49ers' Keys to the Game for Super Bowl XLVII

Forget the 'Harbowl' hoopla or the Ray Lewis retirement bonanza, in Super Bowl XLVII, expect the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens to buckle down and put on a defensive show. 

Yes, the storylines are limitless, but the attention, as both Harbaugh brothers have attested to, should be on the players. 

From "Patriot Killer" Bernard Pollard, and double trouble safeties, Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner, expect a few hard hits. On second thought, expect a lot of hard hits. 

Both teams play an intimidating, in-your-face style of bully football not seen in today's age of the NFL. They play fast and angry, and are split images of their respective head coaches. 

While the offense won't be forgotten, and how could it be with the way quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick have played thus far in the postseason, I still expect the defense to carry one of these teams to the glorious Lombardi Trophy. 

Will the Niners prevail, or will the veteran heavy Ravens team once again hold up the trophy? We'll have to wait and see, though Sunday couldn't come any faster.

Without further ado, I present the 49ers' keys to the game for Super Bowl XLVII.

Side note: Prediction of Super Bowl XLVII at the end!
