I have gone round and round in trying to analyze and predict this Super Bowl.
It's hard because you have two teams that are mirrors of each other in style and not just because two brothers are on the opposing sides. Both have good defenses. Both can run the ball.
You have opposing quarterbacks who are both ready to jump into the spotlight that Super Bowl success provides.
It will come down to the little things, stuff that can't be measured on a spreadsheet.
I think the Ravens have the best defense and Joe Flacco is ready to break out. However, I'll go with the 49ers, 23-21, on a David Akers' field goal after a missed extra point because that's one of the weirdest things that can happen in a weird season.
I'll be tweeting regularly throughout the game @dmaclcd. All kinds of stuff from commercials to analysis to tacky thoughts. Check me out.
