49ers Face Stiff Test to Win 6th Super BowlRandy Shawbyline‚ Feb. 01‚ 2013
The San Francisco 49ers take the field Sunday facing the toughest test in the teamís six Super Bowl appearances. While oddsmakers, Nate Silver and most pundits see a 49ers victory, the Ravens surprised the experts in beating Denver and New England and are viewed by many as a team of destiny. I saw a 49ers-Broncos Super Bowl prior to the season, and predicted the Ravens defeat of the Patriots in a game that became a rout. I disagree with Steve Young and others who see the Ravens as unable to stop the 49ers offense, and question Silverís assessment that the 49ers will win because they have the better defense. Here is my take on a game I do not recommend betting on.
