Super Bowl Postgame Quotes:
Santonio Holmes


(on winning touchdown catch) “It was a play that we drew up that we were hoping to get open in the back of the corner. The defensive back bit up on the short route and Ben (Roethlisberger) held onto the ball long enough to get it to me.”

(on how he managed to get both feet down in the end zone on winning catch) “My feet never left the ground. All I did was extend my arms and use my toes as extra extension to catch up to the ball.”

(on play of Steelers offense) “Everything was pretty good and went smooth for us. Ben (Roethlisberger) had a couple of mistakes here and there but he’s one of those guys who knew to keep fighting and win the game for our team.”

(on what this win means to the Steelers) “We’re going down in history with one of the greatest games ever played in the Super Bowl. We finished it up the way we needed to and brought another championship back to Pittsburgh.”
