Your reasons for why we lost

Did we not mount a comeback (yes) and his play calling was a part of that. The playes didn't execute on that final series. Coachs call plays and players make them work. How bout Kaep should be quicker about figuring out the D and then make an change at the line and get us into a better play? If a D comes with a blitz look and the coachs didn't think they would and thus called for a certain play but our qb sees it, then its on him to make the change at the line. He takes too dam long to get the darn plays off and it cost us timeouts and adjustments!


It costs us rhythm too. I don't blame Kap at all. It's our genius coaches forcing our players to over-analyze in critical moments when they should just be in the rhythm of the moment.

In fact, all this adjustment crap is what has bogged down Peyton Manning his whole career. Over-thinking, over analyzing, over reading, over adjusting. Sometimes you just need some damn rhythm.

There are 6 questions I have about calls in the Super Bowl?

(1) With 6:29 left in 2nd quarter (29) DB-Williams pushed a ref and was not ejected,why?
(2) The 2nd have kickoff was not called back for holding as 2 players had arms wrapped around (49) Miller , why?
(3) With 9:57 to go inthe game (20) DB-Reed was offside on 2 point conversion and it was not called, but with 4:28 left in the game after an incomplete pass the 49ers were called offsides,why?
(4) With 1:55 left in the game on 3rd and goal, (22) DB-Smith made helmet to helmet contact on WR-Crabtree and it was not called,Why?
(5) With 1:49 left in game on 4th and goal, holding on (22) DB-Smith not called even thogh he had 2 hands full of Crabtree's Jersey and also on the other side of the field (24) tackled TE-Walker in enzone while ball was in air to Crabtree,why?
(6) With 0:12 left in game during punt there were multiple 49er players held and in meantime the punter was able to hold the ball for 8 seconds before running out of bounds and no flag was thrown, why?

Thank-You

Our coaching staff is over-rated. More on that later.

There is a time when a good coach will just tell the players, "you all know how to play the game. Now just go play." It frees the players of a lot of pressure to perform and lets them just play. That was a part of the Bill Walsh strategy and it still works.
1) I don't know
2) Don't have a clue
3) Beats me
4) Haven't the slightest
5) That's a really good question
6) f**k it

Wait. 1 for 8? I can count at least 5 TD's off the top of my head that were thrown into the endzone.

They were caught IN the EZ...most are Crabtree/Moss catching it and running it in after some RAC. I'm wondering which one was the one. VD? Still, 10 games and only 8 passes INTO the EZ says a lot about our play designs; we certainly have some weapons with VD/Walker/Moss/Crabtree/James/Gore.
CK was 1 of 8 in the redzone yesterday.
I didn't like the calls. I hated the roll out call, the only call i like was it looked like a designed run but jim got the timeout called because others wise we got backup another 5 yards. I really didn't like any of the calls we throw fades to much in the redzone, like to see more quick outs or slants or how about we try a run up the gut since ngata was injured we started to make the running game work... I think gore should have gotten the ball, colin 10th start, we should have trusted gore to get in, he's always had a nose for the redzone rarely does gore get shut out... And every play called in the first half of the game was horrible, I say that because we couldn't move the ball at all, were horrible in the first half all playoffs the game planning sucks balls, but half time adjustments are amazing...

They are not that far off. However they do need another WR other than Crabtree. Randy Moss is not going to do the trick and who knows when Jenkins is going to come around (if ever). And either find DB or CB who can cover tall receivers or find another Justin Smith to play on the other side so they can have a decent pass rush.

The 49er's have always had problems with mobile QB's and although Flacco is not your Russell Wilson or Christian Ponder but the 49er's still couldn't contain him.

I'm glad I'm not the only person that thought Kaep could've rolled to his left,even with a Raven's blitz and beat everyone to the corner of the endzone .
Any other ideas, other than the intelligent Raven fan above?

1. 49ers started off slow in the 1st half in their 2 previous playoff matchups vs. the Packers and Falcons. It finally caught up with them in the Super Bowl.
2. Secondary's poor play ESPECIALLY CULLIVER!
3. La'Michael James' fumble.
4. Special Teams giving up kickoff TD return
5. Refs
what kind of answer do you expect? we got hosed on those calls...can't do anything but move on.

HARBAUGH'S ARROGANCE AND ROMAN'S CRAP PLAYCALLING ON THE FINAL PLAY'S COST US ANOTHER TITLE

Agreed. He's been calling plays like this in the RZ all year...the receiver 95% of the time runs SHORT of the EZ and hopes to get RAC and score. The fade is a good call on first down...but never in this situation...esp. to Crabtree. That play has only worked one time and that was with Alex throwing it against the Cardinals and even THAT was barely caught inside the EZ.

its not like we have not seen this s**t before from these two,, its not like some of us have tried to point out that roman has been a disaster. who gives a s**t about line scores and 300 yard passer and 100 yard rusher.. he blew the game last night, JH is lock step beside him to, no amount of spin can change the facts. the combonation the poster mentioned of the arrogance of the coach and the crap playing calling of roman is spot on,, but what the f**k we had a 300 yard passer last night so its all good

this should have been done a long time ago but we just kept putting band aids on it with the wins vs the packers and atlanta,, all of the things we have struggled with this year starting with roman and ending with a s**tty pass rush and special teams bit us on the biggest stage of all last night. i hate romans f**king guts and what he did last night should make everyone of you puke your guts out
