Harbaughs Vs. Baldwins: Which Pair Of Siblings Stand Out?

Talent is a rare and fickle thing. For even one person in your family to be world-class at anything is unlikely. But for two people who share the same parents to be famous? That’s downright silly. And yet here we are in a world full of Arquettes, Hasselbecks, and Williams. So when two brothers coach teams to the Super Bowl, it makes us wonder: who are the better uber-siblings: the Harbaughs or the Baldwins? Let’s go to the tape:

Harbaughs

Baldwins

Well, considering that John and Jim are headed to the Super Bowl, we'll say them. Also, we don't know if they have any other siblings. BEST FAMILY MEMBERS Alec and uh...cripes. Who's number 2? Billy? Stephen? Definitely not Daniel, in any case.
Jim and John. Good, healthy, American names. BETTER NAMES "(Bleep!) you, that's my name!" And the other name doesn't matter. It could be Aloysius and this one would win.
Heavens yes. Poor Frank Gore. THROWS TEMPER TANTRUMS? Without a doubt. Poor Alec Baldwin's daughter.
Leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl with a joyless Joe Flacco. NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE ARGUABLY LESS FAMOUS BROTHER Uh, "being intimate" with Cindy Crawford('s body double) in "Fair Game".
"Jive turkeys not welcome in the 49ers locker room." - Jim Harbaugh Famous Quote? "There are people who would rather choke than go see my movies. They write me letters all the time." - Alec Baldwin
Well, one will be a Super Bowl champ next week. MOST NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT? Alec is one of the few bankable SNL hosts, which is almost harder than winning a Super Bowl.
Naw... ONE OF THEM GETS TO HANG OUT WITH TINA FEY? Yeah!

The winner is
