To me this is a very dangerous mindset. The barometer should not be "has he won Super Bowls", it should be "are we consistently in a position to win one?".

Look at someone like Bill Belichick. Belichick is probably the best coach in the game today (in fact, I would say he is inarguably the best coach of his era, but I digress). In 14 seasons with the Patriots, he's won the Super Bowl "only" 3 times. That means 11 out of his 14 (79% of the time) seasons he's "failed". Over the last nine seasons, he hasn't won a single Super Bowl (this includes 3 AFC Championship Game losses and 2 Super Bowl losses).

Football is a game of inches, and often times wins or losses don't come down to coaching, they come down to lucky breaks (especially in win-or-go-home, make-or-break games). Personally, I'd hate to see Harbaugh kicked to the curb because he hasn't won it all. Making it to the NFCCG 3 years in a row and instantly transforming our franchise into a juggernaut says expontentially more about his coaching ability than his lack of Super Bowls does.

I would absolutely hate to see Baalke/York decide that he lacks the "killer instinct" to win it all and push him out the door, only to bring in someone else who would almost assuredly be a downgrade.

Exactly. Harb better get an extension. Some people have real short memory and have forgotten about how it was pre-harbaugh

+1. 49ers are playing with fire if they are denying Harbaugh top dollar due to lack of a SB victory. He's a Top 3 coach in the game. He should be payed like one.

Mike Tomlin is a SB winner for f**ks sake. Anybody want to trade Harbaugh for Tomlin and pay him "SB winner" money? Hell no. Harbaugh all day, every day. Pay the man,

I think that Harbaugh has two years left on his contract---2014 and 2015. Is that correct?

If that is correct, wouldn't it be normal for him to signed sometime before the start of the 2015 season?

I have no real idea of what Harbaugh expects in a contract or what the team has offered him.

The team has done very well with Harbaugh as a head coach, so it would make sense for him to be paid very well.

But, Harbaugh's contract does not affect the cap, so I do not really care all that much what he gets paid.

Um you do know that comes out to 6.9 million a year. Less then Bill Belichick (7.5 million), Jeff Fisher (7 million), Andy Reid (7.5 million), Sean Payton (8 million) & Pete Carroll (7+ million).Tom Coughlin makes 6.67 million & Chip Kelly makes 6.5 million. Also Mike Shanahan was making 7 million before being fired.

I can add. Just trying to point out that Harbaugh is going to want more than a college coach.

Give him 10 years 100 million
I have a sick ill feeling that this is Harbaugh's last ride with us. I better be wrong and I HOPE Im wrong but c'mon why didn't he sign his extension?

Because he wants to win a SB first and get paid more

Was there even am extension offered
I hope a deal gets done at some point. I don't want the nightmare of losing Harbs, and replacing him with Jed's man crush (Tomsula) to become a reality. Don't get me wrong, I love Jim, but only in his current capacity.

Good question?

Does anybody know if, or when, an actual extension was offered?

Does anybody know anything concrete about the negotiations between the team and Harbaugh?

Bingo! Jim Harbaugh is betting on himself. A win in Superbowl 49 and his value goes up! I don't think Harbaugh is going anywhere. I think there is only a 5% chance he leaves. He has helped build this team (Kap) ... no reason to move on.
You would think the guy who resurrected your team after a decade of being one of the most pathetic organizations in the NFL would get treated like royalty. Instead pride and egos are getting in the way of doing what's right.

The entire front office, including Harbaugh, has a lot of other more pressing issues to deal with, than a coach whose contract expires in two years.

I'm sure Harbaugh himself wanted everybody to focus on Kap, Crabs, Aldon and others, before worrying about contracts expiring in two years, which includes Davis and Boone.

Although Boone would be nice to extend.

Whose pride and ego are getting in the way?

And, where did you get this information?

Boone is ranked 41st in salary for guards according to over the cap. (Well, if I counted correctly.)

That is not so good. I have no problem with Boone fighting to get more money.

I hope he gets his extension.
