More than 7,000 fans paid good money to sit and watch reporters ask NFL players questions yesterday.
I don't get it.
Oh, and I was one of them.
For the first time ever the NFL opened up media day to paying customers. Fans could pay tickets for $25 face to come sit in the lower level of Lucas Oil Stadium while reporters flocked around NFL players to ask them banal questions. Each ticket scored a swag bag for the fan, including an FM radio receiver that allowed them to hear an audio feed from any of six stations.
I landed a last minute invite from Matt Grecco of Stampede Blue, and to be honest his conversation was far more interesting than anything that took place on the field. The highlight of media was clearly to performance of Tom Brady. Brady figured out about half-way through his interview that the fans could hear him, and began to pander to the crowd with multiple references to the Colts and Peyton Manning and Dwight Freeney. At some point a classic Patriots tri-corner...

It's Super Bowl week. As the Pats and Giants gear up for their rematch, the questions over Peyton Manning's future continue to hover in Indy. Peter King has it all in this week's MMQB.
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul isn’t too worried about being able to rattle Patriots quarterback Tom Brady this coming Sunday.
“Anybody can be rattled,” said Pierre-Paul. “Tom Brady is a great quarterback, but at the end of the day he’s just a quarterback. It’s not like he’s God.”
Pierre-Paul is right, the past couple of meetings between the Giants...
What started as a quarterback's cheat sheet has become standard equipment
INDIANAPOLIS -- When the Patriots lost 24-20 to the Giants in November, their critics pounced: The dynasty is dead. Tom Brady can’t do it anymore. This is the year they stumble.
Yeah, so much for that.
The Patriots went out and blasted the Jets 37-16 that week at MetLife...
