    I don't think the Patriots deserved this one, but I was pretty livid to see 3 straight holding calls against the Patriots on the return game, and then a 65 yard kickoff return with multiple holds, none of them called against the 49ers.

    The Official Patriots vs 49'ers POST game thread

    Please post your comments, knee jerk reactions ( although some just couldn't wait) and insightful observations regarding tonight's loss.

    The only comment I have is that I was proud that the team came back and tied it, instead of quitting when things were looking out of control.

    My one thought is turnovers.

    The totally dominated early, to the Pats credit they hung in a fought back.

    21 ends up being the unlucky number again.
    21 straight wins(include playoffs)
    21 straight regular season wins
    21 straight 2nd half of the season wins
    Even tho they lost they showed a ton of heart. They can win in denver.

    Special Teams tonight

    Beyond atrocious. Holding on every punt return, bad tackling on return coverage all night. Lots of reasons for this loss, but this unit is the only one where you can really scratch your head and wonder how the play could be that bad.

    Counting penalties it seemed like their punts all netted 80 yards.

    49ers are an awesome tram. Congrats to them.

    I posted this in OTG's thread and I'll leave it here too...

    Going zone heavy in the first half combined with absolutely back breaking turnovers by the offense lost us this one. Eliminate one of those factors, and this is a Patriots win.

    pats will be fine. erase those dumb turnovers and the st penalties and we most likely win that game. not worried at all. get gronk back, get healthy for playoffs, and smash heads.

    Man I'm not really sure how I feel about this game. Horrible First half but they fought tooth and nail to come back in the second which was great to see. So close and so far. Glad they didn't give up when they were in a deep hole. Props to SanFran they are a really great team. Seeing them tonight I'd probably put them at #1 in the league.

    Proud of their effort.

    Going to be a tough road if they end up with the 3 seed, but if anybody can do it, it's this Patriots team.

    Tom Terrific is amazing. That was one of his most impressive performances ever.
    We lost the #2 seed (for now) but we have two gimmie games to close the season. We just need to stay healthy.

    After tonight, after that second half, if we see San Fran again this year and we have Gronk, we win that game. Reminds me of us beating the Giants in the regular season in 2007 and then seeing them again better prepared.

    I don't fear the 49'ers after tonight.

    Great heart. I'm proud of our guys.

    But. Two picks. Two Fumbles lost. Too much. ST giving up a return to our 35 after Brady brought them back didn't help either. In fact, ST penalties also hurt us all night.

    Now we need some help from Cleveland or Kansas City against Denver, but we can't control that, so let's just focus on winning out. 12--4 after digging a 3--3 hole would still be better than I expected back in October. Third seed at the worst.

    I don't want to hear any whining about how "doomed" we are without the Bye.

    Sure, the Bye would have been great for all of the reasons that have been rehearsed ad nauseam in other threads, but we're gonna have to get to New Orleans the hard way. If you don't think we can, please let me know so I can put you on ignore.

    It sucks they lost, but there were a few encouraging things from this game.

    - they almost came back from a game where near every bounce went against them

    - they hung 34 points on the best defense in the league, 31 of those in the second half

    - they didn't give up after being down 28 to the best defense in the league

    Re: The Official Patriots vs 49'ers POST game thread

    Against the best defense in the league and one of the top 3 teams in the league we:

    - Were missing our top offensive threat not named Brady
    - Lost one of our top 2 corners for half of the game
    - Missed out on a number of fumble recovery opportunities
    - Had every fluke play go the other team's way
    - Were down by 31 points

    And we tied the game. The special teams and defensive failure that lead to the next score absolutely took the wind out of our sails as did the repeated flags on special teams that kept setting us back 5 years.

    But I look at a game like this and say this is a game we can build on in a lot of ways positively. A win would have been better. Playing mistake free football and dominating them would have been better. But I look at this loss and I see a lot of things that show how much heart this team had.

    Look at how other teams laid down when things started going against them. A lot of things just didn't go our way, that 14 points after the half were killer and off of turnovers. But we kept fighting.

    We fix the mistakes, we get and stay healthy and we'll see this team again in the SB and it won't be the same game.

    As a 49ers fan, I felt pretty confident going into the second half, but even up by 28 points, I knew that Brady was good enough to come back and win, especially with key 49ers defensive players leaving the game.

    This game pretty much went how I expected it to. The Patriots have a powerhouse offense, a weak defense, and the game ended up being decided by one score. I didn't expect the 49ers to run up so many unanswered points so quickly, or for the Patriots to come back just as quickly, but at the end of the game, it was pretty much what I expected, although maybe with twice the points on the board.

    Hopefully everyone who got hurt today will be healthy by playoff times and if these two teams keep playing like they are now, there will probably be a rematch of this game in New Orleans.

    My thought is that the league needs to look at the niners DT's holding the opposing OG everytime they run a twist...That seemed to be the majority of the time that they would get pressure in Brady's face is because they would hook/hold our guards so they couldn't move to block them...Now I am a referee, albeit high school, but still they can't allow this to keep happening or otherwise there is no stopping them....Plus the fact that it is blatantly obvious when they do it.....

    Ok now that rant is over....I thought the pats looked in a fog the first half...The second half Brady was putting receivers in motion and reading the niners defense allowing him to dissect them.....We were not ready and turned the damn ball over way to much....We usually play better than other teams in the weather but it bit us in the ass tonight as the ball looked like a hot potato....Give us a healthy team WITH GRONK and I would love our chances in a rematch in the superdome.....

    And hopefully Dennard and Spikes are ok as we don't need people missing a ton of time.....

    1. Don't hate on Arrington too much. He's a pretty good slot CB who was pressed into duty as the #2. In a game where plenty of starters didn't perform as well as they should have, there are better hate targets than a guy who's great at what he does and not great at what he had to do.

    2. The Pats have a great chance here to rest a few players, most notably Spikes, but also Gronk and probably Dennard. With nothing to play for except the difference between the #3 and #4 seeds (assuming Denver wins both of their games and the Texans win one), the Pats have two full weeks to rest players that need rest.

    3. Lost in the 4th down to Woodhead blame is that McDaniels obviously did something right at halftime.

    4. If Brandon Lloyd is actually "out" and not just teasing us, then this offense is going to have two more legit weapons than it had for most of the season once Gronk gets back.

    5. Talib gave up one big conversion, but he had a really good game.

    Probably will have more. Definitely need to watch this second half again.

    I am proud on how they fought back, but this loss hurt. Losing the bye and probably needing to win at Houston and Denver will be a tough chore, but if we get Gronk back we can do it.

    3 loses to the NFC West. Bet nobody saw that coming looking at our schedule before the season.
