Last week, the Giants forced three Seahawks turnovers but they weren’t able to turn them into enough points to hang with the Seahawks come the second half.

49ers show they counterpunch, hold 21-10 lead

The Saints weren’t going to be held off the scoreboard on Sunday, so when New Orleans cut San Francisco’s lead to 14-10 early in the second quarter, it was imperative the 49ers struck back.

Week 10 “Three and Out”

Yeah, the “Three and Out” feature has been posted a little later than usual this week.  Thank you for noticing.  I wanted to see if you’d notice. Actually, there was no specific reason for posting it now other than I ran out of time to finish the thing before the weekly trip to NBC for…

Lack of cameras on the goal line limits refs’ replay rulings

One of the most fundamental questions in football — whether the ball crossed the goal line — is often the subject of instant replay review.

Blandino says there’s no way to know if Kaepernick scored

Which came first, the ball crossing the goal line or Colin Kaepernick dropping the ball? That’s the question that decided Sunday’s Rams-49ers game, and it’s a question we’ll never know whether or not the referee answered correctly.

Kaepernick: I know I scored a touchdown, even if ref didn’t see it

Colin Kaepernick says his last play in the 49ers’ loss to the Rams on Sunday should have been ruled a touchdown, not a fumble.

Boger cites lack of indisputable evidence on two key calls in 49ers game

A couple of critical calls had plenty to do with San Francisco’s 13-10 loss to the Rams on Sunday.  One came at the end of the half, one came at the end of the game.  Both rulings weren’t overturned due to a lack of indisputable visual evidence. Via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, referee Jerome Boger…
