Your reasons for why we lost

Really??
I waited to cool down and have many reasons why. The 49ers seem to be getting out game-planned by the better teams. They make great halftime adjustments but they sleep walk into games.

Whitner is a liability in coverage. He is great in run support but his pass coverage is really bad.

Culliver had a bad game and a down season but he has the talent to play a lot of ball. The matter of poor judgement had nothing to do with this bad game.

Aldon needs to get smarter and get stronger. I think Fangio needs to help him out with his planning, but guys like LT and Bruce Smith and Reggie White understood how to stay ahead of of blocking schemes. I wonder just how bad that shoulder is? Having a guy like Haralson back would help him late in the season. He can also help himself by focusing on becoming a better player this offseason instead of screwing around.

Ginn's daddy wants him out of the Bay? Bye.

Moss. I said this before after the Green Bay game and even started a thread that got thrown out but I saw flashes of the old Randy all season long. You can say that he was great mentor and motivator and maybe he was but he sure did take plenty of plays off. In the Divisional game he let up on that throw to the end zone. the old Randy who wanted to score goes up and catches that. And Kaep's pick in the Super Bowl was again lazy Randy. These aren't the only two instances. If you have the film go back and watch it. ALSO, for most of his career, Randy would go up after a ball and attack the throw. Do you recall him really leaving his feet much this year...like ever?

LaMike. This was the Super Bowl against a good defense that gets after the ball. Three points of pressure son.

Roman. Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde. I don't think I need to explain the analogy. He goes from great drives and great 3 call series of down to "What the F-CK are you calling that for" play calls. The last series of downs was just crap. The 2 point conversion play call was crap. I like the guy, he is really good most of the time but Freddie P. Soft takes over his brain sometimes.


Lastly, I'm disappointed and think we did more to lose than Baltimore did to win. We played two opposite halves and that needs to stop. That was a great, great game. The 49ers has a ton of young talent and with continued great drafts, smart FA signings and keeping some of our own (Sign Crabtree NOW, haven't seen a receiver with yards after contact since John Taylor), they can win for a long time. The window will be open for some time with this young QB we have. We need to appreciate how good he is and how good he is going to be. Its really kind of scary but that was only his 10th start. Luck, RG3, Weeden, Tanneyhill and Wilson have all started more games! I wouldn't trade Colin for any of them.

i understand why he feels this way , the more you win the more you want to win, the further you go, the further you want to go so when it ends with a loss its really hard to look back on the season as being successfull. the players hurt and i bet you right now(this will change after a few weeks) if someone came up to them and said " well you had a great season" they would look at you with the sick expression of a chicken who had just layed a square egg..... I am upset, its hard for me to think positive but in time it was a great season and while i am angry at certain players like akers and the entire secondary and aldon smith and i wish someone would boil roman in scalding oil before firing him ,,,, I am proud of the guys

I can tell you why the flag for question number 6 was irrelevant.

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.

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

Exactly that's the real point
The league always talks about the integrity of the game
It tells you what we all already know : once the playoffs and certainly the superbowl comes to town the refs call it different.
The refs came out flat, the niners came out flat and the ravens took advantage.
They were opportunistic during the playoffs and it paid off
We're the sorrry looser
we're still at the wrong end of the stick
But hey if we're made of champions stuff we'll go all the way next year
Remember how BW worked with adversity ? Remember after the refs cost us the 1983 season CG at redskins when we came flat in the first half ?
He pumped up the team with the us against the world mojo.
The rest is history
We cannot dwell on this
We know what happened, we're no fools, we've got a long memory and we' ll be prepared
Count on JH for this
Just one thing to say right now :
carpe diem and Goooooooooooooo NINERS !!!!!!!!!!!!
Or the play that once again we get to the line late so we have to take another wasted timeout. It was read option and Kaep would have gotten the edge because the End/Backer bit inside.
It was a great season! I am proud of every player on this team however I am completely embarrased by their performance in the championship game and most certainly the superbowl. I just dont see how anyone can feel proud of watching that cluster fuk of a game. Our offense sucked for an entire half. The defense didn't even get off the plane and our coaches knew all of this and coached the game scared. They looked nervous and confused the entire time and I expected better. My expectation for this team could not have been higher and the team could not have let me down any more than they did. Complete flop in the biggest game of their lives. What a shame.

We feel behind early again. That's the reason why we lost.

That is great to say but this team looked flat out awful several times this year---Seattle, Giants, St. Louis games (relative to the opponent) first quarter Atlanta, first half SB--they were not a dominant contender
I don't agree with the talking heads. The job of the officials is to make a call whenever and wherever it is warranted game outcome be damned. Simply put, they didn't do their job.

Who would you hire and why?
Didn't you get on Harbaugh for making the QB switch as well?
you want names? i do not know,, i want someone who does not get cute when they need to play to the stregnth of the team. the only thing i questioned was the timing of the decision. I thought it should wait untill the off season cuz i did not think ck was ready for the big time. the first rams game showed me the kid could play, the bears game showed me the kid can win, the saints game in the dome was all I needed to see that ck is a better fit for us than alex. i know some like to paint me as a ck hater but that is far from the truth. good posters like sus know that i was one of the first people who defended ck in the first rams game against people who ripped him. i hope that answers your question

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

2. Mike Pereira ‏@MikePereira
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

Agreed. This guy is a clown and always sides with the officials on the field.

Charlie casserly(former member of competition committee) said the same thing. A penalty is a penalty. Their job is not to "let them play". Their job is to enforce the rules. If you or I don't do our jobs, we get canned.

great season.

We failed to win the SB. Were one of the 31 losers.

I cant stand the apologist attitude of "Well at least we had a great season guys. Proud of this team!" All that fluff means nothing.

We had a great shot to win a 6th title, and we blew it. Who knows when we'll be back. I dont see how any Niner fan can be satisfied with this season. Its encouraging the way were progressing, but the end result was the same its been for the last 18 years.

sadly the seasons from 2003-2010 have lowered fans expectations to that of the seahawks or cardinals fan bases. i dont look at 1983, 1987, 1990, 1992 or 1997 as great seasons, i looks at them as failed chances to stack up more rings.
