I wanted to prove a point: Why trade me? I am still one of the best backs out there.

It was like unbelievable, ... There were so many holes. Some plays I tried to get too pretty ... and I got caught in the backfield. I love this line. They are a big group of lovely people, really.

We came out flat. We didn't tackle well. We need to get back to the fundamentals. From a defensive standpoint we played well. But offensively, we couldn't get anything going.

Right now, we're just trying to get focused. We just want to play and not speak to the media.

I'm disappointed. We needed this work to get ready for our district games.

It's just like an NFL locker-room, ... You got people here who love you just for you not because you are a good football player.

We're in a game where, we know they're going to score their points. How are we going to respond to that? How are we going to handle the adversity?
