The San Francisco 49ers have obtained Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin in a trade, according to the Baltimore Sun and ESPN.
In the waning seconds of Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens leading the 49ers 34-31, quarterback Joe Flacco had an idea: if San Francisco return man Ted Ginn looked like he was going to take the ensuing kick for a game-deciding touchdown, Flacco suggested aloud to teammates to “go tackle him.”
It’s been nearly a month since the Baltimore Ravens outlasted the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. And while most of the NFL is looking ahead to free agency and the draft, at least two players from the big game are still reveling in what was and reeling from what could’ve been.
The company that supplied electricity to the Super Bowl took the blame Friday for the power outage that brought the big game to a halt, explaining that a device designed specifically to prevent a blackout failed and plunged the game into darkness for more than half an hour.
There were only seven penalties called in the Super Bowl Sunday, despite other obvious infractions. “Did someone see (a penalty) and not call it, or did the official not see it,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
“Right now they’re one of the best or the best offensive line in football,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
After a crushing loss in the Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers arrived at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport Monday afternoon to a hero’s welcome.
John Madden said he expected better efforts by both defenses in Baltimore’s 34-31 victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.
“You couldn’t ask for a greater game,” John Madden said of Super Bowl XLVII, won by the Baltimore Ravens over the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
After trailing in every game this post season, the 49ers magic finally ran out. It looked like they might be able to pull it off again, but ran into an opponent that was able to make one more big play than them. Super Bowl 47 was a thriller and came down to the wire, which is all fans can ask for. San Francisco will have to deal with the misery of losing so close to their goal, but this can only make the team stronger as they continue to grow and develop.
