Well, we’ve seen more inspiring efforts but I get that fans are testy. The stakes have been raised and along with it the expectations.
As far as the quarterback situation, here’s the deal. If I were heading on vacation I wouldn’t trust Coach Harbaugh to water my plants and feed my goldfish. They’d all die. But I do trust him to handle the quarterback position. Even if you forget about his track record everywhere else, he’s earned your trust with what he did with Jake Rudock – remember that? So chill, go feed your pet and let Harbaugh handle the QB.
More importantly it was gorgeous out there Saturday, and here are a few sights and sounds:

The Fab Fiver and #77 were honored for their recent induction into the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame. Jalen’s teammate Jimmy King was also on prem supporting his man JR5. BTW – if they have a creepy-looking-mannequin Hall of Fame but here’s my nomination:
Decals. Dr. Sap killed it with his helmet stickers this week.

Drink each time you hear “Red Zone” Ahh yes, we’ll be hearing that a lot this week. Thankfully David Brandon’s plan to sell the rights and rebrand it “The Autozone Red Zone!” fell flat. Thankfully Quinn Nordin’s leg did not.
On Duty. AG Bill Schuette is running for governor and was hanging out and talking shop with a few D-list celebs on the sideline before the game.
Flannel guy has a water bottle jammed in his left pocket but he’s also happy to see you.
Saline Car Wash is hiring: I spotted a stadium sideline usher asking Mrs. Jim Harbaugh for her credential. I’m not exactly sure what was said but methinks he quickly recognized his mistake and moved on to
harassing helping photographers.
EVERITT RULES! What, this guy doesn’t rule? He’s asking for your help…
He’s a Key West guy, and Irma left the area in a shambles. We don’t even know the extent yet. Here’s his GoFundMe page, he’s gathering money for gift cards for the locals. I’m in – you should too.
Permission to Buzz the Tower(s) – We’ve had our share of pregame fly-overs but don’t they take on special meaning when we’re playing Air Force?
