    I don't think they could have ejected Cary Williams on that play without also ejecting the 49'ers player.
    He did shove the ref, but he meant to shove #49 of the 49ers.
    What happened was #59 of the Ravens jumped in and grabbed #49 of the 49ers, while the ref rushed in to try and break things up. #59 of the Ravens moved #49 away and bumped Cary a little and since the ref jumped in to the spot where #49 had just been, when Cary took a shot at where #49 had been, he inadvertently shoved the ref.

    I think in the heat of the moment, the ref who was unharmed, forgot that a player wasn't supposed to do that, even by accident.

    Cary got lucky there, though he may have to pay a fine because of what he did.

    Just looking at the rule, yeah he should've been thrown out.

    I told my wife while we were watching it that he was gone. Glad I was wrong on that part.

    I'm glad they did because it was a 'heat of the moment' gesture and more of a stiff arm than shove. I believe the refs did a good job overall of letting the players play and not turning the game on a ticky tack penalty. But this could've been called and he still may get a fine. (but who cares)

    Yes, and there's a case to be made that Ngata should have been tossed as well.

    Ngata literally picked Boger up by the jersey and tossed him aside.

    But whatever. The Zebra's were obviously swallowing the whistle. I am willing to be bet both players will be sitting out the opener thanks to a suspension.

    Ngata tossed Boger? That is a stretch. I thought he was moving Boger away from the danger when Boger slipped?

    I'll admit that I didn't see Ngata throughout the entire scrum, but it definitely looked to me like he was protecting Boger more than anything else.

    Ngata was clearly helping Boger get to his feet after he stumbled.

    The 49ers are punk-assed bitches. The Ravens play really tough between the whistles and perhaps a little bit after, but the 49ers just take cheap shots late all the time. It wasn't just this game. I don't blame Cary for getting hot, but he needs to keep his cool in big situations. That shove is probably going to cost him half his Super Bowl share.

    There is no way Ngata gets suspended.

    Whoever the official was deserves some credit IMO for realizing it was not intentional, understanding the context in which it happened and just letting it go ....no harm/no foul
    I know there are other officials who are more self absorbed who might not have had as much sense

    Of course he should have been ejected...he didn't just bump a ref, he shoved him

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.
