    The question is, how would Harbaugh react if the same was done to him? I'd guess he wouldn't like it, but it's just a guess.

    He gave him the typical smack on the back that men involved in sporting events do. Players and coaches on the sidelines push, shove, chest bump, ass smack, and do a host of other physically aggressive gestures towards each other out of excitement during sporting events.

    This situation was no different. The guy gave him a little "good game" type smack on the back with a little added shove.

    It was men being men, and nothing more.

    I disagree, generally the post-game handshake between NFL coaches is fairly reserved.

    I get that he was pumped up, but I agree with the last poster. There seems to be an unwritten rule regarding post-game handshakes between coaches.

    From hat I understand, it wasn't the handshake or the slap on the back, which mighta been a liitle too hard on purpose, but rather something that was said. Apparently Harbaugh said something that was less than flattery to Schwartz, who wasn't expecting it. Don't know what was said or if any of htis is true, but it's already been blown way out of proportion to any possible impact going forward. Dosn't mean squat.

    Schwartz is a very uptight person. Maybe he needs to take a strong laxative and "release" all of that pressure in his system.

    Lightnen up, Schwartz. You got a handshake, a slap on the back, and maybe Harbaugh said a curse word. Quit being a crybaby. THERE'S NO CRYING IN FOOTBALL!
