Sharing memories from Super Bowl XL
"The season was a whirlwind, playing on special teams. To go through the experience and the games themselves, against the Bengals Carson Palmer goes down, Indianapolis that wild game and we go to Denver and play great. They to go back home to Jerome's (Bettis) hometown of Detroit and come up with a tough fought game, victory for the world championship was something tough to beat."
Linebacker James Farrior:
"We were on the verge of not making the playoffs. We were having a great season leading up to that, coming off a 15-1 the year before. Everyone thought things were good and then we hit that three-game losing streak and that shook everybody up. It brought us closer together. Once we had our backs against the wall you knew if we lost another game it would be over, that is when we played different, a lot better.
"It was a magical journey. Anytime you win a Super Bowl it's going to be a magical journey. Everything from the beginning of the season when we started off well, to where we hit a low point in the season when we didn't think we were going to make the playoffs, and then we had some dramatic games in the playoffs and the Super Bowl. The culmination of all of those things was special."
