A: It does. That turnover at the goal line, man. I’ll take that one. I’ll take it. It was critical. … That would have put us up [21-14]. Man. Man. … So I’ll never be like, ‘Oh, [Brett] Favre threw that interception that cost us the game.’ I don’t say that. Because we as a team, especially offensively, we gave that one away. And it [stinks] so much. Because we should have beat the [tar] out of them. We should have. We should have shattered New Orleans that day. If you want to look at it on paper, you’d be like, “God! Dog! This game wasn’t close. How much did Minnesota win by?” Well, they lost.

Q: Do you have the appreciation for how close you were to the Super Bowl and how hard it is to get back?

A: It’s funny. I was talking the other day about it. Man, that feeling. Being down there in New Orleans, getting ready for that game, one game away from the Super Bowl. It can’t be described, man. You have to be in that moment and experience it. And it feels like it’s been so long. I’m desperate, man. I’m desperate to get back there.
