PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – The FAN’s Steeler beat reporter Jon Burton caught up with several players after the loss to the Packers in Super Bowl XLV.
Cornerback Ike Taylor said the Packers made enough plays to win the game and Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks at locating a ball on his throws.
Taylor thinks this team has what it takes to bounce back next year and get back to the Super Bowl, but “time will tell.”
Offensive tackle Jonathan Scott talked about the Steelers’ comeback in the second half. He liked how offensive coordinator Bruce Arians decided to start running to the ball in the second half to send a message to the defensive line.
Scott thinks this team has “too much leadership, too much fight, too much resilience” not to make it back to the Super Bowl next season.
Steelers cornerback William Gay is upbeat after the loss to the Packers. Despite losing, he is proud of the organization for overcoming adversity this season.
Being down 21-3, defensive end Ziggy Hood and the defense never had a thought of being out of the game. He said the Steelers threw everything they could at Rodgers, but he was on-point with his quick passes.
