Last night’s edition of NBC SportsTalk included a visit from the man who’ll host NBC’s coverage of Super Bowl XLVI.

Bob Costas joined Russ Thaler, Peter King, and me to talk about a variety of issues relating to the game specifically and “the game” generally.

You should have seen the show live.  And you should have seen the re-air.

If you didn’t, that’s fine. But now there’s no excuse.  All you have to do is click the button below to see and hear Bob’s takes on postseason overtime, celebrations that cost a team field position, the potential impact of Super Bowl XLVI on Eli Manning’s legacy, and more.

You’ll also see and hear plenty more from Bob throughout the week, including the debut of Costas Tonight:  Live from the Super Bowl on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET, on the new NBC Sports Network.

  1. I have been arguing Bob’s point for years. Let offenses be offenses and similarly defenses. A team should play to its strengths and we get to watch football the way it’s meant to be played.

    Regarding King’s comment about other team not touching ball in 10 minutes? That’s absurd. We’ve seen teams drive for almost a whole quarter or win the battle of possession in a game and that gets praised. Nobody says that the other team needed more time.

    Please just implement this!

  2. I like Bob’s, not Peter’s. Peter’s way is too much of an advantage to the team that loses the coin flip. Team 1 punts if it’s 4th and 7 on the 23 yard line whereas if Team 1 scores a touchdown, then team two goes for it on 4th and 7 on the 23. That’s not fair, that’s the ‘gimicky’ college ot rule.
