Typically I'd agree with you, but not in this case. If we kept pushing the issue, there is no way the refs could've kept calling the game the way they were. When we were in their face , even with the penalties, the game was close. When we backed off the team lost their edge.
I think it was a catch 22. No one watching the game would have said those Refs were fair. Not even the announcers did which was a big shock to me. I think if we kept pushing we would have just got hammered some more.
I blame the refs still... defense played dominate, physical football for most of the first half.......and were getting flagged all up and down the field because the refs were only letting one team play. This second half, they're just out of it, they know if they get physical, it's just going to get another flag. So, either the refs help the 49ers up and down the field, or the defense just plays soft and the 49ers go down the field themselves.. either way, the 49ers are going to go down the field.
Refs took away the dominate, physical mindset of the defense.
and thats what the NFL wanted. Lets not kid ourselfs
They have given up 7 points. The rest was off of BS calls by the Refs. Nothing you can do about that and the fact our offense cant even score 20 points is pathetic. Just shows how good our defense is and how bad Shula is.
