Would Harbs tolerate Incognito?

The short answer: No, he would not. Locker room cancer Richie Incognito just got suspended by the Miami Dolphins for harassing teammate Jonathan Martin (a former Harbaugh kid from Stanford) with racial slurs and death threats. Add in the extortion of money and his reputation as a dirty player, and it's easy to see why this clown should be banned from the league.

But what makes it even more disturbing is that Martin had notified Dolphins coach Joe Philbin earlier this year of the harassment, but apparently that came to nothing. Now some folks will say, 'Oh Martin should have been a real man and knocked Incognito out cold!' Yeah, real smart. Then Martin gets fined, suspended and is facing assault/battery charges. And there's no guarantee the harassment stops. Then others say, 'this should have been stopped by the team's veteran leadership'. The problem with that is Incognito was voted to the team's leadership council, so any complaints would have gone to him and likely been met retaliation.

So I place a huge chunk of the blame on coach Joe Philbin for not having the spine to end this nonsense.

And when I think how Harbs would have handled it differently, I'm reminded of how he physically stepped in to break up a fight between players during camp this year. And he's punished guys that were cancers in the locker room too.

If anything, a clown like Incognito would never even make it onto Harbs' roster, because Harbs' entire mantra has been about doing what's best for the team, from the time he gave them blue collar overalls, to bringing in motivational speakers, to volunteering together with them - he cares about his players' well-being.

So whose got it better than us? NOBODY
