If we make the playoffs this year, than Harbaugh must be one of the Gods. He would be considered the best coach ever in any sport.
It would be the most amazing thing in history forget about sports....The man on the moon, Microsoft or what ever you could dream of. Harbaugh taking Lucky Sperm's team of rejects minus Willis and Davis to the playoffs.
Sorry aint gonna happen.
I remember some guy on sports 910 saying last season before the season that if John Fox got five wins out of the Carolina Panthers then he should be coach of the year. They had key talent at certain positions like us, probably even more. They had perhaps the best running back tandem in the NFL. One of the better wide receivers out there when healthy. One of the better offensive lines in the NFL. On defense, they had a solid pass rush from their ends, especially Charles Johnson. One of the better linebackers in the game and a solid but not spectacular secondary. Better than what we have now. Most of all they had quarterback question marks going into the season, I'd say pretty comparable circumstances to us at the current moment and if that team was a two win team, how am I to believe our current roster is much more than that?
1) We are in a weaker division than they are.
2) Fox is a DC, not an offensive mind.
3) Every time people are expecting the niners to bust out on top we fail to live up to expectations, this year it is the opposite. So we will do what is not expected.
4) Maybe because so many positions are open, the competition to play may elevate the team as a whole.
Very optimistic and please pass the coolaid--I'll buy it.
