    "Al Davis thought all owners were dilettantes with a new toy. He said to me many times through the years that owners are often the problem with their franchises, that too many of them think they can run things when they cannot, and the teams that succeed are the ones where the owner hires the best people he can and turns the game over to them."

    I know this thread is about Harbaugh but since you bring Gannon up, here's my 2 cents.

    I don't think he's burned any bridges with the Raiders, he's made some critical comments but they only stated the truth, unlike Warren Sapps comments which were intended to slander the organization.
    It's not the fact that Gannon was a QB that makes him one of my favorite choices for head coach, it's his work ethic and overall leadership. Who knows if Montana, Elway, Marino or Namath would be good at coaching they never went in that direction.
    Still, I think Gannon is satisfied with his television gig, he still gets to be involved with the NFL but doesn't put in the 80+hr work weeks.

    Harbaugh on the other hand has taken the coaching route and he's establishing himself as a successfull college coach. We all know that being successfull in the NCAA doesn't equate to success in the NFL but he's been a coach with the Raiders, he's currently in the Bay Area.
    I see it as having a strong possibility, it just depends on if he feels he's ready to take that next step.

    We should hire the top guy first.....Al's got to give in and get a GM to take care of on the field things.

    Dude at Houston was the Broncos back-up for years...but thats beside the point.



    I'm all for Jim Harbaugh.
    Love the idea.




    What would be great is if Al Davis thought, "Hell. I get so much **** about coaches that I'll let him pick all his own guys."

    Then I woke up.

The way Parcells does. The way Cowher does. The way Belichex does. Get the point? Another UNPROVEN college coach and this franchise is doomed forever. Guaranteed.

    I think you are the only one that is clueless man. lol at proven nfl coach

    New write up about old rumor. Harbaugh would be a good choice in MHO.
    So what you are saying is Harbaugh is a better coach than Saban, Pete Carrol, Petrino, Steve Spurrier, Butch Davis, Lou Holtz, Dennis Erickson and so many other coaches that succeed in college but have failed miserably in the pro's.

    NO MORE COLLEGE COACHES!

    harbaugh was a QB coach in the NFL. He has spent way more time in the NFL than college he is an NFL coach coaching in college I think he could be a Jim Zorn type

    Whoever the coach is, how about we get a GM with REAL power, that can evaluate and bring in talent for that coach...allow him to bring in ALL his own staff, and allow him to execute HIS gameplan.

    I can dream....
