this team has become a joke off the field. the worst part is watching the fans defend each incident as not a big deal and an isolated incident. individually each incident may not be the end of the world, but when you add them all up it definitely means something. I find it telling that the first 3 picks of the baalke-harbaugh era all have had some sort of incident this offseason with 2 of them being arrested. these guys are more about yolo then they are about being professionals.
As were the Cowboys of the 90s. -What people don't get is that there is a huge ripple effect going on here, it's called 3 straight years of nothing.
-The Pats have also been 3 straight years of nothing (including a Superbowl loss, too), but Pats have a seasoned coach/GM with an amazing track record/cold-business-approach, and he knows how to root players out and replace them like it's nothing.
Whether people want to accept it or not, the blame goes on Harbaugh, his "I'm one of the guys" mentality does not retain much authority, therefore the players feel they have a window of forgiveness. This needs to change.
