Back in Seattle, we were joined by two former Seahawks for live chats. First was Jon Kitna, who recently used his winter break from teaching at Lincoln High School in Tacoma to play a week of quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. He talks about how that came about and his playing career. Then, Hall of Famer Warren Moon joined us. Moon will be at the Super Bowl all week and talked about his favorite parts of the experience and his keys to Sunday’s game between Denver and Seattle.
While Marshawn Lynch doesn’t like meeting with the media, no one thought he would be able to skip Media Day. But apparently, that is a possibility.
Speaking of Media Day, here’s a link to our chat during Media Day, which gets underway at 7:30 a.m. PST tomorrow morning.
The Seahawks met with media on Monday at 2:30 p.m. local time. As usual, Bob Condotta was all over the place, gathering video from safety Kam Chancellor (here’s his transcript), left tackle Russell Okung, and fullback Michael Robinson (his transcript).
Wide receiver Golden Tate is excited to go up against Champ Bailey, while defensive end Michael Bennett is a free agent after the Super Bowl and spoke about where he wants to play the 2014 season. Head coach Pete Carroll (link to video and transcript) talking about practicing in New Jersey and playing in inclement conditions.
Carroll’s team is pretty healthy going into the Super Bowl, with the one injury concern being wide receiver Percy Harvin. On Monday, though, Carroll addressed Harvin’s status and made it sound like he would definitely be playing.
Here are the stories we have for you from New Jersey today:
- Jayson Jenks delivers a profile of Richard Sherman by speaking to those closest to the cornerback.
- The Seahawks face another great tight end in Julius Thomas in the Super Bowl. This season, they’ve handled opposing tight ends very well.
- Speaking of the Broncos’ tight end, Thomas honed his football skills as a basketball player at Portland State.
- Bob’s notebook: Seahawks are preparing for the Super Bowl with Percy Harvin in the game plan.
- Column from Jerry Brewer: The hottest topic at the Super Bowl is actually a cold subject, literally.
