Your reasons for why we lost

We had our shot and came up short. Run the ball on second down and third down, that's what this team is built on.
Roman and culliver
Pointless...........
by the way, why wasn't there a hold on Jacoby kickoff return. After re-watching the game I saw two Ravens holding and grabbing on a niner so much that his jersey was basically halfway up his body???

is that not a hold penalty?
we showed our inexperience.
with 9min left take the extra point dont go for two. TOO MUCH time. Vernon was our best player get him the ball in the endzone. every great niner qb wanted that cluch factor. If that was steve young on goalline he would of kept it himselfand ran it up the middle. You have 4downs give gore or the ball. 3rd remember when montana wold always have that dump off play to rathmanif he couldnt find anyone well he should of done that to miller. 4th Kaep should of ran it bootleg to the left.
1) our defense didn't show up: just dug ourselves in too big of hole to climb out of by being down 22 points.

2) bad play calling at the goal line. Should of call more run plays, at least a outside runs and try a run with Kaep.
I couldn't believe that Jamie Dukes had an interesting point yesterday . . .

I agree with both of these but looking at the time of possession for each drive, the niners had one decent drive in the first half along with turning the ball over twice in the second quarter...that's not on the defense. Our inexperience showed. There were a couple of potential interceptions on both sides that were dropped or otherwise not made so that was even.

Kaepernick seemed to be looking for Crabtree too much at the end and had Moss wide open a couple of times, once in the endzone. He has become CK's security blanket much as VD was for Smith...but CK did throw to VD early, just not at the most critical time in the endzone. Not sure what plays would have worked but at least they didn't run up the middle four times in a row!

Edit: Interesting that all three passes in the last possession, inside the ten, went to the right side.

In the melee, 29 is lucky he did not get flagged and easily could have been ejected. He shoved the Linesman.

On Jacoby Jones kick return there is no holding on a double team block unless the defender is taken to the ground. He wasn't.

3. Mike Pereira ‏@MikePereira
Reed was not offisde on the try. He moved forward just as the ball was being snapped. Perfectly timed.

4. Didn't even see it happen. No idea.

5. Mike Pereira ‏@MikePereira
Tough play that is real close both ways. Good job not calling anything.

Agree with Sims. There is a quick grab and a pushoff. Not one that is going to be called. Nothing obvious in real time

6. Either way the play is a safety, so better to hold player and waste more time.

If the calls went the other way he'd spin it positively

A holding call in the endzone results in a safety. BAL didn't care about being flagged for that since they were going to take a safety anyways.

Why didn't any refs throw a flag? Who cares, the game was over.

Even if they throw a flag the play continues to it's end, the time runs off and is not put back no matter what. End zone holding isn't like a false start that immediately stops play.
I say this with all respect to my fellow 49ers fans ....Lets leave it alone ....nothing will take away all these horrible feelings , all the "woulda coulda shoulda's" is not going to ease the pain we are feeling , it's sort of like rubbing salt in the wound ...the best thing we can do now is look forward to the draft , and support our team as we always have ....#6 is gone, and we need to regroup to take another shot at it next year

It's got nothing to do with the practical impact IMO. It's about integrity. How do they miss/ignore seven holds?
