Although the Raiders are considered the favorites to land Jim Harbaugh should he leave San Francisco this off season, the Jets are monitoring his situation as well (Schefter, Nov. 30).

Reports of monitoring?Harbaugh are the first acknowledgement that the Jets are willing to part ways with head coach?Rex Ryan?(Cimini, Nov. 30).

Like Rex Ryan Jim Harbaugh is a polarizing figure, but maybe for extremely different reasons. ?Harbaugh has proven to be a successful coach?and has proven that he is something of a quarterback whisperer. ?Harbuagh?groomed Andrew Luck at Stanford, then took?Alex Smith off the garbage heap before?having?some read-option success with Colin Kaepernick before Kaep has?plummeted from the skies as he's shown an inability to mature as a passer,?seeing ghosts and not understanding how to read his routes or anticipate where the route concept will put a man open.

-49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh on the Giants defense

Uh, really? The Giants are currently ranked last in the NFL in total defense surrendering 404.9 yards and 27.4 points per game. And they haven't looked good doing it.

I guess Harbaugh does not look at the league stat sheets like most of his peers do. The first thing Tom Coughlin does in his weekly prep presser is rattle off the opponent's stats and league rankings.

Jim Harbaugh can get emotional during games. We know that. But last night he acted like a spoiled child in front of the whole world when calls (especially on the final play from scrimmage) didn't go in his favor.

Sometimes, he has a point. On the 49ers' final play from scrimmage, there was a non-call on an incompletion that resulted in San Francisco turning the ball over on downs. Looked like a fairly clean exchange to me. Harbaugh didn't think so, but then again, he didn't have my angle.

It?s not often that opposing head coaches in a Super Bowl are as much of a focus as they are right now.

This week will be an onslaught of quotes, tidbits, anecdotes and facts you could live without....here's some from the Harbaugh brothers you might want to read:

Jim on how much Bo Schembechler as a coach is a role model to him: ?Next to my dad, right on the same level as my dad is Bo Schembechler. He is one of the greatest coaches to ever coach the game. I have also studied Woody Hayes quite extensively. I believe those two men, along with my dad, in my mind, young mind and old mind today, the three coaches that I try most to emulate.?

Jim on the impact the loss to the Giants last year had on this year and the success: ?Life is full of bitter disappointments, and that was one. We were not defeated. You can kill a man but you can?t defeat him, not as long as he has hope. We started from ground zero to approach a new season.?

As the Giants and Niners gear up for what has developed into a classic East Coast-West Coast battle, there has been plenty of back and forth between the two NFC squads.

Carlos Rogers is threatening to perform Victor Cruz's salsa. Jim Harbaugh is taking jabs at the Giants' coaching staff.

But how about what's going to take place on the field. Here's three key match-ups to watch for:

There's been some serious back-and-forth between the 49ers and Giants this week, but the brunt of it has come from the coaches.

Earlier this week, Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride suggested the Niners defensive linemen "get away with murder" when it comes to holding up offensive lineman.

"They have great players," Gilbride said. '"They're tremendous, they're tough. They have great speed on the outside, Smith is a beast on the inside. He's strong, he does as good a job of grabbing a hold of offensive linemen and allowing those twists to take place. He never gets called for it, so he gets away with murder. That, in conjunction with the ability level they have, makes them as formidable as anybody we go against, and we go against some pretty good ones in Dallas' and Philadelphia's. They're as good as anybody up front."

"It's scary good - scary good....The law of averages say that you're not going to keep getting the breaks, not going to stay at that spot....But if you understand the concept of scary good, then you got a chance. Stay on your toes, keep your guard up, stay paranoid and come out here every day and do what you believe in, which is the preparation."

The rematch of the 2011 NFC Championship Game should serve as a measuring stick for the New York Giants.

Big Blue (3-2) is coming off of a convincing defeat of the Cleveland Browns, while San Francisco (4-1) has allowed all of 3 points in their last two contests, both against New York teams.

The all-times serious between the Giants and 49ers is knotted at 18 wins a piece, though San Fran owns an 11-8 edge in games at Candlestick Park.

Jim Harbaugh has the 49ers rolling. ?After switching shingles from Palo Alto, where he rejuvenated a stale program at Stanford, to Santa Clara to take helm of the sagging 49ers the football world is chirping about its next great coach.

The Niners have lost just once under Harbaugh this season - an OT loss to Dallas - and the once-proud fans of this legendary franchise are now beaming again. They're winning and with Harbaugh around, that could remain the habit.

Only a few days ago, Giants' defensive coordinator, Perry Fewell, was the hottest coaching commodit in the NFL.? Today, he is as cold as they come and almost certain to be walking the halls at TIMEX next season.

First the 49ers bagged Jim Harbaugh from neighboring Stanford.? Then, today, Carolina sent out vibes that San Diego DC Ron Rivera is their choice.

Fewell interviewed with Denver yesterday and was gushing with enthusiasm after the meeting. But, now the Broncos want to speak to John Fox, who was just released by Carolina.? That is not a good sign for Perry....

Perry Fewell may get another shot one day at being a head coach in the NFL. That opportunity, however, will not happen in San Francisco.

The 49ers have hired Jim Harbaugh to be their new head coach. According to USA TODAY, a news conference is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

Harbaugh will reportedly receive $25 million over five years.
