Golden Nuggets: Win Like Harbaugh's Khakis

Monday, November 24, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

We haven't had a discussion about Jim Harbaugh's wardrobe lately, so I felt this was an appropriate time to bring it up again. Game after game we see him in his standard khaki's which has become his "uniform". The thing about those pants is that they are not very stylish, even ugly to look at for some, and definitely not very flattering to the coach's physique. They do have one job and one job only, and they are extremely good at doing it—covering the man's britches.

The 2014 49ers have the look of these khakis. The team been inconsistent throughout, and looking very awkward even when they do make plays that lead to wins. But here they are on another 3 game winning streak and are at the same record they were at this same time last year, 7-4.

I've given up hoping that this team's identity will still change in time for the playoffs. I've completely accepted that this is a team that will win by playing top-notch defense, and an offense that will do just enough to win, regardless of how good or bad the opponent is. That is this teams identity and I hope that in each remaining "one-game season" they play, they do enough just to win every time.

Now it looks like the writers were busy today so let's see what they have for us...
