49ers Decision To Call A Timeout With Seconds Remaining Results In Injury

The San Francisco 49ers on Sunday were thoroughly embarrassed by the Kansas City Chiefs to the tune of 31-10. With seconds remaining in the game, San Francisco threw a bomb getting inside the Chiefs 20-yard line.

There were just three seconds left on the game clock and media, coaches and players filed onto the field thinking the game was over.

↵

Instead, the referee announced that Mike Singletary, 49ers head coach, called a timeout with two seconds remaining on the clock. So they filed everyone back off of the field and lined up for the play.

The 49ers hit Josh Morgan in the end zone making the score 31-9.

Ugh is the first word.

↵

Ouch is the second word.

Maybe it was bad karma for calling a timeout with two seconds left in a game you were losing by four scores but WR Josh Morgan went down on the with what was called a knee strain.

↵

Maybe not the best decision.
