    Pay no attention to that guy.

    Fans who sell there tickets to the visiting team deserve no attention.

    It tells you all u need to know.

    Turned out to be a good one. SF probably should have won if it were not for those four questionable play-calls at the end of the game. I thought I was watching our offense there for a minute.

    That's nothing new. I was rooting against the Steelers ever since they won their 2nd (it didn't help, they had us beat by 1979). Then the 49ers started winning multiple Super Bowls in the 80s and I've been rooting against them ever since!

    Playoffs in general were probably the best in a while.

    Hopefully, we won't have any "Is Flacco better than Romo" threads. :pray:

    Inject me with sodium pentathol and I'd probably say the same thing, but I don't see the point of inserting it in this thread. No need whatsoever.

    Cowboys seem sooooo far off after you watch those two teams.

    The game ended up being better than I thought it was. Still it would have been better if we won. I know refs don't like to make calls that decide a game of this magnitude, but that was indeed holding on Crabtree.

    I completely agree. I don't care that the 49'ers lost, but I do think that was a blatant hold and it should have been called. Sucky way for a superbowl to end.
    The Ravens wouldn't have even argued if the hold was called.

    Crabtree was pushing off just as much as he was being held.

    It was a good no call.

    Don't agree at all. Replays showed initial hold within 5 yards and a massive Crabtree pull down and push off helmet by Crab. Ball also landed on an upward arc past the white out of bounds line...uncatchable. Great non call. I was peeved at blackout. Momentum changer. To me right team won and there was no controversy.

    I think it would have been a pretty ticky tack call, as most of the contact occurred within 5 yards and he didn't obviously change Crabtree's direction with the any holding. Plus Crabtree pushed off as well.

    I agree with the above poster. The Cowboys seem so far away from both those organizations. From coaching, heart, qb's ... all of it..

    After watching Flacco's entire playoff run, there is just no way in hell Romo would have not stumbled at some point.

    That's what hurts most of all. It's like losing you're defeated before you start..

    Hats of to Flacco. He's endured a lot of crap especially from people on these forums. He just shut everyone up.

    Grats to the Ravens. Top notch organization. Thanks Jerry. Hope it hurts..

    I will never understand the fascination with the end zone fade. Appears to be a fairly low success probability play...or maybe that's just the case in the games I watch.

    Im glad the game didn't end on a penalty. Let them play. It's the Super Bowl. The ball was uncatchable.

    Overall, the refs did a great job. They did miss Ed Reed coming across early on the two point conversion try but other than that and the Crabtree call I didn't see any bad calls.

    The 49ers are their own worst enemy always starting off too slow. They did it against Atlanta and this time it bit them. Perhaps it's a circumstance of getting outcoached in the first half of games? I mean they play stellar in the second half but play like scrubs in the first half. I can't figure these guys out.

    Ed Reed timed that perfect. He did NOT come across early.

    Agree. Horrible and low percentage. I'd rather get a guy like Kaep running play action 4 plays straight, using the TE and crossing routes.

    I'm with you, especially calling it on 4th down with the Superbowl on the line.

    You can't hold a player when the ball is in the air like Smith did. That was a hold clear as day. The ball was catchable had he not been held. Let me guess, you were rooting for the Ravens so the 49ers wouldn't get their 6th superbowl before the Cowboys?
