>> reporter: super bowl season is t.v. buying season. it even beats the holidays. >> i just want a big flat screen t.v., 46 to 50 inches. assuming it's a good deal. >> reporter: with so many options meraz ma, l.c.d., l.e.d., smart t.v., what's a fan to do? >> the plasma tv's the end on the the rock stars. >> reporter: brian cooley says your best bet is plasma. >> they're not as thin as many of the led/lcd's not as sexy if you will and 2e7bd to be thought of as an older technology. we did our list of the best cheap, best value and best high- end flat panel t.v. and a plasma model, one in every single category. >> reporter: with a higher refresh rate, meraz mas handle motion better, meaning that touchdown pass will be crystal clear and they law for better off angle viewing. >> you have the focus over to watch the game you can overpack the living room people are sitting left and right trying to see the screen. plaza ma is very good at that. >> reporter: while l.e.d.'s may
5:11 pm
not be ideal for the big game their picture is brighter and more vibrant for every day viewing. when choosing a t.v., cooley says size does matter. think 50 inch for the average living room, which you should be able to find for under a grand. and while he says you do definitely want a 1080p, just how smart does your t.v. really need to be? >> the so-called smart t.v.'s which are just internet connected may not add a whole lot in terms of watching football or the super bowl, because the n.f.l. doesn't make much if anything available for streaming. however, you definitely want a smart or connected t.v. going forward. i would not buy a new t.v. today that doesn't have those features built in. >> reporter: now the best day to buy a t.v. is the day after the super bowl. that's when prices start to come down. and buyer beware of a manufacturer who promises a faster processor or something else that sets them apart. for the most part they all use the same parts. >> ok. thanks. >> look and sound good. >> exactly. it's a journey eight years
5:12 pm
in the making. now, frank gore and the niners are super bowl bound. the role he plays on and off the field. >> it's not a stretch to believe the niners will bring home the championship, or is it? how stretching could be the secret weapon that got them to the big game.

5:15 pm
passed a budget, the ipad wasn't even invented yet. >> one of the first items on president obama's to do list is to finalize the next phase of the draw-down of u.s. troops in afghanistan. also on the president's radar, comprehensive immigration reform and a push for congress to pass tighter gun control laws. and it's election day in israel, and it appears prime minister benjamin net yaw >> will get another term in office. voters headed to the polls today. even among his opponents netanyahu is considered the best man to lead his country. no matter the outcome, the u.s. approach to the palestinian conflict won't change. the big easy is getting ready for the world stage and having the niners and ravens playing in the super bowl isn't just great for the fans. it's actually really, really good news for the new orleans economy. two weeks out and the transformation of jackson square is getting closer to completion. other projects going on all

5:17 pm
laughable niners now going to the super bowl. >> nobody does it better than frank gore. sometimes we have conversations on the sideline, and what he sees, what he thinks will work. and we bat it around. sometimes during the game. >> i'm ecstatic, a guy like frank gore, who's busted his butt for a long time. you know, he deserves to be in the spotlight. everybody deserves to know, not just how great he's been this year and last year but when he came into the league in 2005. >> if he runs for 100 yards the niners are going to win this game. people forget that when frank gore -- he came in the same year that the 49ers quarterback alex smith was drafted number 1. frank was a third round pick because he had two surgically repaired knees, he dropped down to the third round. >> wow. >> he has put in such good numbers. such good numbers. >> yeah. >> it will be great for him to have a win. >> 100 yards, and a win you heard it here. take it to the bank.
5:18 pm

5:19 pm
58. san francisco currently 59 degrees. because of the cloud cover we won't be as chilly. santa rosa down to 40. san jose 43, and mountain view 44 degrees overnight tonight. you can see on the satellite radar review that clouds and moisture are moving in. you see it building to our south and west. the clouds are now here and with low pressure moving in from the north and west dragging a weak cold front through, showers return tomorrow. mostly we get it tomorrow afternoon. but showers for the first time in a long time will be here and a cooler and cloudier pattern will be here for a while, even after that front moves through. so here is your future cast. we'll see showers moving into the north bay early. most of you got the rain in the afternoon but scattered showers moving back in for the first time in a week and a half. highs tomorrow will not be as mild. hayward 58, palo alto 51, right around 59 for walnut creek, vallejo 58. pet lou ma tomorrow 56. daly city 57 degrees. the next seven days, scattered showers tomorrow, especially late. drying out thursday and friday. low 60s, partly sunny, cloudier

on saturday and then another round of rainfall moves in on sunday before we clear out once again on monday and tuesday. all in all, there isn't going to be anything terribly heavy. not going to be anything terribly widespread but for the first time we'll see showers in the forecast and these kids outside enjoying a dry night tonight for practice will likely see things changing in 24 hours. that's it live from walnut creek with the cbs 5 mobile weather lab. >> paul get back out there. no yellow card next time. well, it's kept them on the field and on the road to the championship. the niners' secret weapon has kept them healthy this season. an base, it's
5:21 pm
look at you guys with your fancy-schmancy u-verse high speed internet. you know, in my day you couldn't just start streaming six ways to sunday. you'd get knocked off. and sometimes, it took a minute to download a song. that's sixty seconds, for crying out loud. we know how long a minute is! sitting, waiting for an album to download. i still have back problems. you're only 14 and a half. he doesn't have back problems. you kids have got it too good if you ask me.

5:23 pm
well, the 49ers are favored to win the super bowl, and with a great record, huge fan base, it's not that much of a stretch. >> or is it? why stretching may give the niners the edge. [ cheers and applause ] >> >> announcer: gore takes it into the end zone for a touchdown! >> reporter: the niners are heading to their first super bowl in 18 years, thanks to a dazzling quarterback, a phenomenal coach and a ferocious defense. but another important factor, these guys stretch, a lot. and this focus on stretching may give these players an edge >> it helps to prevent injuries. >> reporter: today. >> nice! >> reporter: i suited up. >> so this is the quad and the hip flexor stretch. >> reporter: and got a good stretch from physical therapist marty maddox. maddox says football players develop huge muscles and if they don't stretch them to keep them flexible and elongated, there's trouble. >> watch kaepernick running,
5:24 pm
and he didn't have normal flexibility when he takes off in that heated sprint, he would probably hurt himself. >> reporter: the 49ers have been in remarkably good health, compared to the competition. over the past two years, while 49ers have missed 159 games due to injury, the ravens have missed 310. that's 95% more. other teams stretch, but the niners do so religiously. before and after each practice, and again in the locker room. they train hard to stay loose. otherwise -- >> you want to move it quickly, and it's tense and tight, it can very easily rupture or tear. >> it's a event >> oh, god, marty it hurts. go niners! from >> reporter: we all could learn. >> go niners! >> reporter: i was outdoors exercising this weekend but did not take the time to stretch, and boy, could i feel it today. i need to take my own advice. >> so really, everybody should be stretching. >> yes. >> i've heard twice a day, morning and night is good.
5:25 pm
>> i think it's a great idea. you'll sleep better. think about it. if you're keyed up playing with youri moats or video game, you're doing this all day long. no wonder your neck hurts. you've got to stretch. all of us. getting off and on the bus it will help. q. is there such a thing as overstretching? >> well, there can be but that's another story. >> ok. >> for most of us we need to do it. >> moderation. >> just do some of it. >> all right. we'll be right back.
