Not Even Lombardi Can Save Harbaugh
It’s tough times for the team from Santa Clara. 1st and Ten’s Mike Hunt and a gaggle of NFL ‘insiders,’ including Deion Sanders (NFL Network), Trent Dilfer & Chris Mortensen (ESPN) and Jay Glazer from Fox Sports have all reported that the 49ers and HC Jim Harbaugh are going in opposite directions. And who is to blame? Peyton Manning.
According to Glazer and others, Harbaugh lost the locker room in 2012, when the coach was wooing the future HOF QB. The rumor is that incumbent Alex Smith asked Harbaugh if he planned to recruit Manning and he flatly replied, no.
Unfortunately, Harbaugh did travel to North Carolina to meet with Peyton. Now, the players don’t trust Harbaugh and even if the 49ers win the Superbowl, the team is planning for life after the volatile coach. Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.
By the look at this picture, at least Jim has a future in erotica.
