A trip to Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a dream come true for any typical Southerner who grew up in racing-crazed North Carolina. At least that’s the logic I assumed my bosses used when they sent me off to the Super Bowl media party Tuesday night.
Antrel Rolle is no stranger to speaking his mind. He’s also no stranger to being confident. Often times for Rolle, that has created a volatile mix.

Media Day has come and gone but not without leaving a ton of great memories in its wake.
Gerard Warren isn’t exactly nostalgic for his early days with the Browns. The 33-year-old Pats defensive tackle is about to play in his first Super Bowl, and was quick to detail the differences between this experience and the four up-and-down seasons he spent in Cleveland.
I encounter Vic “The Brick” Jacobs mid-interview with Giants TE Travis Beckum.
Giants RB Brandon Jacobs has fantasized about one specific ending to one of his games. Now he’d love nothing more than his dream to come true during the final seconds of Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Seated at the most crowded podium during Tuesday’s Media Day, Giants QB Eli Manning fielded questions about older brother Peyton‘s health and playing in his second Super Bowl. But what if Manning never was traded to the Giants on the day the Chargers drafted him No. 1 overall in 2004?
For the first time in his life, Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul will have his whole family on hand for a football game when he plays in his first Super Bowl on Sunday. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean his father will be able to see it.
Mark Herzlich has yet to play the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, but the Giants’ rookie linebacker won the biggest battle of his life when he overcame Ewing’s sarcoma, a type of bone cancer.
Eli Manning says the impact of his brother, Peyton Manning on the city of Indianapolis — which has spanned 14 years — goes far beyond football.
Super Bowl week has pulled in characters from all corners.
If there’s anyone outside of the Colts and their fans who want to see Peyton Manning return to the field, it just might be someone who grew up competing against him.
Giants players at Media Day have to be ready for anything, especially reporters who speak another language and have strange requests.
One of the cool things about having fans involved in Media Day is the life they breath into the stadium. But I have to admit, the random cheers emanating from the crowd at random points of the day is a little disconcerting.
