If not for Nick Bosa early the game would likely have been 21-0 rather than 10-0.
Niners depleted at CB and playing Rodgers and Adam’s. No bueno.
I knew they lost the game the instant Juice scored and there were 37 seconds left. They never should have even had the chance to take the lead.
Refs were rough early in with PIs against SF, but calls were just as bad against the Packers late so that’s no excuse. Just a rough, rough night. I don’t hate Jimmy, but man….that backward spike was one of the most boneheaded thing I’ve seen in a long time.
I legitimately don't understand why he didn't think to just go down before the goal line. More players need to be smarter about doing that. I get the "you're not guaranteed to score" crowd, but in that match up, I'll take the Niners with 1st and goal from the 2 100/100 times to score a TD.
Agreed on the refs early on. The PI calls were stupid. The roughing call and missed hit on Adams were equally bad. Always nice when those actually even out.
I totally get the argument and honestly I don't know where I'd fall on it.
If he'd gone down and then like the next play is an INT (like say overtime last Monday Night), then you are thinking they got way to cute with it and outsmarted themselves.
IE, I can see it either way.
I just knew tho that they had lost already. I saw them cheering on the field, my mother texted me all happy....I just stared at the screen. No joy.
All I could see was "37". I knew it.
I don't know where I stand on the Adams hit. There is no question is LOOKED bad, but if you rewatch it Ward led with his shoulder and Adams after the play said it wasn't a concussion. he couldn't breathe because he was hit so hard in the chest. I'm not saying I'm sure it was a clean hit. I don't know that either...I'm just not so sure it was egregious as most think.
Ward was trying to knock the ball loose. I don't think he knew that Adams had already dropped it.
Steve young says this sometimes. We are at the point now where refs just penalize big hits. Not hitting with helmet, not late...just big hits.
The PI on Aiyuk and the roughing the passer tho...yeah...those were pretty bad.
