It amounts to a healthy dose of athlete-speak, but what else is Freeman supposed to say: I can't shake the loss and plan to gallop for less than 300 yards next season before retiring?
"Nothing," Freeman said. "No play. Even the mistake I made with the missed block. When you look at a football game, you're talking about four quarters. You're talking about the best guys against the best guys on both sides of the ball. Mistakes are going to happen. If you're perfect in the NFL, something is not right. I don't know anybody who's perfect.
"My mistake is a scar. I'm going to learn from it. I'm going to get better from that. That's how I look at it."
"It's peanuts to me. You just move on from it," Freeman said. "But until you win the Super Bowl, ain't nothing else going to feel better than winning that Super Bowl. I guarantee it. I don't care if I get 1,000 yards, 10 Pro Bowls. If I don't win that Super Bowl, I'm going to always remember that one Super Bowl we lost."
