I could care less who won that game... but IMO it takes the enjoyment out of watching. I do find it a little odd that every call or non call was in the Ravens favor. And these were BIG moments of the game to...

kick returned for a TD.... watch the replay... two ravens grab hold of a 49er and mug him...right in the middle of the field and totally prevent him from making a play that would have likely prevented that return. TD should have been negated. Yea I know holding can get called on every play...but when the play happens because of a hold... it needs to be called.

The Raven's got several generous spots...they did challenge one but it wasn't the only one.

Most importantly the last offensive play by the niner's.... could have called that illegal contact, holding, pass interference... take your pick ...either way it was blatant and right in front of an official. Should have been 1st and goal with about 1:30 left on the clock.... game over niners win.

The safety....watch the relay..... maybe the most laughable non hold I've ever seen.... The only reason their kicker was able to burn so much time...the Raven's practically tackled a niner .... should have been holding....10 seconds back on the clock I think?
Practically tackling a player is called a "Pancake" and not considered holding. I have no idea why people always have something to complain about. That non-call on Crabtree was the right call. They were both going at it and even though the ravens defender was holding him, Crabtree also had a push off, so it wouldn't have mattered anyways.

The Niners offensive coordinator gave that game away with gayest calls I have ever seen near the goal line. They were running the ball well so they decide to allow the Ravens to go all out blitz against their inexperienced QB. At least in a run formation you have multiple options to utilize. What did the do? Go one dimensional.

They started out the game playing finesse football and they ended it playing finesse football. They weren't ready for the fight nor did they want engage at least that's what the OC was saying with his ***** gameplan.

Is that true in Steeler games, too? Every Steeler game? Is it?
