    I was stoked to hear of Harbaugh's hiring. I had high hopes for Singletary but alas...

    I wonder if Harbaugh thinks he can redeem A. Smith or if he'll want to go for a new qb in the draft.

    If it does, it would make me a very happy fan! It's been a rough road for Niner fans this past decade.

    But like I said in my post above, it all depends on retaining the talent we have now. Otherwise we will have to start rebuilding all over again.
    Although, I wouldn't mind picking up Luck when he goes into the draft after one more year at Stanford.

    Now on to the reporting. I'm dismayed by these two sentences ESPN put together in the article you quoted:

    The first sentence comes from Harbaugh himself. Good enough. But the next sentence, which appears to follow from the first, is NOT a statement by Harbaugh! In fact, (if Steve Ross is to be believed), although the Dolphins met with Harbaugh, they did not make him an offer at all! http://links.dolphins.com/C2L/er.asp...IuS39LeTNYvQ$$

    BTW, Ross also said the Dolphins never even spoke to the other coaches that have been linked to them - Cowher and Gruden. Of course, why they wouldn't even speak to Cowher (a proven and highly successful NFL coach) is inexplicable to me if they were willing to speak to Harbaugh.
    Nice catch on the wording there!

    I'm sure Harbaugh's agent(s) threw it out there to get a better deal from the Niners.

    Yes, he has 2 agents...


    Harbaugh used unusual two-agent approach

    Posted by Mike Florio on January 8, 2011, 9:47 AM EST

    Lost in the sudden rise to NFL coaching prominence of Jim Harbaugh is the unique, to say the least, manner in which leverage was built.
    Harbaugh used not one but two agents to negotiate his contract. And not two agents with one firm. Two agents with different firms.
    It’s not unprecedented when it comes to players. Often, two otherwise competing agents come together and work on behalf of — and at the behest of — one client. Rarely if ever does a coach employ agents from different agencies.
    Harbaugh has been represented in the past by Jack Bechta. Superagent David Dunn, however, had become more and more prominent in conjunction with Harbaugh’s leap from Stanford to, eventually, the San Francisco 49ers.
    Though some league and media insiders believe that Dunn handled the situation and that Bechta had no role, it appears that Dunn handled Harbaugh’s NFL search and that Bechta presided over the talks with Stanford.

    With Harbaugh, the puzzle is complete.

    The hard part now is to retain the talent we've put together the last several years.

    Heck, we missed winning the division this season by one friggin game!
    Did I miss something this season. Maybe you believe Joe Montana is coming back to play. I'm pretty sure that the 49ers are in the same boat as the Cowboys when it comes to the quarterback position. They both need upgrades. You can have Tony "I can win any important games" Romo.

    Harbaugh signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the 49ers.

    He made a promise to Stanford Cardinal fans, support the team and he would make them bowl contender.
    He succeeded in that goal in a mere 4 years.

    I just love the guy's attitude. I hope he succeeds in turning the 49ers around.
    Hope it works out for you guys Percy.

    Now on to the reporting. I'm dismayed by these two sentences ESPN put together in the article you quoted:

    Harbaugh insists this move wasn't all about money. He reportedly had an offer for more from Miami.
    The first sentence comes from Harbaugh himself. Good enough. But the next sentence, which appears to follow from the first, is NOT a statement by Harbaugh!

    The Three Stooges. Jerry Jones' ego is way to big to ever admit that he doesn't know what he's doing. Bring back Jimmy Johnson, please!!!

    They didn't call Montana the Surgeon for nothing, i have never seen a QB with a the best offensive team cut apart a teams defence as well has he could.

    We will never see the likes of him again but it still a fresh start, but looking towards next season.
