We were underprepared for this game......especially the offense. Had we had the full week to prepare....I think the outcome could have been different. I mean on the 49ers postgame, they said they probably only had one practice and a walk-through prior to flying out for the game. The home team is at the advantage there because they don't have to go anywhere. This was a game where they were given the raw deal....as Harbaugh said.
Nonetheless....it was a loss and we should all keep our head up high. 9-2 is still the 2nd best record in the league and you can be sure with no short weeks the rest of the season, Harbaugh will make sure the team don't play like this again....especially against the Steelers in SF.
Harbaugh probably had a feeling this was going to be a very difficult game, I'm sure the whole staff new it and the players. You could hear it in his voice during the press conferences prior to the game....he didn't even stay to celebrate Thanksgiving with the fam, instead flew back with the team. From the AZ game then about 92 hours later to play the Ravens......trying to game plan, practice, and get healed....would be pretty hard to do. I wouldn't have been suprised if the team was still tired. I'm impressed thought that we stayed in the game up until the 4th quarter. Shows that the Niners play tough, but just couldn't get it done at the end.
