Super Bowl LIV at Miami: Sabor Latino

That’s Amaury News and Commentary

Amaury Pi-González

The 54th version of the championship for the NFL title, will match the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers against the AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs.February 2, 2020 at Miami. This will be the first Super Bowl appearance for the 49ers since Superbowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens at the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome in New Orleans.

That was the only time a San Francisco team lost a Super Bowl. The 49ers won the Super Bowl in 1981 vs Cincinnati Bengals,1984 against Miami Dolphins at the Pontiac Silver Dome,Pontiac,Michigan,1988 vs Cincinnati Bengals at Miami,1989 against Denver Broncos in Louisiana and in 1994 when they defeated the San Diego Chargers in Miami.

I covered (on location) the 1981 and 1984 Super Bowls and the last time when they played and lost to the Baltimore Ravens as a reporter in San Francisco for Telemundo Network. Super Bowls are a weekly party for the host city and sometimes,with all the things happening prior to the game,the game itself becomes anti-climatic.

Among all cities in the United States with over 1 million in population, Miami is #Uno with 70 percent of Latinos. Miami’s total population is now reaching close to 3 million people. The NFL have planned this “Sabor Latino” (Latin Flavor) Super Bowl with a spectacular half-time show featuring Jennifer López (Jenny from the Bronx,NY) she became the first Latina to get paid 1 million dollars for a movie(Selena)in 1997. Shakira, is a Colombian-born superstar singer-composer whose complete name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll. Demetria(Demi)Lovato will sing the National Anthem.

Kansas City Patrick Mahomes is the fourth youngest quarterback to start a Super Bowl game,the other four: Dan Marino 1985,Ben Roethlisberger 2006, David Woodley 1983 and Jared Goff of the LA Rams last Super Bowl. Chief’s Mahomes is 24 years old attended Texas Tex University and his father Pat was a pitcher for 11 years in the major leagues. Mahomes threw 50 Touchdowns in 2918 and was the NFL MVP.

For the first time ever San Francisco 49ers will face Kansas City Chiefs in a Super Bowl.49ers quarterback Jimmy Garaffolo is going for the first time. If the 49ers win they will tie for most wins in Super Bowl history with: New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers with six(6)wins. This is the sixth time the Super Bowl takes place in Miami(stadium under different corporate names)

San Francisco defense is #1 in the Playoffs and #2 in Regular season. With a record of 4-12 the previous season,they are just the third team in NFL history that reached the Super Bowl on the next season. Coach Kyle Shanahan will make his Super Bowl debut, his dad Mike was offensive coach for the 49ers in the 1994 championship season and later led the Denver Broncos to consecutive titles in 1997-1998.

Predictions: In San Francisco/Bay Area 49ers are favorites. In Kansas City the Chiefs are the favorites. While the money in Las Vegas is Kansas City as slightly the favorites but basically you can flip a coin.

My prediction? Well…Flip a coin.

Super Bowl Bound; Niners Win NFC Championship 37-20

By Joe Lami

SANTA CLARA–The matchup is set, it will be the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers who will battle it out for the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LIV on February 2nd in Miami. The Niners advance to their seventh Super Bowl in franchise history, thanks to a 37-20 drubbing of the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game.

Raheem Mostert gashed the Green Bay Packers in one of the most dominant rushing attacks in NFL postseason history. Finishing with 220 yards on 29 carries and four touchdowns, Mostert became the first player in NFL history to rush for 200+ yards and four scores in a playoff game. He finished with the second-most rushing yards in a playoff game, falling 28 yards shy of Eric Dickerson’s record.

It was San Francisco’s most dominating rushing performance in franchise history. Not only did he surpass Colin Kaepernick’s memorable 181-yard game in Green Bay, but he also set the single-game franchise record, besting Frank Gore’s 212-yard game versus the Seahawks in 2006.

After quickly going three and out to open the game, San Francisco’s offense found it’s footing in the second drive and never looked back. Mostert initiated the scoring on a beautifully dialed up third and eight drawn play from the 36-yard line. Mostert found open space and was off to his first of three first-half touchdowns in the longest rush of his night.

Mostert was explosive no matter which direction he ran. He carried it nine times off the left tackle for 50 yards and two touchdowns, six times through the left-a gap for 42 yards and a score, five times through the right a-gap for 39 yards and a score, and off the right tackle nine times for 89 yards.

“Whether it’s special teams or offense, the way he hits the hole, he gets so vertical and fast. I think guys defense underestimate his speed. You can just see it, he’ll hit a hole and the guy will take what he thinks is a good angle. Next thing you know, he’s by him doesn’t even touch him. His 0 to 60 is literally in two steps and it’s so special with our offense, the way we run outside zone, inside zone, he can make one cut and get vertical. That’s all we need.” Said George Kittle.

The Niners rushing attack was so potent, it made Jimmy Garoppolo’s day incredibly easy. Garoppolo completed six of eight passing attempts for 77 yards, becoming just the fourth quarterback in NFL history to win a conference championship while attempting eight passes or fewer. He targeted Deebo Samuel three times for two completions and 46 yards. Kittle caught his only target for 19 yards.

Sunday’s Championship matchup felt like a replay of San Francisco’s week 12 commanding 37-8 victory. The Niners took control very early, racing out to a 27-0 halftime lead before Aaron Rodgers did his best to battle back in the second half, only to come up short.

Rodgers completed 31 of his 39 passes for 326 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions and felt the 49ers’ potent pass rush most of the contest, looking uncomfortable for most of the game. San Francisco forced three turnovers from Rodgers with Richard Sherman and Emmanuel Moseley getting the interceptions, while K’Waun Williams blitzed off the slot for a strip-sack, setting up San Francisco’s second of three field goals.

The Niners now will be competing for their first Super Bowl since 1995, going up against the Chiefs, who will be making their first appearance in 50 years. “It’s amazing. It means a lot to us, especially going through all of the adversity that we went through over the past couple of years. To be going to the Super Bowl and have the chance to be top of the league is amazing,” said Arik Armstead.

Dee Ford is excited to be going up against his former team, “it is going to be a great opportunity, it’s going to be like playing my brothers back to training camp days. It’s going to be fun.”
