Seattle Seahawks ~ "All of the things that you love about football and defense and being a linebacker, he stood for. And he was just as tough as you could get." - Pete Carroll Norton leads by example for Seahawks’ linebackers. Why have the linebackers become such a huge part of the Seahawks’ success? The players point to their position coach, Ken Norton, Jr., who won three consecutive Super Bowls as a player before helping the Seahawks win their first Super Bowl last February. When Pete Carroll hired Ken Norton, Jr. as a defensive assistant at the University of Southern California in 2004, he wanted Norton to bring the same intensity to coaching his linebackers that Norton had displayed as a linebacker in the National Football League. And Carroll had a front row seat for everything that entailed, because their paths had crossed in San Francisco – where Carroll was the 49ers’ Defensive Coordinator in 1995 and 1996, while Norton finished his career with the team (1994-2000). “Oh, he was really som ...
This was just a little therapy for me. This may be difficult for many Packers fans to watch. It's represents how I was reacting as everything that could go wrong .. did at the end of that game.

I hate the Patriots and find the Seahawks very annoying. I could care less about this Super Bowl in my own backyard.

We understand that at this time of the year, your lives and rooting interests revolve around two things only 1) The Eagles endless quest for a Super Bowl title 2) Praying that the Cowboys lose. We continue to not fully understand your hatred for The Boys since, in order, here are Dallas's main rivalries 1) Washington Redskins. 2) New York Giants. 3) San Francisco 49ers. 4) The Ryan family 11) The Philadelphia Eagles And although we are constantly brought to side splitting hysterics with things like Tony *** CowGirls, Jerry pays the refs, Chris Christie is campaigning. we suggest that it's time to look in the mirror and move on.

THREE Head CoachES, TWO GM'S FIRED ON NFL'S BLACK MONDAY: The ax has fallen on three NFL Head Coaches and two general managers whose underachieving teams disappointed fans and the owners who pay their big salaries. Getting their “Black Monday” pink slips were Head Coaches Rex Ryan of the New York Jets, Mike Smith of the Falcons and Marc Trestman of the Chicago Bears, and GM’s John Idzik of the Jets and Phil Emery of the Bears. Also falling victim to the revolving door of coaches was Jim Harbaugh, who agreed to part ways with the San Francisco 49ers in a departure that was long expected. “Black Monday” comes the day after the regular season has ended and is the day when coaches are traditionally relieved of their duties and their former teams promise a fresh start in the pursuit of Super Bowl glory. The end for Ryan and Idzik came after one of the most disappointing Jets seasons in franchise history. With the Jets (4-12) failing to make the postseason for the fourth straight season, Team owner W ...

Today In Sport's History: December 6, 1992: Jerry Rice scores record-breaking touchdown On this day in 1992, Jerry Rice of the San Francisco 49ers catches his 101st career touchdown reception, breaking the record for most career touchdowns previously held by Steve Largent. Drafted in 1985 out of Mississippi Valley State University, Rice became a star wide receiver for the 49ers, a team that would dominate professional football throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s. He was voted the National Football League’s Most Valuable Player after the players’-strike-shortened 1987 season, when he led the league in scoring (138 points) and set league records for touchdown receptions (23) and touchdown catches in consecutive games (13). Rice’s primary goal, however, was getting his team to the Super Bowl, which he did the following year. Catching 11 passes for 215 yards and one touchdown, Rice led the 49ers to a 20-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals and was named MVP of Super Bowl XXIII. Teaming with the 49er ...

VegasInsider.com has released the latest odds for each NFL team winning the Super Bowl and there is a new favorite. The Green Bay Pakers are now the oddsmaker's choice to win it all. The Packers (4/1) boast the best odds after winning six of their last seven games. The Patriots (9/2) trail right behind. The Denver Broncos (11/2), Philadelphia Eagles (22/1), and Detroit Lions (30/1) saw their chances dip after losses. The Arizona Cardinals began the season with 65/1 odds and are trying to be the first NFL team to host a Super Bowl in their own stadium. They continue to win and have the NFL's best record at 9-1, but Vegas isn't completely sold on them, leaving the Cardinals at 10/1 odds. Below is the full list of updated odds provided by Sportsbook.ag. Green Bay Packers 4/1 New England Patriots 9/2 Denver Broncos 11/2 Arizona Cardinals 10/1 San Francisco 49ers 14/1 Dallas Cowboys 18/1 Indianapolis Colts 18/1 Kansas City Chiefs 18/1 Seattle Seahawks 18/1 Philadelphia Eagles 22/1 Detroit Lions 30/1 Pittsburgh ...
St. Louis Rams (2-4) @ Kansas City Chiefs (3-3), 4:00am St. Louis comes off a week in which they upset the Super Bowl champs and will look to do it again this week as they head to Kansas City who have also found their groove with the return of Jamaal Charles. The combination of Charles and Knile Davis has proved quite the task for defences in the NFL and Jamaal Charles has been quite the fantasy football producer since his return putting up at least 8 points in every game with a high being 25. Anyway Austin Davis has emerged as a bright young talent for the Rams and people have even gone so far as to compare him with the great Kurt Warner whom was also an undrafted free agent when he first started in 1998 with the Rams. Davis has a lot of talent however he needs to show this talent when the game is on the line because he has made some very costly errors in the last couple of minutes in the game including a pick 6 against the San Francisco 49ers in which ended the game pretty much at 31-17. St. Louis Stats ...
I feel awful that the Orioles are down two games and have a very daunting task to advance; however, aside from the empty feeling of them losing -- I am much more aware that Kansas City right now is one heck of a great team that has everyone working together and contributing as one of those real together teams in the post season that develop a sense of being unstoppable sort of like the Ravens on the first Super Bowl advance. I'd certainly feel less upset losing to a small market team that like he Orioles are working off of character and team work than some Billionaire's fantasy team, those perennial always there teams like San Francisco or St. Louis, or worse teams like the Yankees or Red Sox. WE'RE NOT DONE YET -- REMEMBER THE Red Sox CAME BACK AND SCREWED THE YANKEES THEN WON THE World Series. WE CAN DO IT TOO!
There is hope. I believe. I'm not on the bandwagon, I am a lifelong fan. If you think a blowout is the end of a season, you don't know football. It happens. For those that don't remember a 40-8 loss by San Francisco that got Steve Young benched, that was a turning point and they won the Super Bowl. Tonight needs to be a turning point. Still 1 game back of the division lead, regardless of the score tonight.

My opinion: Top bandwagon NFL Teams 1. Pittsburgh (How can such a small city have a nationwide bandwagon?) 2. San Francisco (Started winning after years of being a laughingstock, all of the sudden they have a ton of "fans" again.) 3. Green Bay (Very loyal local fans, but if you're a Washington Native who roots for them over the Hawks, what the *** ) 4. Denver (number 18) 5. Dallas (called "America's Team" on a highlight reel- people think that's cool). 6. Oakland (I think people like them for the logo) 7. Chicago (Even people not old enough brag about the '85 Bears- c'mon it's been too long guys). 8. New Orleans (Won a Super Bowl after Katrina, a nationwide bandwagon was inevitable.) 9. Carolina (ever since they got Cam Newton you'd think they were the best team in the league with how loud their fans are). 10. Washington (So "loyal", most of their fans want to keep a racist name. Plus they think draft bust RG3 is an amazing QB).
Aldon Smith, the 49ers' outside linebacker and best pass rusher, was given a harsh nine-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy and its substance abuse policy, a big blow that will affect a San Francisco team with Super Bowl hopes.

Monday/Tuesday Previews: Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers 6:00am Well the 49ers first home preseason game at Levi's stadium is this week and it's a preview of the Week 7 Clash of the Titans, I honestly hope that the game lives up to expectations unlike the Super Bowl last season. Anyway the Ravens were too much for the 9ers last week and I couldn't really judge much from last week because Kaepernick only threw 1 pass for 17 yards with the drive ending in a field goal. Peyton Manning on the other hand looked in mid season form completing 10/13 for 78 yards. The one thing I look forward to seeing is Levi's stadium in action because it is a pretty neat stadium.

So we pick up our countdown at number 12. Joe Montana making his first appearance on this list. In 1989 the San Francisco 49ers have already established themselves as the team of the 80s. The nucleus of Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott Roger Craig and the great Jerry Rice were all still in tact. After their last second victory in the Super Bowl the year before Bill Walsh what are the greatest coaches in football history walked away from the game on top. Many people wondered if the loss of Bill Walsh would be the end of the San Francisco dynasty. But the 49ers Prestone hiring defense of coordinator George Seifert to run the show the 49ers also made several key moves in free agency. One of the main moves being the acquisition of linebacker Matt Millen from the Los Angeles Raiders. This was the move that would clearly keep the 49ers on top both defensively and offensively. And on the bench there was a star in the making a left handed quarterback from BYU who stepped in and played amazing football in the absence of t ...

Found this list of Super Bowl apperances by teams. I can understand why Ron Brown keeps shooting his mouth off bad mouthing the 49er's and the Cowboys.

Coach: Kaepernick has another gear espn.com news services | May 29, 2014 Colin Kaepernick already has a fairly stout NFL resume. But the way 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh sees it, the fourth-year quarterback is just getting started. "I really expect that real breakout year for Colin," Harbaugh said after the team's second OTA session Wednesday. "He just has the look and feel that he's going to break out, more so than he already has. I'm really excited about everything about his game right now." Kaepernick, a second-round draft choice out of Nevada in 2011, has taken San Francisco to back-to-back NFC Title Games and to its first Super Bowl since the 1994 season. This past season, the 49ers lost on the road to division rival and eventual Super Bowl Champion Seattle. To Harbaugh, however, Kaepernick's maturation in the 49ers' offense and the additions of receivers Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd spell bigger and better things to come. "I feel like we have a lot of firepower in our corner," Harbaugh said. "I feel ...
Rob Ford's crack use and antics are self-destructive and downright crazy, this is readily apparent. However, he pales in comparison to Stanley Wilson. Check out the struggles and challenges Wilson " Primarily used as a fullback, Wilson's career was marred by two suspensions for use of cocaine, which is banned by the NFL. He was forced to sit out the 1985 and 1987 seasons as a consequence. Inarguably, the most notorious instance of Wilson's relapse into cocaine usage was on the eve of Super Bowl XXIII, where the Bengals were to play the San Francisco 49ers. Wilson told several teammates that he needed to get his playbook before their last meeting prior to the game. Twenty minutes later, his position coach, Jim Anderson, found him in the bathroom, deep in the throes of a cocaine high. The Bengals had no choice but to leave him off the roster. Wilson's relapse was his third offense under the NFL's drug policy, and he was banned from the league for life. Smoking crack the night before the Super Bowl??? C'mon ...

Although Wilson’s nephew Russell is the Seahawks’ starting quarterback, Ben Wilson originally did not plan to attend the N.F.C. Championship Game on Sunday between Seattle and San Francisco. Then he had an epiphany: This was more than a Big Game; this was yet another signature moment for the Wilson family tree. “I woke up Thursday morning and said, ‘Man, you’d better be there, this may never happen again,’ ” Wilson said. “My brother would be there.” He was right. Russell Wilson wasn’t great but he was clutch, leading the Seahawks past the 49ers, 23-17, and into the Super Bowl. Ben Wilson’s younger brother Harry, Russell Wilson’s father, died too soon at 55 from complications of diabetes. Since his brother’s death in 2010, Ben has been part of a sprawling familial support network for Russell, Russell’s brother and a sister.

One of the greatest moments in Super Bowl history was when the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 20-16 in Super Bowl XXIII. The victory was secured when Joe Montana drove the team 92 yards with 3:10 left in game down 16-13.

NFL Network is showing Dynasty Week and celebrating the Cowboys through Sunday night this week. Televising Super Bowl games and Championship Games in their entirety! I watched the 1992 Championsip in San Francisco and Super Bowl XXVII last night. Those were the days!, make sure you all record or DVR these so you can watch them when you don't feel like watching next season's team losing games they should have won!!! Watching Jerry trying to horde the spotlight and grab the trophy away from Jimmy and walk around like he won the *** thing all by himself was priceless! He was a complete *** then too!!
Remembering that I'm the same guy that said the Falcons would go to the Super Bowl, I'll take Washington, St. Louis, and Los Angeles as NL division winners, San Francisco and Pittsburgh as the Wild Cards.

Who thinks there's a connection due to the steroids in the amount of violence and the attitudes and lifestyles of today's players?
It was an awesome week on the NFL network...dynasty week starring the 5 time Super Bowl Champion San Francisco 49ers.

Uncommon Life March 28, 2014 STAYING TRUE Cling to what is good. Romans 12:9 When I was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the San Francisco 49ers in my third year of professional football, I wasn't just changing teams; I was changing cultures. I left a relatively small, blue-collar city to go to a relatively large cosmopolitan area, and in the late 1970s, that new city offered more temptations than I had ever experienced. I felt out of place. Although I wanted to be accepted in San Francisco, I never really considered adopting any bad habits or using drugs. My beliefs and upbringing, as well as my athletic training, dictated against it. But I felt like an outsider because of that, and I wondered if people were watching me. I later discovered that some guys were watching me, but not because they thought I was strange. One of my teammates had gotten into the drug culture in San Francisco because he thought that was what pro athletes did. But because I had come from a Super Bowl team and didn't do drugs ...

At one point I was so fixated on a 87-yard kickoff return by Seahawk, Percy Harvin, that I left my iron ON TOP OF the binding. Fortunately I got the iron off before I burned the binding! To all of my Denver friends who were rooting for their Broncos, I'll root for your team any time they don't play Seattle (or San Francisco)!
Yesterday's Super Bowl, in which the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos 43-8, was not the most lopsided Super Bowl ever. That honor belongs to the 1990 edition, which the Broncos also lost—then to the San Francisco 49ers 55-10 (four years earlier the Chicago Bears defeated the New England Patriots 46-10 in the second-most lopsided championship). Nor were the Broncos the lowest-scoring Super Bowl loser ever: five teams scored just seven points and one, the hapless Minnesota Vikings in 1975, scored just six. But the Seahawks scored faster than any team previously had. They held the lead for all but the game's first twelve seconds, when a bad snap flew past Peyton Manning, Denver's quarterback, and into the back of the Broncos' end zone, where Knowshon Moreno was tackled for a safety. They had 36 points before Denver scored their first touchdown.
That Super Bowl may have been the worst one in recent memo ry - for anyone living outside the Pacific Northwest. But it did remind me that early on, nearly all Super Bowls were lopsided games. With the possible exception of the Buffalo Bills, Denver seems to enjoy embarrassing themselves in the Big Games more than anyone. And from the looks of it, they are just as skilled at getting hammered in Super Bowls now as they were when they bent over and spread 'em for the New York Giants 49-20 after the 1986 season. That may have been too much stank for most organizations, but not the Broncos. They went on to get waxed a couple more times, each loss getting just a bit more demoralizing. Go up 10-0 early against Washington then give up 42 unanswered points for yet another Super Bowl spanking. And who could ever forget the public castration administered by Joe Montana and the 49ers after the '99 season. Even today's beat down by Seattle pales in comparison to the 55-10 Dirty Sanchez that San Francisco served up. . ...
Super Bowl Memories Wasnt it great to see QB " Broadway" Joe Namath flip the coin to start the game?..The 70 year old legend..Hall of Fame Quarterback..who led the New York Jets to the biggest upset ever in a Super Bowl..16-7 over the Baltimore Colts..the Colts..who were 18 point favorites were beat by my first football idol..Joe Namath..I wore the Number 12 for ten years..never has one player "willed" his team to win like Namath did..I was nine years old at the time.. There is nothing like the Super Bowls..team dynasties come and go..from John Madden's Oakland Raiders..Tom Landry's Dallas Cowboys. Don Shula's Miami Dolphins..Chuck Noll's Pittsburgh Steelers..George Allen's Los Angeles Rams and Washington Redskins..Bud Grant's Minnesota Vikings..Bill Walsh's San Francisco 49ers..Jimmy Johnson's Dallas Cowboys..the Cowboys had 2dynasties..in the 70s and the early 90s..Bill Belichek's New England Patriots.. There are no more true dynasties in the NFL no more. With the way the NFL wants to favor the offense ...
2015 Super Bowl is in Glendale, AZ and 2016 Super Bowl is in San Francisco. If the New Orleans Saints make it to either, I WILL be there! I've been to a World Series Game (2007 in Denver) ... a Saints Super Bowl is next!
Why do we Like the Seattle Sea Hawks, simple, we Do not have a NFL Team in Alaska, Why Not? Again simple. In the most beautiful and by far biggest State of the Union their are less then 70.00 registered People living, our closed NFL Team is Seattle, after that we also like San Francisco and we have a lot of Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers Fans, The Beauty of NFL Football is like no other in the World, called Draft, unlike Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Bayern München, all the Italien Teams where Money buys ur Champions, in the NFL some can built the worst Team in to a Super Bowl winner, Look what Jimmy Johnson done with the Dallas Cowboys? remember the Washington Reds Skin? A system like no other in the World, That is why the Super Bowl is so exciting each Year.
This game is awful. I don't see how Seattle is dominating when they barely made it to the Super Bowl. They won in the last few seconds at Candlestick Park (their home field) vs San Francisco. Well, I'm pretty proud of my team now. Colin Kaepernick, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, Alex Smith & Frank Gore did pretty good against them!
I moved up to the Seattle area in 1979. I quickly became a Seahawks Fan. I grew up in California. Just outside San Francisco and Oakland. There as a little kid I experienced 3 World Series Championships by the Oakland A's in '72, '73', and '74. I also got to experience the Oakland Raiders win their first Super Bowl in 1977. I did not know how lucky of a run that was then. I do now. Seattle is far over do for greatness. This Team, this Franchise has come along ways. From the days of when as fans we were just glad we had a team in the game. That the fun we had was watching Jim Zorn run for his life behind a picket fence O-line and some how scramble and toss a pass to Steve Largent. Where our highlights where the trick plays that Jack Patera would toss out which made the game fun for us. Then we moved to calling the Kingdome "Fort Knox". Chuck Knox moved us from a pretender to a contender. Largent was still there making great plays but now we had a team around him on both sides of the ball. P ...
MY FIRST FIVE SUPER BOWL REMEMBRANCES. 1. First one. 1985. 49ers vs. Dolphins. Or, Montana vs. Marino. Joe got my allegiance then and I never looked back, though I did later meet Miami coach Don Shula, who was a fine and articulate gentleman. Final: S.F. 38-16 2. At a 1990 pizza parlor in Bend, Oregon, watching San Francisco thump Denver 55-10. Went to the bathroom, came back two minutes later, and Jerry Rice had scored yet again. Pyrotechnics. Poor mile high. 2b. 2004. Janet Jackson's malfunction. There was a game, but I remember almost nothing about it, except that it was a very good one. 3. The 1991 heartache of Buffalo kicker Scott Norwood's wide right 47-yard field goal attempt with eight seconds left to dash the Bills hopes against Jeff Hostetler's Giants as they lost the closest Super Bowl ever. 20-19. The first of Buffalo's four consecutive S.B. losses. Whitney Houson National Anthem; New Kids on the Block halftime show. 4. The 2000 heartache of Tennessee Titan wide receiver Kevin Dyson lunging fo ...
The 46 selectors met for a record 8 hours, 59 minutes, with Haley’s discussion taking 25 minutes. Discussion on Tony Dungy lasted 47 minutes, the longest of the day, with Brooks taking only 10 minutes. Haley made the cut to 10, but he, Jerome Bettis, Kevin Greene, Marvin Harrison and Will Shields were eliminated in the reduction to five. Morten Andersen, Tim Brown, Eddie DeBartolo Jr., Tony Dungy and John Lynch were eliminated from consideration in the first reduction ballot from 15 to 10. Haley, whose final retirement came following the 1999 season, has been eligible for enshrinement for 10 years. In that time, he has watched seven teammates inducted into the Hall Of Fame. It had seemed this might be Haley’s year. He remains the only player with five Super Bowl rings, winning two with the San Francisco 49ers and three with the Cowboys. Haley’s teams went 153-66, including 19-6 in the postseason. Only once in 12 regular seasons did his team have a losing record. That was in 1999 after he had retired ...
Charles Haley not in the Pro Football yet the overrated Michael Strahan gets in? Charles Haley won five Super Bowl rings with San Francisco and Dallas on some of the best teams ever and was an big part of their success. Michael Strahan lucked into one Super Bowl win with the Giant and probably got votes because he is on TV with Kelly Ripa now.
Richard Sherman and the death of sportsmanship Much of America’s senseless sports chatter leading up to the Super Bowl has centered around Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, which is pretty remarkable when you think about it. Sherman is among the best at his position and made a clutch defensive play at the key moment of last week’s NFC championship win over San Francisco, but no one really wants to talk about those elements of the game. The prevailing topic is sportsmanship, or lack thereof, and how Sherman fits into the “look at me” culture of the modern pro athlete, where individual motives and brand management supersede the sanctity of taking one for the team. Much of the hand-wringing stems from Sherman’s postgame interview with sideline reporter Erin Andrews, in which he denigrated 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree (whom he had deftly defended on the climactic play, leading to a Seattle interception) and shouted his greatness with unnerving emphasis into living rooms and bars across ...
( WORLDSWAGG ) Colin Kaepernick tossed aside political correctness and called Richard Sherman s behavior after Seattle beat San Francisco to advance to the Super Bowl ridiculous. Sherman broke up Kaepernick s pass intended for Michael Crabtree in the final seconds, leading to an interception by linebacker Malcolm Smith, which preserved the 23-17 Seahawks victory. Sherman ran over, tapped Crabtree on the backside and eventually made a choking gesture directed at Kaepernick. Then, in a postgame interview on Fox Sports, Sherman became even more heated. I m the best corner in the game! Sherman yelled. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that s the result you re gonna get. Don t you ever talk about me! Sherman then was asked who was talking about him. Crabtree, he said. Don t you open your mouth about the best, or I m gonna shut it for you real quick. To me, it was ridiculous, Kaepernick said of Sherman s rant. But if that s what you need to do to make yourself feel like a
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick talks to WSJ's Lee Hawkins about the Super Bowl, his failed attempt at a last-minute pass in the NFC Championship, his future, his brand, and the post-game comments by Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman.
In town to do some Super Bowl promotional work, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback talked with the New York Post and put Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman on blast for his behavior following the NFC Championship Game.

The Super Bowl is the most popular sporting event in the United States – almost 110 million Americans watched it in February 2013. So it’s not surprising that the Super Bowl ring is a matter of serious interest. As the game has grown in popularity, the rings have become fancier: more diamonds and gemstones, more complex designs, and a lot more “wow” factor. Consider the first ring made in 1966 that sported a single one-carat diamond. The Baltimore Ravens won the most recent Super Bowl ring in a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Minneapolis-based Jostens designed the ring. It has 129 round brilliant cut diamonds; the Baltimore Ravens logo is outlined with 40 round brilliant cut diamonds sitting atop a custom-cut amethyst stone. An iconic Baltimore “B,” handcrafted in yellow gold with the beak of the Raven in white gold, is in the center. The eye of the bird is red enamel. Jostens, a leading designer and producer of Championship Rings, has created 30 of the 46 Super Bowl rings. GIA ask ...

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has apologized a day after targeting the play of San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree with several harsh rebukes after Sunday night's NFC Championship win. Sherman's deflection of a pass intended for Crabtree in the end zone during the closing minute, which bounced into the grasp of Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith, sealed the 23-17 win over the visiting 49ers to earn Seattle a matchup with the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. "I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates ... That was not my intent," Sherman said Monday in a text message to ESPN's Ed Werder. Sherman also addressed his postgame comments in an interview Monday with ESPN Radio on the "SVP and Russillo" show. "Obviously I could have worded things better and could obviously have had a better reaction and done things differently," he said during the interview. "But it is what it is now, and people's reactions are what they are ...
Sherman didn't back down later. He apologized to Andrews, then proceeded to call Crabtree "mediocre," making sure to annunciate each syllable of the word. "I was making sure everybody knew Crabtree was a mediocre receiver," Sherman said. "And when you try the best corner in the game with a mediocre receiver that's what happens." It was a fiery, emotional rant from Sherman, who celebrated his first Super Bowl trip by racing around the field after quarterback Russell Wilson took the final knee. Sherman was rarely targeted by San Francisco, with most of the throws going toward Sherman's teammate Byron Maxwell. But when Kaepernick had to make a throw in the final seconds, he decided to challenge the All-Pro. Sherman stayed with Crabtree, leaped and batted the ball into the air with his left hand. That allowed Malcolm Smith to run underneath and make the interception that clinched the victory. "I knew if I tipped it high enough someone would get there," Sherman said. Sherman then ran over to Crabtree and gave ...
When sideline reporter Erin Andrews turned to Seattle's Richard Sherman minutes after he dealt the final blow to San Francisco's Super Bowl bid, he turned into a crazy person.
SPORTS: Congratulations to Collegiate Cougars grad Russell Wilson, heading to Super Bowl XLVIII with a 23-17 win over San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game. Seattle will face Denver, who beat New England 26-16 in the AFC Title Game today. It's the first-ever meeting between Wilson, who made his radio debut on Grover Jones Field on WHAN Radio back in the mid-2000's, and Manning, who will start his 3rd Super Bowl. When Manning was drafted overall by the Indianapolis Colts in 1998, Russell Wilson was only 9 years old.
Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers were knocked out by the Seattle Seahawks just one game shy of making it to the Super Bowl.
Gene Steratore and his crew are the worst officials I have ever seen. How on earth do you get to do the NFC Championship Game if you cannot even get simple calls right that I see high school officials get right every Friday night? What a joke for the NFL to have this incompetent baboon controlling who goes to the Super Bowl. I can't stand the 49ers or Harbaugh or Kaepernick but they don't deserve to lose a game by the hands of Gene and his goons. I'm sorry San Francisco fans that the NFL decided the worse crew in the NFL got to decide your fate.
The first seat at next month’s Super Bowl table has been reserved. Buoyed by a 32-for-43 performance from quarterback Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos denied Tom Brady a sixth opportunity to vie for the Lombardi Trophy with a 26-16 win over the New England Patriots in the AFC Title Game. In addition to completing almost 75 percent of his passes, Manning registered 400 yards through the air. The AFC’s No. 1 seed will contest either Seattle or San Francisco come Feb. 2 at Metlife Stadium.

F.N.N. Featured Columnist: Lucy Rendler-Kaplan The Toughest Battle Lies Ahead San Francisco 49ers Top Carolina Panthers 23-10 to Advance to NFC Championship Our San Francisco 49ers came out victorious Sunday facing the Carolina Panthers, just as was expected. Knowing this would be the outcome, it was still a great game. San Fran played like a Super Bowl worthy team as always, so let’s look ahead and talk about this Sunday’s game. Now it’s “onward” to Seattle to face the Seahawks, as Coach Harbaugh put it after Sunday’s win. This is the 49ers 15th appearance in an NFC Championship Game, and their third appearance in as many years. Kudos to Coach - Harbaugh has now been to the NFC Championship Game in each of his three seasons with San Francisco. He’s the first Head Coach in NFL history to reach the Conference Championship round in each of his first three seasons. We are down to the wire here – the winner of Sunday’s game is GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL! I have legitimate concern about this upc ...
Four NFL Teams play tomorrow for the Conference Championships. The NFC Championship will be San Francisco versus Seattle and the AFC Championship will be Denver versus New England. When it's all over, only two teams will be making the trip to the Super Bowl. Which two do you think it will be?
Join us tomorrow for the AFC and NFC Championship Games! First up we've got the New England Patriots v the Denver Broncos, followed by Seattle Seahawks v San Francisco 49ers! Which game are you most excited for? And which two teams do you think will face off in the Super Bowl??
I think it’s Denver in the AFC. They’re at home plus they’re just more talented. Plain and simple. I think the Pats have gone about as far as they can go this year. I just don’t see that secondary handling Peyton Manning. By the way Peyton’s legacy is established whether he wins this game or goes on to win the Super Bowl or not and the same for Tom Brady for that matter. They’re both Hall Of Famers so what’s the argument ? I see Seattle winning in the NFC because I don’t see the 49ers dealing with the noise. I think San Francisco is the better team in many ways too. After this weekend it will be two weeks of Super Bowl hype, but not from me!.Jack H.
Today is Friday, January 17, 2014 Today in Sports History 1916 - The Professional Golfers Association was formed in New York City. 1963 - Wilt Chamberlain (San Francisco Warriors) scored 67 points against Los Angeles. 1971 - Marvin Gaye sang the U.S. national anthem at Super Bowl V in Miami, FL. 1972 - Roger Staubach and Bob Griese appeared on the cover of TIME magazine. 1989 - Al Arbour won his 600th game as a coach in the NHL. 1995 - The Los Angeles Rams announced that they would be moving to St. Louis. 1996 - Steve Yzerman (Detroit Red Wings) became the 22nd player in NHL history to score 500 goals. 1999 - The Atlanta Falcons beat the Minnesota Vikings to advance to the Super Bowl for the first time in team history. 2002 - The city of Los Angeles had "Muhammad Ali Day."
Seems like Bob McNair is high on taking Clowney with our first pick. Could make our defense ridiculously awesome. But...there are reports his work ethic is not that great. The last time we did this was Mario Williams. He was good to start.but turned out to be average. That being said...the 2006 Draft had no QB's worth taking (Matt Leinart, Jay Cutler.). This year's draft has 3 QB's. And finally, look at the NFC this weekend. Both Seattle and San Francisco have crazy good defenses and QB's that aren't Peyton or Brady. One of these NFC teams will go to the Super Bowl without having a wide open offensive attack. Sooo.do we stick with Schaub and draft Clowney? Or...do we go with Bridgewater, or the guy from UCF (who creamed Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl)

So it’s Denver-Pats in AFC and Seattle-San Francisco in NFC. I think the end is near for the Pats. I can’t see them beating the Broncos in Denver and I don’t see them controlling Peyton either. I think Seattle beats San Francisco in the NFC. Main reason there is the home field advantage. I think Denver or Pats would beat Seattle in Super Bowl, but would lose to San Francisco. There is one winner and everybody else loses in pro sports, but you have to admit the Patriots have been remarkable this year. Getting to the final four is way better than they should be. Let me say that I think the 162 game suspension for AROD is way too harsh and I really don’t get any thrill from his problems at all. I have no dislike for him whatsoever. He is and has been a great player. What irritates me is the constant comparison to David Ortiz in the PED discussion. *** like John Sterling always point that out. Really? It’s not the same thing. AROD’s story is completely different. It has to do with Bio-genesis a .. ...
It was a trying season for everyone involved with the Atlanta Falcons. This goes from owner Arthur Blank, all the way down to it's fans. Coming into this season the Falcons had high hopes, they were coming off a season in which the were 10 yards from a Super Bowl, or a Harry Douglas trip, depending on how you look at it. Either way, they were the NFC's runner up. Most people saw the Falcons final two games against Seattle and San Francisco and thought if the team was so dominant through three quarters, their problem must have come from the lack of a legitimate running threat. However, the real problem was hidden, if by nothing more than luck.    In it's 2012-2013 campaign the Falcons managed to stay fairly healthy, they had a few injuries here and there, but outside of Brent Grimes, none were what football experts would call major. For the most part players who sustained injuries throughout the season came back weeks later. This past season was entirely different.    Before the season even really got ...
ALL I KNOW ABOUT THE 'CHEFS' Since 1970 (when they last won a Super Bowl), the CHEFS are a dreadful 3-13 in the playoffs. Two of those wins came in the 1993 campaign, making them an astonishing 1-13 in all other years. And THAT lone remaining win was against the RAIDERS in 1991. Meaning that all three victories took place under Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer. You know, the one who couldn’t win the Big Games. Nothing here to be proud of, really… An astounding fact: since 1970, EVERY SINGLE TEAM in the old AFC West has been to at least one Super Bowl. Except for the CHEFS, naturally. *** Denver has been to SIX, winning two! And Oakland/Los Angeles has been to three, winning two. (San Diego and Seattle made one appearance apiece; neither won.) Another astounding fact: Pittsburgh has won SIX Super Bowls since 1970; San Francisco has won five; Dallas has won four; New England has won three. *** the expansion Carolina Panthers went to one (they lost). And I’m not even counting the Tennesse ...

What We Learned from the NFL's 2013 Regular Season 8. The NFC West Is the Best Division in Football It was just a few short Years Ago (2010) that the Seattle Seahawks won the NFC West with a record of 7-9, prompting pundits to (correctly) call it the worst division in the history of football. Fast-forward just three years later, and there is no doubt that the NFC West is the best division in football. It's been a stunning turnaround. How did it happen? First, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider have done an exemplary job of roster-building in the salary-cap era. The depth on their roster is unprecedented, and the unearthing of diamond-in-the-rough quarterback Russell Wilson in the third round of the 2012 draft was nothing short of a franchise-altering event. Seattle went 13-3 this season and claimed home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Second, the San Francisco 49ers hired Coach Jim Harbaugh, who immediately fashioned the team into a Super Bowl contender. They reach ...
2014 Pro Bowl PLAYERS ANNOUNCED Pro Bowl KICKS OFF SUPER BOWL WEEK IN PRIMETIME ON NBC ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 26 The 2014 Pro Bowl, featuring a significantly revised format, will be played on Sunday, January 26, 2014 and televised live on NBC at 7:00 PM ET from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. For the first time, the Pro Bowl will be “unconferenced.” Gone is the familiar AFC vs. NFC match-up that has existed since 1971. Instead, players were selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players. The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers placed a league-best eight players each in the Pro Bowl, which will be held prior to the Super Bowl for the fifth consecutive year and serve as the signature kickoff event of Super Bowl week. The Pro Bowl players were determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counted one-third toward determining the 86 Pro Bowl selections announced today. Two additional “need” players will be chosen by each head co ...
Great win for the San Francisco 49ers. Farewell to Candlestick Park, which housed the greatest team of it's time, the greatest coach Bill Walsh and the greatest QB Joe Montana, a ton of history in that park including "The Catch" by Dwight Clark from Joe Montana to clinch the 1984 NFC Championship against the Rival Cowboys. Steve Young heroic Super Bowl year. And a ton of great games.
The legend of "Joe Cool",Joe Montana,began with the 1979 Cotton Bowl.Montana,suffering from the flu and under the watchful eye of my man Dan Devine,brought Notre Dame back from a 34-12 deficit to beat Houston,35-34,on a pass to Kris Haines.In the 1988 Super Bowl,the Cincinnati Bengals get a late score to take the lead on the 49ers.Bengals' coach,Sam Wyche,was wired for sound,and said,"Too much time,too much time".A little over three minutes,and Wyche knew the executioner wore in Niners' territory,Montana remarks to lineman Harris Barton,"Hey,H,look in that other endzone,there's John Candy." "Sure enough,there's Candy eating a bag of popcorn.On the game's biggest stage,history in the balance,Joe is pointing out John Candy to me." Montana drove his team down the field,hit John Taylor on the skinny post,and the San Francisco 49ers were once again Champions of the World.

Memories of Candlestick Park. Kezar Stadium was built for football, Seals Stadium for baseball, while Candlestick was built to seal the deal (Mayor Christopher/Horace Stoneham) that brought the New York Giants to San Francisco. The Good: For the 49ers, The "Catch"...the most consecutive 10 win seasons in NFL history...eventual Hall Of Famers, Dave Wilcox, Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, Jerry Rice, Fred Dean, Steve Young, Bill Walsh...5 Super Bowl trophies...tailgating and the Paul Potyen-led 49er Band. For the Giants, the 1962 and 1989 World Series (I went to the '89 Series game that the earthquake struck and the 'Stick held up.thank you.) The Bad: The 1962 and 1989 Giant's World Series (they lost). The "Fumble" (Preston Riley). The Ugly: Night time baseball games. The "Joe Thomas" years.

Atlanta vs San Francisco Candlestick Park 8:40pm EDT www.5star-sports.com & their the National Football League Monday night game covering countdown continues from the city by the bay @ Candlestick Park. As of Sunday afternoon the 10-4 San Francisco 49ers and 9-4-1 against the spread were listed as a hudge 14 point home team double digit favorite vs the 4-10 Atlanta Falcons who are 5-9 against the spread. The total is listed @ 46. San Francisco has played 6 games under & 8 games over the total this season while their counterpart, the Atlanta Falcons have soared over the number eight times going under in six. Of course, San Francisco appears to be peaking at the right time as a credible Super Bowl contender during the up & coming post season play. The 49ers have been a players bargain on Monday Night Football covering the spread in eight consecutive appearances.
If Rex Ryan is fired at the end of the season, the New York Jets are sure to have the following names on their radar: 1. Darrell Bevell, Seattle Seahawks, offensive coordinator: After five straight defensive-minded Head Coaches, the Jets figure to pick an offensive guy to oversee the rebuilding of that side of the ball. Bevell is an obvious candidate because he worked with general manager John Idzik, a former Seahawks executive. Bevell's stock has soared with Russell Wilson's rise to stardom. 2.

San Francisco 49ers finally defeat Seattle Seahawks -- 19-17 -- in a game at Candlestick Park. But Niners will have to be able to beat them in Seattle if they want to go back to Super Bowl:
Record: 12-4, first, AFC Central Points scored/allowed: 421/304 Coach: Forrest Gregg Summary: In yet another example of the imponderable karma of sports, Bill Walsh handed his old Cincinnati team a 21-3 regular-season loss Dec. 6 in a prelude to Super Bowl XVI. With a legend at the helm and a new uniform, the Bengals realized the promise their mid-’70s teams could not, sweeping the Steelers, then beating Buffalo and San Diego for a berth in the big dance. In round one of their two Super Bowl battles with San Francisco, the Bengals fell just shy of a ring thanks in good part to the Forty-Niners’ epic goal-line stand. Offense: 44 Offensive line: 21. Hall Of Famer Anthony Munoz’s 5 caps this gang of 4’s. Guard Dave Lapham (center 3) is the only J-4. Munoz also gets a 4 at end, while guard Max Montoya gets a 3 at OT. Best nickname goes to tackle William “Moon Pie” Wilson. Receivers: 11. Rookie Cris “Cadillac” Collinsworth hits the ground running as a 4, A and J-0 — ratings he shares with TE ...

Super Bowl Fact: Super Bowl XIX, which featured Pasadena High School’s very own Mario Clark, had 115.9 million viewers and was the first Super Bowl that ran television commercials for one million dollars a minute. It was the first time that then sitting President of the United States participated in the coin toss. Miami Dolphins 16 San Francisco 49ers 38. Mario Clark was the first Defensive Back from the San Gabriel Valley to be selected in the first round of the NFL draft (Buffalo Bills) in 1976. He attended the University of Oregon and played with the Bills between 1976 and 1983 before getting his NFL Championship Ring with the 49ers in 1984. Mr. Clarks legacy in the city of Pasadena predates his accomplishments on the football field. The Clark family is documented (and previously honored by the city) as one of the first black families that lived in the city when Pasadena was founded in 1886. Mr. Clark led the way for what Pasadena High alumni who also was selected in the first round as a defensiv ...
Did y'all know the Pittsburg Steelers has been one of the teams that has won most superbowls? They appeared 8 times and won 6 following them the Dallas Cowboys appearing 8 times and won 5 and then the San Francisco 49ers appearing 6 times and win 5. And the teams of having consecutive wins Greenbay Packers,Miami Dolphins, Pittsburg Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots. And the ONLY team to have most appearances in Super Bowl with NO loses Baltimore Ravens. The teams that have NEVER appeared in Super Bowl Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texan.
From the book, stories of the spread in its infancy in the Bay Area, not far from where Bill Walsh was stirring up goodness West Coast Offense-style: Walsh’s was a short passing game intelligently designed to exploit defensive weaknesses with a bombardment of offensive sets and precisely drawn pass routes whose tendencies were virtually impossible to detect prior to the snap. Walsh would have a variety of pass patterns that could be run out of a half-dozen or more offensive alignments so the defense never had a pre-snap read on the play that was coming. The system, later called the West Coast Offense when it delivered five Super Bowl trophies to the San Francisco 49ers, three on his watch and two under his disciple/lieutenant George Seifert, required a great deal of time and understanding on the part of everyone involved. It also made great use of two running backs as part of the pass patterns, as blockers and runners. Walsh’s offense was intricate, heady and required certain kinds of players for cert ...

"It’s maddening to think that any one of the four teams in the NFC East will play for a chance at a Super Bowl while teams like San Francisco, Carolina, Chicago, or even New Orleans could potentially not make the playoffs. We’d be better off watching Green Bay with a third-string Scott Tolzien at quarterback before watching Dallas and Tony Romo get punched in the mouth again." Yup, the NFC East *** deal with it.
The "experts" are nothing more than biased fans with college degrees. O State hasn't lost in two years, but the voters are still hating over '06 & '07. In the NFL, there is no "human element" whatsoever. If there was, then Mario would've never got his chance to make "the catch" in the Super Bowl because if the participants were based on votes, do the Giants make it over New Orleans, San Francisco, Green Bay, etc.? Of course not, and that's just in the NFC. Now, Stanford may jump Ohio State since they beat Oregon? I'm sure that the "experts" would love to magically forget that Stanford already lost to Utah. College football is nothing more than a bunch of "I told you so's." Once the Ohio States, Oregons, Baylors, etc. of the world lose, it's "I told you so." If Alabama (or even LSU in most years) loses, it's, "There, there. It's gonna be ok." Even Boise State beat Oklahoma when the Sooners had Adrian Peterson, but the Boise States of the world aren't given the same opportunities in college football ...

I recall in 1998 when the Atlanta Falcons made their Super Bowl run. I went to their playoff game when they played the San Francisco 49ers to watch my cousin Ruffin Hamilton play at the time. I got a chance to hang out with one of my idols. Linebacker Jesse Tuggle, we went to his house and he showed me that lovely home and he said " Hard Work will get you all the things desire, even if you not in the NFL" We walk in his workout room and being men, we instantly started challenging each other on the bench press. He put 405 lbs on there and at the time I could hit it 10-12 reps with no problem. I thought I won, he gets on there and he knock out about 15 reps with no problem. He says I am a vet and I know the tricks of the trade. He said if you are ever good enough to play in this league, this is how you keep your money. He said, Whatever i make a year, I spend 1/4 of it to live off and save the rest. If I make $800,000 a year, I tell my wife we can only spend $200,000 a year to live off. He said, ...
Today I talked with a neighbor who had been at the Nov. 9, 1940, Gopher game versus Michigan I wrote about where Bruce Smith took off on his legendary 80-yard run to help Minnesota keep its undefeated, no. 1-ranked season. Today I also enjoyed talking with Wayne Eddy on KYMN about Smith and about meeting former Oakland Raider linebacker Jeff Barnes in San Francisco who got his "first Super Bowl ring" playing against the Vikings in 1977. Jeff told me that Chuck Foreman was "hard to catch"!
YouTube was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim, who were all early employees of PayPal.[7] Hurley had studied design at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, while Chen and Karim studied computer science together at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.[8] According to a story that has often been repeated in the media, Hurley and Chen developed the idea for YouTube during the early months of 2005, after they had experienced difficulty sharing videos that had been shot at a dinner party at Chen's apartment in San Francisco. Karim did not attend the party and denied that it had occurred, while Chen commented that the idea that YouTube was founded after a dinner party "was probably very strengthened by marketing ideas around creating a story that was very digestible".[9] Karim said that the inspiration for YouTube came from Janet Jackson's role in the 2004 Super Bowl incident, when her breast was accidentally exposed during her performance. Karim could not easily find a video clip of ...
Record: 11-5, first, AFC West Points scored/allowed: 328/291 Coach: Marty Schottenheimer Summary: As we watch the current K.C. squad roll along at 8-0, we pay homage to the last Arrowhead team to make it a step from the Super Bowl. We were originally going to feature the 1988 Forty-Niners on the Oct. 30 anniversary of Steve Young's 49-yard TD run vs. the Vikings. But since we reported on that S.F. team Jan. 22, we’ll go off on a tangent that also honors another San Francisco icon: Joe Montana, in another costume if you will (hey, it’s Halloween Eve). Montana and crew were 6-2 on Nov. 8 after a pair of bye weeks. K.C. snuck past the Steelers 27-24 in the wild card and Houston 28-20 in the divisional round before stumbling in a 30-13 loss to Buffalo. Can the 2013 Chiefs make it farther? Offense: 36 Offensive line: 15. Pro Bowl 4-point LT John Alt (KB, PB) can only do so much to compensate for the 2 of fellow tackle Ricky Siglar. The interior is held down by 3’s: guards Dave Szott and rookie Will Shiel ...
Ok, don't feel down Seahawk fans. I was feeling down until I heard a couple of comments today on Sports Radio 710. First of all, how well would other teams do if they'd lost BOTH their left and right starting tackles. Most likely much worse and with many losses and down to their third string quarterback they were able to bring out of retirement, oh, Brett Favre. So, once we get our starting tackles back and playing, Seattle is going to peak at just the right time... Before they play San Francisco and New Orleans and onward to the Super Bowl Title...
It is January 20th, 2013, and the San Francisco 49ers are in the NationalFootball League's (NFL) NFC Championship Game. We are the away team,playing the Atlanta Falcons at the raucous Georgia Dome, and my 'Niners'have come all the way back from an early 17-0 deficit to take a 28-24lead in the 4th quarter.  The Falcons look stunned, but are piecingtogether one final drive. Both the Falcons and 49ers fans cringe as eachplay develops, punctuating each downs conclusion with howls of delightor screams of frustration. My 49ers just have to hold on and not allow atouchdown; a field goal will do the Falcons no good our defense isbending, but hasn't broken yet. The moment of truth arrives. 4th down and 4 yards to go from the Niners10-yard line, one minute left to play ­ it is do or die time for theFalcons. Their quarterback, Matt Ryan, drops back for a pass and surveysthe field.  He releases the ball, and for an agonizing second, it lookslike it will spiral to stud receiver Roddy White for a first down.  Then, ...
Premier League PREDICTIONS Ah, that's brings us nicely on to Mark Lawrenson and his weekly Premier League predictions. BBC Sport's football expert pits his wits against a different guest each week - sparking fierce debate across the country. Well, it does in our office anyway. This week Lawro takes on legendary NFL quarterback Joe Montana, who won the Super Bowl four times in the 1980s with the San Francisco 49ers. Montana tips Newcastle to see off Sunderland in the north east derby because he "likes their Brown Ale". You can't fault that logic.

  Hi, everyone, miss me? Now that the Falcons Shutdown is over with, the power rankings are back! Is it me, or is most of the league between 4-3 and 3-4? This week, I had to reorganize teams 17 to 26, as those teams are THAT close together!   Seattle Seahawks (Record: 6-1 / Last Week’s Ranking: – They are now 3-1 on the road, their one fault they have had last season. Impossible to beat at home, this team has everything going for them, except the offensive line. But just like Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson’s elusiveness keeps plays alive. Those Loveable Seahawks are now the Super Bowl favorite.   Denver Broncos (6-1 / – One loss does not mean a major plummet, but the defense has been horrible the past three weeks. Even the Jags moved the ball on them! The passing offense is the unit in the league and I am not ready to put KC over them….yet.   San Francisco 49’ers (5-2 / – They are back. I took some time this season to jell, but now they are on all cylinders. They moved the ball all over a ...
Since moving to the West Coast, my sports team allegiances have switched. In orfer, my NFL favorites are 1. Seattle S eahawks, 2. San Francisco 49ers, 3. Denver Broncos, 5. San D iego Chargers, 5. Oakland Raiders. In Texas, I was always more of a Houston fan than a Dallas fan, and that remains true, though it seems that what was supposed to be the Texans Super Bowl year is turning out to be a bust. I think Coach Kubiak's job isin danger.
Is Colin Kaepernick Held to a Different Standard Than Division Rival Russell Wilson? Yahoo Contributor Network By Vincent Frank Oct 11, 2013 11:43 AM COMMENTARY | Maybe it comes with being one of the youngest quarterbacks to lead his team to the Super Bowl. Maybe it's Colin Kaepernick's perceived mentality off the field. Heck, it could even be the way the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback holds himself on the field. Put it any which way, but it seems that the third-year quarterback is held to a much different standard than other young signal callers around the National Football League. From the Sporting News' well-documented attack on his character due to tattoos to Rick Reilly's questionable ESPN article on Kaepernick's relationship with his birth mother, it seems that he's a divisive figure around the media world. This has taken an even more elaborate turn with Kaepernick's struggles over the course of his last four games. During that span, the young quarterback has tallied 557 passing yards and three to ...
All the way back on January 8th 1989, my Brother and I watched our first NFL football game on TV. It was the 1988 AFC Championship Game. Buffalo vs Cincinnati for the right to go to Super Bowl XXIII. Boomer Esiason vs Jim Kelly. Bruce Smith vs Anthony Munoz. Thurman Thomas Vs Ickey Woods. In those days, it didn't get much better. Cincinnati won that day, on a memorable play where the Bills CB Derrick Burroughs punched WR Tim McGee in the face. And went on to play San Francisco in the Super Bowl. Perhaps it was destiny, or simple chance. We both choose our teams that day. My brother the Bengals, and myself the Bills. Since that day, The Bills and Bengals have played 11 times. Buffalo had won 10 in a row, until last season. When Cincinnati edged out the Bills with a 23-20 win. But today, we go to Orchard park, New York for the first time since 2007 to Renew the Rivalry! nothing left for me to say except.LET'S GO BUFFALO! (All time series: Regular season: Buffalo leads 15-10. postseason: Cincinnati leads 2- ...

Seattle and Indianapolis the teams to watch: Five things we learned from NFL Week 3 Seattle establish themselves as Super Bowl favourites Last week’s mauling of the 49ers might have established them as firm contenders for the title but Sunday’s brutal dispatching of the hapless Jaguars backed up their credentials. Often after a big win there is a slight come down opening the door for a major shock but Pete Carroll and the Seahawks saw to the Jaguars in a professional manner. Colts are for real If you didn’t think Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts had enough quality to threaten team this season you may have to think again. They dominated the San Francisco 49ers from beginning to end on Sunday night, the 27-7 score line was completely justified as the Colts controlled the ball and stifled the potentially dangerous 49ers offense. What was expected to be a close match up turned into a one sided affair. They will now look to battle Houston for the AFC South title. AFC East is going to be a wild ride ...
According to this asinine logic, the city of San Francisco should relinquish all five of their Super Bowl titles because Bill Walsh implemented the West Coast Offense, gaining an unfair advantage over unsuspecting opponents... What a ridiculous article.
Recently Joan and I were invited to charity dinner/concert. Darius Rucker (Hootie and the Blowfish) performed. We had the opportunity to mingle with some interesting celebrities; Virginia Tech Head Coach Frank Beamer, Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith (he is an ETSU grad.), Dallas Cowboys Tight End Jason Witten, former UT Head Coach/ETSU football operations coordinator Phil Fulmer, Dallas Cowboys Hall Of Famer Emit Smith, Miami Dolphins Hall Of Famer Dan Marino, Buffalo Bills Hall Of Famer Bruce Smith, San Francisco Hall Of Famer Jim Stuckey, Retired Charlotte Hornets guard Dell Curry. It was great to meet these guys and talk to each of them individually. Jim Stuckey has two Super Bowl rings at the expense of the Cincinnati Bengals and he really enjoyed talking to me about that. My favorite conversation was with Dell Curry he is easily the best shooter I ever had the opportunity to see in person.

Buying or Selling the Hype Surrounding Every NFL Team This Summer -- AFC WEST TEAMS -- Ann by Nick Kostos Now that the calendar has officially turned to July, the hype machine for every NFL team is in full effect as fans and media alike begin to craft a narrative for each squad as the 2013 season rapidly approaches. For some franchises, like the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons, the hype is positive, and for others, like the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets, well, not so much. It's time to examine the hype surrounding each NFL team, and whether to buy or sell that version of events: Denver Broncos The Denver Broncos are poised to be the team to beat in the AFC in 2013. Quarterback Peyton Manning leads a squad that is desperately looking to wash off the stink of a surprising one-and-done playoff performance in 2012, as the team lost to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Ravens at home in the divisional round. The roster is loaded, and the team added a new weapon for Manning in receiver Wes Welk ...
Football is my favorite sport but this is getting out of hand! It has been an awful offseason for the NFL. 27 active players have been arrested in total so far, most notably star New England Patriots Tight End Aaron Hernandez. Since the Super Bowl on February 3, NFL players have been arrested for common crimes like DUI and public intoxication, but also for things like street racing, child abuse, and trying to solicit a prostitute. Using the comprehensive databases of both Pro Football Talk and the San Diego Union Tribune, here’s the list of the 27 active players who have been arrested so far: Michael Boley, New York Giants (Feb. 8): Arrested for child abuse in Alabama Da’Quan Bowers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Feb. 18): Arrested for having a gun in his luggage at LaGuardia Airport, charges later reduced to disorderly conduct Al Netter, San Francisco 49ers (Feb. 22): Arrested for DUI in California Desmond Bryant, Cleveland Browns (Feb. 24): Arrested for criminal mischief in Miami J’Marcus Webb, Chicago Be ...

Nate Montana: WILL 49'ERS BE GETTING SON OF NFL LEGEND Hall of Fame Quarterback Joe Montana is a legend in San Francisco, The Guiding Light Of the San Francisco 49ers to 4 Super Bowl titles in his career. Montana was the definition of a champion, becoming a star instantaneously following a solid career at the University of Notre Dame. San Francisco will see another Montana throwing the pigskin around Santa Clara, Ca. on Wednesday. According to CSN Bay Area. Joe Montana's son Nate will workout in front of 49ers coaches and scouts. Nate Montana had a nomadic collegiate career as he spent time with 4 different football programs, starting at his father's Alma Mater and finishing at West Virginia Wesleyan. In his lone season as quarterback at Division II WV-Wesleyan, Montana threw for over 2,000 yards and totaled double figures in passing touchdowns. The 23-year-old competed in the NFL Regional Combine at Cowboys Stadium and received mixed reviews regarding his performance. Even though he did perform well du . ...
  Are you ready for some football?!  I know a small town in the state of Wisconsin certainly is.  the Green Bay Packers kickoff their 2013 season, at San Francisco, on September 8th.  “Opening day is always exciting” Coach Mike McCarthy said.  Well, when your opening day is going on the road, to face the team who was your biggest barrier to the Super Bowl, I could think of a few more adjectives to describe that day.  Some may say the 49ers were the Packers’ “Achille’s Heel” in 2012, when they squared off on opening day (ironic?) AND in the NFC Divisional, in which they fell victim to Colin Kaepernick and lost 45-31.  The Packers ended their season with an overall record of 12-6 (technically it should’ve been 13-5) because of the now famous Russell Wilson “Fail Mary”, in which Seattle stole a 14-12 victory in week three.  I’m sure Green Bay would like to get their revenge on the Seahawks this season, but they will have to settle for an August 23rd preseason game that will be tel ...
Mario Manningham 2014 NFL Free Agency Destination: New York Jets Another Super Bowl hero largely forgotten. That is the reality for Mario Manningham as he tries to work his way back from tearing the ACL and PCL in his knee. In his absence his roster spot has come under siege by an invasion of receiving talent that doesn’t figure to go away whenever he does get back on the field. Considering his contract is up in 2014 that could mean another trip into NFL free agency. If teams are willing to look past the recent health issues, where could the young receiver end up next? San Francisco 49ers seem content with A.J. Jenkins and Quinton Patton It really is unfortunate when one thinks about it. Not only did Manningham end the season with just one catch (which he fumbled) in a three-game span, but he injured his knee in the last game of the season before the San Francisco 49ers made their run to the Super Bowl. One of the reasons they signed him in the first place was because of his experience in how to w ...

BOSTON – The San Francisco Bay Area has been awarded Super Bowl L, the NFL announced during league meetings Tuesday. It will be the second time the area has hosted a Super Bowl. The game is scheduled for February 2016 at the San Francisco 49ers' new stadium in Santa Clara. Levi's Stadium will officially open in 2014 and reportedly is nearing the halfway point in its construction. The stadium is adjacent to the team's training complex. It is also next to Great America amusement park and across from the Santa Clara Convention Center. "It's an awesome, awesome thing that they've allowed us to host one of the biggest games; the golden anniversary in the Golden State," 49ers CEO Jed York said. "We're just really, really excited." Niners CEO Jed York reacts following the announcement of San Francisco's winning bid. (AP) The last time San Francisco hosted the Super Bowl was January 1985, when the game was played at Stanford Stadium between the 49ers and Miami Dolphins. The 49ers won that game, the second of th ...

Charles Woodson will receive quite a greeting from Oakland Raiders fans when he makes a free agent visit to the team's facilities on Tuesday. A few of his potential teammates in Oakland will give him a warm reception as well. Woodson spent his first eight NFL seasons with the Raiders after being selected with the fourth overall pick in 1998. He signed with Green Bay following the 2005 season and helped the Packers win a Super Bowl title five years later before being released by the team in February. He has said he would like to play for a contender and has visited a handful of teams since being let go by Green Bay -- including San Francisco and Denver. His agent, Carl Poston, has told ESPN's Josina Anderson that the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants have also expressed interest. Woodson and the Raiders have also had preliminary talks. At Broncos OTAs on Monday, cornerback Champ Bailey said he hopes his team finds a way to sign Woodson. "Who wouldn't want to have a guy like that on their team? I'm all ...
Record: 10-4, second, NFC East Points scored/allowed: 336/218 Coach: Tom Landry Summary: The pattern of 10-4 wild card teams of the ‘70s is something to behold — I sense a replay project. After two Super Bowl appearances, Dallas slips a game behind the archenemy Redskins. The ‘Boys spread out their losses — to Green Bay, Washington, San Francisco and the New York Giants — rather evenly during the season. Avenging their defeat by the Niners with a thrilling 30-28 divisional victory, the defending champs were handed a definitive 26-3 beatdown by George Allen’s Redskins in the conference title match at RFK on New Year’s Eve. Notably, the Cowboys scored fewer points than the 7-7 Jets (who totaled 367), as well as both participants in the Immaculate Reception (Steelers 343, Raiders 365) — but they still rightfully warrant a 40-plus offense.  Offense: 41 Offensive line: 21. Another staggering display of power and skill that should be rewarded in a matchup system. All-Pro guard John Niland and ...
Phil Dawson will kick San Francisco to the Super Bowl. And the Lombardi Trophy.
Football is a great game, but it's a cold-blooded business. The Baltimore Ravens were right to agree to deal Super Bowl hero Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers because sentiment should not dictate personnel decisions. I've already heard the move was a "steal" for the 49ers, but let's be real. The Ravens were ready to release Boldin and they still got something back for him. He was due $6 million in 2013. They set a price on Boldin, and they stuck to it. Was any team but the 49ers ready to pay him that much? Super Bowl Champions get off track when they get overly emotional. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome insisted he wouldn't make the mistake of trying to keep the band all together, like the Ravens did after their first World Championship. Boldin's epic playoff run will go down in Ravens history. But he's a player set to turn 33 years old and unlikely to ever play at that insanely high level again. His speed has deteriorated rapidly. More to the point: The Ravens have salary cap issues, and Boldin's allotted ...
BARGAIN HUNTING March 8, 2013 Seamus Smith Under GM Trent Baalke, the San Francisco 49ers are not inclined to throw money at free agents on the day the market opens. They tend to wait out the initial blitzkrieg, opting to look for good value in second and third tier players. Don’t expect the Niners to chase the likes of WR Mike Wallace, DE Cliff Avril, or CB Sean Smith, who will all be too costly to fit in line with the way Baalke likes to do business. There is absolutely no way he gets in a bidding war with teams with three or four times the available in cap room. Below are ten lower cost options hitting the market that would help the 49ers fill needs and get them back to the Super Bowl. TE Tony Fasano (Miami): If the team’s “swiss army knife” Delanie Walker heads for greener pastures, Fasano is a well-rounded and largely undervalued Tight End. He and Vernon Davis could absolutely tear defenses up underneath. DT Mike Devito (New York Jets): A true unsung member of Gang Green’s defense, Devito i ...
February 22nd, 2013 OFFSEASON OUTLOOK: San FranCISCO 49ERS Seamus Smith Following a strong second season under Jim Harbaugh and an NFC championship, the 49ers fell just short in the Super Bowl. What will San Francisco need to do this off-season to ensure a return performance on the big stage next year? PRIORITY TO RESIGN FS Dashon Goldson: Having been on the receiving end of the franchise tag last year, it will cost the Niners $7.45 million to apply it to Goldson again. Coming off consecutive Pro Bowl selections and still under 30, the hard-hitting safety is worth giving the security of a long-term contract he seeks. Although offered one a few years back (5yrs/$25m), Goldson is looking for money similar to what Eric Weddle received from the Chargers (5yrs/$40m). TE Delanie Walker: This back up Tight End could start for half the teams in the NFL. He is a quality all-round player, able to be utilizes not only at his natural position, but also as a HB, FB, RT, WR and on special teams. That’s the sort of ve ...

The New York Jets finished last season with a record of 6-10 due to a stagnant offense and similarly inconsistent defense. The injury to star cornerback Darrelle Revis definitely had an impact on the defense, yet quarterback Mark Sanchez and the Jets horrid offensive performances are among the chief reasons for the Jets' dismal season. As with every season, Rex Ryan sets high expectations for his Jets, but he should not expect a Super Bowl Championship like he has in the past. Here are three reasons why the New York Jets' 2013 season is already looking ugly. Darrelle Revis could be on his way out with the New York Jets. Revis' name has floated around as a potential suitor in San Francisco, although that destination now seems rather unlikely. The Jets have expressed uncertainty in their desire to trade Revis, but did shop him at the combine. According to Gary Myers of the New York Daily News: Now they will risk losing him for nothing if they don’t trade him by the Tuesday after the eighth game of the 201 ...

TIME FLIES !!! Can't believe it was 4 Years Ago this week that I first walked into Comcast SportsNet Bay Area here in San Francisco. It feels like yesterday & 100 Years Ago all together. Besides my fellow DC-FOX 5 boy Dave Benz, I didn't know anyone in the Bay Area, but would soon meet close to 120 new co-workers, all trying to remember each others names while figuring out how we were going to launch a new TV network in like 6 weeks. We've come a LOOONG way, it's been an amazing experience, made a lot of great friends(see the pictures, they're nuts !!!) & said goodbye to a few along the way. I've been very lucky to have been on the road with the Giants & A's at spring training twice, at the MLB All Star game in Anaheim, with the Giants on their magical World Series & parade run in 2010, with the A's on their crazy playoff run this past year & with the 49ers in New Orleans for the Super Bowl. And I got to see the NY Football Giants win the NFC Championship here last year. Check out the pictures, it's been ...
Colin Kaepernick Heading to Rochester for Day of Champions Dinner By: YNN Staff Colin Kaepernick will be the featured speaker at the Rochester Press-Radio Club’s Day of Champions Dinner. The quarterback helped guide the San Francisco 49ers to the team's first Super Bowl appearance in 18 years. They lost 34-31 against the Baltimore Ravens. The 25-year-old Kaepernick will receive the Coca-Cola Sports Personality of the Year Award at the dinner, held June 18th at the Riverside Convention Center. Since its inception in 1949, the Press-Radio Club has donated more than $1 million to Rochester charities.
Bengals Draft Talk Should the Bengals decide to trade down or out of the 1st round. The best trade partner appears to be, the old Super Bowl rivials, the San Francisco 49ers. They now have 14 picks in the 2013 NFL Draft after trading QB Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs. Thoughts?
From CBSSPorts.com: Somewhere, 49ers' general manager Trent Baalke could be doing the dance of joy. The 49ers reportedly have agreed to trade backup quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to CBS Sports Mike Freeman, for two second-round picks. The first of those -- No. 34 in the 2013 draft. The other is a second-rounder in 2014. That brings San Francisco's staggering total to 15 selections (about 6 percent of the entire seven-round pool), a level of flexibility we haven't seen in recent years, even at the height of Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli's draft trade wizardry. There are 15 spots available on the Super Bowl runner-up's roster. Coach Jim Harbaugh said "obviously, we'll be more active" in this draft during his stick-and-move sparring session with media at the combine based solely on the quantity of picks (SF had seven picks in 2012). Whether there is a move to be made in this draft or future years remains to be seen, but chasing upper-round selections in future years when they m ...
More than 100+ transactions and player rating adjustments went into this roster update - which focused primarily on removing players from IR and updating team depth charts for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, who squared off in a memorable Super Bowl XLVII. Baltimore QB and Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco saw his rating increase two more points to 93. The latest boost caps off a stirring postseason run by Flacco, who began the playoffs rated 87 but increased six points after throwing 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions in Baltimore's four wins. Jacoby Jones also saw a big-time increase, rising three points all the way to 81. Jones got behind the 49ers secondary in the second quarter on a 56-yard touchdown reception, and then opened up the second half with a 108-yard kick return to put the Ravens up 28-6. The return was the longest play in Super Bowl history. Despite falling short of the title in just his 10th career start, San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick received another one-point boost to incre ...
" You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust. ' " ---  Psalm 91: 1-2   The cover of the February 4, 2013 edition of Sports Illustrated featured a picture of Ray Lewis in a pool of water with his hands clasped as if in prayer.  The picture no doubt was designed to accompany the headline which read, “Does God Care Who Wins the Super Bowl?”   Following the Ravens’ playoff victory over the Indianapolis Colts, Lewis took off his jersey and displayed his undershirt with “Psalms 91” emblazoned across the front.  It appeared again after the Ravens’ Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.  A recent New York Times article (1-11-13) quoted Lewis saying, “For me, through the ups and downs, the roller coasters of 17 years, you have to find a safe place…You have to find that place that is very quiet in your head, and anytime I read it, anytime I come across it, my Bible, ...
Record: 14-2, first, NFC West Points scored/allowed: 353/239 Coach: George Seifert   Summary: The mighty Niners fall two points short of a shot at the elusive Super Bowl three-peat. The icons are aging: Joe Montana is 34, Ronnie Lott 31, and Roger Craig 30. Bill Walsh’s replacement gets close to his first ring but has to wait four more seasons after winning all but two games (vs. the Rams and Saints) and downing the Redskins in the divisional round, just as S.F. had in their Week 2 meeting. San Francisco rolled to a 10-0 record before falling to Los Angeles 28-17; the Niners got back on track the following week with a 7-3 victory over the Giants on MNF. Of course, New York turned the tables in the viciously contested NFC Title Game Jan. 20. Amazingly, the Giants held San Francisco to 240 total yards in both their 1990 meetings. These are APBA’s last San Francisco cards for Craig and Lott, who would become Raiders the following season. After his shoulder injury vs. the Giants in the NFC championship, ...
NFL trade rumors: Alex Smith trade market limited The San Francisco 49ers have a new starting quarterback named Colin Kaepernick who helped lead them to the Super Bowl this past season. However, while they would like to now pull off an Alex Smith trade, rotoworld reported on Feb. 13 that the trade market for Smith is "limited." While earlier rumors have the 49ers interested in a Percy Harvin trade, it doesn't look like Minnesota is interested in Alex Smith. Head Coach Leslie Frazier told ESPN that he was not going to bring in competition for Christian Ponder in 2013 and had faith in his quarterback. That eliminates another team that San Francisco could talk to for Smith's services. While Buffalo, Arizona and Cleveland could use an upgrade... ~SportsMan
In a city where everyone seems to be a San Francisco 49ers fan, supporting hometown hero and Super Bowl quarterback Colin Kaepernick, one man was wearing a Baltimore Ravens jersey Tuesday.
Rumor: Denver Broncos John Elway interested in trading for Darrelle Revis January 28th, 2013 by Rich Kurtzman Next article links NFL Next article › Credit: Getty Images Could Darrelle Revis become a Denver Bronco soon? Rumors say it could happen. It sounds like the Denver Broncos are looking for another monumental offseason in their search for a third Super Bowl. According to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, the senior NFL writer “gets the sense” Vice President of Football Operations John Elway will try to convince Broncos owner Pat Bowlen to land all-star cornerback Darrelle Revis. He added that the AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs and Super Bowl contending San Francisco 49ers could also be possible destinations for Revis, but that it's all speculation at this point. Revis signed a four-year $46 million dollar deal with the Jets in September of 2010, but neither side is happy at this point. The sixth-year shut-down cornerback – with 19 interceptions and three forced fumbles in his career – inj ...

Kick That Ball A local boy in the Super Bowl. There is a player on the San Francisco 49ers football team who just happens to be a local boy – Andy Lee of Westminster, SC. He played on the West-Oak High School football team just down the road from my house. He is a kicker on the 49ers team and wears jersey You can bet that the 49ers coach doesn’t say to Andy “boy go see if you can kick that ball”. No, no, rather the coach might say “Andy, you know what to do, go do it”. You see, Andy has probably kicked as many as 100 balls per day in practice sessions. So when he goes on the field, it’s just another kick for he has learned and practiced, studies the opposition and he knows without a doubt how to kick that ball. Now here is a spiritual application to this story. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us “For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. And then the last phrase of v. 13 refers to us searching for Go ...
Cary Williams not fined for fighting 49ers, shoving official in Super Bowl The NFL has made a ruling on cornerback Cary Williams' actions during the Super Bowl. Williams got in a fight with San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller, repeatedly punching him in the second quarter when players from both teams fought on the field. And Williams also shoved an official who tried to restrain him. Wiliams won't be fined for his actions, though, league spokesman Corry Rush told The Baltimore Sun.
Baltimore Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh and his brother, San Francisco head Coach Jim Harbaugh, have not spoken since Baltimore defeated San Francisco 34-31 in last Sunday's Super Bowl.

New Orleans Saints have Super Bowl talent to consider!! The good news for the Saints is that the Ravens and San Francisco 49er's has some talents they won't be able to keep them all. Because of they cap space the Ravens has 13 unrestricted free agents, 49er's has 10 unrestricted free agents. The New Orleans Saints could consider signing six players in free agency. (3) free agents from the Ravens: FS - Ed Reed, OLB - Paul Kruger, ILB - Dannell Ellerbe. (3) free agents from the 49er's: FS - Dashon Goldson, NT - Isaac Sopoaga, NT - Ricky Jean-Francois.

Colin Kaepernick had a decent Super Bowl statistically, with over 302 yards passing and 62 yards rushing on seven carries. However, even with those numbers it’s going to be a long offseason for the San Francisco 49ers quarterback after losing to the Baltimore Ravens.
Review & Photos: Two Gallants, Akron/Family, & Future Twin at The Fillmore, 2/2/13 February 07, 2013 at 01:24PM Two Gallants returned to The Fillmore last Saturday night for the first time since December 2008, marking a beautiful and emotional triumph following the band’s slow ascent out of the ashes left by their first six years, three studio records, and early nonstop touring. Playing for nearly two hours before a sold-out hometown crowd at the legendary San Francisco auditorium, band members Adam Stephens and Tyson Vogel appeared completely in sync and at ease, filling the room with their raucous brand of folk rock, thanking their families, friends, and fans for their continued support, and even joking with the crowd about the then-upcoming Super Bowl. Kicking things off with a dirty, ripping cover of bluesman Blind Willie McTell‘s “Dyin’ Crapshooter’s Blues” (which appeared as a bonus track on their most recent effort, 2012′s The Bloom & the Blight), Stephens and Vogel hinted that the ev ...

Just when I thought football season was over, I read an article that will help mend my wounds from the Super Bowl. "The National Football League today announced that the San Francisco 49ers will battle the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, England on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at historic Wembley Stadium. "
SQUIRT ALERT!! Finally! It’s Wednesday! I’m at the end of drinking 70oz of water today! That’s GREAT for me! Let’s go… San Francisco 49er Delanie Walker loss his aunt and uncle, Alice and Bryan Young, the morning after the Super Bowl. Apparently, they were killed in a car accident in New Orleans…the other vehicle was driven by a drunk driver. That driver, Necole Thomas, 26, walked away with minor injuries. Reports say the accident happened at 5:30am Monday when the couple were rear-ended at a “high rate of speed.” So sad. In other news… The US Postal Service announced that it plans to stop delivering mail on Saturdays, but it will continue delivering packages six days a week. This will begin in August and will mean a cost saving of $2 BILLION annually. Those clowns don’t get the mail to my house until after 5pm on Saturday anyway… Speaking of US Postal… In other news… An on-duty mailman was arrested on Monday after allegedly choking an 11 year old girl. Supposedly, the ...
Katharine Mcphee partied with San Francisco 49ers on eve of Super Bowl
It appears that the City of San Francisco is taking the 49'ers Super Bowl loss hard. I heard on the news that Candlestick Park, the home of the Niners, and one of the most reviled stadiums in baseball history, will be demolished after the '13 NFL season. In all seriousness, it appears that the Niners will be moving to a new (?) stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
lI'm feeling very well thanks for asking. My surgery went well the Seahawks did well in the playoffs although I still think they should have beaten Atlanta because I know they could've beaten San Francisco. The Super Bowl was good I was happy to see Colin Kapernick lose. I haven't forgiven him for knocking Boise State out of the Rose Bowl well him plus the fact that we couldn't kick a field goal. But all in all things are going well and thanks for asking.
Colin Kaepernick knows how to make the news. From opinion pieces on his many tattoos, to Super Bowl coverage, the 25-year-old NFL quarterback attracts major media attention. Kaepernick ascended to the coveted Super Bowl position when San Francisco 49’ers regular QB, Alex Smith, was injured mid-seaso...
Beyonce put on such an electrifying performance she used up all the power and blew out the lights at this year's Super Bowl in New Orleans! And Colin Kaepernick almost pulled off the most miraculous Super Bowl comeback in history for his team, the San Francisco 49ers! Unfortunately, his offense dropped too many passes, and his usually stalwart defense allowed too many passes to be caught! Moreover, Baltimore was a team of destiny!   2012 could be called the year of the black quarterback Black quarterbacks were the new breed, making most of the headlines, with players like Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III, aka RGdazzling the National Football League with their scrambling ability and foot speed, accurate passing skills and overall sterling play! Fulfilling the promise of all previous black quarterbacks who paved the way, from Marlin Briscoe and "Jefferson Street" Joe Gilliam, to James Harris, Randle Cunningham, Warren Moon, Donoban McNabb and Michael Vick! ...
THE SHERIFF’S VIEW Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald long The stadium lights are partially out in New Orleans, so what a better time to write my article then while taking a break from the Super Bowl. At this point I am sure that New Orleans law enforcement agencies are on standby as we watch the San Francisco 49ers take a beating. I somewhat find myself in disbelief due to already beginning week five as your Pulaski County sheriff. With most people time accelerates with age but certainly I have never experienced it passing at this speed. Where did my first month in office go? Maybe I should assign one of my detectives to help find it for me. Despite being very busy, I have to say that one of the highlights of last week was my first town hall meeting at the Senior Center in Dixon. Wow, what a great turnout! Our Dixonites continue to show great pride for their community. I do believe the head count was slightly over seventy, and on one of the coldest nights of the season. Among the major topics of conversati ...

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is as conservative as a blue blazer, gray slacks and black wing tips. It's time for a change. Garrett should try wearing Robert Graham shirt -- the more colorful the cuffs, the better --- and a pair of designer jeans from a consignment shop in the Bishop Arts district. For Garrett to keep his job as coach of the Dallas Cowboys for more than one more season, he must leave his comfort zone and the conservative approach he's used with the Cowboys and be bold next season. Understand, this ain't about trick plays. Or going for it on fourth down. It's about a mindset that shows his team winning is all that matters. Garrett must have the self-confidence and courage to make a bold move when the opportunity presents itself. That's the only way Garrett can remove this once-proud franchise from the muck of mediocrity. Garrett can look to each Super Bowl team for example. San Francisco Coach Jim Harbaugh benched Alex Smith, then the NFL's top-rated passer, for Colin Kaepernick, who ...
SUPERBOWL BLACKOUT UPDATE (Associated Press) The cause of a 34-minute blackout at the Super Bowl remains under investigation, but public records show that Superdome officials were worried about a power outage several months before the Big Game. An Oct. 15 memo released Monday by the Louisiana Stadium & Exposition District, which oversees the Superdome, says tests on the dome's electrical feeders showed they had "some decay and a chance of failure." The memo also says 2011 blackouts that struck Candlestick Park, where the San Francisco 49ers were playing a nationally televised Monday Night Football game, was one reason for ordering the tests. The state board later authorized spending nearly $1 million on Superdome improvements, including more than $600,000 for upgrading the dome's electrical feeder cable system.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams was lucky not to get kicked out of the Super Bowl for shoving an official. After the game, he was still upset -- at the San Francisco 49ers.

Football fans will have to wait until Sunday to see whether the Baltimore Ravens or San Francisco 49ers will emerge as Super Bowl Champions. But Baltimore’s residents can already claim victory over their Bay Area rivals in one important measure: generosity.
In 1971, Don Shula led an incredibly balanced Miami Dolphins to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for them, they lost to the Dallas Cowboys in a huge blowout. The final score was 24-3. The next year, the Miami Dolphins completed the first and only perfect season in NFL history. I think the San Francisco 49ers can do the same thing next season. A championship caliber roster who now has the anger and passion to get back and win the title.
Super Bowl XLVII: Brought to You by Solyndra "While the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers compete to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy this weekend, eco-friendly fans and city leaders in New Orleans are competing to maximize sustainability practices to the fullest," exults a U.S. Energy Department press release: To make this the greenest Super Bowl, the New Orleans Host Committee has partnered with fans and the community to offset energy use across the major Super Bowl venues. The exterior of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome features more than 26,000 LED lights on 96 full-color graphic display panels, designed to wash the building in a spectrum of animated colors, patterns and images. The system draws only 10 kilowatts of electricity--equivalent to the amount of energy used by a small home--and the lights are expected to last for many years before needing replacement. Off the football field, New Orleans is embracing energy efficiency with help from the Energy Department. The city retrofitted four librarie ...
I had a fun time watching a wild Super Bowl last night. I couldn't believe that Baltimore almost lost after being up by 22 points. I literally thought San Francisco was done but the way they came back was incredible. Too bad about the controversial no-calls on Goal-to- go situations at the end of the game! I thought the side judge and lines judge were horrible pretty much the whole game. They let San Francisco get away with some defensive holding but end the end, it was Baltimore who wasn't called for it! Life's a gamble and sometimes you have to roll the dice! I wonder if that thought was going through Jimmy Smith's mind when he was wrapping his arms around Michael Crabtree's waist?
San Francisco 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh criticized the officials for what he believed was a pivotal non-call in the final minutes of his team's Super Bowl loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
4,390 days after winning their first Lombardi Trophy, the Baltimore Ravens are once again Super Bowl Champions – leaving The Crescent City as 34-31 victors over the San Francisco 49ers. It is trite, and somewhat disrespectful to say this was the culmination of destiny. Calling it destiny makes it sound like a fairytale story of overachieving. As NFL Analysts looked at the Ravens this season (and even in the two-weeks building to the Super Bowl), it became fairly common to see commentary disregarding the talent on Baltimore’s roster. If those analysts thought the Ravens rankings in Total Offense (16th), and Total Defense (17th) was a true indication of the talent on the Baltimore roster; shame on them. The Ravens did not go on this run simply because they were galvanized behind Ray Lewis, and the end of Lewis’ Hall-of-Fame career. Baltimore went on this run because they got healthy, improved their offensive play-calling, and fixed their offensive line. The core of this team came into the Playoffs thi ...
I'm usually not much on conspiracy theories, but I'm starting to believe something is going on in the NFL. Ever since the Colts loss to the Saints in a game plagued with bad calls and obvious "no calls", and then the story was deemed a feel good story for New Orleans after Katrina, I've started seeing more evidence that the NFL is more concerned with the story of the Super Bowl than the game. Yesterdays game was another example of making a story more important than the game. Ray Lewis's last game in the NFL, and he goes out a winner, is the story. But if it wasn't for bad officiating in the game against Denver, Baltimore wouldn't have been in the Super Bowl. Then in the Big Game the officials blatantly decide the winner, come on! A no call on obvious pass interference that would have gave San Francisco a new set of downs on the 2 1/2 yard line for the win. Not to mention Cary Williams automatic ejection from the game for putting his hands on a referee, as well as the other half dozen, or more, unsportsman ...
What a very interesting Super Bowl. Kaepernick almost had my money though. Great achievement before ending your career Ray Lewis. Must say San Francisco did real good. But man! Jacoby Jones! Wow! Sean House remember what we were arguing about Collin Kaeperick? Wasn't I correct? Ha!
New Orleans -- Joe Flacco has just hit the "trifecta." He has won the Super Bowl. He was named the MVP of a 34-31 victory vs. the San Francisco 49ers. And he has a life-changing announcement to make to his family. It's 12:40 a.m., hours after the 47th AFC-NFC Championship Game, and Joe walks into Huck Finn's on Decatur St., a three-room French Quarter sports bar tucked away from raucous Bourbon Street. Tonight the bar hosts a private party for Joe's family and friends, 60 of them flown here at Joe's expense the week of the biggest game of his life. Wearing a long sleeve grey shirt, blue jeans and grey sneakers, Joe pushes open the door, grinning. The party cheers his arrival, and before he can hug his wife, Dana, chants of "M-V-P, M-V-P" fill the bar. Outside, Ravens fans in purple jerseys crouch and peer through the window panes as an unassuming bouncer stands guard at the door. Joe dishes out dozens of hugs, each female guest turning their face to the chest of the 6-foot-5 quarterback from New Jersey. J ...
