This Jim Harbaugh questionnaire from his first NFL season is everything you'd expected it to be

NFL coach questionnaires are making the rounds on Twitter, including Jim Harbaugh's from his first season leading the San Francisco 49ers. The questions are plenty and open-ended, and the answers are... very Jim Harbaugh.

The most interesting answer is Harbaugh's choice of the toughest coach he'd ever faced. Not Pete Carroll, not Chip Kelly, but TCU's Gary Patterson. The two faced each other twice, a home-and-home in 2007-08, when Harbaugh was in the process of building Stanford into the monster it would eventually be and still is to this day. TCU won both games, a come-from-behind 38-36 win at Stanford in 2007 and a 31-14 triumph in Fort Worth a year later.
