In Jim Harbaugh, Seattle has a true sports nemesis - Blog -
I laughed when Golden Tate told "Bob and Groz" he wouldn't mind putting a dent in Jim Harbaugh.

Back in December, when Steven Jackson became just the 26th member of the 10,000-yard club, my reaction was somewhat celebratory, but mostly, I was just depressed.
