The fact is that the 49ers have been playing with fire for the entire playoffs. I think they were very fortunate to get out of Atlanta with a win after lame ducking it through the first half. You can't do that against a team as good as the Ravens. It finally caught up to them last night and they deserved to lose the football game.
I pray that they get a top-flight CB in the offseason, because Culliver was the main reason the 49ers were down big in this game. Every time the Ravens needed a big play, they went in Culliver's direction, and he got lit up. He made two stops all night, one of them when Flacco threw it out of the endzone(and Culliver ran around talking smack), and the second time when Culliver could have been charged for rape and got called for PI.
Not a sore loser but the Refs were bad and cost the 49ers the game.I'm not a sore loser, but it's the refs fault?? Okay.
I'm gonna go in a totally different direction here and say why not send it into overtime ?? Screw the bad calls by refs, not even trying a running play inside the 10 .............. even with all that the game was ours to win so why not tie it up ???????? what 5 point play would you have run to time the game?
The refs did cost us this game.Nobody can say the 49ers would have scored if a flag was thrown on the Crabtree play. Yes, it would have given them life. Gore could have fumbled. Kaepernick could have been sacked or thrown an INT. The only points we know for sure were gift-wrapped came from the Akers flop. Take those points off the board and the Ravens lead 28-3 before the lights go out. Be happy the power outage brought the 49ers back from the dead. They were a different team after that 34-minute break. All the momentum from the 108 yard kick return disappeared. A freak outage gave the 49ers life. That's crazier than any of the referee's calls or non-calls.
