Just want to give some props to my man Linval Joseph. The dude is a beast and an unheralded star of the D-Line that came up HUGE in the playoffs for us. The guy learned on the job this year, no doubt, but I can honestly say that the results of this every-inch-mattered, one-play-changes-everything Super Bowl VICTORY (!!) might have been different if it wasn't for the big man, #97 in the middle. The guy weighs 320+ pounds but was instrumental in pressuring the QB all game long. Even more impressive is the fact that it was against a perennial pro-bowler all-pro G in Brian Waters.
It's almost impossible to win it all without talented DTs in the middle, and Joseph was huge for us this year. Barry Cofield was great for us but Joseph has stepped in and stepped up when it counted the most. Props!!
