The "feud" between Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh is overblown. Everyone is saying so. Emphatically.

It's just a matter of whether you believe them.

Carroll's Seattle Seahawks and Harbaugh's San Francisco 49ers square off here Sunday in the NFC championship game (6:30 p.m. EST, CTV/FOX).

It's the highest-profile showdown yet between these coaches and their teams, clearly now the premier franchises in the NFC, if not the entire NFL.

What's the deal between Carroll and Harbaugh?
