12:23 PM ET 12.04 | Postgame handshakes were once again a story last weekend when Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had an issue at the end of Sunday's game. The two went to shake hands and Harbaugh pulled Tomlin back into him and said something. Harbaugh said on Tuesday that there was nothing extra to the handshake. "Nothing unusual other than I was kind of in a hurry," Harbaugh said.

Chippy game. Chippy handshake. Nothing new here unless he asked Tomlin if he liked gladiator movies.

Harbaugh whines on for two days because he lost a game.

Tomlin says nothing

One has class...one has no class...pretty simple to figure out. No doubt Harbaugh said something ignorant.

Both Harbaughs are bad winners and bad losers. Imagine if Tomlin was a POS like a Harbaugh and came running up in his excitement , slapping Harbaugh on the back.

What did Tomlin do? Shook his hand and said good game...

Another re-thread.

Really, FN, consider going back a couple of pages to make sure the same thread re-written by a different source wasn't posted earlier.

Yeah, you're right. I'll try to be more compassionate in the future.

Now, what do we hear about the Jets quarterback situation? Any news on that the last few weeks?

Tomlin would have beaten wimp Harbaugh into the turfif any words were exchanges. Soft John would have gotten his butt whipped good.

I kind of feel bad for RGIII. An angry Ravens team isn't to be taken lightly. The Steelers showed the blueprint... don't try to get fancy. Just blitz the hell out of him.

Not that it's gonna hurt too bad. With the Giants giving it away and 3 very winnable games after Baltimore, I bet they're playing next month anyway.

That story just won't die until Namath has his say in the matter. Again.

I don't doubt it. Does Tebow even drink?

i guess you didn't actually...you know...READ the article when Harbaugh said:

"Nothing unusual other than I was kind of in a hurry,"

this is a story made up by the MEDIA, period.

i guess you also missed the point where Harbs said:

"Nothing unusual other than I was kind of in a hurry,"

made up story by the MEDIA...THAT'S IT.

and are you that stupid to see the story regurgitated on fannation 2 days in a row and think that Harbs is saying something again when he never said anything in the first place?!

wow, just...wow.

Except...it was Tomlin who said that. Harbaugh's saying nothing.
Watch the video...Harbaugh starts with "Congratulations"...Tomlin shakes his hand, says "Good job", then runs off. Harbaugh yells "Hey! Hey!", runs a couple of steps, yells something unintelligible at Tomlin....and that's it.

Why bother making crap up defending Harbaugh...he was pissed off and embarrassed to lose at home against a team playing mostly 2nd stringers led by a 38 year old 3rd stringer. He's a suck...as you are as well, obviously.

You're the one that seems to be in infantile tantrum mode.

All I said is the both Harbaughs are poor winner and losers...it's the truth.

Get over it...
