Awesome.
Also the guys at Yahoo have started to make their picks...

Both Mike Silver and Les Carpenter have picked the Ravens. The fans have picked us and Jason Cole's pick is pending.

Thank God, I was actually scared when I saw he had picked us a few days ago. We're saved!!
Don't have any scores, but from listening to various ESPN Radio personalities the past week it sounds like:
- SVP is taking the Ravens/ Ruessillo is taking the Niners
- Mike Lupica likes the Ravens
- Mike Wilbon is leaning towards the Ravens although he thinks it'll be a close game
Personally, I hope everybody picks against us.
27-17 Ravens
49ers 38
Ravens 21

Ravens is the sexy pick so that's what the media is running with. But all the stats say the 49ers by a mile. 49ers have an SRS of 10.2 to the Raven's 2.9

I say 49ers by 10.
Never fails for the Niners... When the majority of the media picks against them they win.

It's just like the Stanford Superbowl, everybody was picking the Dolphins even though the 49ers had a better record (15 - 1), a better defense, more talent and where virtually playing at home for the Superbowl...

We all know the outcome.

Not very good in their picks, are they?

Unlike most of the regular season, it seems the media tends to pick the underdog in the SB more often the at any other time

The exact same people also made the same picks for the packers game.
Has this come out yet? would be good to have a separate thread w/ his pool reports in here for us to discuss
somebody said the ravens are the sexy pick loloahahah have to disagree there. Imho im not sure how they are the underdog. i have watched the niners all season and have watched them play dispicable for no dawm reason and then have seen them play amazing. when i look at the ravens i see a team that has had it comming now for years. i look at them and i see a more mature US. defense, run game, and the deep ball. Its going to come down to offense and who will break more tackles. with that said.. the media doesnt know s**t..obviously. the (ray)vens may have god but we have good

ps no dis to the sexy picker commenter but i just dont like that term and i dont feel it fits the ravens because we are more sexy in all aspects
