For the third time in three years, Jim Harbaugh is going to the NFC Championship game Sunday, setting an NFL record for a new head coach.

“We’ve got competitors. Whether it’s on the playground or on the field, you need guys that want to win, and we’ve got them, the best,” Harbaugh said.

The 49ers are now 3-0 in road games with Colin Kaepernick at quarterback and 4-1 in career playoff games.

Absent in the first meeting this year in Seattle, the 49ers have Michael Crabtree healthy to compliment Anquan Boldin in the receiving corps,.

Seattle limited ticket sales to certain states excluding California, making 49ers fans having to go to StubHub or other third-party sites to get tickets.

The maneuver was ineffective judging by the numbers of fans that made the 900-mile trip from the Bay area to Seattle for the NFC Championship game.

Judging by the Seahawks’ attempt to isolate ticket sales, Seattle is already paranoid knowing the 49ers are coming to town with play-off experience on their side and nothing to lose.

As it was in Charlotte, the raucous crowd noise is easily silenced when the scoreboard’s numbers are on your side and can be used as a visual response from being taunted.

Jim Harbaugh and Jed York’s mastery of realigning and reforming the 49ers organization, which was once destined for anonymity under Mike Singletary’s regime, is now quietly challenging the excellence of the Bill Walsh and Edward DeBartolo dynasties of the ‘80’s.

What happens Sunday in Seattle will prove how fast the Harbaugh-York provenance comes to fruition.
