The San Francisco 49ers have a chance to win their sixth Super Bowl on Sunday. At the center of attention, quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a dazzling athlete who has achieved remarkable success against all odds.
The Harbaugh Bowl is just a few days away. The Ravens and 49ers are set to meet on the biggest stage in all of sports. The Ravens will need to contain Colin Kaepernick if they are to win on Sunday, but the 49ers will need to do the same with Joe Flacco.
For years, both Neil Diamond and the Super Bowl Halftime show have been giving us, let’s say, mild overproduction (read: glitzy, flashy, and potentially unnecessary). So who’s got the edge between these two cheesy industry mainstays?
Michael Crabtree is trying to maintain every possible element of surprise he might still have left heading into his first Super Bowl – and will certainly take any advantage he can get this week.
A few years ago, the wildcat formation took the league by storm. But the NFL quickly adapted and now that style of play is all but extinct. Now the league must find a way to defend the Pistol Read Option. This style of offense has catapulted San Francisco to the Super Bowl with the help of young star Colin Kaepernick. If Baltimore wants to hoist the Lombardi trophy on Sunday, they’ll need to shut their offense down. That’s easier said than done.
Brett Favre is returning to the NFL — to work for the NFL Network.
Mario Manningham hobbled into the Superdome stands on crutches and found an out-of-the-way seat to watch his San Francisco teammates go through media day frenzy on the field below, his emotions mixed.
Super Bowl XLVII is almost here, and now that the Ravens and 49ers are dealing with all the festivities of this week, this will be the challenging part.
The Osgood family found four seats for sale on Craigslist through an individual claiming to be a Baltimore Ravens season ticketholder. The cost seemed fair – $5,900, about double the original price.
Faidley’s crab cakes vs Napa Valley wine. Maryland senators made a friendly wager with California senators on the outcome of Super Bowl XLVII.
Julie has been sent a memo on what she can and can’t say regarding the The Game That Must Not Be Named in New Orleans this coming Sunday. She’s not very happy about it. See why in this video.
Aldon Smith has not recorded a sack in 5 games, and after recording 19.5 through 13 games, there is of course questions as to why the 49er’s single season sack king has failed to get to the quarterback as of late. An injured shoulder, and the absence of Justin Smith were a big part of it, and both of these issues have only gotten better, meaning that Aldon is primed to have another big day on Super Bowl Sunday, unless the Ravens decide to let another player beat them.
Joe Flacco has been one of the most criticized quarterbacks in the history of the NFL. And he isn’t even 30 yet. That’s a pretty impressive feat. Probably not as impressive as beating Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in back to back weeks in order to clinch a Super Bowl berth. But it’s pretty close. Flacco shows up in big games and gets the job done. It’s what makes him elite.
Harbaughs vs. Baldwins? Wow. What a battle! Let’s dig deep to see which pair of brothers has the upper hand.
