"only won due to ST"??? Come on Joe, your smarter than that. We have know idea what Harbaugh would have done when the score was 19-17. Unless you have a crystal ball that can give me some lottery numbers, your opinion is just that and nothing more. He may have had creative play designs to get another TD or we may have turned the ball over or we may have just eaten up the clock.
Considering he ran the ball and didn't look at all to go for the endzone with 6 minutes remaining and our offense was only 10 yards away from a TD...I have a feeling he would have been happy with a 2 point lead and forced SEA to try and win it.
This still doesn't change the fact that SEA won the halftime adjustments and we were outcoached in that half.
I was looking forward to going back on offense with that 2 point lead with a sense of dread and anticipation. Would Harbaugh and the team go through a clockwork process of going downfield, moving the chains, while killing as much time as possible? That would have been a great barometer as to how well our coaching staff does in the "chess match" of a game. We had the advantage in the 1st half, but Seattle had it in the 2nd - up to that point.
Of course, Ted Ginn had to "spoil" everything.
