Jim Harbaugh: Double the winner of Mike Nolan, Mike Singletary!

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today, CK brought up a good point in the "Appreciating this era of Niner football" FanPost. Heading into the 2014 season, Jim Harbaugh has surpassed the combined win total of Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary. In seven combined seasons, the Mikes combined for 36 total wins. Jim Harbaugh has 36 regular season wins, and an additional five playoff wins to give him 41 in his career.

I don't think it's a huge revelation that Jim Harbaugh has done better than Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary, but it's still fun to celebrate it. Given how awful things got during the Mikes era, I'm always down for finding a reason to celebrate Jim Harbaugh.

It also provides me an excuse to point to my current favorite NN FanPost. I moved it to the front page last week, but in case you missed it then, it's called "A cult of failure". It is an over the top troll-ish piece. I'd say it's satire, but given the user's history, I'm pretty sure he was serious with the FanPost. And really I think it has to be viewed as a serious FanPost to be truly appreciated.

But really this is just about enjoying where this 49ers team currently stands. They still have work to do. They have not yet reached the mountain top. But they're in a position to win the whole thing, and heading into any season, that's all you can really ask for. The team heads into 2014 training camp with some questions, but a lot of potential answers. And heck, it could be 2007, or 2008, or 2009, or 2010 again. This team needs to bring home a Lombardi Trophy before we as fans can be completely happy, but for now, I can live with where the team is at.
