“Once you get to that level, it’s more of a job,” he says. “You’re not worrying about bragging rights so much as you’re worrying about keeping your job. It’s your job to go out and win. But, you also want to make your city proud.”
After the Steelers fell in Super Bowl XXX, Holliday says even though he had some regrets, he doesn’t regret the memory.
“There was a lot of disappointment, but we also just kept in mind that we might get another opportunity. That never happened, but it’s something that you always cherish, and it’s a big part of my life now.
And now that Holliday is several years removed from the NFL, he says he plans to spend Super Bowl Sunday the same way as the average American.
