I am pumped every year for my team no matter what. Opening Day is like Christmas for me.
That said, this year is like 2005 when Nolan took over. Fresh and full of hope. Little did we know the failure would continue for five more frickin' years with each new one diminishing the hope that I started with.
That hope is back and with an incredible force and Harbaugh is the reason. I truly believe that he can completely change the culture like Nolan did, except with the emphasis being on the offense and QB. That hasn't been here since 2002! He hand-picked his staff with stand outs in ST, Secondary, and DC. Then he brought in his right-hand man in Roman to deliver his "brand" of ball.
Given Harbaugh's history as a Coach, we will no longer see averages of 14 to 20 points a game. Oh no! This dude is ready to bring the "hammer" down and run up the score on your ass just to make sure...Remember Pete. LOL. Can't wait for that showdown either.
My point with the above is that we will be entertained again, a high-powered balanced attack based on what the D gives. I see "in game" decisions to modify the attack to take advantage of weakness not seen in the prep before hand. Harbaugh will respond and respond well.
That's why I'm pumped for this season. I want to see some f**king offense!!!!
