Rodney Harrison has been asked many times over the past couple of weeks about the Patriots who remain from the 2007 team downplaying the revenge factor in Super Bowl XLVI.
He consistently has dismissed that notion as nonsense. Actually, he said, "It's crap," but I'm not clear on whether I'm allowed to use that word in the blog.
Anyway, here's what else he said:
"If you played on that 2007 team and had an opportunity to go 16-0 and do something no one has ever done in the National Football League, then an opportunity to go 19-0, and to lose that game, of course, you’re devastated.
"I carried the burden for months, the humiliation . . . I've accomplished a lot in my career but that was the lowest point in my career because I felt I let so many people down. But to have an opportunity to make history, if you’re a competitive person yes, you’re thinking about that."
