What Does It Feel Like to Lose the Super Bowl? NFC Champion Delanie Walker Answers

Answer by Delanie Walker, NFC Champion with San Francisco 49ers (2012)

It's probably the worst feeling ever. It's terrible. I was upset, and I cried a little bit, and I don't cry too much, but losing the Super Bowl and seeing purple and black confetti go down and all the Ravens fans rush the field... It hurts. It really does hurt when you're five yards from the end zone and you lose a game that way. It's terrible.

You dream about things like that. You have nightmares about things like that, you not scoring a touchdown on the five yard line. When you think about it, it still hurts. People still talk about the calls that could have been made.

To be truthful with you, I hate to see that. I hate to see our team lose and another team win. But it happens.
