Jan 29, 2013 at 1:43 PM--


The Super Bowl XLVII Media Day was held today at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and his players were asked a number of questions by the media in attendance.

Here are just a few topics that were touched by the 49ers during Media Day.

Wide receiver Randy Moss said that he would like to return for another season, but won't commit to the 49ers.

Moss also discussed his legacy, saying that he is "the greatest receiver to ever play the game." While admitting that this was a down year statistically for him, he more looks at the impact he has on the field.

Strong safety Donte Whitner said that the 49ers are still trying to iron out the kinks in the preparation for the Baltimore Ravens. He is confident that the team will be as prepared as they can once they hit the field on Sunday.

Tight end Vernon Davis said that he and quarterback Colin Kaepernick have built some chemistry. Last month, Davis said that it was a lack of chemistry with the new quarterback that caused his drop in production.

Quarterback Alex Smith touched on his future a little bit, saying that he is excited for his next opportunity ... wherever that comes. He wants to be an NFL starter again and many feel that the 49ers will try to trade him during the offseason.

Michael Crabtree discussed his rise in production with Colin Kaepernick at quarterback. While he was careful to to say anything negative about quarterback Alex Smith, he did say, "You can be the best receiver in the world. If you don't have a quarterback ... those talents won't be seen."

Head coach Jim Harbaugh even quoted some Shakespeare on Media Day when asked about his brother, saying "For he who sheds blood with me shall also be my brother," referring to his team.

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
