Trent-Jim relationship issues? (pure conjecture...reading the tea leaves)

The most credible source ever, Mike Florio, just wrote an article on PFT claiming that the tension between Baalke and Harbaugh is real and that this is just the beginning of the end for Jim's tenure as head coach, in so many words and it came from a "league" source. Stupid lame attempt to restart some kind of controversy because it has lost steam and is fizzling out. Mike Florio, biggest f***ing douchebag ever. I'd like to see him get into an MMA cage with Harbaugh so he can kick his everlivin' ass.

Florio is such a f**king sleezball

Wow - everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but some of you simply have very unrealistic expectations. The draft is an art not a science. It is impossible to always be right about who is talented and who will put in the work once they are paid NFL money. You are trying to figure out not what a player is, but what he will become after a few years of coaching. Sometimes really talented, hard working players get injured, sometimes guys straight up fool you ala AJ Jenkins. But NOBODY hits on all their draft picks. Trent has hit as often or more often than anyone the last few years, drafting in the middle of the round in 2011 and the very end of the round in 12' and 13'. As others have said, we have made an absolute killing in FA. Paying under market value for valuable contributors and letting the guys who other teams were willing to overpay go elsewhere. Show us a GM with a better overall track record that is available (or even one that isn't) and we'll go get him.

As long as the problem is that we been a hair short of the SB in 11', winning it in 12', and contending for it in 13' then yes, he is the problem. Complaining about our GM is kind of like Denver fans complaining every time Manning throws an incomplete pass. There has be someone better at doing the job before you replace an employee. A GM is a ridiculously hard job, and Trent is very good at it. Please count me as one who likes like having this type of "problem".

Well said...way over the top unrealistic expectations...I would guess that every franchise save a very select few would absolutely leap at the possibility of hiring Trent Baalke. Don't forget, he also brought Harbaugh in for $5M a year.

Florio is such a f**king sleezball

You'll notice during holiday times & many Saturdays, Florio works on his own. All his help has time off. It's just him working today on PFT.

So that's when you'll also notice he reaches to generate content, trying to keep web traffic going during the quieter times during the year.

So today, Florio is sitting at home, desperately looking for something to write about. So he's just recycling the 49ers-mini-no-controversy from earlier this week and saying "Anything is possible."

He does this all the time. Favre to return? Anything is possible and plans can change. Saban to leave Alabama? Anything is possible and plans can change. Jim Harbaugh wants to stay with the 49ers? Anything is possible and plans can change.

The amount of articles he writes that have the word "yet" in them kill me. Like... "No quarterback controversy in Chicago, yet." It's hilarious... dude makes a living getting web traffic off of never-ending hypotheticals.

TK is a hack. He's the new Skip Bayless. He does and says stuff just to get attention. He may have something from time to time but he'll always skew it the way he wants the story told.

completely wrong but we can agree to disagree...

Tim's reporting on this new regime has been the most on point

also, it wasn't a coincidence that early this season it was Tim who asked harbaugh about an extension at the press conference, he has sources he's the first one who got wind of this

he's been very very tapped in to this regime

Can you honestly say that TK doesn't tend to skew his stories in a direction that he wants it to go? That is the problem most people have with his writing, in that he forms a conclusion and then only cites supporting material that strengthen his position. That's not journalism, that is editorializing. He is not as guilty as either of the Cohns, but you have to be weary of reporting by someone who generally emphasizes controversy. You certainly have not seen stories in the past about everything going well, because that is not news. The problem with reporters who focus on negatives (ie. TK and the Cohns) is that they set themselves up only to say "I told you so" if they are occasionally right. You certainly never hear them say "oops" after any of the multitude of times that they are wrong. Florio only perpetuates it because he recycles news, he doesn't report it. In Florios case, you can tell when he has a personal interest in a story because it either has a legal angle (he is a lawyer) or it has controversy and he can talk about it on NBC Sports Network. Don't get me wrong, I love Pro Football Talk, but I take what I read there with a grain of salt.

Completely agree. Best recent example is last week's suspension of Browner. Florios articles were basically pleas to the Browner camp to sue the NFL. The NFL said FU ans upheld the suspension. Since then, Florio: crickets.

I really doubt that a duo as successful as TB and JH would have as much tension as is reported. Making up news is annoying and should be illegal but I know it never will be. I'm sorry I clicked on the article.
Creative tension? No, comepetive attitudes? Yes. -Remember, the first week going into this era involved those two bloodying their knees up from racquetball.

Sticking point in Jim Harbaugh's contract-extension talks with #49ers earlier this year were "outside endorsements," per @JayGlazer

What does that mean? The 49ers want to limit his ability to market himself?
I dont know why people are worried about the Harbaugh/Baalke relationship. Eddie D and Walsh used to scream at eachother all the time. Walsh almost got fired a bunch of times, and John McVay had to calm Eddie down.

Tension and disagreement doesnt always mean dysfunction. Were still winning.

better to bloody the knees battling it out then from being on their knees blowing each other telling the other one how great they are.

If JH wants to do Viagra commercials then its a "sticky" point.
