(on the feeling of playing in a Super Bowl) “It feels like a dream come true. It feels great to be here. We always dream about getting here but now we’re finally here.”


(on if he’s flying in any family to Louisiana) “We are flying a lot of family here, about 20 of them. It was expensive to fly them from Hawaii, but we’re making it happen.”


(on who his favorite players to watch were while growing up) “My favorite player to watch growing up was Joe Montana. Then when I got to college, it was always Ray Lewis, because I’m a defensive guy. It’s been a dream come true to be able to play with those guys now.”


(on his thoughts about the organization’s leadership) “Baltimore has always been a great organization. They’ve just gotten better as far as keeping the guys close and pushing the guys to become better players. Bringing in the right players and the right coaches to get things done.”


(on if the organization has made a point of bringing in players who play well together) “I think so. The way I feel about our defense is we have guys who really mesh well together. With all the injuries that we went through, with key guys getting injured, the coaches did a good job of putting the right guys in at the right time, just moving guys around. I don’t think anyone could have done a better job than the coach did, as far as finding the right rookie guy to move up to play this position and in another game, moving him around. I think they’ve done a really great job of doing that.”
