John Harbaugh to join NBC's Super Bowl XLIX coverage, more pregame tidbits — We have become accustomed to eternal pregame shows for the Super Bowl and NBC has no plans to deviate from the tradition like no other. The network will air six hours of pregame programming on Sunday beginning with a live report from Bob Costas at noon ET.

NBC's broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX between Seahawks and Patriots — Last August, Sunday Night Football coordinating producer Fred Gaudelli and his core production team spent a pair of 10-hour days at NBC Sports's headquarters in Stamford, Ct. screening the previous three Super Bowl telecasts on a 100-inch monitor with surround sound. But this was no Sabolian Fantasy Camp for the 15-person group.

Mark Brunell on why he reacted so strongly to Brady's press conference — Mark Brunell did not expect to see his name trending on Twitter last Thursday afternoon. Heck, given Super Bowl 49 was still nearly two weeks away and most of the NFL head coaching openings had already been filled, Brunell anticipated his afternoon would be very light on NFL news.

Deflategate headlines showcase best of New York tabloids — You think the New York City tabloids are having fun with the Deflategate controversy? Oh, you bet they are. Mix one part controversy (allegations that the Patriots intentionally tampered with their game balls during their AFC Championship Game win over the Colts), one part rivalry (it involves a Boston sports team), one part absurdity (the repeated use of the word "balls" during Tom Brady's press conference) and one part editorial creativity, and you have a formula for newspaper magic.

John Biever, Walter Iooss, Mickey Palmer, Tony Tomsic: The four photographers to shoot every Super Bowl — John Biever. Walter Iooss. Mickey Palmer. Tony Tomsic. Unless you are a hardcore sports fan -- or a fan of SI's swimsuit issue, in Iooss' case -- the names above are unlikely to be very familiar to you. But this quartet of men share an amazing sports streak: They are the only photographers to shoot all 48 Super Bowl games.

Super Bowl: Journalists who have covered every NFL title game reflect — His back hurts on most days, plus there's the two herniated disks, hearing aids in both ears and the cataract surgery on both eyes. But, hell, no one reaches 86 without a little body work and Jerry Green figures he fell into a bucket of magic dust given how good he feels.

What's next for Greg Anthony at CBS, Turner in wake of arrest? — Around dinner time on Friday night, the upper management for CBS Sports and Turner Sports learned that basketball broadcaster Greg Anthony had been arrested inside a room at a hotel in downtown Washington, D.C., as part of an undercover operation targeting prostitution. Obviously, it was shocking news for both networks.

Kobe Bryant could be the next Charles Barkley, CBS keeps NFL coverage with Thursday Night Football — If Charles Barkley is serious about leaving sports broadcasting when his current contract with Turner Sports expires in 2016 (the prediction in this space is that he will ultimately end up extending his stay with Turner) the network needs to think about a succession plan.

Troy Aikman talks broadcasting, Cowboys' future — "I've now been broadcasting longer than I played and I feel like I'm just beginning to get it a little bit," said Fox NFL analyst Troy Aikman, who completes his 13th NFL season with Fox this Sunday in Seattle when he calls the NFC Championship (kickoff is 3:05 p.m.

ESPN's coverage of the College Football Playoff National Championship provided plenty of viewing options for every consumer — Smart sports television exists, and I have seen it. I saw it Monday when ESPN once again provided Megacast coverage for the college football national championship.
