It was badly needed because I wasn't sure that Kaep would have been able to move the ball down the field enough for the field goal.
But thats how the game goes, sometimes it goes you way and other times not and without the help of the 12th man (which should be disallowed), it was a nice feeling when we now know that the 49er's can play and beat a good team on an EVEN field.
It used to be that the refs controlled crowd noise, but somewhere along the line the rules changed. I really do feel that they should bring that rule back in (penalty if the crowd is too noisy), because I don't think that it's part of the game. If that's the case why don't the other team's fans bring in their BOOM BOXES and even the score in those stadiums where the crowd can't generate enough noise. ie: Outdoor stadiums.
