In what turned out to be just the first of two special-teams blunders that were sucker punches to the Harbaugh family, Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard field-goal attempt that would have sent the AF.C. championship game to overtime. Too bad – this was an extremely well-fought contest that pitted the league’s most fascinating offense against its most fascinating defense.
Later Sunday night, 49ers receiver/returner Kyle Williams also joined that dark special-teams chapter. Williams had a chance to return punts only because Ted Ginn Jr. was out with a knee injury. Football is far too complex to say that any outcome is decided by two plays, but it’s easy to imagine the 49ers winning without Williams’s fumbles, which set up Mario Manningham’s fourth-quarter touchdown catch and Lawrence Tynes’s overtime field goal.
I’m sorry if you’re a big Harbaugh Bros. fan, but I’m not. I think the guys are total a$$holes, and I mean that. I’m so sick and tired of hearing about how competitive they are… I guess in today’s world you can be a total d$ckhead, but just say you’re competitive and that should be OK. I couldn’t be happier that both of these guys lost. This comes close to losing my virginity.
