03:32 PM ET 01.28 | San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and his team are fully aware of San Francisco's rich Super Bowl history -- and how could they not be? The 49ers, thanks in large part to Joe Montana, are a perfect 5-0 in Super Bowls. San Francisco's most recent Super Bowl appearance came in Super Bowl XXIX, when Steve Young led San Francisco to a 49-26 blowout win. Talk about lofty standards to live up to.

Going to come down to Kaepernick and what he can do with the Baltimore defense. I don't see Flacco doing much with the 49ers D: the two teams are much alike in defense, although the edge goes to the Niners. Still, the intangible of Ray Lewis and all that could tip the scale. Good, really hard hitting game in the offing, though.

It sounds like it is feel sorry for me and my team going up against a giant, but it was 95 since they have won, and most of players on both teams were in elementary school back then.

No blowout of either team this year. Should be a well-played, close, tough game.

If the 49ers get behind in this game like they have been doing in the playoffs, they might not come back like they did the last two games, not against the Ravens.

I thought the score was 55 to 10??

Oops, that was the score of the 1990 SB!

My hope is that the Ravens discover their own Ron Sellers and Billy Parks.





That is going to be way too scatalogical for most here... but a few 49er fans will cringe at those references.

I expect a low scoring game.

I think it will be a low score at halftime but both teams find a way to score in the second half.

I hope the officials keep the flags in their pockets and let these teams play.

With that goober Jerome Boder as the Referee... I'm expecting plenty of penalties called.
