Pete Carroll

The Super Bowl has landed right on top of the NY/NJ area, and even though we've been preparing for it for the past three years or so, it still promises to be an overwhelming event. Yesterday, the teams landed at Newark Liberty Airport right into the arms of the loving media. Here are some quotes that may interest you...

Broncos QB Peyton Manning on how much he has talked to brother Eli about playing in MetLife Stadium, and on playing the Seahawks:

?He told me he couldn?t help me much with Seattle. It wasn?t one of the Giants? better days. So he said to not ask him for a whole lot of help there. Eli and I have talked about playing in this stadium. I feel it was helpful to play in this stadium this season. It was the first time I had the chance to play in that stadium. So, it?s nice when you?ve played in it before, at least you kind of know the surroundings a little bit. Eli has been always helpful to me for many reasons. I?ve talked to him a number of times these past couple of weeks, and he is excited for me. I?ve always appreciated his help and support.?

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is coming back to the Meadowlands this week, a place he knows very well having coached both the Jets and the Patriots in the 1990's. A west-coast guy by nature, Carroll has spent this millennium coaching at USC and now the Seahawks.

He's coming back to the area with the NFC's top-rated team and will play this Sunday in the stadium that will host the Super Bowl in less than two months.

"No, we?re not looking at it that way," Carroll told reporters Wednesday. "We?re just trying to get there and get focused on this game and take care of business and we?ve talked about that a long ways down the road.? That really shouldn?t be in our business at all right now."

The Seattle Seahawks finished the NFL season at 7-9 to end a rather disappointing first campaign for head coach Pete Carroll.? But, thanks to the other dysfunctional teams in the soft NFC West, that was enough to win the division and grab a playoff berth.

By design, division winners are awarded at least one home game in the post season. In a situation that lined up perfectly for the Seahawks, they drew the injury-riddled, defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round and managed to sideswipe them to advance to the Divisional playoffs.
