No, that is exactly my point. He got fired because he went 1-11. And yet we are saying Jim Harbaugh is amazing for getting them to 4 and 5 wins. Truth is, if he would have had them playing to their talent level and gotten 4 or 5 wins, JH wouldn't even be coaching there. So Harbaugh took over a team returning the starting QB, RB, and top 2 WRs and did exactly what the last coach should have done. Then he got better from there. I don't think JH is a bad coach, but the ass kissing that goes on from his supporters because he took an underperforming team of 1-11 talent and got them to where they were supposed to be at 4 or 5 wins is a little ridiculous. It would be like if JH comes in next year and wins 8 or 9 games but I say he should be fired because we didn't win the 11 or 12. I mean, we won at least 7, maybe 8 this year and bringing back 19 starters....he needs to win at least 11 or else he sucks.
