    Yeah, too bad he's so focused on this whole 'win the Super Bowl' thing that he can't take a minute to answer reporters questions like "Do you think Justin Beiber should be deported?" (Given some of the 'reporters' the NFL has let into Media Day in past years, it really would not have surprised me if this was actually a question that was asked this week)

    Anyone doing the SuperBowl picks for colors? I would do it, but I'm lazy.

    I'm planning on it.

    One of my roommates went to check out Super Bowl Boulevard today and it sounds like most of her time was spent checking out the Puppy Bowl zone. I might be braving the crowds on Saturday? Maybe?

    I liked it when a reporter asked him(Lynch) "How do you get to be where you're ready for a game".

    Lynch: I stay ready. [face_laugh]

    Short and sweet.

    It sounds maybe far fetched but I think Lynch might have a bit of social anxiety when it comes to talking to reporters and media. Like it might stoke his anxiety and throw his mental focus on the game off.

    Does anyone else miss the NFL making unique logos for each Super Bowl? The one they have used the past few years is so bleh.

    Yes! I can understand some of the NFL's reasoning to standardize the logo, but it's not like they had no issues in promoting the game, etc, with the old logos. Damn it. :p


    However, at the very least there is a bit of variety with the new logos:

    Though for Super Bowl XLV, that one with Cowboys Stadium in the background wasn't the official logo used.

    I miss the old logos too. But we still get the host committee logo which I've seen all over town.

    I'm hearing that Michael Strahan got elected to the Hall of Fame. Well deserved!

    Hadn't heard that yet, given they're making the HOF announcements on their NFL Honors show this year, which is on FOX.

    Talking about Andre Reed


    Edit: Not that it really matters given that ESPN is spoiling the whole awards on SportsCenter right now.

    They have Eddy Lacy as Offensive Player of the Year and Ron Rivera as Coach of the Year.

    Those are brilliant choices for HOF. Best offensive lineman of my lifetime, happy the voters didn't make him wait.
