Which is why I can't say Harbaugh, who rubs me the wrong way as a whiny fuck, should get the nod. Easier SOS than the Steelers; rookie QB, granted, but a stout veteran defense, a better OL than ours, and a pretty decent group of RBs.
I come back tot he coordinators that he has around him... Rex Ryan still runs the defense the exact same. They brought in Cam Cameron and he runs the offense (I really wish the Steelers would have made a play for him last offseason.) So Harbaugh really just needs to make sure the team runs in the same direction.
Ironically, I think this also is why Tomlin doesn't get more publicity than he does. The defense is great so they give the credit to LeBeau which is rightfully deserved. The offense is suspect and they might hold Tomlin accountable for that since he hasn't made a change in two years.
Harbaugh has done a good job and I just hope he comes up one win short of this new rookie standard of a Super Bowl for HC and QB... Just one win short would be fine.
