7 Reasons This 49ers Team Is Better Than the Baltimore Ravens

Expect a sixth Lombardi Trophy in the team's Santa Clara headquarters soon.

Lost in the hype of the "Har-Bowl" and all the soft-focus hysteria over Ray Lewis' final game, there is the small matter of the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens facing each other in less than two weeks for the NFL Championship.

Oddsmakers have installed the 49ers as three-point favorites in the game (to be fair, the line started out at four) and in the following slides you'll see why that point spread is flattering in the extreme to the AFC Champion Ravens. 

Sure, Baltimore has already pulled off a couple of staggering road upsets in beating the Denver Broncos in the divisional round and the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, but they're going to experience a similar sensation to what Silas the Opus Dei monk must have felt in The Da Vinci Code, when he discovered he'd been tricked, reading the Biblical verse "Hithero shalt thou come, but no further." 

The Ravens have beaten some good teams to get to the big game, but the 49ers are a different animal entirely.

They'll prove it on February 3rd and hoist their sixth Lombardi Trophy, winning 27-17.
