Is Harbaugh lying or does he mean what he says?

An opinion:

What does Harbaugh really mean when he heaps compliments on his players, coaches, and the 49er organization? In my opinion he means exactly what he says.

He may be exaggerating but he means it. At the moment he says it he is thinking positive thoughts and at that moment believes and means exactly what he says.

Example: “Crabtree has the best hands I have ever seen.”

But, but, but:

Crabtree has dropped too many passes.

Crabtree has not produced like a guy with the “best hands ever” would.

Crabtree has (insert complaint)

I believe Harbaugh is probably thinking about the catches that he has seen Crabtree make in games, or practice, or (film or ?). In his mind Crabtree’s hands are the best, and it is Harbaugh’s job to improve his focus, or concentration, or route running, or technique in getting separation, or (something else).

I do not believe (as one commenter stated) Harbaugh is lying, or blowing smoke, or being disingenuous in any way.

He is just being Jim Harbaugh.
