  1. Two missed holding calls?

    Just own it. They lost because they didn't play well all game. That rookie quarterback you mention failed big time when he was in the red zone. Just one more red zone conversion and they would have won.

    1. Colin Kaepernick played well. He did everything he needed to do. The defense and special teams were shaky. The one interception he threw was actually pretty understandable.

  2. There was only one holding call. The one in the endzone on the safety would have resulted in a safety anyway.

    But, the message in your post is spot on, there's a lot we feel is broken about the system, but we still need to find a way to work with what we have and make the best of it.

    1. I was thinking of the holding and offsides not called on second down, actually. But I'm also admittedly bitter about it. I had to throw it in there ;)

      Thanks for the kind words, though. I'm going to try and play catch today.

  3. The 49ers got away with a late holding call against the Falcons.

    Karma.

    But I was rooting for you anyway. :-)

  4. You mention advocacy here. I am ready. I have this desire to shout from the rooftops that we need more to stand up and say that what is happening to our public schools is akin to standing on the deck of the Titanic playing the cello while the entire ship sinks. How? How can we get more voices from the 'inside' - NOT anymore talking heads or 'experts' who have never stepped foot in a classroom, but those in the trenches to stand up and say what it is that needs to be said. (Cue John Mayer) I have just started looking into ways to go talk to representatives. My goal would be to speak before Congress. How can we make this happen?

    1. I'm still not sure how to make that happen, but it needs to.
