I like the idea OP...
My take... far fetched or not... IMHO though... we can't put anything passed Jim Harbaugh because of what he has done so far. Nothing really has been of conventional wisdom.
2 wins 1 loss 2 wins 1 loss 2 wins 1 tie 2 wins 1 loss... we are at the 2 win part of the pattern... The way those losses look... are suspect. Way too conservative. Coming out flat. Almost purposely executed. Not the players... but by the Coaching.
Could it be that Harbaugh is trying NOT to get this team firing on all cylinders too early... waiting for the right moment to open it up... like RIGHT NOW? the last 3 games of the season... RUN THE TABLE...?
EDIT : i just read what I wrote! hahahaha...
i sound like a lunatic! hahahaha!
