Back here on NFL Sunday Sports Radio WEEI let's be very honest okay. We were football fans we love the game we love the sport but for a large portion of the population watching the Super Bowl beginning at 630 years so -- tonight. A big portion of the population is watching for the commercials and watching for you know -- of creativity. It's an ancillary kind of weird way of me getting to the point where. Everything takes longer and Super Bowl and you went through this. Half times longer commercial breaks or longer how hard is it would just the rhythm of the game when everything changes for this one game. Won a big. Think you don't do. Is you don't get 53 guys doing Ray Lewis stances because that burns cal Berkeley East Africa did it to be honest though that debt. You know the blow through -- of the bigger helmet and run on the field moment. When you do that you know there's going to be a super long star spangled banner common -- you know all of that that all that stuff. Is longer so blasting what it is -- would actually I remember some scenes from -- the Carolina game. And watch in the future team in a mine Chris Jenkins get the guys fired up and you watch some of that old dvds of the of the three games ago or the second one of and watch how crazy Carolina was enough for you off. Coming out -- just. You know not to dance awesome -- we were sort of the economy the far end of that were you discovered. Quiet and silent because you know it takes forever as to all burning out of pre. Game in game and -- legacy behavior of yours who did. And and -- admits he was like the ultimate warrior in -- when he got Ella -- was he was blown out he got all blown out for the introductions for the first order for the cycles a second one was still -- -- all -- -- had not yet to take himself by one point and in the first series is. -- blown everything just get through it obviously is a special teams gaga and apparently of the things in my mind an orbit that that the big kickoff of the -- flash ball -- comments so. -- Syracuse we're -- a helmet and just be a polite answering dead tired deterrent going at seventy yards back to the direction. But your point the sort of the pause as the tiring in the amount to much longer -- are -- at times the game or because is especially if -- were on the transition plays -- So that the commercial breaks waters a lot of times of the author for upon ready to do it -- -- there -- you know punt returns come back out. And I remember specifically. At some nice -- the -- Jones for Philly was there. -- guy on the other side and he was not happy with. I was handling him and that was one of the official. Because of long commercial breaks you had time to wind back inaudible. Trying to give to stop whining but -- yet more dialogue time available to -- can standard for five minutes. Al sharp dude like let's just play like nothing but. If there's definitely more time with more -- what is it like to be on the field at the into the game clock trees in node view. One -- Is different all three games were different different just -- an obvious he was the Saint Louis game as the kick. Moral stand silent there -- man's -- on either on accounting and run on the field so that was different situation the whole team dumping the silent sprint. Houston ended. With -- kick off play if you remember Houston puts in Steve Smith of Carolina gaming news. What's in Steve Smith and never. Rod Smart you -- you evening and a behavior was one of the top kick return personally get that arm and Steve Smith one of the top torturers but had. Had a great role wide receivers I've moved away from the kick return rule. They had poured in their secret weapon Steve Smith back we have one kicked -- and we kicked deep. And I made attack former players -- much you -- me. So I'm. On top of the returner. Eighty yards away from everyone else is wrong to celebrate -- I was -- they had to wait for I was I was excited that I made the play and everyone else is the fifth the -- directions you know. That was weird I'm trying to think back how Philly and it. That the writers and seven Roger's pick exactly so that was the storm the field kind of moments Cuba -- all -- have their own little fuel you know wasn't. That was a little less of a balanced I think the other two. And I are Ratner and you have a member -- Well and and I can see where it would -- be a blur I remember we were talking about this when the patriots beat Saint Louis and -- trouble. Because it was that it was that transcendent moment now for sports fans in New England. And I remember as Vinatieri kicks but the up rights. I vividly remember ball hands on top of my head. And literally sink hole lead bleak but they won the super ball it was it was like you couldn't believe what you would juicy. It was literally remember covering their team and in I always. So people's Libyan prison for the moon landing if -- new England sports -- because the patriots sitting -- again you were were so bad -- -- sneaked in for such a long time and then I felt that same thing in 2004 when the Red Sox won the world yeah exactly I -- that exact same way it was like the almighty god this is where I never thought I'd received -- I had I remember having to globalize -- turning to someone in the press from instinct of the how ridiculous esteem and is of course now. You know 1012 years -- it's is exactly -- it -- commonplace but. You know packed and it's it's it's a remarkable thing I like to watch Barack -- three games Gloria from time retirement comes out early school football implement workable or be re showing that game. And I remember and wants Smith's reaction. We were all chemists and -- I like to get after my father went to pitchers place and bought the old. The -- -- that posters you know big wide angle posters that shows the final kick on each of the each of the three Super Bowls. And you can look up and down that Simon and what cool worth by who win a lot of guys hold hands a lot of guys with. Hands on the shoulder lot of pray and on the planet really was and they have that it was in the in the Houston one as well I mean it's sort of that same scenery playbook -- -- the other direction. -- that the reaction to run on the field that's sort of ridiculous elation I was looking into what Smith who high stepped onto the field and that's sort of crazy motion. And you remember lawyer coming on and given built huge hog with his daughter and the or just it was a really emotional one I don't ever feel exactly the same in the other two maybe it's because it was -- probably wasn't the same -- it wasn't the same but just that explosion on the field everyone look around go. It took a bit like. Just happened. It was it was one of those moments that as a sports fan you'll never forget as a player. I imagine you'll never forget and the other going to be a bunch of guys in today we said there are only eight players on the east to rosters combined to even have Super Bowl experience. So for the vast majority of whichever team wins this thing is going to be only. This going to be something totally different there's a great stat about Colin -- -- there were only four quarterbacks. Who have played in a Super Bowl in the same season the pace started their very first game. The only one who lost the Super Bowl a year was -- parent normal who even knew he was on the list. Tom Brady is one obviously and I've got the other two hearing that'll come up in and -- epidemic is one. Which hostetler maybe you horror now I was just looking at a minute ago too but. -- Kurt Warner. And -- entering and that are there in 1979 ferret -- all lost 1999 curt Warner won. 2001 Tom Brady one and then you've got cap predict today. We don't know yet but though those were the only four guys in NFL history. Who started the Super Bowl. In the same season that they started their first game we talked about the fact that there are only -- that didn't sort of know that started their first game that sees other presented -- We we talked about the fact that the only guys know who have who will experience going into this scheme in your experience. Having been there as a new guy in having been there is an -- part of a team that had been there before. Logistically is there a discernible advantage from. It not having been there to having been you know -- good because it -- -- in and talk about those -- long timeouts and having to kind of peace yourself throughout today so that issues -- -- -- and organizational issue coaching thing is supposed to players in the field or she -- to each side. -- big game week is marches gist of the links in time of game just the just sort of the pace of the week it's sold hugely important you know -- -- -- mature probably help the ravens much as whichever player happened at a ringer. Boy having your coaches that are kind of helped you through the pace of the week. The in game stuff you know -- that we always forget is. I I really can't you know. Played three and Carol remember awhile what Boris stands at the veterans from the football place. So we still played. Game so hopefully you have a a veteran stating presence whether he played in twelve -- over -- -- culture that is important I just think it's the game operations one point would be. I think you get to choose one other regional player next you -- -- this war vs a coaching staff to prepare the guys the coach and staff from. One quick note and this is so far left field but I can't help myself. It detects machine which we refer to from time to time we don't even necessarily seek texts during the course of this program as we don't take phone calls and we -- But every once in awhile a text we'll come across the machine which just sort of -- me. This -- says quote Dave. What did you deal with all my money I had like 600 in the blue folder. Glory to god gave right now and I'm all worried about whoever wrote this text because it obviously wasn't any of us. Did the eighth catch a flight to New Orleans to get game with this otherwise he's on -- with market blue folder I had like 600 in the -- what to do with all my money. I mean I unfortunately can't help them but I'm a little worried about whoever wrote this thing.
