a challenge for radio sports jockeys.

PKG.

(LOCATOR: Miami, FL)



NATSD: (3:57) Jim Miller, former NFL
quarterback, joining us here on

sports NFL. (runs :02)



NATSD: (8:10) This is what I�m talking
about � making plays. It�s all up

to the quarterback. (runs :02



NATSD: (:52) It all starts with running
the football. (runs :02)



NATSD: (3:32) I think, one, you saw a
more determined Peyton Manning.

(runs :03)






TRACK: ON RADIO ROW, THEY BREAK IT
DOWN AND LAY IT OUT � ANALYZING

SUNDAY�S GAME FROM EVERY ANGLE.





NATSD: (6:44) I don�t see it happening
in this game either, though. 2nd

guy: Well, you hope it doesn�t because
they don�t look particularly

well. (runs :03)





TRACK: SPORTS TALK SHOWS, BIG AND
SMALL, FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY � AND

AROUND THE WORLD � ARE HERE. AND SO
FAR, THE BUZZ HAS BEEN, WELL �

BORING.





SOT: (11:00) No question that people


are searching for stories. (runs

:03)



TRACK: WHY? WELL, THIS COULD BE THE
FRIENDLIEST SUPER BOWL RIVALRY IN

YEARS.




Super: (Tod Eds/ABC Sports Radio
Network)



SOT: (17:51) You�re not going to get a


lot of trash talk from either

side because both players on both teams
have respect, not only for their

coach, but for the opposing coach.
(runs :08)



Super: Jason Gotch/Illinois Radio
Network)



SOT: (9:21) This seems like the Super


Bowl lovefest to me. I mean, it

seems like the players are gushing and
the coaches are gushing over the

other teams. (runs :06)





Super: Teri Okita/Reporting)

STANDUP BRIDGE: Sounds like good
sportsmanship, right? But a firestorm

here and there makes for good
headlines. Still, if you scratch the

surface, there�s drama to be had.



(Super: Steve Politziner/ESPN Radio)

SOT: (11:36) I think it�s Peyton



Manning. Does Peyton Manning need to

win this game to seal his legacy? (runs
:06)



SOT: (9:04) Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy,


obviously. Great friends, but

they�re going to be competitors come
Sunday. (runs :05)





TRACK: MARQUEE NAMES LIKE EMMITT
SMITH, JERRY RICE, AND JIMMY JOHNSON

HAVE ALL STOPPED TO GIVE THEIR PRE-GAME
ANALYSIS. IN THE END, THOUGH,

TALK IS CHEAP �







NATSD: (4:13) He comes to Indianapolis.
He�s trying to change the whole

dynamic of the team. (runs :04)



TRACK: � AND ONLY WALKING THE WALK
WILL WIN A SUPER BOWL. TERI OKITA,

CBS NEWS, MIAMI.
