There's little doubt that Brian Waters is going to have a long-term home here in Kansas City when all is said and done. If the former Chiefs guard is not celebrated by the Chiefs for his long Pro Bowl-level career here in KC, then something is definitely wrong. Instead, you can expect Waters, at some point in the future, to become part of the Chiefs Hall of Honor. But before then, he's also going to have his moment as a New England Patriot -- one that's taken him to the Super Bowl for the first time and a moment he says is "unbelievable."
"I'm overjoyed," said Waters after the Patriots AFC Championship win. "This is an unbelievable deal. This is probably the most excited I have been in a long time, since the birth of my children probably. God knows this has been unbelievable and I have been truly blessed. I appreciate my teammates and these guys welcomed me here and just gave me an opportunity to do something special."
While Waters has been excellent along the offensive front all season, Waters said the Pats defense was particularly what set them apart and allowed them to head back to the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.
"First of all, they're the real MVP of this game, without a shadow of a doubt. You look at how many bad situations they were put in today and they held their own. They create a turnover and we give it right back. We get a turnover on special teams and they hold [the Ravens] to three. They did an unbelievable job of creating pressure, but yet tackling guys. I'm sure there are some things that they'll want to clean up, but more than anything, we put them in bad situations and they kept us safe and clean and kept us in the game."
