Super Bowl Postgame Quotes:
Troy Polamalu

(on the fourth quarter) “It’s always four quarters, when you are in big games like this, especially against a quality opponent like Arizona.”

(on if there were any differences in defensive coverage on Arizona WR Larry Fitzgerald) “No, there wasn’t. We had some technique errors, as well as some mental errors. But, a great player like that is always going to find a way to make plays.”

(on if the Cardinals surprised them in any way) “Not at all.”

(on how gut-wrenching the final five minutes was) “Oh my God, I don’t know. You can’t explain it. You are seconds away from me crying in the locker room, and them being out here. That’s how amazing this game is.”

(on what happened on Arizona’s touchdown drive to take the lead) “We gave up a play. Great players like that (Fitzgerald) are going to make plays.”

(on if he had faith that his team was going to come back and score) “Now I do (laughing). Big games like this against a great opponent, you never know. Ben (Roethlisberger) did a great job today. He led the offense down the field. It’s amazing.”

(on how this Super Bowl compares with his first in Super Bowl XL) “You can never compare things that are so sweet like this. It’s amazing. I can’t believe it. Two Super Bowls – it’s amazing.”
