Ravens have beaten the 49ers two years in a row.
Ravens were blowing the Niners out of the stadium before the momentum stopping outage occurred. Niners were on their way to a historic a$$ whoopin before that happened. Just man up and face the facts
literally every call/non-call went against the Niners other than the Soap hit on Flacco--on which no one really agrees if or if not it was a foul.
Roman s**t the bed big time with his final series playcalling. We run the ball and we score, you guys were getting GASHED all 2nd half and didn't have Ngata, who even said he was surprised they didn't run the ball.
Ray Lewis was getting punked up and down the field (just thought I'd add that in there)
Crabtree was undeniably fouled on the final 2 plays. Of course there's the hold on 4th down that would have given us the ball at the 1 or 2.5 depending on if they called it PI or not. The 3rd down play was much actually more blatant, though has received less press. As I've said, I'm generally skeptical of the helmet-helmet rules, but Williams' helmet-to-helmet shot on Crabtree on the 3rd down is a textbook example of what the league has labeled illegal hits. One can maybe, maybe reasonably argue about the hold--not that didn't occur, or even if the refs should or should not call it, but only about if the ball was catchable; there is no denying, however, the helmet-helmet shot on Crabs on 3rd down and I'd really love to see you explain away that one.
Now, get back to enjoying your unfortunately tainted win in beautiful Baltimore and blindly hero worshiping your demented demigod leader. Bye now!
