  • Jim Harbaugh as Broncos HC in the future?

    Rumors of Jim Harbaugh being unhappy in SF.

    As Kawakami noted, no one thing really popped up and alerted anyone to a serious rift, but when you get two alpha dogs in a room as Harbaugh and Baalke are, there will be sparks, and they won’t always be good. Harbaugh has always had to cede control of personnel to Baalke, and after two sub-par drafts in a row (San Francisco’s 2012 draft hasn’t produced a single functional starter, and 2013 brought only safety Eric Reid), one wonders if Harbaugh is a bit agitated at the lack of new talent coming in the room. In today’s NFL, recovering from two such drafts is very hard to do, especially with the core of your talent base getting up there in age.

    On Monday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that the divide between the two men has grown so great, San Francisco’s higher-ups (meaning CEO Jed York) may have to choose between the two.

    The men are barely speaking, I’m told, and almost all communication is through email. Harbaugh also has a strained relationship with team president Paraag Marathe, sources said, and he has clashed with many within the organization. It could prove untenable. If anything, the impression I got this week was that the situation there is actually much worse than how it has been portrayed in the media, and helps explain the delay in giving a new deal to the coach, who has two years left on a contract he has outperformed.

      So...a HC has a reputation for grating on his boss' nerves at Stanford, then again in SF. Of course bring him here. What could go wrong?

        He wants control of GM duties as well.

            Good coaches are generally pain in the asses to their bosses.

            Also Stanford and the Yorks were complete laughingstocks in football before Harbaugh showed up and changed it.

              Seems to me he causes to much distraction. Denver doesn't need a circus.

                  I'd be interested in his brother.

                    You mean like the kind of circus and distractions where the players are running wild, partying all week before the Super Bowl?

                      DO IT! And do it with a smile. Harbaugh was Elways first choice anyway. Think what would happen with Harbaugh with Manning.

                        Hmm... So we have a coach who is 34-14 and 3 consecutive division titles and now people want to replace him with a guy who is clashing with every higher up in his current organization to the point where they will pick the GM over him.

                        Oh yeah, that's going to work out real well since Elway isn't giving up control anytime soon.

                          if you wouldn't want him, you're dumb. he's the best coach in the NFL outside of Bellichick

                          but no, it's not happening. if he ever leaves SF, it'll be to get personnel power somewhere else.

                            We already had one power hungry problem child. Harbaugh is markedly better than McDaniels but the Broncos need a team player and Harbaugh is not that.

                              Maybe the implication is that, as Stanford buddies, Elway and Harbaugh would get along in their respective capacities.
