Listen here, we were f-o-u-r plays away from getting the ball inside the end zone and the Ravens manhandled our chances away short of molestation. If I was making the playcalls, I would call a play for a Frank Gore run because he was bloodthirsty for a Super Bowl victory. He was not about to get his number called only to say, "I was stopped at the one and 3 inches."
It was not Greg Roman's fault the 3 pass plays failed, either. Kap makes the play, Roman is the evil genius. Kap doesn't and the 49ers lose and fans call for his firing. I can't make sense of the 3 pass plays that sealed the fate of the 49ers but I also cannot make sense of the non-call on holding and the ultimate molestation, the pass interference, either.
The reason the three consecutive pass plays were called are the fact the 49ers really believe in Kap's elite passing. That is how much they believe in him and that will definitely extend into 2013 and beyond.
If the 49ers keep their roster intact and re-sign Moss and give him a bigger role in 2013 utilizing jump ball catches and add a drafted player who can become another Patrick Willis (on the offensive or defensive side) the 49ers have a real legitimate chance to get back into the Super Bowl for a chance at redemption. And that goes with saying they still can do it without Moss or Alex Smith.
What drives me insane is the fact older brother John Harbaugh now has defeated younger brother Jim's harbaugh TWICE most recently in the most important game of Jim's coaching career; that is what I feared the most when I found out it would be a Harbowl for real.
The most surreal moment came when I saw my friend John Maucere sing with Alicia Keys the national anthem in sign language; and it became more supernaturally surreal when Maucere tweeted a link to the recent TMZ article which pointed out that he looked like the "Little Munster" character from the Addams Family TV show, who was a favorite childhood character of mine.
So I guess, the only people I love are the San Francisco 49ers and Little Munster.
And I hate the Ravens and will do the hating for poor lil' bro Jim Harbaugh.
