They should have called more on the Seahawks secondary than they did, including a deep bomb to Crabtree that would have made it 1st & goal.
You don't know what would have happened if that non-fumble was reviewable. The few replays they did were inconclusive. You do know that multiple refs can end up making different calls, right? One might call down by contact, and another forward progress. His forward progress was clearly
stopped, and defenders can't just hold someone up all day so they can keep trying to strip the ball.
There were plenty of non-personal foul calls against the 49ers, from holding to offsides to false start to illegal hands to the face to pass interference. That's just off the top of my head.
