I think its more the style of coaching. He's a micro-managing, precision, very demanding type of coach, a no nonsense sort of guy. If you're stubborn, spoiled or just think your s**t don't stink, you might just have issues with him. There were a lot of guys that hated Bill Parcells too, but if you are starting a team and had the chance to hire him in his prime, would you think twice about it?
Just as with Parcells, even guys who detest Harbaugh, who spent enough time around him, would admit that he did provide a positive influence on their careers overall. I think Jacobs is just a washed-up douchebag, he came in to the 49ers when nobody else really wanted him, including the Giants and acted like he was some sort of blessing sent from heaven. "I'll show these peons how to win." By all accounts, he slacked off, didn't work as hard and b***hed that the practices were unnecessarily intense, basically a veteran stuck in his ways, trying to chill, take it easy and cash a few checks, f**k him.
