Sports Illustrated released its special Super Bowl covers today, with four prototypes, including the national cover featuring Jim and John Harbaugh facing each other in full-throated sideline profiles.
The headline for the national cover reads: "There Will Be Blood: Brothers Jim and John Harbaugh Face Off in a Fiery Showdown in New Orleans." There's also a nod to the "HarBowl Sunday" nickname that the game has garnered.
Better yet, in our opinion, are the covers of Ray Lewis ("There Will Be A Valiant Last Stand") and Joe Flacco ("There Will Be A Parade In Baltimore").
San Francisco running Frank Gore is pictured on a fourth cover, but we don't know why and don't care.
What's your favorite cover?
