Jim Harbaugh Thread - U of M Coach as of 12/30/14

Folk want to equate cheating in the football world to crime in the real world. Two different entities. Since IDGAF what happens to anyone in real life if it doesn't affect me it matters not. If we are found to have cheated to win it tarnishes every and all accomplishments including any Super Bowls. Ask NE and NO! No one cares Ray was in a murder trial because it didn't impact the game on Sunday. He didn't cheat to win so the Ravens Super Bowl wins are respected. NE wins are not. I respect SEA because they didn't cheat in 2013! Had they won in 2012 I wouldn't respect it at all! Jim was talking about cheating not being choir boys!

This! Xs 1000000000000000000000000
NFL Network just had this scroll across their ticker lol

"49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has commemorative statue unveiled at Miami University (Ohio). Harbaugh played defensive back for the Redhawks in the 1980s."

LOL @ stupid NFLN graphics person. Can't even get the right brother. Hey we'll take credit for the statue, thanks!
Keep up the Good work Jim.
How many times have you seen an NFL coach who is so iconic that kids wear costumes evocative of his image?

He should not have said anything about Seattle and the use of performance enhancing drugs.

That is your opinion and in my opinion if it were me I would not have said anything other than to say "F*** them!" But by now we all know Jim and we know that he is a jacka**! Well guess what? He is our jacka** and IDGAF what other teams and their fans think of him. What Jim said was absolutely right but perhaps he should have kept it to himself. I live by the same credo. I don't cheat to win. If I can't get it the right way then I try harder next time. Cheating is not an option and kids today need to know that. I would rather die as a tried failure than a cheat! SEA ended up winning without any PED busts in 2013 so hats off to them but NE and to a lesser extent NO can EAD! To all fans and media that hate on Jim when all he has done is win ... EAD! To our fans that are so worried about what others say and think of us ... get over it! No matter what we do folk will hate on us because of the Bay Area weather, the cities international destination status, the Silicon valley, the world renowned universities, the sport teams championships, the 49ers having the GOAT QB WR S head coach and dynasty. F*** everybody that ain't a Niners fan! I ain't worried about nobody but us!

I am aware that what I said is my opinion.

I do care what other team's fans say or think of the 49ers.

In my opinion, Jim Harbaugh frequently just does not function well with or in the media.

I really do not care if anyone else, fan or not a fan, shares my opinion of Jim Harbaugh's media work.

He never will function well with the media and as a result we will probably continue to see the blowback we received this entire offseason of made up hypotheticals based off "anonymous sources" and falsehoods. I ain't worried because I was warned about Bay Area media right here on the zone and I ain't surprised by anything they write! I just use my own common sense to know what they do and that other team fans are just waiting to hate on us as well. IDGAF! I have in my own lifetime learned to love the hatred because if folk ain't losing sleep hating me I must not be doing anything of relevance to peak their interest in me! This is exactly what's happening to the 49ers right now and we must understand that. I would rather Jim Trent Jed and the 49ers organization function well May 8-10 together than for Jim to function well with Bay Area and national media! F*** them!

You sure are in my book because you give them little to nothing or what amounts to sh**! Plus you give them a hell of a lot of winning football to cover if they so choose!

The lack of professionalism on the part of the media is not Harbaugh's responsibility. The media is going to do what it does.

Harbaugh is the public voice of the franchise.

When he speaks to the media he is representing the organization, not merely himself.

Dealing with the media is part of his job. It is one aspect of his work that needs improving.

He could do a much better job than he has done, although he did seem to improve somewhat last year.

We knew exactly what we were getting when we hired Jim and we hired him anyway! To now ask him to change who he is as a coach and communicating with media seems to be second place to what we really hired him to do ... WIN! He has won just like he did at Stanford at his previous stop while giving the media the cold shoulder there. We knew and we accepted so we need to try to enjoy this winning! Sure it is wishful thinking and probably nice to consider that he could a** kiss the media a bit more but I won't lose sleep over it!

First, I agree he has proven to be a very good coach. The team is winning and in good part because of him.

I have no problem with winning. I like him as a coach--and I hope that he signs a long term deal.

But, I would still like to see improve the passing game.

I do not care how he treated the media while he was at Stanford. In fact, I know nothing about that.

Second, I am not asking or suggesting that he kiss the media's butt.

Kissing the media's butt would not be very professional and it might even be worse than what he does now.
Between kissing butt and what he does now, I would take the now.

I would just like to see him improve the way deals with the media. I also believe old dogs can learn new tricks.
