Stop spamming the Mangini thread with your pu55y feelings.
When you want to sell a book in sports if there is not back-biting, gossipy, he said she said items, the book does not sell. Any coach that can't win is open to all critism. At least Mangini had some success, compare that to the Eriikson, Nolan, Singletary dark ages. I'll take Mangini over them any day.
while this garbage talk of mangini as next coach is just that...garbage...there are 2 instances i've noticed in jim harbaugh press conferences which caught my eye

these 2 instances could speak to some sort of rift/power struggle within the 9ers org between him and baalke. i've never heard harbaugh EVER contradict baalke or state something as this

1) eric wright trade..harbaugh said u have to ask baalke about that (as if he wasn't involved in it)..why even give this impression to the media

2) coming out to the media and saying terrell brown needs to be taken care of...(again another rub against baalke's domain) i saw zero upside to harbaugh saying this to the media, he could've just said it to terrell brown himself

those 2 made it very curious.

hope its not something that pesters and ruins our chemistry/vibe in bldg

any gm that admires mangini as a leader of men is a gm who learned his craft from how-to books.
top coaches and gm's need charisma and "it" factor. mangini lacks both; and an admiring gm would lack both, also.
As a veteran player gets on in age, he loses his patience for rah-rah rituals that he knows are worthless. Grown men with refined football skills do not need to be goaded and harangued. Football is brutal enough without someone yelling at you. And if you make it to the NFL, you're a self-starter. It isn't high school. You aren't dealing with children. Nobody told that to Mangina.


Holy crap, I want this tool off this team now.
I think Mangini is mostly consulting the offense on what defenses will do to stop us and pointing out the weaknesses of our plays. I doubt Harbaugh being a former player himself would let mangini ruin his locker room

If even half of this is true, I don't want that douchebag piece of garbage within 20 miles of team headquarters, let alone walking around the building barfing out his b******t.

Hopefully, Harbaugh has him on a leash.

First off, that is a great read, and thank you for posting it.


Second, WHAT THE HELL? Man, some of that s**t is just wayyyyy out there:


"The night before the game, I check in to the hotel and go down to the meal room. Again, the food is amazing. I am blown away by it. There are artisan chefs stationed around the room creating made-to- order delicacies: everything you can imagine. Pastas, Mexican food, omelets, salads, a variety of roasts, meats, grains, fruits, breads, cookies and pies. It makes Denver's food selection look like the HealthSouth cafeteria. After dinner is our team meeting. And here comes Mangini again, same smarmy look on his face, same paranoia in the crowd. Only now I'm among them. I have notes scattered around my lap, too. My heart is racing. Please don't call on me please don't call on me. He calls on a few guys and has them stand and answer more arbitrary questions about the Titans' defensive tendencies and historical success running certain coverages and substitution packages and, holy s**t! It's embarrassing. I breathe a sigh of relief when he concludes the question-and- answer portion of the show and moves on.

Then he motions to a young man in army fatigues standing in the corner of the room and introduces him as an Iraqi war veteran. Coach wants him to say a few words to us. The football-as- war metaphor is an old motivational tactic. I have heard it evoked many times in my life. But not like this.

The vet tells us his story. He lost three friends and both of his legs in a roadside bomb attack the previous year. You can hear a pin drop. He's an impressive man, an impressive kid, really. But like me, he seems confused as to why he is here, addressing a room full of professional football players the night before a preseason game. It soon becomes apparent why he was brought here. Mangini starts peppering him with leading questions intended to strengthen the validity of his own mantras, trying to draw an honest parallel between the bomb that killed his friends and the following evening's preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. The soldier sees what Mangini is doing and steers away from it, choosing instead to speak candidly about what he had learned, not what Mangini had hoped he learned.

After a few cringeworthy questions from the audience, class is dismissed. I make a beeline to my room, where I lock myself behind the double bolt and scribble furiously in my notebook. This is some outlandish s**t. And I don't want to forget it."


This is almost too sickening to even comprehend.

Hopefully we have him locked in a room somewhere; near a bathroom, so people can run to it and puke if need be.
I'm not concerned with Mangini. There have been stories about how he alienates the locker room, but it won't matter here. Harbaugh is in complete control.

It also appears that Mangini's interaction is primarily with the coaches. He consults with them, the coaches take his expertise into account when forming their gameplans, and they coach the players.

I don't see Mangini having close contact with the players. That's what the coordinators and positional coaches are for.
