Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is getting a lot of attention at Super Bowl festivities this week. But John Madden says Seattle QB Russell Wilson is deserving as well. “He just has ‘it,’ whatever ‘it’ is,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
Players are required to attend Super Bowl Media Day, but some clearly don’t like being there. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch said very little in his brief appearance, telling reporters he likes game action more than talk.
It’s a question 49er fans will have to answer come Sunday, what to wear to the Super Bowl Party. For business owner Mary Guercio, the answer came after watching Richard Sherman’s now famous postgame interview after the NFC Championship Game.
While these two teams did play each other during pre-season, it’s safe to say that only a fool would look at that game footage in August for an inside edge.
For those who may not be old enough to remember, Seattle and Denver used to both be in the AFC West, facing off more than 50 times as division rivals. This wasn’t limited to the regular season either as both teams met in 1983 for Seattle’s first every NFL Playoff game.
If Denver wins the Super Bowl, Broncos safety Mike Adams plans to walk from the stadium to his hometown of Paterson, New Jersey wearing his helmet and shoulder pads. It’s his way to show how far he’s come from the troubled dead-end street where he grew up. John Madden said it’s important to take in the magnitude of the moment, especially given the importance placed on the game these days.
In the days since his rant, Sherman has moonwalked from his outburst. Well, kinda. He didn’t apologize for humiliating Michael Crabtree, but insisted he was sorry for deflecting from his team.
Golden State guard Stephen Curry was named an NBA All Star starter Thursday, the first Warrior to be so honored since 1995.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is only 5’11”, but part of his success at quarterback may be his unusually large hands.
Rather than focusing on silly statistics like Denver’s 0-3 Super Bowl record when wearing their orange jerseys, this is going to be on legitimate game-changing X-Factors.
