Video: 49ers Owner Jed York Cautions Against Hard Handshakes

Less than a year after a post-game incident between Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh sent the media into a frenzy, the two teams are set to face each other again this time in San Francisco.

With the incident fresh in the media’s mind, it is hard to not talk about hand shakes.

At a downtown rally on Wednesday, 49ers owner Jed York made light of the jaw-dropping moment as he wrapped up his remarks:  “By all means, when you’re shaking somebody’s hand at the end of the game, don’t do it too hard.”

It’s unlikely that Harbaugh and Schwartz will have another incident this year.  Still, something seems to overtake Harbaugh when it’s time to compete.

It will surely make for a good Sunday Night Football game.
