Yes this is the first time two brothers have ever squared off as head coaches in a Super Bowl, in fact it’s the first time head coaching brothers have ever met for a sports championship in any North American major sport.
One of the biggest Super Bowl storylines will be brother versus brother. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh will face each other in Super Bowl XLVII.
The Ravens have been the underdogs since the postseason started. No one outside the city of Baltimore predicted the Ravens to make it to the Super Bowl. Now that they’ve arrived, they will once again be the underdogs, but if this season is any indication, Baltimore has a great chance in pulling the upset.
This time, it will be different. That’s the mantra the Ravens and 49ers must carry into Sunday’s conference championships.
Mike Florio of the website Pro Football Talk and NBC Sports called into The Norris and Davis Show to talk about the Raven’s organized team activities, the Detroit Lion’s offseason, the Pro Bowl, Jim Harbaugh, and the Mike Wallace contract situation in Pittsburgh.
When addressing his 49ers players this week, Jim Harbaugh can point to the monumental miss in his 15-year NFL career: He came a Hail Mary short of making the Super Bowl.

The 4-7 Browns vs. the 8-3 Ravens. This one is a piece of cake, right? Not so fast.
The Harbaugh brothers met in the middle of the field, hugged, expressed their love for each other and headed off in opposite directions.
The Baltimore Ravens sacked Alex Smith nine times and beat the San Francisco 49ers 16-6 Thursday night, giving John Harbaugh an emotional charge in the first NFL game featuring brothers as opposing head coaches.
The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers have thrived this season because they are physical, relentless and combative. Just like their coaches.
