“I would cry after losses when I was a kid and pout. But I played like that.”
“You realize that you can’t win ‘em all. You try to win ‘em all; you get frustrated, but you gotta have a short fuse either way. Success in the NFL is just as deadly as allowing yourself to kinda wallow in sorrow. It works both ways.”
“I really want to do everything I can to try to win a game or win on a play. You get fiery; you get chippy out there, but a lot of respect, I never have anybody, like, talk trash in my career in the league, or I don’t talk trash. I think guys respect the fact that I’m coming.”
“I still love the preparation of the game. I think that actually helps you heal faster, still being around it; it keeps you motivated. It keeps you engaged, and I want to be around my teammates.”
“I want people to perceive me as a guy who wants it. That I play the game with passion and desire. That I’m athletic, that I’m fast, and I’m relentless.”
“Anytime you do anything, you want to know who was the best at it.”
“You look at stats for a guy who is a pretty good linebacker, he’ll make 100 tackles. You make 100, you’re averaging seven or eight tackles a game. If you play every down, that’s a good number.”
