Those are the reasons the niners lost.
This is all true, but you still have to make that call. It was so blatant. It was the NFL equivalent of a take down at the blue line in OT to stop a breakaway. It has to be called. They also looked like they got away with pass interference on the play before. I thought overall the refs did a good job of letting a lot go, and not interfering too much. However, there you just call offsetting penalties and replay the down.
