The outspoken leader of the NFC West leaders had some interesting things to say about the psyche of his quarterback, Alex Smith, following his team’s 24-3 win over division rival Arizona on Monday night in the desert.
Harbaugh was asked whether he thought Smith’s confidence had been restored after a strong performance on Monday night.
“I don’t think there was ever a question there,” the coach responded in his postgame news conference. “I think it was a lot of gobble, gobble turkey.”
“What is gobble, gobble turkey?” the astute reporter asked in a hard-hitting follow-up question.
“Just gobble, gobble, gobble turkey from jive-turkey gobblers, ya know? I think that paints a pretty good picture of it. He’s a very confident guy.”
