    I get why we are underdogs. The Niners are damned good. We cannot take this game for granted. We have to play lights out. The Niners are very capable of applying the smackdown on anybody (see what they did to the Patriots in Foxboro).

    Hope you are right. The key is winning the mental game and trying to confuse Kaepernick. Ed is a master at that even if he has lost a step. There would be no sweeter feeling for him and Jacoby to win the Super Bowl in their home town. Get it done, guys.

    Agree with all of the above. However, if Kaepernick runs, he had better keep his head on a swivel, because he is going to get hit......hard. I firmly believe that the key to this game is slowing down the 49ers running game with Gore. If the Ravens can contain Gore, I think they will be able to rattle Kaepernick.

    As a Steeler fan I would be rooting 100% for a Raven loss VS anyone in the playoffs except the 49ers. I hope we retain the only Lombardi six pack.

    It is hard for me to say it but "Go RA...." . Sorry I can't do it.

    Re: Ravens will win Super Bowl XLVII

    Coming from the AFC north...we face tough defenses consistently so going against the 49ers will be no different. Joe and company will do what they always do...move the ball and score points.

    ...and back to disciplined defense against the "squirt gun" offense. The 49ers will have issues against our defense...they only practice against their own defense but game time is another story!

    Yes...the Ravens will win Super Bowl XLVII !!!

    I think Ed will have a tremendous game. I've noticed he plays harder and faster the bigger the game is, the more he's motivated. He needs this game. It's in his home city no less. All those years of being so close, and now, perhaps the greatest free safety of all time gets to match wits against a 10 game starter? You can bet he's psyched out for this one.

    I really love the story line of this year. Start off strong. Star player loses a brother, put on amazing performance. Stumble, lose to worst rival in your own house with their back-up quarter back. Make miraculous comeback in improbable and lucky play. Get beaten by the team that blocked football from coming back to your city for so many years. Fire the most controversial figure on the team, replace him with the mentor to one of the greatest players ever. Get blown out the next week. Then blow out the reigning champions.

    Playoffs start. Your icon, the GOD of your team, announces that this will be his last battle through the gantlet.

    Play the team that left you in the middle of the night and their new leader of the future. Destroy them.

    Everyone says you will lose to the next opponent.

    Face the one who blew you out in your house, one of the legendary greatest to ever play. Steal his dreams from him.

    Everyone says that it is impossible to defeat the next ones, the masters.

    Go back into the lion's lair, face the ones who denied you the year before, took the thing you deserved most. Face off against the most intimidating dynasty ever. Abuse them.

    Now, the final test. An opponent in mirrors. Two brothers, two defenses, two ground attacks. Matching on nearly every facet, from opposing coasts, and of the same father. But one team is beginning their dynasty, launched forth by a new component, new techniques and technology. The other has slowly ground away, chipped through hardships, and been in the arena many times before.

    What happens?

    They have to win. It can't be written any other way.

    John will get his vindication, finally proving that he is worthy of the same praise and admiration his brother receives. Joe will finally prove himself and attain the level of mastery he has been working for all these years. Caldwell and Pees's reputations will see a re-birth.

    Ray will ride into the sunset, having successfully handed the rod of leadership off to Joe. Ed will part from the team amicably, finally gaining the ring he so deserves, and taking a lucrative contract somewhere warm were he doesn't have to tackle. Birk can give his battered body the rest it so needs. Anquan has his redemption for what the Steelers took from him. Torrey dedicates his ring to his brother.

    It's too important to not win.

    I hope and dream that you are right. But if last year's AFCCG taught me anything it's that life doesn't necessarily go the most poetic way just because it can't be written any other way. We have to make this magic happen on our own. And I hope the team is preparing for the Niners and not still basking in the (admittedly awesome) glow of beating the Patriots in Foxboro. Just. Win. Make this happen, guys.

    Looking briefly at the 49ers forum, they apparently think Kaepernick is going to be running all over the field. I have confidence in our defense being able to stop him. Let him meet Pollard in the open field once and we'll see how much running he does.

    Exactly. RGIII tried to run on the Ravens, and had some success until he got splattered by Ngata. Kaepernick is going to get drilled if/when he tries to run on the Ravens defense. Hey Colin, Messers Pollard, Lewis, and Ngata are waiting to introduce themselves to you.

    Re: Ravens will win Super Bowl XLVII

    Was it just me or did it seem like the secondary of SF wasn't very good against the Falcons? I know they're supposed to have a great defense, but it looked like they allowed Julio Jones, Roddy White, and Tony Gonzalez to get open constantly.

    I really hope that Flacco takes advantage of that if they don't show up again.

    As hyped as their safeties are, they can't cover jack shit.

    But Niners aren't a hated team of mine. Just cool to experience us in the SB. And hope we ball out like NE/Indy/Den - I'll be happy win or lose if we paly like that.

    I still remember what Ray (or was Sizzle?) said to the guys as soon after the "Flacco-Fling" in that Denver game - "It doesn't matter if we don't win" or something to at effect.

    Let's hope that team takes that mentality - that while the win against NE was great; it doesn't matter if we don't win the whole thing.

    Re: Ravens will win Super Bowl XLVII

    Yeah, I'm not buying into the team being better or more physical than ours. People tend to forget this is still not the same team that was even 3 weeks away from the playoffs. I'm sorry, but after beating the Colts with Andrew Luck, going into Denver and winning a shootout with them, and then curbstomping the Patriots in their house, I don't see what the 49'ers bring to the table that the Ravens cannot handle.

    The Ravens beat two of the great teams in the NFL with two of the greatest QB's in the game today on the road, and somehow a 2nd year player with 9 starts under his belt will be the one that is better than them?

    Somehow WE don't have weapons the 49'ers have to account for? I have heard no-one on TV ask yet how the 49'ers are going to contain Ray Rice, Bernard Pearce, Anquan Boldin, Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones, and Dennis Pitta. All of a sudden we are back to having a team of nobodies and it's the Ravens that will have to keep up with the 49'ers?

    No way. We're winning this game. We can keep it close, and we can shootout with them if it comes to it. I don't dislike the 49'ers at all. But I don't think they have the overall firepower to beat us.
