It doesn't take a rocket scientist to say, "Hey, we should target Boldin, Crabtree & VD 75% of the time in the passing game and continue to use Gore as the bell cow." I don't qualifiy that as coaching up these guys that were already well developed and established as clear-cut all-pro's or PBers. Coaching up a guy is someone like Boone. One move like bringing in Boldin for a 6th rounder is more than Harbaugh and his entire staff have coached up after 3 years (minus Rathman with Miller). Seriously. Maybe you can put CK in that category but he clearly lacks basic mechanics, footwork, vision, etc. That's coaching. Coaching up is also helping to ID a clear-cut vision on offense. Can anyone tell me what kind of offense we run? What's our ID?
But in the end, you are right! Both are men that were married from day 1 and need to work it out. Together, they are an epic team. Baalke is in a tough spot b/c I'm sure he's like us...we love Harbaugh...we don't want him to leave...hell, HE was the one who brought him in...but clearly, there are some $, power and serious issues on offense if we are to obtain #6. So how does he deal with it?
Really? You don't know what kind of offense we run? I thought that was pretty much common knowledge by now. Also no Baalke did not bring Harbaugh in. Jed York is the man responsible for landing Harbaugh.
Together, York and Baalke targeted Harbaugh, the Stanford coach who'd emerged as a favorite for jobs with the Dolphins, Broncos and the University of Michigan. The 49ers interviewed him first, for five hours. DeBartolo called Harbaugh on behalf of his nephew, just to remind him of what happened the last time the 49ers hired a coach from Stanford.http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/9748887/san-francisco-49ers-owner-turned-franchise-stadium-espn-magazine
It was both of them, Eddie also put in a call. You think Harbaugh signed without talking to the GM and asking what types of players he looks for? You think a guy like Harbaugh didn't have Baalke break down the way he drafts and ask about his background?
And no doubt, Jed signed off on it in the end...but make no mistake about it, Baalke and Harbaugh were in the "dark together" for an entire day. Remember that story?
