Above Harbaugh

when I read "above harbaugh" I assume you are referring to ownership....

slightly off topic, I wouldnt be surprised if the big wigs were pushing to have Kaepernick play
Harbaugh is #1 in my opinion (but I realize I'm biased). So, based on (in order) Superbowl wins, playoff wins, regular season record, performance of team in year prior to coaching hire and consistency (which must be measured over time) I'd say the list looks like this:

1) Belicheck
2) Coughlin
3) Payton
4) Tomlin
5) McCarthy
6) John Harbaugh
7) Jim Harbaugh

If Coach wins the Superbowl this year, then I think he vaults all the way up to #2. But the top five should be reserved for Superbowl winners. And Coach's brother has consistently had his team in contention (for five years in a row), though not quite good enough to win it all. So, I'd slot Coach at 7, which seems too low, but for a coach championships = legacy.

I admire the work put in THIS SEASON by John Harbaugh and Gary Kubiak

John Harbaugh has kept the team competitive despite losing Suggs and Lewis and injuries in the secondary

Kubiak puts a a strong team on the field every sunday , these two guys always keep their teams pointed in the right direction

He almost had a team mutiny in October.

According NFL.harbaugh has created the perfect environment for they QBs..... They had flourished under he system......really?...sorry zoners ..but is true Smith should be aware of that, I think,this is the first time of a QB is benched having one of the best completion percentage in nfl...even if Smith plays ,he will be playing for another team in 2013 thank you Alex. you gave all you could...
NOBODY!

Belichick video taped the opposing team for who knows how long yet he tops the list ? He should have been banned from the NFL in my opinion. I really can't stand when people praise this disgrace to football. Yet he gets a slap on the wrist.
Uhh to be honest I think that Harbaugh took a page out of Singletary's book with his decision at qb and you have to respect that it was pretty balsy.

Way too early for this discussion.
1) Belicheck
2) Coughlin
3) Singletary
4) Harbaugh

Like Walsh, Harbaugh is not afraid to make tough decisions. Injuries may be playing a lesser role in the benching of Smith. I remember reading in one of Walsh's books that once a player begins to get hurt often, it's time to look at alternatives. Although Smith has been injury free since last year, he has had some problems with injuries in his past.
Only the immortal Bill Walsh, who is above him in heaven

Honestly, after 2 surgeries on his throwing shoulder, Smith has lost some of the zip that he had at Utah. If he did not have those, he might not be as "far behind" Kaepernick as people think Coming out of college, Rodgers had a stronger arm but not by that much.

We'll never know what "could have been" thanks to that incompetent douche NOWIN
