The San Francisco 49ers completed their final on-field preparations for the Super Bowl on Saturday with a 15-minute walk-through under the Superdome lights before Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

START THE CIRCUS

We have the best images from the nuttiness of Super Bowl XLVII Media Day.

Harbaugh said the stadium lights are brighter than they were when the 49ers beat the New Orleans Saints here on Nov. 25, so getting his players adjusted to that was important.

Coach Jim Harbaugh invited family members and friends - 11 bus loads of people - to attend the short session and then come down to the field to pose for photographs. One person hollered Harbaugh's signature chant from the stands: ''Who's got it better than us?'' to which the rest of the group replied: ''No-body!'' - and the coach smiled and applauded the efforts.

Harbaugh has remained impressed with second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick before his 10th career NFL start. A huge swarm of people wanted a picture with him Saturday.

''I don't see any change, one way or the other,'' Harbaugh said. ''He is who he is. He has been pretty steady with his demeanor.''

The team had meetings scheduled Saturday night at its hotel.

''I feel good,'' Harbaugh said. ''The preparation has been outstanding, very focused. The players care about winning. They care about this team, and that's complimentary to the players and the way their focus has been. And that's not something that's been just this week. That wasn't just created this week. That's been all season and the offseason. It speaks very highly of the players.''
