I think Harbaugh is doing an exceptional job. Things like the qbs all seemed to have progressed and have enough reps and the team has enough time to refine other skills unlike the previous coaches who did not have even the starters at the competent stage. I am anxious to see just how good the backups are in preseason. I believe the quality is there but if they excel, it will say a lot about the coaches. I was surprised that they did not go with a big DL earlier in the draft. It infers the backups must be at least comparable to those earlier picks. When you can get guys as udfa pickups the scouts and Baalke and Co. must be doing a hell of a job. No coach who whips your ass is all that popular with opposing teams. Walsh was always denigrated as a soft coach and his (ego or self confidence) pissed off the so called tough teams. Harbaugh beat teams largely by pounding them into losing and I am sure guys like the Lions etc got humbled, not a good sign if that is your mantra. It is pretty evident the niners have some good coaches.
