Mangini's Mess

If there's a power struggle, Harbaugh needs to be kept and Baalke shown the door. Baalke seems to be a very good GM and evaluator of talent (Jenkins notwithstanding) but it's Harbaugh who's made the team come together and perform.

That said, not sure I believe Mangini is an heir apparent to Harbaugh. Great Xs and Os mind, and hopefully he learns how to be a HC from Harbaugh. What did Mangini in was his schooling under Belichick and taking that to another level on a young, bad team in Cleveland. It's always a fine line between being disciplined and being an unbearable taskmaster.
I'm not so sure our 2/3 offense looked very prepared against the Bronco crowd the line game plan.

The QB s*cked because there was no pocket to look good in.

Even 1st string -- I was a little surprised at Davis whiffing on Miller.

The rollouts were nice when kap was in.

Many tackles whiff on Von Miller.

True. Do you think we looked disorganized? Result of sub par performance, planning, or is that just how it goes preseason?

It's like if Charles Manson was a football genius, and we consulted with him to help our team. NO THANKS. I don't want a person of that CALIBER around the building at all.
i bet even at his age, when he gets ramped up, he could give a helluva pre game pep talk to the team about us vs them

True story, my mom dated him before he went to LA and did all that crazy stuff...the running joke in my family is I am "Charlie's boy"

Evaluating a team based upon preseason games is a fools errand.

Sure. I get that. But, you know, the players aren't the only ones whose feet are in the fire during preseason. The staff has a few corrections to make as well: getting plays in on time, toning down the variaty of looks, matching up talent on defenders better, maybe mixing in some new looks on D.

How did we do there? I didn't see the game only highlights. I notice we beat Denver in the penalty department.

hey dont shoot the messenger just something I heard from my sources deep within the organization.

There is no possible way that is true. I'm hoping you're kidding. Moving on, wow, Mangini sounds like a real dick!

i dont think he's kidding, Jed York has already came out and said if JH doesn't get us a super bowl within the next 2 years he will be gone. They brought in Mangini to get acclimated with the 49ers org, so he could take over

I'd be furious..

Btw have a link for the York statement. Doesn't sound like him at all and has me feeling like this is a vs post/staement.

First game of preseason always gonna have penalties. Players are rusty.

That was arguably the greatest spin move I've ever seen
The signing of another ex-brown just adds more proof that Mangini is now calling the shots for his eventual take over for Harbaugh.

and mangini is a reptilian
Its the Cleveland Browns... who's the last guy that did any good with that franchise? Belichick .. some places are just horrible, no matter who the front office people or personnel are
