1. What interests you most about Super Bowl XLVI?
2. A concerning matchup -- Giants WRs vs. Patriots secondary. How might the Patriots match up?
3. Balancing the up-temp offense vs. not playing into the attacking strength of the Giants' defense.
4. Commitment to the run and its importance.
5. Bill O'Brien and his role as offensive coordinator while balancing Penn State head coaching duties.
6. Stevan Ridley, Sebastian Vollmer and Chad Ochocinco -- will they be active for the Super Bowl?
