49ers players feel Seahawks’ pain after questionable Super Bowl play call

The 49ers were down 34-29.

The Seahawks were down 28-24.

The 49ers started at their own 20.

The Seahawks started at their own 20.

The 49ers’ first play was an eight-yard run by Frank Gore.

The Seahawks’ first play was a 31-yard pass down the left sideline to Marshawn Lynch.

Gore rushed 33 yards to Baltimore’s seven-yard line.

After Jermaine Kearse’s fortunate reception put Seattle at New England’s five-yard line, Lynch rushed four yards on the next play.

The 49ers gave LaMichael James(!) a carry before throwing three incomplete passes in Michael Crabtree’s direction.

The Seahawks targeted Ricardo Lockette on a pass that was intercepted by Malcolm Butler.


The situations weren’t identical, but one can see how Bruce Miller and Joe Staley might have a different perspective on the Seahawks’ now-infamous decision to throw to Lockette.

And in case you weren’t sure what Staley meant by that tweet …
