The whistle was way early and the play would have continued (I guarantee) if Bradshaw had spun around and broke loose. But the refs were off throughout the game alot. Missing harbaughs timeout call probably made me mad the most though. It was clear he was signalling for a TO and they blatently ignored it. But yet reversed 2 plays when Coughlin called Timeouts before the play WTF???
Yeah, the TO-thing was HUGE b/c it was 3rd and 7, I believe. And that was the second game in a row where Harbaugh was not rewarded the TO yet Payton's team was allowed to run a full play, didn't get the 1st down and THEN was rewarded the initial TO, wiping out the play. That TO may have been just as big as this non-TO b/c again, we were driving and had momentum and were about to score a TD.
