this loss still ******* stings.

its going to be a long offseason and im not even as excited as i thought id be. picking 31st in the draft is just a reminder that we're 2nd best in the league, and NOT SB champions.

I still can't understand why we didn't the run the damn in the last min to score. It would of been better then a fade pass or at least a up and in kind of rout. Heck why not even try a QB draw play or HB draw. Something else had to worked out better. What I also don't is they damn clock run all lot in that last 2 mins which dumb too.

We just have a lot of holes to fix on our defense before it gets back to 2011 style and our offense needs to get back to basis and start back with west coast offense . Remove the damn pistol!Yes remove it. Start now so you don't have to change it later down the road. It won't keep in a few plays but don't use and our main formation sets. When we ran last night it worked great. So I don't understand to bail out on the ran and 3 straight pass plays at the end. I mean we had their d line pushed back and wiped out.

Jim's excuse is freaking lame "we had plays called" already or what ever he said is just dumb.

This.

I'm still pissed too. My GF came over today before going to work, got laid and im still not happy which is definitely saying something. The loss sucks. Didnt think they were going to lose. Really thought that last night was the start of a new 49ers Dynasty but I was way off.

Defense has become worse than our offense. Justin Smith wasnt anywhere near 100% and Aldon Smith was non-existent. The secondary was bad as they got their asses kicked. Only forced fumble by Brown was good. Other than that, all bad. Granted, they held BAL to only 6 points but thats not good when you have BAL in 3rd and long and cant get the hell off the field. Not having any good depth on the DL and not having another pass rusher really hurt us.

Offensively, the play calling at the end sucked. The main thing that hurt us though was the James fumble and worse, three 49ers were just standing there and didnt even go for the fumble recovery. That started a chain reaction. Kaep's INT was just him forcing it like Smith against the Giants. Other than that, Kaep had a good game and impressed me in the second half with his ability to bring the team back. Shame the defense couldnt get stops on third downs.

We do need another receiver opposite Crabtree. I honestly still want Wallace and dont care if he costs $10m a year. A huge redzone target would be good via the draft but at the same time, we have Davis and he's rarely used so I dont even think that would make much if any difference unless its a Calvin Johnson type and dont see that happening.

Defensively, I want Rogers gone. Too much money, too old and too slow. Couldnt even keep up with bOldin. I still live Culliver and think that he's going to be a damn good corner but leaving him out to dry on that pass to Jones was just a bad defensive play call. We need more depth on the DL including Justin's replacement. Also, another pass rusher. Would like to see Jean Francois start at NT since Sopoaga is an UFA and I wouldnt bring him back. Would also like a huge center, 6'5, 300+ pounds like the rest of the OL because Goodwin is definitely the weak link.

Other than that, Roman and Harbaugh need to do a better job at managing the clock and with play calling. They never should have taken that second time out. Should have taken the delay of game penalty especially since they were going to pass anyway. Having 10 yards instead of 5 makes a huge difference.

Oh well, maybe I'll win the Super Bowl in Madden NFL 13 but after starting 2-0, im 2-2 so I dont see that happening either. Just a crappy day yesterday.

And more than anything, team needs to become more mature than what they showed last night. Team is definitely better than how they played last night but they need to ******* prove it in every game period.

The non-call PI that I had the biggest problem with was on the long ball that was just off of Crabtree's fingertips. The defender grabbed Crabtree twice on the play.
Bowman didn't blantanly hold anyone. Watch the play again, White comes and makes contact with Bowman, Bowman holds his ground and pushes him off his mark and disrupts the route. They dissected the play on NFL Turning Point. Bowman knew where White was going, he just beat him there. And like I said, anything goes within 5 yards. It was clearly within the 5 yard boundary so ALL contact is legal, even holding if that were the case. Ryan should have went to Gonzales, he seemed to have Brown beat on a slant route and Goldson looked a step late. But he saw White on a Bowman and went with the better match-up. But Bowman recognized the formation.

By playing as well over those 10 starts as you're capable of. There's no growth potential for him given his talent level. He has a hitch in his throwing motion and a tendency to run that will limit him.

He left some alot of yards and plays out there. That being said, he was still impressive. He more than held his own with Flaaco. He's still being molded and sculpted by Jimbaugh. He's by no means, a finishied product. I said when he was drafted he needed 3 years on the bench to be a viable option as starter. He's already ahead of schedule. The WCO takes about that time for most QBs to really know the ins and outs and really understand the nuances of the scheme.
The 49ers aren't running the ******* WCO. Jesus. Get with the program.

Quote:
The problem is Roman has gone heavy-handed with the spread looks. Part of that is because its been successful so far and its caught defenses off guard. Part of it is because CK's footwork still needs a ton of work, when dropping from under center. He overstrides alot and too often his feet go dead, staring at his first read. All that can be repped out.
No it can't. No QB has ever changed his mechanics and been successful. You live with the quirks, and that's going to be the problem with him.

The only improvement with him is we may see fewer delay of game penalties in the future. But other than that, he's already playing the way he would if he had 7 years experience.

I will say this: while it sucks going 5-1 in the SB, every big time franchise thats made it to the SB multiple times has lost a SB at least once.

Packers, Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys, Raiders, Redskins, Giants, Dolphins- all 8 teams have won superbowls at least 3 times, and all at least lost it once. Now the 49ers join this group. The price you pay to make multiple SB's is you're bound to lose one eventually. Couldn't keep 5-0 forever.

Besides these 9 teams, every other team is either .500 (1-1 like the Bears and Chiefs, 2-2 like the Colts), or below .500 (Broncos 2-4, Rams 1-2), or just plain winless (10 teams have made it to a SB at least once and have yet to win, while another 4 haven't made it at all).

Only undefeated teams in the SB now are Jets (won theirs over 40 years ago), Bucs, and Saints. All teams are 1-0. And of course the Ravens....the only team now to make multiple SB's and win, at a 2-0 SB record.

So while it sucks, we'll be back there with Harbaugh again. Just like John had to suffer playoff defeat after defeat (from 08-11), Jim will have to take his licks until he wins it one day. And he will. But that could be next year or 4 years away.

Screw Moss, i feel terrible for Justin and Gore. Wanted them to get a ring so bad.

This is still stinging badly....feels like a bad dream; a horrible, piece of $hit nightmare actually. I'm still stunned that they didn't bring it all the way back. With so many mistakes and bad calls, they came entirely too close to winning this thing to not feel at least a little jobbed and befuddled on how they let it slip through their hands.

The Niners were NOT over-matched in this game; they just let is slide too far out of control before taking the reigns. Nobody could seemingly stop them (again) once they got the momentum. They played this dangerous come-from-behind game and it finally bit them in the ass. If they came to play in the first half and had literally anything go their way, this game would have been a runaway in the second half. Just down right ****ing disappointing to end a perfect Super Bowl record and a long-awaited opportunity to win #6 when I felt like they had earned it; that they were truly the better team; they wanted it more; that they could win in so many different ways.

There is a great silver lining with the team but I'm just not feeling it right now. I'll be happier about that when next season starts. Until then, this just ****ing sucks. Ray Lewis didn't earn ****.

Draft/FA needs:
NT that gets a push up the middle and is a space/double-team eater
Cover Corner (or two)
WR (Bigger, Red Zone Threat)
3rd OLB/Pass Rushing Specialist
O-Line Depth (Preferably at Tackle)

Please ppl, no one is as mad as me but stop saying the defense is worthless and this player and that player needs to be replaced. That's typical knee-jerk reactions. The players aren't the problem. I repeat, THE PLAYERS AREN'T THE PROBLEM. To play the way Fangio wants, we need at least four rotational pass-rushers so guys can stay fresh. Without a consistent pass-rush, we can't survive running those man under looks Fangio loves so much. I thought Haralson might be a cap casualty but looking at the pass-rushers in FA, it would probably be best to keep him for around 3 mil. Fleming and Cam Johnson will get to prove themselves as second year players. So that's a start. But we have to tweak the scheme. Its paramount. Fangio and Jimbaugh need to see the trends and make changes to how they defend certain formations and personnel. You leave little margin for error they way they are currently calling the defensive plays. We defintely need a disruptive force at DT in the draft. Even before his injury, Cowboy looked to be slowing down. Now that his age is creeping up, it'd be nice to limit his snaps going forward and find a young guy in the draft who is more physically imposing and who can apprentice under him for a season or two. We get Haralson back and maybe a young guy to step up on the outside. And get a nice disruptive DT to rotate in with Cowboy and Ray Mac and the back four will look like they did back in 2011.

I like a lot of our young players on that side of the ball and their potential. Trenton Robinson, Michael Thomas, Jerod-Eddie. Even a kid like Stupar who we just picked up and looks to be a STs guy while also moon-lighting at FB. Another solid draft and I feel will be in a good place. The offense is trending upward with CK so I'm not too concerned with that side of the ball. It'll be interesting what they do with Walker and if they indeed bring him back. Only the pessimist in me says we been back-to-back with two deep playoffs runs. And the NFC is getting tougher and tougher. Seattle is a serious threat. The Falcons and Packers will looked to improve their defenses and be more formidable. I'm certain the G-Men will bounce back. It will be extremely hard to make the NFCCG three years in a row. Yesterday was our shot and I think we blew it. Not that we won't get another one with Jimbaugh but I don't think it will be next year. Its going to be tough moving forward, as key players come up for free agency and tough decisions have to be made. We can't realistically keep a team of Pro Bowlers. That why yesterday stings so much. This team has too much talent to come out the gate like they did. They didn't seize the opportunity. A opportunity that may be harder and harder to achieve, as the talent on this team gets harder and harder to keep intact.

Yes, it's going to be very hard to keep the defense together. I've been impressed with Baltimore over the last few seasons being able to keep together a good defense with a decent offense. Not surprising they finally got a ring. Seattle is going to be a huge problem. Not sure how that will play out moving forward. One of the main reasons I wanted to win now. Everyone will now be a year older with the team too. Kaepernick looks like the franchise quarterback for the future. He wasn't the reason we lost the game last night so that's good. Frank Gore will probably never get a ring though, so that's painful. At least he played in the big dance. I said before that if at least these guys had an opportunity to win a Super Bowl, that would be great. Now we'll have to see if they can get back there. It's going to be real tough.

It's hard to go to the Super Bowl and win it. It really is. BUT, I do NOT believe the Niners window for a ring is closed with this regime; it's really just beginning.

Harbaugh has had the team overachieve in both his first 2 seasons. The owners and FO (managing salary cap well) and coaching staff (finally not getting out-schemed on a week to week basis) are finally on the same page and working together, creating stability. They finally look to have a game-changing Franchise QB at the helm who is just getting his feet wet at the position and has immense upside. The team has a majority of it's key players already under long term contracts and has depth at many positions, with the most amount of draft picks currently in April's Draft to add more depth as needed.

I know Gore and Justin Smith don't have a lot of time left and if there were ever two guys who deserved a ring, it's them. I hope the Niners keep this window open as there is significant evidence to show that they are easily one of the favorites to make a deep run in the playoffs again next year.

The loss yesterday sucked bu the sky is not falling gentlemen. Continue to be among the 49er faithful.

The window for a SB contender is larger when you have a top QB. And Kaep is dynamic and only 25. We also have a top HC. So with a top QB and HC, we have a large window.

That being said, the NFC is tough. Falcons, Packers, Saints, Seahawks, and Giants are all tough contenders. Thats not counting any potential surprise teams which could rise up and take our spot in the playoffs.

I like our matchup against anyone in the AFC EXCEPT the Ravens and a healthy Steelers squad. We matchup well with a lot of these NFC teams too but in a 1 and done playoff scenario, we can easily lose to any of them. We always make terrible mistakes in the playoffs- fumbles (williams, james), terrible redzone play in the SB, etc.

I do think we'll win a SB with Harbaugh and Kaep, potentially multiple, but i don't know if it will be next year. Maybe

The window for our offense is opening, defense is closing. We're getting old there and we need a youth infusion at DL and another pass rusher at OLB.

obviously, im just saying with good QB play you'll have a better chance than not.

I stay calm and collected for the most part.

But my hope was cracked when the same thing I saw in the regular season and vs GB happened again.

When we were backed up and on 2nd down I think.

The force to Moss on a comeback to his left. Was one of those plays where he never thought about his option to the right. Gore was wide open with the defended 10 yards off him.


The 2nd play on Goal to Go. Crabtree turn and the throw should of been winding up then. The lane looked clear. He wouldn't of scored I don't think but would of been 3rd and Goal at the 2.
Next play to Crab was covered and I think Delanie "hands" Walker was open as the D focused on Crabs. Crazy how he caught everything in this game.

And the softer alley-oop pass was something that was never in tune and was at a place where Crabby would of had to of made a great catch even if he wasn't held.

The 1st shot in the endzone early to Crabtree was a high fastball when it wasn't called for.


Missing the easy stuff a little too much was brushed away cause we won and looked cool doing it.
But we were almost never consistent.

Nothing should be assumed.
This is true. Sad, but true. At the same time there are quarterbacks in the Hall of Fame that never even made it.

It just sucks so, so much that we've made 2 straight NFCCG's and 1 Super Bowl and have 0 rings to show for it.

We could win the next 2 superbowls, lose the next 2, or never make it.

I really, really don't want to become the next 2000 Eagles. Great team, 4 straight NFCCG's, class of the NFC, but no rings to show for it. Reid gets shoved out the door after a decade of success and they're back to square 1.

I was thinking about this earlier. Same thing with 1990's Bills. Obviously none of us wants that, but the reality is that that hasn't happened yet and this team has an opportunity go get back to the Super Bowl in the next few years.

Defense has become worse than our offense. Justin Smith wasnt anywhere near 100% and Aldon Smith was non-existent. The secondary was bad as they got their asses kicked. Only forced fumble by Brown was good. Other than that, all bad. Granted, they held BAL to only 6 points but thats not good when you have BAL in 3rd and long and cant get the hell off the field. Not having any good depth on the DL and not having another pass rusher really hurt us.

Offensively, the play calling at the end sucked. The main thing that hurt us though was the James fumble and worse, three 49ers were just standing there and didnt even go for the fumble recovery. That started a chain reaction. Kaep's INT was just him forcing it like Smith against the Giants. Other than that, Kaep had a good game and impressed me in the second half with his ability to bring the team back. Shame the defense couldnt get stops on third downs.

We do need another receiver opposite Crabtree. I honestly still want Wallace and dont care if he costs $10m a year. A huge redzone target would be good via the draft but at the same time, we have Davis and he's rarely used so I dont even think that would make much if any difference unless its a Calvin Johnson type and dont see that happening.

Defensively, I want Rogers gone. Too much money, too old and too slow. Couldnt even keep up with bOldin. I still live Culliver and think that he's going to be a damn good corner but leaving him out to dry on that pass to Jones was just a bad defensive play call. We need more depth on the DL including Justin's replacement. Also, another pass rusher. Would like to see Jean Francois start at NT since Sopoaga is an UFA and I wouldnt bring him back. Would also like a huge center, 6'5, 300+ pounds like the rest of the OL because Goodwin is definitely the weak link.

Other than that, Roman and Harbaugh need to do a better job at managing the clock and with play calling. They never should have taken that second time out. Should have taken the delay of game penalty especially since they were going to pass anyway. Having 10 yards instead of 5 makes a huge difference.

Oh well, maybe I'll win the Super Bowl in Madden NFL 13 but after starting 2-0, im 2-2 so I dont see that happening either. Just a crappy day yesterday.

And more than anything, team needs to become more mature than what they showed last night. Team is definitely better than how they played last night but they need to ******* prove it in every game period.

Rodgers has one good year left at least, I would keep him around and add another corner through draft or FA to promote competition and depth.

Centers are so hard to come by that we may be stuck with Goodwin one more year.

Agree that Sopoaga should be let go unless we can get him very cheap.

I would really like to get Dwayne Bowe, I know he's not the vertical threat that Mike Wallace is but having Bowe and Crabtree would be a dream.

I dont know how the Dolphins team was around Marino but the team around Kaepernick is still pretty damn good. The main reason we lost is what I have said throughout the season, they think that if they just show up, they'll win. I have said it a bunch of times. You cant expect a damn thing. You want to win??? If so, you have to go out and TAKE the win, as opposed to expecting it to be handed to you. Also, team needs to grow the **** up quick. They're way too immature. Especially on defense. Ravens wanted to win and they took the win. We let them. Plain and simple.

Team hasnt had that aggressive killer instinct in a long time and still dont have it. I was watching PFT last Friday and one of the guys on the show picked the 89 49ers as the best Super Bowl team because they went 14-2, lost both games by a combined 8 points or something like that but in the playoffs including the 55-10 demolishment of the Broncos in the Super Bowl, they won all three playoff games by 27 points or more. Thats a dominant team with a killer instinct that instead of taking their foot of their opponent's throat, they push all the way down until its crushed.

As much as I love Harbaugh and him wanting to win so badly, he needs to stop acting like a sore loser and a crybaby on the sideline. Instead of complaining about the non-call at the end, he should have set his team up to go after the punter and try to get him, hold him up and strip the ball before taking him down (or in our case, knocking him out of bounds). Harbaugh worries too much about bad calls or whatever instead of just focusing on the next play and making the most of that next play.

With all that said, it still sucks as I never expected them to lose and in fact, to win by double digits but the defense decided not to show up and since Justin got hurt, our defense has sucked. Given up over 100 more yards passing and almost double the points (under 30ppg to under 16ppg). The defensive play calling was average at best but our defense didnt get the turnovers, stops and big plays that it got in 2011. Quite honestly, the way the defense played and that the offense looked dead after James fumble, I can honestly that the team didnt deserve to win because they didnt go out there with any passion or anything. Bowman made a stop and showed 6 fingers suggesting number six but instead of showing off on a stupid play, win the damn game first, then you can show off and gloat. 49ers were easily the better team on paper but in the actual game, nope. Say whatever you want about Ray Lewis but the one quality he has that we dont have is that he alone can motivate everyone else to play at a higher level than they're used to playing or even capable of playing. Willis needs to become that but quite honestly, I dont think he or anyone on the team ever will.

As for the off-season, we're in great shape. Not only will we have a good amount of cap room, but we're young on both sides of the ball. With the exception of DE Justin Smith, CB Carlos Rogers, C Jonathan Goodwin, K David Akers, P Andy Lee, RB Frank Gore and LS Brian Jennings, everyone will be 29 or younger when the 2013 season starts. Thats still pretty damn good considering a decent amount of players have been playing since 2006.

Also, we'll be getting back Manningham, Hunter, Williams, Dobbs and Fleming. Not having the first three hurt because was a waste. Only positive I give him is that he developed Crabtree, Kap and others. But like T.O., Moss' time is done.

FA wise, the only player I truly want is the same as last year, WR Mike Wallace. With the emergence of Crabtree and the awesome Vernon Davis, we need a deep threat. No one is better than Wallace. With Kaepernick's arm strength and accuracy, he would easily fit and could be the starter opposite Crabtree. Manningham and Williams are both under contract for one more season and I wouldnt extend either until I see how they've healed and how they bounce back. Add in the draft and neither one is a guarantee to make the roster in 2013.

Draft wise, im hoping for a dominant 3-4 DE to replace Justin Smith (who's also an UFA in a year from now), a pass rushing OLB and a cover corner with our first three draft picks. After that, backup at right and left tackle plus a backup at RG to replace Leonard Davis. Also, a bigger nasty starting center ala Jeremy Newberry to replace Goodwin who's the weakest part of our OL. Every OL is at least 6'5, 300+. Talk about monsters on the OL. Just need the center to become one.

As for who I would go, QB Alex Smith ($8.5m for 2013, $16m over the next two years), C Jonathan Goodwin ($3.7m for 2013), and CB Carlos Rogers ($5.5m for 2013, $19m from 2013-2015) are the main guys. Overall, for those three players alone, we would save $17.7m in cap room for 2013 alone. Add in whatever cap room we have now that would carried over into 2013 and the cap room that we'll have from letting several UFA's leave such as Moss, possibly Ginn, Leonard Davis, possibly Sopoaga/Grant/Gooden and we'll easily have over $20m in cap room for 2013. For 2014, we'll already have that $21m in cap room if we release Rogers and Smith this month which im hoping they do.

Tarell Brown is good and even though he had a bad game yesterday and bad week, I still like Culliver to eventually be a starter sooner rather than later. Granted, adding a shutdown CB would be awesome but there's none that are going to be available and the one one that might be via trade (Revis) isnt worth the first rounder and huge contract which quite honestly would defeat the purpose of letting other veterans go in order to clear cap space. For a one year rental of Revis, I honestly would have given up our first rounder especially since its 31 but since he's coming off that major injury, I dont think that he's worth the risk.

Either way, we're still in excellent shape and unrealistic shape when you compare us to the Ravens who are already $5m over the cap, will have to tag Flacco at $14m plus have UFA's like Reed, Kruger and Ellerbe. Plus, a few veterans like Boldin could be cap cuts. So, when you think about it, losing the Super Bowl definitely sucked but at least we have a lot of young talent, a true franchise QB in Kap and plenty of cap room and draft picks to get even better.

This team just needs better play calling at time, more maturity and leadership, and that killer instinct. Hopefully, in 2013 we'll have that.

I think Rogers is done. He had a bad season, didnt get the interceptions that he had last year (but in fairness, our defense as a whole didnt), got beat badly a lot this year including by bOLDin last night and quite honestly, he's not worth the $5.5m in salary for 2013. We have Brown and Culliver who I would start next season. He played bad but I like Culliver because he's physical which is exactly what we need at CB. Cox and Brock can return for depth while adding one or two more corners in the draft.

True but if there's a center available at 31 who fits the offense and is big and nasty like the rest of our OL, he would be gone. Plus, I want a young center to pair up with Kaepernick so he doesnt have to switch centers every few years. Want him to have the chemistry that a Manning/Saturday had in Indy.

Sopoaga is going to be 32 or so I think when the season starts plus we play more without him then we do with him. I mainly see a 2-4-5 formation majority of the time so to me, he can be let go. Plus, I want to see Jean Francois play NT and see how he does.

Wouldnt be opposed to Bowe but I think that he'll want more money than Wallace. Bowe is two years older and while he provides that red zone threat, I want more of a speed guy on the outside especially since unlike Smith, we actually have a QB who throw deep down the field with accuracy. Need a speed guy who's a playmaker and can take advantage of that.

Just in case you wanted to see how we crumbled when it mattered most again.

Oh and here is the delay of game play on 3rd down that looked like it would have worked if Kap SNAPPED THE BALL ON TIME.
