In 05, Wilson attended the Manning Passing Academy. Peyton was his counselor. When Wilson visited DEN predraft, Manning remembered his face.
Good morning from NYC. Been here since last Saturday. Have had a wonderful time. Now at Stadium with Joe and Troy getting ready.

Mr. Sherman is in the building. Did a lap around field, rallying Seahawks crowd to get loud. @NFLonFOX

Back in the booth from the field, Pretty cool down there with lots of dignitaries. Saw the officials. Seem relaxed.
Field Judge Scott Steenson retiring after this game. This is his second SB. Really a class guy. Hate to hear he is retiring.
Comment From Jim

I want the Broncos to win, because of Peyton Mannning.

Scott Fujita:

I want the Seahawks to win, if for no other reason than that’s who I picked to win the SB back in August, and I want to appear as if I know what the hell I’m talking about.

Comment From Mark Bryant

I just tuned in, where is Terry Bradshaw?

Barry Werner:

Terry is with his family in Louisiana. His father passed away.

Comment From Paul

my prediction Seattle 31 Denver 24

Scott Fujita:

I got Seattle winning, 24-17

Comment From 70 yr. old grandmother

I want to see Peyton Manning win because of the way theColts organization treated him after his injury. And I do not like the defensive player for the Seahawks, no matter how good he us. He is not a role model for young people and is the rudest pro player I can remember including T O.

Scott Fujita:

You should look into Richard Sherman’s story. I would actually consider him one of the quintessential role models in pro sports. I’m not a fan of his emotional outburst after the game 2 weeks ago, but I view it as exactly that — an emotional outburst. Shouldn’t let that cloud an otherwise remarkable story.

Todd Fuhrman:

Anyone have cool “friendly” wagering games going on at their Superbowl parties? Prop bets? Nothing says SB like having a few bucks on the line

Scott Fujita:

I’m betting that I’ll eat more of my wife’s Walking Taco Dip than anyone else in my house.

Todd Fuhrman:

Scott, having been in that spot where emotions run high how tough was it to basically flip a switch doing post game pressers?

Scott Fujita:

That’s where the NFL’s 10-minute “cooling down period” before media can enter the locker room is so valuable. You’re much more likely to see an emotional outburst on the field 2 minutes after making perhaps the biggest football play of your life, then you are after 10-15 minutes, a shower, and a chance to compose yourself.

Comment From angelo

are you THE scott fujita

Scott Fujita:

No, I’m the other Scott Fujita.

Todd Fuhrman:

Makes total sense on the cooling down period, have to imagine even 10 minutes with so much on the line wasn’t enough after most games.

Todd Fuhrman:

Vegas current line consensus: Denver -2.5 (-120)…risk 12 to make 10 and 47.5

Comment From Pat Drayton

Hey Scott Fujita Do you think Russel Wilson can outplay Peyton Manning

Scott Fujita:

Depends on your definition of “outplay.” I don’t expect him to put up better numbers than Peyton, but he doesn’t have to. The Seahawks are built on (very) tough defense, run offense, and smart QB play. The Broncos are built, almost exclusively, on Peyton.

Todd Fuhrman:

Al: Bettors definitely gravitated towards the under with so much speculation but over money came in earlier this week when the forecast cleared up

Seahawks 24-17
@daviswrapz >>Nope. I like what I do now.
I want Seahawks to win, mainly b/c that’s who I picked to win it back in Aug & I want to appear as if I know what the hell I’m talking about
