He was held all the way from the 30 to the 40 yard line. thats 10 YARDS that the refs didnt see? i highly f**king doubt it.
You know, if refs called a perfect game there would be so many penalties that the nfl would be so annoying to watch. There's penalties on a lot of plays in the nfl. I'm sure if you watched the whole game again you could see holds on some of our long runs or passes that weren't called. The game wasn't rigged, they weren't doing things because it was Ray's last game, they missed the call, it sucks, but it happens.
We shouldn't be looking at 1 or 2 plays and think those were the reasons we lost. Because the truth is, we should've NEVER been down 28-6. That's OUR fault. That's not Niner football. I loved watching us come so close to coming back, Kaep has proven himself in this league and he is so fun to watch. It sucks that we couldn't finish, but it was a great 2nd half effort. And if we didn't get our doors completely blown off in the 1st half I truly believe we win this game. But it is what it is, and it was a great job by the Ravens.
Well as you can see, being down 22 points didnt lose us the game as we scored 31. It baffles me to hear people say that "if we would have done this or that earlier, we could have won the game". Well that would be true if we lived in an ideal world where early screw ups mean "you automatically lose the the game", then it would not be a 60 minute game in a sense would it? I have yet to see an NFL team play a perfect game, therefore it is unreasonable to expect one. Those 1,2,3,4,5,6,7, or 8 plays most certainly cost us the game. If we are going to lose the game on some innocent "botched or missed calls", then they need to be consistent on both sides. Now how many times have you seen that fade route to Crabs called an INT under the same circumstances in the NFL?
First, too much contact was made after 5 yards, second, when did they start allowing that much contact with a reciever once the ball in released? On a key 3rd down for the Ravens Culliver was whistled even though he was in better position AND made less contact. I understand that you dont want to go out like that, but it was obviously a going out festival for Ray Lewis and the Ravens organization.
