Yeah that pretty much sums it up. I don't normally get emotional about injuries and players but for some reason Bowman's leg injury made me forget there was a game happening. I think I had multiple thoughts... like if we win he won't be able to play in the Superbowl. I still remember him sitting on the bench after we lost the SB last year and he was taking it all in.
Bow's pick six is the high but for some reason I really like Brooks hit on Drew Bree's. I know we lost the game but everyone knows the refs goofed that call. We basically went into New Orleans and beat the crap out of them. In the end we lost but the replay of that hit is awesome.
Putting the playoffs aside, Brooks hit on Brees was actually the highest and lowest point of the season for me.
When he got that strip fumble, with the recovery, it was the biggest play of the season, in a HUGE game, with home field implications. When the ref took it away, I just sat they with my jaw open, not angry, just in awe of the referee, like he had gone insane.
I would have been equally surprised if the referee said, "Personal foul, 49er player was laughing at me." Or something like that. That would have been equally as confusing and surreal. I have never been in a state of absolute confusion and awe as much as I was when they took that game away from us.
