The Oakland Raiders were one of the worst teams in the NFL (again) last year and the 49ers just jettisoned their best coach in at least a decade after one sub-par season. Now we have to watch two of the least-liked teams by locals vie for the big prize. How do we begin to care? It’s time to root for your favorite local guys to make the big play. Here’s a recap of who used to play ball in the Bay that could decide the Super Bowl come Sunday.
On the field “Beast Mode” roams free without any natural predators, but off of the gridiron Lynch and his “Beast Mode” nickname are preparing for a legal battle that they might not be able shake off.

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown, Russell Wilson threw a touchdown pass to rookie Paul Richardson, and the Seattle Seahawks knocked archrival San Francisco from playoff contention 17-7 Sunday.
