Is there anyone offering up odds on whether or not Jim decks his brother in the face at any point before, during or after the game while still in NOLA?

I don't feel Flacco should have a ring, but am not overly thrilled with Kaepernick & our division rivals winning either. I'm not sure who I'm going to root for.

Personally, I was rooting for the Broncos or Patriots to make it to this SuperBowl.

Between the two teams that will appear in the SuperBowl, hopefully Baltimore pulls it off. it would be nice for Ray Lewis to get the trophy before his retirement starts.

Should Flacco be considered elite? It's a good question. Go back and look at the elite of the elite's road playoff win record.

I'm already tired of hearing about Ray Lewis, his retirement, and how his last game will be the Super Bowl. Even though the Niners beat my Bengals twice in the Super Bowl, I'll be cheering for them to beat Ray Lewis and the Ravens.

First tie Superb Owl ever!

Both teams get the flu. After the 9th overtime when the Jest and Iggles are called in as replacements, Roger Goodell starts throwing batteries at the players. Har bros start a fight that erupts into a city-wide riot. CBS pulls the plug and replaces the broadcast with "A Very Andy Rooney Christmas" repeat. No one notices because they stopped watching after the 7 O/T when replacement refs came back.

Flaccid is carried off to the hospital insisting he is an Elite Quarterback.

It's going to get ugly.

Has anyone that's not a Ravens fan ever been excited watching Flacco play?

I would also argue that his stats this year aren't exactly "elite" - 22 TDs in regular season, 10 picks, 238 yards per game (avg.)... etc.

I think Flacco is part of a very well rounded team and that helps make the most of his "above average" skills.

On the flip side, most play off wins is pretty legit. This is also his 5th season and they've been to the play offs every year, right?

Elite or not, the Ravens are a great team. Lewis was essentially nullified yesterday. The pats are going to have bad games like that until they can get a secondary.

I'm not a Ravens fan. Since much of the "elite" status is granted to those who win playoff games and Superbowls, Flacco enters in to the discussion. Where are the so called elite QBs right now? Sitting on their couches, out of the playoffs and not in the Superbowl. I agree, the Ravens are a well rounded team. I thought Flacco played like an elite QB on Sunday in a very big game. Maybe it's too early putting him there...maybe not.

Kaepernick is a better quarterback than Flacco.

Flacco is a solid NFL professional QB but certainly is not an elite QB. Like most QBs he has strengths and weaknesses. His biggest strength is his deep throw accuracy.

There are questions by many about his ability to win the big one and to play well under heavy pressure. However, the book is still open on him IMO in the category.

SF is a more talented team overall. But using their play most of this year and last years as their benchmark, their game performance became just a bit spotty during the second half season.

Their FG kicker is hurting and is a shadow of himself. That's potentially a real weaknesses.

I think it's pretty likely that happens.

I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I get the impression that Jim Harbaugh is a real prick.

After the playoff teams were set, I was rooting for the Broncos (because of Peyton) and Seahawks (because they used to suck so bad) to win.

I think he's close, but not there quite yet. It'd be a much easier question to answer after the SuperBowl though.

Rumor has it that the winning coach gets to give his brother a noogie, a wet-willie, and a rabbit punch when they meet mid-field after the game.

Only problem is he really hasn't proved himself over a period of years. Flacco has.

Kaepernick has a small track record. Flacco for how bad he plays some games he plays big in the playoffs.

I feel this game is really a toss up. Either team could really win it.

Watch Randy Moss explode out of nowhere. No one is talking about him.

I'll be pulling for the Niners/NFC, but the Ravens have beaten the wonderboy Luck, taken down Peyton in Denver, and Brady in Foxboro. I just don't see them losing to this Kaepernick kid making only his 9th? 10th? ever NFL start. Flacco at least has more experience. Yeah it's a team game and all, but the Ravens are rolling...

He was named MVP in Super Bowl XXXV when Baltimore beat the Giants.
