What seems much, much more likely is that your ridiculous position, designed solely to get the results you have, is 100% without any trace of merit.
Let's pretend that the second fumble never happened, and that Williams was tackled on that spot: Tell the class the results of every 49 drive in the forth quarter. How many were 3 and outs (hint...it rhymes with "ball but bun")
Total yards in the second half?
How about this one: a roughing the passer call against the giants gave the niners more yards than they had passing in the 4th!!
Don't know what game Gore or you watched, but he one I watched had the Giants D (that you routinely credit and rightfully so) absolutely took complete control of that game in the second half and the niners could do nothing about it.
But somehow, in Gore's mind (and yours) the niners were A-OK.
Maybe they were resting?
