This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Ian Williams would beg to differ by sactophillycnxn
Had a quick chat with him 2 years ago during the Niners bye week. I could tell the way he talked about Harbaugh he loved playing for him. Most of the team actually didn't mind his antics since it just showed how much he loved his job and wanted to win. Look up Anthony Davis' twitter feed to also show how he feels about him.
As a Niner fan, the losses this year sucked given the high expectations. But expectations were unreasonable given Bowman was going to be out most of the season (he ended not playing a single game) and Aldon Smith was out for the first 9 games. To add to that, Willis and Williams ended up being out for half the year, Iupati, Davis and Kilgore all missed time (and had to be replaced with Jonathan Martin and a rookie center) which led to a bunch of sacks.
I do blame Harbaugh and the front office for going away from the read option offense to protect their $100M QB investment and appease the primadonnas on the team (Crabtree, Vernon Davis). It's pretty ironic that when the season was done and they opened up the offense for Kaepernick, he ran for over 140 yards. Niners should have ran the same offense Seahawks do.
