I see what you mean, but when they say we aren't a "stats team," it's more about not deviating from the gameplan for the sake of stats. But if, by sending an e-mail to review a play, it gets your prized QB into the NFL record-books and increased respect throughout the media/league, then by all means. Harbaugh doesn't want his players to be selfish and not be team players, but if there's a chance to be positively recognized (records, Pro Bowls, etc.), then he wants his players to be seen as such.
It's especially important for a guy like Alex Smith, who is consistently kicked whenever he's "down."
