Okay, so over the last couple of years our offensive line has been built to be a power rushing o-line and now with the west coast offense returning home whom of our line fits and doesn't fit? I think the clock is ticking on Rachal. Theres no way Harbough puts up with his inconsistency the way Singletary did.
Harbough employs a run heavy type WCO, a run to set up the pass type of O. He likes big, athletic OL and our guys like Staley, Iupati, Baas and A.Davis all fit the bill quite nicely.
Harbough came to SF in large part due to the good fit. That's not just the geographical fit, the fact that he likes Baalke/York. The personnel fits what Harbaugh wants to do.
Our OL is made for coach JH (just needs to get rid of Chilo and get a new RG!)
Our playmakers Gore/VD/Crabs are made for the WCO
the fact that we have 2 big fast playmaking TEs is made for JHs WCO
the fact that JH is a run heavy WCO suites us bringing back Westbrooke which I like
JH ran a 3-4 D at Stanford and I believe SD also and our personnel obviously fits that.
I'm saying it now 9er faithful we've found our guy. This is a good fit because he knows we're close and what we need. I don't want to speak too soon but I think he's going to do it right and do the following:
Obtain a vet QB like Orton/McNabb etc
Draft a QB in either round 1 or 2 to develop behind the vet so we can win now and get a future franchise QB
Sign a big time FA either a passrusher or a CB then draft the other
Draft a diamond in the rough RG in round 3 or 4 that will start immediately over garbage Rachal
Retain the services of Spikes/Franklin so our stout run D can stay together. Convert Clements to Saftey where he belongs
Retain Westbrooke and finally share the backfield with Gore and not run him into the ground.
Commonsense I mean Jim Harbough has arrived my friends.
