Grant Cohn: What's a Jim Harbaugh worth? (w/video)

The 49ers are about as good as they can be given the current salary cap. They will not get much better, economics simply won't allow it. They might even get worse as Justin Smith and Frank Gore get older.

If Harbaugh couldn't win a Super Bowl coaching this team when Smith and Gore were in their primes, maybe Harbaugh can't win a Super Bowl coaching any team.

Could Bill Belichick have won the Super Bowl coaching the 49ers the past three seasons?

Yes.

Could Sean Peyton?

Yes.

Pete Carroll?

Yes.

John Harbaugh?

Yes.
