Stats of the Super Bowl No. 6: Two quarterbacks from FCS Delaware have started a Super Bowl -- Joe Flacco and Rich Gannon -- while no quarterback from Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas or USC ever has.

Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmm ....

Love this analysis of the endgame ...

Ravens leading 34-29, the Niners reach first-and-goal at Baltimore's 7 with 2:39 remaining, holding two timeouts. The Ravens' defense has already surrendered 466 yards. The Niners' previous four possession results: touchdown, touchdown, field goal, touchdown. Given the clock, the down-and-distance, the Ravens' age and exhaustion, the Niners' 6.3 yards per rush on the game -- the table is set for a San Francisco win.

But the Ravens have saved the best for last, and allow two yards, then force three consecutive incompletions. A moment later, a deliberate safety ices the Super Bowl. As sweet as it gets.

The downs:

• First-and-goal at the 7. LaMichael James up the middle for two yards. Gore just ran for 33 yards and has been repped out for a down. But what Baltimore's tired defense most fears, a Kaepernick sprint run, doesn't happen.

• Second-and-goal at the 5. Kaepernick rolls right, incompletion to Michael Crabtree running a "pin" to the right front corner of the end zone. Gore is back in the game as a blocker. He's on the left, and simply stands there watching, doing nothing. Once again the two things Baltimore worries about -- Gore or Kaepernick runs -- don't happen.

• Third-and-goal at the 5. Gore is taken out! This tells the Ravens they don't need to honor the rush. Crabtree runs a shallow out to the right, ruled incomplete (see more below). Again, no Kaepernick rush.

• Fourth-and-goal at the 5. A fade in the right corner to Crabtree falls incomplete as the Ravens blitzed six. The Niners had six blockers back. But Gore, lined up right as a blitz blocker, did not realize the overload was coming from the left. Weakside linebacker Danelle Ellerbe came through unblocked and hit Kaepernick on his hurried throw. Baltimore wins.

Think what's happened here. Three straight plays from the Baltimore 5: Kaepernick, one of the most dangerous players in the sport, has not rushed. Gore hasn't touched the ball. Three straight pass attempts to the same guy, Crabtree, and all three toward the right corner. Inexperienced right-handed quarterbacks are more comfortable throwing to their right. The Ravens' defense was expecting passes, and passes to the right -- just what San Francisco delivered.


The rule here is .... If you want to win the big game you dance with the one that brung you.

Colin and Frank got you to the big game ... but when you needed to win you didn't give them the ball.

Coaches fault?

I was wondering what other people thought about Moss' GOAT claim.

Glad to see I am not the only one who thinks he is a little off on his claim.

TMQ Analysis

Randy Moss is now 0-2 in the Super Bowl. Last week, Moss boasted of being "the greatest wide receiver ever." Yet he had just two catches versus the Ravens, and dogged it on rushing plays, often not bothering to block. Moss was open deep on the Niners' final drive, and Kaepernick didn't see him. But receivers often are open and not noticed by their quarterback, it's an occupational hazard. Kaepernick's second-quarter interception was intended for Moss, and the pass was high. But Moss did not try to knock the ball away from Ed Reed. Seeing the pass was high, Moss just stopped and stood there watching the interception, then stood there watching the return. What a punk.

Moss vanished in the Vikings' 1998 home NFC title-game loss; he vanished in Minnesota's epic 41-0 playoff destruction by the Giants in the 2000 championship game; he was held in check in New England's 2008 Super Bowl loss and vanished in the San Francisco's 2013 Super Bowl loss. Some greatest receiver. He wouldn't even make my top 10.

Amen Brother.

It is incredibly strange that he was able to restrain  himself all season. In the end he  is who he is !A pampas ass who got yet another break in the NFL and still can't appreciate it !

Best line by an analyst so far ....

Yeah yeah ... and we will ignore the offensive push off and the offensive interference on the other side of the field .... among many other calls that did not get made in the last 5 minutes of the game ..... just like every other Superbowl.

Holding like that happens every play and honestly is rarely called. Do we really want a Superbowl decided on a call like that?

The outcome should be fair to both parties. Reviewing a play in the last 2 minutes of the game should take place especially if the game is that close. If the game is out of hand then don't have the review. IMO

I've thought about the out come of the Superbowl, and either agree or disagree, the time out the 49ers burned late was the thing that got them beat. Had they not had to use it the run was still available. Having that TO left would have forced a punt with alot more time left on the clock. You could tell when Jim called it he was pained to no end...

Many compliment Harbaugh for his use of Keapernick, but had Smith been in there I believe whole heartedly the play gets off in time. Harbaugh may well win a Superbowl with this squad. Problem is there will be more and more tape of Colin and the 49ers.

 Who would know a coaches tendencies more than his own brother. Keapernick chit the bed not getting the play off and it ultimately cost them 1 more chance at victory. Add 30 seconds and the Ravens don't take the safety. Sure they might not have scored, but the way the 49ers had been moving I'd say it was better than 50/50 that late as much time as the Ravens defense was on the field in the second half.
