Jim Harbaugh Thread

If he were to have pulled Kap out and put alex in when things were first getting out of control all hell would break loose and we would probably still have lost and people would be mad for putting Alex in. If he would have done so in garbage time it would have been a slap in the face to alex. He probably wanted to see how kap responded.

We are a year and a half removed from the bottom of the league. The mood swings are crazy. A 16 (or so) year head coach (Fisher) out thought Harbaugh in his second year, so what? I am damn happy he's the coach of our team. He is NO Rex Ryan. He is snobbish with the media IDGAF. His players don't see him as arrogant and that's all the matters.

yup the the team is a true reflection of the head coach and the 49ers conduct themselves very professionally. even through a QB change.

Honestly, this was a perfect storm for the Seahawks. The 49ers were coming off their biggest high of the season by beating the Patriots in Foxborough.

Then the Patriots were ranked #1 after that, and the 49ers beat them. Now we were ranked #1 and the Seahawks beat us. It is a trend that keeps happening. The seahawks were playing at home where they never lose. Petey REALLY wanted a win against Harbaugh. The Seahawks wanted to clinch their spot in the playoffs after we already clinched ours. The intensity and momentum was all in the Hawks favor this week. Thank God we beat the Patriots because we would be fighting for a wildcard spot rather than a division title or #2 seed.

Good post. Fans who are overreacting after this loss don't understand this. 49ers were at a TERRIBLE spot in the schedule. Just like last year when we lose at Baltimore, sometimes the NFL screws us with terrible spots.

49ers last 5:
@ Saints
@ Rams
vs. MIA
@ NE
@SEA

SEA last 5:
@ MIA
@ Chicago
vs. AZ
@ Buff
vs. Niners

That was a brutal stretch and we should all be grateful we came out of that with the division lead.


Yes, it was a perfect storm. Exhausted after Pats game and trip to east coast. D played a huge number of plays. Put out their "A" game. Seattle is the underdog this year. They have the same emotional roll going we did last year. It's all coming together for them. All the key injuries at one time. Playing in Seattle..Everything lined up perfectly for massacre. Have you noticed how this is happening to one top team after another this year. Interesting...

It's the kind of thing that gets made up to make Harbaugh look bad on top of the fact that his team just got curb-stomped. I don't believe it happened, the Seahwaks are full of ish and needed to come up with anything to make themselves look good beyond what they did on the field. I trust in Jim Harbaugh, he isn't perfect but he's as a good of coach as there is in the NFL today and I'm glad the 49ers have him as their coach.

I don't believe the QB change had anything to do with what happened last night, and I don't believe we win in New England with our old QB.

Finally a voice of reason!!!! You nailed it!
The way i look at it is this.

This team has always had some shortcomings on Offense, But Alex, who was called a Game Manager, But was really more like a game General, did alot to comerup for those shortcomings through realtime adjustments at the LOS. That, and he beleived in spreading the football around, and riding Gore as the bell Cow. This was the way the offense was tailored to fit his mentality and strengths as a QB.

The Media latched on to AS as the weak link to the offense, for lack of a better term he was the scapegoat. Always has been since he was drafted.

With AS getting the media attention, all harbaugh had to do was defend his QB. That is much easier to do than to defend ones own shortcomings as a coach.

Now that AS is no longer the scapegoat, the media is begining to see that this is not the dreamteam it was last season. They are begining to question why? A few of harbaughs questionable decisions this season are coming front and center, and harbaugh has yet to own those decisions. My biggest problem with harbaugh right now is the fact that he is stubborn, and hasnt taken responsibility for the mistakes he has made. I still think he is a quality coach, but i am begining to seriously question his integrity when it comes to taking responsibility for the problems he and his staff has caused with this team.

Why was harbaugh so determined to risk injury to kap in the waning moments of a blowout? I understand he needs reps in live action and he has started only a handful of games, but I have a major problem with calling a qb sneak for a meaningless first down. Once again the harbaugh ego takes presedence over everything. He couldn't stand the taste of a pete carroll blowout so he risks it all for nothing. Harbaugh is starting to resemble rex ryan. So much rah rah, so much mouth, but he gets outcoached regularly and his team masks his defeciencies as a coach. It should be the other way around

PL, especially when you say Harbaugh is no better than Rex Ryan (wow), how about an over-reaction with this comment. NFC championship game last year and 10-4-1 this year. come on. If we play the Seaguls again in the playoffs, Harbs will find a way to out coach Carrol as usual. He out coached him in college and so far 3-1 in the NFL against him, come on son please with this crap.

Alex had some of his best games vs. the Rams. We beat the Rams with him. Both times.

I think he can't pull Kap now because if Smith comes in and throws for a few touchdowns and looks good he is screwed. He wants Kap and knows that if Smith looks better he will have a divided locker room and be blasted by the media. I think he really has painted himself in a corner and may have cost us a superbowl this year.

Ridiculous post imo.

Funny how u pretend to know what Harbaugh is thinking and his intentions.

Everything worked in seagulls favor...Wilson threw some balls he didn't even know how the WRs catch em..seagulls had the momentum..niners didn't expect hoping this would help to learn how to be ready for situations like this...a win doesn't mean the seagulls are better..let's move on...
