Super Bowl game day arrives; age is just a number

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (WBAY) - Game day at Super Bowl LII sees Tom Brady looking to become the oldest quarterback ever to win a Super Bowl. Two years ago everyone knew it would be Peyton Manning’s last game at Super Bowl 50 when he played at age 39. Brady is 40. Heck, he’s 40 and a half, but he’s not near finished with this game.

TOM BRADY, Patriots Quarterback (8th Super Bowl appearance): "Why does everyone want me to retire so bad? I don’t get it. I’m having fun. My teams doing good. I know I’m a little bit older than most of the other guys but I know that I’m enjoying it. Obviously enjoy the experience of playing in this game. It’s been a dream come true. Many times over."

On the other side of the field, Nick Foles is obviously making his first Super Bowl start. Foles wasn’t starting football games until the last month of the season but his coach has gotten him prepared for the big stage.

Nick Foles, Eagles Quarterback (1st Super Bowl appearance): "With Coach Pederson, he understands the game of football just as good as anyone I’ve ever been around and he knows, he’s an aggressive coach but he’s also a smart coach. He wants to keep the defense off-balanced and he does a good job of that. Every time a play comes in I understand what he’s looking for. Why he’s calling the play."

Foles is probably a little stressed out right now but Brady is right at home.

BRADY: '"This very much feels like a week that I’ve been used to. I think that’s been a real positive for me."

On the other end of the age spectrum the Packers Bryan Bulaga still the youngest player ever to start a Super Bowl. He was 23 years old back in Super Bowl XLV.
