I know my opinion isn't agreed upon here but I'll continue to beat the drum. Yes the play calling was suspect, the Manning bonehead int hurt, Knowshow's injury sucked, and the Moore/Carter coverage disaster blew.


But for me the most blame is still directed toward Chump Bailey. The dude is beloved here and should be lock for first ballot HOF. In fact some have discussed him as a top 5 CB of all time. The guy is asked to deliver in one game, to actually step up and be a leader. What we get is an old, broken down bum who gets beat time and time again. He should have had a 3rd TD against him and caused a crucial PI flag in the 4th. On the field he was a total antithesis of Ray Lewis who actually stepped up and led their D.

^ You watch that play and you wonder what Champ was doing/thinking. It appears he was in position, wasn't really beat. I don't know that I've seen/heard an explanation for what the hell he was doing there. You almost get the impression that he was either hurt or quit on the play. Inexplicable.

One of the worst season in recent memory.
Every one(including manning) choked.
Refs are so biased.
One positive is that this nightmare season is going to end today.

Yep, him & Doom both. I mean the two of them are getting paid, what? -27 million?

You think you could get a big time play out of them for that. Big time players make big time plays in big time games.

They have the big time salaries, the other part not so much.

I just feel the broncos should have been in this game. That just seems the way it was supposed to be to me. Having the ravens there does seem right to me.

I'm still sulking. Not sure if I'm going to watch the SB. I'll probably Tivo it and skim through it later. I've got a wood working project I'll try & finish.

I haven't felt this bad since SBXXIV. That's a longggggggggg time.

Chris Harris has been our best corner all season. It's obvious Champ has been hurt or lost a major step as an athlete this season. Harris should have been in the pro bowl instead of Champ. He had a fantastic season.

I'm only watching for gambling purposes. My idiot friend put $50 on 49ers to score exactly 8 points. Does anyone have the research ability to see the last time a NFL team scored 8 points. I tried for a minute but had no luck.

Wow, what are the odds on that bet? You should be nice to him he could have some spending money. Of course as soon as the 49ers score more than 8 points you need to mercilessly abuse him for such a stupid bet.

Whoa, agreed, that has to be into the absurd odds range before I'd consider something like that. I haven't been following the thread so I hadn't seen the post.

I just looked it up and it's only 10/1 odds that not a single penalty will occur. What are the chances of that actually happening? I forget how terrible odds they actually give on these props so it may not actually be as high as we'd suspect. Putting $50 on it is just retarded.

I think it'd be way more likely the Ravens get completely shut out than that the 9ers score 8 and that's 40/1. That means I'd want at least 60-80/1 before I'd even consider it comparable. I'm really curious what those odds must be.

Looks like he is playing WR and thought he was a Ratbird

Well, he had outside, almost like he was expecting someone to cover inside. Oh, look who is running trying to catch up after the play is over.

^That SB was before my time. I had forgotten about that, though. The closest comparable moment for me would be Pittsburg beating Denver in the AFCCG so I guess I can understand.

I used to detest SF. I hated John Brodie, I was a big fan of the LA Rams who played SF twice a year and loved those games. Then SB XXIV didn't help the love. But I am rooting for them this year. I love their defense, Patrick Willis in particular. Ray Lewis doesn't deserve to go out with a win.

I'll be rooting for the ratbirds. I can't stand the Niners and their pretentious fans. Niner fans are like patriot fans in that many of them think football was invented with Bill Walsh (the pats fans think football was invented with belichik and brady).

I'd rather the ratbirds win a SB than give the niners fans more fuel for their franchise being the greatest franchise to ever grace the gridiron. No thanks.

Next generation of the Rooney rule. Because the first one worked so well. And CBS is annoying the **** out of me.
