I do agree that Fangio is more of a problem than Roman though.
I agree no team will be perfect every week but last season the 49ers were up and down far too often. That falls to the coaching staff. If it had been only a game or two it would be a different story, but they got beat on the same kind of plays in situations that should have been foreseen and a plan formulated to prevent it. That didn't happen and that fall ultimately on Harbaugh. We can talk about Roman and Fangio but they don't do anything that does go through JH. I am looking to see a more consistent overall performance level. Good 49er teams of the past did not have this repeated up and down pattern.
I like Harbaugh and agree with his hiring but he has not yet shown me he is an elite coach in this league. He gets a lot of unearned credit because the team is winning but it should have been winning before he arrived if the HC was someone with any kind of decent resume in this league. That is why I believe this season will show us a lot about whether this team and this coach are the real deal or not.
