Who is Jim Harbaugh?

195 posts in this topic

when asked if JR was interested: “I’m sure he's a nice man, I’d be happy to talk to him. I have not thought about talking to him as a head coach…. But I would be nice and cordial to him if I saw him.”

Interpret that statement however you'd like, it still equals ineptitude on Richardson's part

It wasn't ineptitude. It was JR acting pissy because Harbaugh didn't respond to the overtures we apparently made, whether serious or not.

And although I don't want to get dragged into this mess, FP, you are muy loco when it comes to JH. If Harbaugh were to magically leave San Fran for different horizons, he would be at the top of every hiring GM's list. Well, maybe not Jerry's. Harbaugh might expect more than $3 million a year.

PS: Before everyone chimes in about Fox being highly paid, that was only after he had achieved success inside the organization. That is not the same as being willing to pay big bucks to bring in a new guy. Once Seifert failed, I think JR decided he would never pay a coach top dollar until he proved he could be successful with our team. That is just my opinion of course.

part of the reason that i stayed in that conversation so long was just how funny FP was/is about harbaugh. dude's like a rabid chihuahua with that.

how much are we paying RR compared with other teams?

Off the top of my head, Rivera's on a 4 year deal for about $11 million. I think Chip Kelly just signed a 5 year deal for $6+ million a year.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Edit: Just found Harbaugh's deal. $25 million over 5 years. And below is an interesting article from Grantland that compares his value to a team with certain players/coaches including our own Charles Johnson.

Keep in mind that it was widely reported Harbaugh would ONLY take the SF gig, so maybe the "who is Jim Harbaugh" comment came after the Panthers contacted him and he said no thanks.

I hear from someone in the business that he has 2 more years max before he's fired. Can't say who...I have to protect my sources.

LOOOL dem sour grapes

lemme juxtapose that little theory with this quote:

Leader of men showing his players the proper way to respond when things don't go your way.

As opposed to JR, who's a fuging quitter and acts like we never even wanted Harbaugh in the first place
