It was a play that could have defined the legacy of Michael Crabtree. In fact, it was three plays.
On the final drive of Super Bowl XLVII, with the 49ers trailing 34-29 and time running out, Crabtree was targeted three times in the end zone by Colin Kaepernick. All three times, he was unable to catch the pass, the final attempt thwarted because of a controversial no-call on a holding penalty by the Ravens.
Now, perhaps we have an explanation as to what Crabtree was dealing with at the time.
On Thursday, he told the Rich Eisen Podcast that he temporarily lost vision on the final drive after a hit to the head. More details are sure to come as to when and how that hit occurred, and whether it had any impact on the outcome of the Super Bowl.
