Carroll >> Harbaugh.
He won more championships in college and now in the NFL.
Carroll is smart, he built a team to counter the passing evolution of the NFL and it worked.
C'mon Harbaugh, step yo game up!
Rings matter and at this point. Carroll has one and Harbaugh doesn't. Whether Carroll is the better coach, it's debatable. They both lead two of the best teams in NFL.
Harbaugh have accomplished a lot since coming to the NFL and I would not have wanted anyone else coaching this team maybe for the exception of maybe Belichick the day after Singletary was fired; which was not an option. I remember along with many, many 49ers fans was on the "watch", every damn second waiting for the news that Harbaugh have accepted the 49ers offer. Harbaugh's hire is the best hiring since Walsh/Seifert era.
With that said, Harbaugh and his staff have choked away three potential Lombardi trophy away along with this team. NFCC game against the Giants, they should have pulled out K. Williams and they did not and Giants go on to win. The Super Bowl, they should have ran the ball with Gore a few yards away. Secondly, wasting that time out was a bad call, should have taken that that 5 yrd penalty for delay of game. It allow the Ravens to sit and run out the clock. That time out might have given them another opportunity to come back and win. Lastly, with so little time and knocking on the door in Seattle this NFCC game, Harbaugh should have called a time out since there wasn't much time left anyway and come up with a plan or two for the final kill but they didn't.
Despite three years in roll of Lombardi trophy fails when it mattered most. Harbaugh and his staff is still very good. Now, they just need to get the F**k over the hump when it comes down to all the chips and both teams goes "All In". And if this team and this staff doesn't.....I don't know, somewhere in the pit of my stomach, I'm having this sick feelings the Dallas/49ers era where we got the short end of the stick.
