So before the 109-yard runback, I was gonna say this game isn’t over; Flacco got away with a couple of throws near the end of the first half that should have gotten picked, and Kaepernick is really explosive. The good news: that happened so quickly, that there’s the whole first half left. And this power outage is giving the Niners time to regroup after a big-time “oh sh-t” moment.
And the announcers are talking about going to Alex Smith…talk about ironic.
I can’t take credit for this idea, but someone on my gf’s Facebook news feed just joked that Sean Payton killed the power as a big ‘f–k you’ to Goodell. And ya know, I wouldn’t be surprised if Saints fans were REEEALLY happy to see Goodell’s big day spoiled…
One last thing: announcers are already talking that ‘milk the clock’ ish. Now, I understand the value of killing the clock, but I watched the Giants resort so prematurely conservative play calling this season and give away games they should have had in the bag. I’m not saying the Ravens should be loopy with the football–especially given my opinion that Flacco’s gotten away with a few squirrelly throws so far–but taking your foot off the gas with a full half to go is not, in my opinion, the move.
Ah, here we go. Game on.
