The Seahawks believe this will be a different game — much different — than the AFC Championship, played in Denver’s altitude and against the Patriots and their beat-up defense.

Jones: Sherman And Peyton Steal The Spotlight Leading Up To The Big Game

They have been the most compelling figures during Super Bowl 48 pregame media availabilities for players — which, as of Thursday, are over. Until after the game.

Jones: Elway’s Preseason Tirade Set The Tone For Broncos’ Super Run

Who says preseason games don’t count? The next time we hear that, we’ll think of this: John Elway absolutely lit into the Denver Broncos after their 40-10 loss to Seahawks in August.

Jones: Richard Sherman Impresses, Shows True Colors At Media Day

Predictably, his podium was the most crowded, by far, during Seahawks media day on Tuesday at Prudential Center. He arrived early and stayed late, and Richard Sherman enjoyed every minute of it.

Jones: Manning, Wilson Have A History — Even If They Don’t Know It

Connections in the NFL are funny. Everyone seems to know everyone, at least by extension. And first meetings often seem to find a way to come full circle. Such is the case with Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson.

Jones’ Super Bowl Notebook: Wilson’s ‘Visual’ Of MetLife And A Manning Reunion

As the Super Bowl quickly approaches, remember the date: December 15. Because you can be darn sure the Seattle Seahawks do.

Jones: Brady Playing It Cool Ahead Of Championship Game; Rex Ryan’s Future

Brady played the underdog card on Monday but hasn’t harped on it, at least not publicly. “When you play against one of the best teams in the league, you realize there’s very little margin of error,” he said.

Jones: No Offense Seahawks, Niners, But This Week Is All About Peyton & Tom

So, after a ho-hum divisional playoff weekend, we wind up getting the matchups that everyone wanted anyway. Especially this one: Brady vs. Peyton.

Jones: New Coordinator Alone Won’t Fix Eli Manning, Giants’ Offense

Bringing in a new offensive coordinator will only go so far. It will not ensure better execution or fewer turnovers and injuries. And it will not, in and of itself, fix Eli Manning.

Jones: Rex Ryan Shouldn’t Be A Coaching Casualty On Black Monday

We will learn in the coming days whether Rex Ryan remains the head coach of the New York Jets. And if he does not, we will know that Ryan never had a chance.

Jones: Jets QB Geno Smith Is Taking Steps Forward, Playing More Freely

In the past week, Geno Smith took an important step. He readjusted his game, at the urging of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, and stopped trying to be perfect. He got back to running with the football. He played more freely.

Jones: Imagine If Eli Manning Vs. Philip Rivers Was Truly A Big Game

It’s a shame there won’t be more on the line when Eli Manning and the Giants take on Philip Rivers and the Chargers 10 years later.

Jones: Jets, Smith Were Simply Not Ready For Raised Expectations

Wonder what Tim Tebow thinks of this. And Kellen Clemens. Mark Sanchez, too. Maybe, in Mississippi, Brett Favre is tracking the Jets quarterback situation and wondering, Can it really be this bad?

Jones: Giants Never Lost Faith, And Now They Have Their Chance

Because the Giants never lost faith and always believed, here they are, on Sunday, with a chance they could have only hoped for a month ago.

Jones: Reed Already Feels Comfortable With Surroundings In New York

Certainly it is a comfortable situation, Ed Reed is reunited with Rex Ryan and Dennis Thurman from their days together in Baltimore, and Reed in a defense in which he fits like a glove.
