"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
Why wasn't that a first down?
49ers are lucky to have 6 points. The first field goal was the direct result of an atrocious uncessary roughness penalty while the ball was still in the air and had been tipped.
That's some nice goal line defense from San Francisco - big difference between 10-6 and 14-6 obviously. As a side note, Cam Newton is vehicle behind 176 of Carolina's 195 yards so far, air and ground. San Francisco, incidentally, has taken 24 plays to get 67 yards before this coming drive.
For the late game - if you consider 4:40 PM late - Massey has Denver with a 75% projected win probability.
I was in awe of NE's rushing attack against the Colts, Brady threw just enough to move the chains, but they rode two RBs for 75% of their offensive production.
Not sure that was so much of NE having a strong running game, but rather Indy having an awful defense.
At some point the refs are going to have to throw a flag on the 49ers. Boldin and Kaepernick have been yapping all game and getting away with it. Refs are suppose to call it both ways and thus far they most definitely are not.
Riveria needs to get in the ear of the refs about Boldin. Next word he says should be 15 yards.
So apparently head-butting can only be called on the panthers today?
Wow! 49ers getting every call. Boldin acting like a tool again. The refs have to call him for taunting. This is a joke.
Right call. His second foot was clearly out of bounds. That call better not be changed.
He slides the second foot before it goes out if bounds. This is a TD
The best part of that is hot head Bolden comes out to calm down Harabaugh
Jim Harbaugh pulling his best Tom Crean, seriously Jim get ahold of yourself.
Agreed - Crean is a good comparison. Really looked like an ass but I kind of like the passion
Vernon Davis does work in the playoffs
Boldin gets away with jawing the entire drive and they get a TD. This needs to be the last post season game for this group of officials.
I can't wait for the half time interview with Harbaugh!
So the refs also missed 12 men in the huddle on SF on the TD. Refs handing this game to the 49ers. Disgraceful.
Why is Kapernick mocking the other team's QB? Seems unnecessarily incendiary.
The 49ers have spent this entire game taunting and yet the only call that was made went against Carolina. The 49ers are getting the kind off. To get this many calls it usually requires home field and a star QB. The 49ers have neither.
Mocking other players is pretty much par for the course with him. He's always been a douche.
All teams take on the character and personality of their head coach.
I'm sort of surprised to see so much hatred for the 49ers. I thought people in general liked that team. Apparently I was mistaken haha.
It's mostly due to all of their antics after the whistle. I love their offense and their stout defense. Kaepernick is a serios dildo though and he seems to have rubbed off on a lot of his teammates.
Harbaugh, despite hime being a Michigan guy, in my opinion has always been hard to like. Boldin is constantly yapping. Most people hate players like that. Especially when the refs refuse to shut him up.
And then you have Aldon Smith, the one man crime wave who is facing at least I believe an 8 game suspension.
Kind of hard to like a team like that.
49ers are quickly becoming one of the most disliked teams in the league because Harbaugh, kapernick, Boldin and Aldon Smith. They do way to much talking and seem to consistently get way to many calls.
It will be nice watching Seattle hammer them next week.
Sounds a lot like Seattle
I know Sherman loves to talk, but Boldin is on another level entirely.
Uhh Seattle was the most penalized team in the league this year. I'd be very interested to see how many penalties they have when they weren't getting those calls then.
I don't mind the 49ers at all. I like a little chippy football. They are much more enjoyable to watch then teams like the Packers who complain to the refs the whole game.
Your post have been all kinds of fail today. Kaepernick doesn't talk at all but you make the judgement because of his celebration I bet. Boldin I agree needs to cool it, he was frustrating me today. Aldon rarely talks he just gets chippy when he's being chipped at. For Harbaugh the NFL needs more coaches like him and his actions are a showing of his competitiveness.
Where is the consistent calls? I can assure you that they don't get favorable calls, rewatch the game from last week. Watch all games in Seattle for the last 3 seasons and watch next week. It's like playing any sport against Wisconsin.
The only way Jim Harbaugh is good for the NFL is in the way people argue the Miami Heat are good for the NBA and that is as a vilain. This is a Michigan blog and the majority of the opinions that I have seen expressed on hear over the last few years are decidely anti-Harbaugh. So just imagine what the general public's opinion of him must be.
Oh and Kaepernick does talk and was doing it today. For you to say the doesn't is a flat out lie. You can't argue with game footage.
Well thats the end of this game
Manning lucked out with warm weather. They look to be on their game
I'm not sure they made the right call on that fumble.
Whiz calling a conservative game so far.
Peyton is gutting them with that Omaha call. Offsides all over the place.
Speaking of "Omaha", has anyone figured out what that means?
Helpful announcer is helpful.
Surprisingly impressive showing by the Denver D.
What a pick.
This is who the lions want to hire? Hs offense is maybe one step up from a Borges offense. Who am I kidding? He would fit perfectly in Detroit.
Denver D is getting pressure but can't cover
Jimmy H vs. Stinky Pete and in the main event Touchdown Tommy Brady vs. Peyton
And they can be put into college football context: Michigan (or Stanford) vs USC, and Michigan vs. Tennessee. I'm rooting for a Patriots-49ers matchup.
That would be awesome, wouldn't it?
Two former M QB's battling it out in the Super Bowl would be awesome. They are both great competitors.
