I agree that Pete is a good coach, and that what he has done is impressive. But I disagree that what Harbaugh has done isn't impressive. It is
impressive. Pete & Schneider had to pretty much completely rebuild, but that doesn't take anything away from what Harbaugh has done as a coach.
I didn't say Harbaugh hasn't impressed at all. I am just sick of Niners fans treating us like some little brother. I don't know if it was this thread or another, but one Niner fan said that we were being held back by our coach and Russell Wilson. I just completely disagree. Pete has really put this team together along with John Schneider, and he has installed a complete philosophy.
Harbaugh had unique talent in place already to work with. For them it was mostly mental. Pete had no talent hardly at all to work with. I've had questions every draft. I thought K.J. Wright was a mistake and had four or five guys still on the board I would have rather had.
Mostly, my irritation on this subject stems from going down to Frisco and losing in a dog-fight and the Niner fans telling us what to fix with out team. Our team is fine. I love what is going on here and I would not trade rosters with the Niners (not to say there aren't guys like Willis, Aldon Smith, Justin Smith, Bowman, etc. I would take).
Anyway, long response, but I definitely am not taking away anything from Harbaugh, but I think Pete has been more impressive. I think Harbaugh is a good X's and O's coach, but his actions on the sideline are embarrassing. Pete is rah-rah, and national pundits kinda chide him about it, but you can see our guys are responding to it.
