I haven't been a fan of the 49er's since Walsh left. I'm trying to warm up to Harbough but he keeps one foot in crazy land. Some of his challenges don't seem well thought out and he seems pretty emtional on the sidelines. But his press conferences really make me nuts.
That's me and my my right middle finger that's ~1/2 shorter than it used to be.

My main problem with Harbaugh is that he tries to trick defenses with college level plays in critical situations (I.e. 3rd and 2 within field goal range) that lose 6 yards and take them out of FG range.
He's got to understand that these guys are fast, they rarely get tricked and they can recover better and cover lots more ground than college level kids.

And you're right that some of those challenges are foolish and can hurt them later in the game.

I wonder if these are the people they trust to work on the tarmac.

If so this may not end well for some.

If you get a chance to see "A Football Life: Eddie DeBartolo" on NFL network I highly recommend it.

Quarterbacks today run this way a little, then that way, then dump the ball out of bounds.
There will never be another Fran Tarkenton.

I think he broke it himself.
That was the first time I saw the Falcons play this year and I only got to see the second half. Not a lot of impressive football by either side.

Yeah the Falcons defense sucks. I mean only 5 interceptions, they actually had 6 but one was called back. That was all on Brees.

11-1. I'll take it.

The Falcons will always have a special place in my heart for what they did to the Vikings in the NFC title game back in '98.

They held Brees to less than 400 yards. That is impressive.
It was like watching two guys hit themself over the head with a hammer until one passed out.
I was just hoping to see some good football. I was dissapointed by both teams. The Falcons record seems less impressive to me after that. But like I said. It's the only time I've seen them this year.
