Jim Harbaugh Thread

Yeah. We want Carr and no one wants this guy right before the lockout and then in comes Harbaugh and Alex goes on to win 14 games in 2011 including his first playoff game. Then spring 2013 we trade him to KC for two...I repeat...two 2nd round picks. So yea...I would say he helped turn him around. We want Carr? LOL!

And let us not forget the rapid success we've had with Kap...a pistol offense college gimmick QB that was supposed to be a two to three year project before seeing the field

Let's just fire this loser already and bring in Billick, we'd have at least 8 trophies by now, and Christian Ponder would be MVP.

He was far from arrow up before Harbaugh. I've got nothing against Alex, but he was 3-7 in 2010 and fighting with Troy Smith for playing time.

Do we need to go into the statistics about Alex Smith again? Quit bagging on Alex. He's long gone, just admit that he closed out 2010 with a very strong 7 game stretch of 11 TDs, 3 INTs, 1450 yards, and a passer rating of 94.75.

If you think that level of play did not influence Harbaugh's decision to keep Alex at all? Then you are being plain stubborn and foolish.

Harbaugh pulled Alex up just "that much more" but Alex in 2010 was the same Alex we saw in KC this season and the same Alex we saw in 2011 and 2012. Some fantastic games here and there, with some pretty bad ones thrown in. But since 2010 Alex has been consistent, no matter the coach.

Anyone else worried we haven't heard anything about an extension? maybe I'm just paranoid or being impatient but after I saw Ron rivera get his extensions it made me antsy.

I'm sure we're talking to him about it. Plenty of time
I think it's worth noting that Jim Harbaugh currently has the highest winning percentage of all NFL Head Coaches at .760. Belechick is second at .728.

Pete Carroll has the 13th best winning percentage at .594

The greatest measure of a coach is how well they can teach the game to young players. Any half way decent coach can take a loaded roster and win more than they lose. A truly awesome coach will turn those green rookies into quality players. Harbaugh has yet to show that ability in the pros. Nowhere has that been more evident than with WRs and the slow development of the passing skills of Kaepernick.

Turned Alex around

Naw. His career was a disaster before JH arrived and was on his way out.

JH was the new kid in town and he took a huge risk bringing him back. That could of derailed his career before it even started.

Jim Harbaugh is the ONLY reason Alex has had any success in the NFL to begin with (Alex even admits that his time with Harbaugh made him a better QB to where he is in KC as of now), this is becoming a moot point. Before Harbaugh joined the 49ers, Alex Smith's mechanics were f**king garbage, and they didn't really change, they were just 'worked around' in a system fit to Alex's fears of throwing the ball over 25+ yards in a game.

Seriously, you go back and you look at every Associated Press member that voted Harbaugh Coach of the Year (in 2011), the first paragraph included, "if this guy was able to coach Alex Smith into an NFC Championship game...". It is what it is.
WHOS....GOT IT BETTER THEN US

That'll help his negotiations. But Pete has what harbaugh wants and that's a Lombardi trophy.
Curious to why we haven't extended him already. If Harbaugh and the niners are about quieting the 'outside noise and preventing distractions to the TEAM TEAM TEAM' then extending him would do exactly that. I hope that made sense lol

Pete did was Harbaugh failed to do...and that's have his team READY TO PLAY to start the superbowl

harbaugh had the team ill prepared, they looked flat and mistake prone and blew a superbowl against an inferior opponent

pete had his team amped and ready to dominate

jim continues to walk on water somehow but he's failed to win 1 sb w/ great teams 3yrs in a row

i still don't know how they came out so flat against the ravens...9 of 10 times they should dominate that ravens team, it was a complete mis-match

joe flacco was on a great streak, he had 8 tds 0 picks in 3 playoff games before AND our secondary had been yielding a lot of passing yards and big plays down the stretch. additionally the ravens were on fire as a redzone D in the playoffs and thats exactly what we struggled with in that super bowl.
