Gameday: Super Bowl XLVII

Feb 3, 2013 at 12:01 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers return to the Super Bowl for the sixth time in franchise history and first time since 1994, as they travel to New Orleans to face the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII. The five-time Super Bowl champions (XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV, XXIX) look to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Super Bowl victories in NFL history.

Super Bowl XLVII marks the first time in history that the two clubs have met in the postseason. 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh will square off against his older brother, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, in the first Super Bowl in which sibling head coaches have faced one another and in each coach's first Super Bowl appearance.

The 49ers, who were the NFC's 2nd seed, earned a trip to the Super Bowl with a 28-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game, after trailing 17-0 in the first half. The 17-point comeback was the 2nd largest deficit overcome to win a conference championship (2006 - Indianapolis trailed New England by 18 points).


The Baltimore Ravens, who were the AFC's 4th seed, are coming off of a 28-13 win over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

Irvin: 49ers would win the Super Bowl 'every year' with Deshaun Watson

Hall of Fame wide receiver turned analyst Michael Irvin joins Bay Area radio every week to discuss all things football. So, of course, 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce had to ask Irvin about the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers adding a dynamic and exciting player like quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson is not happy with the Houston Texans, which has led to speculation that the quarterback could request a trade. Naturally, that means nearly every fanbase that feels Watson would be an upgrade over their team's current quarterback situation is creating online chatter about a trade. "I had already heard about all of the mess that was going on inside of Houston, but I thought no way, no way it would get to this place," Irvin told Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt

Last week, Steve Young said that he would be willing to entertain trading several first-round draft picks for Deshaun Watson if he were making the decisions for the San Francisco 49ers. "He is, no joke, one of the best quarterbacks in the league," Young said on KNBR. "... He is poised to be one of the generational greats, and he's already proven that he can handle it." Another Hall of Fame player and former Niner, Jerry Rice, joined 95.7 The Game on Monday
