What about the late hit on Flacco that wasn't called on 3rd down in the red zone?
Calls get missed on both sides, blaming officials is horrible. Don't leave it in the officials hands because you are not going to like the result. Hell when I officiate I am happy when both coaches are pissed at me. It means I did my job.
Should have been holding or interference on Baltimore on 4th and goal. Niners probably score with 4 chances.
It was absolutely catchable.
How do you not run a bootleg on one of those last two plays?
I think it was a good no-call, but if it was a defensive holding call it doesn't matter if the ball is catchable
How can you judge if a ball is catchable considering the holding that occurred prior? Some of you people are ignorant.
At least somebody else on this board has a damn a clue.
Figured out why Harbaugh didn't let Kaepernick get a running play on that last drive....he was a 2-star.

That wasn't a late hit. If CBS had someone with an IQ above 30 doing the game, no one would have thought that was a late hit. Simms said it was a late hit because he was out of bounds except he wasn't out of bounds.
You officiate? That explains a lot.
Thank you, Denicos.
Don't think it mattered anyways because SF would have declined since it would have meant more time coming off the clock if they accepted it
Whether there will be a safety is a prop bet with huge odds. I'm sure a lot of people in Vegas were very happy or really pissed about that decision.
Lol Skip Bayless twitter:
"Come on, Jimmy Smith held him for two yards. I realize it's "let 'em play" at this point, but by the letter of the law, that was a hold."
"More replays I see, that HOLDING HAS TO BE CALLED. 1st and goal at the 1."
"Hate to see Super Bowl decided by such a flagrant noncall"
WRs are not allowed to push off on defenders heads.
Smart Football @smartfootball
That delay penalty was huge for SF. Called off probably their best play - quarterback counter - and lost timeout they sure could use now
Well that settles it
That football they're stood in for the trophy presentation is pure class.

I'm going to bed tonight saying a prayer that Ray Lewis doesn't murder anyone by the time I wake up.
I can't agree with Skip Bayless on anything, so I guess I change my view on that play.
Yep. If Bayless says it should have been called, then it shouldn't have.
even while they are being held with 2 arms? So the WR doesn't have a right to try and get loose from the holding? lol
-1 for bringing that D Bag up
I'm going to bed saying a prayer Lennay Kekua doesn't die again.
no it wouldn't have been at the 1, it would have been at the 2.5 ( half the distance )...the refs were letting them play as evidenced by the obvious out of bounds hit on Flacco on 3rd and goal on the last drive in which they kicked the FG
