In response to RockScully's comment:
Why is Moss to blame and an air mailed pass? Kaepernick played tight the entire 1st half. His cockiness backfired when Balt took away the pistol. That simple.
Because Moss ran the wrong route?
That pass wasn't air mailed. It was a nice tight spiral. It went exactly where Kaep intended to throw it. Either Kaep or Moss made the wrong read.
Given Moss's history, I would say it was Moss. Either he misread the coverage, or decided he didn't want to put himself in a position to get crunched. or maybe running the correct pattern required him to fight through the coverage and he decided to take the play off rather than get roughed up.
Moss should have at least tried to catch the ball.
OK, Ok, I know that 2 former 49ers are biased but wanted to copy & paste comments from Romanowski and Mr. "The Catch", Dwight Clark.
Moss will not be a 49ers next year...do the Pats want him back ??? Doubt it !!! Retirement doesn't take any effort, Randy, hang them up please and yup I think Jerry Rice would have made some effort to catch or play defense & knock down the ball. Maybe just jumping he distracts the defender from intercepting...who knows.
Romanowski: Randy Moss had alligator arms

In Sunday night' s Super Bowl XLVII loss to the Ravens, 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss was the intended target of quarterback Colin Kaepernick on a second-quarter pass that was easily intercepted by safety Ed Reed. In Moss' defense, Kaepernick's throw seemed too high to be considered catchable. But Moss, going over the middle, made no effort whatsoever to reel it in.
Former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski, now a commentator on CSN Bay Area's 49ers Postgame Live, laid into Moss on set after San Francisco's 34-31 loss.
Randy Moss alligator armed it, he did not go up for the ball ! Romanowski shouted. He said he was the best receiver in the DAMN world .Okay, you hear me? OH GOD! That's what pisses me off! You are playing in the SUPER BOWL, guys!
Former NFL wide receiver Dwight Clark is also a CSN Bay Area post-game commentator and gave his take.
He did not alligator arm it, said Clark. He didn't even reach up for it! He watched it sail over his head!
