It was blatently obvious holding, but the ref was afraid to make the call and basically give the 49ers the game with a first down on the 1-yard line. No ref ever wants to decide who wins and loses with a penalty flag, so he just choked on his whistle... 


The 4th down non-call for interference against Roddy White in the NFC Championship was every bit as bad.  Niners made it to the bowl on a blown call, and lost the bowl on a blown call.  Sometimes you get crap like that, for example, the Steelers/Seahawks bowl was a total waste of time as well.

The last three calls were questionable at best. Gore and Vernon don't tough the ball at money time, not sure I can understand it?
