"I don't think it's going to affect us at all personally because we have a lot of guys on this team, let alone the offensive line, that can come up and step up if one of the starters come down," offensive tackle Flozell Adams said. "So I have no shadow of a doubt that Doug will do just as good a job _ if not better than Pouncey _ being in there for this Super Bowl. And I mean that."
"It's special to bring back the throwbacks, for all the guys to wear them," Adams said. "They're all still walking around with them on. ... I'm grateful for it."
