The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football last night largely thanks to the excellent performance of QB Alex Smith. The often maligned quarterback was 18/19 for 232 yards and 3 TDs. After the game, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about Smith's confidence and putting questions about his performances to rest. Harbaugh offered this wisdom:
"I think it's just a lot of gobble, gobble turkey… just gobble, gobble, gobble turkey from jive turkey gobblers. Ya know… it's uhh… that paints a pretty good picture."
My favorite part about this quote from Harbaugh isn't the fact that it sounds like it came from someone on an acid trip, not that he's one holiday ahead of the rest of us in making Thanksgiving jokes, but the fact that he thinks "gobble, gobble turkey" paints a pretty good picture of the criticism facing Alex Smith. It is just so beautifully insane it defies description.
I'm not complaining, I'll take incoherent ramblings over coachspeak any day of the week. Hopefully next week Harbaugh breaks out a "rubber baby buggy bumpers."
