The 49ers also turned it over twice while Baltimore only turned it over once, SF was only 22% on 3rd down while Baltimore was 55%, SF was 33% inside the 20 while Baltimore was 50%, SF had 150% more penalties, and SF gave up that ludicrous return touchdown. You're cherry-picking a stat.

i get your premise mister love. the rules in the nfl favor a passing game. running the football will still be important but you dont have to be #1 rushing to be successful. and you definitely dont need 2 first round picks to run the ball!

i think honestly we need to do like the giants and falcons and get our young qb some more weapons outside. we cant keep trying to hide our qbs behind a strong run game.

Ravens were ranked a modest 11th while the Niners ranked 4th in the league in 2012
Last year the Giants ranked 32nd in the rushing yards
The year before the Packers ranked 24th

...keep telling me you need to dominate on the ground to win the game guys


Obviously dominating in the ground game makes you lose. Now I understand thabks

I don't think anyone believes you absolutely have to dominate on the ground to win, but there is no doubt it helps. The forty niners made a few more mistakes (turnovers, key penalties) than the Ravens did, and in the end, that is what cost them the game.

SF lost this game because of bonehead mistakes and turnovers in the first half.....not because they have a good running game.

wait there are still people who believe we should devote resources and effort into crafting a running attack? But haven't they seen an NFL game at all the past 5 years?

i agree you dont need a super running game but a solid one. running backs not that valued now because it has turned to a passing game. look for rbs who can catch the ball out of the back filed too.

defense still wins championships.

Out of the 12 teams in the playoffs, 8 of them had top 16 rushing attacks. 4 of the top 5 rushing teams during the regular season made it to the playoffs. Baltimore was 11th in rushing during the season and was 5th in yds per game during the playoffs. Just because they didn't run it more than the 9ners in the Super Bowl doesn't mean they were slouches.

We don't need anymore overpaid running backs...correct. But to say it isn't vital for success is thinking one dimensionally I'm glad some of you don't have Gettleman's ear.

9ers have a strong run D, but had some really pooty play from their DBs. You take what the defense gives you. If their D was the opposite, then I'm sure the Ravens gameplan and stats would have reflected that as well.

You have to be able to do both, and take advantage of the weakness of the D. Being one dimensional either way won't get you very far.
