    Harbaugh is a great coach, but this fact would still remain:

    SF Talent >>>>>>>>>> Miami Talent

    I mentioned this here the other day. Until we get line play like them, we will NEVER really know what we have in Tannehill, or the Trifecta of running backs we currently have, period. As much as people like to blast Ireland for drafting lineman high, look at the two teams in the SB; littered with first and second round picks on the offensive and defensive line. You do the math.

    The difference is that their OL is good after all of those high picks and FA signings. We've dumped stupid amounts of picks and money into our OL and it still sucks. At one point, we had the higest paid OL in the league and it still sucked.

    His whole family isnít out in the Cali. His sister lives in my town. I watch football with Jim Harbaughís brother-in-law every Sunday. Interestingly, he told me a couple of weeks ago that he tried to convince Jim to take the Miami job, mainly because of the income tax savings he would receive, but there were a few factors that guided him to remain out west. A) Obviously, not having to uproot his family was huge. B) SF had their offer on the table first. Hinting that Ross was too little too late. C) Ross was not passionate in his pursuit whatsoever. He went on to explain this last bit by saying that he was present during the much talked about flight out west of Ross and Ireland. He said that Ireland came off as uninterested and that Ross didnít seem as though he really wanted him as the HC. He said that he (the bro-in-law) personally met with a couple of different GMís and owners and that Ross came off as the least interested in Jimís services of the group. D) Ross didnít let Tony go before pursuing him. He said it spoke volumes on what type of owner he would potentially be working.

    Iím not trying to Ross or Ireland bash with this. Lord knows there are plenty of those posts around here. Iím just regurgitating what was said to me from, what I feel, is a very credible source. After all, who has better insight than the man who breaks bread with Harbaugh on holidays?

    Not to mention our idiot owner and gm did not create an opening for him to take( it just slipped their mind lol)
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    Ross was played by Harbaugh who had no intention of coming here if he wanted to stay married as his wife was adamantly against a relocation. Beyond that, this SB scenario worked out just like Harbaugh had hoped (well at least til the end) as he surely didnt want to have to play his brother for a conference championship for the right to advance to the SB. Factor in the likelihood he had no desire to compete in Belicheat's division and the probability of Jim Harbaugh landing here was between non-existent and nil.

    That's not to say that fledgling owner Ross didn't screw up by letting Harbaugh dupe him into using the Fins as extra leverage with the 49ers.. or look stoopid along the way doing so. He did. But by the same token, while I think he also screwed up by pursuing Coach Mediocre after he was kicked to the curb finally by Bud Adams in TN, his instincts proved to be right pursuing Harbaugh. Likewise, harkening back to a debate we had, Ross's instincts were right in stepping in to stop the Orton signing folly. He apparently knew what many of us here did and almost all the Broncos County board members did about "3 and out Orton." So Ross gets props for that (while Ireland and probably even more so Morono receive demerits).

    And then you throw in the terrible preparation and in-game coaching. There is no defense.

    From all accounts Harbaugh money was going to be the same with or without us but back to the point. You dont try to talk a guy into coaching a team that has no vancancy thats unprofessional and most respected guys would not take an offer with that in place.
