Super Bowl 2012: Larry Izzo Played For Patriots In 2008, Coaches For Giants Now

Larry Izzo is an a very awkward spot on this Super Bowl Sunday. Izzo played for the New England Patriots when they were beaten by the Giants in Super Bowl XLII in 2008. He is an assistant special teams coach with the Giants today as they face New England in Super Bowl XLVI.

Here is Izzo’s memory of the loss to the Giants:

“I would say that was a low moment as a player,” said Izzo, who spent eight of his 14-year career with the Patriots. “You’re there and there was a lot on the line, big picture, and we didn’t get it done. We got outplayed. Whenever you lose it sucks. Multiply that times a million and that’s like losing the Super Bowl. That’s about all I can say about that. It was a great game and all the credit goes to this team right here (the Giants) because they beat us that day.”
