Out of the Blue

Happy Groundhog Day! No, wait. that's not right... Okay, congratulations to the Ravens (except Ray Lewis) and their fans for winning the Super Bowl. It turned out to be an exciting game, though not as exciting as it would have been had the 49ers completed that comeback, especially with the conspiracy theories that would have provoked based on the wacky power outage. Oh yeah, and that last play was holding, if not pass interference. As Steve Mariucci would say, "bummer."

Okay, on to next season: The Giants pick 19th in the draft, which kicks off in late April. Kansas City Chiefs, you are officially on the clock.

Was an exciting game to watch - not happy about the outcome, and I think the refs really wanted Ravens to win - although there were some bad calls/no calls on the other side too. The most glaring was that hold during the safety. Wow refs.....had the niners receiver "fell" on that last play when the guys grabbed the OUTSIDE of his jersey with WHITE GLOVES with the ref 10 feet away, it would have been called....pretty bad no call...

there's nothing that could've been done about that. the refs most certainly saw it, but they never blow a play dead when a penalty is called after the ball is snapped. the result would've been a safety anyway - any offensive penalty committed in their own endzone is a safety. so the result would've been the same even if they did flag it. the coaches almost certainly told them to hold like their lives depended on it.

really it's just an obscure little loophole the ravens were able to exploit. the egregious holding probably let the kicker run an extra couple of seconds off, which probably means the 9ers at least get a hail mary out of it, and with kaepernick's arm you never know what happens.
