He doesn't care about guys rushing him one bit.
I would have liked to play better. But I felt comfortable. I'll probably be disappointed with how I played, some the decisions I made. But that's why we have next week.

We have talented guys, and my job really is to get those people the football. As a backup, you just want to go in and not have any hiccups when the starter is out of the game. Just move the ball and have things work. It's like being an offensive lineman in some ways -- you don't want to be noticed. That's fine with me. I don't need a lot of attention, don't want it.
