    Apparently Ines Sainz felt comfortable enough to cover the Super Bowl for her home network, TV Azteca, in Mexico since the New York Jets failed to qualify

    Oh, sorry, was that a bit cold? Yeah, well, so am I today.

    The woman who became something of a lightning rod after her experience in the Jets locker room and resulting claims of harassment turned up today for Super Bowl media day when the NFL obliges players and coaches to sit through all manner of silly, ill-informed, and spacey questions from national and international reporters. They might even field a legitimate question or two if they’re lucky and Randy Galloway is nowhere in the vicinity.

    The reporting tables, though, were turned today on Sainz when NBCDFW’s Matt Barrie asked her for her thoughts on the merits and detriments of the 3-4 defense and the zone blitz.

    She declined to answer specifically citing a language barrier. No word on whether or not Barrie tried to act out the defensive schemes in a Charades-like fashion. See, some newsmen demonstrate a little decorum.

    So, welcome to Dallas, Ines, it’s perfectly safe and accepting here. Well, mostly.
