Silver linings: 49ers vs. Ravens

By Mike Sando

Thanks to those who reminded me to produce a "Silver linings" file following the Super Bowl. It's taken most of the week, but here goes.

The facts: The San Francisco 49ers suffered a 34-31 defeat to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.

The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two. Looking ahead: The 49ers hold the 31st pick of the 2013 NFL draft.
