A few weeks removed from the Super Bowl collapse in Houston, Sanu appeared on the NFL Networks’ “Good Morning Football” show to talk about the season and the game.
Sanu addressed a number of questions about the Falcons allowed a 28-3 lead slip against the New England Patriots.
About whether the 2016 Falcons will be remembered more for their offensive prowess or the historic Super Bowl loss:
"We know what we did throughout the whole season. I wouldn't say the last quarter of that game was our legacy."
About how the teams were off the field for close to an hour, during Lady Gaga’s halftime show, and how that might have affected the Falcons’ rhythm:
“Halftime is only like 15 minutes, and when you’re not on the field for like an hour, it’s just like going to work out — like a great workout, and you go sit on the couch for an hour and then try to start working out again.”
About about the players’ reaction to the play calling — run vs. pass — in the fourth quarter:
“The thought crossed your mind, but as a player you’re going to do what the coach wants you to do.”
About how he is still coping with the loss:
“It’s gotten better. There are times I wake up and ... [snaps fingers] damn!”
