"One source with inside knowledge of the team says that Harbaugh's act has worn thin within the locker room, particularly amongst some key 'face of the 49ers' sort players," Killion writes. "While the group is winning, that is not a problem. However a number of losses might expose a widening rift."
Ought to we be stunned by this? No, not really. For starters, if you've received the smoke of the trade rumors with the Browns popping up around the combine, you're going to get the fire that is rumors about 49ers gamers being sad. It comes with the territory.
And secondly, it's exhausting to think about that Harbaugh's act does not wear thin on a few of the players in the locker room.
However you know what doesn't wear skinny? Profitable. And beneath Harbaugh the Niners win like crazy. They're 36-11-1 in his three seasons teaching in San Francisco, good for a whopping766 winning proportion.
The 49ers have been to 3-straight NFC Championship games, they're about to open up a brand new stadium in Santa Clara and so they'll host Super Bowl L after the 2015 season in that very stadium.
There's plenty of explanation why they should desire a coach who does nothing however win to stay round regardless of how people within the locker room may reportedly really feel.
