07:31 AM ET 02.25 | Many fans were angry when video surfaced of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski dancing with his shirt off at the Patriots after-party following the defeat. Gronkowski, though, said he was just blowing off steam with family and friends and still feels the sting of the loss. "It was a great season overall," he said. "The whole team gave everything they had -- every ounce of sweat. And myself, too, I gave everything I had from the Baltimore game to the N.Y. Giants game. You give every ounce of sweat, and it just happened. I was with my family, my friends -- people I never see. We were just having a fun time together. Obviously the emotions, you don't want to lose that game. You don't play that long, go to the Super Bowl and want to lose."
