Chatty Ravens could give 49ers an earful at Super Bowl

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens’ reputation for trash-talking arrived at the Super Bowl before they did.

While the Ravens were en route from Baltimore to the Big Easy, the San Francisco 49ers were already preparing for war of words with the chattiest team in the NFL.

“Most teams don’t really talk that much, but I’ve heard stories about them talking a lot,” San Francisco guard Alex Boone said. “Guys have told me not to get into it with them. We’re not here to get into a yelling match.”

That might change a bit Sunday when both teams play for the NFL championship at the Superdome.

The Ravens developed their swagger years ago under coach Brian Billick, who rarely backed away from a microphone and made no effort to put a muzzle on his players, most notably Shannon Sharpe and Tony Siragusa — both of whom are now being paid to blab as television commentators.
