One thing Harbaugh is not good at.

I think his challenges are well designed to take the momentum away from opponents, they are more like timeouts.

Weren't we supposed to have the best refs? Cause it was a popular game or something?
losing?
I know one thing he's definitely not good at: Giving a s**t about what anyone else thinks about him.

As long as the ref is under the hood, and yes, I'm aware you turned that into a euphemism.

The immaturity in me makes it necessary to do it. :)

All good, we all love Harbs is what matters.
He's 50/50, but what most people don't know is that (like his brother) he sometimes uses challenges as a fake pseudo time-out to trick the other team into keeping its 'base-packages' out, while our substitutions sneak off the sideline.

Example: 49ers/Steelers MNF game last season (we challenge the Vernon Davis non-TD which looks like an obvious challenge we'd lose; result = trick bootleg for TD).

I'm not whining. There is not a coach in the league I would rather have. He's the best thing in almost 20 years to hit the 49ers. That being said he could get better at challenges.

yah he could improve on that. For me personally I think he should tone it down on the refs a bit, dude is a bit high strung Im worried he might pop a blood vessel or something.

I recall Buck during the game saying that we got the crew that threw the most flags in the preseason.

^^^ that
He's not good at washing his clothes. Hes been wearing the same s**t since last year.
Usually someone in the 9ers booth will replay the play and tell him to challenge or not. Its not all Harbaugh

sometimes he does it because the players are calling for it, sort of spur-of the moment, trusting his players.

Sometimes he does it strategically, because reviews typically last longer than timeouts, give the guys a blow, coach en up, etc.

Agree. Seems to me he likes to do this from time to time to give his whole team a breather and him a chance to rip the refs.

He's a really fiery guy. But you wonder if it is too much. He could burn out.

Doubt it, His life is football, Since he came into the league as a player, he will die coaching. He's not the kind of guy to just quit, he was horrible like alex and fought through it. Fought through the ranks in coaching, and fought to be a nfl coach. I just think he will go as long the fans want him. Even walsh said he retired to early himself.

Im more worried about him literally burning out and having a heart attack on the sideline, i used to get mad like that when i was a kid and man you clench up all over, that isnt good for middle aged dudes, haha. I dont care if they were NFL athletes or not, i know hes been eating some fried home cooking since he left the League.
The first challenge I thought was to also give the team a breather. Also, challenges aren't as valuable anymore because even turnovers are automatically reviewed by the booth
