NEW ORLEANS —
Now that he's back in the NFL championship, Boldin is drawing on his experiences from 2009.
The Super Bowl is unlike any other game, with a longer-than-normal halftime and long delays following warmups and the coin toss. Though football players are creatures of habit, Boldin said he and his teammates have to be prepared to adjust their normal routines.
"Everybody is used to going out and warming up at a certain time. Coming in the locker room, having a certain amount of time in the locker room before you go back out. Having a certain amount of time before the coin toss," Boldin said. "You can toss all that to the side, because it's completely different. (You can't) ... use too much energy or get too excited too early."
