what can BROWN do for you?!?
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.
