It was a good ball by Landon, but it's like a kid in a candy store. I was already thinking about my celebration before I even headed the ball.

It couldn't be set up in a better way. It would be great to get a result against a team like Mexico and qualify for Germany at the same time.

I couldn't do anything except ride the (exercise) bike and do some upper body work to stay somewhat fit. I was just miserable. But the success of the team kept me happy and gave me something to strive for.

I'm getting there. It's more from the mental standpoint now. There will be a little bit of pain, and in my head I think I'm making it worse and I know I'm not.

I'll let Bruce make his decisions, and I'll be fine with whatever. I'm just happy to be back with the guys.

No, it's not 100 percent, but it's close. I'm almost there. I'm just happy to be back in camp and with the team again.

I've seen three guys like that.

I can't come right out of the boot and step on the field. I really want to play in the playoffs. But it just doesn't make any sense to go out there and hurt myself even worse.

But I wasn't myself in those games.
