Would you trade KC Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles for 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh?
I asked this question on Twitter and found out that people have VERY STRONG OPINIONS on this. The Chiefs fans saying they would not make the trade point out that Andy Reid is a pretty damn good coach in his own right. The Chiefs fans saying they would make the trade point out that a good (great?) head coach can be more valuable than a good (great?) running back.
The reactions are below. It gets a little confusing because some of the folks responding are 49ers fans saying they wouldn't do it and some of them are other media folks.
So, would you make that trade?
H/T @cdotharrison and 610 Sports for the question.
@PolarizedCandy @ArrowheadPride @greghall24 he's also a coach. Doesn't do anything on the field. Elite players much more imp. than a coach— Grant Martensen (@Grant5Martensen) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride It would be a good move considering we drafted Knile Davis, but no. Jamaal has a bond with the chiefs now. He's permident.— Will (@WillWilcutt) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride I wouldn't trade @kcwolf let alone @jcharles25 for harbaugh #chiefsnation— phatphuk (@phatphuknyu) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride absolutely, & I’d even pay for his move to the Bay Area. RB’s can be replaced a great HC is more likely to last 10+ years— Capt. Obvious (@CravenMorhead) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride @greghall24 NO— Matt Stagner (@stagdsp) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride before Reid, yes. But not now. Chiefs pump out great backs anyways.— Jeremy Bird (@Daddy_Rusty) June 25, 2013
@greghall24 @stagdsp @ArrowheadPride That's crazy. Even a great RB is on a countdown to destruction. Great coach never loses a step.— Kent Babb (@kentbabb) June 25, 2013
@greghall24 @stagdsp @ArrowheadPride And although RB can make a coach occasionally look great, a great coach ALWAYS makes a RB look great.— Kent Babb (@kentbabb) June 25, 2013
@TheJeffReport @greghall24 @stagdsp @ArrowheadPride Exactly. Alfred Morris is a transcendent talent? Dude dropped 1,600 yds last yr!!— Kent Babb (@kentbabb) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride god no— King Cole (@thekingcole2003) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride @greghall24 that's the stupidest thing I ever heard— King Cole (@thekingcole2003) June 25, 2013
@NinersNation @ArrowheadPride running back? (Refrains from cursing violently) that's some serious reaching there.— Top Shelf (@chriscream) June 25, 2013
@ArrowheadPride @greghall24 hell nah! is that a trick question or something!?!?— CMD (@cmd3382) June 25, 2013
@NinersNation @ArrowheadPride that question is ludicrous & not just bc I'm a Niners homer. Top tier HC for 8+ yrs > 3-4 yrs of maybe top RB— John Intrater (@intrater) June 25, 2013
