So if all goes well for Baltimore, I think Kaepernick will crumble against a tough and spirited Baltimore team that knows how to execute at the finish.
Prediction: Ravens 28, 49ers 23
I’ll be brief.
Predicting the winner of Super Bowl XLVII is pretty tough because both teams are great this year. This is definitely one of the better matchups in recent years.
Both teams are pretty evenly matched with good defenses and solid, young quarterbacks. I’ve decided it has to be the Ravens, though. Just a gut feeling.
Prediction: Ravens 20, 49ers 17
I don’t usually read anyone’s Super Bowl predictions before I write mine, but I need material because it’s getting late. If I don’t buzz Goble awake with a 3 a.m. email, he won’t have anything to write about next year.
So far, The Daily Star sports department has been relatively predictable with its predictions.
As usual, Centorani localized his story by making some incredibly obscure link to a player nobody’s heard about, then talked about golf, baseball and government spending. The only thing he left out was a reference to Ronald Reagan or JFK (which I edited out; you’re welcome).
Neagle, who is a diaper-changing machine these days, gave cheap pops to The Rock and the WWE … which he pretty much did in every article he ever wrote for us around the turn of the century. I think he actually Sharpies a raised eyebrow onto his baby girl’s forehead before putting her down for naps with the People’s Elbow.
Klein, who we traded to the Cooperstown Crier for a washing machine and future draft picks, opened with a geography lesson and later stated “no one believes David Akers is going to win a Super Bowl for the 49ers by making a big field goal.” I know Greg’s a hard worker, but it’s hard to believe he asked everybody in the world and they all got back to him by Thursday.
