We didn't get any sacks but still held them to 253 yards. Considering the inept performance of our offense (170 yards), I'd say the defense did a good job.
This loss is 100% on the offensive line. This was the "short end of the straw" Harbaugh was talking about leading up to this game. The most complex part of gameplanning during the week is pass protection. In addition to the short week, they had to travel cross country which lessened their practice time even more. The o-line should feel ashamed for their performance today, but my opinion about this team hasn't changed. This is a good, well-coached football team.
Ravens have a great D, no doubt. But that penalty on Ginn's TD was a killer. The entire complexion of this game could have changed if not for that b******t call. It was a 1-possession game for virtually the entire game. I thought the team fought hard given the circumstances. If the Ravens came here to SF on a short week, I think we beat these guys.
Despite all this, the game came down to 1 or 2 plays. We had a lot going against us before the game was even played. Just an odd set of circumstances having to be the 1st team in NFL history to travel cross-country on a short week, just so the NFL can have their Har-bowl. I'm trying not to make excuses, but I can't help it. Just a frustrating loss...this team is better than that.
