Programming note: Set up in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS -- Good morning and welcome to Super Bowl week on the NFC West blog.

I checked into my hotel near the New Orleans Convention Center early this morning and will be getting set up shortly. The first order of business will be registering at the media center and picking up credentials allowing access to the various events.

The NFC champion San Francisco 49ers will be available for interviews beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET Monday. There is nothing scheduled before then.

AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley and I are putting the finishing touches on a "Double Coverage" item that will appear on our blogs before we head over to the teams' media sessions in the afternoon.

Back in a bit with a run through some NFC West headlines. It's great to be here.
