Jim Harbaugh is a jerk. Everyone knows this as well. From Pete Carroll, to Alex Smith, to the Lions Coaching Staff and many others he has rubbed the wrong way. But, Harbaugh is a winner. This is a guy that played from 1987 to 2000 which is a far cry to how long quarterbacks last in the league today. In all but 1987 his rookie season he started at least a game and in all about 1 season of that he started at least 5 games. He then becomes an assistant coach, then takes the University of San Diego to a 11-1 overall record, goes to Stanford and upends a program that was mediocre at best to a perennial powerhouse now beating USC on a regular basis. He didn't just help Stanford beat USC, he crushed USC on a regular basis and this includes being a 40 point underdog with a quarterback that was essentially not even on the roster and took them on the road to USC and wins that game Outright. What Harbaugh has accomplished is nothing short of phenomenal. Then he comes into the league in his first year with the Niners and leads them to the playoffs going 13-3 in the first year and the team currently is 11-4-1 this year and sits ready to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday after defeating the Falcons cutting a 17 point deficit. This team has a no-quit attitude. But, why talk so much about Harbaugh? Because this Niners team most valuable asset is Jim Harbaugh. This team would be nothing without him and this team is everything with him. From shoring up the defense, to bringing a veteran in Moss, to improving both the offensive and defensive line, to making the gutsy call to go with the Rookie Quarterback despite some ups and downs, all of it was Harbaugh pulling the strings. This team learned a lot from their loss to the Ravens 16-6 last year and look for the Niners to make the necessary changes. Harbaugh will lose to you once but very rarely does he not make the necessary changes the next time around. And the Niners play the role of an underdog very well. Sure, they are favored in this game and I wish they were not just for psychological reasons but note that this team still has a rookie quarterback and for the most part, this team is still the newcomer into playoff Football whereas the Ravens have been in the postseason on a regular basis for the past decade essentially. Although its seems obvious to think the veteran quarterback in Flacco will have the edge, I don't think so. Flacco will face a great deal of various pressures from the Niners defense and the offense San Fran runs will likely give the Ravens a great deal of trouble. Although they are stout defensively, this team does not handle the RGIII type of option run and pass well as evidenced to losing to the Redskins on the road earlier this year. The Ravens for as good as they are, they are aged a bit and the speed of San Fran could play an impact. Plus, I like the fact that San Fran started very slow against the Falcons as I don't see them starting out that slow this time around. I also like the Ravens to have a let down after essentially demolishing the Patriots 28-13 in what was a big revenge game from losing to the Patriots by a last second field goal last year. With most of the public being behind Baltimore in this game as well, this is a decent public fade as well. In the end, I trust in Jim Harbaugh, the variability that the Niners gameplan offers from the run/pass option which Baltimore will have to respect, I believe the Niners are more athletic up front both on the offense and defensive fronts and I think the Niners will benefit a lot from having already played the Ravens back in 2011 and scoring just 6 points on them and consequently will use that to their benefit this time around. I like the Niners 24-17 over the Ravens as Jim Harbaugh gets his first Super Bowl Ring at the expense of his brother. Sometimes Life just isn't fair.
