Just read the article from the pressdemocrat on tom mortensen, an ex harbaugh QB. I thought it was a great article, and it confirmed the idea that for me the most important position on the field is the coach. The greatest Qb's have always had the greatest coaches. Football is such a strategic game, that it seems impossible for a team to ride just on the talent of their players, let alone the QB.
I don't understand why teams don't go all out and spend money on good coaches, like they do for players. Miami made an unclassy move by waving money in harbaugh's face, but it makes sense. If you have the chance to get a coach that will put together a team that can make a run for a decade or more, it's worth spending the money.
Mortensen said the most reassuring comments i've heard so far on harbuagh. He can coach players up, he has modern, innovative strategy and he's competitive.
i don't think Brady, Rodgers, Favre or even Manning or Montana would've had their success with different coaches.
what is your perception on the importance of the Qb vs the coach?
