Special Super Bowl XLIII Edition (Feb 1, 2009)
Quotable from NFL GameDay Final on NFL Network
“It was all the 10 other guys that got me to the other end. There were four or five blocks that helped me get to the endzone.” – Steelers LB James Harrison on his Super Bowl record 100-yard interception for a touchdown.
“I told the guys – all the hard work you guys put in all year means nothing if we don’t win this. I’m really proud of the way the line stepped up and did it.” – Ben Roethlisberger on the Steelers Super Bowl XLIII win
“I tried to make it like a regular game, you never can really make it like that, but I did feel better out there.” – Roethlisberger on his attitude going into Super Bowl XLIII
“He was poised all week long.” – Warren Sapp on why he picked Santonio Holmes as the Super Bowl XLIII MVP on NFL GameDay Morning
“It played out the way I envisioned it playing out.” – Mike Tomlin on the Steelers’ win
“When you’re put in a position of leadership, and you watch the personal sacrifice where people put aside their personal agendas and do what you ask them to do, you’re so happy for them.” — Tomlin on his reaction to the win as a coach
“I don’t play the pressure game. I just embrace those moments and enjoy them. My kids are taken care of. We’re financially stable when others aren’t – that’s pressure to me.” — Tomlin on President Obama picking the Steelers to win
“I know how to perform in big games.” – Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes on winning a high school championship, National Championship in college and now a Super Bowl ring.
“I don’t think we’ll ever get over it. We were two minutes away from being World Champions, but we’re not.” – Kurt Warner
“I thought I had two-on-two coverage and thought I had a crease for Anquan. I tried to throw it in there, but Harrison jumped in, made the catch had a tremendous return.” – Warner on Harrison’s interception for a touchdown
“There’s a chance. I don’t know right now.” – Warner on whether or not he’s played his last game.
“I hope he hasn’t played his last game, he’s still got it. He has the three best passing performances in a Super Bowl and tonight he didn’t dispel any notion that he’ll be a consideration for a place in Canton one day. He’s got my vote.” – Steve Mariucci on Kurt Warner
“If the Bidwell family doesn’t make a commitment to him in the next week, then we’ll understand why they haven’t won a title.” — Sapp on Kurt Warner
