The 49ers mounted a furious comeback in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday night, but they fell just short in losing to the Ravens, 34-31. There also was some controversy, as a fourth-and-goal pass fell incomplete after what might have been a hold on Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith.
“It was a missed call,” stated the intended receiver , Michael Crabtree. “[The referee] missed two or three in the game, but that was it right there, the Super Bowl was right there.
“I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to think about it. I don’t know, man. What do you think? I thought it was holding.”
Should the Ravens have been called for holding on the 49ers' critical fourth-and-goal pass late in Sunday's Super Bowl?

Added 49ers coach  Jim Harbaugh: “You know, I really want to handle this with class and grace, and we had several opportunities in this game. We didn’t play our best game, and the Ravens made a lot of plays and battled back. They competed to win. But there’s no question in my mind that it was a pass interference and hold on Crabtree on the last one.”
Niners running back Frank Gore isn’t convinced the best team won .
“They got away with one,” Gore said. “We showed we were the better team. It was just a couple plays here, a couple plays there.”
