For 15 minutes a day, Tim Frazier, Penn State's senior point guard, finds a quiet place, switches on a podcast, and meditates. Along with his teammates, Frazier, the team's all-time leader in assists, has found that practicing mindfulness meditation - focusing on the breath with his eyes closed and becoming aware of his thoughts without judging them - has amped up his performance on the court. "The game moves so fast, it's hard to focus on the here and now," said Frazier, who is pretty fleet of foot himself.

Longtime Eagles cornerback Bobby Taylor yesterday was released by the Seattle Seahawks. Taylor was drafted in the second round by the Eagles in 1995 and played for them nine seasons. He left as a free agent after the 2003 season, signing a 4-year, $11.3 million deal with Seattle. Waiting until at least June 1 to release Taylor allows the remaining $2.25 million from his signing bonus to count against the salary cap next year instead of this year.

Former Eagles Pro Bowl fullback Leonard Weaver will sign a one-day contract and officially announce his retirement with the team on Tuesday at 1 p.m. Weaver earned a Pro Bowl invitation and Associated Press all-pro honors in 2009, his first season with the Eagles, after leading all NFL fullbacks in rushing attempts (70) and yards (323) to go along with four touchdowns (two rushing, two receiving). He suffered a career-ending knee injury in 2010. Originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Seattle Seahawks in 2005, Weaver played in 63 games (19 starts)

Let's begin with an assumption that becomes more and more reasonable as each day passes and more sources reveal more information and insight: The Eagles are preparing to give DeSean Jackson the full Pontius Pilate treatment. That the Eagles will either trade or release Jackson appears a fait accompli, and whenever an NFL team is considering washing its hands of a wide receiver as prolific and talented as Jackson - and in the prime of his career, no less - questions follow. Jackson is 27, and he's coming off what was statistically his best season: 82 catches, 1,332 yards, nine touchdowns.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - A slip of the tongue gave away Atlanta coach Mike Smith's focus. Smith was just starting his review Monday of the Falcons' 30-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC divisional playoffs when it became clear his thoughts were on this week's NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. "We knew the San Francisco Forty ... excuse me, the Seattle Seahawks, were a very good football team and they showed a lot of resiliency," Smith said before smiling after catching his verbal miscue.

RENTON, Wash. - Terrell Owens NFL return lasted less than 3 weeks. Owens tweeted on Sunday that he is no longer a member of the Seattle Seahawks, part of the league-mandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players. The 38-year-old posted a message on his Twitter account shortly before 11 a.m. PDT that he had been released. "I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver. " Owens signed a 1-year deal with Seattle on Aug. 7, following a sterling workout that had coaches and Seahawks staff raving about how good he looked for having not played an NFL game in more than 18 months.

CHARLES BARKLEY is the best. The former Sixer, who is now an NBA commentator for TNT, got off a great line at the expense of Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. while reporting on highlights from the Warriors-Pacers game on Monday night. It was recently revealed that in November a woman told police she saw Winslow "pleasuring himself" while in his SUV in a Target parking lot in East Hanover Township, N.J. Police responded and arrested Winslow for possession of synthetic marijuana.

SAN FRANCISCO - Delanie Walker caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith, Frank Gore rushed for 131 yards and the 49ers took defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 13-6, Thursday night to take over first place in the NFC West. Walker ran over the middle, took the pass from Smith and scampered just inside to the left pylon for a touchdown in the third quarter. What a fitting turnaround for the tight end, who broke his jaw in two places in a Week 16 win at Seattle last season when he took a knee to the face from linebacker Leroy Hill and didn't return until the NFC Championship Game.

SEATTLE - Russell Wilson threw a disputed 24-yard touchdown to Golden Tate on the final play of the game, and the Seattle Seahawks rallied to beat the Green Bay Packers, 14-12, on Monday night in a controversial ending. Wilson scrambled from the pocket and threw to the corner of the end zone as time expired. Tate shoved Green Bay's Sam Shields out of the way, then wrestled with M.D. Jennings for possession. It was ruled on the field as a touchdown and after a lengthy review, referee Wayne Elliott came out from under the hood and announced "the ruling on the field stands" as CenturyLink Field erupted in celebration.

WE SEARCH for lessons after Super Bowls because there are no more games to watch and we must do something with our time (between sessions of snow shoveling). We search for patterns, or road maps, or recipes for success - and coincidence, causation and funny bounces of the ball be damned. If the result does not fit on a bumper sticker, your search has not succeeded. And so, you're seeing a lot of this in the days since the Seattle Seahawks dismantled the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 48. This: Defense wins championships.

NEW YORK - What were the lessons of Super Bowl XLVIII for the Eagles? It's kind of hard to ignore the fact that the Seattle Seahawks are young and deep and aren't going anywhere as an NFC power. Yeah, it's been 9 years since an NFL champion repeated, but Seattle looms as a huge obstacle in Chip Kelly's path, next season and beyond. The 43-8 Super Bowl dismemberment of the Denver Broncos and the league's No. 1 all-time offense seemed to underscore that the NFC is where the power is these days, especially the NFC West, where San Francisco nearly defeated the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, and Arizona missed the playoffs at 10-6.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It took 12 seconds for Percy Harvin to validate the investment the Seattle Seahawks made in him and the six months of patience they showed in him. Harvin collected the opening kickoff in the second half of the Seahawks' 43-8 Super Bowl win over the Denver Broncos after one bounce and raced for an 87-yard touchdown. Trailing by 22-0 at halftime, the Broncos needed a strong third quarter to have any chance, but Harvin ensured that the Seahawks maintained dominance of Sunday's Super Bowl with his electrifying return.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The myopia of the moment suggests that Peyton Manning is a choker and nothing more, and in the hard glare of what happened here Sunday in Super Bowl XLVIII, it is indeed difficult to see anything beyond what's right in front of us: a 43-8 Seattle Seahawks victory and, after his finest season, the worst night of Manning's football life. Here he was, with an opportunity to win a second Super Bowl, to solidify himself as the greatest quarterback of not just his generation but any before his. And as the Denver Broncos' offensive line collapsed against a defense faster and fiercer than any the AFC had presented this season, Manning crumbled, too. He had compiled statistics so otherworldly during the regular season - 5,477 passing yards, 55 touchdowns, a 68.3 completion percentage - and had played so well in besting his nemeses, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, in the AFC championship game.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Turned out, everybody spent the last 2 weeks focused on the wrong legacy. The Seattle Seahawks' 2013 defense was the first in the NFL to lead the league in fewest yards allowed, fewest points allowed and most turnovers forced since the 1985 Bears. If memory serves, the 1985 Bears won the Super Bowl rather handily. In fact, their frolic past the Patriots looked a lot like last night's Super Bowl XLVIII, a 43-8 Seattle victory that was not as close as the final score.

The Super Bowl meeting between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, as you have no doubt heard, matches the highest-scoring offense in the NFL against the defense that allowed the fewest points this season. It is also a matchup between the offense that gained the most yards and the defense that allowed the fewest yards. In the history of the Super Bowl era, those two things have never been the case before in the same game. So, yes, Peyton Manning's offense vs., for want of a better figurehead, Richard Sherman's defense, is the story line that makes the most sense and has garnered the most attention.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Kam Chancellor did an innocuous radio interview two years ago, never knowing what it would spawn. Asked to describe the style of play of the Seattle Seahawks secondary, the safety said the defenders "lay the boom" on opponents. Fans suggested nicknames off the expression, and Chancellor scanned the replies on Twitter. One fan came up with "Legion of Boom" - similar to the Flyers' famed "Legion of Doom" line from the 1990s. Chancellor thought the nickname was catchy.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Super Bowl, a game that comes annually bedecked with superlatives and firsts, has new ones attached to it this year: America's biggest sporting event will be bigger than ever. More Americans are expected to watch it on TV than the 164 million who did last year, and that was half the country. The commercials they will watch will be the most expensive ever - $4 million for 30 seconds. The game will also be watched in 198 countries this year, up from 185 in 2013.
