Denver Broncos defensive end Shaun Phillips got a reminder about what’s really important in a supportive text from his son after his team’s devastating Super Bowl loss.

Phillips shared the text exchange on his Twitter feed after the game. It started with his own text, which said to Jaylen, one of his three sons, “Sorry I let you down,” after the jarring defeat by the Seattle Seahawks.

But his son promptly texted back, “It’s ok daddy u r still my hero.”

Phillips’ response was great, too, when he answered, “Well at least we get to hang out now,” a reminder of how much time and commitment all athletes spend away from their families.

It’s no wonder Phillips was feeling down after the game. It must have been hard for the Broncos players not to dwell on one of the biggest Super Bowl losses ever, but Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning refused to use the word “embarrassing” to describe the game.

“Embarrassing is an insulting word,” Manning said in a new conference after the game.

Manning used the word “disappointment” instead, repeatedly, and then told ESPN, “I don't know if you ever get over it.”

Others echoed the disappointment in interviews after the game. Phillips told the New York Daily News, “We got kicked in the chin. We feel like we let the whole Bronco country down.”

“It doesn’t feel real,” Terrance (Pot Roast) Knighton told the Daily News. “It feels like a nightmare.”
