The guest of honor at Tuesday's Super Bowl Media Day wasn't Peyton Manning. It wasn't Drew Brees.

It wasn't even a person.

It was an ankle, specifically one belonging to Dwight Freeney.
We've heard so much about Freeney's ankle in the past few days, I'm almost missing Brett Favre retirement stories.

There's been endless debate about the status of the Colts' most famous ankle. Is it a two degree or three degree sprain? Are ligaments damaged? Torn?

I half expected Adam Schefter to report that it had been amputated, followed by Bill Polian listing Freeney as doubtful for the Super Bowl.
So, it was understandable when the world's media circled around Freeney's podium, anxiously awaiting an ankle to make an appearance.

Walking in, two things were immediately noticed about Freeney's ankle. One, it was swollen. Two, it was in a flip-flop.

Seriously? A flip-flop? Apparently Polian nixed the idea of having Freeney enter the building on roller blades.

The Colts may be playing one of the best mind games in Super Bowl history.
On one hand, Freeney's ankle was visibly swollen. With just five days away from kickoff, it's hard to think he'll have the mobility he needs to be truly effective, especially considering his injury is on his plant foot.

Freeney's teammates were being as politically correct as possible. Most talked about how Freeney is a quick healer, how he'll give it his best no matter his status. However, several players made comments suggesting that if Freeney can't go, then the Colts will adjust and people will step up.

That doesn't sound like a vote of confidence.

Ok - Play or not. IF it is a torn ligament playing on it CAN NOT be a good thing. In fact couldn't it do permanant damage??

We have to play OUR game. To hell with the mind screw - PLAY THE FRIPPIN GAME

Re: Featured Columnist Dwight Freeney: What to Take from Media Day

I have been wondering what is up with this Dwight Freeney lovefest! I guess they had to have SOMEONE to take Favre's place since he rode off into the sunset to nurse his proverbial wounds. Frankly by Sunday night, I will be ok with never hearing Brett Favre, Dwight Freeney, or PEEEATON Manning's names again!
