It’s the fourth quarter and Colin Kaepernick just got diagnosed with a concussion after getting de-cleated by Ed Reed on a huge hit. The forgotten Alex Smith comes off the bench and leads the 49ers down the field and runs in for the go ahead touchdown. He runs to the corner of the endzone and throws up his bicep and “Kaepernicks” to the crowd. Then rips off his chinstrap and spikes his helmet on the ground like a football. Alex then walks off the field even though three minutes remain on the clock. Sweet payback for the benched quarterback.
Ok, thats Hollywood….but it would rock.
As much as I have a genuine dislike for the Ravens, the team fits my “more desperate” theory. During the season the team that loses always seems to bounce back the next week for a win. Also, the team playing for their playoff lives during the regular season, seem to get the win. More desperate, more effort.
Although the Ravens have not lost in weeks, they have lost the gift of time. The Ravens are getting older and some of their key players on both sides of the ball may realize this is their last chance at the title. If the Falcons defense can slow the 49ers down, watch the Ravens defense do an even better job of making the 49ers one dimensional. Hope the commercials are good!
