    So do I. The Falcons make big mistakes in games. Their defense seems to vanish at times during games. The 49ers are going to be a lot tougher.

    49ers will definitely be a tougher match up. But on neutral turf I think the Ravens have an advantage.

    It's the damn superbowl and like Flacco said it will be damn hard for anyone to kick us off the field.
    It always seems the best team in football is the team getting ready to play the Ravens these days.

    The 49ers are the most complete, most deadly team in the NFC. The only teams near their level are the Seahawks and Broncos. Solid defense, solid run game, great quarterbacking.

    They are the best team on the other side of the tournament.

    It's what John Harbaugh said: "To be the ultimate champion, you have to beat the best."

    Champion of champions.

    Its all about the QB in the Super Bowl.

    So I think Atlanta would have been tougher.........first of all, Matt Ryan has played us before and beaten us in a Dome. He is patient and a possession passer, and throws a deep out on a rope. With 5 years under his belt he could have been very tough. And they are a dome turf team that plays twice a year in New Orleans.....so it would have been comfortable for them.

    San Francisco is a great team and has tremendous weapons in Davis and Gore, but Kaepernick is not a possession passer, he isn't going to methodically move from the 20-40 with shorter passes and then light us up. and he is going to be a high risk and reward player. He may make some amazing throws.....but he may also force huge mistakes and in the SB the mistakes are amplified by ten times the benefit of the big play. The Super Bowl almost always comes down to QB play and I like a 5th year battle tested played over a second year guy who has played in a handfull of playoff games.

    Would the game be 30 minutes or 60?

    It's atlanta playing in a dome, matter of fact, a dome of their division rival so it's familiar territory for them. Matt Ryan and those receivers can easily gas our D and combine that with a few 3 and outs on Flacco, it could turn into a bad day. Then again, had Matt Ryan converted that 4th down and won the game, he would be in pretty banged up shape...in some ways the ravens are probably better off dealing with San Francisco because Akers isn't always sharp right now, especially compared to Tucker. Let Kaep get his yards, but if they can force them to make field goals (especially long ones in a loud dome), that can put the Ravens in a better position especially if the resulting Ravens drives end up being TDs. As for the "Seattle and St Louis beat them so we should" thing, that doesnt always pan out. Those are SF's division rivals so they are familiar and built to compete with them. Seattle at home is tough for anyone to beat. St louis beat san francisco but got totally creamed at home 45-7 by the patriots which San Francisco was able to beat as an away team. It's sort of how the bengals under carson palmer used to be push-overs for other teams in the league but would give us fits.

    I would have liked to play the Falcons to finally put this Flacco v Ryan draft question to rest~!

    Sorry. Would've rather had the falcons all day. 9ers are one of the most complete teams in the league. Can run, pass when they need to, stop the run, and, ehhh, sometimes play the pass. The falcons can..... pass. That's it. Their defense sucks and they have no running game. Dome or no dome, would've much rather had the falcons

    I echo your sentiments. Kaep, while young, has the intangibles to put a hurt on this Ravens defense. I'm just glad there's no Cam Cameron because I think we have the offense clicking on all cylinders should the game turn into a track meet.

    Not sure how much we'll get out of that...Alex smith was the QB then, several weeks before Kaep took over. Kaep lost twice and tied once since he became starter and the losses were away games to his division rivals.

    Mannihgham is out for the year. This happened on December 25th.....replaced by Moss.
    justin Smith has a partially torn triceps and needs surgery. Ths happened week 14 and he was the 49ers pass rush.
    his injury more than anything is going to effect their game plan against us.
    Akers is injured and has missed 14 FGs this year.
