“Day, you magnificent bastard, I read your playbook!”

Win or lose, Jim Harbaugh’s brain is out there somewhere.

Exactly where that is… well, maybe Neil Armstrong knows.

    It’s too early to try and figure out what he is talking about.

    George Patton was a bad bad man and is beloved in Belgique!

    I distinctly remember a scene about air cover in Patton’s movie. Maybe it was just Hollywood.

    To keep his analogies more in sync, instead of Neal Armstrong, perhaps Curtis LeMay or Gabby Gabreski? No need mixing time periods there Jimmy Boy.

    I get it. Patton went into Hell and Armstrong went into the Heavens. So he’s just suggesting something about the duality of man. You know, the Ungian thing.

    It was in the movie, and it’s said that he said this, and it always stuck with me. “I don’t like having to pay for the sam real estate twice”. Has nothing t do with this conversation. I’ve just always love the line and have used it in certain of my life. Attack, attack, attack….

  8. If we’re doing bad WW2 metaphors, I think we’re like the navy in late 1942. We’ve managed to hold off the Japanese but all of our carriers are either sunk or patched together with duct tape and we’re hoping we can hold out till the Essex class becomes operational in 6 months

      With the greatest weapon, the submarine (Daniels) plagued by the faulty MK 14 torpedo (strained oblique).
      Dawgxian, your metaphor makes much more sense than that clown, Harbaugh.


      • Hadn’t thought about the submarine campaign but yeah took some time to get it going. Hopefully, our skippers are becoming more aggressive and the higher ups are paying attention to problems so we don’t have to wait a year and a half

    We need to get Patton’s clergyman and have him pray over darnell, Arik, jt, George, and others.

    For you young guys. If you have not seen the movie “Patton”, do yourself a favor and pick a cold and rainy Saturday in February with nothing to do and watch the movie. Superbly written and acted. George C Scott won an Oscar for it and it was well deserved.

    Great title! Pro Tip Mr. Rommel. Actively serving generals shouldn’t write strategy books. .
