Mitchell said. ''He's still ticking pretty good. No question the system you run in is very important. How do you get your yards? Ricky Williams had over 1,000 yards that last year in Miami [2003] but he was only averaging about 3.5 yards a carry. That's tough, tough yardage. Your body will only take but so much of that. Corey can get those yards, but he gets them outside, too.

He was very respectful and said all the right things.

I take (low rushing numbers) personally. That's a reflection on me.

My frustrated days are over. I'm too old to be frustrated, ... All I can do is work to get better. I think I've been tested for situations like this. I'm not going to say it's not a concern, but it's not the end of the world. I know it's going to get better.

I know you guys are waiting for this big eruption and it's not going to happen. I'm telling you. That volcano done blew its top a long time ago. It's done. It's done. I'm calm. I'm just ready to work this week.

[-- Corey Dillon had a tremendous preseason and looked to be in mid-season form following the Pats' third exhibition game, a win at Green Bay, but he was bottled up against the Raiders, who held the Pats to 73 yards on 31 carries. Dillon finished with 23 carries for 63 yards but had just six runs for 3 yards at halftime.] Did you see how big those guys are? ... They have DE.

There really is no pressure on me because the team was basically set and they were winning Super Bowls without me.

I just can handle (difficult times). I've been there before. I know what it takes and I'm prepared to get it going. I'm battle-tested in that area so it's not frustrating at all. It is what it is. I just have to work through it. I don't see no difference, but we're playing some tough teams and we have to find a way to get it done, no excuses.

I think it's a great move for me, a great move for the organization, ... I'm just happy to be a New England Patriot.
