People already think Harbs is too rah rah. If you don't think Harbaugh has the same analytical football X and O skills as Romo, you're delusional. Even these mediocre coaches have forgotten more about the game than people here.
Romo isn't stupid, but he's not popular because he's a great football mind. He's popular because he can translate that into a way that the masses can enjoy. He's already go the name recognition. And he has dated hot blonde women. He's got all the cache of Hollywood and with an actual football brain. And he's not even as right as everyone pretends. If you actually sit and listen to him he's right about 50% of the time.
Romo is dumbing down what he sees on the field significantly from what he says, too. So evaluating his skills as a head coach from what we hear on TV is crazy.
I have a ton of respect for your football mind, Biggsy, but I think this would be a terrible idea.
Those are all fair points. I dont doubt Harbaughs football knowledge. But to think a guy that played QB at an extremely high level as long as Romo did, while really not possessing any great physical gifts, doesnt possess a ton of football knowledge that could translate as a coach, I think it'd be fair to say you're severely underestimating him.
This was just a fun hypothetical question. A lot of people will hate it simply because they dont like Romo. Some just don't like gambling with one of the most important positions in their organization. I'm indifferent to Romo as a person. I think he was a great QB that never will get the credit he truly deserves because of his shortcomings in the playoffs. Very similar to Rivers. As a coach, I honestly think he'd be extremely good. Maybe not as a head coach, but I could see him as an OC.
