It feels good for us to show some heart and come back after we were down. We showed what we were made of.

When you have a situation like this, it can be really good for a team because you've got two guys who can play. It can also be a bad situation if the team does get divided. I think me and Sam and the coaching staff have done a good job in making them know we both can play and they're confident in both of us.
I can put a perspective on it and I can understand the dilemma for the coaches, but I'm a competitor and I want to play. I feel I deserve every chance to prove myself and to play. But I do realize there's somebody I'm competing with who happens also to be a pretty good quarterback. I'm just trying to control what I can control and not let anything else bring me down or frustrate me.
I think it puts us, to be honest, in a tough spot a little bit, only because we're both competitors competing for the same spot. We both want to play. We came here to play.
Before the game, I just felt good. I was getting off the bus and told the coaches that if this was a basketball game, I could score 50 points.
