Oh sure. The Rams pass rush had absolutely nothing to do with what you call a bogus safety call. A call that the officiating crew stood by even after the game. And Kaep wasn't trying to avoid a blitzing Rams defender when he made that horrible pitch. And, of course, Tedd Ginn wasn't trying to pick up the ball when Janoris Jenkinks went through him to get it. He was just standing there watching the play.
1) The call was incorrect. There is no argument. Look up the rule. The ball passed the LOS out of bounds. That's not Intentional Grounding. It makes no difference where the pass rush was because that has nothing to do with the faulty ruling.
2) It was a read option play. He pitched when he was supposed to but it was a bad pitch. The blitzing defender didn't have anything to do with it other than forcing the pitch that was in the play design on the read.
3) Janoris Jenkins made a good play on the ball. Good for him. Ginn made something less than a good effort.
4) Are you seriously arguing this? The Rams were PATHETIC all day on offense and only won because of mistakes by the refs and the 49ers. Just accept the gift and move on dude. Trying to make it out as something more is pathetic.
Wow? You can say that again.
I point out that the Rams forced some of the so called poor efforts. You come back with a faulty call the officials stood by even after the game which was besides my point. The entire situation never happens without the force by the defense.
On the pitch play, the blitzing defender obviously surprised Kaepernick as he was in his face immediately after he faked the handoff which led to the bad pitch.
At least you changed your tune regarding Ginn making no effort on the ball. Geez.
It's obvious that in your mind, no one can beat the 49ers but the 49ers. The opposing team cannot force errors at all.
