The 49ers are coming off a big win over the Philadelphia Eagles to push their record to 2-2 on the season, but comments from former 49ers Deion Sanders and Trent Dilfer are casting a pall over the week.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh dismissed the claims in his press conference on Monday, saying reports of locker room unrest from unnamed sources are "a bunch of crap."
Later Monday, offensive lineman Alex Boone and safety Antoine Bethea hit the radio to support their head coach.
Alex Boone on 95.7 The Game:
In our locker room, we do what we do. We don't listen to that nonsense.
If you're not in our locker room, keep our name out of your mouth. How about that?
Last I checked I was in the locker room and it was all smiles, and everybody was happy. Nobody was saying we want him out. I know for a fact everybody loves Harbaugh.
He’s a great guy, he's a great coach. How could you not want to win for a guy that wears cleats during a game? Have you not seen that guy’s energy. He’s exciting 24/7. You’ve got to love playing for a guy like that. That’s what’s football is all about.
Antoine Bethea on CBS Sports Radio:
"Nah, man we're a family and it's all about the guys in that locker room, and that's all it's about. Everybody in the locker room is trying to go out there and win. We're a family. Outsiders, we'll let them say what they say."
