Steelers get first chance to celebrate

A podium was set up at midfield of Raymond James Stadium in a matter of minutes under a flurry of confetti.

As the Steelers celebrated their Super Bowl win around the podium, several gave a few remarks, including majority owner Dan Rooney, coach Mike Tomlin, QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Santonio Holmes.

“At the end of the day, Steeler football is 60 minutes,” Tomlin said of the comeback against the Cardinals.

Holmes was asked if Roethlisberger said anything to him in the huddle on the final drive. Holmes said he was the one who said something to Roethlisberger.

“I said to him that I wanted to be the guy who would make a play for this team,” Holmes said.

The stadium is slowly emptying out, but Steelers fans have congregated into the bottom few rows off the Pittsburgh sideline, where a few of the players are still celebrating.
