Posts Tagged ‘Super Bowl XLVII’

February 1, 2013

The Ravens thought highly of running back Bernard Pierce when they drafted him in the third round out of Temple.

But it was tough to expect then that he’d end up competing with franchise running back Ray Rice for carries by the end of the season.

“We liked him a lot,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “But I don’t think we thought he’d be this good of a player.”

Pierce did, however.

“I always thought that I could help out,” Pierce said. “I always thought that I could contribute in any way possible to help this team out and become a better player along the way.”

Pierce has come on strong down the stretch, giving the Ravens a stellar one-two punch out of the backfield. He’s an explosive running back with good power that fits perfectly in the team’s running scheme. And he’ll likely figure to be a big part of the Ravens’ offensive gameplan for Super Bowl XLVII.

“I call him a poor man’s Adrian Peterson,” Running Backs Coach Wilbert Montgomery said. “He’s better than Ray was when Ray was a rookie. He brings more power. He brings more pizzazz. He brings more explosion. Ray was a guy that could make you miss and make big plays. BP is a guy that can wear you down and make big plays. BP is a guy that gets stronger as the game goes on.”

Rice has still shouldered the bulk of the ball carrying duties in the postseason, rushing 64 times compared to Pierce’s 27 carries.

But when Pierce has been in the game, he’s shown big play potential and averaged 6.3 yards per carry compared to 3.9 for Rice.

“We’re very blessed and we’re lucky to have these guys,” Harbaugh said. “Bernard Pierce has just been a guy that’s lit it up for us this year. Their two styles kind of contrast perfectly. They’re different kinds of running backs.”

The challenge for the coaching staff is to determine how they split up the carries. Rice is still the starting back, but Pierce’s emergence has him pushing for opportunities to get on the field.

“It’s kind of like, ‘How do you manage these two guys?’” Montgomery said. “It’s hard to take Ray off the field.”

“Right now, Ray is at a good point. It’s about the team. That’s what we’ve been selling. We need both of those guys to play almost equal time right now so we can get this win. That’s all we’re looking for are those wins. Ray understands that.”

January 31, 2013                 9:30PM ET

The media throng awaiting San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver in the team hotel Thursday caught some teammates by surprise. Amazed looks crossed their faces as they arrived for the final full-team media session before Super Bowl XLVII.

The massive fallout from Culliver’s anti-gay remarks earlier in the week threatens to distract him from his work in the game Sunday. The fallout has already forced coach Jim Harbaugh and others in the organization to redirect resources toward a response plan. As Harbaugh suggested Thursday, the fallout could affect Culliver’s long-term standing on the team.

LZ Granderson of ESPN.com and Ray Ratto of CSNBayArea.com have offered strong takes on the subject.

Granderson criticized Culliver for “hiding behind statements co-authored by other people” after the 49ers issued the following prepared statement from Culliver:

“The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience.”

The statement was obviously prepared by public-relations professionals. The 49ers weren’t going to let Culliver issue his own statement. This was an initial attempt at damage control. Culliver will have to do much more of the work in the future to become credible.

Ratto suggests Culliver’s offending remarks resonated through the highest levels of the 49ers’ organization in a manner that threatens Culliver’s standing with the team. He points to the embarrassment team owner Jed York must have felt.

“As someone who has been on the forefront of anti-gay bullying action in the NFL, [York] had to spend his Thursday grappling with L’affaire Culliver rather than basking in the reflected glory of his team,” Ratto wrote.

Not quite two weeks ago, Culliver’s interception off Matt Ryan in the NFC Championship Game helped the 49ers defeat the Atlanta Falcons, 28-24. Afterward, Culliver excitedly explained how the 49ers had adjusted to the Falcons’ bunch formations after falling behind.

Culliver has played more than 75 percent of the 49ers’ defensive snaps in the playoffs. He’s a big part of the 49ers’ defensive plan against Baltimore and a bigger question mark moving forward.

1:10p.m. EST                January 30, 2013

Welcome to Super Sunday, Jerome Boger.

The NFL announced Wednesday that the ninth-year referee will work Super Bowl XLVII, Boger’s first.

“We congratulate Jerome and his entire crew on being assigned to work at Super Bowl XLVII,” said NFL Vice President of Officiating Carl Johnson in a statement.

“Just like the two competing teams, every member of this officiating crew has had an outstanding season and earned this honor. We are confident that they will have a great game on Sunday.”

Boger and his crew represent the highest-graded officials at their respective positions.

Boger, who has worked four playoff games in his career, entered the NFL in 2004. He will be joined by Darrell Jenkins (umpire), Steve Stelljes (head linesman), Byron Boston (line judge), Craig Wrolstad (field judge), Joe Larrew (side judge) and Dino Pganelli (back judge).

Boger’s most notable game of 2012 may have been his Dec. 23 contest between the Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers. Unhappy with a call, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton bumped the ref. Boger penalized the second-year player but did not eject him, believing there was no malicious intent on Newton’s part.

As with any Super Bowl, Boger and the NFL hope his crew keeps a low profile on game day, especially given the way the 2012 season was marred early on by replacement officials.

January 21, 2013

Since the start of the postseason, a lot of attention has been put on Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and his “last ride.” There is no doubt that Super Bowl XLVII will be the last game for Lewis, but can the same be said for another future Hall of Famer that will be on the opposite sideline?

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss has done just about everything there is for a receiver to do in the NFL, except for win a Super Bowl title. In Moss’ 14-year career, he has won Offensive Rookie of the Year, was named to seven Pro Bowls, was a five-time All-Pro, has played in three conference championship games, and will be participating in his second Super Bowl.

Moss came ever so close to the Lombardi Trophy on two occasions. In the 1998 season, as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, an overtime loss to the Atlanta Falcons prevented Moss and one of the best offenses in league history from playing for the world championship. Nine years later, Moss and the New England Patriots were on the verge of making history in Super Bowl XLII by finishing the entire season undefeated, but the New York Giants handed them their only loss of the year.

After leaving New England following Week 4 of the regular season in 2010, Moss went on to return to the Vikings, only to be waived by Minnesota four games later. The Tennessee Titans then claimed the veteran receiver and was a non-factor for the remainder of the year.

Prior to the 2011 season, Moss announced his retirement, only to return as a member of the 49ers in 2012. It’s apparently clear that Moss joined San Francisco simply because they had a great chance of winning a championship. It’s also evident that Moss is no longer the go-to guy he once was in the passing game. This regular season, Moss had only 28 catches for 434 yards and three touchdowns (the numbers of a typical role player).

If the 49ers do end up winning the Super Bowl, I think that it will be safe to say that Moss will take his ring and call it a career. He definitely doesn’t want to continue his career as the third or fourth option in an offense.

As mentioned before, Moss has done everything there is to do as a receiver. He’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and the only thing he needs to top off this stellar career is the opportunity to call himself a champion.

Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed swears he’ll be playing in 2013 regardless of what happens in Super Bowl XLVII. If not, he still plans to be on the field on Sundays.

Reed wants to coach after his playing days conclude, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome revealed Friday.

“Ed wants to be a coach, so he sees this as an opportunity to start his coaching career by helping those young players come along,” Newsome said, via USA Today’s Jim Corbett. “The thing about Ed is, he doesn’t just talk about it. He goes out and works the way you have to work to get it done.”

There should be plenty of opportunities for a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and former defensive player of the year. The Ravens would be an obvious fit, but there are former Ravens coaches throughout the professional and college ranks. Former defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, for example, is the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. He recruited Reed to play at the University of Miami.

“That’ll be up to Ed Reed,” Newsome said. “That will be something that (Ravens owner) Steve (Bisciotti) and I can talk about. But Ed still has a lot of football left to play. So we’ll cross that hurdle. If Ed decides he wants to do that, I think we can find a way.”

Beyoncé

October 17, 2012                6:53 AM EDT

Beyoncé must be looking forward to her upcoming performance at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show, because she updated her Tumblr and website with an up-close shot, showing off her football face paint marked “Feb 3” and “2013” under each eye. At this point, it’s almost a guarantee that when B hits the stage, fans are in for an unforgettable show.

But how can she outdo herself this time? MTV News came up with a wish list for when Beyoncé hits the gridiron in New Orleans.

Destiny’s Child Reunion
Fans have been begging for this reunion for years, with rumors surfacing every so often that Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are actually planning to release new music or get back on the road together. While none of it has proven true just yet, what better place to get the band back together than on the Super Bowl stage? For all involved parties, it would be less labor-intensive than planning an all-out tour, plus, no fans would be able to complain about missing the nationally televised performance.

Solange Knowles Cameo
Solange is known for being free-spirited and having her own shine outside of her big sister’s superstar shadow, but with a new album on the way (led by first single “Losing You”), a Solange cameo doesn’t seem too farfetched. Not only will it give her a chance to let a wider audience known she plans to drop an album soon, but she’ll also get to show America that Bey isn’t the only family member who can break it down on the dance floor.

Jay-Z Duet
Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been coupled up for a decade now, and while they try to keep the joint performances to a minimum — it was rumored that she would perform at her husband’s Made in America festival last month but remained a spectator instead — how could Hov, as a sports fanatic, possibly miss a chance to perform with his wife at one of the most-watched events on TV? He recently brought her to the stage in Brooklyn, and they definitely have the resources to whip up a new track specifically tailored to the Super Bowl festivities.

Debut a New Song
Just a few months after her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, was born, Beyoncé was reportedly back in the studio working on her fifth album. Not even a snippet of new music has been revealed just yet, but with Beyoncé’s work ethic, we’re sure that by February, she’ll have at least a few tracks in the bag. Can we get a preview during halftime, Bey?

New Orleans Tribute With Frank Ocean
Frank Ocean worked with Beyoncé on her most recent album, 4, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they were teaming up once again for her latest project. Super Bowl XLVII will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, a monumental event for the city that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Frank Ocean just so happens to be a native of New Orleans — he played his first solo show at the House of Blues in NOLA late last year — and it seems fitting that he should make a grand return to his hometown, after the successful release of his debut album, Channel Orange.
