    Re: NFL Playoffs

    Two really really good games today.

    Now we get the 07 rematch and two weeks of ESPN talking about that game.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    Not that it matters, but just for my own edification, does anyone know what would happen at the end of the first overtime period in a playoff game (assuming no team had scored)? Specifically, would the team that received at the beginning of overtime have to kick off (like it was the end of a half) or would they just switch sides and keep playing (like it was the end of the 1st or 3rd quarter)? Everything I found in 1 minute or so of googling just talked about the new scoring rules.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    Harbaugh should have not had Williams back out there after the thin hit his knee. If that was his first mistake, then you can't bench a guy for that. But the dude dove for a a punt earlier in the game. It was really dumb and something you just never see. He was incredibly lucky not to have lost that one to the Giants.

    Then he was very indecisive on that one that he touched that allowed the Giants to get a TD a few plays later.

    At that point it should have been clear he was no up for that job in this game. I even said it after that play. At that moment, I thought Harbaugh needed to find someone else to field the punt. Williams was rattled.

    Maybe Harbaugh can spend his offseason classing up his post game handshake. There's room for improvement.

    IIRC, its like the end of the 1st or 3rd qiarters. Swap ends and keep going. I remember that happening in the Chiefs Dolphins '71 playoff game that went 6 quarters.

    Great games -- helped distract me from the anger of my Buccaneers hiring Chip Kelly to be their next 3-year failure at head coach.

    Sorry, Bart Scott called them that, think of it as a term of endearment in a love/hate relationship. Of course, it's all love today.

    Williams was back there because Ginn was out. Williams was already the #2 returner, how deep do teams go in that regard?

    After watching the second half unfold it was quite evidend that neither team's offense was going to create a score on their own. It was going to take a TO or ST play. In the end it was a ST TO that sealed the game.

    I think sometimes we blame the offensive player for the fumble when it was just a great defensive play, or shear luck at times. I don't think Williams was doing anything wrong, just got hit in the wrong place at the wrong time. Heck if he doesn't fumble he may have another 10-15 yards and puts the niners in very good field position.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    The kid had only returned 5 all year with Ginn being the primary returner. However I got to put a lot of the blame on SF not coaching the kid up in that role. I think they needed to be specific about what punts to return and when to get the heck out of the way. I feel bad for the kid because his two gaffes lost them the game.

    How do you only catch one pass all day Michael Crabtree? His performance was awful!

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    I get that it was Ginn's role and he was a backup. My point is that he looked like he was in over his head. I mean, the kid dove for a punt. Who does that? Then he looks totally indecisive and made a HUGE mistake. He's a young guy on a big stage. You don't recover from that in a quarter. They could have had someone else go back to field the punt with the clear directive to either fair catch the ball or let it bounce. Williams was frazzled and should not have been put in a position to lose the game for them, which he did. I thought that before the punt was even made.
