NFL Super Bowl Opening Night

Feb 2, 2016 1:03 PM by David McVicker

We are less than a week from super bowl 50 in Santa Clara and the whoopla is just getting under way.

Action News Now sports reporter Ross Field spent Monday afternoon in San Jose for what was formerly known as super bowl media day, but has now been rebranded as super bowl opening night.

And as he showed us... anything goes.

There was a super hero, former NFL head coach Herm Edwards, a Bronco’s leprechaun and, as most anticipated, two teams vying for the super bowl title.

The teams spent the afternoon speaking to media about everything, on and off the field.

Denver offensive lineman Ryan Clady said he can’t wait to get on the field.

“I’m excited,” he said. “It’s going to be a great game. I’m excited for the outcome. I want to get a ring”

Panthers offensive linemen Mike Remmers said it’s been a great experience so far.

“It’s just been completely unbelievable so far,” he said. “I couldn’t have even dreamed of this growing up.”

Even the North State had representation in Santa Clara. Red Bluff native Clancy Barone, offensive line coach for the Denver Broncos was in the house.

He said he’s telling his players it’s just another game.

“You can’t let the game become too big,” he said.

Denver head coach Gary Kubiak had nothing but praises for Barone.

“Clancy’s come up the right way,” he said “He’s worked hard and he’s busted his tail off (to get here).”

We wanted to know the secret everyone’s been talking about. What does “Omaha” mean?

“Omaha means I’m going to the Madison Bear after the game for a burger,” he said. “But seriously, it’s classified.”

Denver will face off against Carolina Sunday at 3:30 p.m.
