Overall, I think Baalke's done a good job of managing the cap and acquiring good players for Harbaugh. I also have to point out he (Baalke) is the one constant between both Singletary's and Harbaugh's tenures as head coaches. Neither head coach has had a particularly great relationship with him. What I'm suggesting is it's possible Baalke's perhaps a bigger part of the rift between the FO and the bench than we think or may know of. I get Harbaugh's personality and Baalke's may not mesh that well. I agree JH should get a contract extension...but not as the highest paid head coach, because although he's led his team to 3 consecutive playoffs and one SB, his record pales in comparison to someone like Belichick, who has 3 Lombardi's and has kept his team among the NFL's elite for well over a decade. The other thing is I think it's time Jed York put on his big-boy panties and quell all the hoopla by telling both Baalke and Harbaugh "we're in this together and I expect cooperation at all levels to insure we win another Super Bowl".
