Great finish. They deserve it.
couldn't believe no one gave john harbaugh flack for the non time out call up 4 with 230 left clock running. He would have traded a time out for thirty seconds and the two minute warning (as san fran was going to have to pass), which is huge if they would have needed to get a fg to tie/win.
John outcoached Jim.
Well played. But I don't get why Ginn didn't fair catch. The odds of a hail
Mary have to better than the odds of a return.
And if you figure that the 49ers get one play (hail Mary) and they have to complete it to win - it doesn't matter whether the Ravens take the safety. But it did run then clock down to ensure that they only had one play.
But if the 49ers fair catch either way - the safety only eliminates the possibility of two 49ers plays.
