Personally, I love the way Harbaugh is content to play the heel and ruffle feathers around the league. He doesn't suffer fools gladly, and he has the results to back up that attitude. If you can win football games with a noodle-armed quarterback like Alex Smith, you're a damn good football coach. The 49ers seem a bit like a throwback to a different era. You can't run the ball on them, they play field position football, and they hit you hard and force you to make mistakes. I'm not sure they have enough firepower to advance very far in the playoffs, but it honestly wouldn't surprise me if they upset New Orleans. Harbaugh is both a motivator and a tactician. I think he's going to be a great coach in the NFL for a long time, and you can see why there was a bidding war for his services a year ago.
