The bulk of Media Day questions hurled at Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski concerned his left ankle, which he hurt during the AFC Championship Game two weeks ago and provides the only major injury storyline of this Super Bowl.
Apparently, the greatest challenge in Media Day is trying to get Bill Belichick to play along with your dumb comedy bits.
See the best photos from the Patriots’ Super Bowl XLVI Media Day session Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Tom Brady should be sitting at podium No. 10 on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium, but instead, he’s chillin’ in the lower deck behind the Giants’ sideline.
Thought we’d never make it to Lucas Oil Stadium, thanks to some tight security, but we’re coming to you live from what will be the Giants’ sideline five days from now.

You know this is a tough assignment when you bump into a uniformed war reporter at Media Day.

For all the brilliance Manning and Co. bring on the field of play, the chances of them doing or saying anything remarkable in front of the massed phalanxes of microphones, Dictaphones and TV cameras are barely between “slim” and “none.”
From the folks who gave us Dancing with the Super Bowl Stars in Tampa last year, we have a whole (side)show dedicated to a real talent-fest among this year’s players.
