Even if that had happened, I think Harbaugh would have moved on to Kaepernick because he is an immensely talented dual threat QB.
And what about the 13 possessions that ended because the 49ers QB couldn't extend them?
The defense did its job. Competent QB'ing wins that game easily.
If you want to blame the 49er defense for a playoff loss, look at the SB, not last year's NFCCG. That's like blaming the Chiefs offense for the '03 loss when they made two mistakes all game.
