For the Pittsburgh Steelers, watching the New England Patriots hoist the Lombardi trophy had to be a tough pill to swallow. However, some might find some solace in knowing the team who knocked the black and gold out of the playoffs, ended up winning the whole tournament.
Either way, while some players chose not to watch the Super Bowl, several took to Twitter to give their opinions on the game. We take a look at some of those reactions from current, and former, players.
