We are Super Bowl Champions!!! I can’t begin to tell you how good it feels to finally say those words! All the hard work and effort that we have put into our team has finally paid off with the ultimate prize.
I’ve been fortunate enough to play in a Super Bowl before, but unfortunately we came up short and that was such a tough thing to swallow. To come that close, and be able to finish makes this victory even sweeter. Not to mention the last Super Bowl we played in but didn’t win was in the same University of Phoenix Stadium as this one!
I would also just like to point out how insane this game actually was as a player. On that last drive they seemed to have all the momentum, and just like that. One play and one interception later…we are the champs!
Super Bowl Sunday was actually my 31st birthday, so what an amazing gift, right? All the experiences of that week are something I will never forget. Even now just thinking about all the events from that week — Media Day to the Super Bowl Game in front of 110 million people to celebrating with my teammates to taking over the city of Boston with our parade to ESPN Champions Tour — still gives me goose bumps!
As part of the Patriots organization, we have a motto: Do Your Job!
Well, we did! Now it’s time to enjoy some time off and reflect on all the hard work it took to get us to the top before we get back together to do it all over again!
