So glad the refs didn't call holding

71 posts in this topic

On the 4th down play. Seriously, all analysts just whine about the rule changes and how nobody can play defense. Then after the game all the analysts are like its a holding call and just start complaining. Do they want to see defense or not?!

Crabtree was all over Smith as well! Is he meant to just let him run by him? It was a poor play call, the blitz destroyed the O-Lline and it was a rushed throw.

Let the guys play the ball, they both battled for the ball in the air and the receiver couldn't get to the ball.

Congrats Ravens.

It is an iffy call, say it was against an eagle in the final play to win the game, of the super bowl, your opinion would be different, i imagine..

However there should have been a penalty on Jimmy Smith on the play before where he hit Crabtree helmet to helmet on a defenseless receiver.. But I like the fact that Crabtree aint being a baby about it like Maclin..

When the niners beat the falcons on a non-call, all the niner fans were saying "just let them play football", now all the Niner fans are saying "whaaaa, boo Hoo"

Personally, I thought it could have went either way. Both players had their hands on each other and I wondered if the throw would have been caught at all?

Maclins whining has gotten us a a fair share of extra penalty yardage. Sometimes I think he does it just to see what the refs will give him.

Yes because Smith had both his hands on him grabbing him...

crabtree proved to be a class act.

That being said, there is no "flop" rule in the NFL. This is the Super Bowl and you're in a TD or bust situation. You act a fool and do whatever animated sheet you need to do to get a flag and keep the drive alive for your team.

Please, if that were Vick tossing the fade to one of your WR's, you'd probably have cast on your hand this morning from punching it through your TV or wall..

All of this 49er whining about one play is ridiculous.

They were outcoached, outplayed and Flacco was better than Kaepernick. That is why they won. Baltimore deserved to win the game.

Apparently under Jim Harbaugh, this is the new Niner way...they did the same last year after the Conference Championship Game and all offseason...

Crabtree was all over Smiths face mask too. They both went at each other, why give offense priority?

As Count already said, it's the same situation as the NFCCG. A play that easily gets flagged in the regular season that didn't in the playoffs, except this time the 9'ers ended up on the other end of it. Nobody heard any of them complaining about a bad call two weeks ago in Atlanta.

There was plays in the first half that the 49ers were all over the ravens recs and they didnt get called. The refs let them play all game long which is good, esp with two physical teams. Nothing worse then letting some plays slide but calling others that are the same later in a game. The Refs did a great job being consistant.

I like the idea of letting them play and I hate how ticky-tack defensive pass interference has become in the regular season, but that was a mugging. It was just a blatant hold with no attempt to play the ball or break up the pass. I can only imagine how irate I'd be if that happened to the Eagles.

They can't make a call in that situation unless he had flat out tackled Crabtree, although I think if the 9er's had been down a TD (instead of 5) they might have.

To me I put the blame on the play calling in that sequence once they had 2nd & goal at the 5, why call 3 straight throws to Crabtree to the short side of the field, with one of them short of the end zone? :nonono:

Yeah, I thought the play calling was pretty atrocious when they got inside the 10, too. They didn't roll Kaepernick outside of the pocket which would've made him a threat running or passing. Really thought they made it easy on the Ravens with those calls.

They did roll him out once, but to the short side of the field :nonono:, and then he threw to Crabtree well short of the end zone.

I would have spread the Ravens completely out and put him in the shot gun with a whole field run/pass option at least once there.

Both players were grabbing ajd pushing.

The ball might not have been catchable anyway.

The roughingnthe kicier penalty earlier was iffy as well as the no called late hit on Flacco that should have extended the drive.

Lots of calls and no alls in the game that effected it.

The Ravens scouted Kaepernick's red zone issues, and took advantage. That said, I'd didn't like the rollout call to the short side of the field either. In fact, I don't understand why teams will run plays that way in critical situations - they're cutting themselves off from 60% of the field.

I'm all for playing defense and corners being physical, but he had a fistfull of jersey

Did Crabtree not have hands all over him and his facemask though?
