It’s starting to look more and more like the Ravens are destined for a Super Bowl Championship.
-Ray Lewis’ last run.
-Promoting Jim Caldwell to O.C.
-Ray Rice’s 4th & 26.
-Joe Flacco’s BOMB to Jacoby Jones to beat the Broncos.
-Benard Pollard’s forced fumble in New England.

Everything seems to be pointing in one direction…up. And it’s hard to state otherwise. But I’ll give it a shot.

What about San Francisco?
They’ve certainly seen the chips fall into place for them this season, very much like the Ravens.
-Alex Smith’s concussion… Allowing Kaepernick to get his first career start.
-Recovering a punt return fumble, lost by the Packers (not49’ers Kyle Williams).
-Kaepernick breaking off for a 56 yard TD run to set the tone at Lambo Field.
-Shutting out Atlanta in the second half, to overcome a 28-7 deficit in the Georgia Dome.

The 49ers have shown that they are able to overcome adversity when backed against the wall. With that being said, I’m going to go with the 49ers as the Super Bowl champs.
Actually, I don’t think it will be that close.

I believe the 49ers’ aggressive offensive attack will be too much for the Ravens to handle. With so much speed and athleticism, I can’t imagine the Ravens defense going step for step for 60 minutes. The scoreboard will look as if the game was closer than it was, but in reality, the 49ers will have a comfortable lead heading into the 4th quarter. The deficit is too much for the Ravens to overcome, and the 49ers will seal the deal with their downhill rush attack.

San Francisco 34, Baltimore 27
Kaepernick is MVP.

And last but not least………..


I cannot wait for this matchup. Obviously, I am always excited for the Super Bowl, being a football fan, but this game, I actually cannot wait for these two teams to take the field. Yes, the two brothers are going against each other, but that is far from the only thing that makes this game compelling. What’s exciting is that these teams play the same style of football, and both do it well. They both play good defense, run the football well, and can score.

The most compelling element to be is the two quarterbacks, Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick, as amazing as it sounds, will be making his 10th career start tomorrow in the Super Bowl, and has been quite impressive as we all know. His ability to make it happen with his legs as well as his arm makes him fun to watch, and the bright lights of the big stage don’t faze him. Then we have Joe Flacco, who has been in the playoffs every year since he was drafted, and is looking to cash in and make that step to elite status.

Both quarterbacks will play well, but Flacco’s downfield passing will prove to be the difference. Flacco recorded the second most attempts of over 20 yards or more(92), and was still able to record 11 TDs vs 0 INTs. Torrey Smith will catch a long TD from him and in the end, they will win this one in a close one. Don’t worry SF fans, you will be back.

Winner: Ravens

So we are a little bit split at the J-E-T Press.  What do you guys think about the game?
