what did you learn from superbowl 47?

Jerome Boger is a shitty head ref, even by replacement ref standards

We did not really learn this though, it has been known for some time.

I agree with you Blue....that the read option should remain a part of our offense.

A QB who can beat you with him arm and legs is a valuable weapon....keeps the defense guessing.

It is another dimension that a team has to prepare for and be ready for, no matter how many times a game you run it.

We have great RB's....we have good WR's (I do want one more weapon at WR...whether from draft or FA)...we have a QB with a cannon for an arm and who can rip off 40 yard runs.

Mix in the Power Run Game....Read Option....Pistol....Play Action...etc and this offense could be very dangerous.

Every time I hear words like that I get excited then I think of Rivera I get depressed. I think of the time when he took a knee with 47 second on the clock and the time he did not attempt a 50 yard field goal and instead attempt a hail mary. Playoff games are normally close, bad or scared coaching are normally the detriment to a team. The broncos can tell you all about it. Damn! Seems like the panthers have a track record in hiring those types of coaches. Oh well! At least Cam got swag.

It was a demonstration, once again, that you can no longer hope to win in this league with just a dominant defense. Even great defenses are routinely getting 30 points put up against them.

We need to do all we can to make our offense as potent as possible, and rely on Rivera's and McDermott's defensive schemes to keep us at least middle of the pack.

Spot on.

Agree, though the way the league has set up the rules it's extremely difficult to have the kind of dominant defense that teams used to be able to build.

Honestly, I think the they've made it harder to judge the quality of quarterbacks. Under the current setup, even a quarterback who's not what you'd consider great (Ryan, for example) can put up big points and look better than they really are.

The Niners offense was extremely "stoppable" in the first half. They only got effective after the Baltimore defense started showing it's age.

But heck, even then the Ravens still held them out of the end zone on four plays with five yards to go. "Unstoppable" offenses don't get shut out five yards from paydirt.

Our offense is by no means "unstoppable", but you put Cam in that situation and its a guaranteed touchdown. 4 plays... 5 yards - right up the gut with our tank of a quarterback.

You know that is one big question I'd have for Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman today.

Given that the Ravens were consistently blowing contain on the left side, why wouldn't you run Kaepernick on a delay to that side?

Granted, the Ravens might have been ready for that, but I gotta think it was worth a shot.

I learned to not cut Chris Gamble, cause the pass defense for 49ers are one of the reasons they lost

I learned that variety is a good thing. A little read option here and there, power run game to soften the D, deep bombs from time to time, a sound special teams with a dash of a fake FG. They may not all work at the time but it keeps the other side guessing.

Stubbornness will get you no where.

That the NFL cutting the lights help the 49ers not get blown out in the 3rd QT.
