Well, now I can openly say I was not surprised at all the Seahawks won this one. Sunday morning, I predicted them to win, 26-23, in deference to the outpouring of love for Peyton Manning, but I knew the Seahawks were loaded for bear.

The Broncos underestimated the Seahawks' speed (or could not match it). Seattle plays on FieldTurf, which is the same surface as MetLife. The Broncos play on grass. Footing and speed are everything in football and the Seahawks had the edge. No one talks about that kind of stuff, but it's very important. Percy Harvin just blew by them.

The other factor was they took away the long pass from Manning, forcing his receivers into a 20-yard box. The Seattle DBs pounded them, a la the Giants vs Buffalo in SB XXV. After awhile, those body blows led to apprehension and turnovers ensued. Ballgame.

Jets' Hall-of-Fame QB Joe Namath, the hero of Super Bowl III and Giants legendary QB Phil Simms, the MVP of SB XXI, will be the participants in Sunday's ceremonial coin toss at Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium.

These two storied QBs are two of the most-loved icons in New York sports history.

Both players have had their uniform numbers retired by their respective teams are members of their clubs' rings of honor. Namath was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985. Through his victory in SB III, he is widely credited for facilitating the merger between the AFL and the NFL.

Super Bowl Media Day was held out at the Prudential Center in Newark today. Lots of questions were asked and most of the answers were predictable and safe ones.

The closest thing to controversy was the short interview given by Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch.

?A little bit," Lynch said when asked if he has been able to enjoy the moment. "I won?t be satisfied with this until it?s all over. When we win, that?s when I?ll be satisfied. Until then, I?ve got work, but I appreciate all this. Y?all have a good day.?

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.?

Yesterday marked the 27th anniversary of the Giants' first Super Bowl victory, a 39-20 romp over John Elway and the Broncos in Super Bowl XXI. It was the Giants' first NFL Championship in 30 years.

Grown men were reduced to tears. I myself was misty-eyed as I witnessed Bill Parcells being carried off the field. After twenty years of fandom, I never thought I'd ever see that moment. The Giants had been traditionally bad until the early 80's and then lost several years in the playoffs before reaching the summit.

As the deep freeze continues here and across the country, the NFL is getting nervous about the weather for next week's Super Bowl. Although they feel confident they can handle anything thrown their way, the cold weather here in the NYC Metro Area - and around the country - ?is reaching historic proportions.

In the world of the Giants, they are preparing to host the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks next week at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. QB Eli Manning is more concerned with assisting brother Peyton, who with the rest of the Denver Broncos will be out at the Jets' facility in Florham Park.

?I?m rooting for him,? Manning said on a conference call yesterday, per the Giants. ?It?s not like watching any other football game. If I?m watching two other teams, I?m kind of casually watching and don?t really care who wins or loses. Here, it?s a little bit more nerve-wracking. I don?t get nervous playing football games, I get nervous watching my brother play.?

Now that the Super Bowl tournament is down to four teams, the New York Metropolitan area is bracing for fans of four cities: Seattle, San Francisco, Denver and Boston.

Jet fans are praying the Patriots lose in Denver next Sunday. There is no way they want a New England invasion/celebration at MetLife in three weeks.

Giant fans have no real axe to grind with either the Seahawks or the Niners. Some favor Seattle because they feel San Fran engages in what one would call classless or less-than-desirable behavior. WR Antwan Boldin and head coach Jim Harbaugh are both becoming hated across the league.

As NFL cities across the country anxiously await the announcement for future Super Bowl destinatiosn, Giants co-owner Steve Tisch remains focuses on XLVIII.

Super Bowl XLVIII, which will be played in the New York-New Jersey area, is just more than eight months. It will mark the first ever cold-weather Super Bowl, which of course, could alter the landscape for selecting host cities going forward.

The biggest concern, in skeptic's eyes, is the weather.

With parts of Long Island still unplowed, one has to wonder if the NFL and the Super Bowl host committee is altering their plans if a weather event hits the area next February.

From Curtis Crabtree of PFT...

The winter storm that hit the northeast last week highlighted the concerns that have previously kept the Super Bowl from being played in outdoor stadiums in cold weather environments.

One week after the Super Bowl, the New York Metro Area has been blanketed with a foot of snow. Surrounding areas such as Long Island, upstate NY and New England got two and three times that.

Manhattan is basically clear and open. In the outer boroughs, most streets are plowed. But....many major highways have been shut down with abandoned cars still trying to navigate them. Mass transit is running at about 60% capacity.

The snow has stopped and the cleanup is underway, but the airports are still closed. Airlines have cancelled thousands of flights. Travel into and from the area is at a standstill.
