    LOL.

    Maybe try a slightly more reputable site next time.

    I'll help you out.

    Harbaugh was a ST's and DB coach at Morehead in 1988. From 1989-1996 he was the ST coach at Cincinnati (college). In 1997 he was the ST and DB coach at Indiana. From 1998-2006 he was the ST's coach in Philly, in 2007 he was the ST and DB coach in Philly. So yes, 19 years as a ST's coach.

    No one is saying anything negative about Pat Fitzgerald. I don't know a thing about him as a coach. The point is that you're dismissing a highly accomplished and well respected coach (Toub has been interviewed for HC positions several times in the past) based on nothing by his ST background.

    You're correct that there's something "idiotic" going on here, but it's not considering Toub.

    Just my observations of Jim on the sidelines, I say a big NO. I can remember him jumping up and down and throwing temper tantrums on the sidelines when things did not go his way. I don't like him.

    they're thinking one huge ego in the building is enough. it'll be someone down to earth, unassuming, like mccarthy.

    Yeah I tend to agree with you. But I get why some people are willing to overlook that given how many games they won in SF.

    And why can't a ST coach make a good HC? Just out of curiosity?

    The desperately needed a receiver, and Cooper has made an impact for them.

    Unfortunately Green Bay appears to be more than one-player-away from being a contender, so I'm not sure a quick-fix is in order.

    I was always under the impression that he walked into a team with a strong roster and left when that roster started to come apart.

    Definitely not a quick situation in GB. But adding thru free agency would be a help for speeding up the recovery process

    Sure-- the talent was really good. However, he still went 36-11-1 in his first three seasons and went to a Super Bowl with Colin Kaepernick. His down season in 2014 was still 8-8. He can coach. But he's also nuts.

    Heh, amen to the nuts part. I just don't see him as a good fit here. More a personality thing than coaching ability.

    I hope we get an intelligent coach. Somebody innovative that also has his pulse on what all his coaches are and are not doing. Someone who actually has a plan and is able to shift gears when things don't work out perfectly. During a game and/or during the season and obviously the off season. Don't really want a duh duh ex player. Can't get Bill Walsh out of my mind. What about the Stanford head coach? I have no idea who. I only hope they choose someone that is smart enough to keep up with a copycat and ever changing league.

    Why no love for Pettine as head coach? He failed at Cleveland, but everybody did. Probably learned a few things. He seems to have the toughness and the defensive players seem to respect and play hard for him.

    Well, that would explain it.
