If Crabtree and Kaepernick can pull off another outstanding outing in the game of their lives, they'll take the podium together again for an entertaining back and forth of compliments and good-natured ribbing.
After one game, they held a joint postgame news conference.
All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis, a member of San Francisco's stingy, run-stopping defense, regularly offers a pat on the back and hug to Kaepernick.
"In a close game, we would win because our defense doesn't give up," Davis said. "Our offense is always aggressive and eager to win."
Hoisting the Lombardi Trophy is the plan now. In the Niners' rooting section: Rice, Roger Craig, Joe Montana and Steve Young.
The current 49ers are fully aware of the history, most notably a perfect Super Bowl record that they must protect. San Francisco is 5-0 in championship games and trying to match the Pittsburgh Steelers for most ever.
"This is incredible, man,' Davis said. "Just being a part of this franchise is legendary — Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Steve Young — and to be able to bring a ring back, that's something that you can cherish for the rest of your life."
PREDICTION: 49ers 31, Ravens 27.
