EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- This Super Bowl has just about everything a fan, a player, a coach -- and certainly a league -- could ask for. Denvers record-setting offence versus Seattles relentlessly stingy defence. Coaches who actually smile and think football should be fun. A wintry setting, and the best two teams in the NFL. You can watch coverage of the game beginning on CTV at 2pm et/ 11am pt. Also take part in TSN.cas Super Bowl live chat during the game starting at 6:30pm et/3:30 pt. "Its very special to be here," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said of Sundays big game. "Look at this event that our players are having to take part of. The game, the matchup, the culmination of the season, all of this is just extraordinary." This Super Bowl could also have a profound effect on the immediate future of pro football. It may be a referendum on whether the NFLs showpiece event should ever again be held outdoors in a cold-weather city. But more likely is it being a strong indicator about the future of the quarterback position. The game will feature the classic pocket passer emblematic of the old guard -- Denvers veteran Peyton Manning, who has had an extraordinarily prolific season. Against him is Seattles quick-footed, quick-witted scrambler Russell Wilson, who represents the new guard along with the likes of Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton, even Andrew Luck. Seattles miserly defence wants to force Manning into uncomfortable territory, which means anywhere outside the passing pocket. Denvers defence will be intent on giving Wilson a taste of claustrophobia by keeping him hemmed in the pocket. Both QB approaches work for their offences, or else these two teams wouldnt each be 15-3, top seeds in their conferences and facing off for the championship. The quarterback differences -- aside from age, time of service in the pros, or even their height -- Manning is about 15 centimetres (six inches) taller than Wilson -- make this Super Bowl even more intriguing. There will always be a place in anyones starting lineup for a Peyton Manning, who deserves strong consideration in the debate about the greatest quarterback in history, regardless of whether he adds a second Super Bowl ring on Sunday. Teams construct their offence around a talent like that. Whether most teams will stick with convention or choose mobile, creative and elusive passers such as Wilson wont be decided by who wins at the Meadowlands. But it could play a significant role. "As a talent evaluator for college and even free agency, the toughest thing to evaluate is process," Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp said. "Can the guy process in the pocket during the heat of battle?" Everyone knows Manning has had that skill throughout his career, and Wilson has provided strong evidence in his two NFL seasons that hes got it, too. "Peyton might be one of the best Ive ever been around that can process, Okay, Ive got these tools to use, and in 10 seconds Ive got to make a decision, and execute in less than four," Knapp added. Wilsons multi-faceted abilities on the field might differ in method to Mannings, but Carroll sees many similarities off the playing field. "Hes an incredible competitor in every way," Carroll said of his quarterback, who at 25 is 12 years younger than Manning. "In preparation, in game day, hes the epitome of what you want in your competitor. Hes got tremendous work habits. Hes got extraordinary athleticism. Hes got a general all-around savvy that allows him to make great decisions under pressure. "Hes extremely confident, too, so no matter what is going on, hes not going to waver in his focus and ability to handle things." Manning believes elements of all styles will always be in demand. "I could describe the perfect quarterback. Take a little piece of everybody," he said. "Take John Elways arm, Dan Marinos release, maybe Troy Aikmans dropback, Brett Favres scrambling ability, Joe Montanas two-minute poise and, naturally, my speed." After the laughter stopped, Manning continued: "I could take a piece of everyone, of some of my favourite quarterbacks, and I could take 30 traits from different guys, and put them in that perfect quarterback." But will that perfect QB in years to come feature more of Manning and his mould or of Wilson and his ilk? Sundays game could provide a glimpse into that future.

Napoli hit two home runs, Jonny Gomes and prized rookie Xander Bogaerts also connected, and the Red Sox kept up their dizzying scoring spree at Yankee Stadium by bashing New York 13-9 Saturday for a fifth straight win.Manchester United are reportedly set to scout Vancouver Whitecaps forward Alphonso Davies, but who is the 15-year-old Canadian sensation taking the MLS by storm? Davies rapid rise has seen him shatter records at every stage of his progression through the Whitecaps, and now, with just eight MLS appearances under his belt, United have apparently been perked.So, following reports United have instructed their USA scout Jorge Alvial to take a closer look, heres what you need to know about Davies: FACTFILEName: Alphonso DaviesAge: 15 (Born November 2, 2000)Position: Forward/midfielderClub: Vancouver WhitecapsBirthplace: Monrovia, LiberiaInternational caps: Canada U15s - 3, U18s - 1, U20s - 1BACKGROUNDLiberia-born Davies received his footballing education in Edmonton, Alberta, where he was raised following his familys migration to Canada. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. At a young age he featured for local sides Edmonton Internationals and Edmonton Strikers before his talents sparked the interest of Vancouvers youth academy and development system, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Residency.It was there where Davies flourished, scoring six goals in 12 outings for the clubs development side at U16 level before hitting three goals in four appearances for the U18s.He then received international recognition with three call-ups to Canadas U15 team and one for the U18s. He was also drafted into the U20 squad in March and started Canadas 2-1 victory over England in Doncaster. Marcus Rashford and Alphonso Davies battle for possession in Canada U20s 2-1 victory over England U20s in March His performances for club and country resulted in him being fast-tracked to the first-team, and he was handed his debut as a substitute in the Canadian Championship semi-final against Ottawa Fury.Davies went on to make history in the return leg, becoming the youngest starter in Whitecaps history at 15. Regular outings in the United Soccer League for Whitecaps FC 2 soon followed, as too did another historic moment as his goal against LA Galaxy II saw him become the youngest player to score in the division.On July 15, Davies rise could not be ignored anymore and he was handed a three-year deal with the Whitecaps as a Homegrown Player, making him the youngest current MLS player and third-youngest in the leagues history.He made his MLS debut the next day, coming off the bench to replace Nicolas Mezquida for the final 13 minutes of the Whitecaps 2-2 draw with Orlando City.

(Video courtesy of After six substitute appearances under manager Carl Robinson, Davies has since gone on to start the Whitecaps last two MLS fixtures - against Colorado Rapids and Seattle Sounders, respectively.STYLEOperating predominantly on the left, Davies is a direct footballer who does not hesitate to take the game to the opposition. Keen to utilise his pace, he is known for his marauding runs from deep, often leaving a trail of defenders lying in his wake.ddddddddddddDavies physical stature and athleticism belies his age and has seen him comfortably hold his own with each step up in standard. Spurs fourth, United fifth? Charlie Nicholas offers his Premier League predictions Although he is yet to find the net in MLS competition, Davies was a ruthless finisher at youth level, where he developed a penchant for acrobatic celebrations.However, his inability to replicate his goal-scoring exploits may pay much to his current role in the Vancouver team, where his versatility across a number of positions has been utilised by manager Robinson.Despite this, Davies was still able to have an impact in his latest outing where his electric pace earned Vancouver a penalty in their 2-1 defeat to Seattle. The 15-year-old Alphonso Davies, a rumoured Manchester United target, showed exactly what hes capable of in Vancouvers defeat to Seattle. WHAT THEY SAIDAlphonso is a bright young player who has earned this opportunity, Vancouver manager Carl Robinson said, after handing him a new contract.He still has a lot of hard work ahead of him, but at this point in time we felt this was the best move for his development and for the club.This is another great example of our player pathway and we hope he will be the first of many players to make the next step. David Villa and Jozy Altidore feature in the latest MLS Goals of the Week WOULD HE FIT IN?On first sight, Davies attributes are perfectly suited to the style of football synonymous with Manchester United. And, given the inherent lack of out and out wingers at Old Trafford, its understandable why a player of Davies potential would come to the clubs attention.Of course, the gulf in class between the MLS and Premier League would rule out an immediate switch from Vancouver to Manchester, but having displayed the desire and will to improve at every stage of his career, whod bet against Davies flourishing if he were to take his next substantial step up?
