Walk Away!

This is the same guy that thinks that Randy Moss is going to be his number 1 receiver. Of course, that is only on the routes that Randy choses to run...
