“During the bye week I relaxed with some good friends, old friends, some teammates and so forth down in Miami. I wanted to see some sun. I got a good amount of relaxation, sitting by the pool, had great dinners and enjoyed my friends’ company. It was fun to be there and look around. I’ve only been to Miami twice, so it was nice to go back down and check it out on my own terms.
“I watched all of my rushes during the bye and just thought back on how I’ve played throughout the season, where I’m at right now, where we’re at right now as a team and how I can better myself to help better the team. I wasn’t necessarily pleased with how I started the first half of the season. It wasn’t a horrible start, but it wasn’t the best start that I was looking for. I’m looking to be able to come back in the second half with a fresh start, newfound energy and get ready to go in balls to the wall.
“We’ve got eight games to take care of, starting first with a great rival in Chicago when we go in there on Sunday. It’ll be exciting. I want to take care of these eight games and get to the playoffs, but first and foremost, we have to take care of the first game which is at Chicago.
“We played Chicago pretty early in the season, and got to see them when they were down, now we get to see them when they’re up as a team and it’s an opportunity to play them at their supposed best. I look forward to going against a very potent offense, which they are right now. They seem to be going on all cylinders which is fine for us, we love a challenge and we’re definitely ready to defeat this challenge and take care of business.
“As for the ‘Dirtiest Player Award,’ for the defensive players who said that they would want me in front of them, I appreciate that, anything else other than that, I really don’t care. That’s not going to win me a Super Bowl and it’s not going to win me an NFC Championship; when it does, then I’ll care. When it’s a valid award of being an All-Pro, a Pro Bowler and things of that caliber, then I actually recognize and appreciate those.”
