Super Bowl Face Plant

The 49ers gagged away their past and maybe their future Sunday night, losing disgracefully to the POS Baltimore Ravens 34-31.

They were outcoached and outplayed by an inferior team in the biggest game of the year. Shameful. The 49ers had 300+ yards passing, 100+ yards from Frank Gore, and 100+ yards from Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree. And they still lost.

For the second straight time, the 49er secondary was abused in the first half, looking like clowns in the process. Donte Whitner and Chris Culliver couldn’t cover anybody. And also for the second straight game, the 49er offense diddled away the first half, dug a huge hole, and this time could not recover.

Five times the team drove down into Baltimore territory and came away without a touchdown. Three field goals, a fumble, and the four down fiasco at the end. That’s how you lose winnable games. And 49er OC Greg Roman needs to spend the offseason coming up with some creative red zone plays, because he has stunk all year in that capacity. What he had called for the final play is unknown, because Colin Kaepernick noticed the safeties up on the LOS and audibled to the fade pass to Crabtree. The Baltimore DB then simply held Crabtree, the officials looked the other way, and the game was over.

But good teams don’t need the refs to play good for them to win, or to have the guts to throw a game deciding flag even if it’s an obvious call. They had four shots at the end zone from inside the ten and didn’t get it done.

The game went south in the second quarter on two successive 49er drives. First, rookie RB LaMichael James made the mistake of waving the ball around in one hand while fighting for an extra yard and fumbled away the drive that could have put the 49ers up 10-7. Instead, the Ravens went the other way and made it 14-3.

Then the guy who had spent all week drawing attention to himself as the greatest wide receiver of all time — an insult to 49er fans throughout history who saw Jerry Rice earn that accolade hands down — couldn’t even be bothered to raise his hands, let alone actually jump, for a high pass from Kaepernick that instead flew right to Ravens’ safety Ed Reed. Randy Moss. Puke. He could also be seen standing around at the LOS doing nothing when the play call went somewhere else.

Baltimore coughed away a chance to score then by failing on a fake field goal attempt, but the 49ers seemed rattled, went three and out, and the Ravens then hit a bomb for a 21-3 lead. That swelled to 28-6 after another atrocious half time “performance” when Jacoby Jones ran the second half kick off all the way to the bank.

It should have been “game over” at that point, but the 49ers, to their credit, wouldn’t quit and with two minutes left, they had the ball on the Ravens’ seven yard line with four shots to win the game. They failed. And the dark night of a squandered season has officially begun.

    Some changes are definitely needed
    before the Niners can take another step up.
    Baalke has some hard impact decisions to make and I think he’ll make them that’ll determine
    if we’ll be playing in Super Bowl 48.
    Baalke IMHO is a humble man. He is one of the architects of this team yet he maintained a very low profile during the media frenzied week not seeking any recognition
    for his accomplishments.

  2. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    To be fair, the Ravens had maybe the best Red Zone defense in the league this year. Their lack of speed hurts them between the 20s, but when the field gets tight, they are very hard to score on. Roman should have been better prepared for this. His only Red Zone call I liked was the Gore run behind Iupati and Walker.

  3. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    In hindsight Roman should have dialed up the same play with the variation of CK keeping it on a bootleg to the left.
    At the very least CK should’ve had a scramble play with a run option. They attacked the right side on 3 consecutive plays.

  4. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The secondary needs to reconstructed for the pass defense to get better.
    With Whitner and Goldson they have 2 strong safeties where coverage is not their strength.
    They need a true free safety with natural instincts and a nose for the ball.
    Not sure if it’s Fangio’s scheme or design of his defense but your free safety is supposed to be your stopgap be in a position to make a saving tackle and I don’t see that in Goldson.
    On the play Culliver was burned on Goldson had a shot to make a TD saving tackle at the 5 but
    he took the wrong angle and missed
    Since Whitner is signed and Dashon is a FA this would be one of the hard decisions I would make
    and either draft a true FS or move
    Culliver over.

  5. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    To get back to the Super Bowl next year I would spend the big money and give Mike Wallace the big contract to give CK what he needs a bona fide deep threat that will also make V Davis and Crabtree that much better running the underneath stuff.
    They took a chance with Moss and
    you got what you paid for, a once great receiver who’s on his last legs and should retire. Kyle Williams has played 3 seasons and has been hurt for the majority of 2 of them.
    Manningham has the same problems staying healthy.
    With both coming off season ending injuries they are huge question marks.
    Ginn is a return guy and not a NFL receiver.
    Jenkins has much to prove and is now on the clock to show something
    or join Woods, Rumph and Balmer as
    all time first round busts.
    Wide receiver needs to be addressed both around the 3rd round in the draft and signing a Free Agent like Wallace.
    Niners cannot stand pat on this and expect another Super Bowl run.

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I did not know the fade route at the end was an audible. I was mad at the no call by the ref but not half as upset with the play calling on the last 3 plays.
    You can’t take the options away from the QB. When we rolled to the right we cut the field in half. The fade route says if this option is cut off, there are no other options. We should have gone 4 or 5 wide and told the QB to pick a winning combo. If they blitz a hot read opens up. If they don’t a QB draw probably works. My problem with the play calling from the 5 was the lack of options it gave to our play makers to make a play.

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- There are some voters in the NFL who disagree with you about Goldson. He was picked as one of the 2 best safeties in the league when he made 1st team All-Pro.

  8. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I do agree with looking at Mike Wallace for a WR to take the top off of a defense.

  9. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Moss actually still has the athleticism. He just clearly does not give a shit. Guy puts out less effort than anyone in the league. Getting Wallace is going to be tough, even with Alex leaving, but it’s worth taking a shot.
    Culliver makes some good plays and some not so good ones. He usually seems to play the man okay – in position – but plays the ball very inconsistently in the air. Maybe he can be coached. Rogers was a stopgap who is running out of time. We should have looked hard at Jonathan Joseph in hindsight. Goldson is inconsistent but is way better than Whitner, who fell off hard this season. We should be looking to invest at least two high to middle round draft picks in the secondary. The others in the D-line. Try to get a receiver in FA. Maybe try to draft another as a developmental guy, a small college, raw but big and athletic type.
    Kaepernick’s best days are still ahead of him. That said, you have to provide the supporting cast to win. Baalke is the key now. We have to draft well.

  10. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    One thing about the KO return. On one angle you can see 2 Ravens clearly holding Delanie Walker. He would have been close enough to at least redirect the return man.

  11. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    It is hard to believe the refs weren’t a little off. Cary Williams shoved a ref and did not get tossed. Phil Simms thought Ed Reed not only jumped off side for the 2 point conversion, he thought he lined up off side. There was a blatant holding no call on the KO return as unca mentioned. I thought it was Miller that got held. And of course, the fade route at the end. We still had our chance to win and did not get it done but if we get one call go our way things might be different. Sometimes you get the calls, sometimes you don’t. I can’t blame the officials, we should have won anyway, but it was frustrating.

  12. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I thought they changed the rules where the players in the wedge couldn’t hold hands and clearly
    those guys were doing it if it was a violation.
    Clearly next year the Niners might have to change their mindset and play with the way the officials are calling the game.
    Against the Seahag receivers it’s the CBs mugging them because that’s what they’re doing to us.

    Doing it the “Chicago Way”

  13. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I am perfectly okay with playing a rougher, more physical style. What I don’t like is the mixed messages the league is sending and the inconsistency. One minute it’s, “Don’t hit a poor defenseless receiver!” and the next they’re letting Richard Sherman assault people. Make up your mind, state the rule, level the field, and let’s rumble.

  14. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    My point is the secondary can’t improve with Whitner and Goldson.
    You can get away with one safety not being a good coverage guy. They are being exposed with both
    and it’s been evident.
    Goldson is still going to demand the money and Whitner is under contract so the choice is obvious.
    I want a free safety that is always in the mix for the deep balls.
    I have seen this too many times
    with Goldson. How does he miss this tackle? He did the same thing against the Vikes missing Rudolph.

  15. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Whitner wasn’t near the force he was last year. Goldson is Goldson. Hit and miss. He’s gone. Culliver? Flat terrible game at the worst possible time. Funny the 2 guys that talked the most ended up sucking the most. And that’s Moss and Culliver.

  16. robNo Gravatar says:

    ok GUYS ‘
    It’s february … time to start looking hard at the draft .
    this team is in great shape , and i think they are going to go out and get us our sixth !
    money is on arizona the year after next !

  17. robNo Gravatar says:


    MY money

  18. robNo Gravatar says:


    should we go after CB , WR , D-line or something else come draft time ?

    what should we do in free agency ?

    imho we should look at CB , D-line , WR and RB with all of our draft picks AND in free agency !

  19. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Rob, we’ll kick the tires on Wallace. Whether we can make it work is another thing. But that’s the kind of threat we need on offense.
    I expect a lot of defensive picks in the draft. Linemen and secondary.

  20. winderNo Gravatar says:

    We made way to many mistakes. God, i hate losing especially when we have the better team. Hopefully, this makes Jimbo and Kappy more resoursful and better in the years to come.
    rob – Ur right rob it’s about the draft now.

  21. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I’m not done being pissed yet.

  22. robNo Gravatar says:


    i just can’t help myself !
    i am soo excited about this team !
    imo , with our defense , this QB , harbuagh as HC and jed running the show …

    the future is so bright we gotta wear shades babaay !!!

  23. robNo Gravatar says:


    hmmm you and BERGER seem to be high on wallace ! i know he’s quick , but i’m still not convinced he’s the answer for us ! i do realise we need speed at WR , but suppose both wallace and anquan bolden were available ???


  24. robNo Gravatar says:


    I just read somewhere that wallace isn’t likely to re-sign with pissburgh, so it looks like he might be a free agent we might be able to snag !!

  25. robNo Gravatar says:

    of course

    if we had gone the way i wanted us to this offseason, we would have bypassed both moss and manningham , thrown out a couple mil’ more and gone after vincent jackson !

    omg guess what … we might have won this last game AND not have had to bother with this discussion ! lol

  26. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Boldin has too few miles left on him I think. I’d look instead for a big fast athletic WR from a small school who needs lots of development, in round four or five.
    Berger and I both might like the idea of Wallace, but I will also agree with my Reno buddy that Defensive linemen are a higher priority in the draft. So sayeth the faithful of the Church of Saint Floyd Peters.

  27. robNo Gravatar says:

    need a lift after our last game ?wanna laugh ?

    omg the headline for this video is

    ” mall cop gets surprising support after ‘tasing’ mom of two !–finance.html

    oh god somebody help me !

  28. robNo Gravatar says:


    listen closely for “back it up”

  29. robNo Gravatar says:

    any wonder why atlanta has never won a superbowl lol

  30. FranchiseNo Gravatar says:

    Tackling and special teams was the difference in the game. Brad Seely must have been checking his facebook page during the two point conversion, whilst the punter doing the two-step in the end zone. Disaster. Culliver’s best play of the game was knocking the punter’s ass out of bounds. Dust yourself and learn from it I guess.

  31. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I know we lost, but always look on the bright side of life!

  32. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Next significant event that might be of interest is the Scouting Combine in a few weeks.
    Feb 23-26.

  33. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Offseason homework assignment for
    CK is to learn to run a hurryup no huddle offense.
    They have been wasting too much time huddling when they shouldn’t and it’s painful to watch.
    CK will never get better unless he learns to get out of huddle faster and not let the play clock
    run down where it’s “Beat the Clock” on every other play.
    We should expect significant improvement on both of these basics.

  34. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’m very high on CB David Amerson from NC St.
    He looks like an easy conversion to FS.
    I had thought about Culliver going there but, after last night, he looked lost trying to find a pass that resembled a punt.
    All the more reason to keep the Darrelle Revis topic in play.
    As for WRs in April, Aaron Mellette from Elon is a tall guy with good hands, might see him in Rd 3 or 4.
    We absolutely have to add to our DL rotation too.
    Our starters rarely come off the field.

  35. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, Kaep played in 10 games.
    He stood toe to toe with Flacco on the biggest stage in football.
    He’s got plenty to learn but, he’s a gamer.
    I have no issues with Kaep.
    Sky is the limit for him.
    He needs weapons on the outside.
    We dearly missed Manningham in this game.
    If AJ continues to play Casper the friendly ghost, we’re in trouble.
    I’ll put my money on Baalke, he knows what he’s got to do.

  36. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    We call two plays in the huddle. There is no hurry up when the coach decides that is how we call plays.

  37. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Heard rumors before the SB that Philly was waiting on Ed Donatell to fill their DC position.
    Please, take him.
    He’s our DBs Coach.
    His group got exposed at the worst possible time.
    We will surely be adding DBs to this Roster come April.

  38. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Aldon Smith went 5 weeks without a sack after reaching 19.5.
    The secondary is being picked apart because opposing QBs are
    too comfortable and getting to look at 4 options.

  39. robNo Gravatar says:

    so keep on laughing as you … go and remember

    THE LAST LAUGH is always on you !!!

  40. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Something is definitely wrong with Aldon.
    Curious what we’ll hear about the myserious shoulder injury too.
    Was it ever disclosed where the stab wound from his party was?
    I see another Pass Rusher coming from this Draft too.

  41. robNo Gravatar says:


    i was pretty surprised and pleasantly so when our name came up in the revis thing !

    kind of reminds me of the good old days !

    thank goodness for a coach like jim harbuagh and an owner like jed !

  42. robNo Gravatar says:

    imho aldon smith will be just fine !

  43. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Big if with Revis Rob.
    ACL injuries are never as easy as Adrian Peterson made them look.
    Especially for a position like CB.
    Will be an interesting option to consider though.
    After seeing Culliver look lost most of the night, a proven shut down CB like Revis is worth his weight in big games.

  44. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Our Secondary is the weak link and needs to be upgraded.
    As we know, pass rush pressure and coverage goes hand in hand.
    Neither Whitner or Goldson are known for coverage.
    I see at least several taller CBs in this Draft class that could transition to FS.
    Mentioned Amerson already.
    Eric Reid from LSU and DJ Swearinger from SC are already playing the FS position.
    Plenty to dissect once the Combines get going.
    All in all, there are plenty of choices to be sifted through for the Secondary.
    Baalke will come through.

  45. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    We have a pair of Carlton Williamson/Tim McDonald style safeties and need a Dwight Hicks/Merton Hanks type for balance.

  46. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Do the Niners want another 38 year old kicker?
    The Browns said they won’t re-sign
    their kicker Phil Dawson.
    Dawson had a Pro Bowl year hitting 93.5% of his FG attempts including 6 of 6 in the 40 yard range and 7 of 7 from beyond 50 yards.
    Browns had put the franchise tag on Dawson last year.
    If Niners go away from Akers this might be a 3 year solution

  47. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    How will Baalke/Harbaugh proceed in restocking the team?
    If their goal is to get Gore/Justin Smith their Super Bowl ring then they’ll spend in Free Agency for immediate needs because they have a 2-3 year window. That means spending to sign a Mike Wallace who fulfills immediate needs.
    Putting Crabtree, Mike Wallace, Manningham and Vernon Davis out there is a defensive soordinator’s nightmare with CK as the triggerman.

  48. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I have read the Jest might trade Revis for Alex Smith and the Niners #1 draft pick.
    Bad idea on 2 counts. Revis is coming off an injury and his contract is voidable after 2013.
    That deal would stink because Revis will go to the highest bidder.
    Also read that Nnamdhi might get released by the Egos. That might be a better short term solution although he is now 32 years old.

  49. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Here’s a guy I really like, Jonathan Banks CB Miss State.
    The guys that did this video actually make some good points.
    To your point on Culliver they say that Banks always knows where the ball is.
    Late first early secon he might be there for the Niners to pluck.

  50. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    It’s been assumed we would have won the game if we’d scored at the end, but there would have been over a minute and a half left. As bad as our defense was playing, that would have been plenty of time for the Ravens to move down the field and kick the game winning FG.

  51. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Which isn’t to say we didn’t choke down there, because we did – especially Harbaugh and Kaepernick.

  52. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Our defense is solid and among the best.
    What’s missing the element of surprise where the offense doesn’t know which guys might blitz. Fangio is making it too easy for the offensive line to make their blocking assignments.
    There is nothing more terrifying to a QB than to have a guy unblocked in your face.
    Chaos and confusion creates havoc with an offense and that’s the missing element of this defense.
    Shake it up and roll the dice
    because in the playoffs the opponents scored on average almost 30 points a game on you.

  53. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Harbaugh as much as said the team will sign Goldson to a long term deal.

  54. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    There are two guys in the world that blame Kaepernick in the loss. You and Kaep, and Kaepernick was simply taking the blame as a leader as he should.
    Kaepernick could have played better at times but at least he wasn’t taking sacks to protect his completion percentage stats.
    If only Alex could have been in there…sniff, sniff.

  55. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I’ll believe it when I see it, Skeebs. I wouldn’t sign Goldson for any more than his original 3/25 deal.
    Kappy changed the 4th down play because he saw max blitz. Cover zero. Without the hold, Crabs catches that ball. So it was a good play on Balt’s part. As were theother holding calls that weren’t. There was nothing much more to do there. Pinning this on Kappy is ludicrous, Skeebs.

  56. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Actually, what’s ludicrous, Chuck, is your reading comprehension. I didn’t pin the loss on Kaepernick. I’d put that blame on the defense (see the previous post). All I said was he choked at the end – which he did. He fixed on Crabtree on three straight passes, ignoring a wide open Walker, playing right into Baltimore’s hands. He also couldn’t get the QB run to the left off in time, forcing a TO, but not before exposing what that play would have been, negating being able to use it. Brent Jones said the offense panicked at the end and I concur.

  57. robNo Gravatar says:


    IMHO if we had put in alex smith on the last set of downs we would have won the game !

  58. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Well, Skeebs, a wide open Walker is hardly a sure thing. I don’t call him Venus de Milo for nothing.
    The real shame was the clock fiasco that led to the timeout. That play was going to be Kaepernick running, and I think he would have scored.
    But I’ve said the same thing you did earlier: even *IF* we scored, it’s better than 50-50 that Flacco leads the Ravens to the winning FG. Flacco was on fire Sunday, in the Montana Zone, making plays out of nothing, and I don’t think our D could have stopped him.

  59. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Grump, when we got to the seven, I assumed we’d score and started worrying about whether we’d make the two point conversion for a three point lead that would at least get us to overtime. Fizzingly out at that point was pretty much an unexpected shock.

  60. robNo Gravatar says:


    KAP had it imho ! if only we had gotten that play off on time !
    we might have been just one second away from winning the superbowl !

  61. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So the Rams become the home of the wayward players and pickup Titus Young and Rob Ryan is hired as the Aint’s DC extending their reputation with employment of the douche coaches.

  62. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The play calls inside the 10, with Ngata out and, Leonard, Kilgore etc available to steam roll the Baltimore interior DLine, I would have preferred using the run options over throwing in a condensed area.
    The clock concerns would have been insignificant because, we had our timeouts, and the ball.
    This is more on Coaching IMO.
    I’m not about crying over ‘what if’ on a non PI call to Crabtree.
    We’re a running Team first.
    We had success getting there using the run game.
    Why stop using it inside the 10?
    That which doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger.

  63. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit I too like CB Banks, among others.
    Banks tackles too.
    Good option if he slides.
    Take a look at Robert Alford from
    SEastern LA too.
    A little shorter, perhaps a twitch quicker than Banks.
    I’m also hoping for Desmond Trufant to get past the Field of Picks ahead of too.
    He’s a bird dog in coverage as well.
    I’ll be paying close attention to the CBs and WRs at the Combines.
    I truly feel we’ll put a higher priority on the DBs over the DTs at this point.
    See how it unfolds.

  64. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Another thought I have, related to QB pressure options, is LB Khaseem Greene from Rutgers.
    He’s a nice fit for the Nickel IMO.
    He is similar in size to Patrick and outgrew his previous position at S.
    Schiano moved him to LB while he was there.
    Greene has excellent hands, tackles like a maniac and, covers and blitzes very well.
    I took Chase Thomas off my ‘Board’ and have Greene there now.

  65. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’ve seen Mocks showing Banks going in the Top 20.
    He certainly would be a nice option if he reaches 31.
    If we opt to wait for the DL help, either DT or DE, CB and S would make alot of sense with the early Picks.
    In a perfect world, Alex would net us an extra 2 this year.
    That would allow us some flexibility, since we already hold 2 Picks in Rd 3.

  66. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s a little write up related to Trufant from the College Sr Bowl.

  67. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I think we take the best available player between CB and DL.

  68. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    DT Shariff Floyd would be a steal

  69. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Berger I’m starting to wonder if we could make a similar move toward the Fat Man in the Middle that Baltimore did with TCody several years ago.
    He was a slob coming out of college but spent time in their system getting into condition.
    RJF is a DE, He won’t be an answer for us inside.
    I’m not sold on Jenkins from UGA because of those concerns but, maybe he can be a TCody?

  70. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Maybe Baalke and Fangio could look for the rotation piece that plays the plugger?
    Large space eater that holds point?

  71. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’m impressed with DE Craig Roh from Michigan too.
    He’s likely going to be around later in Day 2, maybe Day 3.
    High motor guy that likely translates to a 5T.
    6’5″ 270.
    We need rotational guys.
    Another DT I could see in the later Rd area is Josh Boyd from Miss St.
    He played with Fletcher Cox last year and was better suited to the run stuffer role.
    6’3″ 300.

  72. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    After watching our ST unit get jacked up on the Jacoby Jones KR, we also need to pay some attention to guys that can tackle.
    We have too many starters playing on ST assignments.
    Maybe we could afford to get Goldson and Miller off that assignment with some speedy LB or DB options?
    Zavier Gooden, Sio Moore, Johnathan Cyprien etc?

  73. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    IIRC, The NT from the Ravens is a FA. His name is Ma’ake Kemoeatu, or something like that? He’s not great but he is good.
