08:00 AM ET 12.03 | On the face of things, the timing wasn't quite right. Comfortably ahead late in the fourth quarter, San Francisco called a play Colin Kaepernick had run hundreds of times at the University of Nevada but seldom with the 49ers -- an option pitch. Kaepernick's toss sailed over the head of receiver Ted Ginn and wound up in the end zone in the hands of a Rams' cornerback. ... The option pitch was a dubious play call, both because the 49ers had not run it often this year -- and never to Ginn -- and because of the circumstances at the time. The 49ers were ahead by eight with 3:11 remaining and were facing 3rd and 3 at their own 17-yard line. "That was on us," Jim Harbaugh said of the coaching staff. "That was the wrong play to call at that time."
