To further back up your claim. Granted its just 2 seasons of work, but among active coaches, Harbaugh has the highest career winning percentange at .766, Belichick is at .726, with Smith at .700 Wiki Source....... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_current_National_Football_League_head_coaches
Thanks! Incredible that some Niner fans are pissed at him, isn't it.
No. Not really all that incredible. The first SB I ever watched was in 85. I was a niner fan from then on. No, I'm not fairweather, I was 9, give me some slack. People that were around for the days of Walsh, Joe, Steve, Seifert, we remember those times. Us and Dallas. Us and GB. A dynasty. As fans, we didnt come into a season wondering if we would win the division, we wondered if we would be the 1 or 2 seed and how which archrival could be us and how. 11-4-1 never would have been acceptable, ever. 0-1-1 against the Rams? We would have been calling for heads to roll.
I like Harbaugh I do. I think he will lead us back to where we belong, not among the elite, but THE elite team in the NFL. Eddies team. The team that thought perfect was the ultimate goal. Not just winning, not just SuperBowls, but being perfect in what they did. Rice, Lott, the greatest this game has ever known. The greatest teams ever.
Thats why some question Harbaugh. We're not that team, those teams. Can we be? Damn, I hope so, I miss those days.
For some of our fans to be upset at our record and at Harbaugh is good. It gives us balance. We have the posters that think he is the 2nd coming of Walsh, we have those who threw him under the bus after last years NFCC game. We need those who remember who were, the pride that we had. Not the years of Erickson, Nolan and Sing. However, they need to know that a team like we had comes across once in a lifetime, we've had two. Think of how the Browns would feel with a year like ours?
We've swallowed a bitter pill being Niner Faithfull for the last decade, and for some, they think its just more of the same. Remember, we were great, we will be great. I hope its Harbaugh that takes us there, and I have faith that crazy b*****d will. But for those that dont. More power to them, we've been mislead for so many years, its easy to be bitter. Let us win a SB, and then another, and then they will come around. I dont disrespect any that wish to wait that long. Just have FAITH.
