Michael Crabtree and Jim Harbaugh weren’t too happy with the officiating last night.
With about 1:50 left in the fourth quarter, the 49ers had a chance to take the lead. Crabtree ran a route to the corner of the end zone and Colin Kaepernick tossed the ball up to his receiver. The ball landed on the grass and the 49ers turned the ball over on downs.
Both Michael Crabtree and Jim Harbaugh say that the refs missed a crucial holding call on Jimmy Smith during the game.
“It was a missed call … [The referee] missed two or three in the game but that was it right there, the Super Bowl was right there … I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to think about it. I don’t know, man. What do you think? I thought it was holding.”
Harbaugh also said that there should have been a holding call on the play.
“There was no question in my mind there was a pass interference, and then a hold on the last play.”
Here’s a video of the play.
Do you think there should have been a flag?
The 49ers turned the ball over on downs after the play and the Ravens were able to hold on to win Super Bowl XLVII.
