Football fans have to love the rivalry between Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz.
The best thing about this rivalry is the fact that it is between two great coaches and two great teams. Look for the rivalry to continue with a great game between Detroit and San Francisco in 2012.
The media absolutely loves stories like this.
Two great coaches, two great teams—one great rivalry. It's media heaven. Look for the major sports networks to produce stories about this rivalry all week.
Expect interviews and the whole nine yards. The media can't wait for this game.
Fans may get a little sick of the hype, since the media tends to overdo stories like this.
The San Francisco 49ers may not have the craziest fans in the bay area, but the team definitely has great support.
Candlestick Park will be rocking when the 49ers play Detroit. Thanks to its rejuvenated team, San Francisco now has a much louder fanbase than in year's past.
49ers fans love Jim Harbaugh. In the week of this game, it will be clear that the supporters have his back.
Look for a loud crowd with some great signs in this game.
Players try not to get caught up in media frenzies like this, but they will come ready to go for their coaches.
Luckily for them, they each have some of the best hard hitters in the NFL.
The key comparison will be between San Francisco's Patrick Willis and Detroit's Ndamukong Suh. They are two of the best defensive players in the league.
However, who will hit harder? The wait will be worth the outcome.
NFL fans need to circle the day that Detroit travel to San Francisco.
Despite all the hype about the coaches, the real excitement will be on the field. These two teams will be two of the best in the NFL in 2012.
The offenses and defenses can both be elite. Look for a hard-nosed game between these two teams.
Ultimately, it will come down to who makes the least amount of mistakes. People will quickly forget about the rivalry between coaches after watching a great game.
The last thing Jim Harbaugh or Jim Schwartz wants is drama.
These two coaches realize how big this game will be. They will do anything they can to take the attention off themselves.
After a great game, the coaches will make sure there is no drama and be respectful to one other.
Sorry for the disappointment, fans.
