Re "Oh, so close" (Super Bowl section, Feb. 4): As a lifelong 49ers fan, I have to say that I am sorely disappointed in the way Jim Harbaugh handled his post-game press conference. Instead of praising the way his team played in one of the most exciting games ever, he chose to beef about the officials.
There are bad and non-calls in any football game. A team either overcomes them or not. The 49ers still had plenty of opportunities to take the game over, but did not capitalize. They were simply outplayed on this given Sunday by a team that found ways to win it. Although I feel bad for my Niners, hats off to the Ravens and John Harbaugh, a gentleman.
