Yes, these Harbaugh brothers sure know how to make the right move at the right time, no matter how risky or unorthodox it seems. The head coaches of the 49ers and Ravens both made significant in-season shake-ups to offenses that reached conference title games a year ago.
Whatever the odds, brother versus brother makes this a Super Bowl like no other. A sibling rivalry played out on one of the biggest stages in sports, and this time the loser doesn’t have to mow the front lawn.
The Ravens had a light practice Saturday, their last of the season before heading to New Orleans.
The two brothers who have led their National Football League teams to the Super Bowl this year are carrying on a family tradition of coaching that started with their father, and their parents couldn’t be prouder.
The San Francisco 49ers depart Sunday for New Orleans., a full week after their victory in the NFC Championship. Why two weeks between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl? “When you win the championship game, you immediately go into the ticket business, and you go into the hotel business and you go into the airline ticket business,” John Madden told the KCBS morning crew.
The Ravens came out of a three-game losing streak to make it to the big game in The Big Easy. December started off rough for the Ravens with consecutive losses to the Steelers, Redskins and Broncos. But as fate would have it, their lowest point became a turning point.
It’s the ultimate sibling rivalry when the Brothers Harbaugh and their teams, the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens throwdown in the Big Game. We ask, who is your favorite Coach Harbaugh?
There is work to be done to prepare for the Super Bowl, prepare for each other, prepare for a history-making day already being widely hyped as “Harbowl” or “Superbaugh” depending which nickname you prefer.
The Super Bowl will feature two super competitive head coaches who happen to be brothers, Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers and John Harbaugh of the Ravens.
During the 2011 regular season, the Harbaughs became the only brothers to coach against each other in any NFL game (the Ravens beat the 49ers 16-6 on Thanksgiving Day that year). Now they’ll be squaring off with a championship at stake in a Super Bowl
