Admit it. Its a less than Super matchup

134 posts in this topic

.....The stories during Super week had mostly to do with scandals and that's largely because

the most appealing aspect of Baltimore vs. SF is two guys who arent playing..

Nobody's scalping tickets to this one no matter how hard ESPN and the NFL Net try to sell it..

....Most folks wouldnt watch a regular season game between Baltimore and SF so its hard to make two

defense oriented teams with no great QBs (or offensive players of any kind) on either side interesting.

at least IU plays Michigan Sunday

and 'hate' is a good reason to watch...

but both Harbaughs are dull as dirt....this shapes up as a sleep-inducing battle of 'challenged' offenses.

I highly doubt that.. Where is"the word" coming from?

There's a guy who does sports business reports on ESPN-Chicago,,Darren Rovell....he may be on other ESPN outlets..I dont know

That's exactly what he said.

By game time....face value...///This is not a big deal///SF and Balt are a long way from NOLA...

Now face value is something like $450....but this isnt somebody like Green Bay or Dallas or The NYGs..who have national followings..and there's no great storyline or confrontation...

I would rather it be the Colts than the Ravens, but I like Jim Harbaugh and Im rooting for him to win. I don't know why this super bowl would be any less appealing to fans than any other super bowl is. It's a good match up between 2 tough teams.

Baltimore has great old vets..

but they are the best team in the AFC....and they are the second best..or the 3rd best..

If you are addicted to football, you watch.....but this isnt a great matchup no matter how they hype it

Most? Really. The pro bowl had a 3.3 rating. The NFL draws big numbers. it could be the bills vrs buccs and people would show up to watch. I think you are off on this one.

Are you talking about her car commercial? Because she isn't even very hot IMO. I've seen better bodies on chics at Walmart quite honestly.

That was a pop culture reference...

The Stuporbowl  sponsored by Nyquil . Half time festivities will include - Jim Nabors & Manti Te'o's  GF  singing a duet  . While the Lawerence Welk orchestra plays Nazareths " Love Hurts "  with special guest dancers the Octomom & the Oct' ets . A ratings block buster , Of course the censors will have a quick trigger should there be any wardrobe malfuntions

Don't get ahead of yourself Mark, I didn't say I could ever get any of them, just that I've seen much better. It's just an opinion and a matter of taste.

You may not like the game marc, but the potential audience is billions, and I see absolutely no suggestion on any front that the general public is disappointed by this.

 

Personally I think that it's a great matchup, and I'm happy to root for the Ravens. In fact any year when the Patriots or Steelers aren't in it is a good year.

While I have no vested interest in either team... I think it may prove to be a really good game.

 

The Ravens seem determined to complete their mission,   and SF's young QB  Kaepernick appears to be

full of confidence, and unintimidated by the fact that he's  new to the Playoffs and SB. 

 

I'm looking forward to it..   :cheer:

Didn't you post at the beginning of the season saying you we're bored with football and was having a hard time watching it? Me thinks your just aren't a big football fan. I'm really looking forward to the matchup.

    • Yeah, my wife would agree with you. She wants to move to Gulf Shores Alabama. We vacation there from time to time. 
    • I am not sure Whitner would be beaten out by Geathers... Whitner has a solid career of playing at a high level.. Geathers has been a fill in and for me was our biggest single question mark in the secondary this year;  We'd be MUCH improved with Whitner on board and let the best player start.  I wouldn't count Whitner out on that battle.  
    • Fact: Castonzo was lousy last year by his own admission.   Fact: We have a rookie Center who hasn't had a single live practice yet.  How often do people talk about the reality that you can't really learn much from OTA's and No Pad Practices?  Fact: We had Reitz last year as well as Mewhort (one of my favorite players) but the line was still lousy anyway. Fact: Thornton has not performed to date and is injury prone.  And to even mention Harrison's name PROVES we are in deep trouble if he EVER sees the field again as a starter on the O Line because he was by far the worst player on our team who saw action last year on the O-Line.     Look, everyone could play amazingly and we could have the best line in NFL history.  But history suggests if 4 of the 5 starters come back from last year's terrible performing bunch AND the fifth is a rookie who hasn't played a down or even had a padded practice yet, it is hard to suggest we are improved over last year.  There is no evidence let alone proof.  You guys are all hoping these guys outperform what they did last year.  That's fine, but it means nothing until and unless they do it.  Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.   This is closer to that than a major upgrade to our O-Line.  I would have expected 3 new superior starters at C, RG and RT as compared to who started last year with a solid back up option at LT if Castonzo fails again this year.  THAT would be clear cut improvement.     Of course we all want the O-Line to play better.  I hope that Clark impresses and moves into a starting spot alongside Kelly who also impresses and kicks but.  THAT would be a start.  I also know a lot about Reitz.  He went to my high school and I am a fan.  But he's getting older and until recently was seen as depth, not starting level talent.  Reading about Kelly and all the accolades leaves me asking "based on what?" We'll learn a little during training camp and Pre-Season, but the truth will really only come in live action against Detroit.  It's just as legit to question whether we've improved as it is to say we have in fact already done so.  Let's have some hard evidence before saying "problem solved."
