Super Bowl inactives: Gilliam, Norwood, Lewis top the list

Here is the list of Seattle’s inactives for the Super Bowl.

No real surprises, but with the Seahawks basically fully healthy there were some tough decisions to make and a few rookies who surely wanted to play today will not.

There’s a picture of the list below for both the Seahawks and Patriots.

And here are the names: QB B.J. Daniels, CB Marcus Burley, OL Patrick Lewis, OL Keavon Milton, DT David King, OL Garry Gilliam and WR Kevin Norwood.

Maybe the most interesting thing is that Lewis — who has been the backup center — is inactive. That means Lemuel Jeanpierre is the backup today. There is no apparent injury, so the assumption is that maybe Seattle sees a matchup thing there — Vince Wilfork comes to mind — that they’d think Jeanpierre is better suited. Or maybe just his experience.

That Norwood is inactive might also be a mild surprise. But again, the health of the team means someone had to be to get to 46. For now, Chris Matthews has taken his place as the last WR due to his special teams ability. And it might speak to a gameplan today that could be run heavy.

Also inactive is Garry Gilliam, one of the heroes of the NFC title game win over the Packers. But again, assuming just a numbers crunch here. Seattle has seven OLs active.

Also worth noting that S Steven Terrell is active. He was active against the Packers but Jeron Johnson was not. Now, both are. Might be insurance due to the injuries at that spot.
