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.
nope, watch it again and keep in mind the following facts:
-line of scrimmage was just outside the 5 yard line, so the endzone is beyond the 5 yard cushion
-at no point does the defender look back for the ball, the receiver on the other hand is looking back for the ball
This is the best HD video I found of it...scroll down and jump to about 2:30 in the vid:
the refs apparently don't know what holding is, as you can clearly see on the subsequent play:
Thats me on the street with a violin under my chin, playing with a grin, singing gibberish.
