First, it was Bowman, not Brooks.
Second, I was referring to the way the ball bounced up to Snelling and he was able to grab it with one hand and get two feet in. Are you seriously going to argue that the INT was all luck and the Onside kick was all skill?
Third, LOL. - wrote that before your double edit
Peeps on here talking about "lucky bounces" really makes me laugh considering the way the Seahawks have won several games late this year (Schaub-Sherman anyone?). To paint this game as "the Niners get the breaks" is laughable. Every good team get some lucky breaks and the 49ers have been on the wrong end of those breaks on many occasions this year. Hell...the flag on Whitner was ridiculous in THAT game.
Corrected Bowman not Brooks.
Every year there are lucky bounces I agree.
Whitner's was a legal hit I agree.
I never claimed the Niners get the breaks and no one else does, but in this instance I said the Niners got the break to win the game. Also never said it was all luck or a negative win in anyway or form, I said it was lucky he was running by at that exact moment *Then proceeded to house it like a man* Notice how I even mentioned how great the whole play was? Unlike some who felt the fumble in CAR caused by Thomas and Sherman was just all luck, with no skill involved. You seem to be the one wanting to fill in the blanks as negatives.
Snelling put himself in a position to make the play on the bounce, Bowman put himself in a position to not make the play on the bounce. Two different efforts put forth.
As far as Niner fans go I enjoy you Marvin, I just feel you put the spin on things a little to hard sometimes.
No worries...my response was more to others than to you even though I quoted you. I bunch of peeps in here saying stuff like "they get all the breaks" etc.
No question, it was a lucky bounce that got the ball into Navorros hands, but it was also an outstanding play by Reid to put a hit on Ryan and force that short throw, it was an outstanding play by Brock to recognize the route and break directly to the ball and prevent the catch, and it was an outstanding play by Bowman to first blitz the A Gap, realize he wasn't going anywhere, end his rush and run to the ball simply to be in place to take advantage of that lucky bounce.
IE, good teams and players put themselves in a position to take advantage of "lucky" bounces.
Seattle has done it several times this year. They themselves have been "lucky" at times, but inferior teams wouldn't have been in a position to take advantage of that Luck if they were less talented or didn't play as hard as they do.
