Nick Collins was a huge catalyst for the Green Bay Packers in their Super Bowl run in 2010-11. He made the Pro-Bowl that year, and had one of the more productive games for a secondary player in Super Bowl history. His lead changing interception for a touchdown off of Ben Roethlisberger in Super Bowl XLV gave the Packers the momentum, and was an intricate part in the Packers becoming champions in Super Bowl XLV. However, after the game the Super Bowl MVP went to Aaron Rodgers, and none of the media hype came towards Collins. Even before the big game Collins exclaims,
I made it to the pro-bowl 3 times in a row and on media day no one was at my podium. In the last ten minutes reporters started showing up, and I told them it’s too late, but by the end of the game you will remember my name
A promise that his doubters will never forget he kept.
