According to current NFL analyst and former San Francisco 49ers player CB Deion Sanders, he says the players want head coach Jim Harbaugh out. Sanders said, “They want him out. They’re not on the same page.” Sanders who is arguably the best cover corner to ever play the game while being one of only two 49ers players to be named Defensive Player of the Year, went on to say, “I really want to know if they’re really playing for the head coach. I got a question with that. Are you really down with your head coach, San Francisco 49ers? Because the way it looks and what I’m hearing, you’re really not down for your head coach. And that’s a problem.”

Sanders went on to say that the power of networking holds some truth into the rumors. “They really got some problems that we hear rumblings. We all know people inside locker rooms,” Sanders said. Sanders has close ties to WR Michael Crabtree who not only helped him develop his game before the NFL draft back in 2009 but also brought the great WR Jerry Rice in to give him some tips at his football school Prime U.

With the 49ers trying to claw their way back atop the NFL ranks, they will have to deal with the Harbaugh rumors throughout the season as it’s not going away anytime soon.
