Superbowl 47 was a nail biter. The Niners came storming back after the unexpected power surge but came up short as the Baltimore Ravens became Superbowl champions. Did the 49ers come too short or did they deserve to be hoisting up the Lombardi trophy?
The answer to that question is yes. When it was fourth and goal and they were down by five points with thirty-seconds left Colin Kaepernick threw a fade route to Michael Crabtree that fell incomplete. What really happened on that play was that Crabtree was held by Ravens’ defensive back Jimmy Smith. This was the play that would make or break the game and the referees did not call anything on that play. If it was called a hold/pass interference, as it should have been, the 49ers could have been Superbowl champs. I think it is just sad that they lost on a missed call. The Niners just got robbed. They should have had another chance to win the game and it is horrible that there was no call.
The 49ers are the deserving champions but congratulations Ravens you guys played great. What a way to send Ray out with some style.
There were a lot of good questions this year at media day for the Superbowl but there were some stupid questions too. What would you ask if you could be a part of media day?
If I was there, here are some of the questions I would ask…
You all probably know that I’m a huge Oregon Ducks fan so my first question would go out to LaMichael James.
“What did it feel like to get your first NFL career touchdown last week against the Atlanta Falcons?”
I would ask Jim Harbaugh, “Who was a more demanding coach, Bo Schembechler, Mike Ditka or your dad?”
I would ask Ray Lewis “What does it feel like to play your last career football game in the Superbowl?”
I would ask Randy Moss, “Randy, you said that you think you are the best wide receiver ever so do you think you are better than Jerry Rice? What do you think the San Francisco fans would think of that?
I would ask all the players from both teams, “What are your favorite nicknames and least favorite nicknames?”
Finally, I would ask Colin Kaepernick, “If you win the Superbowl where will you go first, to Disney World or the tattoo parlor?”
