Right now, I'm enjoying it and having fun.

We were playing to win. We weren't coming in here feeling sorry for the New Orleans Saints. We just didn't get it done.

We're going to have the ball in our hands a lot on offense this season, because that defense of ours is as stout as any team's in this league. And I think that's part of the reason we're so excited and we've got so much confidence. This team works hard. We're just looking forward to getting the season started.

... I use that stuff now even more than ever. A lot of times when you first come in, you're getting by on your speed or your athletic ability. When you start to lose that, that's when you start going to that kind of stuff. At that time, those guys were using that stuff and I was lucky to pick it up at a young age.

Now that I really think about it, of all the people I've known in all these years, it was those two guys that were most instrumental in my career.

I'm going to throw a name at you and see if you remember him, ... Roy Green. He was a heck of a receiver. Remember him?

I told them it's tough for me, being 37 years old, to handle two-a-days, especially in this heat. At my age it's just hard to lose eight or nine pounds in the first practice and then come back out in the afternoon.

He smashed my chin. That didn't feel too good.
