Jim Harbaugh Thread

Originally posted by JiksJuicy:
I heard "The Brick" talking about this on the radio last night. He said something along the lines of the same thing. Harbaughs ego just may have ruined this team this season. He thinks he is smarter than he actually is, and lets his ego get in the way. We win 2 games and suddenly we are the best team in the league, then we come out and flop. The whole team looks unprepared and that is due to guys thinking they are the world champs.

This team no longer uses "one day at a time" motto. We switched to Kaep for tomorrow. You don't think the players see that? All this s**t Harbaugh has preached has gone out the window. "Go with the hot hand", sure.... We are getting our balls kicked in, and do we go with the hot hand, or do we stick with a guy we have to "dumb" down the offense for? Ego right there. Sure wouldn't want Alex to come in and prove coach wrong, it's not about the team anymore.

We dont use Gore anymore. Why not? Does Harbaugh have some point to prove? Is he really looking at team first or himself? Again this is all stuff i heard on the radio, and a lot of people agree. Harbaughs ego has cost us this season. I myself had expectations of Super Bowl 6 weeks ago. Now my expectations are a first or second round exit.

Yes another promotional ad for Smith; he is gone, get over it. In the end would you rather have Singleterry or Nolan..Nothin but armchair wunderkinds blowing BS that they think is God's truth.. The same goes for dj43 BS diatribe and Vaden who calls out JH for being a punk, when.. Harbaugh called total BS on the horn thing as, "a total fabrication. Thanks but no thinks; I'll believe Harbaugh over some lineman. And the "what's your deal" thing, groovy, I love it..

Some of you people really think your the cats pajamas and "know-it-alls," when all you are, are bystanders far away from the reality of the people who's jobs you criticize and that never in a thousand years you could fill. BTW, if anyone doesn't think that Smith would have racked up at least 5 sacks in that game falling in his fetal position to save yardage on sacks, if you don't think this would have happened then you are out of your minds..Kap was sacked once, he was trying to make a play, so what if it was a 10-15yrd sack? I would rather have that one sakc than 5 or 6 with nothing to show for them..

Merry Frickin Christmas dudes..

23-7-1 with the 49ers

Yep, clearly always out coached

TheRatman13, It was 28 to 6 and the game was over. The 49ers weren't coming back from 22 down at halftime in Seattle. Sometimes you have to face the fact you've lost and keep players healthy for another battle.

We weren't coming back, you are right about that. Combine the fact that we are not a team that plays well from behind but in Seattle it wasn't going to happen. With that said how much do you think the players would have respected their head coach after the game had he just quit and threw the towel in. You play to the final whistle and its good for this guys to feel a little humility because we have shown that we can handle it. We've never lost two in a row under Harbaugh and I look for that trend to continue this week... .

They don't call us the "whiners" for nothing. Makes it easy to spot the band-wagon fans,they don't remember what it was like to be the laughing stock of the league. You want to talk about out-coached? Watch a game under HC Mike Singletary, or Mike Nolan. Harbaugh and his staff are 5-star.

One area in which Harbaugh's ego certainly hurts the team, IMO, is his sideline behavior with the officials. His constant baiting and complaining does not help his team. Officials will do one of two things in that situation: tune him out completely, or wait for a chance to put him in his place. All a coach can ask of the officials is the benefit of the doubt in a close call. Recent calls on the field force me to question if Harbaugh is getting any consideration at all.

I have both coached a lot of games and reffed a lot of games, and though they were not at anything like this level, I can tell anyone who wants to listen, that officials are a pretty close bunch. They know which coaches are loud mouths and which ones are very measured in their comments. In the first case, the refs tune them out. In the second case, the refs know and respect the coach so when he questions a decision, they are much more willing to listen...just giving him the benefit of the doubt.

As a coach, players get distracted by constant yelling by the coach. They don't say anything publicly but they know the game well enough to know when the coach is just running his mouth and when he shouldn't. In a close competitive game, the coach MUST be the one calm voice in a storm of emotion. Harbaugh's record in challenges in one of the worst in the league. I can't help but think that if he were more composed on the sidelines he would not have wasted as many challenges and timeouts as he has.

For a guy that says he idolized Bill Walsh, to have such a lack of composure and appropriate demeanor on the sidelines makes me question if he really listened to everything Bill told him about coaching. Seems like he needs to get his ego under control and coach the game in a more considered way.

I forget; are you really Jim Harbaugh or maybe you are one of the players?

Whatever JH's flaws (real or perceived) are, no one can deny the fact that he brought this team back to relevance again after years of wandering in the NFL wastelands. I, for one, am happy that he is the coach of the 49ers, and I still believe that he will bring us #6.

You can't put all of this on Roman. Harbaugh is asking him to call a different game from a different offense than that of the start of the season. The offensive change is on Harbaugh his call his responsibility.
We should fire Harbaugh and sign Norv Turner to be the head coach

I agree with this. He also has veto power on play calls, and hasnt addressed the schemes that arent working over the second half of the season, so he must be on board with them. Gameplans have been aweful, and so have second half adjustments. Cant blame roman 100% without Harbaugh shareing that blame.
There seems to be a problem getting the plays into Kaep on time or he is trying to change to much at the line. I think some of the problem with the defense was they had to play 93 snaps last week and they were a little tired. There has also been times when Fangio seems like he doesn't have an answer to adjust to the other teams offense. When you ad that to the fact they never give anybody a break on the defense the whole game, you can sometimes see the defense get a little slow in the fourth quarter.
