Yeah at the time i stated that the b******te call will cost us the division. And it did.
There were so many other close calls as well....Deangelo Williams fumbling, Shaub full retard pick 6, Rams full retard goal line fail, tampa bay 21-0 lead or some s**t like that....
But then again we had our close calls as well (bowman pick 6 and Kap's near int to micah hyde).
It's amazing how those rose colored glasses work. We played like bridesmaids not champions this year. Too inconsistent offensively -- lacking the bully factor defensively. Expect more of the same next year unless Kap improves his reads and arm accuracy, and Roman/Harbaugh decide to add a short passing game to the team's playbook.
It's not complicated.
Developing young talent is a weakness for us.
Those rose colored glasses have an opposite effect as well. You expect everything to be rosey but its impossible.
You think we played like bridesmaids and not champs? We went 12-4 and our 4 losses were close games (except in SEA) against playoff teams. Non playoff teams got we blow out of the water, besides AZ, who was 11-5. We lost in a close game in SEA, who dominated Manning and the broncos on a neutral site.
Our defense was dominant during the stretch, imposing our will on teams (remember the goal line stands against (Car). We didn't allow a single 100 yard rusher...
And as far as developing young talent, Kap, Aldon, Culliver, Hunter, Miller, ian williams, Brock, Reid, etc...
Obviously we want the ring but we had a damn good season 30teams would love to have. Not sure how much more "rosey" that can get minus a ring.
