I love harbaugh as a coach. What i dont like is Greg Roman and spanos ownership. Harbaugh has an excellent qb and some good young talent - he will make some noise, I expect them to be a very tough team.

AFC is brutal though. I don't anticipate him making a championship run in the first few years. Bengals, jets, Baltimore, chiefs, Miami etc - tough tough conference.

Lucky for them outside of the Chiefs and AFC North they avoid the tough parts of the conference. Also get the NFC South and the Cards. I was dubious on then getting a winning record but with that schedule it's actually possible. Could win 10 games without beating a quality team quite easily.

So if Roman stinks it up, I can see Shane being promoted to offensive coordinator. I know Jim loves Kyle's offense - and Shane is in Kyle's and McVay's coaching tree.

Day was with Staley and the Chargers not the Rams.

He's more of a Martz coaching tree guy.

Sorry I meant Shane Day was under Sean McVay in Washington in 2014.

You have to remember that they gutted the WR talent on that team and Roman runs a very unimaginative offense for the pros. I think Herbert is really good but who knows how he and the WRs will fit in that offense. Itll be 100% built around the run. I think they'll be a solid team but it'll be tough sledding initially is my guess.

Agree. I don't think he can turn the Chargers around as fast as Jim did with the 49ers. But I'd never bet against Jim. He's too good a coach. This time, I think, he has almost as much control over the team as Kyle has with the 49ers (if not more).

I see LA winning 12-13 games and being a day 1 contender, we've seen this script before.

team criteria:

do you have head coach: yes
do you have QB who is FQB: yes
do you have pass rush: Mack and Bosa, yes
do you have OL: R Slater with Alt, yes
do you have anything else: I like the physical running of Edwards and especially the do everything safety James.

they check most every single box,

More speaking things into existence I see.

Mack needs to show he can sack more than just the Raiders QBs and Joey needs to be healthy

Agree with you both, a lot of things have to happen for a 12+ win season for Jim, having said that - there's already a good core of a playoff team in place for that to make it likely to happen. I just want KC in pain going into the playoffs - just like us in previous years, and Jim's just the right guy to inflict that kind of pain on KC and Patrick.

He had a better core here facing a much weaker conference. Playing the NFC south is the only saving grace to a winning record for them.

Well keep in mind Seattle wasn't chump change back then. They won a lot of games. KC is kind of that team for Jim. Jim still was able to reach the playoffs and superbowl with Seattle being an obstacle. KC is a different animal, of course, but I think KC is being over reliant on Patrick - in a sense - under Andy's offensive scheme.

Unlike Kyle and Jim who base both their offenses under a strong run game, I think Reid is more of a pass first team and for good reason. One ding to Patrick (say 4 games out with a sprained something) can be the difference between making the playoffs and preparing for next season.
