Jim Harbaugh thinks home field advantage “could be improved”


The support of a big crowd has been a big factor for the 49ers this season.

Unfortunately, they might have had more vocal support at their road opener in Dallas than in the first game at new Levi’s Stadium.

Coach Jim Harbaugh clearly wasn’t thrilled by the noise generated by his home fans during Sunday night’s loss to the Bears.

“I noticed at times it was good and loud, yeah,” the 49ers coach said, via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “And other times it could be improved.”

Of course, the same could be said of his team, which coughed up a 17-0 lead to lose in the debut game at the Field of Jeans.

Now they have to try to fix things on the road at Arizona Sunday, where the 49ers have also drawn a good following.

“We had a great crowd for our Monday night game in the opener [against the Chargers],” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “Historically, visiting teams have had access to tickets here. And hopefully our guys are keeping theirs.”

Of course, Levi’s Stadium is also expensive enough that hitting the road might be a cheaper alternative for some 49ers fans.
