equals joke of the league...That would mean we went from physical football to making a match made in heaven espn headline. I DONT want Luck, it just feels like Matt Stafford/ Alex Smith. Promote someone from within the organization to coach, fire davidson.

Our personnel/system hasn't produced a playoff win in 5 years.

Stay the course!

Physical football has really worked out for us lately. Not having a great passing game is a good way to take advantage of all the new (but lame) NFL rules that are catered to the passing game.

You guys should really do just maybe a single fuging once of research before you post.

Stanford sure had a soft program when Toby Gerhart was pounding the rock for them.

Harbaugh runs a system where our backs could excell and Luck would be at home making play action reads.

I'm pretty sure you can pass the ball effectively and still play physical football.

You mean an upgrade from 70's style football to a real offense?

got it that would be so awful.

Alex Smith, and Stafford to a point, were the number one overall basically be default. There was no one else that was perceived to be an elite prospect at QB at the time, and those two teams desperately needed to draft a QB. It would be similar to drafting Ryan Mallet with the first pick if Luck doesn't come out.

And anyone that thinks promoting from within the organization is a good idea needs to be kicked in head.

For the most part I think the package deal probably is silly. There is, however, probably some merit to believing that their existing relationship would help smooth over the transition period assuming that Luck is our QB of choice on his own (duh?) and that Harbaugh is our coach of choice on his own (matter of opinion - I could go either way on this one but I think he's going to make a good HC for someone). If each is our choice on their own why not be happy that there's a potential benefit to having them both?

For Luck's part he's like any draft pick...any one can bust at any time. Given what we've seen of him though he's probably safer than a lot of the others.
