Wanna Know What Daddy Harbaugh Thinks of Colin Kaepernick?

[VIDEO]: Did Jim Harbaugh's dad Jack agree with the decision to draft a young Colin Kaepernick as the San Francisco 49er quarterback of the future?  Well, here's your answer…

In the wake of last Sunday, it's probably no surprise that HBO's Real Sports is digging back into the archives (well, at least their semi-recent archives) to re-air their 2011 segment on the brothers Harbaugh.

With John and Jim set to go head-to-head in Super Bowl XLVII, the implications of the now-christened Har-Bowl is already the guaranteed no. 1 storyline as the Ravens and Niners set to hook up Feb. 3.

And over the next two weeks, you're gonna hear all about the Harbaugh boys' proud parents Jack and Jackie Harbaugh that you can handle.

So why not get the overexposure out of the way right now?

In this web-exclusive extra from their Real Sports segment, patriarch Jack Harbaugh recounts the phone call two years ago when Jim told him about the 49ers plans to draft little-heralded University of Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

What did Jack think?  Well, after 40 years as a college coach, Jack had an immediate reaction to his son's decision.  Check out the video above to find out.

HBO Real Sports airs tonight – Tues., Jan. 22 — at 10 p.m. on HBO.
