Every new head coach gets a honeymoon period.
For 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, the honeymoon period could last a while considering his track at Stanford and the difficult situation he’s been handed as a first-time head coach in the middle of a lockout.
Harbaugh could make one decision, however, that would test the patience of all 49ers’ fans right away: He could bring back Alex Smith.
Unless Harbaugh could turn Smith into a winning quarterback sooner than later, the fans could revolt in droves. Matt Maiocco of CSNCalifornia.com joined PFT Live to talk about the 49ers’ quarterback dilemma and whether he thinks Smith will really return.
