Check your history books Frank and you'll see that in superbowl twenty-five and many others, the best team doesn't always win.  

and/or

Your team chose not to play the best football they could have played in the biggest, most watched sporting event of the year.

It's not who has the best team, it's the team that plays best on Sunday.  The 49ers didn't even play a full half of their best football let alone a whole game.  They have no one to blame but themselves.

The best team is the one that wins the game. That's why the game is played.

And the reason that the subject of this post is Frank Gore is why??

It's not the team who is best on paper who always wins, it's the team that was best on the field that day -- that's why they play the game.

Yes.  Because of the single elimination format ,  sometimes anything can happen .  It's a pity football can never have a series format like baseball , basketball, hockey .  It makes it less likely that there are upsets since the more talented team tends to emerge victorious in those series .

Sorry Frank Gore, but your "better" team only really played one good quarter, and it was the third quarter at that. The Ravens were the better team the rest of the way, and your offensive coaches let you down with questionable play calling at the end of both halfs.

It's a stupid comment, but the guy just lost the Super Bowl. It's understandable.

Gore's performance was one of least remarkable of any running back i can remember in the SB. What did he end up with like 25yds on 5 carries, weak.

weak? 19 carries, 110 yards, 5.8 ypc, 1 TD

Maybe if they gave him the ball a few times when it was 1st and goal in the 4th Q this game would've ended differently.
