That was dominant.

Here is what I saw in the first half of the Super Bowl.

-The Ravens were clearly the better prepared team. They came in with a better plan and they flat out out-executed the 49ers and that has led to a 21-6 (15 point) lead.

-Joe Flacco has already tied Joe Montanas records for most postseason TDs and most postseason TDs without a pick(both 11). Flacco was completely flawless going 13-20 for 192 yards and three scores(one to each Boldin, Jones and Pitta). Flacco would have four if not for an uncalled pass interference on a deep ball to Torrey Smith.

-That play by Jacoby Jones was one of the most exciting plays of the year. totally awesome.

– The 49ers lack of experience has shown big time. Colin Kaepernick has looked rattled for quite some time now and he has thrown some pretty iffy balls. The Ravens D has been stifling.

-My prediction for the second half, Torrey will make a catch of 35+ yards. Flacco will not throw a pick and will throw the aforementioned TD
