Don't kid yourself—everything's a competition. Even Super Bowl Media Day.
We feel safe declaring Richard Sherman the overall winner. Although he played it cool Tuesday, no doubt he drew the most attention and has an ingenious plan brewing.
Here's how the rest of the day played out.
By limiting his media session to 6 minutes and 20 seconds, Lynch wins the I Don't Give a [Bleep] award. Plus he avoid some of the weirder "reporters" at Media Day. No loss there.
Peyton Manning said he didn't create the "Omaha" audible, adding that it was part of the Denver offense before he arrived. Time for Cutty to snag some back pay. Er, uh, money for charity.

On Monday, he called the idea of a cold-weather Super Bowl "stupid." Well, Media Day was held INDOORS at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. Victory!
