49ers' Chris Culliver, already on hot seat for antigay remarks, now on defensive after Super Bowl loss

BY DANIEL BROWN, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS

NEW ORLEANS -- This time, Chris Culliver saw no need to apologize.

Despite surrendering a 56-yard touchdown pass as part of what one teammate called "a rough one," the controversial 49ers cornerback defended his play after the Baltimore Ravens' 34-31 victory Sunday in Super Bowl XLVII.

"I don't care if they was targeting me or not," he said. "They weren't getting open except for the deep players."

And also: "How many pass breakups did I have?"

And also: "They made their plays, we made ours. You can't stop everything."

His brief session in the locker room marked the second time this week that Culliver found himself answering uncomfortable questions. On Thursday, the second-year player from South Carolina spent his news conference apologizing for the anti-gay remarks he made during an interview with comedian Artie Lange two days earlier.
