I am not comparing Harbaugh to Singletary by any means; however, I do want to point out that we have seen this similar line of reporting in the past.

Singletary, now in his second season as a 49ers assistant, said Walsh graciously tutored him on everything from schemes to scheduling to psychology.

”There were times that I would fly out from Chicago, have dinner with Bill, then turn around and fly back home again,” Singletary said of his early forays into coaching. ”That’s how much I respected him.”

I'm just saying. Neither a close relationship with Walsh, nor a desire to emulate him are precursors to success.

Further, what is the difference between Singletary's desire for a Ditka, 85-Bears offense, and Harbaugh's seeming desire for a Walsh, 89-49ers offense? Are both not out-dated in today's NFL?

I am not criticizing Harbaugh, just questioning the merits of the praise he seems to garner from the fans and media alike.

Good point.


Its all just talk right now, I will withhold judgment until I see some results.
Walsh didn't tutor Singletary. He spoke to Singletary a few times, and people jumped all over it saying Singletary was tutored by Walsh. Singletary was so green to the coaching community at the time any thing comes out of Walsh would have been a tutor session for Singletary. Harbaugh on the other hand was much closer to Walsh than Singletary if only for close to a year. He had already been a coach of 2 different teams before Walsh asked him to coach Stanford. There was more of a professional relationship between Walsh and Harbaugh than with Singletary.

To me there's no comparison. Singletary is a good man but he has no idea even to run an NFL defense let alone an NFL team.

Great points. I would like to point out that Walsh recommended Harbaugh to Stanford. To the best of my knowledge he did not do the same for Sing. I believe that the respect that Harbaugh has for Walsh, in addition to his prior coaching experience will be invaluable to our team.

Well said. At this point, it seems to the mantra for all new 49er coaches: Walsh!
We've been through enough crap in the last few years that its time to win some games "consistently" and then the talk can come.

You guys are just jealous you didn't think of it first.

On a more serious note, it was a much cooler name when AOL suggested it to the then 13 year old me. Now, it is really just a force of habit. Like combing my hair, even though there is not much to comb.

Is it just me, or did this reply get a little personal?

Agreed. I'd rather all the Walsh references come as an explanation for Harbaugh's success, not a "well-he-might-be-successful-because..." sort of thing.
