Harbaugh thanks the Candlestick Park crowd for the win over the Seahawks

After the 49ers were initially being scrutinized by the national media for E-mailing fans on the upcoming game, Jim Harbaugh thanked the fans on Monday afternoon. He indirectly talked about how the plan worked on Sunday.

"I thought [our fan support] was outstanding," Harbaugh said. "It shows what you can do if you put your mind to something. It was great support and a great atmosphere."

The 49ers sent an E-mail which included a guideline to their fans on what to do for the game against the Seahawks. This included instructions to show up before kickoff and when to make noise as well as when to stay silent.

It was an embarrassing move for the fans who already know what to do, but on Sunday, this worked. Candlestick Park was mostly full before the kickoff with fans packing the stands. The stadium was as loud as 127 decibels when the 49ers were playing defense on third down.

Previously, it was noted how someone started doing the wave after Arizona Cardinals DL Calais Campbell was injured in Week 6. This drew some backlash on Twitter from Jed York and several 49ers players after the game when the wave continued as Campbell was being carted off.

Harbaugh continued to praise the fans for giving them a tough atmosphere for the Seattle Seahawks to work with. He hopes to see it continue this way for what could be the final game against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16.

"Our fans are great as they know football," Harbaugh said. "They know what's at stake and it was great to have their support."
