Super Bowl 47 may be the final game for Ray Lewis, but the 49ers have several players who will approach the game with the same mentality. If Baltimore thinks that Ray Lewis’ dramatic return to the field will allow the Ravens to play at the level that has allowed them to get this far, they had better look to the other sideline and what the 49ers are playing for. San Francisco is the hungrier team and playing for far more than their opponent.
The Super Bowl is suppose to be the best two teams in the NFL battling for football supremacy as well as bragging rights. While there may be questions as to if the two best teams from each conference are playing, there is no denying the talented filling both rosters. In a game with so many Pro Bowlers on the field, it’s often an unlikely hero that can help swing the outcome of the game in their team’s favor. There are several players who can make a name for themselves on Super Bowl Sunday, but the player most likely to do so, is LaMichael James.
The San Francisco 49ers running back was fined $10,500 by the NFL on Wednesday after he wore his socks too low in Sunday’s NFC championship game at Atlanta, a uniform violation. It marked the second time he was fined this season.
In a game where the momentum switched hands several times, the 49ers were able to make one more play than the Falcons and will represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. San Francisco bounced back from a slow start, and in the end, outplayed the home team. The 49ers have earned themselves a trip to New Orleans, where they will look to reach the pinnacle of the sport.
When the New York Giants beat San Francisco last year in the NFC Championship Game, it was the 49ers’ inability to make a big play offensively that was a big reason for the loss. The team used the off season to address this problem, and as they find themselves one win away from the Super Bowl, the offense looks nothing like the one that let them down in this very game a year ago.

The match-up between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks will feature two teams in the same division that are almost identical in their formula for success. The last time they met it was a physical game that came down to the wire, and since then both teams have only gotten better. Sunday will determine if the Seahawks have caught up to the 49ers, or if they still are not quite on the level of the defending NFC West Champs.
The visiting Miami Dolphins knew that they would have their hands full against the San Francisco 49ers. The game was close for most of the day, but due to another strong defensive performance by San Francisco, aided by one big Miami mistake, the 49ers were able to outlast their opponent and remain the second seed in the NFC playoff picture.
Bruce Miller is a key to the 49ers rushing success but will get little attention as the fullback. A late-minute decision by both him and the 49ers are the reason he is probably in the NFL today, which is a good thing for both him and San Francisco.
Colin Kaepernick played well in his second career start, and the 49ers defense showed again that they are the best in the league. With Kaepernick again having a good performance the only question is who is the team going to use under center for the rest of the season and beyond?
Andy Lee choose the tough path of a NFL punter, and he has excelled at a position that gives little credit and a lot of blame. He has been a 49er since Day One and has played exceptionally well, especially as of late. He is one of the main reasons that San Francisco is considered one of the most complete teams in the NFL.
The Monday Night Game between the Cardinals and 49ers will go far in determining the eventual NFC West winner. Both teams are healthy for the most part, but the Cardinals have so many players banged up, that they will be in trouble if any injuries pop up in the course of the game. The biggest concern for Arizona will be the health of their quarterback who comes into the game already nicked up, and with an offensive line that has allowed the most in the NFL in sacks.
