49ers notes: Harbaugh supports ‘NaVorro Bowman rule’

NaVorro Bowman became the unofficial face of the new rule proposal when, during the NFC Championship Game, he recovered a fumble by Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse at San Francisco’s 1-yard line. Although replays clearly showed Bowman was down by contact with the ball in his possession, Harbaugh was unable to challenge the ruling, and the Seahawks ended up with the ball because it was a non-reviewable play.
