Jaws vs. Hoge: Picking Super Bowl winner
January, 21, 2013
By Mike Sando | ESPN.com
ESPN's Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge are taking opposite sides in picking the Baltimore-San Francisco winner in the Super Bowl.
As they spoke, my mind turned to the few players on each team with the raw athletic ability, notably speed, to make game-breaking plays.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, tight end Vernon Davis and possibly running back LaMichael James are three such players for San Francisco. Receiver Torrey Smith is one such player for Baltimore.
Jaworski is picking the Ravens based on how well Joe Flacco is playing. He'll be covered either way, however. Before Flacco got on a hot streak against Denver and New England, Jaworski cited Kaepernick as the reason he thought the 49ers would win it all.
