Don't have too much of problem with the play calling, but the REF no calls is what cost the game. Three no calls on that series. Pass interference on Crabtree in the end zone...twice and the tackle on the ravens safety punt. That's okay though, Ray got his second trophy. I think that's what the majority wanted anyway. That's the American way, the only way to win is to cheat.
Aye Caramba! Why would you not hand the ball off to Frank Gore from 5 yards away with Haloti Ngata out of the game and the best line in the league?
Greg Roman blew the play calling by trying to get fancy and ignoring the Niners' best asset. It was an amazing comeback but passing from the five on consecutive plays after Gore had just busted a 30 yard run was utter stupidity.
There's going to be a lot of second guessing after this one.
This. I kept saying why are they not sending out their jumbo package and run it up the middle?????

Honestly, I don't care about the possible holding calls. Kaepernick threw a ball that would have been very difficult to catch, even if Crabtree hadn't been held, as it landed out of bounds. My point is, the game shouldn't have come down to a mini Hail Mary prayer of a throw from the 5 yard line when we had our tanks and battering rams ready to punch through the tired and injured Ravens front line. Why lob the ball when we had our running game in full force?
