Former Kansas City Chiefs guard Brian Waters won the first two playoff games of his career this season in New England but he was denied a Super Bowl ring when the New York Giants defeated the Patriots, 21-17, in Super Bowl XLVI.
I was rooting for the Patriots but only because I wanted to see Waters get a ring. He was a big part of the Chiefs and Kansas City for a decade and I think you wanna see guys like him (and Tony G) reach the top of their profession. For that reason, I'm a little disappointed in the result.
And we weren't the only ones. Before the game, Chiefs CB Brandon Carr tweeted: "I want to see B.Waters win a ring tonight! That's all that matters in my football world right now."
Waters is turning 35 years old on February 18. Retirement has to be on his mind, despite signing a two-year deal in New England. He told reporters at the Super Bowl that he'll take 2-3 weeks to decide his future.
I'd be surprised if he didn't come back. He had a really good season for the Patriots showing he still has it. He knows New England will have as good of a chance as any team to win it all next year. The money probably doesn't hurt either.
