Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz says he's seen San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh "a bunch of times" since their altercation last season.
Schwartz ran after Harbaugh in October after the 49ers' coach gave him an exuberant handshake and backslap following San Francisco's victory at Detroit. Schwartz says that's long in the past now, with the Lions preparing to play at San Francisco this Sunday.
Detroit opened the season with a 27-23 victory over the St. Louis Rams, rallying to win on Matthew Stafford's short touchdown pass to Kevin Smith with 10 seconds left. San Francisco beat the Packers in its opener.
Harbaugh refers to it as a "mini controversy" and "completely irrelevant," eager to keep the focus on the players for both teams. Running back Frank Gore insists that everybody has moved forward, especially after a 30-22 season-opening victory Sunday at Green Bay.
