Former Patriot Jarvis Green Couldn’t Sleep, Was ‘Still Shaken’ for Weeks After Super Bowl XLII Loss to Giants


January 26, 2012

The players on the losing side of a Super Bowl never completely get over the feeling of defeat. Former Patriots defensive lineman Jarvis Green know this all too well.

Green, who admits to never getting over the Patriots' loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII, is especially disappointed that the team couldn't stop Eli Manning's bomb to David Tyree that set up the game-winning score.

"When I think about that play sometimes, I think if I could have made that play, I could have been going to Disney World," Green told the Boston Herald. "I had four or five tackles and a sack already, and that would have put me over the top. That would have ended the game. I just know after that play, about three or four weeks after that, I was still really shaken."

Though the Patriots certainly don't need any extra motivation for their upcoming rematch against the Giants, none of them want to go through what Green endured after Super Bowl XLII.
