...But I’m still going with a Brother vs. Brother Super Bowl.

Yes, I love the road teams on Sunday. Throw the point spreads, the recent history, and the home crowds away.

In Harbaugh(s), I trust.

Unless something goes very wrong, it looks like the Ravens will be the AFC representative and the Niners have already wrapped up the NFC. So, it's Jim vs. John Harbaugh.

Jeez. We are going to hear this harbaugh brothers crap 24 hours a day.
the nfl has gone soft with this stinkin’ human interest angle. just tell me the score. I don’t care if the left tackle’s mother is battling foot odor.

that’s exactly the crap that led me to give the Olympics. It was unwatchable. 3 hours of crap leading up to a 90 second race.

Joe Flacco turned in Tom Brady and Tom Brady turned into a very average quarterback. Get ready for two long weeks of the Ray Lewis lovefest.

CBS just showed a graphic where Brady is 67-0 when leading at the half. Well, make that 67-1 now.

Brady can’t do it all by himself. Pats offensive line sucks.

F*ck Ray L. I live in Baltimore (Towson), they worship that as*hole on a daily basics. I tell everyone once that thug is gone, I may support the Ravens, until then, I am hoping they lose in every game. He needs to spend 52 months/years in jail as far as I am concerned. What’s that “N” word? F*ck him and the Ravens.

NFL Coach (Jim) Harbaugh has heart for Christian missions: “The doors that God will open for you by the people you meet or by the circumstances you’re in [allow] your character to be shaped and your spirit to grow,” he (Harbaugh) said. “Those kinds of doors are opened for [me] here.”

This will be a hard Super Bowl to predict a winner but I’ll go with the 49ers....too many options on that offense

Did you see Ray Lewis thuggishly mugging for the cameras during the National Anthem? The commentators said he was emotional but, at least to me, it revealed he has no reverence at all for America.

Pollard’s hit on Ridley head to head (KO-ing Ridley) wasn’t called, add the ref standing on the way of a run by Brady and that was the game!

Ray Lewis will not win the game for the Ravens. They win when Joe Facco comes to play. I predict he outplays
Colin Kadiddenopper and the Ravens win the Super Bowl.
The way the Seahawks took apart SF it is hard for me to believe they could win the Super Bowl. They damn sure aint the best team in the league, Denver is, even though they pissed away the game to the Ravens.

We’ll be seeing them in everything from Dorito’s to car commercials.

and during the game, they will hype the brother angle on nearly every play.

john watches jim watch a first down. jim watches john watch a turnover. john reacts to jim’s reaction. oh, then the post game hug.

no thanks. I’ll pass.

I thought Tebow was the only Christian in the NFL and that everyone else is a Satan-worshiper for not picking and/or starting him. ( I don’t need a sarcasm tag here do I?)

The last time the Niners were in the Super Bowl, their soon-to-be foes were still the Cleveland Browns!

No you won’t . The brother angle will be neutralized by the Eastern
sports media establishments typical ignoring of West Coast teams
(except when it comes to LA). However, be prepared for copious
quantities of Ray Lewis.

Good Catholic boy, but so is his brother, but will have to go with the Ravens because of Joe Flacco.

Harbaugh Humbug!

This game is meaningless without the best team in the NFL.

Go Seahawks!

Metrosexual Tom Brady is (was) 67-0 when leading at the half at HOME. He lost 2 Super Bowls when leading at the half.

Also, the low class Patriots haven’t won jack since they were busted for cheating. 18-1 baby.

Ugh ... ravens v. 9ers.

Since both can’t possibly lose playing against one another, I guess I’ll have to support the ravens. Can’t have the 9ers get to 6 Lombardis before my Cowboys do. But alas ... the Cowboys are doing everything they can to make it easier on the 9ers to do so.

sigh
