Celebrated chef John Besh spoke with NFL.com on Friday and played a little word-association game involving the Patriots, Giants and some of the NFL’s biggest stars.
You wouldn’t expect Eli Manning to embrace the pressures of playing quarterback in New York. But to hear Manning talk, it’s all about being himself.
Our friends at EA Sports simulated Super Bowl XLVI on Madden 2012, and as many have predicted the game came down to a final fourth-quarter drive.
We are two days from the Super Bowl. It’s a magical number for quarterbacks, because signal-callers who win two Super Bowls seem almost destined for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Volunteers around the city haven’t failed to greet fans and media members with “Have a Super Day” during Super Bowl week, and that spirit of Midwestern hospitality has extended to the University of Indianapolis, the Giants’ practice home.
For a team that’s gone a combined 8-24 in the past two seasons, the Carolina Panthers sure are a confident bunch. Of course, that’s what happens when a player like Cam Newton bursts onto the scene.
Bill Romanowski, four-time Super Bowl winner, is pounding a smoothie as we begin our conversation. The former linebacker has a few things to say about preparing for the biggest game of the season.

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?
Eli Manning says the impact of his brother, Peyton Manning on the city of Indianapolis — which has spanned 14 years — goes far beyond football.
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.
