For some reason this loss is taking longer for me to get over than the Super Bowl loss.
I think its because we had a 1st down on the 18 with 2 timeouts. Plus who the loss was against.
If the Kap INT had been on 4th down, it wouldve been easier to get over. Something about rushing the play when we had 4 shots at the endzone from the 18 yard line is what irks me.
Its hard for me to blame Kap for 2 reasons. One, hes still very young, and has more confidence than he does experience. And two, Harbaugh HAS to know when to use a timeout and talk it over. He has to know that his QB might make the mistake of rushing the play.
Call timeout, talk it over, make a plan. He shouldve said "Hey, we still have another timeout, were in the red zone, and we have enough time for 4 shots into the endzone. Dont force the ball until its 4th down, and dont take a sack."
I have a feeling this loss is going to bug me until we win another SB. Especially if SEA crushes Denver and proves the NFC wouldve won either way.
