Seeing how you couldn't see the ball spinning but he could I trust KW's choices rather then yours. The ball probably had forward spin or no spin and would have bounced sideways or not at all and stayed where he was. Also its just more logical to FC a punt at the 10 rather then give the quickly closing gunners because they were closer then you were saying a chance to down it closer to the goal line and pin your essentially rookie QB inside the 5 or closer, it is safer to take the "sure" FC at the 10 then play the percentages of a touchback versus the ball going out of bounds or being downed inside the 5. Giving him just that "much" more room to work worth.
Ginn's fumble was apparently attributed to a wrist injury sustained moments earlier, not due to him "dancing" around. Sorry to be so pointed but I hate when people complain about something but dont stop and think about why things may have happened the way they did.
Also dont you think Harbaugh likely told KW to fair catch EVERYTHING because we already turned the ball over once and he wants to minimize the chance of it happening again????
lol @ probably. second of all, it was inside the ten. it was at the six. third of all, what minimizes the chances of a muffed punt, oh wait, it's not touching it (inside the ten). finally, i never brought up ginn's fumble, i brought up the fact that he runs sideline to sideline far more often then he should.
rereading my post, you might have misinterpreted it. I should have uprobably used a semi-colon. The point was, KW fair catching punts with obviously large amounts of space along with faircatching inside of the ten (something he has a history of doing dating back to last year)
