Although they lost the Super Bowl to the Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco learned a great deal from the game. They will use this as a learning experience and come back next year a better team because of it. The team did not reach their final goal, but continue to get closer, and will try next year to end the Lombardi Trophy drought.
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.
Colin Kaepernick got tripped up and tossed down, then still nearly led the greatest Super Bowl comeback in just his 10th career NFL start.
If the idea was simple, so was the way former Nevada coach Chris Ault went about mapping it out. White tape on the floor of the locker room. A rolled-up towel to simulate a football. And out of that came an offense that could win the San Francisco 49ers a Super Bowl.
The San Francisco 49ers completed their final on-field preparations for the Super Bowl on Saturday with a 15-minute walk-through under the Superdome lights before Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
NFL Hall of famers have a tendency to lean toward greatness and Dan Marino is no different. He’s particularly impressed with the play of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
If Crabtree and Kaepernick can pull off another outstanding outing in the game of their lives, they’ll take the podium together again for an entertaining back and forth of compliments and good-natured ribbing.
The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up their final practice before the Super Bowl a little early Friday, with coach Jim Harbaugh offering praise for the way Colin Kaepernick has handled the three days of work in New Orleans.
