“Last week was definitely one of those physically, mentally taxing games. You think you have the game there three minutes to go, you’re up double digits and they come back and win. It’s mind blowing. It’s frustrating.
“There’s plays before that last drive where we ran the ball three times that we could have made to ice the game. There were interceptions we could have had that could have iced the game. There’s so many things that could have been done. We just have to find a way to make one of those things happen and we’ll get the result that we want. It’s just a matter of somebody taking the initiative to make the play.
“Getting through the rest of the season by a sense of pride, eye in the sky really. Everything you’re doing you’re putting on film and everybody’s going to see it.
“The whole thing about the record is tough. You can’t help but to think about it when everybody around you is talking about it. That’s the main thing. It’s something that’s reachable, tangible. Do I want it? Yeah, that would be fantastic. I’m going to play my butt off for it, just try to take advantage of the opportunities given.
“The fact that it wouldn’t be in a winning season is tough, but the big thing … it’s not changing the way people are playing me or anything like that. So it will still be very significant if it does happen.
“Getting the franchise record along the way would be big. Herman Moore was the big receiver back in the day. It was a really big thing for teams to have big receivers. To take over a franchise record, that means a lot. Any kind of record you get in this league, it means a lot. They’re hard to come by.
“Looking ahead to Sunday, winning at Lambeau would be huge. Mainly for the reason I haven’t won there in my career. Especially when you love to play there, place with history and stuff behind it like that. That makes it that much more special.”
