11:36 AM ET 02.09 | John and Jim Harbaugh spoke following the end of Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday after Baltimore defeated San Francisco, 34-31. Jim Harbaugh, coach of the 49ers congratulated his brother John for the Ravens' victory saying, "I'm proud of you" during the postgame handshake. Appearing on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Thursday, John Harbaugh told Letterman the two brothers have not spoken since meeting on the field after Sunday's game. "We have not had a conversation since. We will ? soon," Harbaugh said. Harbaugh told Letterman he wasn't sure when the two would actually talk, but one this is for certain, the Super Bowl winning Harbaugh will not be consoling the Super Bowl losing Harbaugh.

How sad is this. Brother envious, jealous, (or whatever it may be) of brother. They should love, respect and be proud of each other.

How many siblings are in their shoes? Sad, very sad...

Jim is probably holding a grudge and being a poor sport.

Maybe John will call and invite Jim over to look at his Super Bowl ring.

John should offer some advise on time management and red zone play calling.

Jim flew back to the Bay Area on Monday, had a press conference on Tuesday, Tuesday afternoon drove down to Pebble Beach to play in the AT&T. Going into Saturdays round he is in 1st place of the amateurs. In the mean time his brother John has gone on several talk shows and watched a riot break out during their awards ceremony in which a person was killed.

They are both very busy people right now and although the will probably speak next week, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't communicate till they see each other at the combine, and the bad memories have faded away some what.

The reason Peyton Manning did not go to the 49ers or any NFC team was because he didn't want to play against his brother Eli on a regular bases. Every game would be a media circus.

Well, this is newsworthy.

Vegas probably has odds on when they'll speak to each other again.

I heard that the real reason Manning didn't sign with the 49er's is because he dislikes Jim Harbaugh.

I'd bet Ronde Barber did the same for his brother Tiki...

I don't agree!!! IMO, Peyton didn't want to play for a coach that he replaced as QB with the Colts.

I talk to my brother every day, nothing separates us, when we were kids it was us against The World, I will never be too busy not to call or pick up the phone when he calls, that's the way it is, we are blessed!!!

February 9, 2013  01:49 PM ET

I think Jimmy needs a time out.
