49ers and Ravens -- and Harbaugh brothers -- to face off in Super Bowl XLVII

Last edited Mon Jan 21, 2013, 12:31 AM - Edit history (2)

Source: CNN

One Harbaugh will win Super Bowl XLVII. Another will lose it.

That much is guaranteed after the San Francisco 49ers, coached by Jim Harbaugh, and the Baltimore Ravens, led by his brother John Harbaugh, beat their respective foes in conference championship games Sunday. Those wins mean the Harbaughs will be the first siblings to face off as head coaches in the NFL's title contest and, in fact, for any major U.S. professional sports championship.

Both teams rallied from halftime deficits on the road to earn berths in the Super Bowl, which will be played February 3 in New Orleans.

Baltimore did it by reeling off 21 straight points to overcome Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. It was sweet revenge for the Ravens, who lost last year's nail-biter AFC Championship to the same Patriots foe on the same Gillette Stadium field in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

I am an AFC guy, but NEVER root for the Ravens. Two reasons for that- I am a Steelers fan, and the Ravens were created by spitting in the face of Browns fans. No matter how good or bad the Browns were, the city always showed up for them. I hope Cleveland gets their act together soon- I want my arch rival back.

21. Singletary had a lot of the same staff and couldn't do it

Nolan did a lot of the scouting but couldn't do it.

Neither could get even half the way that Harbaugh did.

and Harbaugh got Kaepernick and Singletary didn't even like it when Alex Smith ran outside the pocket.

the idea that Singletary was key to this team, ridiculous.

This isn't college football, where the roster is loaded with the previous coach's players. The turnaround with Harbaugh has been dramatic and clear.

33. 18 years ago.....

The status of pro football in Cleveland was in flux for what? 2-3 months before the NFL agreed (correctly) to give Cleveland a new team with the same name and history as the old?

Art Modell neither still owns the Ravens nor is he even stillalive.

The Cleveland Browns II have been playing for 14 years now. Their failure to do anything of note over those 14 years is hardly Baltimore's fault.

I've got very little tears to shed for Cleveland regarding the Browns. Sorry.

I am a Steelers fan, but lived in C town from 81 to 92. Modell spit in the face of Cleveland fans, who supported his product for years.

19. I predict that in about four days everyone

will be sick of the stories about the Harbaugh family.

As a Minnesotan, I find it amusing that Randy Moss is in the Superbowl at age 35. The Vikings were 15-1 and heavily favored in the 1999 NFC Championship game and with all the Superbowls the Patriots have been to in the last ten years, they didn't get there wih Moss.

22. Moss' first Super Bowl was shortly before he turned 31 (Super Bowl XLII with the Patriots).

He actually came out of retirement to play with the niners this year. Glad he'll finally win a ring. The NFL Network did this Missing Rings episode about the 1998 Vikings, and that's on YouTube.

And Moss isn't the only player who first went to the Big Game in his 30s.

Brad Johnson (Tampa) first made the Super Bowl at age 34 in the same game with Oakland's Rich Gannon (who was 37).

John Elway (Denver) won the Super Bowl in his final two seasons with the Broncos, at ages 37 and 38.

47. Thanks for the info.

I guess my memory was faulty and what I meant was that the Patriots had won three Superbowls but lost the one Moss was in.

The Johnson and Gannnon Superbowl wins caused my father to claim the Vikings would have won those games if only the Vikinga had kept those QBs. He liked to blow smoke like that just to be annoying.

... change the name from the Super Bowl, to the Whining Coaches Bowl. If you have been forced by the networks/NFL to watch them "operate" on the sidelines, then you will know what I mean.

Sorry, sick of the "Harbaugh hype", since last year's play offs. P.T. Barnum is smiling, wherever he is these days.

32. I think its a cool story.

Regardless of what some think about the Ravens or 49ers, or the coaches or football in general, this is a cool story. What are the odds really that two brothers would face off as coaches in the Super Bowl? Let alone the odds that two brothers would be NFL coaches. I'm torn on who to pull for. I am a lifelong Vikings fan so I would like to see Randy Moss win one, but I am an alum and bigger fan of Alabama Football and Terrance "Mt." Cody and Courtney Upshaw play for the Ravens. Dilemma.

36. It has been an exciting Play Off season.

The games last week and this week were Great Games,
hard fought down to the very end.

"OK Boys! Who wants it the most?"!!

Who could have predicted a Ravens WIN over New England??!!!
(THAT is WHY I don't bet on football.)

I have no dog in this fight (Saints Fan from New Orleans),
but the Underdog Cinderella aura of the Ravens is appealing to me.
They are going to the SuperBowl because they never give up.
