Sometimes you just have to take your L and keep it moving. At the end of the day in a one and done situation the better team is the one who has the most points when the clock strike zero.
The 49ers have been making excuses since the game has been over.
“I just feel like we [were] the better team. They got away with one today. We showed we were the better team. It was just a couple plays here, a couple plays there.”
“I think we’re the better team,” Gore said. “[I’m] just happy the way we kept fighting. Any other team probably would’ve just laid down, and we let people know what type of guys we’ve got in the locker room, type of warriors we are. It just didn’t happen for us today.”
I understand what Gore is trying to say, but he didn’t articulate it well. The 49ers had a lot of self inflected wounds, but what happens when you have a wounded opponent?
You go in for the kill and that is why Ravens are dancing with the Lombardi Trophy right now.
