"I wish we could have flown in at night with nobody knowing we were here, instead of having everybody cheer you on," Tuck said. "What for? Nobody wants to talk about (partying) before the Super Bowl. Everybody wants to talk about after it. If you leave this place being the winner of the 46th Super Bowl, then you can have as many parties, you can have as many pep rallies, you can do whatever you want to do after that. "Until that happens, I could care less for all the hoopla." news: Patriots' Ochocinco finally hits big stage, but as bit player
Chad Ochocinco was the last player off the Patriots' plane when the team arrived Sunday in preparation for Super Bowl XLVI. The wide receiver was alone, well behind everyone else -- a snapshot of his pecking order on a team he's surprisingly failed to enhance.

Peyton Manning is about to hijack the buildup to the Ultimate Game, thanks to the impending divorce between the icon and the franchise that happens to be hosting the spectacle.

Don’t even try to fight it: Even if Manning and Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay stop sniping at one other publicly for the next seven days, there’s too much conspicuous chest-puffing, too much intrigue and too many media folk in need of stories to avoid the inevitable.
