John Elway’s done an outstanding job in his post as Executive Vice President of The Denver Broncos. The last Broncos QB to win a Super Bowl, Elway was happy that his gamble on Peyton Manning (who some said was finished after his neck injury) paid off. Sadly, he watched as his dream of winning again faded under the red-hot Seattle Seahawks Defense. Here’s his post-Super Bowl XVLIII interview, thanks to the NFL: BRONCOS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS JOHN ELWAY (on what happened in this game) “No. We just...

Peyton Manning gave a great, classy interview in the wake of being on the wrong end of a 45-8 Super Bowl XVLIII game where the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos. Here’s the text, courtesy of the NFL: (on what happened in the game) “I think we played a great football team. We needed to play really well in order to win, and we didn’t come anywhere close to that. We weren’t sharp offensively from the very get-go. The turnover on the first play of the game to give them a safety is not the way you want to start a game. For...

Frank Gore, the San Francisco 49ers great running back, provided a welcome contrast to the short, quips of answers than an obviously upset Colin Kaepernick left after the Niners lost Super Bowl XLVII to the Baltimore Ravens. Mr. Gore’s answers were long and engaging. Here’s Frank Gore: 49ERS RB FRANK GORE (on how proud he is of the team, despite the outcome) “I think we’re the better team. (I’m) just happy the way we kept fighting. Any other team probably would’ve just laid down, probably would’ve just laid down,...

Julie Buehler, who readers may recall has the radio show Buehler’s Day Off at KXPS 1010 Palm Springs, CA, and where I co-hosted the show last July 2nd, is in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII, where her show’s part of radio row. Julie posted the YouTube video above and that gives you a great view of where she is with respect to the other tables and with respect to the CBS stage. This video was posted on Monday, and today she’s at Super Bowl XLVII Media Day, so let’s hope that’s not the last one! Stay tuned. Share...

To understand just how much Colin Kaepernick’s life has changed in one year, you only have to see Bay Area sportscaster Ken Wayne’s photo, where he came upon a giant sized likeness of the Nevada running quarterback at the Marriott hotel in New Orleans where he is for Super Bowl 47. This is 2013, one year ago in January of 2012, only NFL Draft followers and Niners fans had even known of Colin Kaepernick and in 2011, only a hand-full of NFL Draft watchers knew about Colin. Yes, including this blogger – especially this...

Compared to Tom Coughlin, Eli Manning, and Tom Brady, and pretty much everyone else, New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick is a man of few words for the media. That was especially true after the Pats lost to the New York Giants 21 to 17 in Super Bowl XLVI. If you have doubt about that, just take a look at the full text of quotes, as provided by the National Football League. PATRIOTS HEAD COACH BILL BELICHICK (opening statement) “First of all, congratulations (New York) Giants. Won a championship, they’re a good football...

This is the full text of the press conference featuring NY Giants QB Eli Manning after his team defeated the New England Patriots 21 to 17, and was provided courtesy of the National Football League. What’s interesting is that the New England Patriots do not have any posted quotes from their Monday post game statements on the NFL’s media website. Of course, had the Pats won, that would have been a different story. Here’s the press conference: NEW YORK GIANTS QB ELI MANNING Super Bowl XLVI News Conference Indianapolis,...

Social media finally took center stage for a Super Bowl, so let’s see what was good, and bad, about the effort. The Social Media Command Center was the first of its kind and set up by the Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee. But it was more for monitoring than for publication. The YouTube channel, called Superbowl 2012, has only six videos (as of this blog post) to account for a two week period of activities. The Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee Flickr account has zero – that’s right, no – photos...

Twitter reports that the last three minutes of Super Bowl XLVI set a new Twitter Tweets per Second record with 10,000. That beat Tim Tebow’s now-short-lived record of 9,420 tweets-per-second after the Broncos win against The Steelers in the AFC Wildcard Playoff Game. It tops Beyonce’s Baby Bump at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards which was 8,868. It’s over twice the 4,064 tweets-per-second for Super Bowl XLV in 2011. It’s almost double the tweets per second during the Japan Earthquake of 5,530, and the...

As I start this live blog for Super Bowl XLVI, the New York Giants are mounting a drive after losing the coin toss (Pats deferred) – a lovely mix of runs and play action passes. So far, New England Patriots are playing a base defense set. And we had the first big play, with Hakim Nicks catching a pass that could have been picked off, and gaining 19 yards. Then, with the Giants in New England territory, Eli Manning went back to pass, but was sacked. Then the Pats Defense tightened, downed a run and now it’s 3rd and 13....

Today is Super Bowl Day, or as they say on Twitter “Happy Super Bowl Day.” It’s a day to reveal who we think will win the biggest single-day sports event in the World. After days and days of careful thought, this blogger picks the New York Giants to prevail over the New England Patriots 30 to 24. The reasons are these: 1) The Giants style of four-man-front defense matches up well with the Patriot’s passing spread offense. Moreover, the Pats don’t do a lot of the kind of play action that could get them downfield,...

The National Football League is pulling out all of the stops for Super Bowl XLVI, starting with the promoted Twitter hashtag #superbowl, and even sponsors like Audi giving a preview of its commercials for Super Bowl Sunday. Our own David Squires has his preview: Super Bowl XLVI Preview. And NFL Media has this Super Bowl preview: It all comes down to this. On Sunday, February 5, the New York Giants and the New England Patriots will meet in Super Bowl XLVI (6:00 PM ET, NBC) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. It marks a rematch of...

This ESPN summary says it all .  It was the most exciting Super Bowl I’ve ever seen and it seems America agrees with me.  Congratulations to the Champion Pittsburgh Steelers for winning their sixth Super Bowl ring.  It also keeps President Obama’s prediction of who will win safe, because he picked the Steelers, who helped him campaign in Pennsylvania and win that state.   And while the MVP went to Santonio Holmes, part of it should be share with Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arens, who created the plays...

This massive economic collapse has taken many companies and people into lower positions of wealth and caused many to lose their jobs at historic rates.  Well, after years of incredible growth, it was thought that the sports industry was immune to these developments surrounding the credit crunch.  Not so. I received this email from the NFL’s director of communications Greg Aiello:   As part of an overall cost-cutting plan in response to the slumping economy, the NFL today confirmed plans to reduce its...

New York Looking Super In Both NFL Conferences-by Jon Wagner-Senior Contributing Writer-Football Reporters Online It seems that immediately after Super Bowl XLII, a general consensus was formed that the road to Super Bowl XLIII would go through anywhere but the place where either of the two New York NFL franchises call home. Many believed that the journey to Tampa Bay in February would wind through Dallas or San Diego, or perhaps through New England, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, or Tennessee. The idea of the New York Giants defending their...

In my opinion, this is the most exciting compeitition for the Super Bowl I’ve ever seen. I can’t say I have a favorite in this race.

Smith, Dungy will make this a classy Super Bowl By John ClaytonESPN.comArchive CHICAGO — On the Friday evening before the start of the AFC playoffs, Bears coach Lovie Smith had dinner in Indianapolis with his close friends, Tony Dungy and Herman Edwards, before the two squared off for their first-round playoff game between the Colts and Chiefs. His Bears in a bye week, Smith sensed history. The three African-American coaches, devoted Christians and family men, were striving for the Super Bowl. Smith and Edwards learned NFL coaching...

Lovie Smith taking on Tony Dungy marks only the second time in the four major sports that the championship has both teams led by a black head coach/manager.

I hope this happens, as it would pave the way for major changes in society and for the better. Kids need to see this. They need to know they have a chance.

Why in heck would Gertrude Joseph, a TSA screener, feel it necessary to dig through trash — trash — to smell a water bottle? Several reasons: first, she knew it was Michael Vick; second, he complained; third, and most important, she’s black and he’s black and some of us don’t like others of us who have achieved any level of success. So she takes jock-sniffing to a new level — water bottle sniffing — in the process of trying to bring down the brother. Why did she go through the effort, when...

The Super Bowl Means Super-Size Hotel Rates By JENNIFER CONLIN – NY TIMESPublished: January 14, 2007 Finding a moderately priced hotel room in Miami during the winter is never easy, but securing one over Super Bowl weekend (Feb. 2 to 5) is a totally different ballgame, regardless of availability.

At the already pricey Delano, a city view deluxe room that would have cost $775...

January 15, 2007 By John Consoli Mediaweek NEW YORK — The Super Bowl has become a super pain for the broadcast networks to sell. Case in point: CBS this year. With just three weeks to go until kickoff, the network has sold slightly more than 70% of the in-game commercial units. And with a total of 58 spots, the network still has about 16 slots available. With so much potential revenue and prestige at stake—CBS could take in as much as $140 million on the three-hour game alone, in addition to millions from the six hours of pre-game...
