to win the west and the bye that goes with it and then we would have one more game at candlestick park. if 9ers and seattle wins but the saints lose, then the 9ers clinch the fifth seed and they could still host another game at the candlestick park. it's a bit confusing. i know. coach harbaugh was asked about it and whether he will be doing a little door board watching on sunday -- scoreboard watching on sunday. >> too much at stake. too big of a game. i think somebody from the media asked me that last week. said no at that time. too many things can happen. too much at stake. all right. now last year, super bowl's mvp was in the christmas spirit. joe flacco of the baltimore ravens rocking his santa claus socks at practice. there he is. jolly old st. nick on his socks. not much more to say about it. the ravens by the way are 60-1 to win the super bowl. mainly because they still have not qualified for the playoffs and they likely won't.
