  • Mike Carey's call on the Thomas ruffing the passer, that negated Wagner's Int in Miami's endzone and gave Miami 1st down and goal cost us the #2 seed. Thanks Mike Carey.

    As for the 9ers getting the two seed I say good, that puts them directly in our path. There will be no sweeter victory this year than demolishing the 9ers in their house to end their season on our way to the NFC championship.

  • I said it after the Lions game. That was the one that cost us. Sure, any of them cost us. The early games are understandable, as Wilson and the offense still taking baby steps. The Lions game was the first the offense won for us only to see the defense lose it for us. And if we'd have learned the lesson we learned after the Dolphins game after the Lions game, we wouldn't have lost it.

    Except the Packers game was the right call. The wrong call in that game was the phantom PI against us that kept their go ahead scoring drive alive on what would have been a 4th down.

    Rich is correct. Golden Tate's magnificent simultaneous catch at the end for the TD and the win was 100% the right call based on how the rule is written. Go cry somewhere else, emo kid.

  • OP has it right. The dolphins loss hurts most. We played well offensively but couldn't stop a rookie QB on multiple third downs when it counted. The earlier losses we hadn't quite gelled yet, the Dolphins game , we should have won. Would have had a bye. Damn.

  • Packers fans' boards probably have a thread in this vein (Fail Mary cost us the #2 seed).

    We're in the playoffs. Let's talk about how we're going to go into Dallas/Washington and dog slap an NFC East darling.

  • Someone recently posted a video of all the bad calls in the Packers game. The part I though was hilarious was the announcer stating during the catch that Tate was going for possession and even mentioned simultaneous possession and then of course goes turn coat and says it was an Int. But in the heat of the moment, he was saying simultaneous catch all the way.

  • Cant boil anything down to one play, or even one game. If thing's went how 'they're supposed to' the NFL season would be over in August. If San Fran had done what everyone expected and beat St Louis twice we wouldnt be having this convo. At the end of the day we're playoff bound with a team on a hot streak, our future is in our own hands now so GO HAWKS

  • That's why I was so livid and critical after those losses. They hurt us, especially the Miami game, as it was late in the season. We've played about as well as a team can play since then, but it was too late.

  • Things like this are an exercise in futility. Every team loses games they "shouldn't," so if we want to say things like this we need to look at the other teams and they games they dropped as well.

    I remember after that game saying that a playoff team doesn't lose that game, so I'm content with where we are at.

  • So what? I don't get the fixation on the close games we lost and not thinking about the close games we won.

    It's all part of the process, I like where were at and I'm not going to play the "What if" game.

  • Between the 49ers and Seahawks, there are 17 different outcomes you could point to as the difference maker. The Dolphins game was just one of those outcomes.

    Me, I'm taking the high road and blaming the Rams. Jeff Fisher shouldn't have taken that delay of game in OT dammit!

    Yes, he IS right. You're part of the mob that should be ashamed of yourselves.

    http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com/co ... git/17706/

    Step One: Control

    Anyways, the very first frame shows the most important element that so many have missed: Golden Tate controls the ball before Jennings.

    This video from another analysis does a good job of showing the zoomed-in view, and Tate gets his left hand in between Jennings and makes the one-handed catch before Jennings closes his hands around the ball. Here is a cap from that video.


    Image

    Hardly the best quality, but you can see Jennings’ helmet and space between his hands and the ball as Tate catches it first. Here are the first four frames to show the point of first contact with the ball (click here for huge image).


    Image

    In the first frame the ball has yet to arrive. It does in the second, and it is stopped by Tate’s left hand with Jennings yet to touch it. The ball does not even move in the third and fourth frames, as Tate’s hand is holding it up the whole time as Jennings wraps his two hands around it.

    Tate controls the ball with his left hand throughout the whole play. He controlled the ball even before Jennings did, because he touched it first as we have already seen. He has control, and you do not need two hands or arms for control. It is ridiculous how people are ignoring the fact that one-handed catches are made all the time.


    You should read the rest, it continues showing clearly that it was a legitimate catch and even shows Tate got his feet down first as well.

    You should stop it.

  • It was a catch. Sure, there was OPI on Tate that was ignored, but so what? The refs got the catch part correct.
    I'm with others, let's call it the "Wail Mary" play because of pathetic Wailing of butt-hurt Packer fans.
    There was minimal media attention for the Super Bowl XL officiating debacle.
    All Packers had to do was beat the Vikings today. Still wailing... hope their silly fixation with that game gets them beat against the Vikings in round 1.

    Not only was it blatant pass pass interference, it was also an interception. The only people that don't think so are Seahawks fans (shocking).

    Please find one instance in the history of the NFL that an offensive pass interference has ever been called on a hail Mary and I will happily agree with you but if you can't find one then will you agree with me? If not then I think you are the one being
    ridiculous and ignoring facts that are put in front of you.
