Super Bowl XLVII

Recommended Posts

I want to see the 49ers win it, and I think they will. Rey Lewis and his impending retirement will fire the Ravens up, but their offence is just to inconsistent. If San Francisco's defence can neutralize Flacco I think Kaepernick can manufacture just enough points to give them the edge over Baltimore.

Of my 100 sh**s to give, I'm giving this game 11 of them. Of those 11, 5 will want the Ravens to win for trolling purposes, 3 will want the 49ers to win for uniform purposes, and the remaining 3 sh**s will be dedicated toward contemplating fantasy hockey, for some reason.

My hatred of the Baltimore Cravens having subsided somewhat since the death of Fart Modell, had this game happened a year ago I'd have wished for the 49'ers to win 84-0.

Now however, with that ***hole dead, I've mellowed. A 63-7 win by the 49'ers would do suffice. :D

I'm very conflicted. I don't like Jim Harbaugh, but I don't like the Ravens being division rivals and all. Though, I saw the Ravens in person and it'd be cool to say that I saw the eventual super bowl winners (and saw them get beat by the Bengals).

A 49ers win would tie them win the Steelers for the most super bowls, but I'd give them the advantage because of their Super Bowl winning percentage. I just want steelers fans to stop bragging about how they have the most super bowl wins.

Of the "go out on top" guys, I'd prefer it to be Randy Moss over Ray Lewis, though, both guys aren't exactly likable.

On the other hand, I grew up hating the 49ers because of what they did to the Bengals in the Super Bowl and San Francisco is turning into the new Boston. The Giants have 2 recent world series and to add a super bowl on top of that? It's just not fair.

I hate sports. I'm going to go into it with nothing and maybe be swayed one way or the other.

At least it's better than last year's pointless Giants-Patriots rematch that nobody cared about. THAT was the worst super bowl ever, IMO.

Being from Northern California and being a huge Colin Kaepernick fan, I obviously want the 49ers. But if the Ravens beat them, I'd be perfectly ok with that. One thing that had always disappointed me was that Ed Reed, who's one of my all time favorites and one of the best defensive players ever, had never gotten a shot to win a Super Bowl. Seeing him and Ray Lewis win in the final game of their Hall of Fame careers would be pretty special.

I love the Harbaugh brothers too. Really, to the casual observer this is a hard Super Bowl to dislike.

This will be the first Super Bowl in a while that I can just sit back and watch the game and not dislike someone. That being said, I think that the 49ers win win 24-20

As far as America is concerned, I think San Francisco is much more tolerated than Boston is. And any Packers, Bears, or Giants fan would love to argue with Steelers fans who brag about the Super Bowl titles list. The NFL didn't begin in 1966, and the Steelers were an out-and-out joke until they moved to the AFC.

I literally cannot make up my mind about who will the Super Bowl. I see it as a very even matchup that can swing either way.

To make my pick, I'm going to simulate 20 Madden 13 games with the roster updated and use the averages to make my pick. After the game, we can check back to see how accurate the simulation is.

this will be a super bowl where i will be pleased with whomever wins.

one thing that did get overlooked is that Randy Moss avenged his '99 Vikings loss to the Falcons in the NFC title game. I thought that was pretty neat. I was really disappointed when that Vikings team lost to the falcons. I was rooting for them all season long.

I always enjoy looking back and comparing what was to what is. So here's the SB I coin toss:

As compared to SB XLVI:

Go Ravens... I don't want to see a divison rival win it all knowing that, not too long ago, the Forty Whiners had there asses stomped on by Seattle.

To me, I think the Ravens will win because of the motivation of Ray Lewis and that Joe Flacco is a better QB than Kaepernick.

49ers all the way.

I just want that scumbag Ray Lewis to go away. Do like Brendon Ayanbadejo, though.

I'd simply like it if both teams got to wear their coloured uniforms in the same game. Red contrasts with black enough to do so. I think it' looks really awful when there are dark-coloured helmets on top of white jerseys.
