You can't put just anybody back there and simulate what Mike can do. With Seneca here, he's really going to give us a good look.

I think his being sick has actually made us focus up a lot more.

They are a different offensive without (Vick) in the game, ... You can get after the quarterback. We said, 'Let's turn the heat up on this guy.' .

He's an amazing athlete. It's always exciting to get a sack on him. It's really rewarding, and it takes a load off your shoulders.

That's probably a side of him you wouldn't see.

Chuck and Grant really worry about stuff like that because they're team guys, and it's working out really well for everybody now. I'm not trying to be selfish, but the difference this year is everybody's really working together.

He's basically the same guy. He has good feet on him. He did a really good job last year.

At a time like this you really see how really important he is to our defense. He's the creator and he's got all the guys he wants in here. With him gone, it's been a little different. But we're still running the defenses he calls.

I wanted to pick it up and score, but I knew I had to cover it first. So I landed on it and kept rolling. I was hoping to roll right into the end zone, but I didn't quite get there.
