SUPER BOWL 50: AN INTERVIEW WITH TRACY WOLFSON
26th January 2016
We asked CBS Sports Reporter and CBS Sports Network host, Tracy Wolfson a few questions leading up to Super Bowl 50.
Q: How do you see this game going? #1 offence vs #1 defence
A: I do see it that way. It’s a good thing Broncos have two weeks to prepare because Cam is a different cat. Trying to bring him down is tough. The defense came out of that game with a few injuries and will need all hands on deck vs the panthers.
Q: Do you feel the current Broncos defence could be the best ever in the NFL? Or do you have a personal favorite?
A: There have been so many greats defenses over the years. A lot of people want to say whether this one surpasses the legion of boom, the most recent of the great defenses. But they are different. I don’t like to compare, I just like to appreciate the job Wade Phillips has done and how John Elway made it his mission to put together a defense like this after getting blown out last super bowl vs that Seahawks team and that Legion of Boom.
Q: What is the key for the Broncos and Panthers going into this matchup?
A: For Broncos it comes down to pressuring Cam, keeping him in the pocket and stopping the run. Offensively, try and establish the run and limit mistakes offensively and the big plays will come.
As for Panthers, their defense is banged up but Kuekly and Norman can wreak havoc and will try to pressure Peyton and force those mistakes. They take the run away and force him to throw. As for their offense, keep doing what they’ve been doing – run the ball. Whether it’s with Stewart or Cam.
Q: Finally, do you see this as the highest point of your career to date? And are you nervous!?
A: It is definitely the pinnacle. I’ve covered a bunch of Final Fours, really big SEC Championship games, the NBA playoffs and I was part of the Super Bowl in 2012 (got on only because the lights went out). So yes, this is no doubt special and will top the list. Now let’s hope for a good, competitive game! As for the nerves. Not yet, but I’m sure before I do that first report I will have butterflies in my stomach!
Thanks to Tracy for giving us time out of her day and wish her the best of luck during CBS coverage of Super Bowl 50!
