That last call was the right call in my opinion, there was contact on both ends, and it would have been a "soft" call to to make at such a critical juncture in the game. If you want to talk about the refs letting the players decide on the field, then that was the right move.
I think there would have been a shit storm of controversy surrounding the blackout had the Niners completed the comeback. That 45 minute time-out was a HUGE game changer IMO... not to take anything away from the Niners, but they were able to reorganize, clear their minds and got a huge lift from that, meanwhile the Ravens were probably thinking about where they were going to celebrate after the game.
