Harbaugh advantage No. 3 - Harbaugh brings discipline and toughness
One of the biggest issues the Seahawks had towards the end of the Pete Carroll era was they just did not seem like the team they were when they were at their peak in the LOB years. The tackling was not as good as it once was.
Players at times seemed out of position on defense and publicly Carroll said during this last season guys were not playing as they had practiced. Carroll would say one thing to his DBs in practice and they would not do it in the game. This is what led to a shake-up in the defensive backfield, as the season came to a close.
Harbaugh's Michigan team in the National Championship game, as much as Husky fans did not like it, was unreal. Michael Penix Jr. looked more uncomfortable than he had been all season, Michigan was exceptional in pass coverage, and their defense as a whole made good tackles in space. On the offensive side, Michigan ran over Washington for 303 yards, as Michigan's O-line put on a clinic.
Should the Seahawks decide to bring Harbaugh to Seattle the toughness will come with him. Along with the discipline that has made him a successful coach both in the NFL and in college. Although Seattle sports fans may not love Harbaugh right now, they could be singing a different tune should he succeed with the Seahawks.
