Morning Tailgate: Super Bowl L Update

Posted by Taylor Price on May 6, 2013 – 10:03 AM

The new Santa Clara Stadium remains a strong contender to host Super Bowl L. The future home of the 49ers, set to open in 2014, is one of two candidates to host the biggest game in professional sports at the conclusion of the 2016 season.

The San Francisco Super Bowl committee is up against South Florida to host Super Bowl L. The decision will come down to a vote from NFL owners on May 21.

After recent developments in South Florida, Santa Clara could be considered favorites to host the big game. Peter King of Sports Illustrated explained the reasoning in his Monday Morning Quarterback column.

“When the Florida legislature on Friday refused to allow the citizens of South Florida to vote on whether to increase the South Florida hotel tax from 6 to 7 percent, it put a huge damper on the chance for Super Bowl L to be held at Dolphins Stadium,” King wrote.

“The league had said the site very much needs the proposed $350 million stadium improvement. Owners are slated to vote for Super Bowls 50 and 51 at the spring meetings in Boston May 20-22. Super Bowl 50 was a battle between the San Francisco Bay Area and South Florida, with 51 likely headed to either Houston or the loser of the fight for 50.

“So, barring a late Hail Mary from Miami owner Stephen Ross, it’s likely Santa Clara (45 miles south of San Francisco) will get 50 and Houston 51. It would be the first Super Bowl in the Bay Area in 31 years, since the Joe Montana-Dan Marino faceoff in Palo Alto in January 1985.”

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com checked in with CEO Jed York after the latest new stadium development.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee explains why 49ers fans should be rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013 (Hint: it involves draft compensation).

    What likely happened

    Harbaugh: “Adam, you are to infiltrate the Cardinals’ organization and return in two years to divulge everything you have learned about our mortal enemies.”

    Snyder: “Yes, Lord Harbaugh.”

    (Present Day)

    Harbaugh: “Welcome back, Snyder. What have you lear-…uh, Adam, this report is two paragraphs long, double-spaced.”

    Snyder: “More than you probably need.”

    11yrs and ace because of our coaching staff Snyder is going to add a great deal of backup and he knows that , if one of our starters go down remember what happened in the Ravens game when he went down. both of you get a thumps down from me ……..

    that was a joke if you couldnt tell a know he can play all the oline positions for us already as a cheap backup incase someone gets hurt and to provide competion on the oline cuz there wasnt really anybody to push our guys, no i like the signing

    what i wonder more about is the signing of ronald curry as a coach

    “This is not a high profile hiring by any stretch, but it is an interesting one. Coach Harbaugh got his start in NFL coaching as an offensive asistant with the Oakland Raiders. He was with Oakland for the 2002 and 2003 seasons. The 2003 season happened to be Ronald Curry’s rookie year. Curry was converted to wide receiver, but given his quarterback roots, I have to think he and Harbaugh had a chance to connect on that level. That might explain the addition.”

    Would you settle for the second rounder if it were the 64th overall pick?

    The only way the Chiefs don’t go 8-8 is if they have issues on the line that result in Smith getting injured on a sack. The Chiefs line had a fair reputation, so I doubt that will be a problem.

    lets see how this trade plays out….alex smith an avg. qb for a 2nd round pick and a 3rd possiable a 2nd next year…..in 3 years lets see how good tank and the pick next year play and smith’s play…this could be right up there with the trade dallas did with vikings…walker to vikes for i think 6 maybe 8 picks we know of akiman,smith and irvin enough said…how’d walker and vikes make out? like i said enough said……this could be baalke’s greatest move..cuz not only the picks and free up cap money but they have a outstanding qb in colin kaepernick…..
