I know blaming them doesn't bring the trophy to SF, but I think the players & coaches did enough to win that game & just got screwed like the Seahawks were in SB XL and the Cardinals were to a lesser extent in SB XLIII. It's sports; this happens. It'll make revenge all that much sweeter when the Niners beat the Ravens in a Harbowl rematch next year!
1. the defense did nothing to win that game
2. the special ed teams did nothing to win that game
3 our overall poor play on offense early did nothing to win that game
4 and when you have second and goal from the five yard line with the best run game and run blocking line in the nfl and you choose not to do what the team does best,,,,, the coaches did nothing to win that game
i believe ck and gore put that team on their back in the second half, no thanks to roman and I believe it is criminal to use a back like gore who had just ripped off a big run to set around playing f**king checkers as a decoy,,, it is also criminal to have two pro bowl linebackers setting around playing f**king checkers in pass coverage when you should have brought them with pressure once in a while instead of allowing the ravens quarterback to pick apart our keystone cops secondary that day
