Harbaugh channels Walsh

Yeah, and when he did have time, he threw low to Davis and behind Edwards.

Lets blame that on the OL too.

He had a whole 4 legit plays were he had an opportunity to actually throw. FOUR. And on those four, he nailed two of them. So because of two missed balls, in preseason, you're already going the HE'S HOPELESS route? Really bro, come on now. Use your noggin. Wait until he has an actual legit chance to prove himself in the preseason.
Lets just be honest, we don't have many good players and its going to take a year or two before we are relevant again. This is the same OL as the last year. Nothing of a surprise there. Harbaugh is a rookie coach and I am sure he learned from this. Lets wait and see how this whole thing turns out. I just wish Jed and Baalke would shut their mouth for a while and stop talking about how they have plans and its all going to work itself out. This week's grade "F" in my book.

Quite simply Cohn just needs to get his mind out of the gutter. But hey, this is the crap people want to read I guess. I'll give him credit for one thing though.....the attacking manner in which he writes his articles feeds the hungry. He was kissing Harbaugh's ass the whole offseason. He acts like he's surprised this happened.

I especially like the crack about how Harbaugh was supposed to be the second coming of Bill Walsh, as if Walsh's first couple seasons were championships or something. Cohn was probably getting coffee and donuts for real columnists back in NY when that was going on.

Yes the Saints had 12 practices too. It's pretty hard to dial up blitzes every down. Lest Cohn forget that our defense handled the Saints first team offense pretty well. But there's not much to attack there so I could see why Cohn left that part out.

I'm not defending how our offense performed, but if you're going to chastise the HC, be fair about it. Acknowledge both sides of the ball, 12 practices notwithstanding.


This ~ nicely said
typical Cohn throwing a b***h fit. It's week 1 of the preseason

seriously dude, whats your relation to Cohn?
i wasnt sure which cohn wrote the article, so i clik'd the link, but once i saw it was a lowell-blow, i aborted. i will say, i like the image of JH and payton. Payton is looking down at the ground like a little biznitch avoiding eye contact. A picture says a million words. Payton is a...u guys can fill in the blank.
Ironic, cause I think the blitzing might have been started by our defense. Sean Peyton, did the same and then some. But to say that Harbaugh was ready to kickass in the NFL in a preseason game and got owned, makes for interesting read and spin, but not accurate at all.
I won't even bother reading his article. I stopped with his crap some time ago now. How about I just say this. New staff, new offense, only 12 days of practice and instillation (7 for Alex), no game planning, Snyder starting at C for first time....etc, etc...

we all should have known it was goin to be ugly but instead everyone wants to freak the F out. I knew I should avoid the zone forum for the WHOLE preseason.

Nothing, but he is always dead on on his articles. Most of you guys are the same people who were jumping all over Cohn any time he was critical of Nolan or Sing. Now who should be serious here.

I dont always say this but this time I kind of agree with him.


Yeah, I usually hate Lowell's articles. I am ok with collumnists being critical, but he and Ratto are just too doomsday for my tastethis one for this game was actually pretty fair, and pretty mild by Cohn's standards. Props to Lowell for being fair for once.

it was a very singletary-like move for harbaugh to start a qb controversy with those comments

If you really look at what he said he said they would compete, which implies a competition, and why shouldn't they compete. Any controversy is just in the minds of the fans and the media as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, he was all over Harbaugh's nuts during the lockout, and now he contrasts him unfavorably with Walsh after one preeason game, even though the Niners sucked for two years under Walsh. He shows no accountability, maturity, or respect for history, and he does it all in a condescending, superior tone. He is a self-important joke. I am glad enough of you guys read the article to give us a summary, because I won't give this guy as much as one click ever again. You must be a friend or relative, because your links and posts are probably single-handedly keeping this bum employed.
So, Harbaugh has said all along that he would not hand any job to a player, they had to earn it. Now he says that he will not hand any job to a player, they had to earn it...but this is news? Now there is a controversy?

Sadly conceived article as he accused Harbaugh of thinking he could just show up and win in the NFL. I have seen nothing that indicates Harbaugh is delusional. Team played poorly on offense after twelve days of practice. CK played the first week of practice as the #1 QB and Smith had a week. CK played like a rookie and Smith played like Brees, poorly...what do we take from that? Nothing.

The comparison with Walsh was odd. Walsh used the preseason to perfect timing and basic play. He never tipped his hand even when other coaches tried to show him up in preseason. So Harbaugh seems to be doing exactly the same.
