Harbaugh wants to be coaching up his players and reviewing film... not talking to reporters who ask him the same questions that have relatively obvious answers. I'm not surprised he doesn't seem to be in a good mood.
A bit like Bellichick but with sharper edge, imo. I enjoy how he almost goes into detail to explain why a particular reporter(s) make a statement before asking a question, in an attempt to get the Coach to confirm a statement that the reporter framed.

Clearly not the Coach's most enjoyable task. lol
Hope he gets better at it.

Not much info and I don't get why he could not bring himself to say the oline stunk. Could have said it and then said but its early and we will get better with practice.

Anyway, I like him alot but he is also a work in progress.
From a fans perspective his press conferences are horrible (because he says nothing)... but I'm ok with that if it means more W's on the board

Yeah, I am still 100% behind Harbaugh. One stupid preseason game won't change my opinion on him. But I do think he is really strange in his interviews and conferences. He doesn't say much and really gets defensive at times when reporters ask stupid questions ( its funny to see this at times lol)

I guess we can expect to not get much info from him on Mondays after the games...
Where do you guys see the press conferences?

Plus 1!
jim carey swag ...
His pressers remind of Nolans before the losses took away his bite. Same thing could happen to Harabuagh if he ends up being another Spurrier.
Hey- He could always "go back and look at the film" His knowledge of the game is pretty refreshing.

It may also just be because it's preseason and he wants to keep things as secret as possible, no hints as to who he's favoring to start and stuff like that. I like that much better than sing who started davis and iupati nearly like the first week of camp or something lol. By doing that you also kill competition at the position.

I thought it was funny that he said he even doesn't like making statements "comparing" two players because it "degrades" one of the players. I think the question was who he thinks is the better player or who he preferred to get the #1 spot - crabtree or edwards. He just kept repeating that they're both good lol. It makes sense but has to be frustrating to the reporters haha.

I haven't heard harbaugh's conference from the saints game, but these aren't real games so he only has to show and explain his frustrations once the real losing begins lol.
Reporters are not interested in the health of the team. They are interested in getting their story, and some at any cost, including sacrificing a player or two if they can get an inside edge. I find many reporters have the moral values of half of a clam and I do not like the way they are willing to hurt someone to get a story. So I like that Harbaugh does not let that issue come up in his interviews. So if they want information ask an information question. Harbaughs task is to prepare a football team, not care for the story needs of the reporters. So Harbaugh's task is to not needlessly put someone down when it is a crisis time or a learning time. So we will see if Harbaugh can find a neutral ground to care for his teams needs and for the reporters needs.

Well you seen how the media jumped his words yesterday. Him saying there's no clear cut victor at QB. Next thing you know NBC, ESPN, Yahoo, not to mention the local papers all made a story out of nothing. It's been that way since he first got here saying the best man will win. Suddenly it's big news? Especially after reading the rest of the conference call how he has said nobody's even had a chance yet after so few practices. It's rediculous...
