Umm, yeah, you'll see that happen when tiny monkeys fly out of my gigantic behind.
There's no way that Harbaugh keeps Coach Killer around. He'll want to develop his own guy -- not take on somebody's sloppy seconds.
This is all about "messaging" my friends -- and it appears that Harbaugh is very good at it. Where NoWin and Dingleberry didn't have a clue about messaging, Harbaugh obviously does, and he's making great use of those talents.
Exactly. Harbaugh is just being PC and making sure he says good things about Alex so if there is a lockout, we can just resign him. And if there is no lockout, he can go out and get any other QB he wants other than Alex, and he will also have done him a favor by speaking highly of him, which might raise his stock a bit.
cmon man if harbrough wanted to stay on just good terms on alex why is he having multime meetings and saying all these good things
if u remember the interview when he joined the team he was very pecimistic about alex when qb situation was asked he said we look explore our options meaning he wont look inside the orgnization
what im saying is that we may keep alex and we may not but he definitally likes alex at least a little
Read above title my friend: MESSAGING
Let me put in another view: Let's say you want to sell your old POS car. Do you list it as "old POS car, $1000?" No, of course you don't. You list it as "Gently used GREAT LITTLE CAR, $1000."
He isn't doing this to make Smith feel good either. It's a messaging tactic to other teams that the new guy -- who has a pretty good reputation for developing QB's -- sees "something magical" in Alex Smith.
Suddenly -- the guy we couldn't trade for a can of beans and franks six months ago becomes possibly worth of extra draft picks.
Messaging my friends, messaging. That is what we're getting from the new regime.
Quite frankly -- I like it.
We've been hoodwinked for far too long by far too many teams. It's time for a little payback.
