Will Harbaugh be next?

With all these arrests I can't help but think of what Vince Lombardi would do. Actually I do know. He'd kick everyone's ass then kick them off the team then kick them out the door. Literally. They'd have a shoeprint imprint the size of Bigfoot permanently etched on their behind.

But to be truthful I don't think anything like this would ever happen to a Lombardi team. He demanded excellence. He demanded commitment. He demanded respect for himself and respect for others. He wouldn't have put up with bongs & shots & drunken fools.

In most organizations the staff follows the leader. It's about as basic as a nursery rhyme. Guidelines are set. The law is laid down. You (the staff) can tell if there's flexibility or not. Some coaches are a bit loose, they're 'players coaches', they tolerate more, and others have a zero tolerance policy.

A simple question is, does anyone think Bill Walsh would have put up with this s***?

In my mind the train is following the locomotive and every day another car comes off the track. Guns, drugs, DUI's, threats (airport hoax), possible date-rape, other weapons, hit and runs etc. The list is almost becoming a paragraph. You can't tell me 'the message' to the players regarding behaviour in the off-season is exactly the same from organization to organization. Obviously some coaches put more of an emphasis on it than others. It's a shame the Niners players are playing follow the leader who hasn't emphasised strongly enough the repercussions.

Screaming, negative motivation (Harbaugh's style) only lasts so long. He's already at odds with Baalke. Tom Coughlin learned to take it down a notch but I don't think Harbaugh can. It seems like the 49ers are imploding.
