Why Harbaugh, Why?

Written By Boris Krutiy


First and foremost, it is very difficult to concentrate on the new talent coming into the NFL when all people want to talk about around here and in the media is the 49ers and Harbaugh’s souring relationship. It came to a head last week when the Browns reportedly had a strong trade offer on the table with the 49ers that would send Jim Harbaugh to the Browns in return for a draft picks and cash. I am assuming that the picks were high or plentiful or both and this trade came very close to being completed. Here is my opinion on the matter… If Harbaugh wants to leave, then go and dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. You are in a prestine situation where you are leading a talented team fully packed and ready to make a push for the Superbowl every year. What do the Browns have? They have Josh Gordon and a pretty good defense that is strong. But they lack a lot of talent on the field. Do you really think that Harbaugh will be successful when he does not have the talent on the field, doubtful!

Also, the fact that he is acting so greedy and forcing a renogotiation/extension issue 2 years before his contract is up speaks volumes of his character, or lack thereof. In fact, these talks started halfway through last season so it was more like 2.5 years left on his contract. What is he thinking? Dumb move if you ask me! I am sure that Jed York will sign him and this will all be in the past but I would also not be surprised if Jed says screw you, coach out this year and we will talk after the 2014-2015 season at which time he either pays him the big bucks (only happens if we win the Superbowl) or kicks him to the curb after a lengthy search for the next 49ers coach that will continue to motivate and lead this team into the postseason year after year. This team is built on the players on the field and the coach only has so much to do with it. Most of the coaching is done by the offensive and defensive coachs anyway!
