This week, each team gets 54 footballs — many are given to charity after brief game usage — and all of them will be taken into custody by the NFL on Friday after the Seahawks and Patriots have prepared them.The footballs will be inspected by Vinovich three hours before kickoff, and Blandino said there will be added security because of the environment we are in for this game.It will not quite be like (protecting) the Stanley Cup, but there will be added security, he said.Bears head equipment manager Tony Medlin will be charged with guarding the footballs from Friday until he brings them to the stadium for Vinovich to inspect.Just before kickoff, the footballs will be given to ball boys working the game.

The league will consult with the manufacturer, Wilson, about the range of air pressure during the off-season.Many of the current procedures were put in place years ago because the league found footballs were being manipulated for the kicking game. Thus, the K-balls that are used only for special teams were introduced to avoid over inflation that helped with the lift on kicks.Blandino understands the furor that has surrounded the deflation issue.Its something thats a good story, he admitted.
