The non-call on 4th down

Ball was uncatchable.

It was only a foot past his outstretched arms. He could have easily caught it without the hold. The ball barely landed out of bounds, so he definitely could have got his feet in bounds.

Also, catchability doesn't matter all that much on a holding call.

Imagine if somebody had held Dwight Clark.....

I say no. The calls were consistent throughout the game. There were numerous plays where I could see a P.I. called but for the most part the refs let them play.

The play IMO was called right. The WR initiated the contact and the pass was uncatchable. Even if he catches the ball I don't believe he would have caught it in bounds.

Finally if those that want to scream the Niners got ripped off maybe they should go look at the late hit on Flacco out of bounds. The refs call that hit. Game over and the Niners never touch the ball again.

It was mutual mugging between the two players.

Easily close enough to be deemed catchable. Should have been, at the very least, offsetting penalties and a repeat of down.

49ers fans bet not be griping about that play. First of all, they were getting beatdown before the lights went out, giving them a chance to regroup. Secondly, I remember Bowman interfering with Roddy White at the end of the NFC championship game. That interference was much more blatant than last night's play. So anyone complaining about last night, needs to go sit down!

Well really it wasn't that great of a pass. Sure It could've been caught, way out of bounds though..

Both those guys were grabbing. You don't end a superbowl by essentially giving one team a touchdown and possibly the win by a penalty. They had 4 downs to punch it in, wtf do you guys want.

San Francisco dug an early hole, and if not for that ridiculous power outage maybe would've been blown out.

Chris Carter said on Mike & Mike this morning that is was a good no call. Said that Crabtree didn't do anything to help himself and that by trying to run through the defender put himself in the position to not get the call. Said its receiver basics that if you dont get your hips outside of the defender that you cant get a ref to call holding in that situation. He said that it was a lazy route and Crabtree didn't deserve to get the holding call.

I'm guessing a HoF receiver probably has a pretty good take on what happened there.

I thought when I saw it that it was not DPI because it was not catchable... it was, in my opinion, defensive holding however, because he grabbed Crabtree's jersey.

Maybe your DNA is more evolved so I saw defensive HOLDING. No PI.

I was indifferent either way but was hoping Ray Ray would convert to Islam by end of the game. I just like to see a fair game. The Seahawks vs Pitt had the worst calls and non calls against the Seahawks and I was pissed at them for eliminating us in the Playoffs.

if crabtree would have just taken a dive when the DB got his hands on him the refs probably would have tossed the flag

Being down 22 at the half (or whatever) is the reason the 9ers lost the game.
