So far, our coaching staff has outcoached nearly every other opponent. I think, with Dallas, we'd beat them now that the team has finally had their time together, and had time to install their playbook, and gotten some confidence.
But as for Harbaugh... definitely, that's the Coach of the Year.
I wonder though if it's just a case of teams being unfamiliar with our team's tendencies. I mean... I'm sure the Bucs had NO idea on defense that they were going to line up and see 5 offensive linemen, Vernon Davis, Delanie Walker, Bruce Miller, Isaac Sopoaga, and an extra offensive lineman in Chilo Rachal or Alex Boone. There's some ideas and concepts the 49ers are using that the league has probably never seen before. We're probably going to have that element of surprise for a few more weeks because this is only the first game we've come out passing. Cat's starting to come out of the bag.
But by the end of the season, teams will have figured out our tendencies, and the REAL test to see Harbaugh's coaching prowess will come. I think he'll rise to the occasion too.
