What happens in the locker room and how he leads his players has nothing to do with what he says to the local media...


Do you believe I don't know this?

He says he knows x's and o's. Prove it and be quick about as his record to date indicates the opposite.

All I know is a self-confident person has results and neither needs to complain or explain. He does both as the results do not speak for him.

i'm going to judge him on a whole season. he doesn't get to cherry pick which part of the season to be judged. you go to the playoffs based on a whole season.

if he wants people to judge him on his successes, then he should be more successful.

things went better the end of the season, but that was the same story from the year before and we went backward. until he proves otherwise, that is his trend. that is his legacy as a HC. i don't care how much those players love him or if they don't give up. winning is all that matters. not just part of it, the whole of it. you don't have to be perfect, but you better be able to pull out a winning season.

i feel a bit better about him heading into next year, but i am still far from convinced he's the right man for the job. if this team doesn't come out of the gates the way it ended the season last year he needs to be gone.

he sounds like he's trying really hard to make a case that he knows what he's doing, but to continue to say that he could have used some help from more experienced coaching and doing nothing to bring any in shows that he's a hard case. it's not enough to say i could use some more help and then do nothing to get it.

he wants people to feel better about him being the coach here? win.

Unbelievable

And we have him for another season with a downgraded offensive coaching staff!

I for one believe in Ron. not sure what I'm basing that on but he's our coach, like it or not.

LOL at Rivera saying Harbaugh did good because he had good players already and he didnt


FWIW there is some significant truth to that


Not to take away from Harbaugh being a great coach

coaches that can win, do win.

It didn't sound to me like he was making excuses, he was stating the facts.

excuses are often based on fact and then spun to try and explain failure
