There was nearly four minutes to go in the game.
We were down by three scores. Weirder crap has happened over the history of the league than to lose a game when you were up by 18 in the fourth quarter. Two TDs with the associated 2-pt conversion and now they're only a FG away from a loss.
You DO recall they scored 14 pts in a two minute stretch just before halftime, right? So a quick 14-pt (or 16 if we go for two both times) is possible. Not probable the way we sucked but possible.
So yeah, I totally see Harbaugh choosing to make it a 21 point lead instead of a 18-pt lead. From a certain viewpoint, it's respect. It was Harbaugh saying, "We've seen you come from behind before and I ain't taking no chances."
Not classless, common sense.
