Today well they want away from the running game against the Vikings I'm not sure why but they did not do a heavy dose of Frank Gore early and when they tried it late. It was a little too late. What's your analysis on the. Well yeah I asked Jim Harbaugh why they did -- feed the ball more of Frank Gore early in the game and he said he really didn't have an answer for that but. He'll Frank Gore such a huge part of four -- offense and they go into the metrodome. And he rushes for five point three yards a carry you think the foreigners are gonna come out there with a victory but. The forty -- offensive game plan was more. Steered toward the passing game Alex Smith had some opportunities to make plays the prayers did not make them against the Vikings. The -- have been a big story of course this entire season and late in the game the announcers. On the national broadcast kept saying that Jim Harbaugh was not allowed to challenge because he didn't have a time out if you don't have a time out he can't do a challenge and then they said. Bet the refs awarded Jim not one but two extra time -- what what happened there. Well of the they refereed can rowand. Allowed Jim Harbaugh ought to call a time now. And being changed from the time out to the challenge. So when he called his third time now he should have been able to challenge that the next play in the 49ers got the ball back and Toby Gerhart fumble. -- the referee allowed the 49ers to keep that time out it's the same thing happened a minute later where Jim Harbaugh called a timeout to stop the clock -- changed his mind and decided to throw the challenge flag so there were two 49ers challenges. That should not have happened on Sunday. Hide that -- or joining us from Youngstown Ohio.
