Bush looks at Media Day from a different angle

Of all the individual experiences players have on Media Day, Saints RB Reggie Bush may have had the most unique perspective of them all.

Don’t forget about the O-line

Peyton Manning could have used a few of his offensive linemen while trying to get out of the club level of Sun Life Stadium, where Tuesday’s Media Day was moved in anticipation of rain. Manning, who easily gathered the largest crowd at his podium, was besieged by cameras and reporters while trying to make his exit.

Random observations from Colts Media Day

There’s so much going on in such a short period of time here at these Media Day sessions, I thought I’d give you a taste of some of the things I saw and overheard during the Colts’ morning session:

Brackett: Super Bowl the ‘ultimate business trip’

Linebacker Gary Brackett called the Colts’ appearance in Super Bowl XLIV “the ultimate business trip.”

Manning keeps it light at opening press conference

Peyton Manning followed coach Jim Caldwell up on the main podium, while some of his teammates scatted around the ballroom here at the Marriot Harbor Beach hotel where the Colts are based.

Caldwell: Colts preparing as if Freeney will not play

Coach Jim Caldwell was the first to speak at the Colts’ arrival news conference Monday. As expected, the first questions were about DE Dwight Freeney, who according to the Colts

Vikings WR Berrian questionable vs. Browns

Brett Favre may be without his best deep threat when he makes his Vikings debut vs. the Cleveland Browns Sunday. Wide receiver Bernard Berrian is listed as questionable on the Vikings’ injury report with an injured hamstring.

Nice day to be a kicker

We’re about two hours away from kickoff, and most of the Steelers have taken the field to warm up — themselves and the crowd, which at this point is about half full, but consists mostly of Steelers fans. It’s a sea of Terrible Towels out here, and needless to say, they are primed for this game.

Don’t stop believing

Just got back from the NFL’s tailgate party, where Journey is entertaining hundreds of well-connected fans and celebrities, including the likes of Alonzo Mourning, Andy Roddick, Brooklyn Decker (Roddick’s swimsuit-model girlfriend) and some much appreciative family and friends here for all the festivities.

S’mores and Sushi at the Super Bowl

It wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without exorbitant concession prices. Take a look at a quick rundown of some of the food and beverages on sale around the stadium.

Buccaneers cheerleaders stop by the set

It must be rough being Scott Hanson. In between interviews with the likes of Redskins QB Jason Campbell and Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff, he has to give some time to Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders Sahara and Jeni, who are making the rounds at Radio Row promoting their calendar.

Ogden hopes Lewis stays a Raven for life

Former Baltimore Ravens tackle Jonathan Ogden doesn’t wear his Super Bowl ring all the time. But when he’s back in Tampa, site of the Ravens’ victory in Super Bowl XXXV, Ogden feels the need to show it off.

Brown: Bears, McNabb a good fit

Eight-time Pro Bowl guard Ruben Brown stopped by to chat with us to offer his opinion on Eagles QB Donovan McNabb. Brown sat out the last season due to injury, but after spending four seasons in Chicago, is trying to convince coach Lovie Smith that McNabb would be a good fit in the Windy City.

Like father, like son

With a little down time on the NFL Network set, Deion Sanders had a chance to stop by the desk for a little visit. We thought maybe he wanted to get in on our marathon chat session from Radio Row. Not so much. Instead, he wanted one of our laptops to show off some video clips off his kids playing high school football. It may just have been the highlight of our day…and this in a day in which we got to see Faith Hill up close.

Got questions? Chat with players on Radio Row

It’s fast and furious down here on Radio Row. Players are lining up at the NFL set, so we’ve been fortunate enough to get some of them to sit down and answer questions.
