why are we being forced to "like" the Ravens???




Baltimore Ravens@Ravens

We're rolling out the scarlet for the @49ers... Glad to have you here!






i mean it's cool and all, but we JUST lost to this team in the SuperBowl a couple of years ago.... and some like myself felt it wasn't a fairly called game, but whatever.

now we have to be buddy buddy with them and spend the weekened? It's easy for them to be nice because they won the trophy...but I wonder if this weekend s**t would've been ok with them, if WE were the ones who won that SuperBowl. I very much doubt it.

I'm sure the 9er players are more professional than I am, but I would have to think some of them are wondering why this is needed.

there was one player (I forget who) on the Ravens who said he wanted to bring his ring to the practices to show the 9ers players...it was during the preseason telecast.....he probably won't, but I have to think when things get heated after a day or two, immature words will be thrown out and a few fights might break out.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Harbaugh's had something to do with this s**t!
I've got nothing against the ravens, I like their coach, despite Ray Rice's actions I enjoy watching him play, Haloti Ngata is a beast... etc

My experience with their fans at the super bowl was pleasant, they were a great fan base and I wish more of our fans were just as enthusiastic as them.

My only beef is with the refs, but even then we're only to blame for that loss, we allowed them to dominate the first half and thats on us. I dont care what anybody says about the final play, we should'nt have let it get to that point. Although the Ravens team was a really good team, I thought on paper we were a better team.

thats my 2 cents

You are talking about CB Jimmy Smith. You may remember his non called holding on Crabtree on the last play of the game.

Same dude by the way who threw one of our players into our sideline last night. After that Stevie Johnson wanted to punch him in the face. Vernon Davis held Stevie back.

$100 that there will be some incident involving Jimmy Smith in the next 3 days.

Agreed, but I guess little bro likes spending time with big bro.

It's good practice for Kap who needs to see as many different looks on D as he can. It's also good practice for our secondary so they can get some experience with both Kap and Flacco. And obviously the 2 coaches being brothers has a lot to do with it. So long as no one is injured I see it as a positive. We have a lot of guys in our secondary who need as much experience against different QB's as they can get and again, Kap needs the practice, he said so himself in an interview- that he enjoys the practive with different backfields/secondaries going against him.
I don't have anything against their organization, fans or players. But I find it odd, too; even with the Harbaugh connection.

Jimmy Smith comes off as an idiot, but Carey Williams (now on the Eagles) was the one who got away with one clearly. I still think teams should just have a player shove a ref in the middle of a dust up, if it's allowed in the Super Bowl, then why is it even a rule?
I do not dislike the Ravens. Well run/coached team.

I hold no ill will toward them. I don't necessarily like them, but then again I don't like any team not named 49ers.
Being from Baltimore, I actually like the Ravens.

....so long as they aren't playing the 49ers.
getting cuckolded by another team SMH
I believe next year they are playing a game here followed by some practices so we will probably do the same thing. It's a long trip for pre-season but if they can throw in like 2-3 practices against another team they figure it's worth it. As for the Ravens I always liked them minus Ray Lewis at the end of his career when he got to be a drama queen. I hate losing to them but I'd rather lose a SB to them (esp since they only won 1 other one) than NE or Pittsburgh. Side note: Is it me or is that our old helmet on the buffet bar? Just noticed it no big deal.

f**k the ravens!
It could be another calculated Jim Harbaugh move. By exposing the core leadership of the team to repeated references to the lost Lombardi over the better part of a week he's shoveling every pound of motivational coal on a fire that could be waning after three straight bitter disappointments.

Anyway, you don't have to like the Ravens to like the idea of our OL getting several reps against the Ravens DL. The next three days will make the team better.
Its good to have an ally. No one was complaining when they gave us boldin for a cheeseburger. That move saved our season.
