he didnt land on anybody, let alone "players" therefore is was another shitty call by the frefs amongst many (both for and against us).

officiating has steadilly and consistantly gone downhill ever since goodell took over. theis is by far the worst year ever in ALL GAMES.

when you have refs constantly looking to players and coaches before they throw a flag, you know you have a problem.

This dude is turning into Alonzo Jackson all over again! Couldn't COUNT how many times he was out of position and completely flopping and flailing at our inside linebacker spot. Timmons is constantly out of the play and very rarely EVER does anything. He's also a f*cking p*ssy at pass-rushing. Never have I seen the guy run THROUGH a running back on a blitz. So disappointed with #94's performance this year, was expecting big things. He's simply invisible.
ya know what, i hear ya. What the HELL has happened to Timmons? He was on his way to a break-out superstar career...this should have been his year...and he hasn't done NOTHIN'. NO game changing plays, no nothing. Shit, Harrison, when he plays is half-injured and makes game changing plays all day long.
It's like Timmons is now playing with 1/4 of a brain. He's doing nothing to be a game-changer.

....still thinking about the 15 yard interference call, can't get it out of my head as it was possibly a game changing play...
I saw Tomlin discussing with the official after the play and I am wondering whether he was told he could not challenge the play. Reason being that he cannot challenge a penalty....But couldn't he challenge whether or not the ball was touched by the 49ers player or not? If upheld, would this overrule the penalty? I feel amaturish asking this...What do you guys think?

Harbaugh bought that call because he cried and whined earlier in the game.. maybe Tomlin needs to start whining like the Harbaughs.. at least they are getting the calls.

The play nobody wants to talk about that was ABSOLUTE HORSEHIT was that fumble on the punt return by the 9'ers. That ball hit his blockers arm before our guy (can't remember who it was) was going through that block with NO fair catch! I thought that call really f*cked us in the ass, excuse my language. I'm pissed.

People have talked about it, and it might suck for us, but it was a good call. It's in the rules. Look it up.

And no, it wasn't a game-changer. Three picks and a fumble by Ben, along with an unbelievably bad offensive game plan from Arians were the game-changers.

Even with Ben's two interceptions early, the game was 6-3 at one point. The game changer was that deep throw to Davis that gave the 9'ers offense a much needed spark. Another game changer was the leap from Timmons. That made it three possession.
