The shadows of Joe Montana, Ronny Lott, Jerry Rice, and Bill Walsh will hover over this Super Bowl. Video reels of Joe Montana to Clark “The Catch” dominating the NFL network and ESPN airways.

Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots will look add fuel to the fire hiring old time friend Mike Singletary as defensive advisor (joke). As Tom Brady and the Patriots will look to make their 5th trip to the Super Bowl since 2002 and take away the one thing that makes the 49ers the NFL’s greatest franchise by blemishing their Super Bowl record. No question Bill Belichick and Tom Brady wants to be remembered as the best coach/QB tandem in NFL history.
