Logan Ryan wasn’t asked about anything specific, he was just asked for his general thoughts on the win over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI when the Patriots came from 25 points down to win.

In his 1:30 answer, Ryan was very passionate about the season and also gave a message to kids to not give up even if life gets challenging.

“It’s so fitting because this is where this team was, man,” he said. “We were counted out at the beginning of the year with [Tom Brady’s] four-game suspension. Throughout the year we were playing OK and the defense was counted out, the offense was supposed to carry us. Then we didn’t play any good quarterbacks, but Matt Ryan was pretty good and he looked pretty good. Julio Jones made amazing catches. We just kept making things hard.

“There was no halftime adjustment. There was no big speech. We said keep doing what we’re doing and that’s what we had to do. We had to get a stop and get a score and get a two-point conversion and keep doing it. [What] the thing is that makes a champion, it’s not about shutting everybody out, making everything easy, it’s about when you get knocked down you get back up and respond. That is what this team did all year. It kept getting knocked down. We kept responding. We kept coming to work and no one in that locker room, not one person lost faith in the play-calling and how we were playing. We all knew we were going to win, we just didn’t think it was going to go that way. No one lost faith.

“We kept it going and it’s a testament to all the kids out there. If you keep it going, it’s not going to be an easy road, it wasn’t for me. It’s a bumpy road at times, but if you keep going and have faith, believe in yourself and believe in the people around you and surround yourself with right-minded people, you’ll be a two-time world champ.”
