Jim Harbaugh Thread

Florio would love to see the Niners implode.

No I'm not saying it almost happened, but the deal was on the table at some point in the last month. I believe Harbaugh showed interest but wants to make things work in the Bay. But when does he say screw it and go where there is a whole lot more money waiting for him? I would think after this coming season.

These beliefs of yours are derived from what exactly? Erroneous articles like this one from PFT ?
I think that while player decisions may be causing some friction between Baalke and Harbaugh, I believe the main issue is the niners are pissed off for the ineptness of what many fans feel is some of the offensive coaches namely, the wide receiver coach and OC. I think Baalke wants some better coaching in some areas. I don't believe Roman's not getting a head coaching job as just coincidence and Harbaugh may be unwilling to undercut his guys.

blind faith in Jason Garrett.

More like his pride since Jason Garrett was his hand picked next genius coach in league history. If he fires him he would have to admit he was wrong.

You're still listing an old story of an "unnamed 49er source" that denied the report, but nothing about Jed York's denial. Nothing.

Class journalism right there.

They updated it at the end of this article. Nope, no story for York denying it, just a tiny little bit you can't see at the bottom of an article.

Well, at least they added it somewhere. With nowhere near the sensationalism of the other posts, but it's a start.
This is some good offseason entertainment..complete BS..but entertaining none the less.

Exactly.

Florios silence right now is deafening.

Lets put it another way...

...who benefits if the 49ers think that there is another team out there willing to give up a ton of picks and give Harbaugh a big contract?

historically speaking the Browns would benefit from such a deal. Buccaneers won a Super Bowl 1st season with Gruden (after trading for him). Patriots won a Super Bowl their 2nd season with Bellichick (after trading for him). Draft picks are no guarantee. And no way would this team find another franchise coach for the foreseeable future.
The nfl made a rule prohibiting trades of coaches for draft picks after gruden.

was that rule changed?

This "story" is ludicrous

It's speculation, just like your speculation that PFT is incorrect. This story did not come from thin air, there is truth to it but we don't know the extent of that truth. That's not speculation, that's fact.

Was Jed York speculating when he said the report was false? Or are you calling him a liar?
Browns didn't "almost" do anything. Pure lunacy. If anything, they tried to contact us and were told to F off.

I'm calling him a liar. What would Jed, the organization and the team have to gain by saying "yeah we almost traded Jim to the Browns" ? I'll answer that for you, nothing.

I don't believe that for a second.

Is it likely the Browns inquired? Sure. Does that mean the 49ers were trying to dump Harbaugh? Not even close. More likely the Browns inquired, the 49er braught it to Jim and he said he wanted to stay. End of story.

This is the most realistic possibility. The Browns offered something and the 49ers told Jim and he said no thank you. Doesn't mean the 49ers were considering it all, they just brought it to his attention. But of course the media blows this way out of proportion.

Baalke is all about leverage in negotiations AND respecting those involved.

This is likely what happened as Marvin and Donnie have said.

Baalke probably got the call, told Harbaugh like "You know we're trying to get your contract hammered out but if you aren't confident we'll get it figured out there is a way you can move on. Cleveland just offered us "Insert picks, players, etc here" for your remaining contract. What do you think?"

Jim said "No thanks. I'm here, we'll get it figured out."

Baalke called back the Browns and "no thanks. we're good over here".

end of story until.....

Michael Lombardi and Joe Banner get fired. Then the floodgates open.

Right. And do you have evidence to support Jed ever lying? I'll answer that for you. No.

It's incredibly hypocritical to claim someone is lying by using the evidence of someone who has reported false stories in the recent past concerning our team and coach.

All I'm really hearing from you is a bunch of
