You can’t blame Steelers safety Ryan Clark for being in a foul mood. We’re still only 10 days out from Super Bowl XLV, so the loss still stings.
Clark told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh he felt one or two plays swung the entire game, even though he was quick not to disrespect the Packers, who he said made the plays necessary to win the game. Still, he’s not over it all quite yet.
“Not at all,” Clark said, per sportsradiointerviews.com. “It’s something that you think about every day because it’s not a situation you’re going to be in every year. You know, we’re not promised to be there ever again. So to be there, to lose, and to feel like you could have done things differently — a play here, a play there to help your team win the game — it’s tough.
“Had we won I probably would have started working out some time in March. I started yesterday. Because losing wants to make you get back to that podium. So it’s a tough, tough situation.”
Clark, who is the Steelers’ NFPLA representative, also had some strong opinions regarding the state of the current labor negotiations. Read the entire transcript here.
