San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh held his usual press conference with 49ers media at Youngstown, Ohio. In preparation for this week's game with the New York Jets, Harbaugh got a familiar topic that every NFL talking head has heard the past three months.

What are Harbaugh's thoughts on Tim Tebow? Harbaugh was unsurprisingly vague on the topic.

You know one thing about the Jets, obviously this season, is them getting QB Tim Tebow. How curious are you to see how they would use Tim Tebow in Sunday's game?

"More than curious. You have to be prepared for it. That's our job."

At this point, the implementation of Tebow in the Jets offense has been a bit underwhelming. He's thrown the ball zero times, rushed eight times for 33 yards (although one of those carries came off a 22 yard scramble, which brings his total down to seven carries for 11 yards), and this was the result when he tried to go out and catch a football. Still, it'll be curious how they utilize him against a possibly fired up 49ers defense.

The 49ers are staying on the Eastern side of the country during their two week stretch away from the West Coast. San Francisco lost to Minnesota last week and will take on the Jets this coming Sunday.
