Whether or not Michael Crabtree was held by Jimmy Smith in the end zone as the San Francisco 49ers' last drive fell short is a Super Bowl issue that will long be debated.

Jim Harbaugh, however, did not allow any room for interpretation about his true feelings. The 49ers coach ranted and raved, begged and pleaded after officials held their flags as Colin Kaepernick's final pass fell to the ground in the 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

“There was no question in my mind there was a pass interference, and then a hold on the last play," Harbaugh told reporters after the game.

Harbaugh's histrionics didn't change anything, but it did provide great fodder for the scores of camera lenses that were pointed toward the fiery coach. While Harbaugh was very animated at the end, you can see him gradually accept his team's fate as his unsuccessful campaign wore on.
