10:26 PM ET 02.01 | For the first time in NFL history, two brothers are opposing each other has head coaches in the Super Bowl, so naturally they're making history in virtually everything they do. Both Jim and John Harbaugh held a joint press conference on Friday, making it the first time in the history of the Super Bowl that opposing head coaches met with the media together. But while they rarely meet each other in their football lives, Jim and John nearly joined the same staff at Stanford back in the day. It's almost disappointing that these guys are acting more like brothers and less like the fierce competitors that they truly are, but what should we have expected? But while both Jim and John, as well as their father, Jack, all are known for their intense competitiveness, the brothers blamed their mother when it came to the person who gets most riled up by competition.
