EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- This Super Bowl has just about everything a fan, a player, a coach -- and certainly a league -- could ask for. Denvers record-setting offence versus Seattles relentlessly stingy defence. Coaches who actually smile and think football should be fun. A wintry setting, and the best two teams in the NFL. You can watch coverage of the game beginning on CTV at 2pm et/ 11am pt. Also take part in TSN.cas Super Bowl live chat during the game starting at 6:30pm et/3:30 pt. "Its very special to be here," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said of Sundays big game. "Look at this event that our players are having to take part of. The game, the matchup, the culmination of the season, all of this is just extraordinary." This Super Bowl could also have a profound effect on the immediate future of pro football. It may be a referendum on whether the NFLs showpiece event should ever again be held outdoors in a cold-weather city. But more likely is it being a strong indicator about the future of the quarterback position. The game will feature the classic pocket passer emblematic of the old guard -- Denvers veteran Peyton Manning, who has had an extraordinarily prolific season. Against him is Seattles quick-footed, quick-witted scrambler Russell Wilson, who represents the new guard along with the likes of Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton, even Andrew Luck. Seattles miserly defence wants to force Manning into uncomfortable territory, which means anywhere outside the passing pocket. Denvers defence will be intent on giving Wilson a taste of claustrophobia by keeping him hemmed in the pocket. Both QB approaches work for their offences, or else these two teams wouldnt each be 15-3, top seeds in their conferences and facing off for the championship. The quarterback differences -- aside from age, time of service in the pros, or even their height -- Manning is about 15 centimetres (six inches) taller than Wilson -- make this Super Bowl even more intriguing. There will always be a place in anyones starting lineup for a Peyton Manning, who deserves strong consideration in the debate about the greatest quarterback in history, regardless of whether he adds a second Super Bowl ring on Sunday. Teams construct their offence around a talent like that. Whether most teams will stick with convention or choose mobile, creative and elusive passers such as Wilson wont be decided by who wins at the Meadowlands. But it could play a significant role. "As a talent evaluator for college and even free agency, the toughest thing to evaluate is process," Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp said. "Can the guy process in the pocket during the heat of battle?" Everyone knows Manning has had that skill throughout his career, and Wilson has provided strong evidence in his two NFL seasons that hes got it, too. "Peyton might be one of the best Ive ever been around that can process, Okay, Ive got these tools to use, and in 10 seconds Ive got to make a decision, and execute in less than four," Knapp added. Wilsons multi-faceted abilities on the field might differ in method to Mannings, but Carroll sees many similarities off the playing field. "Hes an incredible competitor in every way," Carroll said of his quarterback, who at 25 is 12 years younger than Manning. "In preparation, in game day, hes the epitome of what you want in your competitor. Hes got tremendous work habits. Hes got extraordinary athleticism. Hes got a general all-around savvy that allows him to make great decisions under pressure. "Hes extremely confident, too, so no matter what is going on, hes not going to waver in his focus and ability to handle things." Manning believes elements of all styles will always be in demand. "I could describe the perfect quarterback. Take a little piece of everybody," he said. "Take John Elways arm, Dan Marinos release, maybe Troy Aikmans dropback, Brett Favres scrambling ability, Joe Montanas two-minute poise and, naturally, my speed." After the laughter stopped, Manning continued: "I could take a piece of everyone, of some of my favourite quarterbacks, and I could take 30 traits from different guys, and put them in that perfect quarterback." But will that perfect QB in years to come feature more of Manning and his mould or of Wilson and his ilk? Sundays game could provide a glimpse into that future. Carlton Fisk Jersey .

Hardy drove in a run for the Orioles, who bounced back from an 8-4 loss in the series opener on Friday. Fresh off the 15-day disabled list, Derrek Lee went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Jake Arrieta (7-3) gave up three runs on five hits over six innings to pick up the win. CFL training camps opened Sunday amid the uncertainty of a potential players strike. Veterans reported for the start of two-a-day workouts three days after negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement broke down for the second time in as many weeks. The old deal expired at midnight ET on Thursday, the two sides havent met since and have no new talks scheduled. The CFL Players Association has mailed strike ballots to its members but Alberta labour laws could push the start of a strike into next week. For defensive back Eric Fraser, a union rep for the expansion Ottawa Redblacks, thats a good thing. "Thats a lot of time for the (CFLPA) executive and CFL to sit back down and hammer something out," he said. "I dont think were too far away right now, but tough decisions are going to have to be made on our end and their end and hopefully we can nail something out and everyone leaves the negotiating table a little upset because they think they gave up a little too much." There has been one strike since the formation of the CFLPA in 1965. That was in 74 when a new agreement was reached during training camp without the loss of regular-season games. The 2014 regular season is scheduled to kick off June 26. Despite the huge cloud hanging over the league, Fraser is confident a deal will be reached. "I have 100 per cent confidence there would be no lockout or strike like (2012 in the NHL) in the CFL," he said. "You just cant do it. "A good deal is going to get done here and I think thats positive." The CFL and players met for 17 hours over two days last week but money remains a major stumbling block after the league signed a five-year TV deal with TSN said to be worth a whopping $42 million annually this off-season. That deal alone would reportedly net teams an extra $2.7 million in 2014. The CFLPA is looking for the salary cap -- which was $4.4 million last year -- to increase to $5.8 million, with a $4.8 million minimum. The league has countered with a $5-million cap offer and boosting the average stipend to $96,000 from $92,917. The players have amended their revenue-sharing stance. Instead of requesting specific percentages on gate, television and sponsorship revenues, the CFLPA proposed a fixed cap for at least two years. After the second if league revenues increased by more than $12 million -- excluding the Grey Cup -- the two sides would renegotiate the cap or the CBA would be terminated at seasons end. The league would renegotiate the cap if revenues increased by $27 million or more in the third year. Cohon, who called the CFLs proposal last week its last and best, has repeatedly stated owners wont agree to any revenue-sharing offer because league revenues and profits arent enough for the model to work effectively. And that bothers veteran kiicker Paul McCallum, the B.ddddddddddddC. Lions player rep. "I dont know which way is up when (Cohon) talks sometimes," McCallum said. "All I know is the finances are what they are -- theyre black and white. "As players we just need to be treated fairly, and thats all were asking for. Were not millionaires here." For decades the CFL suffered financially, something the 44-year-old McCallum knows firsthand. But the veteran kicker feels the CFL is banking on the union cracking this time around. "To be quite honest, over my career weve sort of bent and bent and bent so I guess they think why would we not bend now," he said. "Theyre in for a rude awakening this time. "Enough is enough." Argos centre Jeff Keeping, also a member of the CFLPA executive, is glad to be playing football again but would readily replace his uniform with a suit for the resumption of contract talks. "The players are unwavering . . . we hope to get back to the negotiating table," he said. "Until then were here to play football." Veteran Ottawa quarterback Henry Burris is undeterred about the leagues labour strife but said its time the two sides resume talking. "The people that are in place saying all this stuff in the media, they need to quit all that crap and get to work and do what theyre paid to do and thats to make decisions and get this thing rectified so we can get back out here and do our jobs," he said. "For me thats the bottom line, as a senior member of the CFL, Im telling you guys Lets get this thing done, so we can get out here on the field and do our jobs because were looking forward to an amazing time here in Ottawa and we dont want nobody to spoil this party that we have planned." Toronto head coach Scott Milanovich has contingency plans for a work stoppage but says right now its business as usual. "Any practices we can get is great for the coaches, great for the players," he said. "It just makes the practices we get in even more important that we take advantage to all the minutes and reps we get." Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell and B.C. running back Andrew Harris are both pretty much taking the same approach. "Its not in my mind, its not in my control," Levi Mitchell said. "No matter what, whatever happens, the day you come back, if it does happen, youve got to be ready to play that day. Were going to come out here and compete and get better every single day and practise like nothings going on." Added Harris: "Were here to work. were here to get better. Youve just got to prepare as if everythings going great and were going to be playing." -- With files from Lisa Wallace in Ottawa, Donna Spencer in Calgary and Joshua Clipperton in Kamloops, B.C.
