Losing Haloti Ngata for the entire second half was more of a 'momentum shift' than the lights going out.

Before the blackout Ravens was getting ready to slit SF throat. After they came out slow and not playing at the same level. A half hour timeout can do that someone laugh.gif.

SF was in crisis mode before the blackout, they had 30 minutes to take them sensu beans or whatever the hell hey did and get their mind right.

Ravens were rolling up until the blackout. There was a shift in momentum following. If you're on a hot streak before the half, you can mentally prepare for the 3rd quarter because halftime is expected. A blackout, which is obviously unexpected (to me) seems like a much harder task to stay focused for. Especially if you don't know when the game would start back up again. I heard that the Ravens offense went something like 85 minutes before touching the ball. That's a LONG time. I think it's a lot easier for the losing team to regroup and refocus going forward. Just my take on things and like I said before...I do think there was a shift in momentum. Ravens looked flat as hell and the 49ers capitalized. Who knows what would have happened if the power stayed on?

Power stayed on that 9ers team would've gotten straight embarrassed like they did the whole 1st half.

I know you want to contribute the 9ers storming back being a good team (which they are) but don't dismiss the obvious.

Mental plays as much as part as physical in sports.

The 9ers could literally so nothing against the ravens.

Dude who said momentum is a cliche is right. Its just the natural ebb and flow of the game. No one can definiively say that the 9ers wouldn't have made a comeback w/o the blackout happening. Look at all the games when a team is down big and comes back to make it at least close and sometimes win. Teams are alot closer in talent than the standings reflect.

blackouts are not part of the natural ebbs and flows of the game. I MIGHT give credence to your argument if it had something do to with the Ravens playing well before the half and the 49ers starting the 3rd making adjustments. However, for something unexpected like a blackout...I don't really see how anyone can argue that there wasn't a shift in momentum based off of the delay.

This guy skip cryyyyying about every single called basically saying the game was rigged

i didn't see anything like that at all.

it's embarrassing

Based on my limited experience playing sports -- a long break can definitely kill momentum. Whether that was the case yesterday, and whether the outcome would've been much different if there was no blackout, we don't know.

Had they put him in it would've been WAY worse.

Bill Cowher was calling for Smith after the blackout.

Harbaugh's playcalling on the 5 mean.gif No read option??? ESPECIALLY w/ Ngata out of the game? The hell....


Baltimore was dictating their read option by blitzing, they couldn't run it. That's why most of Kap's runs were straight QB runs.

Baltimore was going all out at him, forcing him to beat them with a perfect throw, not giving him the "option" to pick and choose what he wanted. That's why the 9ers tried the roll outs to get away from the blitzes.

the 9ers have run that same roll out with no success all year.

and u can definitely run the ball at blitzes. especially traps and powers. they had just ran the counter at the 5 yard line earlier in the game for Gore's TUB.

Harbaugh and Roman Blew it big time.

Neither are 45 minute halftimes. We didn't see the Ravens offense at all, who knows if they were flat.

Like I said, we could woulda, coulda, shoulda... Ravens won, momentum be damned.

But you're preparing for a 45 minute halftime during the course of SB prep. You're not preparing for a 34 minute blackout.

There were 5 plays before the blackout: the jacoby kick return, sf's return and three offensive plays ( had to repeat 1st bc baltimore penalty). How is that enough to see what adjustments they did/didn't make?

Your right, idk why we aren't even discussing.

Regardless of how or why, the 9ers lost.
post #49 of 129
QOTW was the guy who said the Ravens should just let SF score at the end there. Probably not the best coaching strategy laugh.gif

C'mon, stop acting like you've never watched sports before man.

How did the blackout not help the 49ers? In a basketball game, when one team is on a run and the other team is on the verge of getting blown out, what does the coach do? He takes a timeout. The blackout was basically a long *** timeout that allowed the 49ers to regroup and it mentally/emotionally slowed down the roll the Ravens were on. It quieted the crowd too, which seemed like it was mainly Ravens fans.

A 35-minute blackout is not natural. Think about how you'd react if every time your team took a 3-score lead in a game, the other team was given a 35-min timeout to regroup laugh.gif

Yeah aight laugh.gifmean.gif

Every year we see teams ride momentum. Whether it's to win a game or win The Super Bowl.


Great game last night. Ravens came out hit 'em in the mouth then the 9ers got a 35 minute timeout like I said in the game thread last night. It stopped momentum and seemed like Kaep just said "Ima play my game" and he played with a nothing to lose attitude. But the Ravens showed some heart holding on to that lead.


I like how the refs didn't make any weak calls, they let the players decide the game.


I've been a supporter of Flacco and I know all off-season the elite question is gonna be asked. To me elite is Peyton, Brees, Rodgers and Brady. Then you got the class with Eli and Big Ben. I think Flacco is right underneath those dudes. Dude will be Diddy boppin to Ozzie Newsome's office.

9ers=Fraud Status.

Ray Lewis got all the attention leading up to the game and Manti Teo'd his way through the entire superbowl.

Jim harbaugh is a lame.

Culliver got raped all game.

Flacco stole that MVP. Still not elite.

MMG still hasn't gotten over Chester hurting his feelings

People are looking to much into this blackout. The truth is Ngata being out and the Rice fumble had more to do with momentum than that.

Skip's probably still mad that he said the Ravens would go on an 9 game losing streak to end the season, and Stephen A put him on blast by replaying that clip after the Ravens' won the AFCCG. laugh.gif
