49ers coach Jim Harbaugh calls CenturyLink the loudest stadium in the NFL

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh isn’t expected to have a conference call with Seattle reporters this week, but he did have a press conference Monday. One of the questions was about CenturyLink Field — of course — and whether or not it was the loudest venue in the NFL.

Coaches don’t often use superlatives, but Harbaugh wasn’t afraid to offer his opinion, as transcribed by the team website.

“There are a lot of loud venues; I wouldn’t want to disrespect any of the loud venues,” he said. “But, I would have to say that that’s the loudest, yes. To my ear, but I’m older. Everything sounds louder to me.”

Along the same lines, Harbaugh was asked if Carolina would serve as a primer, of sorts, heading into Sunday’s NFC championship game.

“Our team’s been in a lot of good primers, been through a lot of situations, been through tough environments, whether it be weather or opposing stadiums,” he said. “This team’s been in a lot of situations. Been everywhere man. Like the Johnny Cash song, ‘We’ve been everywhere man.’ Everywhere. Been in a lot of situations.”

He actually sang that part of the quote (check out the video in the link above, answers starts around the 1:20 mark).

NOTE

— The only injury Harbaugh was asked about Monday was that of Will Tukuafu, who left Sunday’s divisional round game with a left knee injury. Harbaugh said the fullback looked to have had an MRI before the press conference and that more information would be shared later in the week.
