Nice post, Golitta.
Nothing succeeds like success, and while the snowball isn't quite rolling yet, there's no doubt that it's forming. Aside from the aspects that you highlighted, I believe Harbaugh's youth will be a huge asset in the years to come. If things continue to go well, it's not unrealistic to see Harbaugh at the helm for ten or more years. Granted, that's looking waaaaay over the horizon, but the key point is this: For the first time in a long time, we seem to have a coherent plan for the franchise and the right people in the right jobs. That certainly doesn't guarantee success, but it makes it a whole lot more plausible than we've seen in over a decade.
Harbaugh at the helm for ten or more years...I like what that implies! I think we have chance to be special, in the NFL coaches got a few years to find their QB and start winning, in todays NFL that has really shorted to win now or you're gone! Harbuagh has shown he can win with Smith, no mean feat, others have tried and failed, but Harbuagh has bought himself time to find "his guy". Every great coach has "his QB" look at how downright awful Belicheck was before Brady, if Bledsoe does't get hurt, and Brady never starts for Belicheck...he was on the hot seat! Well Harbaugh has shown he deserves time to develop his guy, weather it is Alex or a player not even on the roster yet, he will be given time, if he coaches here for ten years, it is because he has his guy, and we have at least one more ring!
