In the months leading up to the 48th installment of the Super Bowl, an incredible amount of attention will be paid to one team voyaging all the way from California. For this team, the trip to the Super Bowl is the last stop of a long and difficult journey. The season has been filled with challenges and the postseason has not been any easier. In one glorious day of football, the San Francisco 49ers will be looking to stake their claim to immortality and for them, that day is a culmination of more than a year’s worth of hard work and sacrifice.
The road to the Super Bowl began with defeat for the 49ers. After enduring a difficult loss in the previous year’s NFC title game, the 49ers were faced with the challenging prospect of surpassing that mark. Thus began one of the more intriguing and compelling football seasons any team has ever had. Prior to the start of the season, the 49ers were seen in certain circles as candidates for regression. They were earmarked for less success heading into the season and a return to the title game was being written of for them. No prediction could ever be more inaccurate, as the 49ers began to prove that they were more than just one-year wonders. They rolled through the regular season, even managing to clinch a first round bye heading into the postseason. Their first playoff game involved the Green Bay Packers and the team responded by putting up its most impressive offensive performance. The team routed the Packers and earned itself a return trip to the sight of the previous year’s most painful loss. The 49ers would learn from the mistakes of yesteryear and in this battle, they would be the ones that emerged victorious. The reward is a trip to the Super Bowl and there they will meet the Baltimore Ravens for the sport’s biggest prize.
The San Francisco 49ers would not have reached the Super Bowl if not for the many contributions of their players. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick was a mid-season replacement that ended up supplanting the incumbent at his position. His electric play at quarterback propelled the 49ers to several key victories over the course of both the regular and postseason. The other side of the team is being led by an equally terrific player. Linebacker Patrick Willis has been the most important member of the team’s defensive unit and he has only elevated his play as the games have grown larger in importance. Joined by Kaepernick and Willis, the rest of the team has also excelled over the course of the playoffs and now they head into the Super Bowl with full confidence that they will come out victorious.
Redemption is an overly used term in sports but in the case of the San Francisco 49ers, this season has been played with that very thing in mind. The team has already surpassed where it was a year ago and now the only thing left is to bring the Super Bowl trophy back home to San Francisco.
