    Great game, shit half time (Kelly Rowland was nom nom though), bit of drama with the lights and Niners comeback.

    Ravens done just enough to win in the but San Francisco will feel they left it behind not getting a TD on their final drive

    Very smart clock play by Ravens in the end.

    When the lights went out, and then eventually came back on, it seemed like the 49ers were on the superman pills from the new Bourne Movie
    They were quicker, smarter and even seemed physically stronger. Took Baltimore the whole 3rd quarter to get back up to speed.

    Baltimore seemed to get themselves wound up over a call involving the restart and were overly distracted by it. Flacco was terrible when they came back out but pulled it out of the bag to get the 1st down that pretty much won them the game in the end.

    Flacco was terrible? Did we watch the same game? He was at no stage during the game terrible. Baltimore wouldn't have won without him. Flacco always been an average QB but the way he played in the play-offs was sheer amazing and never been seen before. Even broke Montana's record last night. I became a fan of him during the play-offs. Always cool, calm and collected. So fucking strong in the pocket as well. The only reason Baltimore even got to the Superbowl was him being awesome. The way he got them back in the game at the end of the 4th quarter against Denver with 2 clutch plays was sheer unbelievable. He outplayed both Peyton and Brady to get to the Superbowl.

    SF were disappointing and so was Kaepernick. No blame on him though, can't expect him to perform at such a stage. Was going to struggle eventually.

    Without the power outage Baltimore would have won the game by 30.

    He was terrible compared to how he played before the lights when out but then again so was the whole team. Guess it gets emphasised when the QB is on centre stage so much. That and the twice he got sacked after the restart looked avoidable. Maybe he's not the quickest in those situations. His opening to the game was phenomenal indeed and of course he pulled out of the fire when things were looking really ropey.

    He wasn't sacked twice after the restart. He was sacked once in the first quarter and then again in the third. The sack in the third he couldn't do anything about as there was a fuck-up from the offensive tackle. Flacco got completely blind-sided.

    You can't score on every single drive. If Rice fumbles the ball, Flacco can't do anything about that.

    I am sorry but I don't think Flacco and terrible are the words associated with each other when people talk about the Super Bowl.

    If you add to that his 3 TD's and 56% 3rd Down efficiency, it's pretty good

    I should know better to keep talking to someone when I have to quote myself but . . .

    When they came back out was what, 5 minutes? The time 49's ran in 15 pts?


    I do fail to see where I said he had a terrible game. In fact the quote above I referenced the point he rescued the game for the Ravens. I did think both sacks were after the lights came back on, my bad. But as much as you want to force your opinion through, that is mine.

    And I fail to see what Flacco has to do with the 49ers scoring 15 points. He wasn't on the field when they did that.

    I am just surprised that having to punt it once (and the punter kicking an absolute shit punt) and the RB fumbling the ball justifies calling the QB terrible during that period.

    It's like saying Messi was terrible at the start of the second half since he didn't score anymore after putting in 3 in the first half and the opponent got back into the game cuz Pique loses the ball at the box.

    And I fail to how see how you can't even contemplate anyone else's opinion on any topic when it differs from your own.


    Ok, I'll concede, my opinion is wrong, yours is right. You are now free to bathe in your own smugness. Enjoy




    Knew I shouldn't have bothered . . .

    when the lights were out Flacco was stood off to the side chatting, Iwas saying to my bro that he would go off the boil.

    The 49er QB never stopped throwing practice passes keeping his body nimble and his mind in the game.

    The CBS coverage kept saying 49ers had been through this before and it benfitted them, if anyone.

    Great show anyway, Superbowl Sunday will be a traditional event in my house from now on

    No need to sulk.


    I am not sure what you 2 expected Flacco to do after the break? Throw another 3 TD passes and Baltimore getting 60 points? Baltimore had one punt during that period and suddenly he goes off the boil? What was Kaepernick doing then? He was never even "on the boil"? If you watched Flacco a bit more often, you know that he is just like that. Always relaxed, no matter the situation. No need to run around and throw passes for 40 minutes in the dark. The guy ties the Play-off record with 10 TD and 0 INT, gets the MVP honour in the Superbowl in which he throws 3 TD and 0 INT, gets a passer rating of 124.2 in the Superbowl and I am reading him supposedly being terrible and going off the boil for parts of the third quarter.

    Just don't agree

    But each to their own. Everybody is entitled to their opinion.

    Something else, maybe we can have a forums fantasy league next season if a few more are interested. Or perhaps even go half in the game pass or so. Open to everything

    i wouldn't know enough about each player in each position etc to join in on that fantasy football stuff.

    the throwing passes keeping his arm warm clearly worked but anyway,

    what about thetying of the all time return record for 109 yards! Outstanding, great show the game was.

    CHARLOTTE, NC—CBS color commentator Dan Dierdorf provided detailed analysis of a player’s shoe falling off during the Jets-Panthers game Sunday, speaking on the subject for several minutes as he determined the factors that caused the cleat to become detached from the foot. “A shoe just popped off, right at the 25-yard line, and it’s still on the ground, lying motionless,” said Dierdorf, who methodically scrutinized several angles of the broadcast footage in slow motion, establishing “that guy’s shoe fell off during the play.” “Wow, unbelievable. If you look closely, it appears that a teammate stepped on his left heel and it comes loose. And the guy keeps going without a shoe.” At press time, Dierdorf was sharing an anecdote about a shoe falling off during his playing days with the St. Louis Cardinals as the Panthers scored a touchdown.

    The Bears self destructed yesterday and got spanked by the Eagles. When I saw the schedule at the start of the season I just know it would hinge on the last game against the Packers. Cutler is going to have to throw magic rainbows in the next game.

    Watched Packers/Steelers today from go to whoa, it had everything.

    Best thing were the conditions, freezing cold and snowing throughout.

    Ohhh, and an Aussie fake a punt and throwing for 30+ yards was awesome too.
