Under pressure San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has spoken out after his team pulled off a narrow 26-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Speculation has arisen in recent weeks that there is unrest amongst the ranks of the 49ers players.

The win over the Eagles gave the 49ers a 2-2 record and smashed a two game losing streak for the team who last year made it to the NFC Championship game.

The Niners haven't lived up to their potential this season and all eyes have been on Harbaugh to see how he and his team will shape up.

Amongst all the criticism of Harbaugh, former NFL Wide Receiver Deion Sanders was the latest to publicly address the situation in San Francisco.

Sanders who spent a year with the 49ers in 1994 was talking about how the players are coping with the recent situation and he claimed that: "They want him out. They're not on the same page."

But Harbaugh has now had his say on Sanders' quotes and claimed that "Personally, I think that's a bunch of crap,"

Harbaugh is in the fourth year of a five year contract and talks about an extension have been put on hold, but he remains optimistic.

Harbaugh continued to promise that no players or coaches have come to him with concerns and that the team are still together as one unit.

A questionable source

Harbaugh's biggest criticism of the large claims made by Sanders is that he hasn't revealed his source for the information.

Many theorized that it was current 49ers Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree but Sanders took to Twitter on Monday morning to refute those claims.

He tweeted: "To many that this may concern @KingCrab15 is not my source. My sources wears uniforms,suits and ties."

He then followed that up with Tweets such as "I never knew the Truth hurts that much. Sorry San Francisco 49ers fans but it is what it is. Ask yourself why would I lie!"

 Who knows who Sanders source is but if he is correct, could we be seeing the beginning of the end of the Harbaugh era in San Francisco?
