We've always had a chip on our shoulders.

He was a good kid. I'd see him on the practice field. He would ride on the team planes. This is a tough situation and my heart goes out to the family.

Every team thinks of their fans as the 12th Man. I don't see why it's a big deal. The 12th Man is our fans, and they made a difference.

I knew he was special from the first day when he took over the huddle. The huddle, that?s the linebacker?s house.

Coming out of the Dallas game and through that Giants game, that's when things really started to pick up for us. We've had players go down and other guys had to step in, but everything kept going. We didn't miss a beat.

I'm sure that the average person thought we would fold up right there. That's all everyone thinks we're about, anyway. Alexander, Alexander, Alexander. But it's about the brotherhood. Shaun's a great player, but we have a lot of weapons around here.

The teams that really believe in each other understand the game is not over. If your brother went out there and fumbled the ball, go out there and get the ball back for him. Let him know we're going to get the ball back. That's how you win games. If you feel sorry for yourself, it's over.

They traveled to every game with us.
