Seattle Seahawks stars hatred of Jim Harbaugh is revealed

Seattle Seahawks duo Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin are thick as thieves in the Seahawks locker room.

The cornerback and wide receiver became best friends during their time in college at Stanford together, both originally being wide receivers, and are still to this day as teammates at the Seahawks.

Harbaugh Hate

And their is something else that the two have in common, a shared hatred of their former college head coach Jim Harbaugh, who is now in charge of fierce rivals the 49ers.

It was Thursday Night Football game analyst Cris Collinsworth who revealed the story behind the pair's feud with Harbaugh during the Seahawks romping win over San Francisco last week.

Blame Jim

Apparently, Sherman and Baldwin still harbor a big grudge against their former Cardinal coach for their respective NFL Draft slides in 2011. The pair feel it was Harbaugh's fault for their draft drops three years ago.

“[Sherman] still is a little bitter — he and Doug Baldwin both,” said Collinsworth, who had met with Sherman the night before, on Thursday.

“The rumor was that Jim Harbaugh didn’t exactly give them high praise at Stanford when he was their coach and the pro scouts came calling. And these guys never forgot it, so this game’s always been a little bit personal for them.”

If this is all true then Sherman and Baldwin must be bathing in the schadenfreude as the 49ers look a shadow of their former selves.
