Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin hasn’t talked to his brother in a while. He’s busy — offensive coordinators in the NFL tend to be this time of year — and so is his brother, who just happens to be the starting center for the San Francisco 49ers.
The last time the two talked was the Friday the Cardinals were in Sarasota, Florida, prior to the Buccaneers game. He did some Facetime with Jonathan Goodwin while sitting on his hotel balcony. Harold Goodwin’s wife and children left today for San Francisco to hang out with the family and attend the game. But this isn’t about hugs for Harold.
“He’s my brother but not this weekend,” Goodwin said. “It’s about business.”
So there will be no discussion this week. He will go up to his brother, a 12-year veteran of the NFL, before the game to say hello, although he is expecting Jonathan to be sitting on the bench, staring into space with his headphones on like he always does to prep for a game. If any conversations would have taken place this week, Harold said he would’ve tried to find out what the 49ers were doing if he could.
“You’ve got to,” Goodwin said. “That’s the nature of the beast. At the end of the day I’ve got a mortgage to pay, so beating him is part of that.”
