So glad the refs didn't call holding

71 posts in this topic

There was no penalty. The ball was uncatchable by the angle it had taken and where it landed out of bounds.

If you want to blame anyone blame the SF OC for bad play calling at the end.

3rd down was a pass at did not make the end zone.

4th down was a lob to the corner.

For this supposed complex offense that is hard to defend when it came down to crunch time they fell flat with the play calls.

Agreed on 3rd down SF should have called a QB run with wide recievers spreading the field. That or pass it to Vernon after a chip block.

That play calling was atrocious... use ur athletic QB to find a hole or pound the rock.

I can't believe they didn't run any outside runs. That sprint counter they ran with gore would have worked again for sure, no way ray lewis is beating him to the corner.

And if you're going to throw, why on earth aren't you going to Vernon Davis every play, it was clear the ravens couldn't cover him.

I actually thought Baltimore's playcalling (in the second half) was worse than San Fran's. WAY too conservative.

Refs should've done that to teach Ravens organization a lesson for they did.

It was extremely conservative. My brother in law is a Ravens fan and he was screaming at the TV for most of the second half. He thought Cam Cameron was back.

The Ravens didn't do anything. Get over yourself already. They were limited on how many cheerleaders they could bring.

Crabtree was only a few feet from catching that ball and that was because he was being held. It doesn't matter either way because holding has nothing to do with a ball being catchable or not.

The ball being uncatchable negates the holding which would have been pass interference.

What?

Holding is different from DPI.

holding is 5 yards.

dpi can be anything, and the ball has to be catchable.

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"

This X 1,000

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?

Bingo to the first 2 qoutes......

For the last one--- Crabtree ran into smith and started the tussiling, looking like he was trying to get a flag thrown instead of trying to make a catch IMO. There was missed calls all over that game. What about when Flacco was hit out of bounds on the 3rd and 10 play with a few mins left on the drive before the 49ers last drive? If that flag is thrown which everybody knows it should have been, even Sanders said tounge in cheek that if that was Brady or manning hit like that the player would have been thrown out of the game..

The Refs let the players play this game the whole game. I dont thtink a flag should have came out there only b/c that wasnt being called all game long. No chance they were going to decide a superbowl on a flag. The Refs and NFL didnt want that.

This.

I guarantee the ref throws the flag if the ball looks catchable.

I seen that play and MY view It WAS A PASS INTERFEREANCE Niners would have gotten he TD and Won they were hot in the end and had the momentum if anything they could have gone into OT and won it

I'm glad they didn't throw the flag either. The precedent, whether you liked it or not, was set earlier in the game. Stuff like that was -not- getting called, so don't call it now on that play. You have to give credit for them being consistent.

Ontop of that, Crabtree needs to do a better job of locating/getting to the ball. He initiated the contact (I have no idea why you would want to do this on a fade route...) as much as Smith held. He knew where he needed to be to make a play on the ball, and he didn't get there.

I've always been the belief that in any sport you can't point at any one specific play, call foul, and then justify to yourself that you should have won. There was a lot more that the 49ers could of done to help themselves win. Like maybe if their defense showed up in the first half. Or offense for that matter. How about the playcalling in general when they were goal to go. How about something as simple as them having to waste a timeout due to the clock running too low, which in turn cost them 40 seconds of time for some what of a legit attempt at some last second plays.

I agree, as upset as I was over what I perceived a non-call on a PI against the Niners on 4th down, Atlanta should have never let them back in that game and should have steamrolled them. It was their own fault they were in that position.

Ravens were ahead by 5 at the time. OT was not possible.

9ers get 2 point conversion, ravens march down and get a FG to tie

A ball being catchable has nothing to do with a holding call. By the way that ball definitely was catchable.

This was the most important thing thats overlooked IMO. The ball landed a few yds out of bounds. If the ball would have landed in-bounds I think it would have been thrown IMO. The holding wasnt going to be called that close within the 5yd rule, and no-way a PI flag was coming out b/c of how bad the throw was.

No chance in hell was that ball catchable. Jerry rice himself couldnt have caiught that ball with how far it landed outta bounds

The ball landed in the middle of the white line that surrounds the endzone which is not even 1 yard out of bounds. Very catchable ball, in fact without the holding Crabtree catches it.

You can't say that. You can say has a chance to catch it, you don't know what happens otherwise. Call should have been made, but if you aren't calling it in the NFC Championship, you can't call it there. While I hated it wasn't called in the Atlanta game, I applaud their consistency.

Bull, it landed almost completley past the white. It hit inside the white by maybe 10 inches or so
