San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh criticized the officials for what he believed was a pivotal non-call in the final minutes of Super Bowl XLVII. Officials determined Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith's contact with WR Michael Crabtree was incidental, but Harbaugh insisted a penalty should have been called. "I really want to handle this with class and grace, and we had several opportunities in this game," said Harbaugh. "We didn't play our best game, and the Ravens made a lot of plays and battled back. They competed to win. But there's no question in my mind that there was a pass interference - and then a hold on Crabtree on the last one." Harbaugh would later criticize the officiating again during his postgame news conference. "I realize I'm on the side of the 49ers," Harbaugh said. "I'm the coach of the 49ers - there is some bias there. But I wouldn't be bringing it up unless it was obvious. But that's not the way (the refs) saw it. That's the only reason I bring it up."
