JFC are we really arguing about who lost the game and why or how they did it? Including graphs and charts?

Talk about sucking the fun out of every damn thing.
To be fair, I just love spreadsheets, more than football in fact. Spent the whole game doing some reports for work.
 
It was well disguised. Warner said so when I was listening on the radio instead of to stupid ass Romo, and I've seen other ex-players echo that sentiment today. If you didn't know where it was coming from, not much you could do about it.
Well disguised is fine but anticipating what was coming knowing Spag’s history was Job1 by the coaching staff and The Rat whiffed.
 
I'm going to go out on a limb here. I'm guessing it wasn't Marcus' idea.

It may have been the league's idea to have something to honor the host team.

Or they just let Mark choose some way to do that.

Raiders have 3 SB wins so it makes sense to pick the 3 MVP. Simple.

No need to add more to it. It is what it is.
 
Lost in all this silliness is SF having one of the most prolific passing offenses in the league this year. They didn’t get away from what they do, they ran into a team that, on balance, was better.



I'm still amazed they shut all three of those receivers down, and it didn't happen because Perdy was discombobulated and couldn't get back on track like when he's fallen apart in the past. They just couldn't get anything going in the air. Chefs are good at that, but I thought they might hit one or two big ones. I think I read that they gave up only four explosive plays all post season.

SF Pass Run balance by game. Games where they exceeded last night's pass ratio in non-black.

Run/Pass ratio will usually lean pass in a loss and vice versa. My point is that people are acting like throwing the ball was a huge weakness for them. Running the ball was getting hyped because KC was supposedly not good at stopping it. Except for yesterday.

I just wanted to make another table.

But that's kind of the point, they were winning most of that game - for them to pass as much as they did in a game they didn't need to make massive comebacks in is curious.

I wonder how much of their passing game benefited from their running game and advantageous situations, but it in no way shape or form was anything worse than good.

KC was great at holding it in check and preventing big plays, but the 49ers were generally getting 4 yards or more. In the first 3 quarters there were 7 runs of 4 or more yards. 4 of 3 or less, one of which was 0 and one of which was negative.

After Q1 Son of Ed's YPC was 4.29. After Q2 it was 4.1 with it being 3.67 for Q2 itself. Q3 was bad at 2.5, but he only had 2 touches and his overall YPC was still 3.83.

He's not a high volume guy in the least, but surely he could have been given the ball a couple more times in the 3rd? Two more times would have put him and equal touches to their other two playoff games (not including OT because one would surmise there'd be no OT).

They didn't even know the new playoff overtime rules, so...
