"Gobble Gobble Turkey:" Jim Harbaugh Calls Someone a Jive Turkey to Defend Alex Smith

Alex Smith had the game manager-ing-y-er-est game ever last night as the 49ers beat the Cardinals, 24-3, in Arizona. Smith completed 18 of 19 passes for 232  yards and 3 touchdowns. After the game, Niners coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about Smith’s confidence issues. His answer was for the birds.

Reporter: “You think this performance tonight put any confidence issues to rest?”

Jim Harbaugh: “I don’t think there was ever a question there. I think its just a lot of gobble gobble turkey. You know?”

Reporter: “What is gobble gobble turkey?”

Jim Harbaugh: “Just gobble, gobble, gobble turkey from jive turkey gobblers. You know. It paints a pretty good picture. He’s a very confident guy.”

Did Jim Harbaugh just call me a jive turkey? That’s not cool so close to Thanksgiving. I hope that this – the latest in a long line of Harbaugh insanity – catches on. “Turkey Jim Harbaugh” could have some legs. I wonder if he recently watched Thankskilling?
