Lakewood's Jermaine Kearse has again made the big time. One week after his catch in overtime won the NFC title for Seattle, Kearse is one of six Seahawks who will be the first players to speak to the media upon the NFC champions' arrival tomorrow afternoon in Phoenix for Super Bowl XLIX.
Seems like Bennett is about to become a breakout media star of Super Bowl week. The rest of the nation is about to find out what we already know: He'll say anything at any time, a lot of it highly entertaining.

I leave SeaTac tomorrow morning about the same time the team does and will be at the Arizona Grand Hotel to cover this arrival press conference. I'll be posting on the blog from Phoenix about it at this time tomorrow.
Marshawn Lynch is not one of the six on the media-availability list. Shocker.
This is a rather perfunctory appearance. The Seahawks will have another six players, or maybe some of the same ones, in a relatively lower-key availability Monday afternoon, again at their team hotel. The Patriots will not have arrived in Arizona by then; the AFC champions are due in by late Monday afternoon.
Tuesday is the annual Media Day free for all/freak show. This year's is inside at the U.S. Airways Center, the downtown Phoenix home of the NBA's Suns.
