Ravens tight end Ed Dickson is watching tape of the 49ers, and he likes what he sees.
Dickson said at Super Bowl Media Day that watching the 49ers’ defense give up 24 first-half points to the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game, the Ravens became confident that they’ll have similar success.
“We’ve seen the success that Atlanta had,” Dickson said, via CSNBayArea.com. “We’re not going to be naïve. I’m sure they’ve made corrections. In the end, it’s all about us and the things that we do well with running the football and passing the ball, just being a balanced offense. We’ve seen a lot of things on film we can exploit, and we’ll go after those things.”
Of course, the 49ers’ defense also shut the Falcons out in the second half, so the things the Ravens think they can exploit may have already been corrected. But Dickson, who was held without a catch in the AFC Championship Game, seems to think he’s going to get a lot more opportunities in the Super Bowl.
