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.

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.

Bookmakers mostly have the San Francisco 49ers as 5-point favorites over the Ravens in the Super Bowl, amid expectations this could be the heaviest bet title game ever because of a monster matchup that pits brother versus brother.
The NFC and AFC champions will be decided Sunday, with the 49ers facing the Falcons in Atlanta and the Ravens meeting the Patriots in Foxborough. Which two teams will advance to the Super Bowl?”
When you’re down in the Big Easy and craving some traditional cuisine or a cocktail to wet your pallet, do you really know the players you need to know for the trip to New Orleans?
