These teams have a real GM and a staff that's very good evaluating talent. The Vikes got Spielman The Destroyer and Deer In The Headlites Frazier. That's why their teams have a legit QB and the Vikes have Poser Ponder. That's why they are in the Super Bowl and the Vikes are 52 years and still counting with no hope in sight. Wilf needs to get a legit GM on board otherwise they are going nowhere.

Partskcoj showing his cluelessness again. It's been over a decade since either were at a SB, so past history has mothing to do with it, unless youre a packer fan resting on laurels. And let's see, who in the NFC north beat SF this year?

It should be Atlanta and not San Fran in the super bowl since it was apparent to everyone except the refs that on 4th down the Atlanta receiver was clearly held and it should have been a penalty against San Fran and then they would have scored the winning touchdown I truly believe this game was fixed.

This is one super bowl that I probably will not watch as I can't get excited about either team. Jim Harbaugh is an emotional college frat boy as evidenced by his tirade on the completed pass call toward the end of the game. John is the more controlled professional who I hope wins this game. Why is it that everyone has forgotten that Ray Lewis was once a significant suspect in a bar killing? One side note, two former Viking "bad boys" Randy Moss for SF and Bryant McKinney for the Ravens, one will win a SB ring!! Finally, best wishes to Matt Birk for the Ravens!!

The fix is in. Going into the weekend you could have guessed it was being setup for Harbaugh vs Harbaugh. And if the NFL stays true to script then the Ravens win to make sure their poster boy Ray Lewis gets a superbowl win. After all if you watch the games, the cameras only focus on one person. You would not know there were other players for the Ravens. 49ers don't have a celebrity like Lewis.

If ever there was an argument that not all people are born with equal abilities this is it. The odds of two brothers ending up coaching Super Bowl teams is astronomical - unless you accept that they have the unique set of genes and background required to achieve such a lofty goal. I know it is off topic but give up the effort to "close the gap" in public schools and provide the best education for each individual, not the same education for each individual.

As expected, I scour the national sports line wires and sites and very, very little being said about the booth review and so-called catch Harry Douglas made or did not make on that final Atlanta drive. I was as incensed as Harbaugh that after seeing clearly on the replays the entire ball hitting the ground and no way one hand was controlling it at that moment --- and yet the booth says "good catch." How in the world could they do that unless they were pressured or had an agenda?

Tuy - the reason you won't find much on that "catch" is because it did not matter in the end. Even with the catch the Falcons lost the game a few plays later. Sorry, I can't buy into a conspiracy.

Gopher, it's not conspiracy or no conspiracy that bothers me. It is INCOMPETENCY. At this high of a level with so much at stake and these USELESS judges can be that wrong???!!! Give me a break! You think Harbaugh was overacting?
