Re: What happen to the short passing game?
Well, he only had one timeout in the 4th quarter, and that got burned on a player injury. I don't think clock management was an issue.

And the challenge? Harbaugh admitted after the game that he wished he had not challenged that play, but I got to wonder what he or anyone saw that they thought was challenge-worthy to begin with. That had the be the quickest replay review I have ever seen. The referee was in-and-out of the booth in about 20 seconds. Horrible, horrible challenge.
