The Ravens are business like when they need to be, but have a blast and let their personalties show when the time is right.

They are at ease with each other,very relaxed and comfortable, Quiet confidence. No one beating their own drum as the greatest. "TEAM" first,last and always. Ray's band of brothers playfully prepared and ready. GO RAY-vens!! CAN'T WAIT !! but I'm just a fan.

Two ways to see this...If we win, we had the better time both before, AND after. If we lose, we had a good time, and it will be said that we didn't take it serious enough. I don't think our guys lose anything by having fun. The 49ers aren't game planning during a media session,or a photo shoot, so as long as our guys are focused Sunday, it's all just more fodder for journalist.

Franchise Super Bowls are overrated. No one in the 49ers organization is left from the last Super Bowl team, and it's silly to say that the players and coaches know how to behave just based on the fact that the 49ers have won Super Bowls before.

The 49ers are businesslike because that's how Jim Harbaugh wants them to be, and the Ravens are laid back because that's how John Harbaugh wants them to be. It's just a function of team atmosphere.

I wouldn't worry too much fellow Ravens fans about the bloviating nonsense coming from the windbags trying to pass themselves off a legitimate reporters. The attempt to rattle the fellas, and by extension us, will fail miserably. When the R's capture that trophy they'll be the ones rattled while reporting same and eating a large helping of Raven's crow to boot. It's going to be fun to watch them trying to talk and eat at the same time.

Players business isn't media, leave it to the staff. Those medias sessions should be fun and chillin. As long, They don't say wrong things or something like that... Media time can be fun time, game time is the prime time.

Great to see the players have fun during the most stressful game of the year, testament to the way John handles the team, he and Jim maybe brothers but their polar opposites in personality, an obviously I prefer John's style

I think John Harbaugh continues to work to find that right balance between giving the players a degree of control in their own affairs with out letting the inmates run the asylum. I really think that the Cam thing was more about releasing some of the control from the coaching staff to the players, than it was about Xs and Os or play calling.

Other coaches rule with an iron fist and Jim seems like he's more on that side of the spectrum. With our veteran leadership, I think the degree of freedom our players are granted is a good thing.

Am I the only person who thinks it's bull that the 49ers get the Saints facility and we have a baseball field?

@ashleemarie.... The SB is being held in an NFC stadium so the home team is the 49ers. We are the "visiting" team so we get whatever is given. I really don't think it matters to our guys where they practice or play, they can take care of business wherever they are.

They have the baseball fields because of the renovation to the Tulane football field. Shame on Tulane for knowing the Super Bowl is being played in your town (for years), and you decide to completely overhaul the football field prior to the game.

Just from a personality stand point i'd much rather have John Harbaugh....Jim doesnt look like he has that much fun and he acts like a complete child on the sidlines when things dont go his way.
That first game at GB how he spit and gnashed his teeth after one call to the NFC Championship where he over dramatically flails his arms and slapped the field in protest is just ridiculous. You get away with it now, but when you're team starts losing its going to reflect very poorly on you
Obviously as a coach I cant complain with the results, he turned a talented but losing team into a very dominant and strong winning team.
Just saying he acts like a child and needs to grow up sometimes

I think Jim Harbaugh, unless he changes something, will burn out like Dick Vermeil.

I think a quote from Shakespeare's Henry V applies well to this year's Ravens team: "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. . . "

The NFL should have known this and made the adjustment for it. Totally unacceptable. Brian Billick said he would be LIVID.

That's good news. John has got his team excited and having fun when they should be. They are in the super bowl. All their hard work to get here paid off and now they just have to finish it off against the best team in the NFC. I just hope the Ravens don't have too much fun and get distracted from the game. But usually having fun with the team like this is a lot better than making your team soldiers. John is helping his team get the right mindset for Sunday.

So Joe's (agent) wants the money, Lewis never sniffed that dear antler crap and now Ed Reed wants to play for the most despised team in football. Oh yeh, and we have the third highest paid (under-performing) running back in NFL history! I dont care if that fits under the topic of discussion...I havent said anything since they won the championship. Why? I (was) content.
But I've grown increasingly discontent since then...Ray Lewis, I dont doubt you. Ray Rice... you're pissin me off...Pierce is much cheaper. Ed Reed....that one hurts. I figured you get a ring and be happy to retire. Not only is that wrong but you wanna move on to the Patriots!? You disgust me. Win this for the fans at least, then dismantle yourselves...go! ...some team that isnt nauseating.

Im glad they are relaxed, so am I! I didnt have a gripe this season and will approach this game the same way! The Ravens had to replace the restrictor plate meaning Cam Cameron and now the ride is even better and faster!

a31fan...just do not know what your problem is but you definately have one. Ravens are in SB and you should be happy. Stop the gripe and get with the program. Go Ravens.

I think the "playing field" should be equal for both teams not just the 49ers. Just goes to show how much respect our team gets. Go Ravens.
