football. It was exciting to the end. Alex Smith must be saying, "What can I say? Wasn't my fault."

29. The 49ers play calling at certain points this season has been absymal.

One of those throws wasn't even to a receiver with a chance to get in the end-zone.

Ngata was out.

San Francisco 49ers Rush Yds Avg Lng TD FumL
Frank Gore 19 110 5.8 33 1 0
Colin Kaepernick 7 62 8.9 15 1

Baltimore managed to give up 182 yards on the ground and still win. The 49ers only gave up 98 yards rushing. They've shown a lack of faith in Frank Gore all season for some reason in key situations.

- I guess there's always next year.

37. Damn... Kap was only two yards shy of tying the SB rushing record for a QB.

Had they let him run the ball when they were at the 5 (run the ball two or three times) he would have set the record AND been the MVP.

OTOH, it would have been a tough catch without the holding - defender would still have been in his face.

14. I have to agree--we watch the commercials and talk through the game, ordinarily,

but we actually enjoyed the contest this time...it wasn't boring!

I really didn't care who won, but the "getting there" was interesting for a change.

20. The 49ers totally got ripped off. It totally ruined the game for me.

I only saw parts of the second half and I'm not a fan of either team but...how could the referees not have seen that holding penalty right before the end of the game that they showed in slow motion replay over and over? Two minutes to go in the super bowl, and they missed that? A bat could have seen that from the next county.

I feel really bad for the 49ers; they most likely would have won the game if that obvious penalty had been called.

Boo refs.

22. then there was the holding when the ravens were taking a safety. both arms wrapped around the

defense men stopping them, running the clock.

there was no need. just cheating. those couple of seconds would not have mattered.

but ya, it made the end not as good.

25. Great game, right up until the last minute, fifty seconds,

 

Then the refs had to keep their flags firmly in their pockets, despite an obvious Raven hold. I hate when the refs decide the ending of a game like that. If it is a penalty, you call it, whether it happens in the first minute or the last minute.

31. LOL, yeah, right, whatever.

 

It's not like we didn't see the replay, time and again.

It isn't like refs haven't blown calls, or had bad non-calls, it happens virtually every game. Most of the time, they don't matter because there is enough time left on the clock for the team that got screwed to overcome it. But last minute blown calls or non-calls can't be overcome in the time remaining.

I don't have a dog in this fight, really didn't care who won, was just wanting a good game, which it was until the refs blew it with a minute fifty to go.

Major contact on both sides, initiated simultaneously.

The game was still going, the players were on the field.

I wonder if the coach will raise some hell over this lack of call.

34. He might grumble a bit,

 

But there are rules in place that prevent to much complaint by the coaches over the ref's decisions. Grumble too loudly and you get slapped with a nice hefty fine.

The ref's integrity must be upheld at all costs, even though they blow at least one call per game.

The coach was really pissed at the end.

That was important call they made.

27. Fantastic!

It begs the question: where does that Ravens offense come from? Awesome. Flacco is truly all that.

And the 49ers were spectacular as well.

Next year, I will be sure to set the DVR ahead of time to allow me to fast forward through the half time.
