Far, far away from what the Steelers and Cardinals are doing in preparation for Super Bowl XLIII, it was a pretty epic day on radio row in many regards. There was a marathon seven-hour chat session with fans on NFL.com. Can’t do that without the fans, and all the energy you brought to the mix was appreciated. A heavy-hitting list of guests join NFL.com and the NFL Network, the skies opened up over Tampa, and some good stories. And now the Super Bowl is only three days away.

Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Brandon Jacobs wants to return to the Giants, and he thinks it’s going to get done.
  • Well-dressed rookie Chris Johnson didn’t take home the hardware for Rookie of the Year — it went to Joe Flacco — but he still stopped by to chat and talk with Scott Hanson.
  • A shout out to to the Super Bowl blog’s biggest fan, Mrs. Brady.
  • A few of our troops checking out radio row. They were in wheelchairs, presumably from wounds they received fighting in the war. There is a rumor that former Lions offensive lineman Mike Utley, who was paralyzed playing football, gave them quite a pep talk. That’s class.
  • Tim Brown told a story about how missed the birth of his twins because of Super Bowl XXXVII his only appearance in the big game. His twins were born after the Raiders lost to the Buccaneers, 48-21, and was no doubt his best memory from Super Bowl week.
  • Phil Simms sees a lot of himself in Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne.
  • Almost all of the guests are picking the Steelers on Sunday.
