Niner Talk: Super Bowl XLVII

Posted by Taylor Price on February 1, 2013 – 2:15 PM

NEW ORLEANS – We’ve come full circle on the Niner Talk podcast on 49ers.com. Week 1 of the regular season featured Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Staley and now that the San Francisco 49ers have reached the franchise’s sixth Super Bowl, we’ve welcomed Staley back to the show.

Staley discussed a number of topics on this week’s show. The left tackle detailed the amazing meal he had Monday night with teammates as well his thoughts on this year’s American Idol, an admitted guilty pleasure for the offensive lineman. There was football talk, too. Staley said he’s looking forward to a rematch against the Baltimore Ravens who totaled nine sacks the last time they faced each other.

For the Super Bowl perspective, we welcomed Andrew Siciliano, the host of Total Access on NFL Network to hear his thoughts on his 13th Super Bowl, plus his takes on the local New Orleans cuisine and the keys to Sunday’s games for both teams.

Click here to listen to the Niner Talk podcast, which is also available on our 49ers Gameday live App.

Here are some of the highlights from both interviews.

JOE STALEY

[1:00 – Staley’s thoughts on the 49ers offensive line winning John Madden’s Most Valuable Protectors Award.]

“It’s a cool award, definitely honored, but the main award is the game on Sunday. That’s what we’re concerned about. It was definitely cool to be recognized. Any time you have team success, individuals get highlighted and we’ve had a lot of success the last two years. I think that’s why there’s more attention on our play and the players on this football team. We’ve always had talent, we just continue to work and do the things we can control and do everything we can for this game on Sunday. This is the big one, the one that we work for, so boom, tough actin’ Tinactin.”

 [11:30 – Staley’s thoughts on a second matchup against Baltimore’s pass rush.]

“We had a down game last year, but we’re a different offensive line this season, a different offense really. I’m sure they’re a different defense. Every season is a new season and they bring new challenges. We’re excited for this opportunity to play against them. I know, myself, I was always get up for these games where you get a second chance at an opponent. I had the game against Clay (Matthews) in the first game of the season where I didn’t play well, I was really excited for that game in the playoffs to have a chance to go against him again. I feel the same way about this game and this Super Bowl, a chance for our offensive line to redeem ourselves for the performance we put in against them last year.”

ANDREW SICILIANO

[14:00 – Siciliano’s thoughts on what makes New Orleans the best Super Bowl host city.]

“San Diego and New Orleans are flat-out the best. I wouldn’t care if we just went back-and-forth between those two. I know a lot of people would say Miami as well… New Orleans is just different for so many reasons. First of all, it’s a walking city. If you’re staying downtown you can pretty much go wherever you want to go. You’re not spending $50 to get in a cab to go somewhere, everything is down here. The food, the people, the culture, the music – New Orleans is quite possibly the most unique town in America. There’s nothing like New Orleans.”

 [23:00 – Siciliano’s storyline of the game to track at Super Bowl XLVII.]

“I think the Ravens are going to take their shots early, I think they’re going to try to get the ball downfield like the Falcons did. I think they might have some success doing that. This is more for me than just stopping Colin Kaepernick, I think a lot of it as well comes down to putting pressure on Joe Flacco. If Joe Flacco has time, he will make plays downfield. He has dangerous tight ends. Ray Rice out of the backfield is very dangerous. Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, that’s a good combination. If the Ravens can protect Joe Flacco, I don’t have a doubt he won’t be able to keep up with Colin Kaepernick… Don’t forget about Joe Flacco is what I’m saying.”

    Watch LMJ. Raven LBs can’t stop every threat and he’ll have some openings. D Walker will be open but can he catch?

    Can 49er Defense shut down the first burst of Raven offense? It’s in the Bag!
    The need to hold off the Ravens from a blitz attack in the first half, is the Key.
    After a solid Defense, first quarter and second, the 49ers can pick ‘em apart.
    Niner offense will score in the second half, and control the rest of Game. WIN.
    Go Super Niners!

    Hey I agree congrats and I know let the players decide, but how can they when the other team cheats and holds your reciever, NFL just lost a lifetime fan

    You can’t spot teams three touchdowns and expect to come back every time. Our team didn’t win the big one, but they still did us proud. Now it’s on to the draft and counting compensatory picks I believe we are going to have 14 picks.
    1,2,3,3,3,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,7,7. I foresee us taking the next two super bowls with a chance of a three peat.

    I am here. And I don’t need to say a word right now about why the 49ers lost.

    Congratulations to John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco.

    Great come back in the second half, however, niners lost because: 1. They got beat big time the entire first half. 2. Their secondary couldn’t defend anything.
    3. If you can’t punchi it in the endzone from the 5 yd line in 4 downs you don’t deserve the Lombardi Trophy. Niners didn’t deserve to win – Ravens flat out better team.

    incredible comeback, but really, is it that difficult to get the dang play off in the allotted time? kaep cost the 9ers another superbowl by another delay of game- really bad timing, and it’s not the first time we’ve seen this occur- put some hurry in it! they had it!

    The NFL needs to do a much better job at controlling the use of prohibited Lance Armstrong type drugs. I realize they help improve upon a player’s strength and endurance and help them heal much faster, but the long term affects of using them “will” have a major negative affect upon the player’s liver.

    Dyenny…have to agree, the last 4 downs inside the 5 and they run Frank once and I guess never thought about bringing in Dixon. I am not sure what they were thinking!!

    YOU HAVE TO ROLL KAPPERNICK OUT THE POCKET IF HE COULDNT RUN IT IN , HE WOULD HAVE CRABTREE, GORE, WALKER, VERNON, MOSS.

    Funny, did anyone complain about Jim Harbaugh’s coaching when Alex Smith was quarterbacking? Did Harbaugh forget how to coach once Colin Kaepernick started quarterbacking?

    I’m just saying.

    Defense were not ready to play…DBs were hopelessly outplayed and were unprepared to face Boldin during key downs. Despite this, the offense nearly brought them back….back for the poor play-calling on the final drive !!

    I just don’t understand why the refs never called crucial penalties, refs were allowing raven players to throw them around. And so many holding calls on huge plays, we’re flat out never called!!! 108 kick return, had so many holdings and clips. Safety punt at the end, when the opposite team is holding the whistle is automatically blown and safety awarded!!! Instead of letting the clock whine down. Very bad officiating the whole game! Also horrible play calling on the last drive!!! C’mon man! You have Gore, Vernon, Delanie, Kaepernick, why 3 plays all to Crabtree!!!
